How would you describe your style/approach?
I’ve always felt that the best photographs come from those moments when you and your guests are totally at ease, having an incredible time and are able to live entirely in the moment, so rather than lurking in the background, I love to simply hide in plain sight by blending in with your guests, be in amongst all of the action and have an incredible time alongside you! With this approach, I love to capture each moment as it naturally unfolds and create a collection of photographs that are beautifully relaxed, emotive and truly honest to you and your day.
What does your Full Day Package Include?
I love to put everything that I possibly can into each wedding that I'm lucky enough to be a part of and make sure that I'm there to tell the entire story of your day, so rather than having a set number of hours, I like to keep my pricing really simple by having one full day package, where I'm completely yours for the day until at least 10pm, and I'm happy to travel anywhere in the UK at no extra cost. Please feel free to get in touch with me for my full brochure with further details.
Do you travel outside of London?
Yes, I'm always excited to shoot at different venues & locations, so there are no additional costs for travel & accommodation within the UK, and I always plan to stay within a two hour drive of your venue the night before your wedding.
How many hours do you typically cover on the day?
I'm completely yours for the day, so I’m happy to arrive at any time in morning and I always stay until at least 10pm, which is usually 1-2 hours after the first dance (typically 12+ hrs).
Can we meet up before the wedding?
I would love to be able to get to know you both before the day, whether that be over some drinks in London, or over Zoom if you're further afield, and I'm always at the end of the phone if you ever want to chat about your plans or ideas leading up to your day.
Do you offer Elopement Packages?
Yes, If you're planning an Elopement or Micro-Wedding, I would love to be a part of it and I'm happy to offer a few smaller packages if you're planning to get married between Mon-Fri (or Saturdays out of season).
Do you offer albums?
Yes, I'm proud to be able to offer Fine Art Books by Folio Albums for any of my couples who wish to have a bespoke album made to display their favourite photographs. Please feel free to get in touch with me for a full brochure with more information.
From the first time we met, Josh understood the very essence of what we wanted our day to be; relaxed, informal and fun, which is exactly what he captured in so many beautiful shots. From the moment he arrived, Josh blended seamlessly into the day's events, from the early morning prep, right through to risking life & limb by venturing onto the fizz fuelled dancefloor later on...working his socks off throughout, and receiving rave reviews from our guests! Josh has an absolutely incredible talent, is wonderfully friendly, accommodating and really just an all-round superstar. We are so unbelievably grateful to Josh for playing such a fantastic part in our day and for providing us with the most amazing array of treasured memories. We honestly could not recommend him highly enough.
We have just received the photos and we couldn't be happier! Josh managed to capture the essence of Bali and our wedding in a way we didn't even think possible! He is so talented! Josh even did a pre-wedding shoot at a nearby waterfall which was a lot of fun and gave us some great additional shots in a different location. We literally couldn't have asked for a better photographer to come out to Bali with us. Thank you so much!!
If you’re agonising over which photographer to go with for your wedding, you can just stop the search right now! We cannot recommend Josh highly enough. From the very first communication, right up until the photos were complete, Josh has been an absolute delight to communicate with – he’s easy to get hold of, always willing to offer advice, flexible, and just simply a lovely person to talk to! On our wedding day, Josh was at the venue early taking pictures of the surroundings, and then expertly covered the whole day, from bridal preparations until things got lively on the dance floor. Josh was a lovely presence and blended in with the wedding perfectly. Not only did we think it, but I heard many times from the wedding party and other guests that they were impressed with his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to ‘herd cats’ when necessary. The result was a collection of absolutely beautiful photos which perfectly capture the events and happy mood of the day. The pictures are edited with care and attention to detail, and we’ve enjoyed looking through them many times. A massive, massive thumbs up from us!
We’ve just received our photographs and I’ve spent most of my time looking through them in tears ...happy tears of course! I honestly cannot recommend Josh enough, the photographs he took are beyond beautiful and ones we will treasure forever.
