About Ron B. WilsonJacksonville's Wedding Photographer Ron B. Wilson began his career very early in life and was always the kid with the camera. He knew he was going to be a photographer and never thought of doing anything else, and he brings that passion to your wedding or event. He studied photography at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. During his education at AIFL he was selected for an internship at The Miami Herald. The internship was an invaluable experience, which help mold him and his talents into the person he is today. He continued to freelance for The Miami Herald after the end of his internship and actually still gets assignments when he is in South Florida. He has photographed everything from celebrities, models, breaking news, and portraits to daily features that have been viewed by The Herald�s 1.5 million weekly readership. He was granted a scholarship from Polaroid and upon graduation he was awarded The Best Portfolio in his graduating class. After graduating he headed off to Budapest, Hungary for another internship with Atlantic News Service. His assignments there ranged from local Hungarian news, to traveling with and covering Hilary Rodam-Clinton�s visit to Eastern Europe to photographing the end of the Bosnian war in Sarajevo. This was the hardest yet most rewarding time in his life.
After he returned to United States he relocated to New York City where he worked in many different fields of photography such as fashion, commercial, architecture, and portraiture. He has covered every possible subject from the World Trade Center Tragedy to the blackout of 2003 and has been published in many publications such as The New York Times, Modern Bride, and The Knot. Ron is a two-time first prize winner in the wedding photography contest sponsored bi-annually by Philadelphia Magazine's Elegant Wedding, winning once in the "candid" category and once in the "kids" category. He recently won an award from National Geographic for his work from Cali, Colombia. The experiences of living and working as a professional photographer in New York have given him the advantage to be better and more well rounded in his life and career. Ron feels that the relationship he builds with the clients is what makes his work exceptional. He brings his warm, engaging personality and high standards to every assignment he does. He uses most of his free time to travel throughout the world from Europe, The Middle East and India to South America shooting stock photography. He uses his cameras to document the lives of people in the places he travels to.
During the past 10 years he has started and worked with some of the best and busiest wedding/portrait studios in the country, realizing that he can bring his passion for telling a story to the exciting drama of weddings. Now, with his own company, Ron B. Wilson Photography, he can blend his love for travel with passion for wedding and portrait photography creating a unique style perfect for destination weddings.
