Full Description
Nothing excites me more than getting to know you and provide you with unique, alternative images that would YOUR story. No posing required when you are with me, maybe a little directing if needed. The aim is for you to look at pictures and go "I love that ckeeky grin of yours' or 'oh wow this is so me!' " or "I remember that moment when... ' I want to capture genuine expressions and real moments, memories that you can treasure forever. I mainly photograph weddings and families in London but I'll happily travel in the UK, Europe or anywhere in the world really!

'in the moment' shots are stunning
We absolutely loved the photos Joséphine took, especially the 'in the moment' shots are stunning and would say that this is where her talent and creative eye really show! browsed her Instagram before and knew she would have a unique way of capturing the special little moments. We did a (long overdue) engagement/couple shoot just a week before the wedding and that was also an excellent way to get to know her a little too before the big day. We found Joséphine very professional and easy going to work with; she makes you feel at ease, gave directions where needed, blended in with the guests, has positive vibes all round, and set good expectations and timelines around the delivery of the photos (which was very quick - and she already sent over a few photos for us to enjoy on the same evening as the wedding!). Would totally recommend her!

Photos of our wedding were absolutely fantastic
Josephine's photos of our wedding were absolutely fantastic, I was quite nervous about booking a photographer as I've been to so many weddings with intrusive photographers who took ages over the pictures. Josephine was wonderful, got some brilliant, informal shots that really captured both my husband and I, and our guests. She was unobtrusive on the day whilst managing to photograph all the key moments of our ceremony and reception dinner - she even managed to finally get a picture our quite elusive two year old daughter! We are still enjoying looking through our photographs, she has captured some lovely memories that will be with us for many years ahead now. Josephine fitted straight in with our family and friends and it was a pleasure to have her at our special day.

didn't disturb the intimate setting
Josephine took some amazing pictures at our small and intimate wedding at Marylebone Town Hall, and for most of the time we didn't even notice she was there. She was very friendly and discreet, and didn't at all disturb the intimate setting that we had planned for. The pictures are wonderful , and captured the joyful and relaxed atmosphere in a natural way. Josephine was also available at short notice as the photographer we had initially booked had to cancel just a few days before the ceremony. Thank you, Josephine, for these beautiful memories.

managed to encapsulate those unique moments
Jo Elvis is a talented photographer who knows how to capture unique moments and vibes in her photography. For our wedding Jo managed to encapsulate in her photographs those unique moments of intimacy, laughs, laughter with friends and family that tell the whole story about our wedding. I'm forever grateful

She creates images that are unorthodox & charming
Jo has a great eye to create unique photos, she captures moments you didn't suspect and creates pictures that are both unorthodox and charming! She easily unearths the tenderness in couples and the cheeky looks on kids' faces.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

A surprise wedding! All the guests were invited at church for the couple's son's christening. After the christening, I was in charge of distracting the guests while the bride discreetly sneaked out. Ten minutes later, the organ starts playing bringing confusion in the audience. Everyone suddenly looks back to see... A Bride!!! The pictures of people's faces are priceless!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

alternative. natural. quirky. genuine. emotions.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of being able to attract the coolest couples!

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

It's the only party where it's all about the hosts keep it simple (k.i.s.s) and enjoy it! Another number one tip... do not underestimate costs... it always end up being more than what you think it will be!

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

During the wedding breakfast, every guest got a postcard as a name tag. On each postcard was a written a quirky story that happened between the guest and the couple. It made the wedding so very personal!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My typical process with couple is pretty simple. We meet or call for a friendly chat to see if we get along. You wouldn't want someone you don't like at one of the most important day of your life! Then if we do we chat about what you really want to get out of my services and I explain you how you don't have to worry about me the whole day. You make a payment sometime after that et voila! I'm all set to do what I do best: capture instants and turn them into treasurable memories.

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

Some couples decide to skip the couple session and I think it's a shame for several reasons: 1. You both declared in front of all your loved ones that you have decided to commit to a whole life together, that is a BIG thing!!! Taking a bit of time out to process what just happened, just the two of you (and me...) is essential. 'Yes, we did it'!

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

I've been asked to take pictures of the bride with a lion!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Enjoy the day no matter what. Rain ads a little bit of character to the wedding pictures anyway. Polka dot umbrellas look cool.

Describe how you got into photography.

I was born in the city photography was invented so I can honestly say "I was born into it'
