Hi, I'm Jodie.
I'm a reportage wedding photographer based in beautiful Devon, offering relaxed, natural and creative wedding photography for Devon, Cornwall and all over the UK.
I've been doing this for about ten years, and I'm also the proud owner of Smiley Happy Photography.
I adore weddings because I love people. I love watching two people commit their love for the world and to celebrate it with them. Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life: and I'd love nothing more than to share it with you.
My style? Well it's pretty simple. I like creating beautiful, artistic images in a natural and relaxed way. My style is unobtrusive and my style is clean and beautiful.
If you’ve found your way to this page, I’m going to take a guess that you’ve recently got engaged; and now you’re on the lookout for a super cool and relaxed wedding photographer who is going to document your day. Well as luck would have it, I may be the very person you need.
I’ve been working as a Devon Wedding Photographer for almost a decade, working independently for eight years and before that working alongside other wedding photographers.
I shot my first wedding on my own in 2010, and have since shot over 80 ‘I Do’s’. I’m constantly learning, and continuously striving to improve and better my skills. My style is simple: I offer relaxed and unobtrusive reportage wedding photography with an artistic edge. I want you to look at your images and feel like you haven’t missed a thing. I don’t have a thousand flashes and fancy lighting setups that I’m going to drag out on your wedding. I won’t be individually posing every guest to make sure they look poised to perfection. I’m not going to turn your couples session into a vogue-esque photoshoot. What I will do however, is capture the natural, raw emotion of your big day in an artistic and natural way. I will spend the day like a secret ninja photographer, photographing you and your guests unawares, and stop at nothing to get the perfect shot.
YOUR DAY. YOUR WAY.
Our photos are so beautiful. I don't know what to say! Not only did you take beautiful and natural photos, you were so easy to be around. Thank you. "

Working With Me
On the day, you have full control over me. I want to make sure that every couple that makes the (splendid) decision to have me there is 100% happy with the service that I provide, and am more than happy to work closely with you in order to achieve this. You can chose the coverage you want and the products that you wish to receive at the end, and I am more than happy to provide a tailored quote to suit your needs. On your big day, I will shoot for as long or as short as you require, and will discuss this with you beforehand (we can do this in person, over the phone, email, or by carrier pigeon, although the latter can be unpredictable…). Generally for most of the day I will be in the background, shooting the day as it unfolds in all its glory, but obviously I will also take you and your new husband or wife off for some beautiful portraits of you both, and will also take any formal group shots that you may require as well. As with everything I do, these are done in a relaxed and friendly manner. I won’t be bossing your Granny around or making you spend hours on your big day posing! Your wedding day should be yours to enjoy, and I see it as my duty to ensure that this can happen.
If you’re looking for a Wedding photographer that covers Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Skegness or The Seychelles (especially The Seychelles…), then get in touch. Or if you would like to take a look at more of my work, I do try to update the blog fairly regularly.
