Hi I'm Jo
I love a good story and if I am blessed to be capturing a love story then I am delighted, as it is after all... ALL ABOUT THE LOVE!
I have photographed all kinds of weddings for all kinds of people. From 4 day wedding extravaganzas in Seville to teeny tiny intimate eco, humanist I do’s..
All I need to get to work on images that capture the very heartbeat of who you are is the essential magical ingredient Love! When the cake has been eaten, the flowers have cleared, and your beautiful dress hangs in your wardrobe, what remains (without getting too deep) is what’s beneath, the connection between your loved ones and your heart, soul, spirit,pulse whatever you want to call it and that stuff is my jam! Soulful, spirited, colorful, often hilarious, sometimes profound, often emotional moments are all what make me click. These are the moments that result in images that make you feel something, images that get better and better over time,make you belly laugh or maybe shed a tear. Images that when threaded together enable me to gift you with a narrative, a creative visual documentation as unique and original as is your loveI
It would be accurate to say I have lived an adventurous life!
First the fashion model bit , (so I do know how you feel over there on the other side of the camera! :) then two decades, as a creative nomad, designing brands, teaching a lot of yoga and meditation, living in India, running retreats and the odd yoga festival ( love festivals) and becoming a mum ( love kids!)
I guess you could say that everything I have lived has contributed to me feeling very at home with people and a camera in my hand.
I now live in the very beautiful town of Sitges, Barcelona and pop as often as I can to my two other fave places Brighton and Yorkshire.
I shot my first wedding as a favour for a friend,loved it, scoot on a bit, and I have shot almost 100 awesome weddings.
I want to be as excited about your wedding as you are! (Well almost) I stay fresh, seeing each wedding as unique and special by accepting only thirty wedding bookings a year.
I shoot fly on the wall candid family and kids photography too which I love love love! And have a bit of a thing for fashion brand, portrait and editorial work which you can see on my other website (www.jo-kemp.com)
I look forward to working with you!
Hasta Pronto, Abientot , Bye for now,
