Mini Interview with Wedding Photographer Jonathan Ong | November 04, 2010

One of the important tasks for my wedding earlier this year was to find a brilliant Melbourne photographer, someone with a unique vision who possessed a passion and keen eye for detail. I stumbled across Jonathan Ong while browsing through Australian wedding blog Polka Dot Bride and was impressed with his quirky and artistic style.

Jonathan recently launched a new website and blog.  "The website is meant to be an experience; a magical journey. I believe an experience cannot be rushed; it must have a relationship with time. The song playing in the background is written by a wonderfully talented friend of mine, Valerie. It's full of heart and I absolutely love what she has come up with. So close your eyes, open your heart, and follow me on a journey of faith, hope and love"

Jonathan was also kind enough to answer a couple of questions for Eat Drink Chic! Continue for my mini interview with Jonathan and to see more of his fabulous work.
