Testimonials

Ben and I wanted to say a massive thank you for the amazing photographs you took of our wedding. You have captured the whole day and even parts that as the bride and groom you do not get to experience.

Somehow our photos really represent our personalities, with focus on our friends and family as well and some natural and beautiful pictures of us.

You were in all the right spots at all the right times, without being obtrusive. From the moment we met, you made us feel relaxed and we knew your focus was on us and for us to have an amazing day while you captured every moment of it.

You were a pleasure to have as company throughout the whole day and not at any point did you get in the way or become demanding, which is some of the preconceptions you have of wedding photographers.

Your informal, non-staged approach suited our wedding perfectly and the tone of our day really shines through in the pictures. Some of our friends who had sneak peak at the pictures, felt that you've taken the best photos of them they've ever seen.

Not many photographers also double up as emergency bridal party support with your emergency hair and sewing kits, tissues and more, but you quickly stepped in when help was needed.

The big challenge now is how to choose which photographs to put in our album, which is going to take a very long time.

Thank you for being a part of our special day and we look forward to seeing more of your work throughout your website and facebook page in the future.

Karen and Ben

 

A friend recommended Josie to us after using her for their wedding, I cannot thank her enough for doing so.

Josie contacted us to discuss what we were looking for and all arrangements were made so quickly without any fuss. We gave Josie our brief, she made detailed notes and also offered her own fantastic ideas.

On the day itself I arrived at the Wedding Venue and was thrilled to see Josie effortlessly capturing our guests and the scene before my arrival. This was her own personal touch, a moment I had not even thought to capture.

Once we were married and as per our brief Josie went to work capturing the moment, she manoeuvred the guests into position without them even realizing she had done so. Apart from a few key shots we left it mainly to Josie to decide as to whom and where we and the guests were photographed, on being presented with our album we were was so glad we had. On return from honeymoon we met with Josie to select the final pictures for our album, the choice was great and her photography skills amazed us.
Her creative flare for the unusual but breath-taking shot made our wedding album unforgettable and unique. We can truly say the spirit and atmosphere were captured to perfection and our memories were presented to us in a magnificent album hand decorated by Josie to coordinate with the colour theme we had picked for our special day.

To anyone thinking of booking Josie to capture their special day forever or for any other photographic requirements please do as you will not be disappointed, Josie thank you so very, very much.

Kirsty and Ian James

Thank you so much for being our photographer, you were absolutely amazing all the way through the day (even with me being Miss Bridezilla at times!!) from our planning stage and on the day. The photos are so much better than we could ever have imagined!!!

I have recommended you to everyone who may need a photographer.  We want people to no how nice and professional you are and what great quality photographs you do. We took our wedding book into my work today and they all said they were the best wedding photographs they have ever seen!.

Thanks so much again, and hope to use you again the future for baby photo shoots and also if we renew our vows in a few years time!!!!

Prior to the day Josie met us to discuss our plans for the day, the style of photographs we wanted and look we hoped to achieve. During this meeting she made note of our ideas, and if we asked for her input she was able offer some highly creative suggestions.

On the day she gave clear directions to the congregation, whilst making them feel completely at ease. I don't usually enjoy having my photograph taken, but she made me laugh, feel relaxed, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

The result if an album and prints, showing she had listened to what we had told her we wanted. She had made sure she had taken the full itinerary of family portraits we requested. What we had not expected was the way Josie added her own artistic flair to our requests, and made them unique.

Our wedding album is breath-taking, with as much attention to detail in the back ground, as in her subjects. She has produced some truly stunning photographs that I am proud to show off, and have on display in every room of my house.

I would highly recommend her as a very competent, professional photographer who can effortlessly get the best out of her subjects, and has the artistic ability to make every shot a masterpiece.

Claire and Zac Thompson

Josie, many thanks for helping to make our wedding experience even better than we expected! Your photographs speak for themselves but also we were so grateful to you for managing the taking of the photographs in such a calm, humorous and relaxed way.

It cannot be easy getting all the right people together at the right times and it can be a real pain at weddings hanging around waiting but the way you managed it was fabulous. Thank you very much.

We booked Josie to come and take some family photos in our home, she was so friendly and made us feel relaxed straight away, even my husband who really doesn’t like having his photograph taken.

She made the whole experience great fun, we did the normal posed shots that I had expected but then she got us to have a pillow fight and just mess around.

The results were stunning, she has really captured my daughter’s character and so many of the photos she took brought a lump to my throat, they are just so beautiful.

I would recommend Josie, in fact I have! She is doing my sister’s wedding in October.

Thank you for the wonderful photo of Ellie and Lauren. Its proving very difficult to pick a favourite to have enlarged. You’re obviously a little miracle worker to have convinced not only myself and their Mum to be in the photograph, but you got their Dad involved and relaxed too!

Harris Family, Sherborne, Dorset


Thanks Josie for our family photo shoot, we all enjoyed it very much; including the dogs! We now have so many great photos to choose from so thank you again.
