Jo Markland is the most amazing wedding photographer. She has the most beautiful understanding of light that results in photographs that are glass sharp where they should be, yet diffused with the most subtle and glorious colour. More importantly, Jo Markland has a magical talent: She can see you as a person and is able to take photographs of you the way that you actually are. Our greatest wedding photography fear was that we would end up looking at rather beautiful pictures of ‘other’ people. What she delivered was ‘us’ – our characters captured the way we understand and like to see ourselves. This was, we thought, a rather remarkable achievement. READ MORE
So, with Jo you will get great pictures. There is, however, more to being a wedding photographer than this. You invite someone into your immediate circle for a very special day.
Jo was brilliant right from the very start. She has a very authentic honesty and will tell you precisely what she thinks. And fortunately, with her way, if the news is bad you tend to laugh. A person that can do this in the wedding circus is worth their weight in gold. She works many, many weddings and assiduously collects the names of the suppliers. As such she is able to provide really good advice on who to use when you are lost and looking for suppliers that match your style.
Jo takes the time out to really spend time with you and work out who you are. Every step along the way you are managed wittily (and yet firmly) on your homework for her – which she makes easy. We didn’t have a single review point on our wedding photo books they were so beautifully laid out (you just chose those going in). She even took my Mum and Dad’s copy of the photo book to the UK on holiday to be posted. With Jo you can sit back and trust that she will manage the process and give you photos to last a lifetime. She is a delight.
