Love is life’s greatest adventure and I truly believe that it’s love that makes us better, more adventurous and braver people.
I try to capture honest photos that reflect you and your relationship, keeping it relaxed, informal and fun, with a mix of reportage style photos and creative portraits.
For the majority of the day, I’ll be there capturing moments as they happen and creating images to tell your story in my own unique mix of documentary wedding photography and creative portraits. Capturing great images is what it’s all about for me and that’s why I’ll be there from bridal preparations in the morning, right up until the first dance in the evening, and until I know I have done everything I can do to capture your wedding day.
What's not to love!
Happy to travel anywhere in the UK and abroad, my packages are the same the only additional cost is expenses.
Since the very first time we approached Joe to enquire about him being our wedding photographer he has been nothing but professional. He sent us an amazing welcome pack with plenty of information and even a few treats!
Charlotte and I met Joe for the first time when we went for our engagement shoot (after Joe recommended a beautiful location). I am not someone that particularly enjoys having his photo taken and I was a little worried about it. But Joe's knowledge and excellent attitude made us both feel at ease and made the experience very enjoyable. The engagement shoot was absolutely essential for Joe to get to know us and teach us the different poses that we would be doing on the big day.
After the engagement shoot Joe treated us to a cup of coffee to go over the day plan, our preferences and all the little extra details. It was clear how much pride he takes in his work by how thorough he was and how much he wanted make our day special. We both went home that day feeling very excited and we were both incredibly impressed by the photos.
We couldn't have wished for a better photographer for our wedding. From start to end Joe impressed all our guests with his incredible photography skills. He caught all our magical moments so naturally that sometimes we didn't realize he was there. For the group photo's he managed to control a large group of people while remaining friendly and approachable. His technical skill had us in awe, especially after we saw the end result. He could pinpoint the best locations to take the most stunning photos and by being incredibly creative he has eternalized exactly how we felt on the day.
Once the reception had started Joe set up his photo booth for all the guests to put on funny head ware, play inflatable saxophones and pose with an endless amount of crazy things. It was a total hit, everybody absolutely loved it! It helped everyone to let their hair down and start to really have fun. He even created wonderful business cards with a picture from our engagement shoot and his details so all the guests can log on to see their hilarious photo's.
Booking a photographer for your wedding can be scary as you are putting your trust in someone to capture the biggest day of your life. I can assure you Joe truly went above and beyond the call of duty for us and we cannot thank him or recommend him enough. I have heard nothing but compliments about him from all the guests I have spoken to. If you are lucky enough to have your wedding on a day where Joe isn't already booked then book him in now! You will not regret it!
