Hello, thanks for popping by!

I am Jo and I do what I love. And I love what I do.

I have been chasing my dream for a long time. I am a creative soul and found photography to be the best medium to express myself artistically. It comes very naturally to me to see the world through the lens. No words needed- a photograph is worth a thousand of those. My style revolves around creating artful photographs that are natural, ethereal, and timeless. I want to capture fleeting memories and cinematic portraits; influenced by light and emotions and that intimate connection between the two people. 

Being an alternative wedding photographer is all about building a connection with the couple.

 I am eternally grateful to photograph love for a living. I care how comfortable my couples will feel around me, how much they can trust me and what the final product of my creativity will be. By the time you exchange vows we will have met, drunk a cup of coffee, created some beautiful engagement photos and laughed a few times. I can promise we will be at ease with each other. I will keep a cool head when everything seems to be running a little too fast on the day, have a tissue at hand, help with the dress and fix the make up if needed. I always feel utterly privileged to be a part of a wedding day and I do my best and more to create a unique set of photographs to be treasured forever. I see and capture the little details many may not notice at all - grandma's vintage brooch, the unfinished coffee in your favourite mug, and all the little details you have planned - the little table confetti in your wedding colour theme, the immaculate calligraphy on your seating placecards, handmade favours packed carefully for hours by you and your mum. I will not be lining your family and guests for hours, yes we will have some official photographs taken, but I am at your wedding to capture the atmosphere, document how the day unfolds, discreetly photograph your dad shedding a tear, the groom rehearsing his speech and children dancing like it is their party.

We know how you feel being on the other side of the camera! Raf and I celebrated our 7th anniversary with a photoshoot with our friend Gary aka Marshal Gray Photography. Apart from stunning portraits we gained invaluable experience of being in our clients' shoes! 


Things that make me tick

And a few random facts about me:

I studied Politics and then completed an MA in Market Research 

I am a cat person

I do not wear high heels (unless I really have to)

My hair has sported every shade of red and I do not think I have had the same haircut twice

I was 18 when I first travelled abroad on my own and worked as a summer au-pair in France

My adventure with photography started in 2002 with my (then) boyfriend's film camera.

My favourite lens is 35mm SIGMA ART f1.4

I am a pescetarian and so is my family

I keep letters, cards from friends and clients, and little things from my travels 

I am a qualified but non-practising reflexology therapist

And to wrap up.

Weddings are truly amazing experiences for me. The energy, love, laughter and unforgettable memories fill my heart and motivate me to create work with an intention to exceed my couples' expectations. 

After browsing through my portfolio, pop in to my personal photo blog, visit my social media accounts and get in touch - I would be very happy to have a friendly, no obligation chat, ideally over coffee or a glass of wine.

Hope to meet you soon.

Jo
