Joshua is a Lake District and Cumbria-based wedding photographer, covering UK and destinations for weddings and elopements, in a contemporary style.
“Hi, I’m Josh. Put simply, I want to create beautifully authentic photography for future generations to enjoy, in a creative and modern way that’s bespoke to you. I’ve been taking photos for a long time; ever since I was knee-high to a tripod and got my shutter finger on my father’s camera. I’m a bit taller now, 6’5”, which gives me a unique perspective on things. I’m also colour blind, so I tend to see things in terms of tone and shade rather than saturation of colour. I can turn my lens to anything, be it commercial, fine art, landscapes or creative wedding photography. I know my ISO from my elbow, and I’ve got the certificates to prove it.”
When I am not officiating at a wedding, handfasting, funeral, naming or other ceremony, I have the privilege of being a companion for the dying (Soul Midwife) and supporting the bereaved in my voluntary role with Hospice at Home in Cumbria. My love of the Lake District and passion for my three Springer Spaniels, has prompted me to include pet funerals in my celebrancy. Recent engagement in a two-year study programme, has further developed my listening skills and understanding of different religions, spirituality, atheism and cultural diversity.
Every ceremony is a unique opportunity to celebrate life, to express our thoughts, feelings and emotions. Be assured, the unique and heartfelt ceremony we create together, will truly reflect your preferences, wishes and aspirations, initiating a lasting and beautiful memory.
