About Me

Widely regarded as one of the top five best wedding photographers in the world, Jerry Ghionis’ theatrical and iconic images have redefined modern wedding photography. In 2013, he was named as a United States Nikon Ambassador.  With the flair of a fashion designer and the ingenuity of an architect, his style can be described where vintage glamour meets contemporary fashion. Renowned for his creativity, he not only has the ability to capture the natural magic on your wedding day but he creates magic of his own. His natural love and empathy for people creates powerful visual story telling.

Jerry was named in the first ever list of Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the World by American Photo magazine. He won the WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) Wedding Album of the Year for eight times among his long list of accolades and WPPI included Jerry in their Top Five Wedding Photographers in the World. Jerry was also named as the 2011 Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year by the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). For four years in a row Jerry has achieved the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) Diamond Level Photographer of the Year Award. In 2011 Jerry was named by PDN magazine as one of the top photography workshop instructors in the world.

Jerry is available for wedding, portrait, fashion and special event assignments anywhere in the world.

We really look forward to working with you soon.  We work hard to make this a great experience for everyone involved.  Below is a testimonial from one of the models that we worked with at a recent workshop:

"Thank you SO much for sending us the beautiful photo’s from the workshop! We absolutely love them! <3  They are actually the best photos I have ever seen of myself. So, thank you Jerry for capturing the real ‘me' on camera!

I haven’t done many paid gigs, but I have a feeling I will never be as respected and appreciated as I felt while shooting with you two. Somehow, you managed to make the paid models feel like they should have been paying you for being part of such a great experience, and getting outstanding, edited pictures to boot!!

Matt and I were blown away with your professionalism and kindness and we are truly honored to have been a part of your workshop."
