Bristol Wedding Photographer Joab Smith


I’m Joab, a Bristol based Wedding Photographer (of around 10 years now) loving living in the South West.

I love blending in and shooting in a natural way to provide a beautifully told record of your day; you create the memories and I’ll capture them! Most of all I love real moments of emotion, fun and beauty. I’ll be in the background and unless I’m talking to you feel free to ignore me, enjoy yourselves!


Pricing starts from £1700 and discounts for winter or midweek weddings are often available. If you’re planning a destination wedding or elopement I keep costs down and would be happy to do a tailored quote.

Whether you’re getting married in your garden in Bristol or a cave in Peru I’d love to hear from you, get in touch and tell me about your day!

Me & You

After 10 years as a Bristol wedding photographer I couldn’t love my job more, but most importantly YOU need to have the best day possible. That means just letting you celebrate for the most part! I’ll organise groups when necessary but be out of the way most of the time.

You won’t need to think about a thing.

If you think I’d be a good fit for your day I’d love to hear about you and your plans.
Get in touch below and hopefully we can get excited about your wedding over a coffee sometime soon.


Some of my favourite things

Listening to loud music on a sunny Sunday morning

Ties on heads by the end of a wedding.


Some of my favourite wedding venues

I regularly photograph at Euridge Manor (which is also called The Lost Orangery), Coombe Lodge, Orchardleigh House and Grittleton House and they’re all absolutely fantastic, I can’t fault them.

Similarly The Square Club in Bristol, Priston Mill near Bath, The Painswick in the Cotswolds are some of the best venues in the Bristol area. I actually have a blog including the best wedding venues in and around Bristol here.

For destination weddings I love Villa Eva in the hills of Ravello, Italy, and The Abbey of San Galgano in Tuscany is just mind blowing.


What I enjoy most on a wedding day

The morning atmosphere of excited apprehension, because the more nervous the better!

The burst of confetti after the ceremony, you’re married!!! The nerves melt away and it’s time to celebrate.

The speeches – because the more tears and face palms the better.

The first dance and party. Starting with a slow dance and ending with
ties on heads/ripped trousers/grandma pulling shapes.
