Hey there, and thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled that you’ve found my little corner of the web!
Who am I?
I’m Jon Mold, an award-winning wedding photographer. I spend my time shooting destination weddings – moving throughout Europe, the UK, and beyond, as well as engagement, maternity, and family photography.
Additionally, I am a commercial photographer – specialising in engineering and science photography. I also specialise in headshots, fitness, food, architectural and vehicle photography, and creative lighting, editorial, and environmental portraits.
I also work with like-minded artists to create a team of photographers, assistants, and make-up and hair professionals to master all kinds of weddings, big or small, short or multi-day, local or destination, quiet or crazy!
Where did it all begin?
I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire, learning how things work and more importantly how to break them. I then worked in this field for 5 years, but this career path left me searching for a creative outlet. I have always been interested in the arts, following my career in engineer I pursued a career as a graphic designer prior to becoming a full-time photographer.
I’ve always enjoyed photography but never thought in my wildest dreams I could make a career out of it. My previous careers bring so much to my photography from having the ability to push photography both technically and creatively.
When I bravely took the leap into the world of a wedding photographer though, something just clicked. I knew that this was the creative outlet I needed in order to live a passionate and fulfilling life. That, and the love from my beautiful family, is what drives and motivates me every single day. Simply put, I thank my lucky stars that I am in the profession that I am.
What makes me a bit different is the fact that I am a commercial and a wedding photographer. I have an amazing breadth of commercial clients from Alzheimer’s Research UK, Unilever, PA Consulting to Sports Direct that trust me to deliver commercial projects ranging from environmental portraits to creative headshots to product photography. What they get from me is my technical understanding of advanced lighting and creative vision to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I continue to learn and challenge myself professionally which translates into the results I achieve as a wedding photographer. I only shoot a limited number of weddings per year which allows me to be at my creative best.
I have earned a reputation as a professional, friendly photographer that forges meaningful relationships with my clients to deliver stunning wedding photography. I have managed to thrive beyond my wildest dreams, being awarded the #1 UK wedding photographer for Fearless Photography in 2014, 2015, and 2016 – and what an honour it has been! I love the idea that photography tell a story of the past and can be cherished for future generations.
As of today, I have shot a number of luxury weddings – including that of a celebrity wedding, who had the following amazing words to say:
“Not only did they capture truly incredible images, but their easy-going presence really added to our enjoyment of the weekend. And all this with a request for no posed photos whatsoever – not an easy thing to pull off, but they made it seem effortless. Thank you so much for the memories. Literally.”
This is just one of many testimonials that have inspired me in so many ways. It’s true that positive reinforcement results in reward, and it is my clients that have shaped me into becoming the most driven and hard-working wedding photographer that I can be – thank you for that!
Working with a smile!

Since 2012 I have been submitting my photos for scrutiny and judgement by the best in the industry. Awards are only given to the absolute best images that adhere to 3 photographic principles; light, composition and moment. It keeps me honest and I’m constantly striving to better my work when putting myself up against my peers.
