The most beautiful photos
Wow, where do we start? The most beautiful photos have been received and we couldn’t be happier. We wanted a chilled wedding photographer that knew what she was doing and captured natural moments. Josie didn’t disappoint. We hardly knew she was there, which is clear from some of the amazing shots she snapped! Thank you so so much, Josie. You’ve reminded us of how special our day was and we are so happy with everything you have provided us with your service. Mr and Mrs Twigg xxx

Jame and Amena's Five Star Reveiw
We are so pleased that we chose Josie to be our wedding photographer. We are absolutely thrilled with the photos we received, both in terms of image quality and of the many moments she captured. We could see that Josie had spent quite some time afterwards tweaking the images to look their best. On the day, Josie arrived promptly and got straight to work, and we hardly even noticed she was there. When it came to the group photos, she proved to be a natural at crowd-control and did an excellent job rounding up the various groups, which was hugely appreciated. We would highly recommend Josie to anyone looking for a friendly, reliable and talented photographer. Many thanks, James and Amena

Jyo and Iker Five Star Review
We absolutely love, love, LOVE our wedding photos! They are a perfect reflection of the amazing fun day we had and we cannot thank her enough! ^_^ Josie did such a fantastic job on the day.. we are both not very camera friendly people and we were a bit apprehensive about being photographed but we felt totally at ease with Josie. She was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable and eventually everything just felt very natural and this is clearly reflected in the photographs! In fact, our friends and family also commented on how great Josie was on the day especially in terms of organizing all the group photos! We are so glad we picked Josie to photograph our wedding and we would definitely recommend her. I checked a lot of photographers' websites while we were still deciding on a photographer but I really loved Josie's photography style and her editing and just how vibrant and fun all the photographs looked! :) If you haven't checked her blog out I would suggest that you go do it now and I am sure you wouldn't hesitate to book her :) Thank you so much once again Josie! - Jyo & Iker

Josie you were absolutely perfect at our wedding, you put everyone at ease and made the whole thing - from arranging dates initially, to getting everyone involved in the group shots on the day - completely painless and simple. Our wedding photos are so beautiful and thoughtful, and they really capture the day; we really appreciated your warmth and your attention to all the details! Cannot recommend you enough - Thank you.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

There have been so many amazing weddings.. that is a really difficult question! One of my favorites has to be Chloe and Haydn's wedding in 2015, as I knew both of these lovely people as a teenager. They had been together since the age of 16, so it was really special to see them tie the knot and also to see many old friends I hadn't seen in years! Their wedding had a punk-rock edge to it, which was fun to work and play with.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, stylish, candid, fun, colourful.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Sticking to my own style and working with lovely clients who 'click' with it!

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

Relax and enjoy it! Take your time, and don't worry about things going wrong. Nothing ever runs perfectly in life so their is no point ruining your enjoyment of the day over anything that doesn't go as exactly as you expected it would, much better to go with the flow, laugh and feel the love - that's what it is really all about.

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

Photos of the couple having a 10/15 minute walk around the grounds of their wedding venue. Not only do these photographs often turn out to be the most creative, romantic and memorable, but often the couple need a bit of a break from talking to lots of guests just to be alone with each other for a while. It is supposed to be a romantic day, after all! I shoot with a long lens at this point to ensure the couple have plenty of space to feel more relaxed.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas can look great in your photographs, and if you're brave, wellies too! Have a look through my portfolio to see some examples of how to make the rain work for you not against you :)

Describe how you got into photography.

I had a love of photography in my early teens. When I left school I studied photography for 2 years at college and whilst there I also landed a job in a portrait studio. During this time I learnt an enormous amount about photography and honed my assisting, editing and shooting skills. After relocating I started shooting 'solo' part time, and since then things have just grown and grown!
