“Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”
I am award winning professional photographer specialising in rustic documentary storytelling
Who am I?
Firstly, hello! I'm Jo a full time Yorkshire- based Photographer specialising in visual storytelling for Rural businesses and Rustic country weddings in Leyburn. I love the Yorkshire dales, adventures and vintage style.
I'm friendly, always smiling and of course, love weddings. Wedding Photography for me is telling one of the most important stories of your life!

"I always say that photography's closest cousin is poetry because of the way it sparks your imagination and leaves gaps for the viewer to fill in." Alec Soth
My Story. . .
Ok, so full disclosure . . I left the Yorkshire countryside as soon as I could. At sixteen I went off to the biggest city I could find. I went to study Photography in the hussle and bussle. I set my sights of the best University for photography in Europe, got in studied for four years, and passed with flying colours.
I wanted to be this photographer working in the big city. After five years living in London . . . I hated it. I realised most of my work was about the countryside. It looked at rural issues, fishing, farming, anything but urban life.
I moved back to Yorkshire after graduating from the top arts university in Europe. I spent five long years working in the industry, learning as much as I could. I adore what I do, I wouldn't have it any other way. Sometimes we have to take the long and hard road to get to do what we love. I've devoted my life to photography. I've been photographing weddings for the past and country life ever since. Photography is something I feel passionately about.
Over the past year I've worked in Poland, Australia, Orkney, London, and Yorkshire. At the end of the day I live in a village in Yorkshire and get to come back to my favourite place . . .the country. I have worked for numerous publications as a documentary photographer.
