Life of a Wedding Photographer

Welcome to my little blog space. This is where you’ll find all the beautiful weddings I shoot and some wedding photographer ramblings.

What people are sayin'

From start to finish he was perfect!

If you are anything like me you always check reviews for anything! even though I never usually write them…however on this occasion we were so happy with Josh that we really wanted to give him a great review. I genuinely cannot say enough good things about Josh…from start to finish he was perfect, not only is he a lovely bloke and very easy to talk/communicate with throughout the process but the end product was AMAZING! On the day of our wedding, Josh was like one of the guests the way he interacted with us and all the guests with his genuine character which brings out the best of people on the day for the pictures…but at the same time, he maintains flawless professionalism! He is everywhere you need him to be whilst being almost ninja-esc in blending into the background to capture the beautiful natural moments that you hope for.

So look no further! reach out to Josh and when you meet him and have a look at some of his work…you will no doubt be convinced as I was…then all you need to do is look forward to the pictures!

Thanks Again for being part of our special day Josh…we will look back knowing we had the perfect man for the job and it was a pleasure to have met you!

Josh Captured the day perfectly!

Josh capture the essence and beauty of our day perfectly. The photos he produced are the memories that will stay with us for life. They exceeded every expectation we had for the day. My friends and family all commented afterwards that Josh managed to put everyone at ease. Chatting away to everyone as well as capturing every casual and formal moment of the day. Even letting my young cousin have a go at being, ‘the official photographer’ for a couple of snaps which I know he absolutely loved.

Josh was incredible

From start to finish Josh was incredible. Ever since we first spoke to Josh on Skype then meeting in person at the pub we knew that he was the photographer for us to capture our wedding day. The photos came out amazing and were so natural.

On the day Josh was part of the family and everyone loved him being there, he has such a great personality, got on with everyone and liked cracking jokes.

I would highly recommend Josh to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer as he makes you feel at ease and the final products are stunning.

Thank you so much for being part of our day we couldn’t have asked for anyone better!

Just book him!!

We don’t really know where to start with this review as there are so so many positives!
Josh completely captured the vibe of our wedding and our personalities in each and every single one of our wedding photos. We really feel like we are back there in the swing of it when we look back over our photos, which is so lovely.
We aren’t particularly comfortable with having our photo taken, so were quite worried when starting this process that our photos may look a bit staged or awkward. Josh put us totally at ease, and his laid back style meant we barely even knew he was photographing us half the time! Which resulted in the most fun, relaxed and genuine photos that totally showed off the real us.
We are truly thankful for creating these amazing photos- and documenting some amazing memories that will stay with us forever.
He was an absolute joy to meet and work along with, and we truly feel like we have not just gained a mega photo album, but gained a mate too.

Pictures are beyond amazing!

Having known Josh for many years (and not too long ago finding out he was in fact family? lol!), it was almost a no-brainer to ask him to be our wedding photographer. From start to finish he has been an absolute gem to work with.

The funny thing was, the weather was absolutely shocking… and in all honesty, I was a beyond upset that I thought we had missed out on ‘opportunities’ for outdoor shots/landscape shots, you know, the kind you see that are real ‘keepsakes’ …

…well F U weather, our pictures are beyond amazing, and Josh captured everything so beautifully and naturally from early morning right through including the rain!

The guy is amazing and we are super proud to call him a friend and family!

Lots of love, the Nicho’s 😉

Amazing day, amazing photos, Amazing guy!

Josh was amazing! In fact, we don’t really think there is a superlative large enough to describe how happy we are with how he covered our wedding. I genuinely think no other photographer could come close in terms of what Josh offered in regards of his skill in capturing natural moments from our wedding, his enthusiasm and happy go lucky attitude or his planning of fantastic shots around both the city and the ever beautiful Norfolk coast. Everybody loves a good wedding – but Josh positively lives for them. His enthusiasm seemed boundless, which is what you need when planning gets a bit heavy going; and his knowledge and experience was extremely helpful. In particular, he was so laid back but effortlessly professional at the same time. He really helped us feel at ease about the whole thing and it was great to meet for a beer to chat through plans and strategies for helping us capture our special day on camera. He went above and beyond and we couldn’t be more happy with every aspect of what he’s provided for us and we can’t recommend him enough. Thanks so much!!! Joe and Sharna.

The Best!

Joshua was the best! He has made our special day last with incredible photos that were even better than I imagined. And he wasn’t afraid to go wading into the lake for the right angles, either. He put me at ease, incredibly, and our children adored him – so much so that we didn’t have to worry what they were up to whilst we were perched on a rock in the middle of a stream. We now have the very difficult task of picking just a few of the results to put on our walls at home… Thanks, Josh! x

Awesome Photographer!

We got married in August 2017 and we really couldn’t have picked a better photographer! Beforehand, we met Josh for a drink and chatted, he was really friendly and accommodating to everything we wanted, and made a great effort to learn the crazy Irish names of our families. On the day, Josh was fab, he helped keep things calm, and even went away and bought my Mum a disposable camera as she had forgotten hers 🙂 The photos are exactly what we wanted, everybody looks natural, happy and the colours are so gorgeous. Not to mention the amazing picture of the wedding car….Since the wedding, pretty much every single guest has mentioned what a great photographer we had and said he was “just like a guest, but in a good way”. Josh got everyone laughing and smiling and really captured the relaxed vibe we had at the wedding. Thanks so much again Josh!

Aoife and Conor

Absolute dream

We feel so blessed to have had Josh as our wedding photographer. Not only is he easygoing and makes the whole process effortless, he is also super fun and helpful to have around! The photos he produced are magical and perfectly capture our day – we couldn’t have asked for better. If you are in the process of choosing a wedding photographer, we highly recommend Josh!

Fantastic, talented and friendly!

Joshua was the most fantastic, talented and friendly photographer anyone could wish for! Both my husband and I dislike having our picture taken, however, Josh put us at ease instantly from the first meeting. Josh went over and above to get the best shots that also fit in with our vision perfectly. Our pictures are incredible!! Give this man an award!!!!

Hollie + Dan

What a blast!!!!

We were so lucky to have Josh as our photographer. He brought such an energy to our day but still had everyone at ease. All of our photographs were so natural and captured all the special moments. Every photo had such an attention to detail that I don’t think anyone else could have done. Now we have beautiful photos to cherish forever, little snapshots of one of the most incredible days of our lives.

Made our day amazing!

Josh felt like an old friend the first time we met him (at my friend’s wedding). My Husband and I have never liked having our photo taken and we were not looking forward to that part of the wedding! When we met up with him Josh reassured us that everything would be fine and relaxed. It really was! We kept well away from long lists of people. Josh captured the natural smiles of our friends and family. Josh is a professional and he was part of what made our day amazing.

Marie + James

Awesome!!

So incredibly grateful to Josh for capturing our special day. He was awesome from start to finish. We have had so many guests commenting on how brilliant he was and we couldn’t agree more.

Made our day!

From the moment we met Josh a few weeks before the big day we knew we’d made the right choice and it was going to be awesome. And it was! He fitted in with all our guests so well that most people thought he was a friend of ours. Nothing was too much trouble and we went the extra mile to make sure the photos were on point! From the time spent capturing the build-up at both the barbers with the boys and then at my house with all the bridesmaids. He was like a photo ninja as we didn’t realise he was there half the time but he made sure he got pics of everyone. He ticked the box of getting the posed family photos but mostly shot in a documentary style to get lots of natural smiles and joy. We went off on a little jaunt around the Norwich lanes with the bridal party to get some lovely pics in the perfect setting. And made sure all the main moments were all captured (cutting the ‘cheese’ cake and first dance). Then stayed around well into the evening for when the party really got started. And even delivered over 500 photos within a few weeks after the wedding (with a couple straight after as a nice teaser). We couldn’t be happier with them and have had so many nice compliments from friends and family. Thank you so much Josh – you’re the best!!

Beautiful photos & a Great Guy!

Was so blessed to have Josh as our photographer for our special day! He made all my friends and family, as well as us, feel so at ease in front of the camera. Making us all laugh with ease to capture such natural and beautiful moments we will completely treasure! Absolutely would recommend Josh to anyone booking their wedding, he not only captured our day better than I ever imagined but his personality and talent at what he does really add an extra special element to the day!! We so glad we booked you so thank you! All our friends and family are still talking about how great you are!!

Wendy + Louis

Memory Maker!

Josh has made our day last forever he is a true memory maker, A master of his craft, his quirky eye makes him an original, he takes time to get to know you as a couple which shines through in his photographs. We have found a great new friend, So you guys just book this guy you won’t regret it!

Seriously…Best Photographer Ever!

Even before we had seen the photos we couldn’t recommend Josh enough. A joy to have with us on our day. There wasn’t a moment that we were standing around posing for photos, just lots of natural, true shots that tell the story of our day perfectly. Overall a BLOODY BRILLIANT photographer! Thanks Josh!! Verity + James x

Josh was just brilliant!

Josh was just brilliant. Right from our first meeting, all through the planning process and definitely in the day he ‘got’ us as a couple and as individuals. He made us feel so comfortable. Neither of us too keen on having our photos taken. It was all just perfect. On the day itself, he felt more like a friend than a ‘photographer’. He helped calm our nerves and was a great support. All of our guests have commented on how brilliant he is and what a crucial part he played in making our day perfect!

The best service and the most fun!

From start to finish we had the best service and most fun with Josh. We live in Australia and was organising our wedding in the UK in 6 months. Josh was happy to skype and email. As soon as we spoke to him we knew we had found a good one!! We feel so lucky to have found such a fab guy and awesome photographer to snap our day. We had a pre-photoshoot and having never had professional photos taken. My partner is a pro at that, I was feeling a bit nervous, Josh put me quickly at ease and we both had a lot of fun. I never once had a worry that I wouldn’t get nice pictures and just let him do his thing, and so happy with the results.

We love our photos an now finding space to put them all up is the problem and choosing which ones!! Big thanks to you Josh, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

The most kick-Ass Wedding Photographer this world has to offer!!!

From day one Josh was a star!!! He made myself and my wife (to be at the time) feel relaxed and not once was it awkward. During the lead up to the wedding, we all got to know each other so well. We had many laughs with each other. On the day of our wedding, everyone’s emotions were high. Josh managed to get everyone involved, smiling and laughing even when the camera wasn’t in action. But out of the whole experience, I am very pleased to say that not only did we get many beautiful pictures that captured our day but a friend that we have still kept in contact with over the years. But one thing is that this beautiful human being will go the extra mile for you to guarantee that every picture that is taken reflects your personality!!!

AMAZING in every way!!!!

I’ve been trying to find the right way to properly show how fantastic Josh was as our wedding photographer, but nothing is coming close, so all I can say is that he was AMAZING, in every way, and hiring him will be one of the best decisions you’ll make for your wedding/event!

He made the process and lead up so easy, and dealt with all our crazy last minute emails and the fact we forgot to send him the itinerary….at all (Sorry Josh). On the day it was immediately like having one of the family there, Josh was so friendly and calming and managed to capture incredible ‘getting ready’ photos without me realising he was there.

Once the day kicked off and everyone got down to the partying, Josh did the best job making sure we got those important photos – one with your parents, your granny, your dog and of course, your new spouse, (which I imagine was a little like herding cats!). The photos that came out were beautiful, every single one, and captured all of those little moments you might miss as you can’t be everywhere at once, however much you want to be. Seeing that game of beer pong, or those dance moves or that hug through the photos was like re-living it all over again.

Josh, thank you so much, for everything. And for anyone reading this review, we can’t recommend him enough.

Fabulous Fantastically Talented Legend!

We came across Josh after seeing some amazing atmospheric photographs of an old school friend’s wedding shared on social media. We instantly admired his photography and knew we needed to arrange to meet him.

So, it all began in the Urban Jungle café. Josh has a way of making you feel as though you’ve been old friends for a long time when actually you’ve only just met. His warm and welcoming northern self-made us feel totally comfortable, which, for both of us was a huge deal! We knew we didn’t want a super formal photographer who specialised in staged shots, so when Josh described his work to us, it filled us with excitement and we just smiled at each other and knew we’d found our wedding photographer. I loved that he was excited by our ideas and was willing to listen and collaborate with us. His eyes lit up when we used words and phrases like SPONTANEOUS, RELAXED, NATURAL and ‘let’s just go with it’!

Our engagement shoot was MAGIC! We had to be patient due to the freak weather on our first attempt but the wait was TOTALLY worth it! We knew we wanted to be photographed by the beach. We told Josh that we were going to bring our BIG kites and he just went with it. The thing is, Josh will completely embrace and make the most of the moment. The day of the shoot, we had incredible light, it was warm, and we were willing, so, we all ended up in the sea. The results of that decision are just insane and we truly still can’t believe that he managed to capture us in such an intense but natural way. We were blown away!

If that wasn’t enough, we still had our wedding to come! We gave Josh a very open idea of the selected photos we definitely needed to capture for the family and we totally trusted him to document our wedding. Our day undoubtedly felt amazing and the moments Josh captured ranged from incredibly special and intimate moments between ourselves, our family and friends to fancy dress carnage on the dance floor.

If you are looking for a photographer that moulds to your day but totally brings his own fun, carefree but professional personality to the party, then this is your man. Everyone has said how brilliant Josh was at the wedding, he was certainly a BIG art of our wedding day and we absolutely LOVED the final selection of photos. We received our special package this week accompanied by HARIBO’s (my husband’s proposal choice). Josh picks up on every slight detail and makes your day feel completely unique and personal. He won’t just turn up on your wedding day and that’s it, he is the whole package. We cannot recommend Josh enough! He’s a FABULOUSLY FANTASTICALLY TALENTED LEGEND! BOOK HIM NOW!!!

An absolute diamond!

We literally could not rate Josh any higher! Met up a couple of times for a drink before the wedding to get to know him which meant we were comfortable around him on the day. On the actual wedding day, he was so wonderful, making us feel at ease and being a great addition to the day without intruding. The whole album of pictures is fantastic and are my favourite pictures in the world. He captured our perfect day in its essence! Thanks Josh.

Gabriella + James

Photos with such personality!

Such a fantastically warm and friendly person. All of our guests loved him! He really went the extra mile in all areas. For example, driving several hours to do a pre-wedding shoot at our local sailing club which was so important to us. On the day itself, he was so relaxed and easy going. Happy to change plans whilst ensuring we got our key images. His photos have such personality! They capture the humour and happiness of the day, we can truly relive the day through his photos.

Maia + Pete

Couldn’t think of anyone better!

From the moment we met Joshua we knew that he was the right person for our wedding. We sat chatting like we had known each other a lifetime. On the day he got the brief perfectly and was more like a guest at the wedding. Josh was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. We were looking for natural shots. No posed/group pictures we wanted shots that caught people in the moment and not forced. He fitted into our group and people thought he was our friend. I would recommend him to everyone I know that is getting married. One of the guests has even booked him as their photographer off the back of how he worked on the day.Thank you, Joshua.

Emma + Simon

Joshua is amazing!

He’s easy to work with, professional and friendly and super talented. Book now!

This man is Amazing!!

This man is amazing!! When we entered his competition we didn’t think any of it, then found out we won we couldn’t believe it!
We couldn’t honestly think of anyone better to shoot our wedding but him!

Joshua has always made us feel at ease throughout the whole wedding and engagement shoot process,nothing but laughs and being ourselves!

Throughout our engagement shoot it was more like 3 people having laughs and jokes as friends rather than a shoot!

Myself as a person I am not a confident person and myself as a bride I never thought I looked good enough even on the day but Joshua put me at ease and told me to enjoy the day and forget what others think!

We couldn’t believe how many people asked if Joshua was a guest at the wedding! Clearly he was a guest 🙂

So much laughter and so much smiles he brought to us all!

We really could go on and on. We have a friend and photographer for life! 🙂

He truly captured the happiest moments in our life!

Thank you so much for all you have done for us!

Book him now!

We first met Josh when he shot our friend’s wedding last summer, chatting to him at the wedding it was immediately obvious what a cool guy he is and when we saw their photos we were blown away.
Needless to say when it came to booking a photographer for our own wedding he was immediately top of our list.
We meet up with Josh to discuss our wedding and what sort of day we had planned, Josh really takes the time to get to know his clients and what’s important to them. We had a hoot with him and he was booked! Absolutely no regrets we did! He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish & couldn’t have made things any easier for us.
Josh has a fantastic eye for photography, our photos not only capture the amazing atmosphere of our day but also so many of the little things that we otherwise wouldn’t have seen or perhaps of forgotten. We couldn’t be happier to have these incredible momentos from our wedding, every time we look at them it’s like reliving the day all over again, which you’ll definitely be thankful for as it’s true when everyone says it passes by in a flash!
We can’t recommend Josh enough, book him now!
