You probably already know my first name, Jo. Now, here's a little background: my last name, a Polish surname, tends to be quite the tongue-twister for many. Considering the challenge it poses for pronunciation, I sought a brand name that's easygoing yet vibrant.
Enter "Oasis Photography," my initial brand choice, which I thought was refreshingly original—until a swift Google search revealed its ubiquity. So, I decided to infuse a bit of myself into the brand: Jo from my name and a nod to the oasis that photography often provides—the perfect blend birthed "Joasis Photography." Clear as day!
A mix of reactive documentary photography and artistic portraiture. I like to treat my photos like pieces of art (I know that sounds a little outré but stay with me) in that I try to look for unique, beautiful, unexpected shots that’ll take your breath away. I am heavily influenced by street and analogue photography. It’s gritty but pretty, you’ll find me there! I also like to think of myself as a documentary photographer: I capture what unfolds naturally in front of me. You won’t catch me lining people up for hours, or bossing anyone around. I do offer gentle guidance to poses for you though.
I don’t insist on one, but I find that larger weddings benefit from having two pairs of eyes. A second photographer covers the moments that I might miss, groom/other partner's preparations, alternative angles to the ceremony, candid shots of guests during the couple portraits and so forth. I have a pool of regular assistant shooters who I love to work wiith
Get in touch, we’ll have a chat, sign a couple of docs, then we’ll sort out your 20% booking fee and you’re done. I’m all yours.
Couple sessions are handy in that you get to work with me before the big day, so you can get used to me and how I work and I, in turn, can get to know you which will make for better photos.
You’ll have over 40 beautiful high res images to take away with you and the whole thing is a great confidence boost before the wedding day.
I offer pre-wedding shoots in London and on weekdays (my weekends are full of weddings as you can imagine!).
I make a BEAUTIFUL album. And they’re such a wonderful heirloom to keep.
Here are a few key details:
I offer fine art matte albums. They are weighty and lovely, the paper boasts a beautiful texture and my albums arrive in a stunning and sturdy matching box.
Available in four sizes:
8x8” | 10x10” | 12x12”
- They usually have 30 or more pages.
- A selection of covers: linen, velvets premium linen, leather and faux leather.
- Vast selection of stunning colours.
If you order your album at the booking stage, you can snap pre-order prices! Identical “parent” copies come with a nice 20-30% discount, just so you know.
You will get a private, super sleek online gallery that contains a slideshow with highlights from your wedding and all your photos! I can send you a bespoke USB in a presentation box too if you’re feeling retro (this costs a tiny bit more and ordered at that request).
During wedding season, I'm booked almost every week. Hand-selecting and meticulously editing each photo is a priority for me as I strive for perfection in every shot (which, given the 500-700 images you'll receive, does take quite a bit of time!). Ensuring the highest quality images is my focus, and during peak season, it typically takes around 9-12 weeks to deliver your full online gallery.
However, there is a little sneak peek! Within the first week after your wedding, you'll receive a generous selection of preview images—a perfect choice for those heartfelt 'thank you' cards!
I usually share a few of these straight away on Instagram and Facebook or create a mini blog feature to give you a glimpse of the magic captured on your special day
