For me photography is about seeing something beautiful in everyday life, a feeling or a thought, a means of conveying emotion. I love photography for so many reasons and one reason is its ability to celebrate a moment. We reminiscence in past experiences or events and silently communicate them through the form of photography.
I'm Jo at Iris & Ivy Weddings and Portraits, I would love nothing more than to capture your wedding day and preserve your memorable moments. I like to keep things simple, my approach consists of photographing people in their natural element with the use of natural light. With a soft and romantic style I like to tell stories, in an informal and honest fashion with visual sophistication. I take in the finer details too, I understand the time and effort that goes into the preparation for your day.
Often the smaller details can be forgotten all too quickly.
Inspired by films, I strive to get that cinematic feel in my images, like stills from a movie. Relaxed and discreet, I'm not going to fake moments for the camera or distract you or your guests from your day. Your day is about you not me. I believe that natural interaction between people in love will create beautiful moments. I will simply step back and visually communicate what your day brings. Every wedding is beautifully unique and this is why I love weddings, love photography and ultimately I love my job.
I am based in the West Midlands and more than willing to travel wherever your wedding maybe in the UK or abroad if you are having a destination wedding. Travel is a massive passion of mine, to combine it with wedding photography keeps me dreaming so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you're going abroad!
