Capture Your Wedding Story

Joel Penn Photography


authentic. cinematic. Personal.

"Absolutely stunning photographs which perfectly capture the moments and the very happy atmosphere on this special occasion. Going through them now is like reliving the day and my cheeks once more hurt from smiling!!"

I believe wedding photography should tell a story through beautiful pictures. As an experienced cameraman I have an eye for narrative. I won't keep your guests waiting while your wedding day turns into a photo-shoot. What I will do is find charming and impromptu moments. 

My style is natural (no awkward poses or forced smiles!) and observational. I’ll capture the emotion, the drama and the details – all the elements that make your wedding day unique.

About Me

about image
Photography has been part of my life for over twenty years and for me, there is no better feeling than knowing I've captured a moment that you will treasure forever.

I'd describe my style as documentary wedding photography. It’s my responsibility to record your day and the moments that make it special. Of course we can take time for a few formal family photographs – but I promise to keep it natural and fun!

During your wedding day I like to get involved and put you and your guests at ease. It's this relaxed atmosphere that helps me create the natural photography that has become my signature style.

Kind Words

Just to say we received the package a few days ago and we’ve been too busy showing the pictures off that I’ve not had time to reply! We are absolutely over the moon with the quality of your pictures and we can’t believe you managed to capture so many beautiful moments during the day.  We love the slideshow and the little concertina books were a lovely surprise! We would like to say a big thank you once again for cutting short your family holiday to photograph our wedding, and for doing such a marvellous job.

I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and Owen and all of our guests that you were absolutely fantastic we all adore the photographs we have received and they will serve as a fantastic reminder of the day for everybody. We love how you where able to catch moments that we otherwise would never have seen and literally all our guests have remarked at how friendly and professional you were, we certainly wouldn't even consider recommending anybody else to our friends and family we know you where perfect for our wedding from our first meeting over coffee! Should we need any professional photography in the future we wouldn't hesitate contacting you again!
Sinead & Owen
Thank you very much for all the time and care you put into the photography and album design for our special day. We are made up with the final result and will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

"It was such a pleasure to have Joel as our wedding photographer! He put us at ease instantly by communicating and updating us throughout the whole process making sure we were 100% satisfied and happy at all times. He would go the extra mile working very hard together with us to fit in all the things that we envisioned for our day and we were not let down. He captured a truly spectacular day whilst making it feel relaxed and natural. We and our guests loved how personable he was, never intrusive and just slipped into the background working his magic to photograph our beautiful moments. We would highly recommend letting Joel be your photographer for any of those special moments you wish to remember, you will not be disappointed, we were so lucky to have him and appreciated how far he travelled to help be a part of making our day a dream come true.”
