"For me weddings are about the people and the emotions. I love the buzz of nervous excitement when you’re getting ready, the emotion during the ceremony, the laughter with your friends and the quieter moments when it’s just the two of you. The day has an energy and atmosphere that will be unique to you. I want to capture this story through honest, creative, stylish images, that will take you back to your day and remind you of how you felt."

Dealing with Jo has been a pleasant experience, all the way from the first meet, before availing her services, and then keeping in touch before the wedding...to the day of the wedding, where Jo makes sure she does everything possible to get the best photographs!
I'm someone who hates being photographed, but if you look at the wedding photos, you'd think there is nowhere else I'd rather have been at that time (keeping aside the fact, that I was getting married ;) )! Every single photograph taken is amazing!
My wife & I, would definitely recommend Jo for any occasion you need a professional & friendly photographer!

Jo is just fabulous! Highly recommend her services to any couple looking for wonderful wedding pictures. She is very professional, yet warm and friendly too making you both feel relaxed and present. Just take a look at her blog for inspiration, she takes beautiful pictures (and will source an equally amazing second shooter, if required!). She's that good, you might just get featured in some popular wedding blogs too ;)

Jo is a fabulous photographer who helped us feel relaxed in front of the camera and totally embrace being ourselves. Jo captured beautifully the real essence of our wedding day, she caught on camera the laughter, romance, happiness and fun had by all our guests, moments that we will treasure forever. Jo is brilliantly professional and I could not recommend her more highly.

We couldn't be more impressed by Jo Hastings. Not only is she an extremely talented photographer (her beautiful pictures speak for themselves) but she exceeded our expectations from start to finish - from inviting us to her home to meet her to the beautiful gift box that she sent the USB stick with out photos in. She's an instantly likeable lady - our guests commented on how warm and down-to-earth she is and we felt very at ease wandering around the gardens with her having our photos done (a welcome break from the party). Thank you Jo!

Having had Jo Hastings capture our wedding in July 2016, we can confidently say that Jo Hastings is an absolutely fantastic photographer and one that really knows her trade well.
Her style leans towards the relaxed, 'in the background' type of shooting, which is what we were after, so the photos came out very natural - from how the photos turned out, we'd even say that guests almost didn't know Jo was there so they were very happy to be snapped away without even knowing possibly!
Of course Jo can also do the posed pictures very well too, and we were able to get shots of ourselves, family, friends, groomsmen and bridesmaids in some great group photos.
Professional, helpful and organised, Jo will do a fantastic job of capturing your special day, guaranteed.
