Hi, I am Jo. I’m a London wedding photographer who takes her creative lead from the muted colours and sweeping cinematic grandeur of the city. I love the juxtaposition between the freshly married couple in front of me and a gorgeously gritty backdrop. I love to use the scenery and light to create cinematic, emotive and unusual imagery for my couples. It comes very naturally to me to see the world through the lens. No words needed- a photograph is worth a thousand of those.
My approach to photographing weddings could definitely be described as “modern reportage with an artistic flair“. I shoot in a discreet, unobtrusive way. I tend to shy away ever so slightly from stiff, traditional wedding photography. I do, however, pour lots of energy and creative gusto into your wedding portraits, heavily influenced by my love for street photography, analogue film photography, architecture, and light!
I also care about the small details and stuff that matters to you the most – love, feelings, and emotions.
No interference on my part, no staging, simple gentle guidance only.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU.
Can’t wait to meet you and create some magic together.
Jo launched Joasis Photography in 2014, but has been capturing couples in love since 2009. She is an award-winning, highly experienced, and commended photographer, but she prefers to be hired based on her style of work and connection with couples than industry accolades.
We have no words to express how MAGNIFICENT THESE ARE! I just honestly can't get over how good they are - we had the best day ever, and it has completely translated to the pics - the massive smiles, the cuddles from our loved ones - the PARTY PHOTOS ARE SO EPIC!! You've managed to make us look both like ourselves but magically the most glamorous versions of ourselves ever - you are truly a magician!

I couldn't recommend Jo more highly. She is a fantastic photographer, we love our wedding photos so much. We picked Jo for her storytelling style as we didn't want too many staged pictures, more to capture the energy of the day. And that is exactly what she did. She captured us, our guests and the whole day so beautifully, I can't stop looking through them and feeling like I am truly reliving it.
Jo is also a lovely person, from the first introduction chat through to publishing the photos she made us feel like she genuinely cared about our special day. She is very experienced so her organisation and attention to detail before the day is brilliant and makes you feel she is completely in control. She was also fantastic on the day, helping out where she could but also moved around so effortlessly and discretely capturing so many incredible moments.
Since our wedding two of our guests who are getting married next year have booked Jo for their own weddings. And I will continue to recommend Jo to anyone I know getting married in the future.

Choosing Jo was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
Jo was kind, professional, supportive and wonderful from start to finish. From our first zoom meeting, to the actual day, to the post wedding service, she was absolutely amazing! Jo made us feel so at ease on the day, somehow managing to be in 10 places at once and capturing every single moment so beautifully! Every one of our guests said how fabulous Jo was and how wonderful the pictures are and we are totally blown away by them.
Our photos are honestly beyond our wildest dreams, Every moment has been captured so beautifully, with such a range of images that we cannot stop looking at and will truly treasure forever. Now to try and pick which ones to print!
Thanks so much Jo! We will be recommending you to everyone!

We almost can't put into words how brilliant it was working with Jo. We adored her from the very first zoom call and couldn't be more pleased to have hired her as our wedding photographer.
Our wedding photos are nothing short of sensational - we LOVE them. They perfectly depict what we wanted from our wedding photography. Jo beautifully captured the joy of us and our guests in such a natural way. From the first look to the first dance - she caught it all and everything in between. We've had nothing but compliments from family and friends about the quality of our wedding photos. We also loved Jo's local knowledge of London to help us find the cutest area for our couple's photos.
But we have so much more than just the photos to thank her for. All correspondence with Jo before the day was so organised and detailed it just made our lives so much easier. Nothing felt like too much trouble and even in the height of a pandemic she was just so reliable. We know 2021 was a super busy year for her, but she honestly made us feel like we were the only couple she was working with that year. Jo got to know us and our characters personally and we are so thankful for that. She just went above and beyond our expectations on everything; even down to the little things like making sure my dress was straight and helping with the buttonholes. She was the most calming presence to have around you on what can easily become an overwhelming day. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer
