My style and approach to wedding photography
Welcome to my world. It’s one filled with beautiful urban landscapes and mid-century architecture. I’m a London wedding photographer who takes her creative lead from the muted colours and sweeping cinematic grandeur of the city. I love the juxtaposition between the freshly married couple in front of me and a gorgeously gritty backdrop. I love to use the scenery to create cool, unusual imagery for my couples. Something just a little bit different, y‘know? I am not exclusive though; beside cool warehouse and studio venues in London, you will find me photographing weddings in stately homes, barns, European villas and outdoor locations. What I care the most is that you love my photography and trust me to tell your story! Although I’m not big on labels, my approach to photographing weddings could definitely be described as “modern documentary“. You might even call it “alternative”. I shoot in a discreet, unobtrusive way that’s a little bit different to your average. I tend to shy away ever so slightly from stiff, traditional wedding photography. I do, however, pour lots of energy and creative gusto into your wedding portraits heavily influenced by my love for street photography, analogue film photography, architecture. I also care about the small details and stuff that matters to you the most - love, feelings, emotions. No interference on my part, no staging.
It is all about you!
You know what’s so amazing about your wedding day? It’s the connection between you both, the connection that’s been building ever since you both locked eyes all that time ago, building to this. Very. Moment. When I’m photographing your wedding, it’s that connection that I focus on. How you respond to one another, how you laugh, how you joke with one another, I think it’s the beating heart of any partnership. On a day that’s specifically about you two and your friends and family, it’s important that your photographer “gets” you and what you’re about. It’s the best party you’ll probably ever go to, with more joy, emotion and elation than you’ll ever experience in one day again during your lifetime. I have your back! I do not only bring my cameras - I will be there as friend. For me, it’s important that you’re able to experience every moment of it without worrying about the photography. You can leave that to me.
Why you should book me
I recommend browsing my website to see if you like my style and approach to wedding photography. Beside the aesthetics, booking me comes with a few extra perks: I have years of experience behind me, so I know exactly what’s needed on a wedding day: a cool head and a great eye for detail. Having me around is like having an extra pair on hands on deck. I keep things calm and know where to be and when. In fact, I often get mistaken for a guest with a camera! You will get a huge collection of photos. When I’m behind my camera, I’m on the lookout for raw moments, peals of laughter, happy tears and original dance moves. As well as your portraits, you’ll have a varied and vivid collection of docu-style shots of your guests and the riotously good time they’re having on your wedding day. When you flip through your gallery, you should be transported back to this very special day - they should make you grin every time you look at them. No limit on memories you receive!

So we have a prof photographer/friend, an awesome set of photos, convenient and easy experience plus bags of knowledge and advice on the way! Cannot wait to work with you!
Jo was everything we could have hoped for and more! From the first time we spoke with her we knew that she was the right fit for us, and understood what we wanted from our photographs. We had a fantastic engagement shoot with her, which really helped us get used to being in front of the camera. Like many couples trying to get married in 2020 things didn't quite go to plan, but Jo has been so supportive and flexible throughout - and took the most wonderful pictures on our (totally different than planned) wedding day in July! She captured the absolute joy, happiness, relief and hand sanitiser of the day, and we are beyond thrilled with the pictures. We'll see Jo again for Our Wedding: The Sequel next year!
It’s not been easy to navigate our wedding in 2020. We rode the wave of an early Summer postponement and feel incredibly lucky to have had a wonderful wedding day this Autumn. We can’t thank Jo enough for the part she played - not only on our actual wedding day, but on the lead up to it all. Jo offered her kindness, expertise and support from beginning to end. Jo is professional, organised, discreet, calm, warm and built a real friendship with us. It felt so special to have her with us on our wedding day, putting us at ease and capturing every moment as if we’d known her for many years. We had such a special day and Jo was a huge part of that. We couldn’t be happier with the photos Jo has created - they are beautiful and absolutely capture who we are as a couple, the atmosphere of the day and the relationships we have with our loved ones. We just can’t thank Jo enough. She’s wonderful!
I found Jo highly recommended on a bridal page, and I'm very glad I did! From the beginning Jo was organised, and great at communicating. We met to go over what we wanted, and she put us both at ease with her professionalism and friendliness. I knew I didn't need to worry about this aspect of my day any more! On the wedding morning, Jo fitted right in with my wedding party and at the church and venue, Jo discreetly captured everything we wanted. She kept us calm, and considering we gave her such a small window for our couple photos, we were surprised with how many she was able to capture! We loved our photos, and the lovely way we received them! We've had lots of compliments about them, and are very pleased we chose Jo as our photographer. Her photos are beautiful, and she is a very reliable safe pair of hands!
You know that this lady is amazing when one of her clients creates a whole google profile just so she can actually write her a review. Jo was fantastic from the moment we met her in London for a chat and she put us at such ease with both her demeanour and approach to wedding photography. She was happy to provide guidance throughout the whole process but not to push anything on us, unlike one or two we had spoken to before. Her admin and payment site is comprehensive and easy to use and meant we could easily keep her updated with any new information we had ( as we booked her before lots of other bits!). She kept in touch in unexpected but thoughtful ways between booking and the wedding day and then was so fantastic on our wedding day. At least 15 guests mentioned her to us on the day or in cards and the priest was so happy with her as well as she totally got the 'respect' element he had asked for. She worked well with our winter wedding day weather; some romantic and some unusual shots including a quirky 'vogue' esque shot that we all LOVE. The previews we got quickly after the day and the whole album has some amazing gems. Thank you, Jo so so much for making this element of our wedding so stress-free and giving us such beautiful memories. Would highly recommend to anyone for wedding or any other occasion!
Wow!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Martin and I absolutely adore our pictures, they are totally perfect, brilliantly capturing the spirit of our day. Jo and her assistant Aggie did an incredible job, we had tight time scales and they helped us keep to time whilst still capturing beautiful moments, as they happened. Moreover, they were great company - fitting right in with our friends and family. We also had an engagement / practice run session, which I would highly recommend. Spending this time with Jo meant we were more relaxed on the day and, importantly, we had great fun!
