Jon Athans Photography » Berks County Modern Wedding & Portrait Photography - Reading, Lancaster, Bethlehem, Allentown, Philadelphia


How would you describe your style?

Modern and creative with a dash of traditional. We find unique ways to shoot creative portraits and capture real moments and real connections with your guests and your wedding in a photojournalistic style.  We try to think outside the box.  We have a very honest and easy approach to business.  We want to make clients happy.

Do I get a disc of high resolution images?

All wedding packages include a complimentary USB drive with high resolution photos that you are free to print and share however you want.

Do we receive all of the images taken?

No duplicates or test shots.

How many images should I expect from my session?

The amount of final images for your shoot depends on the type of shoot, cooperation of subjects, length of a shoot and many other factors.  Usually around 30-50 shots for a portrait session and 400-700 for a wedding.

Can I print my photos/use them on social media?

Yes!  Your high resolution images do not have a watermark and we provide both high resolution and low resolution images for use on social media sites.

How fast is your photo turnaround after a wedding or photo session?

Portrait sessions take about two to three weeks and weddings take about two months. Each and every photo that is produced for your wedding or session is individually edited by Jonathan. We do not rush photo editing for quick delivery. The quality of your images is of utmost importance!  For your convenience we do turn around a highlight blog and Facebook post within a few days of your shoot. We want you to enjoy some moments from your event right away!

What should we wear for our engagement, portrait or family session?

Lots of color and texture will help your photos have that extra ‘pop’, but I always want the photos to represent the people.  Bring multiple outfits if you would like.  Changing only takes couple of minutes!  Some nice outfits can really add a lot to a session.

Are you insured?

Yes.  Certificates for insurance are provided to venues upon request.  Please ask two weeks prior to your wedding and we’ll get one put together!

Do you bring back up equipment in case of equipment failure or accident?

Yes.  We come with extra camera bodies, lenses, lighting equipment and even a change of clothes!  We are prepared with enough gear to shoot multiple weddings simultaneously so we are extra ready to shoot yours.

How do we book you?
