Hello… I’m Jo, a Surrey photographer specialising in wedding photography and natural family photography and portraits.
“I believe photography is about much more than just documenting a moment; it is about telling a story and capturing who we are in that moment… what we wish to always remember.”
I am a professional wedding photographer based in Surrey, but I photograph weddings all across the UK. My wedding photography is a mix of photojournalism, which some call reportage, and creative portraiture. I combine the spontaneity of photojournalism with a small amount of direction to ensure the best light and flattering photos – nothing too staged & posed – my images have a contemporary, natural and fresh feel to them. I began my photographic career in the beauty of wedding photography and it is still my great passion today.
My family photography has a recognisable style, natural and fun, where light is paramount. Natural shots of children, being themselves, in beautiful natural backdrops – no cheese, no boring white background, and no awkward photo smiles – just beautiful relaxed images… My family shoots are shot in well-loved and often-frequented local parks and beauty spots, places your children love to be. The session becomes an extension of your time together as a family, I provide minimal direction but the results are a wonderful recollection of your family, and your children’s childhood.
My success as a professional photographer is as much about my passion to capture the spontaneous moments, as it is about my ability to create images. Children need subtle guidance to play in the right place and sit in the right way, as do wedding couples to be as relaxed and natural as possible.
The real beauty of a photograph is how it tells your story and capture the moments you want to remember for a lifetime. For me, photography is all about the best times in our lives – your engagement or wedding, a significant birthday family event, or your family’s childhood days. Take a look at my dedicated family photography website The Art of Childhood or my wedding photography website The Art of Weddings for more information.
