Booking Jonathan is the best decision that we've made thus far with wedding planning! Not only was our engagement shot so fun (he made my fiancé actually enjoy taking photos!), but the photographs turned out amazing! Jonathan has also been great to work with. We are both new to the area, so aren't familiar with many vendors. Jonathan has gone above and beyond his job as a photographer to help us choose other professionals to work with. It's obvious that he doesn't just care about his job, but really wants to make sure that you'll have the wedding of your dreams! I cannot wait until our special day and to see what our wedding photographs look like!
We could not be more happy with our photos from our big day! I was moved to tears when I saw them. Not only did Jonathan capture beautiful moments of my wedding party, but also the details I didn't even think of! He is extremely professional overall and completely non-invasive. He captured tons of gorgeous photos of our ceremony, and not once did I feel like he was in the way of anything at all. He was polite fun to work with, and very prepared. He helped me map out an entire back-up plan in case we had rain that day! Our pictures were perfect just like our big day. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you, Jonathan!!

Jonathan Pollack's work is MAGNIFICENT!! He captured every detail of the wedding with photos that are breathtaking and unique. The photo's are crystal clear, the colors pop and capture the emotions of family and friends. This MOB was able to relive each moment of that incredible day when I viewed the photos. Jonathan is the ultimate professional and worth every penny. Jonathan Pollack is the only photographer you should even consider for your wedding!
We booked Jonathan as our wedding photographer thanks to a recommendation from a friend who used him as their wedding photographer. We couldn't be happier with the outcome! We booked him well over a year out due to his popularity and met up before signing a contract to discuss what we wanted for our wedding. He was really great at guiding us toward things we may like, since we weren't totally sure about what we wanted or which venues would be best for our engagement and wedding party photos. Jonathan was quick to respond to any questions we had about our wedding and was especially helpful when it came to managing the day-of details - he certainly goes above and beyond just taking your photos (and making you look good). Our photos were incredible...well above our expectations, since my husband and I tend to be a little stiff in front of a camera. Jonathan makes pretty much anyone feel at ease and did a phenomenal job catching all of the details of the day without being intrusive - he seemed to be everywhere and also completely invisible at the same time. We received our photos back in a reasonable amount of time, especially given the fact that he doesn't batch-edit your photos. You can definitely see the care that he puts into the final product. We would definitely book him if we had to do it all over again!
We are so glad we chose Jonathan as our wedding photographer! We would 100% recommend him to our friends and anyone looking for a photographer. He was incredibly easy to work with. A few things that really stood out to us: First, he is extremely organized, responsive, easily reachable by email, and always on time (even early!). For a bride who did NOT have a wedding planner and who organized most of the wedding herself, this aspect was so helpful and made things so easy for me. Second, he has a great personality, and made us feel extremely comfortable during both our engagement shoot and during our wedding day. We had several hiccups during our photo shoots (we got totally rained out on our scheduled engagement photo day, and then our February winter wedding was COLD), but he worked with us and didn't even bat an eye. Third, he has a lot of experience. He is totally up for any crazy photo idea you might have, but he has also done this enough that he has plenty of suggestions himself and knows what looks good and what doesn't. He'll tell you if your hair is in your face or if your fiance's suit needs to be unbuttoned for this particular shot. Finally...and most critically...he is an amazing photographer who really takes pride in his craft. You can definitely trust him to do his best on every single job for every single client. He was one of our best decisions for our wedding and we're so happy he was a part of our day!
Truly AmazingReviewed on 4/21/2015
Jonathan was great to us in every way. Not only is he an outstanding photographer, but also has a great personality, EXTREMELY reliable and reasonably priced compared to other wedding photographers. My husband and I both dislike getting our picture taken and Jonathan was beyond helpful to us in making us and our family feel comfortable. We loved that he was very professional and easy to work with but would still make us laugh. Not only did he take photos but he also helped us in many other ways on our wedding day. I chose Jonathan for my photographer because I loved his style but what we got was MUCH more than just a great photographer and I can't be anymore thankful for that. If you are looking for a great photographer that will go above and beyond for you on your very special day, look no further because Jonathan will provide you with that. - Stephanie S.
Captured All the Best MomentsReviewed on 11/01/2014 Laurie S
Thank you so much for doing such a professional job. The moments of joy that you captured on all the faces of my loved ones are exactly how I want to remember that special day. The family portraits are wonderful, but the dancing shots are especially my favorites. I loved that, though several other things didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped, I could rest assured that you had the photography completely under control. My mom even commented how much she appreciated how slick you were at getting candid shots...she didn't feel attacked by paparazzi like at my sister's wedding with another photographer. Thank you so much for the photos.
A++ Wedding PhotographerReviewed on 12/31/2012 Kristy W
Jonathan did a terrific job photographing our wedding day and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding and engagement photos. He was very generous with his time and attention to detail; I see more in his photos than I was able to experience on the actual day! Jonathan is a very talented photographer with a special talent for capturing the emotion behind every moment of the day. His photos are true works of art and we’ll cherish them for generations. I would recommend Jonathan for any occasion – a St. Louis gem!
Can't wait to see the pictures!Reviewed on 12/04/2012 Lesley N
We decided to book with Jonathon after I met with him and he showed me his portfolio and helped me come up with some good ideas regarding timing of our event. He was able to help us get the best we could while keeping close to our budget. Photographers are all expensive, the good ones at least, and Jonathon was able to work with us and give us suggestions so that we could get the most bang for our buck. The engagement session pictures were phenominal- so many compliments and we LOVE them. I know the wedding photographs will be even better, and I cannot wait to see them! The day went by very well- he was able to get pretty much all the shots we had asked for and was good about helping us keep to our schedule, and help keep me calm throughout everything.

If you want to hire someone that you KNOW will be perfect, he is your photographer. He will show up (early) and do a spectacular job. He made my new husband and I look like we were in a magazine ad. Hire him, you won't regret it.
Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 7/09/2012 Amber E
My wedding pictures were more than I could imagine. He captured all of the most important moments and so much more. I get compliments from everyone about how great my pictures turned out.

I came upon Jonathan's info during a random web search and loved the look of his work. Jonathan & I met in person; I found him friendly, professional, accomodating and very personable. I booked him as quickly as possible and never regretted it for an instant. Jonathan was essentially self-sufficient on the day of my wedding - a blessing because I frankly didn't have time for anything else! He was seemingly everywhere at once, getting gorgeous photos of the venue and irreplaceable pics of my family and wedding party, all while keeping us all organized and on schedule. Most importantly, my photos are truly gorgeous! They'll be fabulous keepsakes. Jonathan is a dynamo & an artist. Don't overthink it, just hire the guy!
Gorgeous, natural photosReviewed on 11/23/2011 Barbara S
Jonathan was fantastic in working with us on a price we could afford for our wedding photography, which included a one hour bridal portrait or engagement session. We chose the engagement session, and were THRILLED with our pictures! We have not yet seen the wedding pictures, but we know we will love them. Jonathan posted one of them to his Facebook profile the day after the wedding,and it of course is fabulous!
Amazing photos!Reviewed on 7/13/2011 Leslie W
Jonathan was recommended to me by an old friend. I was impressed from the beginning with his professionalism. We first met Jonathan for our engagement photo session, which was included in the wedding package. Jonathan was very accomodating and drove out to our place in the country to take stunning photos of us in the snow! My husband has difficulty with having photos taken (frequent eye blinking, smiles that are a little strained) but Jonathan did a great job of making Jeff feel comfortable. After viewing our engagement photos, I was so excited for my wedding day. Jonathan did not disappoint! Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning! He did an amazing job with posed photos and also capturing candid shots of everyone. He is different from your average wedding photographer. He has a wonderful eye for things and manages to convey them in photos. I would highly recommend him to anyone without hesitation!
Beautiful photosReviewed on 5/06/2011 Amie F
I could not have asked for more from J.Pollack Photography. Jonathan paid attention to every detail and made me feel very comfortable. His package includes everything you would want, even an engagement shoot! Jonathan is absolutely the best wedding photographer in St. Louis. You will not be disappointed.

Meet The Owner
I spent ten years working as a software developer while I cultivated a love for photography on the side. My first subjects were cupcakes (yes, really!), and I moved on quickly to photographing weddings where I fell in love with capturing such a special day! I followed my dream and switched to photography as a full-time career in April, 2009, and I am still a passionate photography perfectionist. I can't wait to help you remember your wedding day - laughter, tears, songs, dances, toasts, and everything else - through photos!
