Jerry Ghionis

BIO:

Widely regarded as one of the top five wedding photographers in the world, Jerry Ghionis’ theatrical and iconic images have redefined modern wedding photography. Based in Beverly Hills, CA and Melbourne, Australia, Jerry travels frequently on international photography assignments and speaking engagements.

With the flair of a fashion designer and the ingenuity of an architect, Jerry's style can be described where vintage glamor meets contemporary fashion. His images are often simple yet are a complex blend of soul, imagination and technical skill.

Renowned for his creativity, Jerry not only has the ability to capture the natural magic on a wedding day but he creates magic of his own. His natural love and empathy for people creates powerful visual story telling.

Among his long list of accolades: Jerry won the WPPI International Wedding Album of the Year eight times; WPPI included him in their Top Five Wedding Photographers in the World; and he was named as the 2011 Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year by the AIPP; four times Jerry has achieved the PPA Diamond Level Photographer of the Year Award; and he won the 2009 SWPP Photographer of the Year in the United Kingdom. Jerry was named in the first ever list of Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the World by American Photo magazine. In 2011 he was named as one of the top photography workshop instructors in the world by PDN magazine.

Creator of the Ice Society (an educational website for photographers) and designer of the Ice Light (a LED continuous light), Jerry is a rarity in the industry where his natural photographic talent is matched only by his business acumen and his ability to teach and inspire others.

Jerry’s most recent passion is the creation of his non-profit charitable organization named The Soul Society (www.thesoulsociety.org), which he co-founded with his wife Melissa. The Soul Society was created with the specific purpose of caring for poor, homeless and orphaned children in third world countries, one soul at a time.

With the flair of a fashion designer and the ingenuity of an architect, Jerry's style can be described where vintage glamor meets contemporary fashion.
