We're Jonathan Burton and Bonnie Burton, a husband-wife team of award-winning photographers specializing in portraits and commercial photography. The images we create will help you remember those moments that you never want to forget.
Our full-service studio is located in the heart of the High Country, just east of Boone, North Carolina, and we proudly serve our clients in Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Linville, West Jefferson, Winston-Salem, and beyond. We're available for travel!
Finding the right portrait photographer can be a really confusing undertaking. You'll find an array of people with the title of photographer from those just getting started, part-timers working for extra money, and true professionals who excel at their craft. Jonathan and I have over three decades of combined experience and our studio has been in business for over 20 years. We create portraits of newborns all the way to centenarians and family groups of two to fifty-two. Our portraits celebrate those important moments such as senior year, anniversaries, and milestone birthdays.
We're classically trained portrait artists. We've spent countless hours in seminars and classes learning from the best of the best as well as teaching other professional photographers. Our creative and technical skills in lighting, posing, and choosing the right location are fundamental ingredients to the success of our portraits. Consider the importance of these elements:
We can create three different types of portraits - classic, illustrative, pictorial - during your portrait session. We'll discuss what's most important to you before your session and make certain we know your priorities.
While we're taking a break from photographing big weddings, we'd be thrilled to create engagement, bridal, or happily-ever-after portraits for you. We'd also welcome the opportunity to photograph your elopement.
Working together as a husband-wife team, we know the tenderness of a love story first hand. We are experienced, classically trained, and technically skilled, and our images have been described as Story-Telling-Meets-Fine-Art.
Before your wedding, we can create Engagement Portraits and Bridal Portraits. After the wedding, we're available to meet you for a Happily-Ever-After session. Perhaps the weather kept you from getting the scenic images you were hoping for on your wedding day OR you just want those epic portraits that just weren't possible with a hectic wedding day schedule.
Living and working in the High Country gives us the unique opportunity to work not only as portrait and wedding photographers but also create images for our commercial clients. We've photographed everything from architecture, interior design, products to lifestyle images used on websites, advertising campaigns, and in annual reports. Again, our technical and artistic skills combined with years of experience help us to be successful in the area of commercial photography.
We also specialize in professional headshots and can create those both in our Boone, NC studio or out on location.
Although our studio is located in the heart of the High Country just east of Boone, NC, we often work in the surrounding communities of Blowing Rock, Linville, Banner Elk, West Jefferson, Jefferson, Wilkesboro, Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Lewisville, Mooresville, Huntersville, Concord, Charlotte, Matthews, and Lake Norman. In the eastern part of the state, we have clients from Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Cary, Raleigh, Wilson, Morehead City, Emerald Isle, and Atlantic Beach. Working outside of North Carolina, we've been as far away as New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Atlanta, Washington, DC, and Orlando.
