“Not only is Joe a great wedding photographer Dorset but he’s a great guy. It honestly felt like having a friend photographing our wedding. He was equally comfortable joking with the groomsmen as he was helping out our bridesmaid in the middle of a panic attack after her dress split! We are so happy we chose Joe and he played a huge part in delivering our perfect day. Thank you.” – Annie Westerby, Dorset

Here's a little bit more about me 🙂

At this point I could start by telling you that I offer a sophisticated service from start to finish and throw in words like ’emotional’ ‘feelings’ and so on. But unless this is the first website you have come across looking for a wedding photographer Bournemouth, you have probably heard it all before.

Let’s cut to the chase, I am just a normal chap, who absolutely loves his job. (Well the wife and children might disagree with the normal part). I have been a professional wedding photographer Bournemouth for over 10 years and am recommended by some of the best venues in Dorset, if not the country.

No matter what the day throws at me…

As a professional wedding photographer Dorset. My true aim is to make sure your big day runs as seamlessly as possible and with well over 350 weddings photographed, I have pretty much seen it all. From torrential rain with 100 guests stuck under Bournemouth pier, a coach breaking down with all the wedding party on. This left me only 30 mins to get all the main family and couple shots photographed and finally to a venue drastically changing the lighting as the bride and groom walked down the aisle, leaving me only seconds to adjust my setting and get that all important shot. My point is – I will always deliver.

Working with me…

Being a people person is almost more important than the ability to take a great photo, you are with the wedding photographer all day long. If you take a look at my testimonials page you will see what my couples have to say about my personality and ability to put them and their wedding party at ease.

Here are a few examples:

"humour and friendliness really puts you at ease"

“Joe was excellent. I cannot recommend him enough. His manner is great – his humour and friendliness really puts you at ease and definitely added to the vibe of our wedding day (as you do spend a lot of the day with your photographer!) His photos are brilliant. He is a preferred supplier to many venues for a good reason! Do not hesitate to book Joe. You will not regret it!

– Victoria Logan, Ferndown, Dorset.

"he knew exactly what shots would look best"

“From the minute we met Joe over a year ago, we knew he was our wedding photographer Dorset! He was so laid back and funny, yet so professional. On the day, he didn’t disappoint! He was constantly making people laugh, relaxing everyone and he knew exactly what shots would look best. He truly made our day and we were so grateful he was there to celebrate with us! Thank you for helping us create our perfect wedding day – we can’t wait to see the pictures!”
– Gaby Wheelhouse, Poole, Dorset.

"calm and humorous approach was a breath of fresh air"

“It was an absolute pleasure and a great laugh to have Joe capture our wedding day. His laid back, calm and humorous approach was a breath of fresh air. We absolutely recommend him.”
– Leanne & Alan Southampton, Hampshire.

A note about the weather

As a wedding photographer Dorset. We all know we can never trust the weather. My promise to you is that even when all the elements are against us. I will ensure to think outside the box and create some really special wedding photos. The photo below was taken about a week before Christmas, we had high winds, flooding and darkness. (Enough to test any photographer to the max).

Here is the review left by the couple in the photo above.

"he is so easy to get on with and made my day perfect"

“One of my best decisions about my wedding was the photographer I chose! I am over the moon with my wedding pictures!! Joe has such an artistic way, with his forward thinking and planning when the heavens opened up and we faced all the elements he still produced some amazing and different photos, he is so easy to get on with and made my day perfect, he captured some beautiful moments especially of my candlelit ceremony. Thank you so much, can’t thank you enough – next will be my baby photos!!! 🙂 xxx” Alicia Matthews, Bournemouth, Dorset.
