I’ve seen Jo at work at the Iberian Performance Show and she has captured some beautiful images. Truly striking. Always a pleasure to talk to and be around.

We recently did a family photo shoot with Jo and Nic after they photographed our wedding 2 years ago. The day was so enjoyable and the photos exquisite. Really natural. Highly recommended! More...

After seeing some of Jo's pictures on her stand at Badminton Horse Trials I knew that was exactly what I wanted for me & my horse! The results were stunning! Jo & Nic provided a service far greater than I expected. I have now got life long memories of my special boy thanks to them both :) More...

I saw Jo's stand at Gatcombe and knew I could not pass up the opportunity to have the chance of such amazing pictures of my horses, especially as they are both in their twilight years!. The shoot was fun and relaxed and the horses behaved (mostly!) and Jo and Nic were so patient. The photos are amazing and I now have a very special collection that I can keep forever that mean the world to me. Thank you More...

Jo and Nick came to the yard where I keep my horse to do a photo shoot for the owners and I was so lucky to have some photos done of my Connemara mare as well. They are beautiful photos and nothing was too much trouble thank you Jo for taking the time to do them. More...

We met Jo & Nick about 6 months before our wedding and were immediately reassured that we'd made the right choice and they understood what we wanted to achieve. Our wedding was a small family/friends event over 3 days at a venue that they'd photographed at before so the ideas were a great combination of what we wanted and what they knew would work best. We had a very specific plan and Jo & Nick took it all in and they added to it with their love of the architecture and the grounds. We didn't want any formal shots and loved the idea of both of them capturing moments of groups and angles throughout the course of the day/evening. Some of our favourite photos are those taken by the '2nd' photographer for certain shots capturing some real moments.

We were really happy with the number of conversations we had around locations, groups and specific shots. The care and attention that they both took in the lead up to the event gave both of us reassurance and trust that the results would be amazing. On the day they were fantastic, friendly, relaxed, punctual. They genuinely cared about us have the most incredible day.

Within a few days we got an early view of some of the shots which were stunning and got us so excited about seeing the rest. The final stage of designing the album was again both an enjoyable and easy experience with a face to face meeting to talk through layout, designs, and covers. Jo was able to accommodate all of our requests and we received the album really quickly, which we love, and has created an amazing story of the weekend.

I could not recommend Jo & Nick more highly. If you want an incredible photographer who is focussed on understanding what you want and delivering on it then look no further.

Thank you Jo and Nic! You are both brill - I honestly don't think I could have chosen better photographers! Not only fab photos but also our wedding guests have said how attentive and pleasant you both were on the day. And you put up with our silliness and incorporated it into the pics and the mood of the pics. I will treasure them. More...

Jo and Nick are nearly part of the family! They've done our wedding, baby shoots and more recently family ones. First and foremost their work is outstanding, each time really embracing the characteristics of us all. They know locations, time of year and are also two genuinely nice people. From babies upwards they are patient and engaging. We couldn't recommend them high enough. Sarah & Iain More...

We booked Jo and Nic for our wedding and were very pleased with the whole experience. We found Jo through our venue and it was clear that she understood the kind of style that we were after. The planning went very smoothly and on the day they were prompt and organised. The photos that we have since received are excellent, and despite neither of us being keen on having photos taken, they look relaxed and natural. Would definitely recommend. More...

Jo and Nick were absolutely amazing. They came highly recommend to me and they definitely lived up to the exceptions. They were brilliant on the day with amazing results. Jo and Nick have great ideas on how to make your photos fun and different but still having the traditional wedding shots too. My wedding pictures are fantastic and better than I could ever imagine. I am a wedding planner, so meet a lot of photographers and I will always recommend Jo Hansford Photography. They are also lovely people that make being photographed comfortable and the price is great too. More...

Review from my mum about the shoot:

Jo and Nic met Lauren (my daughter) and I for a "shoot" on a rainy August day. We were "all" really excited (by which I mean Lauren and I, Marley and Jess our four legged companions). Jo was so careful ahead of time getting us prepared both practically (right clothes) and mentally (right head space).

Jo has a love of her craft and the subject that exuded from her from the moment she arrived. She bounced across the car park all smiles and energy which was really important because I was nervous and the horse had a mind of his own.

We had an incredible day. I forgot to be nervous, he didn't forget to be naughty, and in spite of it all we had fun and laughed a lot.

I have no idea given the nature of the subject matter with which Jo wasn't blessed how she managed to pull off such incredible work. I left thinking "crikey, I hope she got something". In truth she got everything I could ever have wanted and more.

She captured me in a way I can bear to look at. That's rare. She captured the essence and spirit of Marley despite him being determined to constantly do the opposite of what we were asking. She captured my friendship with Marley in images which I now have to hold on to for a lifetime.

The photos help me to see me through Jo's eyes. They are so much more competent than mine. She is an incredible judge of what makes a "good photo" - so much so I've stopped trying to see that for myself. I "just ask Jo".

She's taken immense care. She's told me over and over she wants me to be happy, I am so happy I could burst.

Working with Jo isn't getting photos taken. It's a life experience. Do it. You won't regret it.

My two daughters, Freya and Grace had a fantastic afternoon with Jo and Nick and their 3 ponies and dogs! It was very professionally done but fun all the same. Jo and Nick were very patient considering they spent 5 hours with children and animals and the results were fantastic. An great afternoon and pictures to treasure. More...

Jo & Nic helped me with a very special request and I am so pleased with the result. They created an amazing photograph for me to have as a memory of my beautiful horse. They also produced this in a very short time frame. Thank you very much to you both. I would definitely recommend this talented team! More...

Jo and Nic were so wonderful both in the lead up to the day and on the day itself. They make you feel so comfortable and are so warm. They had lots of great ideas and you could tell they really love the job they do. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful, they perfectly captured the feeling of our day! It does feel like they can’t do enough for you! Thoroughly recommend! More...

My 14 year old daughter, Lottie, sorted the whole shoot out with Jo to take photos of her ponies. Jo was kind and prompt in her communications and worked around our busy life to come on a Bank Holiday Monday. The shoot was the most delightful experience and Jo and Nick’s attention to detail was first class. They accommodated all of our wishes without question and even took photos of our dog and my other daughter and her horse to please the whole family. They stayed for a long shoot to get just the right light and scenery and were so accommodating. My husband and I were really impressed as it surpassed our expectations hugely. As for the results we could not be more pleased. The amount of attention and detail Jo and Nick put into the showing of our huge album was just an unforgettable experience. We have now got some amazing photos we enjoy around our house reminding us of special memories and especially Lottie’s pony of a lifetime, Nutty. You are very special photographers with a passion and skill I have not experienced before. We cannot thank you enough. More...

The first time we met Jo and Nick to talk about them capturing our wedding, they realised we are not a conventional couple and would not be having a standard wedding. We talked about the Planetarium for the ceremony and there was mention of a hamster wheel which I was determined to get on in my dress! Lucky for us they were not put off but intrigued and up for something a bit different.
From that moment they were supportive and took so much time and care, understanding exactly what we wanted and getting to know us. We had a great engagement shoot and they were kind enough to let my parents, very keen photographers, to come along and watch. My Dad had found Jo for us and his judgement was spot on.
Thank you so much for enabling us to focus on our wedding day, our guests and all the fun craziness that happened. We could relax knowing that every moment was being preserved for us.
Jo and Nick Blended into the background to allow guests to be captured naturally as well as guiding Jack and I on how and where to stand for the more posed shots.
We love the pictures from our wedding, the only problem is that they are all so good it's very hard to choose which ones to put up!

I first came into contact with Jo Hansford Photography when I was given a voucher as a Christmas present.
I was thrilled to think I was going to get some quality photographs of Bertie my 25 year old forever pony.
It was decided to wait for better weather to arrange the date for the shoot.
Jo was very flexible when organising the date and was able to arrange the time to suit my hectic work commitments.
The day arrived and as I getting ready I suddenly realised that I was nervous. I don't really enjoy having my photograph taken and there I was setting off to a photo shoot where, along with Bertie, I would be the focus!
I needn't have worried. Jo and Nic immediately made me feel at ease , in fact I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity of being photographed with Bertie and Dexter my miniature dachshund.
I was sorry when the session was over but eagerly awaited the photographs.
We (yes all my family- poor Jo) descended on Jo and Nic's lovely home. They were the perfect hosts and we were soon all settled around the screen waiting for the great reveal.
The photographs came one after another,
all beautiful and full of character. We all cried as so lovely.
Jo demonstrated an enormous amount of patience as I wanted to examine each shot several times before selecting the best.
Selections made and orders confirmed we left full of excitement about my purchases.
I am now the proud owner of a selection of amazing photographs, and a beautiful book of my beloved Bert that truly reflects his personality.
I can only sum up the whole experience as amazing from start to finish.
"Thank you" to Jo and Nic for a superb service and a big "Thank you" to my Mum who gave me the perfect voucher. I will cherish the photos forever.

Right from the start, it was clear that Jo was the right person for us! Immediately, she made us feel relaxed and both her and her husband, Nic were friendly and open to our ideas. They were great at communicating with us in the lead up to the big day, making everything seem easy and simple.

On the day, they made us feel calm and the photos are amazing- not an easy feat for two very un-photogenic people! We cannot thank the two of them enough for creating such special images from our day.

Right from our first meeting, it was clear Jo really understood us and exactly the sort of photography we were after for our wedding. We met with a number of photographers in the early planning stages, but none of them came close in what Jo and Nic offered in terms of skill, enthusiasm or experience.On the day Jo and Nic were superb. They arrived early and stayed later than expected. They were like ninjas going from room to room capturing every moment and their banter kept us laughing even in the wind and rain (thank you British summer!). The photos tell the story of our day so perfectly, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you so much. More...

Jo and Nic recently shot our wedding and were with us every step of the way in the build up to the big day to offer their guidance and support. They were so lovely and made us feel so comfortable on the day and it was a pleasure to have them be a part of our wedding. All the photos are gorgeous and really reflect the special moments of the day that meant so much to us. It was such a fantastic bonus to have two such brilliant photographers to capture all the candid shots as well as the more traditional poses. The only difficult was deciding which pictures to go in the album and there were so many that we loved! I would definitely recommend them to anyone! More...

We've done two shoots with Jo and have loved both the experience and the photos! She made us feel super relaxed and it was great fun (and we aren't keen on having our photo taken usually!) Also great to go through and choose photos afterwards. Loads of friends and family have commented on how lovely the photos are. Would thoroughly recommend! More...

With all the planning that's involved in a wedding, the support of your team can make a huge difference. This is where Nik and Jo excelled from the first moment we met them.They took the time to get to know us as a couple and understand in detail what we wanted from our wedding - they supported us throughout the planning stages and even more so on the day. They captured our memories so beautifully and have left us with memories that will last a lifetime. We would recommend this wonderful team wholehearted! More...

Jo did a fantastic job with our wedding photography from the very start of the process, being on the ball with shoot lists etc., through to calm, efficient creativity on the day itself, and finally rounding it off with a great album design. Can't recommend highly enough :) More...

Thank you SO much for our beautiful wedding photographs. From first meeting you we knew we had chosen the perfect photographers for our special day. Your friendly manner, excitement and creativity made our day so special. All the shots were stunning, we had such difficulty choosing them for our album as we loved them all! You weren't just there for the wedding day but you put so much time and effort into getting to know us before hand, making us feel at ease on the day and then meeting with us afterwards to show us the shots and help us create a wonderful album. We will definitely be recommending you to many people! Thanks so much! Josh and Sarah x More...

Jo & Nic are truly amazing photographers. They know just how to put the customer at ease and manage to capture every magical moment. They are patient and friendly and know what works well for every individual. Working with horses can prove challenging sometimes however they can adapt to every situation. Their pictures are breathtaking and I wouldn't use anybody else. More...

We have been so happy with our decision to have Jo Hansford Photography capture our wedding day. Through the whole journey right from the initial meeting, to our engagement shoot and the wedding day Jo has been friendly, helpful and professional, spending time to get to know us and show us her work. Jo is a real storyteller and captured all the emotion of our wedding day so beautifully, from the initial preparations right through to the evening. We have so many natural shots that I didn't even know were being taken. We got married on a cold and windy December day and I'm sure it wasn't easy to get so many lovely photographs with the wind blowing my hair and wedding dress all over the place! Jo has the perfect balance of being easy going so you feel completely comfortable around her but also being assertive - so necessary for gathering and directing people for your group shots when you have a large wedding party, limited time and a windy day when people don't want to be hanging around outdoors! When planning our wedding the photographer was such an important choice for us and we have relived our day over and over through Jo's work. Highly recommended! More...
