Superb experience

We spent quite a while looking for a wedding photographer and when we found Jo we instantly knew we had to book her. We loved all of her work on her profile.
Her communication with us has been great and reassuring when you are already under so many pressures planning a wedding.
It was an absolute pleasure having Jo around me on our big day, she was so efficient and organised I didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing. Jo helped keep me calm with and we felt really comfortable with her taking our pictures. She was also brilliant with my daughter and the other children. Just after finishing our breakfast the next morning Jo sent us a sneak peek! They were the first pictures we saw from our wedding and we were thrilled with them. We then had our full gallery 13 days later and could not be happier with it! Jo has beautifully captured every element of our day and I am so glad we found her. We have had tons of compliments about our photos so if you are looking for a photographer you don鈥檛 need to look any further!
Thank you so much Jo for our stunning memories X

Jo went above and beyond to document our wedding day - her work is fabulous and we're so grateful!

Jo did a fabulous job of capturing our wedding day. She worked tirelessly and quickly to get the photos we wanted and really captured the essence of the day. It's 5.5 years later and thanks to her photos, I can relive the day and feel all the same emotions as if it were yesterday. Our guests commented how friendly she was when wanting the photos we had asked for and she remained calm and collected when having to direct so many people in such little time. Jo really took her time to get to know us, as well as the venue, ahead of time. We highly recommend her for any event!

absolutely delighted

Thank you so much Jo for being our wedding photographer! We are absolutely delighted with our photos and love that you sent them all for us decide on our favourites. The sneak peak shots came through so quickly, it was really lovely to have a first glance of the photos only a couple of days after the wedding. The full album didn鈥檛 keep us waiting too much longer either! We can鈥檛 thank you enough for staying to make sure you captured our first dance and sparkler shots even when our order of the day slightly ran over. We are truly grateful to you and would recommend you to anyone!

Best photographer ever!!

Jo was fantastic, not only on our wedding day but in the lead up with tips, fast responses and a trial shoot which put us at totally at ease. On the day Jo was not only a photographer but a coordinator and extra bridesmaid with her ability to herd everyone for group shots and make sure I had a lipstick top up before photos. She also captured some lovely dancefloor photos long after the first dance! We recieved over 100 first look photos a couple of days after the wedding with the full album shortly after. The photos were also handily organised into sections for each part of the day. We could not fault Jo so if you're looking for a wedding book her now!!

Fantastic wedding photographs

Jo went out of her way to come to our wedding on the other side of the country and we are so glad she did, the photos she took are superb. She was very patient and helpful on the day particularly with the group photos where it was like herding cats. All her experience with wedding photography means you are in safe hands and she knows when to grab you and when to leave you chatting with your guests. She also gave lots of helpful tips before the wedding day, giving us good guidance about how long our group photos would realistically take and some tips about our couple poses. Thank you Jo!

Book Jo first before you book anything else for your wedding day

Jo is honestly the best photographer there is, and that's only based on our wedding test photo shoot! I'm beyond excited for the big day thanks to Jo. She made me and more importantly my fiance who hates photos so comfortable while shooting giving us tips and tricks to do that it was definitely a highlight of the lead up to the wedding we will remember forever. The test shots are incredible, better than we could have imagined, we wanted natural, unposed, vintage type shots and they definitely are exactly that. Thank you Jo, see you soon for the big day. xxx

*Edit 17th August post wedding day: Brides, if you have already booked a photographer, cancel them and book Jo immediately! Not only was she the most professional photographer I've ever come across but she played a blinder in the lashing rain getting all the shots and improvising to get insanely good shots in doors. She kept me the bride sane on the day by being so organised and good at getting everyone rounded up in such a pleasant way. She was so good to have on the day as she is so experienced in weddings, again brides - book Jo, it'll be the best wedding decision you make! x

Joy to work with

Well what can I say!? Jo was a pro from the moment she arrived! She helped us with 'poses', timings, so nothing was missed, and adapted to the weather/light to get the best shots (our couple shots happened at sunset instead of 3/4pm). Jo is a joy to work with, punctual, hard working, creative, kind; a complete 10/10. My hubby and I would definitely recommend to all future Mr and Mrs thinking of booking a wedding photographer! And even better...Jo won Devon's Photographer of the year after our wedding day! Well deserved! Thanks again Jo for everything!!

Still in love with our photos 2 years on!

We couldn't be happier with the photos taken by Jo of our wedding day!
From the very beginning Jo made the process as easy as possible. Jo is so personable and professional and was able to tell us exactly what we needed to do to get certain shots.

Getting photos of friends and family which can sometimes be a stressful process was made really painless by Jo as she made sure everyone was where they needed to be and that we got the best photos! She also made sure that we got some Bride and Groom photos in the early evening when the lighting had changed which are some of our favourites!

We couldn't believe how quickly Jo had the photos ready for us through the website link. Being able to provide the link to guests afterwards was a great way to share the memories of the day.

We have had so many compliments about how beautiful the photos are and we couldn't agree more! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jo to anyone looking for a photographer. The photos are better than we could have imagined and it's so lovely having those memories saved forever in print!

Brilliant wedding photographer!

We hired Jo to capture our wedding at Hestercombe. From the start, her communication with us was excellent, and she got us comfortable in front of the camera with a practice shoot which actually produced some really nice photos!

On the day we had some last minute changes because it rained but Jo made it work. When she needed to get people into position for group shots, she did so, but most of the time I didn't really notice she was there which is exactly what you want on your wedding day.

Most importantly the photos are absolutely fantastic! From getting ready shots, to the ceremony, meal and party, she really captured the day well and we couldn't have been happier with them. We'd highly recommend Jo if you're looking for a friendly, professional photographer for your wedding.

Great experience

Jo was lovely, professional and best of all produced an amazing set of photos for our wedding day.
From the communications beforehand to the actual day, Jo was thorough and organised.
On the wedding day both my husband and I felt relaxed and at ease with her straight away.
Jo took both formal, planned photos and natural, relaxed pictures of us and our guests.
During the evening we didn鈥檛 even know Jo was still with us! She blended into the guests and made everyone relax.
The result are some truly beautiful photos which add to our memories of an amazing day.
Thank you Jo.
We wouldn鈥檛 hesitate to recommend you to anyone:

Stunning Photography

Jo, thank you for everything you did for us on our 'special day'. A small intimate gathering of just the four of us on a day which turned very wet and cold, thankfully, though it did not dampen any of our spirits! We are absolutely thrilled with the photos. All our family and friends just love them, especially the ones taken with the umbrellas and the black and white ones too! One friend quoted to me that she honestly feels she has never before seen such beautiful photos. You were well organised in your approach and soon made us all feel relaxed. Smoothly and calmly you set about getting us into the various poses. Perseverance paid off to get that all important confetti shot that we wanted. It is just wonderful, that photo will definitely be going into a frame! We would highly recommend Jo. Thanks once again, Karen and Chris xx

Magical photos and wonderful photographer.

Jo is the best photographer we could have asked for for our wedding day. It takes a special photographer to listen to my muddled ideas about woodland photos with a feeling of freedom and create the pictures from my dreams. Everything from the pre wedding shoot to get us comfortable in front of the camera, to the big day, and the photos afterwards, was perfect. We cannot thank Jo enough for capturing our day so beautifully.

Simply Perfect!

Jo photographed our wedding and did an absolutely incredible job. She was so easy to talk to and made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole day. We are really thrilled with our photos. Jo was non-invasive and managed to get the shots we wanted in a natural way. I can't recommend her highly enough!
