Sonder (n.) the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries, and inherited craziness—an epic love story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

I'm Joanna. Born, raised, and based in the South West of England, I'm a professional photographer (and wannabe cowboy) available for weddings and elopements with a love of capturing wildly romantic occasions for those adventurous souls.

My photography style is modern and intimate, usually captured out in the natural elements. I’m lucky to have the Atlantic Coast as the backdrop for many of my photo sessions, from sandy beaches in Cornwall to the rocky National Trust headlands right here at home in Devon.

I'm also available to travel to you, wherever you are in the UK, or pehaps you've gone into full adventure mode and chosen a destination wedding? I'm available for those too!

Please get in touch if you’d like to chat about my photography services, discuss your creative vision or just ramble about dogs and horses (I'm obsessed with those) Either way, I'd love to say hello!
