Hi! I’m Michael.

I am a collector of moments and a visual person who makes no apologies for establishing a relationships with my clients. My passion is the strongest when standing alongside others in their most authentic state… in laughter and love.  When you are comfortable, you will glow in your photos!

I am an artist and storyteller who uses a camera as a tool to document you. I can’t turn the artist in me off and I never want to. If my camera isn’t at hand, my eyes are still chasing the light and writing a story with each unscripted moment. I believe my work speaks for itself.

About I AM JAX Photo

I AM JAX PHOTO was founded by me, Michael Bondanza.  My home is in Jacksonville, Florida.  I specialize in weddings, portraits, event photography as well as dance portraits.

My work has been published nationally by Word Entertainment Performing Artists such as: for King and Country, Veridia, Skillet, Family Force 5, and Matthew West to name a few.

More of my work can be seen throughout the various other media outlets.  One of my photos from the Jacksonville Zoo was featured on the opening season of (what was then called) Everbank Field’s “world’s largest” jumbotrons (Tiger image below).

I have been honored to be voted among Jacksonville’s top photographers since 2014!

Wedding photography is one of my passions!  I love to photograph both local and destination weddings.

I guarantee you my very best work and highest quality portraits.  I use only premium print lab products for wall art collections and archival prints to ensure you will be proud to display your piece in your home or office.

My hope is that you and others will relive the moments that I capture and feel the emotions again and again through my photography.

I create a unique experience that is relaxed and fun so that your portraits let you shine through!  If you value your photos, please do not settle for mediocrity that will never be seen on display.  One day photos, along with unprintable memories, will be all we have to cherish loved ones by.  Invest in my professional services that will provide you with quality prints to cherish!  I promise that you will love them!


The name “I AM JAX PHOTO” is derived from “I AM” which is the name that was given to Moses by God Himself (Exodus 3:4).  Jesus Christ is “I AM” (John 8:58).   “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of [Jesus, THE] Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes.” (Romans 1:16)
