About Me

about image
I began my career at Shepperton Studios almost 20 years ago. It was an exciting place to work – I’d visit the sound stages during my lunch break and there’d always be a new set to explore.

When I made the jump to stills years later, wedding photography was the perfect fit.  Finding and photographing the drama of a wedding day and capturing it as it happens, unscripted and real - that's what I love the most about my job.

And wedding clients often become good friends - it's important to feel confident and relaxed with your photographer, so meeting them in person is a must!


Just to say we received the package a few days ago and we’ve been too busy showing the pictures off that I’ve not had time to reply! We are absolutely over the moon with the quality of your pictures and we can’t believe you managed to capture so many beautiful moments during the day.  We love the slideshow and the little concertina books were a lovely surprise! We would like to say a big thank you once again for cutting short your family holiday to photograph our wedding, and for doing such a marvellous job.

I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and Owen and all of our guests that you were absolutely fantastic we all adore the photographs we have received and they will serve as a fantastic reminder of the day for everybody. We love how you where able to catch moments that we otherwise would never have seen and literally all our guests have remarked at how friendly and professional you were, we certainly wouldn't even consider recommending anybody else to our friends and family we know you where perfect for our wedding from our first meeting over coffee! Should we need any professional photography in the future we wouldn't hesitate contacting you again!

Joel took some wonderful photos of our wedding, totally captured the spirit of the day and was just a pleasure have around. His calm approach meant we barely noticed he was there even though he captured all the key moments and emotion of the day! Would highly recommend!

"It was such a pleasure to have Joel as our wedding photographer! He put us at ease instantly by communicating and updating us throughout the whole process making sure we were 100% satisfied and happy at all times. He would go the extra mile working very hard together with us to fit in all the things that we envisioned for our day and we were not let down. He captured a truly spectacular day whilst making it feel relaxed and natural. We and our guests loved how personable he was, never intrusive and just slipped into the background working his magic to photograph our beautiful moments ...
