About Me

Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting my website! Professional Photographer

I have truly been captivated by the world of photography since the young age of twelve.  At that time, I was using a Zenith camera, with untold numbers of macros and filters! Now at the age of 43 I own an extensive photography business that specialises in Wedding Photography, Children/Family Portraiture and Commercial Enterprise. About me

Before starting my business, my career was very varied, spanning from sales and retail to graphic design. However I wanted to pursue my true passion of photography. Thus, I began Joanne Collins Photography in 2008. I began by photographing children and families, but my portfolio grew rapidly to incorporate weddings, commercial, fine art and more! Almost all of my work comes from recommendations, which I am happy to say, speaks for itself!  I currently cover many South East Wedding Venues including Eastwell Manor, The Lime Wood Hotel, Leeds Castle and more.  I run my business from my home town in Sittingbourne, Kent.

In my spare time I love spending time with my 3 gorgeous boys, 17 year old twins and a 19 year old.  My eldest, when not participating is some sporting activity is partial to some photography and I am proud to say that he photographed all of my biography pictures for me.  I also love to travel, cook and am currently learning the fine art of golf.

My style embraces mainly reportage photography, with the inclusion of some traditionally set pictures.  However I would say that recording unexpected spontaneous moments and capturing people’s fabulous expressions (which tell a thousand words!!!) generates the most amazing emotions for everyone!

I aim to deliver beautiful, natural and classic photos as well as dramatic, stylised, contemporary portraiture… with both styles reflecting real character and true personality.  What makes my photography unique is my creative use of perspective and space, as well as my ability to work well with you, my client.  I would say that my people skills are just as important as my technical skills and I unite the two to deliver magical, smile evoking pictures for you to treasure forever.

 

This blogsite has been designed, to give you access, to the most up-to-date images and information. Posts are being added regularly so you can return time and time again with new images always on show, so please feel free to peruse the site which is rich with gallery images for you to explore.

So get in touch, I am here to answer all of your questions, to get to know you better, and be the photographer that you have been looking for.

Thank you for reading my biography and I look forward to hearing from you.

 

 

Best wishes, Joanne

    Hi, I have seen an offer on Groupon for a family photo shoot for up to 6 people and was wondering if you do anything similar for 8 please? My wife is expecting our first child imminently and her sister gave birth recently too and we were looking at having the photos done with their parents as part of a present for them. Unless of course the baby’s don’t really count and we can class it as 6!!
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Many thanks.ReplyCancel

    Hi Joanne,

    I’ve just been informed of a Groupon offer currently running for a Family Photo Shoot.

    I was just wondering if pets (Dog) are permitted to be included in the shoot?

    Kind Regards
