Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
In the last 8-years, I have met some lovely couples and captured many special memories at some amazing weddings! It gives me a real thrill when couples comment with excitement when they first see images from their wedding day. I take huge pride in not only delivering a superb gallery of images, but also in striving to make my business one of the best in the UK and constantly staying on top of my game in an ever changing profession. WHAT IS MY STYLE? ​ My favourite style of wedding photography is documentary or reportage style - capturing sharp, vibrant images featuring real memories and natural emotions. I'm also very laid-back - that's just me. Your wedding day isn't 'my show'! When you hire me to cover your wedding, your investment will ensure that you're booking a photographer who will capture natural memories - but who will also have the experience to guide you through your wedding day with assurance and confidence without taking centre stage. That's your job! ​ THE SERVICE YOU RECEIVE ​ I should mention that I pride myself on the customer care and level of communication that I offer. ​ I believe that the customer experience is paramount. Get this wrong, and even if the photographs are great...the last thing I want you or your guests remembering is "what a pain that guy doing the photos was!" ​ Also, I don't saturate myself in photoshoots, so much so that my creativity (and energy levels!) are at risk of suffering on your big day! ​ I only shoot 40 weddings per year. This just gives me opportunity to put plenty of thought and preparation into your booking with me - giving you excellent service from the moment of booking until you sign off the final images!

On the day Joe was perfect.
After booking our wedding we started the hunt for the photographer. Joe was booked within days after coming across some of his work he had previously done at our venue. We hadn't met or spoken with Joe but we knew instantly we had chosen the perfect photographer for us. Joe's work matched everything we wanted and more. The communication with Joe following our booking was always responded to timely and efficiently. On the day Joe was perfect. He got the shots he wanted effortlessly and allowed our day to flow without ever getting in the way of us enjoying the day. The preview shots we have seen are amazing and both my wife and I couldn't agree more that we definitely picked the perfect photographer. Family & friends are loving the preview photos and can't wait to see more. Thanks again Joe

Can't thank Joe enough for his dedication
Tom and I got married on Saturday (it's Monday) and we already have 56 perfect photos from Joe. I cannot recommend Joe highly enough. Not only is he a very talented photographer with a clear passion for what he does, but he's also kind, friendly and good humoured. Joe listened to our request for lots of natural looking photographs, he wasn't intrusive or demanding but we still have the most amazing pictures of our special day. He even helped out in the house on the morning of the wedding when he could! We can't thank Joe enough for his dedication (he was with us for nearly 12 hours, above and beyond our expectations) and for his talent! We can't wait to see the rest of our photographs in the next few weeks!

Passion for his job...
Would like to thank-you so much for being our photographer on our wedding day on Saturday 29th June 2019 at Tower Hill barns as we couldn’t thank joe enough! Where do I start the day was our best day of our life’s and joe took the most amazing photos for us! The following day when I woke up I had a gallery of 60 photos! They were stunning I was so emotional the day after the wedding! The day really goes so fast! Joe is such a lovely man, great humour, and I’m so glad we chosen him as a photographer he surely does have a passion for his job role! He worked with us incredibly! He helped out in the bridal room, got us though the day letting me know all the information that was needed! I really wasn’t keen on having a videographer as I hate cameras in my face all day but was happy to go ahead with a photographer as I fell in love with joes photography skills straight away on his Facebook page and website! And joe did not make me feel uncomfortable the hole day! I thought what was lovely he stayed a couple of hours later to get some photos in the dark evening as being in the summer the dark nights doesn’t really come till quite late! I would defiantly recommend joe in the future he made our day magical again seeing the photos! We want to thank you again joe, from Rebecca and Joseph ward!

our gallery is everything we could’ve asked for!
Joe is such a lovely guy and amazing at what he does. He captured our big day perfectly, and was open to any suggestions. I wanted a bit of drama in our photos; our gallery is everything we could’ve asked for and more. Joe is very professional and like other reviews say, you hardly notice he is there (sorry Joe!) Thank you so much for everything, you really are the best. Nat & Adam xx

Best thing we spent money on!
My husband and I got married on the 6th July at the titanic hotel in Liverpool. I booked the venue in October 2017 and had seen Joe’s page on Facebook beforehand and knew that I needed to book him. We met then and from the beginning Joe was amazing to work with. Joe asked us some questions when we first met, ones I wouldn’t even think of which showed the passion he had for his work. As joe hadn’t worked at the venue before, he asked to join us at a meeting to have a look round. Whilst I was speaking to wedding coordinator joe disappeared for 5 minutes and come back with pictures on his phone with ideas for photos, I was amazed! On the day joe started at the hotel taking photos of my bridal party and myself, he made us all feel so comfortable and got on with his photos whilst 5 women and hair and makeup artists ran round the room! He also was happy to go to my husbands mums to take photos of him getting ready, nothing was too much for him. At the group photos he was extremely efficient and patient with my loud family 😂 and the time my husband and I had alone to take photos was a much appreciated break that he made us feel so comfortable. We had 46 amazing photos by the next day to show family and friends, I cried at how beautiful he had made me feel. I couldn’t recommend joe enough, as I keep saying to everyone, best thing We spent money on for our day!

The photos are better than I had ever imagined!
Joe was the first person we booked for our Wedding on 11th November 2017 even before the Venue and Church after seeing his work at a family Wedding in 2016 we just knew we had to have him capture our day. I can’t stop looking at my photos and every time I do I get emotional and remember how amazing our day was. The photos are better than I had ever imagined just stunning. Joe is such a lovely man and very professional it was an absolute pleasure to have him capture our day and it would not have been the same without him. I would 100% recommended you book him for your day. So many people commented on how lovely and amazing he was. Can’t wait to see my album � Thank you so much Joe you have captured memories to last a lifetime xxx

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Reportage, relaxed, unobtrusive, happy, stylish!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The quality of the final images - but also the swift communication.

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

Ensure that you don't make your day too regimented - and get chance to see each other at various points!!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My typical process would be to ensure that a couple felt reassured throughout the whole process from booking to the delivery of the final album. Ahead of booking, I always try and chat with the couple either online or over a coffee. Then, a month before the wedding, we'd meet up to talk through the timings for the day and to re-establish our relationship. Then on the day, I'm there to capture moments without stopping things to pose you, and I'm always there for reassurance and to guide you through the day too in a friendly and confident manner. After the wedding day, I always aim to send you some preview shots a day or two later - and then have your final gallery ready within 4-6 weeks depending on the time of year.

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

A confetti shot!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A good sense of humour & a big umbrella!

Describe how you got into photography.

By being capable of working under pressure, enjoying socialising and capturing natural emotions and happiness.
