About

Hey guys!  My name is Jonathan McPhail.  I'm an portrait & event photographer, originally from Texas, but living in New York for over a decade.  A Nice Day To Start Again, a lyric that I stole from Billy Idol's "White Wedding", is dedicated to photographing couples who are interested in having more than just the typical, cliche, "run of the mill" wedding photos.  A Nice Day to Start Again is for people who have a lively soul and a bright spirit…not the drab, lifeless, and "why are we getting married" types.  Bridezillas need not inquire either.   Whether it is engagement or ceremonial photos (or both) that you are looking for, I am here to capture the beauty of your love and, collectively, bring our creativity and imagination to light.  So, tell me your ideas!  Let’s get the creative juices flowing.  The sky is the limit.
