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.
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
The love of my life, Raf, and our amazing daughter, Olivia
Cuddles and hugs
Black and white photography
Dystopian fiction books
Upcycling and DIY
Monty Python shorts
And a few random facts about me:
I studied Politics and then completed an MA in Market Research
I am a cat person (no worries, I will pet your dog too!)
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.
