JFW Photography was created by Jonathan Watkins; a local Chatham Native. Jonathan has had a passion for photography since the time he was young. With a dream of capturing memories and offering professional, affordable photography, Jonathan launched JFW Photography. As a self taught photographer, Jonathan spent many years perfecting his techniques, acquiring only the best equipment and learning and studying from some of the best photographers around. After spending five plus years successfully shooting weddings and other like portraiture, Jonathan decided to take his company into a different direction; Real Estate. Jonathan noticed that Cape Cod did not have any affordable Real Estate Photographers. After perfecting his technique and processes, Jonathan began working with several big time real estate brokerages such as Kinlin Grover, William Raveis, and Keller Williams. It was not long until other brokerages, big and small, saw Jonathan’s beautiful work and began working with him as well.
After shooting Real Estate for 6 plus years, Jonathan decided to expand his team and his services in order to offer floor plans, drones and aerials, and also bring back portraiture into the mix to become a more available company. Although Real Estate photography is still Jonathan’s main focus, he is very proud to have such a wonderful team to handle the rest of life’s important moments. Today, Jonathan and his team are proudly serving Cape Cod and the Islands and slowly branching out to off Cape also.
Jon has always had a passion for photography. As a young boy, he would go through film like it was going out of style, shooting everything his eye could see. Growing up, Jon was always kept busy with his many many hobbies such as photography, cars, animals, racing and all things mechanical. In order to fund his passion for photography, Jonathan quickly became a master level mechanic at his family auto center. After acquiring enough funds, he created JFW Photography with the dreams of capturing and preserving peoples timeless memories and providing a still shot in time.
To this day, Jon still has many hobbies and is often working on his farm, enjoying his horses and mini donkeys, out building his newest racecar, or at the track taring up some tires.
Although Jon is always busy, he is looking forward to continue living the dream and keeping his company going for many years to come.
Nicole, just like Jon, has had a passion for the arts and photography since she was young. She drew and painted as a child, and frequently used her mother’s film canon camera. In High school, she took one singular professional geared photography class and was instantly hooked and knew her career path. She received her first DSLR as a college graduation present and has never looked back. After studying amongst some of the best, and learning the ins and outs of the wedding/portraiture photography business, Nicole set out to start her own company. She has been professionally shooting for seven plus years. Her favorite thing to photograph would be brides on their wedding day. She loves creating epic portraits of brides and grooms that involve the landscape around them. She loves shooting the details, arranging the dress, and showing off their raw natural beauty. Nicole joined the JFW Team last year as the Lead Portraiture photographer.
Lindsey O’Connell is a third generation Chatham wash ashore. From a young age, Lindsey showed great interest in the Real Estate Industry. After obtaining her degree at Rodger Williams, Lindsey decided to follow her passion and go for her Massachusetts Real Estate License. After selling real estate for 8 years, Lindsey acquired her Brokerage License and she joined the team at Orleans Village Properties. In Lindsey’s downtime, she enjoys all things Cape Cod, from clamming and hiking to shopping and supporting local business. Although Lindsey still actively sells real estate, she joined the JFW Team about a year ago as the new Floor Planner. Having a real estate agent doubling as the floor planner creates a smooth and easy flow as she already knows what agents want to see.
