Elizabeth and James Review 5* – “We were so lucky to book Joanna for a wedding photographer Ive known Joanna and her family for a long time and was really pleased that she was available for a our wedding. we talked through Facebook and I picked a perfect package for us I was able to pay off in installments which helped massively when weddings are so expensive! we had a casual face-to-face prior to the wedding to finalise all the little details are Incorporated all of the pictures that I wanted on the day including some amazing smoke shots! there were challenges as my husband doesn’t like being photographed!! He and I instantly felt comfortable with Joanna as I had a rapport with her but she got along with my family and friends so well even my children bonded with her immediately! it made the whole experience so comfortable and enjoyable for everybody. so excited to see the photos I would highly recommend Joanna! and a huge thank you to your mum for putting up with the boys!”

Nicola and Samuel Review 5* – “I have been meaning to post this review for a while! But words cannot describe how happy my wife and I are with our wedding photos. Joanna captured all the special moments of our day, even moments we didn’t see ourselves! From the initial conversations we had with Joanna, she was extremely helpful and understood how we wanted our day to be captured, the kind of shots we wanted to have taken. She is always prompt with her responses and goes that extra mile to make suggestionsand check in on things. Joanna’s work really does speak for itself.

We even booked an engagement shoot prior to our wedding, Joanna made us feel so relaxed and the end results were fantastic too! On the day of the wedding, Joanna and her amazing assistant (Mum) were brilliant. Adjusting us as needed, pulling out Nicola’s long trail and making it look perfect for the photos. We received all of our photos earlier than expected and they were delivered in a beautiful box for us to cherish along with some prints. The little details really made a difference. We highly recommend Joanna, and will definitely book her again for any future shoots!

Thanks again Joanna!”

Rozina and James Review 5* – “Been meaning to write this review for a while! I cannot stress enough how brilliant Joanna is! My husband and I are by no means relaxed in front of a camera but Joanna made us feel so comfortable and at ease that we forgot we were being photographed! Joanna knows exactly what to do to get great shots and I am blown away by the photos we received! Every single one is incredible and we’ve had so many people commenting on them! If you are even beginning thinking about a photographer don’t look any further than Joanna SHE IS THE BEST! Thank you so much! Mr and Mrs Hyde xxxxx”

Susannah and Marc Review 5* – “We booked Joanna for our wedding in May 2016 for her boundless enthusiasm and energy.
We were looking for a mix of formal and informal shots of our day at Southdowns Manor and weren’t disappointed. We have some lovely images that we will treasure forever.
Our final chosen prints and USB stick were received in a beautiful hamper basket which was a really lovely touch. We also purchased a beautiful leather-bound album from Joanna – the really hard bit was just which images to choose from out of the enormous selection that we had!
Two years on we still have a large amount of Joanna’s photos on an electric photo frame so there’s always a different photo on display to make us smile.
Our 3-year-old son just loves watching the frame and taking about the people in the pictures and keeps asking when we can all get married again!!!”

She had her work cut out with us as we are a family that hate posing for pictures but she carried on despite my moans and got so many gorgeous pictures of us and our guests. We had the most incredible day and couldn’t be happier that Joanna managed to capture the whole spirit of the day, so many memories in each picture. Highly recommend xx”

We didn’t know what to expect but couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She’s very fast at producing the pictures and at such an amazing price! We were a very last minute wedding and a bit rushed and she made it all so simple for us. Thank you so much Joanna!”
