With a Whole Lotta Passion and Heart
To shoot a wedding is to be part of a meaningful celebration of love.
It’s an honour, it really is; what other occasion squeezes
all the brilliant things in life into one day?
Excitement and anticipation, love and joy, tears and laughter, crazy dance floor moves from uncle Jack and the touching
romance of a hand tying ceremony. These unique emotions and events translate into powerfully emotive images.
The Before Bit
Initially we exchange a few emails, you fill in a lovebirds form, I get to know you a little, we Skype and work out which package would suit your plans and then we are ready steady go! Following your initial booking we set a date to meet close to your wedding, even better if you have chosen a package that includes a pre- wedding couple shoot. This meeting helps to put to rest any concerns you may have, we hang out and chat, go for coffee and I give you as much info as I can on what to expect, you share with me all of your plans and vision for your day and most importantly we do the people connecting thing so that by the end of the meeting you feel fully confident that your new mate , Jo the photographer is going to put her heart and soul into documenting your wedding day in the most honest, fresh, creative way possible.
How it Flows
For lets say 70 per cent of the day, I work discretely capturing moments that unfold naturally. No two weddings are ever the same, so I try not to have any fixed idea about how its going to flow. I work intuitively, guided by what I feel as much as what I see. I love to capture emotion, (hilarity and tears) movement and mood so that your love is documented in a touching way. The remaining thirty per cent is a little more guided with a few bridal and groom portraits, a couple shoot (always a very special part of every wedding day but of course not obligatory) and the family and group shots which can be really good fun. They don’t have to take very long and these are the ones that grandma loves and that gather so much meaning to families over time. If you have me on a super duper documentary package I will be with you through the getting ready, ceremony, aperitif, dinner, cake cutting, the fun first dance and into your party.
The After Bit
Your Images go through an extensive editing process taking into consideration the unique mood of your day. Each picture is individually edited and your photos are presented to you as a visual story on your own personal online gallery the gallery is linked to a professional print service for yourselves and your family to order prints and your high res files are made easily downloadable just for you!
I live in Sitges Spain, which is a popular destination wedding location. I specialise in Sitges, Barcelona and Costa Brava weddings.
If you are getting married in the Uk I have bases in Brighton, London and my family home is in Shropshire, which makes Weddings in these areas big favourites for me.

The Short Story / Elopement Package
An all about the love and less about the stuff package. Ideal for very intimate weddings where coverage of the ceremony a little couple shoot and reception is required. With your five hours coverage you can choose what’s most important to you and that is what I cover! If you are eloping for a romantic urban ceremony or maybe an adventure elopement where its just you two and your celebrant, then this is the perfect package and I would love to capture it for you. The package includes location scouting for your dream couple shoot – secluded romantic beach or cool urban setting I got you! And yes I still cover it in very much a reportage style – documenting your love with as little posing as possible.

Couple / Engagement Package
I love these shoots and highly recommend them to all my wedding couples, especially camera shy folk many of whom are surprised to find it a fun, romantic and beautiful experience.
I am interested in what kind of people you are, your interests, your particular story together, how you met, what you love about each other and so on. This ensures the shoot will be meaningful to you and from that we come up with a combination of locations that provide the perfect environment for you to be together. You may choose to be in your home and then we move to your fave coffee bar or beach spot, each shoot is unique and we plot it out together, while at the same time leaving room for spontaneity, we often end up stopping off for lunch!
I do share tips on how to relax in front of the camera and give you a little guidance if needed (my years on the other side of the camera do help with that a lot) but really really! No posing skills are required, love does its thing and my job is to capture how that love looks and feels between you both. And, you don’t need to be engaged or getting wed in order to have a couple shoot! document your love anyway!
