Full Description
Are you looking for a relaxed, unobtrusive wedding photography experience? Do you love soft & dreamy imagery? My couples want their day captured with a creative eye - in a way that honestly represents their story. Captured on film & digital - for a classic style that stands the test of time. - ABOUT ME - I'm Joanna (but feel free to call me Jo, we're all friends here!) I live in Birmingham, UK, with my partner Joe & our little baby boy, Louis. I love pastel colours, wild flowers and organic textures. I'm a little obsessed with true crime podcasts & anything crime related on netflix! (recommendations always welcome!) After several years working as a fashion & beauty photographer in London, I started photographing weddings in 2013 and fell head over heels in love. I'm passionate about photographing people & feel so honoured to be invited in to people's most treasured days. It will never get old being able to have a glimpse into people's personalities and stories. Each one unique and special.

Jo was able to capture the whole day perfectly
Jo photographed our wedding and she was amazing!! We met her for an anniversary shot a few months before and she put us totally at ease. We're not the best at having our photos taken but Jo made it really easy and we were both much more relaxed in front of the camera after. On the wedding day Jo was able to capture the whole day perfectly without being intrusive. She listened to exactly what we wanted and we had complete confidence that's she'd get the shots we were hoping for. We've got our photos back and couldn't be happier! Thanks again Jo! Xx

A joy to work with !
I worked with Jo on a styled shoot I co-ordinated having come across her beautiful website via a search engine! She had just the style I was looking for and I hastily contacted her in the hope that she would come on board for the shoot - she said yes and I am so thrilled that she did ! Styled shoots can be rather busy with lots going on and you have to work fast ! Jo calmly went about capturing all the details and the whole picture - she has an amazing eye for that perfect shot ! She is creative, lovely to work with and definitely a calming influence ! She is also quiet, unobtrusive and one of the nicest people I have ever met ! I am looking forward to working with Jo again so she can work her magic on my next project !

Joanna, you are wonderful and I can't thank you enough!
Joanna is a talented and thoughtful individual and an amazing wedding photographer. We have some beautiful photos of our wedding from the 3rd March 2018 (her first wedding of the year) but the whole experience was wonderful. I feel like Joanna put me at ease with her warm and friendly personality - she has a very calming aura! It was snowy weather and very cold but Joanna did such a good job capturing our day despite these unpredictabilities. I would highly recommend Joanna - her photographs are beautiful, romantic, modern and tasteful. She is obviously very passionate about her work and that is very clear. Joanna, you are wonderful and I can't thank you enough! Lots of love, Helen and Greg Harradine x

Worth every penny
Jo is so talented and I knew as soon as I saw her website that I wanted to have her as our wedding photographer. We were blown away by not just how great our engagement and wedding photos were but also at how lovely she is! Such a wonderful lady who is fantastic at what she does. She put us both at ease in our engagement shoot and on the big day. The weather also didn't stop her capturing beautiful pictures. She felt more like a friend and many of our guests said how lovely her and Kerrie were. They captured so much of the day, we had pictures of everyone and all the details. We both would massively recommend her! She is worth every penny. Such a genuinely lovely person and great at what she does. Even how beautifully presented our wedding photos were sent to us was so nice! I still follow her instagram as I love seeing her work. I would also love to book her for a couple photo shoot in the future. Thank you so much Jo!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

gentle, dreamy, soft, timeless & relaxed

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm a pretty chilled out person & am often told by clients (and friends!) that I'm a calming influence. This is a quality I'm most proud of and value deeply within my business. I always want those around me to feel a positive and relaxed energy. This has proven to be invaluable when it comes to my photography & capture moments authentically.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't let traditions and rules become more important than what YOU want for your day. Do it your way & enjoy the process!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The wedding day & the wedding photos should always be about who the couple are. I approach the photos in an organic way so that the moments can unfold naturally in front of the camera. With only a little bit of gentle direction when needed, I prefer to keep things as natural as possible - no stiff poses here!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I don't believe in there being a set shot list every couple should follow. Each wedding day is different & beautiful in it's own way & so I believe you shouldn't worry about any "must have" photos - just enjoy your day & all the photos will be precious to you because they'll be a true representation of it!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Rain doesn't have to throw a spanner in the works for your photos! I always come prepared with clear umbrellas for smaller group shots and couple portraits. If your venue has space for indoor group shots, it's always helpful to have that as a back up!
