documentary wedding photographer based in Dorset


 I’m Joan, a full of fun and energy French-born, Wedding Photographer based in beautiful Dorset.

You can watch my interview with the BBC on how I relocated my business here

We don’t know each other just yet, so I thought this may help you decide that I’m the perfect fit as your local wedding photographer. I recently asked my Instagram followers to pick one word to describe me…

Passionate, Creative, Friendly, Funny, Genuine, Passionate, Hilarious, Fun, Infectiously Positive
I’m blushing! 

I also have a youtube chanel where I give my couples Top tips every Tuesday, watch “Tuesday’s Top Tip with Joan” here

  But I believe the most important thing you need to know about me is that even after 10 years of shooting weddings.

You can read an article by Dorset Bizz News on how I successfully built my photography business in Dorset.

  I still thrive on making and seeing people happy on their special day and I believe this is why I became a documentary wedding photographer! 

Love, displays of emotions and happiness truly is what drives me. 

The excitement a kid feels in a sweet shop is pretty much how I feel at just the thought of the day ahead. I still get butterflies and a huge amount of excitement about enquiries, bookings, your day, the post processing and the delivery of your images. From London to the States, France and Sicily, I have been very fortunate to be part of your day all over the world.

I am one of the few full time Dorset Wedding Photographers with over 10 years experience. I have been so privileged to photographed in some of the most beautiful and prestigious Dorset Wedding Venues. 

Your perfect Dorset Based Wedding Photographer?

natural, emotive and editorial wedding photography

I love living in Dorset and I love documenting weddings as a photographer; witnessing love and pure happiness never gets old! Wedding photography is something I simply cannot get bored of. At the present time, I have shot over 200 weddings across Dorset & London and can honestly say no two weddings are the same! As well as photographing weddings, I also photograph families and business clients in a creative non obtrusive way, which creates the most beautiful story telling images.

Enjoy this very British Wedding Blog here and also this boho wedding here.

My preference is not to pose or stage you or your guest, my style is natural, candid and documentary or as I like to call it “fly on the wall.” Whilst I am a Bournemouth-based wedding photographer, I also travel all over the world!
