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.
I also understand about delivering great customer service. 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

We were delighted with the photos and service that Jodi provides, she is a true professional and truly talented. More importantly, she is so lovely and genuinely enhanced our day. Everyone loved her and she managed to get really natural, happy shots which was exactly what we wanted.Sent on 09/06/2019
Myself and my husband are a little camera shy but honestly felt so at ease with Jodi that we enjoyed that part of the day.
Her energy and eye for detail is amazing. I'd recommend Jodi 100% - we are so happy that we found her!

Autumn Castle Wedding
So happy to have had Jodi at our wedding in late October at Lympne Castle - she made everyone feel relaxed and captured moments that we will treasure forever. When we first saw Jodi's photography we knew she was the best for our wedding as she captures emotion so well (a gift for sure) - on top of this she is a lovely person and would totally recommend her.

The best photographer around!
5 stars! You must have jodi as your wedding photographer and if you have already booked her then you are in for one hell of a treat!Sent on 08/09/2018
Jodi is professional, punctual and had our photos to us within a week! Lots of other wedding photographers fit the bill above but what they can't have is jodi's calm charismatic manner.
My husband and i hate having our photo taken but jodi made us feel so comfortable that we had such a laugh and absolutely loved the experience. She has so much vivacious energy that she puts into capturing your wedding day that each photo is so alive; we will reminisce about our wedding day for years to come and that is all down to jodi. A million thank yous aren't enough!
Jodi, you are one wonderfully talented human being! ❤
Jodi Hanagan Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Laura. It was amazing to be part of yours and Mark's special day! Wishing you all the best in your future lives together.
