\"I cannot recommend Joanna enough- she’s is amazing at what she does!
From the moment we met, Joanna was knowledgable, professional and so approachable. Then with a pandemic thrown in the mix with so much uncertainty and wedding postponements, she remained understanding and accommodating with new dates and knew exactly what we wanted for our big day.
When our day arrived, Joanna got involved with the preparations and even helped me with my dress in the evening! The photos are fantastic and have captured our day perfectly. We are so happy to have chosen Joanna as our wedding photographer, one of the best decisions we made! 🥰\"

\"Joanna was a pleasure to work with, her approach to our wedding was so relaxed and calming from initial conversations to the wedding day itself, at times we hardly knew she were there at all. The pictures that have been produced are second to none. We truly recommend any couple looking for a phototgrapher to capture their special day to look no further. Thank you Joanna for everything and capturing our day so brilliantly 🥰.\"

\"Delighted with the service and products we received from Joanna! After attending many of the weddings Joanna has shot as a guest, I was so pleased to have Joanna shoot my and Stuart’s special day
Joanna was flexible and professional throughout our covid wedding journey and gave us photos that we will treasure for a lifetime!\"
Alana & Stuart
\"Joanna Was absolutely amazing on our big day And we couldn’t have imagined it to have gone any better. She managed to catch some amazing Photos and special moments without us knowing she was there, Her direction when we was taking group and single photos really helped to get some incredible memories. She was kind polite and professional throughout our whole day and we can’t thank her enough for how well she captured our day.\"
Emma & Martin
“I am beyond happy that joanna was able to capture our special day! Planning a wedding through covid and lockdowns was quite stressful but joanna made booking photography really smooth sailing. She kept in touch via phone conversations and email to get a good idea of how we wanted our photos and we asked for a few group shots and everything else just natural and we were not disappointed. The photos taken of just me and my husband were perfect. I was blown away by the beautiful presentation box that was sent to us after definitely something to be cherished.
Thank you joanna ☺️ “
Kerry & Jamie
“ Joanna captured such lovely moments of our wedding leaving us with wonderful memories. She has given photographs that are creative, fun and natural. I had seen some of Joanna’s night photography on her website which was the reason for choosing Joanna- she didn’t disappoint, we have amazing photos. Thank you Joanna.“

\"Joanna was our wedding photographer back in July 2019 and what an incredible job she did! Having met Joanna at a wedding fayre I knew she was the one to photograph our wedding. We looked through her albums of photographs previously taken and were amazed at how talented she was. From start to finish Joanna was only a message away, she kept us fully updated throughout and was always there to reassure us. Even when my husband broke his ankle a month before the wedding she wasn't phased and completely put our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding she was in complete control and nothing was too much trouble. She worked continuously throughout the day and captured the most perfect photos.
We cannot thank Joanna enough for the beautiful photographs she has taken for us, they will be cherished for a lifetime! If we could do it all again we would choose Joanna each and everytime, she is amazing and I would recommend her to everyone and ANYONE! Thank you, thank you thank you Joanna! We cannot wait to have you photograph us again in the future! ❤ Paige & Dan, 6th July 2019 ❤\"

\"Joanna was amazing throughout our wedding planning, we had to change our wedding due to covid from August 2020 to August 2021 , she was so considerate about the whole situation and was happy to still photograph our wedding ❤
The day obviously can be so so stressful, but Joanne made us feel very relaxed about it all , all the photos we want to have with family members she took 🥰.
We can not thank you enough our photos are so amazing, we are finding it hard still to pick which ones to go into our memory book ❤
we highly recommend Joanne she is so professional and the photos she takes are stunning ❤
Thank you so much again
All the best Jennifer and Richard Weller ❤

The photos captured on our wedding day are absolutely stunning and when we look at them it’s so easy for us to re live the day which went by so fast.
Joanna was so friendly, yet hands on and organised.
I Will recommend her to all my future bridal friends who get married. thank you again Joanna for capturing our special day so perfectly.
All the best. Hannah and Lee. X\"

“ We originally had our wedding planned for May 2020 and had it postponed twice more, eventually married in September 2021. Every time Joanna was understanding and moved our booking with her, no fuss. Having to schedule an entire wedding three times over was stressful but having a supplier like Joanna made it so much easier and one less thing to worry about.
On the day, Joanna was brilliant and took so many wonderful photos. She bought her second photographer who was also amazing and together we had such magical pictures. Joanna even pre-planned when the sun would set, when it was nightfall and even particular weather/clouds that would make for brilliant photos. She organised our guests and made sure to get all the photos we wanted. Friendly, great communication and overall fantastic service. We loved every single one of our photos, to the point we simply have too many to choose from!
- Sophie & Lewis - Tournerbury Woods
“ I am so glad we chose Joanna to photograph our big day. She was fantastic right from the start, always happy to answer my questions and really listened to what we wanted. We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding twice but she couldn’t have been more accommodating and kind! Joanna was so friendly and polite on the day, it really put us at ease (and she kept us laughing!). Her and her lovely assistant took so many amazing photos, I feel like I’m reliving the day each time I look at them. Thank you Joanna ❤️“
- Isobel & Darryl
“ “ Joanna was very professional and so personable during the day of our wedding. We met Joanna at the open day of our venue at Southdowns Manor and she was so easygoing and great to talk to. Her work stood out for capturing the natural essence of everything a wedding entails. Because we booked before covid and then the sudden lockdown, She was very understanding and agreed to move the date for the following year in the summer. Luckily that day wasn’t booked. She checked in every now and then which helped us a lot with keeping track of what’s going on. The actual day she was amazing. The photos she took were all so natural. She captured everything from the loveliest moments to the funniest. She was very professional throughout. She had asked us to do a couple posed ones but 80% of the shots were natural and it was lovely to see everyone just be themselves during our big day. Thank you Joanna you were amazing and I couldn’t recommend you more. Anyone in the Hampshire area looking for an amazing photographer. Look for Joanna Cleeve. She is amazing “
- Elli & Max - Southdowns Manor
"I used Joanna for my wedding in April 2019. I cant Express enough how wonderful my photos are. I did a lot of research into photographers and when we met her at a wedding fair we booked her that day. Don't hesitate booking her if she is available for your day. You will not be disappointed. On my wedding day the team of 3 were more than I could have wished for in personality and organisation. Services I had - engagement shoot - highly recommend. Wedding day - unbelievable photos. Wedding album - spent a lot of time helping me with all the choices. Couldn't of asked for more from her. Thank you Joanna"
Roxanne & Matthew
"Joanna was our photographer at our wedding on 29th February 2020. She really put us at ease throughout the day. My 10 month year daughter had never met Joanna before and as soon as my daughter saw her she basically jumped out of my arms into Joanna's. Joanna and her mum were so friendly and did everything they could do made sure we had a lovely day, they went above and beyond. We received our pictures back yesterday and it was lovely to see our day again. Cant wait to receive them all and show all our friends and family! Thank you so much xx"

"We booked Joanna to photograph our wedding at Southdowns Manor. Joanna's communication in the build up to the wedding was brilliant and knew exactly what we wanted on the day. On the day Joanna and her mum were fantastic and really made us both feel at ease.
We received our photographs very quickly after the wedding and we are so happy with all of them. it was so hard to pick the prints we wanted.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Thank you Joanna

"We booked Joanna as our wedding photographer in November 2019.
She was so friendly from the outset and made the whole thing so easy! Her and her mum were a pleasure to have at the wedding.
As people who don’t like their pictures being taken, it was nice to have a friendly face behind the camera. And a second friendly face telling us where to stand!
The photos we have received have far surpassed what we were expecting. And we would recommend her to any couple looking for their wedding photographer."
Mel & Jon
"Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Joanna for taking such lovely photos of our wedding day.
Joanna was brilliant. She was so organised before the Big Day that we really felt at ease, and she took the time to understand what sort of photos we wanted and what sort of wedding we were planning.
What I really appreciated was that Joanna was brilliant at letting the day flow. We were due to have ‘couples’ photos after the group photos, but she spotted that we were really keen to spend some time saying hello to our friends and family (and just enjoy the day!) that she suggested taking the ‘couples’ photos after dinner. I loved that Joanna was flexible to how the day was going.
If you’re looking for someone who can adapt to how the day is going, welcomes examples of photos that you would like to have, will capture moments in a natural and relaxed way, and is really really organised, then I recommend Joanna!
PS. She also goes the extra mile – lying down in a big puddle in order to get the right angle for a photo!!
Thank you for providing us with such lovely memories of our wedding day!"
"Could not recommend Joanna and the second photographer provided as part of our package, Jenny, any more highly. The photos from our wedding day are exceptional.
Her great communication and organisation really helped the day run smoothly while capturing some fantastic, natural photos.
A really swift turnaround on the photos after the big day, capturing many more than we initially anticipated.
Thanks so much!"

"Joanna photographed our wedding in September. Both Joanna and her assistants captured our perfect day so beautifully, with many natural, creative shots taken without us even being aware, which was perfect for us and meant we maintained the relaxed feel we had planned for. We also had some formal shots with family, but without having to pose for ages as Joanna was so organised, and we were able to make the most of precious time with our family and friends. Thank you to Joanna and her assistants, for your talent, patience and sensitive natures xx"

"We booked Joanna to photograph our wedding in May 2019. She actually photographed both my brother/sister in laws weddings and after seeing her work, i was sure i wanted her to capture our big day!
Not only was she extremely professional, she was also there to help with the little things to make sure the day run smoothly for us.
So happy with all the photo's we received, she certainly captured every special moment.

"Being an ‘older’, couple getting married we didn’t think we’d need a photographer, but I was so glad I l took my dear friend’s advice and booked Joanna! Everything was so easy. Joanna was so lovely to work with and her photos were beautiful - we now have some truly special photographic memories of our wedding day at Southdowns Manor - thank you x"
- Janet & Andy - Southdowns Manor
"Joanna photographed our wedding last September. From start to finish Joanna and her lovely assistant were amazing, from helping my dad with his tie to tidying my dress train throughout the day! The two of them just felt like part of the wedding party and I didn’t want them to go as they had been with us all day, it felt odd them leaving! We absolutely love our photographs, they are just what we we expected and I still now often spend time just looking at them.
Thank you for being such a fantastic photographer on our special day ? x"
Beth & Mitch
"Joanna photographed our wedding on the 7th June, she is really enthusiastic and friendly and we are really pleased with our photos. There are lots of natural ones which is what we hoped for, and she was very good at finding small windows of opportunities for photos with the main bridal party as I had stated that we didn’t want to be away from our guests for long periods of time. We were also so grateful that she stayed over her time slightly so that we were able to have photos with two important family members that hadn’t been able to arrive until later, so thank you for that we really appreciated it!"
Karris & Gary
"Joanna was amazing from the moment I booked her right through to the day of my wedding. Her and her mum were just lovely! They even helped me with my dress, putting it on and making it look just perfect. My photos arrived in a stunning hamper with those added touches to just add to how amazing it was. On the day, Joanna and her mum were so laid back and made everything feel natural (I had some very cheeky groomsman who they dealt with perfectly!) My photos are stunning, all so natural and captured my day perfectly so I feel I can relive it every time I look at the pictures. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend ❤️"
Rebecca & William
“Joanna was a brilliant photographer, she captured emotional, happy and beautiful images of our day as well as all the details or the decorating. She is so kind, friendly and we absolutely adore our pictures and are over the moon we have them to keep our memory of our special day forever xx”

"We were so lucky to book Joanna for a wedding photographer I've 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!"
Hannah & Matthew - De Vere Latimer Estate
"Joanna was our wedding photographer and we are in love with our photos, which came in a beautiful package. Not only did she excel as our photographer, her and her mother Audrey went above and beyond to make our day perfect and lent a hand whenever it was needed. We will be booking Joanna as our photographer for a newborn shoot if we are fortunate enough to have a baby together. Highly recommended by us for anyone who is looking for a talented and caring photographer."
Rob & Lucy
"We booked Joanna for our wedding and she was absolutely brilliant. We didn't have the best idea of exactly what type of shots we wanted but Joanna was really helpful in suggesting what could be done and what looks good.
On the day she and her assistants were great, and we're thrilled with how the photos turned out. We'd definitely recommend for weddings, as we already have done to some of our engaged friends!"
“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 suggestions and 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!"

"We have recently had our wedding photos back and we are completely blown away by the quality of everything Joanna has delivered. Photography for us was by far one of the most important aspects of our wedding as we wanted plenty of memories to look back on, knowing that everyone says the day goes by in a flash. Joanna hasn’t disappointed at all and looking through the photos is like reliving the entire day again each time. She perfectly captures the candid moments, the looks here and there, the laughter - everything. Nothing was too posed or felt forced and we were very relaxed in her presence. We had a second shooter and Joanna’s assistant also came along and again they were fantastic from start to finish. Her assistant even helped my mum practice her reading in the morning! Thank you for everything, we won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer!"
- Christie & Stephen - Wotton House
"I honestly don’t even know the right words to describe everything We feel after receiving the link to view our photographs. You have captured every emotion, every tiny bit of detail which I didn’t think where important at the time but mean a huge amount to me now, you’ve put together a complete story of our day and focused on so many precious memories for us.
We now have the most toughest choices to make whilst we go through them so many times to choose our favourites for our album and prints.
Having a second shooter with you as well has created so many choices of angles and managed to get some amazing group and action shots whilst we where with yourselves having couple shots..... everything is perfect, beautiful, stunning and unbelievably precious to us. We now have the most memorable story pictured forever.
I’m so pleased you where able to look after us. We can’t Thankyou and your lovely Mum and Sarah, your second shooter enough, you’re all so amazing ❤️❤️
P.s- FEE, FI, FO, FUM...... Joanna, you even ran up and down the green, playing around with the kids and blowing loads of bubbles to get the perfect photos of my little ones... there was even a bit of flossing! Haha!! It was great fun and my kids hate their photo taken and I now have some beautiful pictures of them.... Thankyou xxxxxx"

"From start to finish Joanna was friendly yet professional, she helped answer my many questions. On the day Joanna was on time and captured all the photos we wanted and even had a last minute change due to guests not turning up. Joanna was been very efficient after our wedding day ensuring we got to see our sneak peaks and our album to view within weeks, we've been impressed to receive today our prints and USB only a few days after telling Joanna which ones we would like. we would defiantly recommend Joanna and will hopefully work with her again once we can afford to do some family photos. Thank You"

"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"

"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"

"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"
Susannah & Marc - Southdowns Manor
"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!!!"
Danny & Abi
"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!!

"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"
- Katie & Matthew
"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!"
- Emma & Phil
"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!"
- Laura & James - Farbridge
"Having Joanna capture our special day was just amazing!
She is such a professional, lovely and reassuring photographer!
We can't thank Joanna enough for all her effort before, after and on our wedding day, making us feel extremely relaxed, reassured and so accommodating throughout!

Thank you so much for capturing our day perfectly!!

"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"

Claire & Sean
"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."
Rachel & Nick
"- 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"

"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"

"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"

"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! "
Kayleigh & Scott
"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."
"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"

"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.

"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"
"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"

"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"

"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"
Carly & Paul
"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!"

"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"
Carly & Jordan
"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."
Leanne & Josh
"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"
"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."
- Jing & Geoff
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.
