Jonny is one of the UK’s most in demand wedding photographers. He blends those timeless moments, captured throughout the course of the day, with a mix of contemporary and fine-art photography to show the bride and groom at their very best.
In this day and time, I feel that there is an overwhelming push to be who society wants you to be, and to gracefully take your two weeks holiday and be happy with living life in a box. I have made my own small moves against that grain, however it always impresses me to see people like Lisa and Alex who fully take that plunge and live a life truly worth living.
It makes it all the more beautiful that you two have found that freeing reality in eachother, and are taking such a life journey together. Being able to capture just a glimpse of that beauty through my camera gives me hope, that in my small way I am also helping to inspire others to get out there and live their dream as well.
My name is Jonas. I watch too much television, drink lots of coffee, and I like to draw on stuff. I’m in love with a girl named Mary. She has freckles and loves me right back. I’ve been shooting weddings nationally in the U.S. now for three years with my work featured in publications and blogs around the world,
including the UK’s Mixmag, Seattle Bride Magazine, Unique Bride Magazine, Green Wedding Shoes, Rock N’ Roll Bride, Offbeat Bride, Snippet & Ink, Elizabeth Anne Designs, A Practical Wedding, and Hi-Fi Weddings!! Lisa & Alex, you are shining stars! You are two of the most genuine people I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph, and you continually inspired me to know what life is for: travel, adventure, friendship, and love!
Brian and Brandon Wright
B. Wright are artists, first and foremost, who delight in helping you to craft and capture your dreams. Twin brothers with identical style vision and facade, utilizing a broad array of fine art and experimental film processes (from 8mm negatives to 4x5in instants) to create photographs as unique as each of their clients. Every shoot, every image, is specially crafted to contribute to your story in a way that moves the heart and imagination.
“When we heard Lisa & Alex’s story and were asked to partake in their undying ceremony, the inspirational cogs and gears started turning! We utilized many untraditional techniques and modified equipment from 1909 to the 21st century, to bring out the mood of macabre romanticism, which was so passionately executed. It was a wickedly good time, deserving of timeless documentation.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your adventure. Ive been photographing weddings for about 10 years now and I still remember the day I got Alex’s email with your desire to have a Mayan wedding while you were here in Mexico. Part of me, was wondering what this couple that were willing to sell their house, buying an old van and
travelling around the world and have weddings in all different types of cultures. So, I figured you were either stark mad lunatics or really cool people wanting a fun adventure that you would never forget. And from my perspective it would be a story either way and am I ever glad that I helped you. We had a lot of fun, celebrated your love Mayan style, drank a good amount of tequila, and got some great photos both above and below water… So all is great and again, thank you for the adventure!
Colette and Maya work as a team, known as Conch Creative. Separation of duties include Maya being Photographer in Chief and Colette being email and diary Keeper in Chief (as well as Creative Director and General Pooper Scooper).
A unique and recognisably British email arrived in Colette’s inbox. She was intrigued. There was something comforting about the charm and politeness of Alex’s request, even though it was asking them to find time in an insanely overbooked schedule to do something for free for people they didn’t even know and possibly might not even like. Luckily for Alex and Lisa, and unluckily for Colette & Maya – money has never been a priority for Conch Creative. It’s not that they don’t need to eat, but they value adventure, spontaneity and life experiences above and beyond anything else – which is how they ended up living in Belize. That’s what clicked. Alex and Lisa shared that spirit and there was simply no way Conch Creative could say no. Maya is known for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, but in this instance that gift was hardly a requisite as there was nothing ordinary about a road trip across Belize, a wedding in the jungle next to a waterfall and a shoot in a junkyard.
Conch Creative are proud to have been part of the 2people1life experience and thrilled to know that they’ve made friends for life.

Last week I went with my wife to Antigua to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed at El Mesón de Maria (in a way to thank Anita for her hospitality for all of us) and I when I went up to the terrace I felt this very special sensation.
I stood up in for a while in the very same spot your Mayan ceremony was celebrated and thanked God for all the good things I received during this year, having the opportunity to meet you one of them.
Wishing you the very best for all the years to come.
Con mucho carino, Jose Pablo
I am a Boston native who has been living in the Manuel Antonio area for almost a decade. Twelve months a year I shoot destination weddings in Costa Rica – from small intimate elopements to extravagant all out celebrations.?
I heard about Lisa and Alex’s travels and jumped at the chance to co-photograph their Costa Rica wedding with Christina Craft. We ended up shooting in some unique places, like a reconverted Fairchild C-123 airplane from the Iran contra affair, and a cave that has been outfitted to serve as a bar. Lisa and Alex are the coolest, laid back couple you’ll find and I ended up hanging out with them another couple of nights while they were in town.
My name is Christina and I shot Lisa & Alex’s wedding in beautiful Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (I was joined by my good friend and awesome photographer Kevin Heslin). When I read their story I knew it would be a blast to photograph one of their ceremonies.
One of the neatest attractions in the area where I work is a crashed plane called El Avion, which is now a restaurant and bar, that was part of the Iran-Contra scandal in the 80s. It made a fun backdrop for their wedding celebration.
After shooting a lot of international destination weddings and I to stop living out of a suitcase and base myself in one beautiful corner of the world. Since I love monkeys, Manuel Antonio was the place I chose. I’ve been ranked three times in the top 10 with the prestigious International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers and this year I placed three times as #2 and once as #3 in Canada with the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada organization. My style is a bit funky and arty, mixed with unscripted photojournalism. You can find my work online at http://www.funkytownphotography.com
Juan Felipe Rubio
I’m a Colombian photojournalist with a keen interest for storytelling. The moment Alex contacted me to see if I was interested in participating on the project I said hell yes!. I mean, how can you resist the idea of being part of such fun and loving adventure?
I feel honoured to have met them and be a part of their love story.
Since I was little I started to develop skills related to drawing and art. I studied graphic design but I always loved photography and since a few years ago I have the opportunity to work in this wonderful medium.
Since the beginning I loved the idea of taking photos of Alex and Lisa at their wedding in Colombia.
When Juan Felipe Rubio invited me, the idea of taking photos to this wonderfull couple in Villa de Leyva, after I heard their story, sounded fascinating. And it was!!
I am glad to have had the opportunity of meeting them and spend that day together. It was wonderfull! They are amazing!
When Lisa and Alex contacted me regarding their wedding in Ecuador I really didnt had to give it much thought, I was in from the beginning!
I love to meet different people with new ideas, just enjoying their wave in the sea of life.
Being mothers day in my country i had to beg my family to cut me some slack and let me get to the gathering a bit late. Spent all morning with my mother to make up for the missing time, but it was well worth it, i got to come back home to my family and tell them the story about this two awesome guys living their dream and traveling around the world celebrating life and love in the temple of the sun!

As a Pro wedding photographer for over 20 years I am always looking for something different to get my teeth into along with the week to week of wedding clients throughout the planet. I enjoy so much the passion of my clients as I too am very passionate about my craft.
For this reason , when I was asked to cover the Chile wedding for Lisa and Alex I was taken with their passion , not just for each other but the passion they have to find the different culture aspects in weddings which probably only destination wedding photographers such as myself get the privilege of sharing in. It was a pleasure to shoot for them and more of a pleasure to meet them both. I really enjoyed being a part of this and being involved in their adventure. It’s full of AWESOMENESS…
Emiliano Rodriguez, Juan Pablo Mansilla
We are adventurous photographers willing to be part of the most amazing wedding experiences here in Argentina but also willing to do it worldwide. Our premise is to let it flow and capture the essence of each moment as the founding stone of a new family´s memories.
When we found that Lisa and Alex were coming to Buenos Aires for their 23rd wedding we didn´t doubt to offer our vision not even one second. We are also travel lovers so this was a way of being part of their roadtrip too. And we are glad and thanked that they end up choosing us because we have a blast doing it, I hope you can also experience that through our images.
“I got into the project, I embraced the cause. I had the opportunity to be with them for a few days and I saw how much they like each other. I saw that the story was real, not something comercial. That made me more interested in photographing, I had the opportunity to capture ‘true love’!”

As a destination wedding photographer, I adore traveling, meeting new faces, and experiencing new cultures, so Lisa and Alex were honestly a perfect match for who I am as a photographer and as a person! A few months ago, I came across Lisa and Alex and their wedding adventures,
not only did I find them to be so true and hopelessly in love as a couple, I appreciated that they too wanted to experience the pure adventure of life, together, and that was beautiful in and of itself!
Capturing Lisa and Alex’s 25th wedding along the mountains of Colorado could not have been more perfect. These two are simply one of those rare couples that come along and just make you love wedding photography that much more.
Morgan Lynn Razi and Amir Razi
We are Morgan & Amir of Morgan Lynn Photography, an international wedding photography studio based in Houston, Texas. We’re a little sappy and totally in love with weddings (and each other for the past 17 years!) The talented ladies at Belle of the Ball in Houston reached out to us to see if we would be interested in capturing a very unique wedding story…THE NEXT DAY!
It was short notice but how could we resist being a part of such an amazing wedding journey. Not only did we say “yes”, but at the end of the day, we were both incredibly touched by Alex & Lisa and their beautiful sunset ceremony at Las Brisas Farm.
Alex & Lisa, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your adventure (and for letting us talk you into jumping off fences and climbing hay bales!) We can’t wait to see where in the world your love takes you
When we first heard about Lisa & Alex, we were just as surprised as anyone probably is when they hear about a couple traveling the world getting married over and over. After the initial “wows” and “that’s awesomes” that we expressed, we decided pretty much right away that we wanted to be involved.
Living just outside of Las Vegas, we were a four hour flight away from New Orleans, where wedding 28 would be happening.
We were thinking to ourselves that maybe they wouldn’t want to work with us since we weren’t from New Orleans, so we didn’t even bother mentioning it. Once Lisa and Alex decided they wanted to work with us, we booked our flights and hotel, and we were in New Orleans only a week or so later. It all happened very fast, and was all very fun and exciting. I had never been to New Orleans, though JoAnne had been many times, so this was extra special for me.
We arrived the evening before the wedding and got to meet Lisa and Alex for a short period of time that evening at Bloody Mary’s house, the place the wedding would be taking place the next day. We also were able to meet Gail, the producer from 20/20, Joe and Terry the wedding filmmakers, as well as several of the crew and other folks helping with the wedding. It was good to meet everyone the night before so that we were already somewhat comfortable with each other the next day. JoAnne and I left not too long later and went back to our hotel and rested up for the what was sure to be a big day.
The morning of the wedding was a bit different from our usual wedding shoot. We showed up at an RV Resort where Lisa and Alex had been parked with Peggy (the van) overnight, and there was a big TV crew with all of their intimidating gear, and lots of stuff happening. JoAnne and I just kind of settled into our normal flow, though there were lots of working around the other crew-members to stay out of shots, etc. It was really challenging, but quite fun to experience, and Lisa and Alex were so fun and easy-going, it made us definitely feel comfortable almost immediately. We spent the rest of the morning driving around inside of Peggy with Alex at the wheel and Lisa riding shotgun as we scouted out an amazing bakery in the French Quarter, along with a little liquor store; we were collecting items for the voodoo ceremony.
Once we arrived at Bloody Mary’s for the ceremony, things were again pretty hectic with lots of cameras, Jay from 20/20 showing up, and working in a tight space to stay out of each others way. But it all went down very smoothly, and the ceremony was just incredible. Afterward we spent time at a local park as Lisa and Alex did some final voodoo blessings with Mary, and then we hit some local cemeteries and did some portraits and fun shots as the sun went down.
After a short break to freshen up, we hopped a cab with Gail and met up with Lisa and Alex, and Joe and Terry at a brilliant local music venue/bar in a very cool neighborhood. We listened to some brilliant brass/ragtime/punk rock hybrid band and drank wine by the barrel until we all decided we were very hungry. We went across the street to yet another cool local spot and had some great food and some more laughs. It was one of the funnest times we have ever had, and something we will both remember for a lifetime. Not only did we get a chance to see a beautiful city, we also met and made new friends with some incredibly talented people. Most of all, we now have two new, dear friends in Lisa and Alex;, two people whom, thanks to social media, we are able to continue to keep up with on a near-daily basis even all these months later. Thanks for having us be a small part of your lives as you go on this wonderful journey. I hope we meet again someday in the not-so-distant future.

I feel I am a genuine and humble gentleman who loves to think way outside of the box…even with all the adventure of jumping out of airplanes and yes, wrestling alligators, I still tear up at almost every wedding I photograph.
To me, it is such an honour and privilege to capture those most intimate moments on wedding days…
Sure I can say I am an award winning and published international destination wedding photographer, however, if we meet you are much more likely to hear about the migration of the Monarch butterflies or to be invited on some adventure to a remote beach, or in Alex and Lisa’s case; 5 weddings in 5 days, including a world record setting wedding reception flash mob with Pop Idol Rod Stewart walking Lisa down the isle.
Best part ever, I can call Alex and Lisa friends I will have for life!
