Kind Words

Our business has a huge bias towards recommendation, which is the most lovely way to work. Often we see couples as guests at a friend’s wedding and guests that later become our couples. It’s easy for us to write about why we might be the best wedding photographers for you, but it’s much more important that you hear it from couples like yourselves who have already worked with us. Here are some very kind words:


First Dance Essex wedding“Choosing your wedding photographer is a huge decision – especially as it will be the record of your day for years to come.  We had been to many wedding fairs in the lead up to our big day, and had spoken to a plethora of photographers.    However, none of those we spoke to seemed right for us.    We either didn’t like their work or they didn’t make us feel at ease.  Then someone recommended Jo at Studio Rochford to us.  We went to see her, and we knew immediately that she was the right person for the job.  We loved her style of photography, and she took time to find out about us, and what we were looking for.  Nearer to the wedding we had a further meeting and Jo took down all the details of our family members, and how things were going to run.


We could not recommend Jo highly enough.  You spend a large part of your day with your chosen photographer, and we can honestly say that Jo was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was not intrusive, but the photos she managed to get were amazing!  So many people commented on how efficient she was.  She directed people so clearly, which was essential for us as we were up against some difficult weather conditions!  We are thrilled with the end result and when we first saw the photos they actually gave us goosebumps! We will be recommending Jo to anyone requiring a photographer, and in fact have already done so to several of our friends.”

Bride in Essex wedding car“I couldn’t speak more highly about our experience with Studio Rochford; from our initial enquiry through to choosing our photos for our wedding album everything was so professional and friendly. Jo offered to do an engagement shoot, which was something special to do before the big day. We went to Shoebury beach and had a very fun few hours having photos by the beach huts, along the water and sand dunes – I came away buzzing as it was so clear that Jo was a complete pro at what she does, and was very passionate about getting the right photos for us. This didn’t change on the wedding day, Jo’s calm influence during the bridal preparations was amazing, and she just kept snapping away not missing a thing. One clear memory was during our photos we felt a spot of rain, and Jo sprinted across the grass to fetch us an umbrella, special touches like that really make a difference. A big thank you Jo.”

Bride at Palace Hotel Southend Essex

“Jo and Sally were simply marvellous! From the very first meeting until the final album was a pleasure. I would definitely recommend them to any brides to be.”

Orsett Essex Church Wedding“We wanted a photographer who was really able to capture the feeling of the day. Jo did just that and more!  She also proved invaluable when I was having last minute problems with my dress – I literally wouldn’t have been able to walk up the aisle without her.”


~ Imogen & Aidan Ellis, The Lawn Wedding, April





Leez Priory wedding“You caught the feel of the wedding perfectly, we were blessed with the weather and the effort you took into capturing the most stunning pictures of the venue and capturing moments that we can treasure forever, we can not thank you enough.”


~ Laura & Ben Poxon, Leez Priory Wedding, September





Hylands House Chelmsford wedding

“We found Studio Rochford at the wedding fayre at Hylands House and they did an exceptional job.  It’s amazing for me to get a picture with my eyes actually open and I was really delighted with our final album.  Jo did a fantastic job on the day and went above and beyond, she helped co-ordinate the wedding party and helped with everyone’s buttonholes.  After being to a few weddings and witnessing a few photographers both Richard and I knew that we had made the right choice with Studio Rochford.”


~ Nicola & Richard Pointer, Hylands House Wedding, August



Boreham House Chelmsford wedding“We had been recommended by many friends that you were the place to go to and we were absolutely not disappointed!! From the moment we spoke to Jo, she was so friendly and so easy to get on with. We felt really at ease and felt we could say whatever we felt.  Jo again managed to squeeze us in to her schedule without a blink and we knew it was then meant to be! On the day, Jo took complete control and got some AMAZING shots!! The one thing we were concerned about was not having a videographer.  We were concerned that certain parts of the day might be missed… but that was not the case!! Jo captured every single part of the day and as I look back through all of my photographs, every photo tells the complete story of the day, not one part was missed!! Thank you so much Jo!! xxx”


~ Victoria & David Stock, Boreham House Wedding, August



Bridal Party The Lawn Essex“Studio Rochford was definitely the right photographer for us. They had done the wedding photos for both my sister-in-law and a work colleague, so I’d met Jo before and seen the fantastic photos they take. Because Jo and Sally were so organised we got the photos done quickly which meant we could spend time talking to the guests. The photos that they took were all so lovely it made it very difficult to narrow them down to fit into the album. ”
