We’re Jo and Nic, the husband and wife team behind Jo Hansford Photography. Based in the South West, we photograph horses, weddings, families and pets throughout Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds.

We love to travel too, so we often carry our cameras across the globe, shooting in places such as France, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

When we’re not busy taking pictures, Jo enjoys horse riding, running and yoga. Nic loves music, gadgets, great coffee and cooking. Together, we adore spending time in Portugal – it’s our inspiration, our creative muse, our place to relax, reset and unwind. We love the slower pace of life out there, the history, the culture and the food, not to mention the colour and vibrancy of the landscape.

We capture authentic moments, creating images that become more and more precious over time.
We’re visual storytellers who look for the little details that paint a much bigger picture. From laughter and smiles that reveal a loving bond to stolen kisses that illustrate a deep connection, our work is honest, natural and beautiful.
Our style combines classic elegance with contemporary reportage. Known for our relaxed, unobtrusive approach, we make every shoot as personal and individual as possible, so your photographs reflect who you really are. Above all, we want you to enjoy the experience, have fun and come away with photographs you love.
Jo’s always loved expressing herself and being creative. She first discovered her passion for photography while travelling in Europe. Keen to capture the colours, sights and sounds she found along the way, she began taking photographs, first with a compact camera and then a film SLR.

After a brief career in journalism, she decided to retrain and in 1999 she launched Jo Hansford Photography.

Nic first exercised his natural creativity through music, but when Jo thrust a camera into his unsuspecting hands back in 2003, she helped unlock a new talent. Becoming a husband and wife team was never part of our grand plan, but our styles complimented each other perfectly and our combined work became popular very quickly.

All these years later, and having shot hundreds of weddings all over the world, we still get a real buzz out of working together.

In 2012, we were ready to explore a new genre. Eager to keep our work fresh and stay inspired, we found ourselves drawn to equine photography. Jo’s had a lifelong love of horses and spent most of her childhood at the local stables, so this part of our journey has been a real joy. Her natural empathy with the spirit and majesty of these animals allows us to create beautiful images filled with personality and emotion.


Jo and Nic Hansford are based in Bristol, Bath, Somerset and are available to travel nationally and internationally.
