Hi my name is Jodi. I am a wedding photographer based in Edenbridge near Sevenoaks in Kent with an adventurous soul and itchy feet. I love capturing relaxed, fun filled weddings wherever they may be.
My style has a natural feel more in keeping with documentary photography which enables me to blend into the background as much as possible. This helps me to record the scene as it unfolds and to authentically tell the story of your day. So many couples I meet and talk to say they are awkward and camera shy. I promise you that most couples feel the same but I guarantee that you will find the experience easy and fun. Let's face it what is difficult about you having a walk and a chat with your best person beside you?
So what kind of couples book me? Well that it is pretty easy to answer. It tends to be couples that appreciate and value the photography, who want beautiful and natural images but they don't ultimately want it to overtake their day. They want the whole story captured, the little moments they will inevitably miss. My job is to see and record the laugh out loud moments, the tears, the hugs, and the tender moments throughout the day from getting ready to your first dance and sometimes beyond. Your photographs are the one tangible bit of your day, except maybe for your wedding rings and your dress, that will remain.
For this reason it is so important that the person you choose to capture and record your day has a style you love and is also someone you feel you can connect with. I will be a big part of your day and I genuinely feel that the connection I build with my clients helps me capture those more intimate moments.
For me experience is everything. It is definitely not enough just to take fabulous images, my role involves making sure that you both have a great day whatever that may entail. I am fully insured both with professional and public liability for your peace of mind and work with the best professional camera bodies and lenses.
I am based near Sevenoaks in Kent but more than happy to travel further afield in the UK as well as abroad. I love exploring new destinations and photographing at new venues so please do ask if you are planning a Destination Wedding or Elopement. I also do have a wedding venue "bucket list". I have been truly blessed already to have photographed some incredible weddings but I would also love to photograph a wedding with Alpaca's and llama's or that have Tipi's, any outdoor weddings with a wild and boho vibe, or a city wedding with an industrial chic look.
Now a little about me. Well I love to travel, the more random the better, and have recently returned from Tasmania, The Faroe Islands, India and Antarctica to name but a few places. There is still so much of the world I would love to see (and photograph of course). I love treats of any description particularly or the cake variety (I flipping love a slice of cake), and maybe the odd Aperol Spritz and Gin and Tonic on my day off, not both at the same time of course.
So if you like what you see and think I may be the photographer for you please do not heitste to get in touch xoxo

Jodi is incredible!
I really can't recommend Jodi enough! With us having a very small, Covid-compliant wedding, we were nervous about choosing a photographer that would perfectly be able to capture our day. As soon as we had our initial chat with Jodi, we knew that she would perfect for us! It honestly felt like having a close friend take our photos, and every single guest at the wedding commented on how comfortable she'd made them feel. And she made me feel like the most beautiful bride! Our photos are absolutely phenomenal, and she captured the emotion of the day so well. Thank you Jodi!Sent on 27/10/2020
Jodi Hanagan Photography's reply:Thanks so much Amy and Mark for your wonderful review. Your wedding was a true highlight of this somewhat challenging year and it will be a day I will never forget x

Excellent, professional and relaxed.
Jodi came to photograph our 'micro wedding' in December and did an excellent Job. We have beautiful group shots and photos of my wife and I in some surrounding urban areas too.
Jodi is a good communicator which was important as we had so many changes due to lock down and restrictions constantly changing. She is very professional, punctual and kind and helped the whole day feel relaxed and fun. Jodi did her job without distracting anyone or disturbing the ceremony.Sent on 21/02/2021
Jodi Hanagan Photography's reply:Thanks so much for taking the time to do this lovely review!! So enjoyed your special day and was honoured to be a part of it!

Talented Photographer, Excellent Person!
We cannot recommend Jodi enough, she was incredibly flexible and helpful during the planning of our very changeable lockdown wedding, which was so reassuring!
When researching photographers, and I came across her work I knew she had an expert creative eye, which was very important to us. Then when speaking on the phone, and meeting in person I knew she was friendly, warm and was really excited to be part of our wedding - I was delighted she was available!
On the day she helped us to get some lovely shots as a couple despite neither of us being particularly good in front of a camera - and capturing our family, she then spent the rest of her time working discreetly and very athletically by running all over the place to document the day - at times I thought there must be two of her!
Once the day was done I was amazed how quickly Jodi sent us our sneak peaks - and then the whole set of beautiful photos just a few days later. Anyone looking for a talented, friendly and insightful photographer would be so lucky to have Jodi, I'm thrilled she was there to be a part of our day, all of our guests loved her - and now having seen her work are even more impressed.
She is worth every penny!Sent on 13/08/2020
Jodi Hanagan Photography's reply:Thank you so much Emma and Joe I felt honoured to be part of your very unique day it was truly amazing working with you both!
