Josef is the ultimate professional
Having Josef as our wedding photographer really made the day so much more special. He is the ultimate professional. Nothing was too much. We can't actually believe how lucky we were to find Josef on such short notice. I would recommend his services to all. In fact, me and my wife are trying to work out when we can use his services again maybe a christening. The wedding album is very high quality and more than what we imagined. I just want to say thanks to Josef for his hard work. Worth every penny.

Brilliant - I'd recommend Josef to anyone!
Josef is a great professional photographer. When I hired Josef I was slightly concerned as I was not able to meet him personally, but on our wedding day he arrived earlier and we finalised full venue. He was very corporate and understanding. Through our wedding day he was just great and took lots of excellent photos. The photos were sent to us within 10 days as he promised. We were very pleased with the photographs. Brilliant and very professional job was done by Josef. I would recommend Josef to anyone who is looking for an excellent professional photographer. Yash

Josef went above and beyond - such an amazing job!
Charmaine: I cannot fault Josefs work at all! Josef went above and beyond for our special day! Josef called us personally once before the wedding to introduce himself and discuss the arrangements and what our specific preferences were e.g. candid photo shots, specific shots to be taken and the itinerary for the day. Josef spent the whole day at our wedding, and I literally mean from early morning to midnight! Josef was very patient with the hecticness of a wedding and just went with the flow in terms of taking natural shots! Josef captured our whole day and even little moments which were more natural photographs. When we received our photographs, we were over the moon with the high quality photographs and the different shots Josef had taken and some that we didn't even realise he took! Josef did such an amazing job and we would highly recommend his services to EVERYONE! We have already said that we will have Josef for any other events we may have! Thank you so much Josef for capturing our special day and for our wonderful photographs that we will treasure forever, and it's all thanks to you! James: Firstly I must commemorate JOSEF HOLMES on his work he is an absolutely fantastic photographer cannot fault his work in any way shape or form. Josef covered our wedding day on 24.8.19. Before the day itself numerous telephone conversations and organising how we wanted our day , this would be morning, afternoon, evening, and night . He captured everything in such a special way that we will treasure forever. Not only the main shots either but the candid ones too and the comedy-esque ones too . So not only now do we have memories we have the perfect pictures that he caught of our day for us to look back on in time. Cannot thank you enough Josef. Josef goes the extra mile with everything he does he has flare and passion for his work and you can tell this when you meet him. This isn't just a job to him: he loves what he does as well and the pictures our proof of that. Myself an my wife cannot thank you enough and we have already passed his details onto several of our friends for any of their upcoming events. Josef you are a gentleman and a scholar and if could give more than 5 stars I would: highly recommended. All the best, JAMES

We couldn't be happier - thank you so much Josef!
We count ourselves very lucky to have found Josef as we were down to the wire with wedding planning, but the quality of service we received was outstanding! Josef was well organised and reliable, meeting us before the big day to scope out the best shots at the venue and understand what kind of styles and photos we wanted. For two camera shy people he made us feel very comfortable and all our guests commended him on his courtesy, enthusiasm and professionalism. When the final product arrived we were astounded by how beautifully everything was captured. Josef’s work is incredibly varied but the quality and talent is clear to see in every shot. We couldn’t be happier and would thoroughly recommend Josef to anyone. Thank you so much Josef for capturing the most memorable day of our lives for us on camera!

Josef was professional and easy going - fantastic!
My wife and I were lucky enough to have Josef as our wedding photographer and we couldn't of been happier. He was very professional and so easy going it really put us at ease, especially as I'm not a fan of having my picture taken generally. The photos came out fantastic and we were so pleased! I fully recommend Josef to anyone, thank you again.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

One of my favourite weddings to shoot so far was a destination wedding in Cape Town. Not only was the scenery was absolutely stunning, the Bride & Groom were so full of life and laughter they were an absolute pleasure to shoot.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, relaxed, fun, elegant, beautiful.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I thoroughly enjoy being the photographer on the day itself, but I feel the most pride when I've finished editing. I love sitting back, taking one last look through the album filled with images I'm really happy with, and waiting with excitement to hear what the client thinks once I've sent them. That feeling of pride is magnified tenfold once you get the feedback from the happy couple, having just viewed their photos for the first time!

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

Prepare and organise as much as you feel necessary beforehand, but on the day itself let any worries go and just enjoy it!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

One couple had very multicultural backgrounds, with various countries that were of great importance to them. As a testament to them, they both wore items of clothing that had connections to those places of meaning around the world.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We'll have a consultation chat before the wedding to make sure you're happy with the service I'll provide. We'll also discuss your preferences regarding the style of photography and any other requirements you have. I'll then visit the venue before the wedding to ensure I'm fully prepared to take the best shots possible on the day.

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

Everyone is different, and each couple I've photographed have had their own ideas of what is most important to them in terms of photos, which I always want to accommodate. However, there are the obvious shots that simply can't be missed - the rings being put on the fingers, the 'first' kiss at the end of the ceremony etc. My favourite photos, however, are usually the ones that capture a genuine, happy, and intimate moment between the couple when the photo is not staged.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Just as everyone is unique: so is every wedding. I'm always really happy to take special requests for any out of the ordinary shots! One of the many I can think of was a photo of an Indian shrine to the members of family that had sadly passed away. As is customary for Indian weddings and out respect to those family members, it was to become the first photo in the physical wedding album.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

With regards to photos, don't feel downhearted! There are plenty of great photo opportunities that are only possible when it's raining. I always bring a nice big luxury umbrella with me for the couple shots just in case.

Describe how you got into photography.

I have loved photography from a very young age, and remember playing around with my parent's old camera before being given my first digital camera as a present in my teens. From then onwards, it developed from a hobby to a career, with my passion for it sustaining throughout!
