Kind Words

Here are some fabulous words from a few of our clients.



Jo Hansford Photography Weddings

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!”

“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!”

“We don’t know where to start really, from the engagement shoot to the wedding Jo & Nic have been sensational! I think the biggest praise is from my father, a French lawyer, compliments don’t come easily from him, he was so impressed and all 200 of our guests have said how wonderful Jo & Nic were on the day!

Mother of the Bride:
“Thank you so much for this wonderful record of our day. You captured all that was going on beautifully and the joy and happiness radiates from every single photo. You really are extremely talented and we are very lucky to have been able to have you as our photographer.
I have just shown Pascal the gallery and he was visibly moved by many of the photos.
Again, bravo and heartfelt thanks”

Pippa & Chris, Brympton House, Brympton d’Avery, October 2013
“The photos just look fantastic! They bring back such happy memories and they really capture the day, thank you so much!”


kindwords_Debbie&greyhounds

Debbie with her greyhounds Eddie & Leah, Bristol, April 2013
“The photos are beautiful! I didn’t know what to expect from the shoot with Jo and Nic. I’d seen other static studio portraits of dogs and hadn’t been that sold on them. What a revelation! The shoot started off at our house, where our very lazy but quite suspicious greyhounds got used to the cameras. The first shots were taken with the dogs on their favourite sofa – as they were so relaxed, the pictures are stunning and really show their true characters. After a few more in the house, we went to the park (not forgetting the important collar changes for variety!) and Jo and Nic brilliantly managed to capture the beauty of a very fast-moving greyhound. Jo tells me they approached the shoot as they would a toddler portrait; keeping it low-key, fast-paced and interesting for the subject. I know we wouldn’t have got anything like these results had I taken the dogs to a studio. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”



kindwords_Savage family

The Savage family shoot, Weston, February 2013
Jan, grandmother:
“After taking the beautiful photos of both the couples weddings then the grandchildren as babies I was so pleased to have these for my special birthday and for you to have taken them. You are both superb photographers and i can tell by the photos you love your job. Many thanks Jan.”



kindwords_Annie&Steve

Annie & Steven with Hettie, November 2012

I think you have just got yourself another shoot with us next year when she is walking and a little older :O) I particularly love the two black and white shots of her, and the one in the suitcase! Just lovely!”



kindwords_GemmaJames

Gemma & James, Priston Mill, Bath, June 2013
“I just want to say a really big thank you for being such a fantastic duo, you really have been a joy throughout the whole process of our wedding. We knew from the moment we came to see you that you were the photographers for us, and the way you have supported and helped us through the build up, the day and afterwards has really overwhelmed us. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone.”



kindwords_VicGeorge

Victoria & George, Witham Friary, Somerset, June 2012
“Thank you sooo much Jo and Nic. It was a wonderful day and we’re delighted that you captured it so well! Who knew that the wind tugging at my veil could make for such a great photo! And you even managed to find some blue sky in the church shot! “



kindwords_Aimie&Robbie

Aimie & Robbie, Peterstone Court, Brecon, October 2008
“A massive thank you for all the work you put into our wonderful wedding photos, and everything you have done for us! We love our beautiful photographs and our album and probably spend far too much time looking at it!



kindwords_Kate&Paul

Kate & Paul, Mill on the Brue, Somerset, September 2009
Paul & I were so lucky that you were recommended to us when we started this journey of planning our wedding. All the planning was worth it as on the day we were surrounded by professionals who made our dreams come true, you and Nic were a major part of that!

For me finding the right photographer was hugely important, and I knew I had found someone exceptional in you. Our photographs are fabulous, and show more than your technical skills and artistry, your natural warmth made even the most camera shy relax and you have really captured our friends as we know them, not just their “photo faces”. You put a lot of time and energy into our day, and the planning, and you still have the enthusiasm that I would expect from someone new to the industry, yet the knowledge and experience to produce stunning photographs that only a seasoned pro could achieve. Thank you for the beautiful photographs.

kindwords_Eli&Tim

Eli & Tim, Hotel du Vin, Bristol, December 2012
Thank you so much for helping us to make our wedding day so amazing! As two people who have always found it a challenge to find a photo we both like, it was wonderful to feel so comfortable with you taking pictures of us. From our first meeting with you we both knew that you were right for us, your sense of fun and calm manner put us both at ease and meant on the day it was easy. Once again thank you so much!
Mother of the bride

Mother of the bride:
“Jo, I so agree with Sally’s comments, the photos far exceeded our expectations, and really captured the spirit of the day – my beautiful daughter, her handsome bridegroom, and everyone being so happy. I can’t wait to see the whole album and will have a really, really difficult job choosing some for myself!
