THE PHOTOGRAPHY WAS SO FUN AND RELAXED!

Cripps Barn wedding photographer Jo Hansford

Dee & Ben, Cripps Barn, Cotswolds

Jo and Nic know us so well, they really captured us as a couple. We never felt staged, the photography was always so fun and relaxed. One of the things I love about Jo is her carefree nature, which is much like me, we will always give things a go.

I think thats what enables Jo and Nic as a team to capture great photographs. Its very chilled and fun and that really comes through in the photographs.

BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES

Lois & Dave

I would 100% recommend an equine photoshoot with Jo and Nic. They work really well together as a team to create the best possible shots, and they’ve managed to capture some beautiful memories that I will always look back at with a smile. The whole experience from preparing for the shoot to viewing the finished photos was fabulous!

BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS

April with Robin & Ditto

I had heard amazing things about Jo and Nic, but they went way beyond my expectations. Jo and Nic came out in the summer for a photo shoot with my two horses, Robin & Ditto. They got some of the most AMAZING shots and it was so so hard to choose which ones we wanted for my album and walls.Jo and Nic are so, so passionate about what they do and went the extra mile to make our experience amazing, they are both horse lovers so really understand what shots people want! Couldn’t recommend enough!

WE ARE SO GRATEFUL THAT THEY CAPTURED SUCH WONDERFUL MEMORIES

JO & BEN, WHATLEY MANOR, EASTON GREY

Jo and Nic were an absolute pleasure to work with on our Wedding Day! From the planning and preparation leading up to the day, to the big day itself, we couldn’t have asked for more. The professionalism and commitment that both Jo and Nic showed throughout was impeccable. They captured our day wonderfully, from beginning to end. Capturing both formal and informal shots, which portrayed the story of our day perfectly. I couldn’t recommend a nicer, more friendly couple and we are so grateful that they captured such wonderful memories for us. Memories that we will treasure forever.

ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SMILE AND ENJOY TIME WITH MY GORGEOUS PONY!

 

 

SIMONE & ARQUEIRO

I have such fabulous photos and a couple of beautiful canvasses too from the very talented Jo and Nic. I was the very lucky winner of the photo shoot from the IPS in August 2018. Jo and Nic made the afternoon so much fun and very relaxed, all I had to do was smile and enjoy time with my gorgeous pony!

What really impressed me was the canvass of my dog Nelly. Being a black dog I always find it hard to take a good photo of her but it is amazing, It captures her personality to perfection and her eyes even follow me around the room!!! Thank you again love Simone and Arqueiro xx

WE SO ENJOYED THE EXPERIENCE ON THE DAY OF THE SHOOT!

 

 

 

RACHEL & HAYLEY WITH HORSES WIZARD & JAMES

A huge thank you to Jo and Nic for the amazing photos they took of our horses, they were able to capture such fantastic shots of our horses both static and on the move. So much so that it was hard to choose our favourites after the shoot!We so enjoyed the whole experience on the day of the shoot and are delighted with the resulting photographs.

We will be returning for more in the future !!!

ONE OF THE BEST ‘HORSEY’ DAYS WE HAVE SPENT TOGETHER AS MUM AND DAUGHTER

 

Sophie with her horses Dani, Murray Mint and Clover

We were so thrilled with the photos and the album is a coffee table favourite!

But the best thing was the day – those memories will live with us for a long time – all the horses at home and the wonderful setting of Westonbirt for Dani – it was one of the best ‘horsey’ days we have spent together as Mum and daughter and one we will never forget. Then for you guys to use the shot of Sophie and Murray Mint for your Xmas card and for us to use the Dani shot in the Westonbirt cloisters for ours – well that was just the icing on the cake!!!

WE’RE SIMPLY IN AWE OF THE IMAGES

 

The Redhouse family & horses, Sevenoaks, Kent.

Wow; we are simply in awe of the images Jo and Nic managed to capture of our family, human and equine, during our photoshoot. They are a delight to work with, they were unbelievably patient during costume changes and perhaps most importantly for us, they have a real empathy with horses, and managed to capture each of the ponies characters.

We are so pleased with the results that Jo & Nic’s very long road trip to us from Bristol is likely to become an annual occurrence!

THEY PERFECTLY CAPTURED THE FEELING OF OUR DAY!

Claire & Nathan, Homewood Park

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!

LIFELONG MEMORIES OF MY SPECIAL BOY

Skye & Louey

I had seen and loved Jo’s photos of various friends with their horses, and had wanted to do something really special for my daughter Skye’s 13th birthday.

Not only was the shoot very professional, stress free and an amazing experience – the photos are truly wonderful and we will treasure them always. We have a stunning set of photos and beautiful memories.

Thank you Jo & Nic! X

LIFELONG MEMORIES OF MY SPECIAL BOY

Catherine & Pit

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

BROUGHT A TEAR TO OUR EYE

Kelly & Andrew, Lower Slaughter Manor, Cotswolds

Andrew and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you. The album is amazing and we love it, brought a tear to our eye reminiscing on the day. I know we have said it before but we loved working with you and are grateful for your passion and the big role you played in the preparation and on the day. We can’t wait for baby Chantrell to come along now to organise another shoot with you.

YOU ARE BOTH BRILL!

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! We will treasure them.

Lucy & Marek, The Bath Priory

AN OCCASION NEVER TO FORGET

Jess with Tockas and Joey

My photo shoot with Jo and Nick was an occasion never to forget. I was given the equestrian shoot as a Christmas present as I was having to sell my beloved pony Tockas. I had a lovely afternoon with lots of fun photographing Tockas and my new horse Joey. I felt so comfortable in their presence and the outcome was amazing! All the photos that were taken were brilliant and really managed to capture the horses’ characters and my relationship with them. I can’t thank them enough and would recommend it to anyone!

THE PHOTOGRAPHS WRITE TO STORY OF OUR DAY

Bea & Jonathan, Whatley Manor, Easton Grey

Jo and Nic really captured this atmosphere of our wedding day in their photographs. When watching them, you can feel the intense feelings we felt during the wedding: deep joy, cries of happiness, genuine laughter, true love. Their photographs write the story of our wedding day: a perfect day.

SUCH A CALMING INFLUENCE

Jess & Pete, Whatley Manor, Easton Grey

We are so incredibly grateful to Jo and Nic for the wonderful photographs they captured on our wedding day – they did such an incredible job and we feel very lucky to have had them as part of our day. Over a 10 month period following our engagement, they spent so much time getting to know us, the details of the wedding and how the photographs would reflect this. Jo and Nic were so friendly and went above and beyond anything we ever expected. Their passion for what they do clearly showed in all the time they spent with us beforehand – whether it was over the phone, on email or meeting at the venue – and at our photo viewing in the months following our wedding.

By the time our wedding day came around, they fitted right in and were such a calming influence – it was hard to tell they were even photographing! As a couple who don’t particularly like being photographed or had any idea of what we wanted our photographs to look like, words cannot express how happy we are with the photos. Jo and Nic made us feel so comfortable on the day – from the nervous moments before walking down the aisle, to our first look at each other at the end of it and through all the tears and laughs that followed. They truly captured everything the day meant to us and all the special moments between us and our families.

We cannot recommend Jo and Nic highly enough – it was so refreshing to have such kind, warm people who weren’t just ‘doing their job’ but helping us through all the planning leading up to our wedding and on the day to produce the most beautiful, genuine memories. Thank you both so much!

WE KNEW WE WERE IN GREAT HANDS!

Alison & Rupert, The In And Out Club, St James’, London

Jo and Nic were everything that we hoped for in wedding photographers! Right from the initial ‘getting to know you’ call we knew we were in great hands. Jo was meticulous in finding out all the details in advance so they knew who everyone was in the wedding party and what was most important to us to capture throughout the day. Jo and Nic were fun to work with, and were so delightful that even the most camera shy guests enjoyed being photographed! Our wedding photos and album will be treasured and over the years we hope to add some family, dog and horse photos to our lovely collection of Jo Hansford photos! Alison & Rupert

OUR ALBUM IS JUST AMAZING

Jo & Matt, Coombe Lodge, Blagdon

Thank you so much both of you for doing such a fantastic job of photographing our wedding day. You managed to capture the day so perfectly! You were both great during the lead up to and planning, and on the day itself. Our album is just amazing and we now have a memory which we will treasure for a lifetime!

TRULY AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS!

Natasha Baker 2016 Jo Hansford

Natasha Baker MBE, para dressage rider

Jo & Nic are truly amazing photographers!

I love that I now have such an amazing collection of pictures (and album) to look back on, of myself with JP, now that he’s no longer with us – so many special memories we will treasure forever.

Jo & Nic know just how to put you 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!

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

Jo with Adam & Clara

Jo photographed my wedding back in 2006. Fast forward ten years and I now have a 5 year old and a 3 year old, & I wanted some amazing photos of my precious kids at this age, as they change so fast. I knew that Jo was the person to do this!

It’s not an easy job photographing young kids who are camera shy, but Jo made it a fun, enjoyable and energetic day. The photos are so stunning and exceeded expectations.

I now have some beautiful images of Adam and Clara that our family will treasure for ever. Thank you so so much!

OUR PHOTOS, ALBUMS AND FRAMES ARE AMAZING!

Kelly & Andrew, Lower Slaughter

Our photos, album and frames are amazing! Thank you so much for everything. It was tremendous to receive them all just before Christmas, a great start to the family celebrations

UTTERLY THRILLED

Clare & Chris, Llansantfraed Court, MONMOUTHSHIRE

We can’t tell you how utterly thrilled we were when we first saw all our wedding photographs! You & Nic really managed to capture the atmosphere and special moments of our day, and most importantly made us look good! What was so great was that on the day itself you didn’t intrude, so we were able to spend so much time with our friends and family without missing out on having fabulous pictures. We will treasure them forever! XX

BEAUTIFULLY COMPOSED IMAGES FULL OF DRAMA

Horse photographer Cotswolds Jo Hansford

India & Connor

Where do I begin? If you can’t afford a Munnings or Stubbs but would love to own an original piece of art then look no further than Jo Hansford Photography. We felt like children in a sweet shop trying to decide which style to go with when looking through Jo and Nic’s portfolio of stunning shots. We opted for a photo set at dusk. The British weather didn’t disappoint and the clouds rolled in and the gale blew full force which made the shoot interesting to say the least. Jo and Nic remained calm and worked their magic. What could have been a nightmare with a cold child looking like the bearded lady ended with big smiles and beautifully composed images full of drama that would rival the Old Masters.

We love our photos so much that we have already booked another shoot! Thank you Jo and Nic xx

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE PHOTOGRAPHS

Horse photographer Bath Jo Hansford

Julie & Beana

I absolutely love the photos of my boy Beana.  They’re stunning and exactly what I was looking for.  

 I finally took the plunge and booked a shoot having first seen Jo and Nic at Badminton a few years ago and I’m so glad I did.  It took three attempts due to the vagaries of the great British weather but we finally got there, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results!  The whole process was very relaxed from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble – from discussing the type of pictures I was looking for beforehand, to being flexible in re-arranging dates and putting me at ease on the day.  And I have to mention extreme patience in allowing me time to decide which photos to pick – just too many lovely shots to choose from!

I now have a fabulous set of pictures that I will treasure forever. Thank you so  much! xx 

 

SUCH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS TO TREASURE!

Horse photographer Gloucestershire Jo Hansford

Maisie with Big G and Bear

I had so much fun on our shoot evening, and I’m so so happy to have such beautiful photos to treasure of my boys! I’ve always wanted photos like these to show the love between my horses and I will cherish them – I’m so grateful to Jo and Nic for capturing them.

 I didn’t realise at the time but these keepsakes have become even more special now as G had a career ending injury and is now retired. I can’t think of a better way to have memories to cherish!

 

 A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY

Young Sponsored rider Laura with Lyon

I am so grateful to have been part of the Young Sponsored Rider Programme for 2019, and to have met so many amazing people in the process! Not only was it just awesome to have the photoshoot, the mentoring and not to mention the super smart branded kit, but I really value the support that Jo and Nic constantly show for myself and Lyon, throughout the bad and good days.

I would definitely urge anyone to enter the future sponsorship searches as it is such a fantastic opportunity.

 

WE WERE ECSTATIC WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHS!

Great Tythe Barn wedding Jo Hansford

Kat & Gavin, Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

We were ecstatic with our photographs! They captured every part of the day, and the guidance throughout the day brilliant.

We’re recommending you to everyone!

 

YOU TRULY CAPTURED WHAT WE WERE AFTER

Lindsey & Nick, Leigh Court, Bristol

Thank you for sending all our wedding photos, we spent lots of time over Christmas looking through them and there are just so many we love! They will be cherished for many years to come. You have really captured what we were after, without us even really knowing at the outset what we were after. It didn’t feel at all like we spent the wedding taking photos, yet you have captured so many different shots of Nic and I, and so many of the amazing little moments!

Thanks again, we are truly delighted.

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE

Anne & Rolo

Hiring a professional photographer is obviously for something very important and precious to the client,  and so trust in the photographer is absolutely vital. Jo did not impose her views but listened carefully to what I had in mind and we had a full discussion. Any apprehension I had about the shoot was quickly dispersed when I saw how decisively and efficiently Jo and Nick work. I felt I could trust them completely and their careful preparation paid off as the shoot went smoothly,  with Rolo remaining a calm and happy model – in fact I suspect he is considering a career change!
The resulting photographs brought a tear to my eye as Jo has somehow captured who he is. It was very difficult to choose favourites but I now have an album to treasure and a fabulous framed photograph on the wall.
A sincere thank you to Jo and Nick, not only for their high quality work but also for a wonderful experience.

AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

Helen & Amelia with horse and pony, Watson and Hercules

What an amazing experience! both our photo shoots had a touch of magic to them. Jo and Nick made us all feel very special making the day one we will never forget.

MY WEDDING PICTURES ARE FANTASTIC

Lauren & James, Rookery Manor, Somerset

Jo and Nic were absolutely amazing. They came highly recommended to me and they definitely lived up to the expectations. They were brilliant on the day with amazing results. Jo and Nic 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 have imagined. 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!

THEIR WORK IS OUTSTANDING

The McInnes family

Jo and Nic 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

YOU TOTALLY “GOT” US

Sophie & Kevin, the Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Right from the get-go we loved working with you Jo and Nic! You made us feel so comfortable – you had excellent ideas for creative but stylish pictures and you delivered a wonderful set of engagement and wedding photos that we could not be more thrilled with! Above all you’ve been amazing fun, diligent and responsive to all our needs! You totally “got” us and didn’t try to mould us into something we’re not. I hope we have the opportunity to work with you again, thank you for everything

THE PHOTOS ARE AMAZING

Jess & George, the Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

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!

A GREAT AFTERNOON AND PICTURES TO TREASURE!

Grace & Freya with their ponies Yogi Bear, Poker & Lily

My two daughters, Freya and Grace had a fantastic afternoon with Jo and Nic and their 3 ponies and dogs! It was very professionally done yet fun all the same, Jo and Nic were very patient spending time with children and animals and the results were fantastic.

A great afternoon and pictures to treasure!
