After meeting Jonathan and Samantha, I was thrilled to have the chance to work with such a talented pair! Jonathan Ivy Photography was in the process of getting a new logo when i met them and they were ready to get a new site and blog to match the new look!
We started with their site, and designed and developed it to stand out! Here’s a look…
This site has so many fun functions added in, that you really have to go check it out to get the whole effect! Make sure you click on the little button on the main gallery of the homepage to see videos of each of the featured weddings that match the images.
Next up we made a blog to match the site…
Want to get to know Jonathan and Samantha a little better? We asked them a few questions so that you can do just that:
How long have you been in business? 2 yrs
What do you do? We are lifestyle wedding photographers and we are now offering the Jonathan Ivy Photo Booth.
Why did you start your business? Photography has been a life long passion for Jonathan and business management has been a life long passion for Samantha and we both love getting to know people! Place the three together & thus Jonathan Ivy Photography & Photo Booth is born!

Why did you decide to work with Doodle Dog? Because of how impressed we were with Nikki as a person and as a business. All the work we have seen come from her was impressive to say the least and we wanted to be apart of it!

A Day in the life of you consist of: Wake up at 9:30-10am (don’t hate), where Samantha falls into her office chair with a cup of coffee & Jonathan with a bowl of cereal with almond milk. Samantha kicks the day off with reading her blog feeds where she ooo’s and awww’s at all the amazing vendors we work with in the industry. Meanwhile, Jonathan is trying to dive into his 1st project while entertaining all of Samantha’s “Hey Look at this!” “Oh wow this is fabulous!”
We work on things such as edits, blog posts, e-mails, slideshows, DVD’s, magazine and blog submission, vendor galleries and much more while listening to a combo of our client’s slideshow song till around 1pm where we hop up for lunch because we just realized that we were hungry.
After grabbing a quick bite to eat of just about whatever we find around the hudio we take it back up to the editing room and get back to work.
Typically around 3pm we begin to get stir crazy and head out for the day to run errands, meet vendors or just drive around. By 4:30ish we are back at the hudio editing and working. If this is a lucky day where we meet a client, we plug that into the day and get to enjoy meeting new people. We always love having people over! Should this not be one of those lucky days, we will work until about 5:30 where we grab dinner at the hudio or we head out to grab dinner at one of our local joints offering a rockin’ “early bird” special where we eat & drink with the best of the 1950’s (yes, we are always BY FAR the youngest people in the room).
After dinner we head back to the hudio to edit and watch tv until about midnight or so where we head over to hit the sack and repeat the process!
Other: Samantha loves the color Pink & Jonathan’s favorite food in the entire world is ice cream
