Jonathan Elderfield

For over 20 years I have been a documentary and street photographer, an artist and journalist, as well as a photo editor, working for world-class news organizations and photo agencies. My street work, “ONLY Chicago” was featured in a solo exhibition at the CUE Art foundation in New York. My work documenting the neighborhood of South Philadelphia was published in 2003 as “Living Under South Street,” by Kehrer Verlag of Heidelberg, Germany. My photography has appeared in many publications, including National Geographic, The Chicago Tribune Magazine, Men's Vogue, Newsweek and New York magazine. As a photo editor I have worked for The Associated Press, The Chicago Tribune, and The New York Times, as well as several photo agencies. I have been photographing weddings during my entire career as a photographer. I work with couples who are interested in a documentary approach and a non-intrusive presence at their event.

"We are so happy we chose Jonathan to shoot our wedding. He arrived early and stayed late, and really captured the great joy of our day with his photographs. Jonathan got so many unique and artistic shots of family, friends and the grounds of our wedding venue--we want to frame them all!"
