DO YOU SHOOT DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
YES. YES. YES. I love shooting destination weddings. In fact, I love them so much I throw in a pre-wedding shoot on location one or two days before. I find these a great opportunity to get to know the couple a tiny bit more before the big day. My passport is always at the ready!
WE'RE USELESS IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, DO YOU PROVIDE ADVICE / GUIDANCE?
You wouldn't believe how much I hear that... Especially from the grooms! It's absolutely nothing to worry about. After we meet you will realise i'm incredibly relaxed and easy-going. I have ways of working with a variety of different clients and you'd be amazed at how easy it is on the day. It's often the moments in-between the 'poses' that provide the real gold! Aside from the couple snaps I work my socks off to capture those lovely natural shots of you both without even knowing i'm there.
WHEN IS THE FINAL BALANCE DUE?
Any time from one month to one week before the big day. Happy to take payment in instalments.
WILL YOU VISIT THE VENUE BEFORE THE BIG DAY?
Unless I have photographed the venue already, I will research the venue and give myself ample time on the day (or the night before if it's a destination wedding) to take a look around. My candid approach, and the fact I am a destination photographer, means I have vast experience in working with different venues no matter what shape or size.
HOW DO WE SECURE THE DATE?
I ask for a small deposit equalling 15% of your total package cost - This is a non-refundable deposit and is deducted from your final balance.
Joe captures the best in every photo he takes. His wedding photography style is classic and elegant and so impressive coming from a solo photographer. Not only that, his presence and persona is warm and friendly so he blends into your day like a chosen guest.
My wife and I can honestly not rate Joe highly enough! His fun, personable and professional approach got the best out of us and our guests. He captured our day and everyone involved so beautifully and we would not change a thing. Thank you so much Joe.
Joe was a fantastic addition to our day, he was laid back friendly and made everyone feel at ease. Joes photos were fantastic, they were so creative and stylish! Joe comes highly recommended and if we needed a photographer again we would use Joe straight away.
Joe was our engagement and wedding photographer and was absolutely amazing! We were so overwhelmed with our photos, he caught some epic moments we will treasure forever. Joe’s specialism is definitely covert photography, we didn’t even realise he was there on our wedding and it put us at such ease, we didn’t feel like we had to over-pose or we’re being rushed around. We couldn’t recommend him more, and he has great bants ????
I am so pleased that we found Joe to photograph our wedding day! Unfortunately we had to cancel our original July wedding due to Covid-19, but Joe moved to our new date in September 2020 without any issues. Great communication beforehand via phone to discuss our wishes for the photography and just to generally get to know each other. On the day itself, Joe was a lovely person to have around and brought a lovely warm, positive energy to our day, mixing so well with everybody (even though socially distanced!). Despite all the pandemic wedding restrictions, we felt so relaxed and had the most wonderful day. We are in love with our photographs - Joe has a way of capturing everybody's personality so well. Such natural, romantic, stylish pictures that our family will treasure forever.
