Would highly recommend Joanna, she did Our wedding photos in May and we couldn’t be happier with them! She is very professional and our photos are amazing.

Rozina Hyde

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

Inger Tween

Joanna is a very lovely lady who has done excellent work at my wedding. We received over 1400 photo’s. Very adaptable, thinks with the couple and you hardly notice that she is there!! The photos are very natural and don’t look posed. ( something that caught my eye during looking at her portfolio and the reason why we chose her) 
Thank you very much for your excellent service Joanna!!! Very well done

LOVE TO THE MOON AND

BACK

YOU MUST BOOK JOANNA!!! We booked Joanna for our wedding on the 14th July and all I can say is WOW!!! She did an outstanding job with our photos, she has literally told our story with her amazing photography. She listened to exactly what we wanted whilst giving us her extra bit of wow factor. We were so nervous on the day but she really did take that out of us and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed! This girl will jump bridges for that one amazing shot, you have to book her! Joanna and her mum are just such lovely people too which makes working with them easy. Please don’t book anyone else until you check out this young lady’s talent!!
Joanna you made our day just that extra bit special and we cannot thank you enough xx

Danny Craft

From the very first conversation with Joanna we knew she was the photographer for us. She was so enthusiastic and keen to hear our plans that we knew she was going to be considerate to our wishes and requirements.

Joanna on the day was amazing! She captured some amazing pictures without us even being aware she was there!! This is great as both me and my wife do not like having our pictures taken!!

Joanna and her assistant ensured all the photos we wanted were captured with nofuss or hassle ensuring everyone could concentrate on having a good time!!

When our pictures arrived, the hamper and quality of goods were excellent! A very good keepsake for a day we will never forget!!

We would highly recommend Joanna to anybody!!

Thank you!

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!!!

Kayleigh Illidge

Joanna photographed our wedding on 11/11/17 and we chose her because her images speak for themselves - effortlessly beautiful. Joanna also chose a very talented second shooter (would recommend that package as it’s really worth it!) We also loved her low light work and given that we had a winter wedding we were definitely not disappointed having just had access to our gallery images online. We are very excited to now be choosing our prints and framed images to go in our hamper package with the USB and we’ll be sure to pop up a selection of our favourites! Thanks again for capturing our day so well - it really is something we’ll treasure forever. X

Laura Lintott

We chose Joanna to photograph our wedding on 06/10/17. Joanna and her mum Audrey went above and beyond to ensure the day ran smoothly. Audrey even helped the groomsmen with their button holes! They both made us feel relaxed in front of the camera which definitely does not come naturally. We were over the moon with our photos � She provided a very efficient service and our photos were ready even before the specified time frame we agreed which was a lovely surprise. She captured our day perfectly from start to finish and we had so much fun looking through them. We decided to pay the extra and keep all the photos in the end as there were just too many brilliant ones to choose from!


Claire True

We picked Joanna as we liked the style of the photos on her website, and when we met her in person we felt she had the same idea as we wanted for the day - plenty of casual, relaxed photos but also the necessary group shots. For both our engagement session and wedding Joanna made us feel at ease in front of the camera (not something we are good at!) and the pictures are absolutely lovely. We have a fantastic representation of our wedding day and will definitely be arranging an album or photobook shortly to showcase all the details Joanna & her assistant caught on camera on the day.

LOVE TO THE MOON AND

BACK

Toni Brown

Amazing thank you. We are still on our honeymoon so will look properly when we are back but the ones I've seen look great.

Katie Slocombe

Very pleased with our wedding pictures. Joanna was a lovely professional photographer who provided us with the perfect pictures from our day. We wanted a very candid look from our photos with less posed for pictures and Joanna and her second shooter really understood this. Out hamper arrived with some lovely touches included, especially the USB stick and box, which is perfect for storing our precious pictures in. Our framed pictures are brilliant and look lovely hanging in our hallway. Thank you to Joanna, her assistant and second shooter. xx

Emma Bowden

We found it quite hard choosing a wedding photographer but we are so glad we decided to go with Joanna. She photographed our wedding on the 1/07/2017 and captured our summer wedding perfectly. We have so many lovely pictures of the day to look back on. We weren't really sure what kind of photos we wanted but Joanna was able to give us lots of ideas which was a great help. She is very relaxed and easy going which suited us perfectly. Thank you very much!

IN YOUR OWN WORDS

Mrs Rachel Martin

- value for money - very prompt on arrival - creative with different shots and lighting - great attention to detail (my dress, bouquet position etc.) - happy to take the lead in large groups - confident in doing so - flexible throughout the day in terms of timings and to suit the weather conditions with the running of the day - confident at a venue Joanna has not photographed previously - Joanna easily and seamlessly worked with the videographer that she had not met before

Thomas Jones

Joanna was very easy to contact and always responded quickly and with all questions/queries answered. On the day she was very professional and helped us get everything in to place for the photographs. Had some great ideas for shots. Was happy to provide advice on the day and was non-intrusive when taking photos. 

Charlotte Mason

Joanna has been fantastic. She understood our needs and captured our big day excellently. She has an eye for detail, and I was really thrilled with the photo's from our big day. She listened to what we wanted, and was great at putting everyone at ease in front of the camera. She had some great suggestions for poses, and captured some wonderful moments, I know we will cherish these for ever. We can't wait to receive our prints! 

Mrs Kayleigh Pratt

Joanna is personable, friendly and has a very good eye for lighting for unusual shots. Her ideas are original and she has a very warm and polite manner yet managed to round up my rowdy family! Loving the shots we've had from her. 

ALL YOU NEED IS

LOVE

Sian Hallam

Choosing a photographer was one of the headrest decisions to make when planning our big day as you want someone who will capture your whole day and you as a couple just perfectly. When I came across Joanna and her work I knew instantly she was the lady for the job and Joanna did not disappoint! Our pictures are amazing and capture our day just perfectly. Joanna was so helpful on the day, we were very unfortunate with the weather and it rained all day but Joanna went above and beyond and didn’t let the weather phase her! Even getting down on the ground at one point just to capture the perfect shot. Joanna is very professional and you can tell is so passionate about capturing your day just right. We now have some beautiful photographs to look back on and each one brings back wonderful memories! Thank you Joanna Cleeve x

Soizic Hare

Where to start...Joanna is just an all round fantastic photographer! We were lucky enough to have her photograph our special day and nothing was too much to ask. Joanna and her lovely mum Audrey made us feel so relaxed when having our photos taken and between them they chose such lovely areas in the venue and had some brilliant creative ideas. Not only did they photograph our day beautifully, they helped with so much more during the day and helped make it run so smoothly. Audrey even popped home to get me some flat shoes when my little feet had had enough of heels and I really can't see anyone else doing all that! Highly recommend them for photographing any special events that you may have coming up! Thank you so so much, you've been absolutely fantastic xx

Emily Cook

SO incredibly happy to have booked Joanna for our wedding day. We spent months looking for a photographer who's style suited what we wanted. When someone tagged her page o a wedding group and I looked through her photos we just knew that's what we wanted.

The whole process she was helpful and informative despite me being a VERY stressed bride (and indecisive to the last minute!)
On the day, Joanna and her mum when above and beyond to make everything perfect. Not just taking beautiful photographs (which came back incredible quickly), but helping me carry things, helping with my pants and shoes and even toilet trips! A couple of absolute diamonds!
They also helped me and my husband feel very at easy in front of the camera (something we normally find really difficult)

I couldn't recommend Joanna enough if you're looking for someone to capture your special day! You absolutely won't be disappointed

Bethany Howard

This photo was a real surprise from our incredible photographer Joanna Cleeve! ❤️ xxx

Joanna I’m completely blown away! You made us a real life fairytale with a single photo! My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw this and mike was equally stunned! Can hardly wait to see the rest! ❤️thank you xxxx

Kaylee Gammon

I couldn't off picked someone better to photograph our special day... Joanna is great at what she does making you feel relaxed and comfortable while staying professional. As well as the usual wedding shots I loved the natural ones she caught of us and our guests just as much ... nothing was to much bother for her and her team!!! Would highly recommend her . Thankyou again Joanna x


Katie Langridge

Joanna photographed our wedding on 22 December at Buxted Park. From the first moment I knew she was perfect. She made us feel relaxed and at ease. My photos were ready to view within days of the wedding and she had managed to capture so many special moments of us and our guests. I cannot recommend her enough, so if you haven't booked your photographer already then don't look any further!

Melissa Rathbone

Just wow mind blowing work from Joanna very friendly hard working and creative!

I can't wait to see the rest of pictures :)

Also a big well done to your mum! She so lovley! Xxx

HOLD

Alexis Freeman


Joanna photographed our wedding and the photos are brilliant, the whole day went smoothly thanks to Joanna and her mum. Thanks so much! I would recommend Joanna to anyone

Amy McAllister


Joanna really helped make our wedding the best day of our lives, she is a very professional, kind and friendly photographer, she listened to what we wanted and really captured that in our photos. We are so happy so happy that we chose Joanna and we are over the moon with all of our photos, we will definitely be using her again

Hannah Milner



Not sure where to start as thank you seems so little but a MASSIVE thank you for all your hard work on Thursday! You made everything so stress free and the sneaky shot we've seen has left me so excited for the rest! Thank you for all your attempts at getting our 'spirited' 3year old to join us xXx

IN YOUR OWN WORDS

Lisa Butters

Joanna is quite simply an absolute gem. We came across her through a friend who was also getting married just before us, and instantly fell in love with the pics she had on her website. The absolute deciding factor for us was the attention to detail in the lovely package you receive in the form of a vintage hamper. Anyone who takes such pride in their business and identity was defintely someone we wanted with us for our big day! We met with Joanna and were astounded by the amount of her work we were presented with to discuss and the looks and nods across the table between me and my now husband confirmed that we had defintely found our wedding photographer - and we weren't willing to settle for anyone less than perfect. 
On the day, Joanna didn't disappoint - in fact we are eternally grateful for her exceptional eye for what makes a great photograph. The results are natural, slightly vintage and capture the day in a way we could only have dreamed of. 
It was a genuine pleasure to have Joanna and Audrey with us on our wedding day. Seen through Joanna's lens I look every bit as beautiful and special as I felt on the day and if that's not the absolute essence of what I dreamed of, I don't know what is.
 Thoroughly recommend, without hesitation. Book Joanna and you'll be glad of it forever! 
Thank you Joanna and Audrey so much for everything. xx

Rianne Adams

My husband and I, we hired Joanna and we would definitely again. She is very creative and comes up with so many dynamic shots which really brought out the feel of our wedding day! Which was so special. I highly recommend you hiring her, she is fun, engaging photographer who worked with speed and efficiency. You will never regret hiring her, i can promise you that! 100/10!!!!! Many thanks Joanna!
Callum & Rianne.

THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER

Hayley Carter-Pickering


We were lucky enough to have Joanna as our photographer at the end of October this year. She was professional, attentive, efficient and friendly- always answering my questions leading up to the big day within hours. The photos are amazing, looking through them was like re-living the day! Highly recommended.xx

Gemma Turner



I'm so glad we picked Joanna to photograph our wedding, she's a very talented person and we love all of our photos. Would highly recommend her to any one who is getting married. 
Thank you Joanna for making our day special.

Lauren Faulkner



Joanna is an amazing photographer, and I'm so glad I found her. The photos she took for our wedding day and engagement shoot were absolutely beautiful! She is very professional and goes the extra mile to get the perfect shot. I would definitely recommend her.

IN YOUR OWN WORDS

Charlotte Dunsdon

Wow - what a beautiful, kind girl who took such amazing photos of our crazy and very different wedding day (we got married on dont tell the bride! ). Joanna's photos are a perfect memory of the wedding, capturing every moment, emotion and smile of not only us as a couple and family but of every guest. Now to try and pick our favourites from so many ready to get printed. Would highly recommend to everyone. 5***

Charlotte Kalinski

We had the pleasure of Joanna shooting our wedding day and can honestly say she was absolutely amazing. From start to finish Joanna was not only professional but made us feel so at ease through the whole day. The quality of the pictures was stunning and love the hamper and wooden USBs to treasure the day forever.

Sarah Smith

From start had brilliant communication she gave me my own personal package. And when I met her made me feel at ease and made me feel comfortable on the day, thanks Jo. Xxx

Hannah Bracher

Joanna took great pictures of our wedding day and made us feel comfortable as we are not really picture people. Her and her mum were very helpful and organised, would definitely use her again and recommend 100%

LOVE IS LIKE A

Carly Crocker


Joanna was our photographer for our wedding at Rivervale Barn, Yateley, Hampshire on 25/10/2016.
I cannot recommend her enough. She is incredibly friendly and worked well with everyone. From our first meeting through to the day, she was absolutely lovely. She made us feel incredibly calm and relaxed. Having such a huge family + guest list I knew I needed someone who wouldn't be afraid of this and she took it all in her stride. She was also very creative using the natural grounds of the venue to have photos poking out from behind the trees etc. These were some of our favourites and ones we wouldn't have thought of on our own.

Being the eldest of many many cousins and many of my friends having children, I knew I wanted someone who'd be able to grab snaps of them and know how to work with children photography wise and she got so many lovely ones that we'll cherish for years.

I cannot thank Joanna with her helpers (Mum and Friend) enough for their support on the day and for all the photos. We will always cherish them.
So if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, I recommend Joanna whole heartedly.

Chloe Paige Forster


I was lucky enough to come across Joanna on a wedding Facebook page and I was very nervous about choosing a photographer that would give me what I wanted a quality for my money. Right from the start Joanna is the loveliest lady to speak to and makes you feel at ease. She has gone above and beyond to find the style and moments I wanted captured by looking at my pinterest and asking me for examples. On the day I quickly realised my family weren't the best at posing especially me and my husband!! However Joanna and her mum helped us get into relaxed natural but beautiful poses that gave us amazing photos. I received my online collection last night at about 8 o clock which isn't even 2 weeks since the wedding and it holds nearly 2000 photos! They were all so beautiful I spent hours looking through and choosing my favourites for our usb and have already given them to Joanna so we can get them back as I absolutely can't wait! The poses and the natural captured images are all stunning I couldn't recommend Joanna more to anyone for her photography it was an absolute pleasure having her at our big day. Thanks Joanna for everything! X

Leanne Martin


Found Joanna through one of the groups she advertises in and really liked her style of work as i prefer the more natural photos with some poses to create the perfect variation. Well we were certainly not let down and i would have no problem recommending her to potential future clients! The whole day she made us feel at ease and if we was running out of time she would let us know so we were able to make sure we got all the shots we had wanted, she naturally fitted in with our wedding party and it was a pleasure having her with us on our special day! Cannot thank you enough Joanna, cant wait for the prints and to share with family and friends

IN YOUR OWN WORDS

Chloe Redford

My husband and I couldn't fault her! She has produced some amazing photos both formal and informal! 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!

Jessica Dyson

Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding photos you did for us, Joanna. You took some really stunning 'formal' shots, but have also given us some wonderful un-posed captured moments that we will treasure for a long time. We would certainly recommend you to other couples planning a wedding.

Malisa-Jo Haywood

We are very grateful to Joanna for our wedding photos. We normally hate being in front of the camera but she made us feel at ease and the photos are fantastic. Great service.

We received our hamper yesterday and absolutely love the photos. Joanna did an amazing job at capturing the whole day. 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

Thank you Joanna for making our wedding day special and memorable. The service provided by Joanna was professional, friendly, personal, timely and cost effective. Our special moments were framed in a way that kept us organised and relaxed. The quality of the photographs produced by Joanna are fantastic. We highly recommend the services provided by Joanna for anyone who needs a professional wedding photographer.

Thomas Harris


Such a wonderful, personal service. Joanna was so helpful and friendly and she replied so promptly to all and any queries. She was unobtrusive on the day, but organised enough to make sure we got all the photos we'd asked for. The finished photos are just perfect, really good quality and such a wide range, from posed to artistic to natural. We're so pleased we asked Joanna to take our wedding photos, we loved the finished product, the hamper was a really lovely touch and we would highly recommend her for any event.

Tracey-Jane Thompson


We are so delighted to have had Joanna to do our wedding pics, just perfect, professional, friendly and totally amazing.
