Affordable Quality

In all my photography work (I shoot portraits, events, fashion and commercial too) I strive for quality. I also believe in great value, which is why my prices are so affordable.

Another reason I’m able to offer such good prices and availability is because my professional work is diversified. This means I often can make myself available for late booking, last minute emergency wedding arrangements. Particularly within Southampton and the wider Hampshire area. You can browse my portfolio here.

As you’ll see from my work, I love to capture beautiful candid moments. At the same time I’m more than happy when creating a carefully composed portrait or group shot. So whether you prefer a more contemporary, natural or documentary style, or want something more formal, I can provide it.

Packages start from under £500.

Joyce & Matt
Very impressed with Joe. Clearly a professional and also super friendly. Captured all the important moments of our event (wedding), and highly competent with editing afterwards to suit our requirements. Highly recommend.

Joe did the photography for our wedding (in Bath in 2009). We didn't really notice him working at the time but when we received the photos they covered every sort of aspect and angle, every mood and nuance of what was a busy, enjoyable and varied day. He managed to capture formal to informal images without any of the usual cliches (often difficult to avoid I know), and produced a very special portfolio for us. Joe is a great combination of professional and artist, much to be recommended!
