Testimonials

My husband and I were referred to Joseph by another professional photographer and we were blown away by his work because of his unique editing style, the use of his colours and the beautiful shots he took.  Once we met him, we knew he was our man and he was an absolute delight to work with. We loved getting to know him at our couples shoot where we discovered how amazing his editing style was and how creative he is! Joseph captured our fabulous Indian/Western wedding weekend with style, grace and showcased all the colours of the event with pure elegance. He is very professional, easy to deal with, down to earth and calmed and relaxed us amongst all the excitement. Thank you Joseph for capturing the most important weekend of our lives!  Our family and friends absolutely love the photos and we will treasure your beautiful photos forever.

Hi Joseph,

We have finally been able to have a look through all your photos now that we are back in Sydney; and we couldn’t be happier with them!

From the moment we met with you a year ago we knew you were  the right man for the job, and we eagerly waited for our wedding  day to come so that you could be a part of it. You were a pleasure  to have around for the whole day, constantly happy and smiling  and making everyone feel at ease with your calm demeanour.  Receiving our photos so soon after our wedding was an added  bonus; and we simply couldn’t be happier with the results.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us something that  we and our families will get a huge amount of joy from for years  to come. 

Thank you again,

Kind Regards,

Kimberley & Sean

Thanks Joseph for all your work and professionalism. We  absolutely love love love the photos.  You are incredibly  talented and we will cherish them forever.  

Everyone should book Joseph for their next event!

Kim & Craig

From the moment Joseph came into my hotel room, I immediately felt at ease as he endeavoured to pick the best lighting for the photo shoot.  He also ensured that all of my personal requests were met.  The Groom was also greeted by the 2nd photographer – he was completely impressed by the professionalism and care given by  Tessa – she was so sensitive to the family’s needs and at the same  time knew when to direct to create a great shot.  I didn’t notice them at all during the ceremony, another testament to their professionalism.

Our location shoot highlighted Joseph’s level of expertise and perfectionism, as he strived to achieve the best angles and lighting for each shot.  Both the groom and I were impressed with the special effect aspects and construction of shots, seemingly at a whim.  Both photographers interacted well with family and friends, getting the shots in a warm, inviting, yet decisive manner. Both myself and Andrew cannot recommend Joseph and his team enough – we will definitely be calling Joe to highlight our future milestones together.

Lucienne and Andrew
 
Thank you so much Joseph – from the bottom of our heart. You have done an incredible job to capture our most special memories they   way you have. The photographs are phenomenal and exactly what  we were after. We especially love the urban vibe you have given to  us through your photos. Thank you for being so patient and nothing was ever too much trouble for you. We love your style and concept  and this is truly shown through the beautiful photos. Our ceremony was so special to us both and we are so happy that we have some beautiful photos that captured every moment. We will be  recommending you to anyone we know that is looking for a photographer – we can’t thank you enough.

Joseph is an amazing photographer! Our photos really capture the happiness and love in the air that day, they are simply beautiful and make us smile every time we look at them… Joseph totally understood what we wanted on the day, he was so calming and I have never seen a man run so fast, across a very windy Watson’s bay to chase my run away veil! He has been so professional and we received our photos in just a weeks time, we can’t wait to see the finished album!

Shelley and Jon
 
Only now have I the time to send you detailed feedback… You absolutely exceeded beyond my expectation! I am so so thrilled with the photographs!  Having you around on the day was like being photographed by a friend.  You made everyone so relaxed (even during horsey ambush!).

I am further impressed by your eye for details, angles and framing shots.  You also did it so quickly!!

I also loved that you were captivated by my grandmother, May. Those shots of her are by far my favourite of the bunch!  Thank you!

I would not hesitate to recommend you to my peers and family.  At my next big event, I will definitely be calling you!

Thank you thank you!

Tenille and Don

We hired Joseph as our wedding photographer in July 2014 and couldn’t be happier with his services. Evidently he is an exceptional photographic talent; his ability to capture candid moments is fantastic, as is his flair for composing more staged shots. What can’t be seen in Joseph’s work is the pleasant experience he creates on the day. On what can be a very stressful and busy occasion, his professional yet relaxed character is very welcome. Joseph didn’t get in the way and we found the whole experience to be very positive. With Joseph I feel you strike that rare balance between exceptional photography and warm, friendly service. Our photos are unlike any we’ve seen elsewhere and are a fitting representation of one of the happiest days of our lives.

Thanks Joseph!

Adam and Paige

Bo and Matt
 
Just received images while still in Hawaii. They are absolutely beautiful!!! You have done such an amazing job and I feel like I am reliving the day when looking at them. You were so good on the day also making everyone feel very comfortable around the camera. I will be telling all of my engaged friends about Sarkodie Photography!!!

Torie and Liam

Joseph is a gifted photographer who has beautiful composition and style. Our wedding photos are breathtaking. Thank you for being such a pleasure and a gifted artist. I would highly recommend you to any person!

Kelly and Brad

Doug and I have been viewing these photos over and over again, dozens and dozens of times. You are so unbelievably talented and I just wanted to say that you have truly made my wedding the fairytale every girl dreams of. These photos are absolutely incredible.

I was wanted to also thank you for being so awesome on the actual day as well, you were so much fun to work with and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. Thank you again and massive hug of thanks.

Caroline and Doug
 
Joseph – we can’t find words … We can’t say thank you enough! I want to jump, scream, cry and sing all in once. Thanks to your incredible talent we can relive and enjoy our wedding again and again. You are the most talented photographer and we are so happy that we had the honour to have you with us in Spain to capture our celebrations! Aaaaaaahhh… And now we are going to look at the pictures again… And again … And again! I have so many favourites! Thank you also for your beautiful words. I am the happiest bride in the world! Love Z

Sarah and Chris Hildebrandt
 
I am sorry I had not mentioned this earlier, time got away… It is crucial you know how your work was received!!!! Every single person that has come into contact with our wedding shots have said they are second to none… They were overwhelmed as to how good the quality was, and believe that your work is far superior to all the high profile agencies in wedding photography (don’t get me wrong, your photography is extraordinary in general). Tashelle at Mira Mandic (my dress) said that it didn’t look typically bridal (that was the inspiration for the day, ‘not typical’) rather something you would find in a high-end magazine!!!!! Speaking of, she will be contacting you regarding some shots…. My family, friends and of course John & myself will be singing your praise and recommending you to everyone! I would describe you as “he is more than a photographer, he is an artist”!!!

Cilla and John Greenwell
 
First of all, I just lurveeeeeeeeeee the photos, they are insanely awesome!!!! Thank you so much for being so amazing! The bounce flash/flashy flash trick you pull photos are incredible. Love, love, LOVE your work Joseph. Thank you so much.

Vanessa and Kane
 
Joseph is amazing! He took our wedding photos in September 2011 and then again recently with our baby photos at Cockatoo Island last July 2013. For both occasions, our photos are artistically beautiful. Joseph has the ability to create the most beautiful and heart-warming photos that tells a story about our family.  You can tell he is a talented photographer as he makes amazing use of lighting and makes the photos look so natural yet professional. We are so blessed to have met Joseph. The beautiful photos he took will have a special place in our home. Thank you Joseph for doing an amazing job. They bring so much happiness to us and to our family. This is not the end…. We will call on you for our next family special occasion.

Thanks so much Jo, they are amazing! So grateful to you for capturing our young family so well, so many memories and feelings are represented and these will be so very special to me for all my life…. Showed my mum and she feels the same!

Vicky and Jo Casey

We are so thrilled with the family photo shoot you did for us recently. We knew you would do a great job having so beautifully captured our wedding two years ago but the quality of your work continues to impress us! We appreciate your flexibility and professionalism in arriving at the location early and scoping out all the good spots so that when we showed up with our 8 month old baby who naturally has a very limited attention (and patience) span, we wasted no time in getting an abundance of gorgeous shots in varied angles and backdrops. The photos are just so stunning and capture our precious little family so naturally, they will be treasured for years to come and we look forward to you doing our next photo shoot with the whole extended family in a few months time! Many thanks,

Fiona, Kieran and baby Luerice

We chose Joseph because he loves what he does and is truly an artist. It was raining on the day that we got married and Joseph still delivered the most amazing photos. He really went above and beyond our expectations and even though we were limited by the weather, he made it work and that’s what was really impressive. His style is very different from the usual wedding photographers and he really gives you a WOW factor in your photos. The hard part is deciding which one we are going to frame because there is so many WOW ones! We are truly grateful to have him on our wedding day.

Jake and Jenny Vanderhoek
 
Joseph was amazing on our wedding day, he made us feel extremely comfortable and ensured that every special moment was captured, particularly the “four seasons in one day” weather we had! Thank you Joseph, I would happily recommend you to anyone who asks!

Chrissy & Nick

When I saw the photos after the wedding I was blown away. They were truly magical, beautiful and the use of light amazing. Not just typical wedding shots but very artistic. I have a keen interest in photography they really did inspire me. They are to date, the best wedding photographs I have seen. Congratulations on achieving your dream!

Bec Jameson
 
I have received and looked at the photos – they’re great and we both love them. Thank you again for being a part of our special day and dealing with all the extended times. You were great in making us feel comfortable and the shots were very natural. We would definitely recommend your service to our friends and family.

Joseph is quite simply what every bride has in mind for a wedding photographer and I would suggest to anyone looking for a wedding photographer to look no further. From the very first correspondence  with Joseph, I found him to be friendly, flexible, quick to respond, highly professional and very easy to deal with. When organising a wedding and with lots of suppliers to deal with, this is a fantastic trait. So from the start I felt that we were in safe hands and I trusted Joseph with documenting our wedding day. Joseph really took one element of stress away from all the planning. All this and I haven’t yet mentioned the photos which were just stunning and captured the essence and emotion of the day beautifully. On the day, Joseph was professional, on time, always there for the important shots but never intrusive or pushy and we could not be more happy with the way the photos turned out. They will really be a source of joy for years to come when we look back on the day. I will also be sure to get in touch with Joseph for family shoots when we have babies!! Thank you Joseph

Fiona and Keiron
 
Joseph is a great photographer. Best of all is his fantastic ability to capture those priceless moments and he really made me feel special on my big day.

Lamia and Mo
 
The pictures are GORGEOUS! Absolutely love them, and everyone I have shown has been blown away. You did an amazing job – thank you!

Heidi and Jon
 
Wow! Joseph is a fantastic photographer – easy-going, friendly and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He totally surpassed my expectations of our wedding photographs – each and every shot is gorgeous and an amazing way to relieve the happy memories of our day. Joseph was flexible, very reasonably priced and got the photos to us very quickly. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I would strongly recommend him to any couple looking for a wedding photographer or a photographer for any occasion. You are a superstar Joseph! Thank you so much for being a part of our
wedding day.

Bron and Rob
 
Joseph is an excellent photographer. He wasn’t pushy and was open to suggestions. The photos turned out beautifully and captured every special moment of the day. I would recommend him to anyone wanting amazing photos of their wedding day.

Janet and Blake
 
Joseph is exceptional! He is professional and easy going. Joseph is extremely hardworking and delivers above and beyond what you could imagine. Our wedding day was a little challenging at times with about 20mm of rain falling in a park with a wet black dog. However Joseph managed to capture some fantastic rain drop and umbrella shots. All photos are edited well and were delivered within a week. I highly recommend Sarkodie Photography to each and everyone of you. Thank you Joseph for your amazing work!

Bridget and Sean
 
Joseph was amazing!! Thank you for prompt replies here and to my emails. You delivered exactly what we had asked for in an efficient manner and now we have wedding shots we’ll love forever! Joseph is professional, punctual, a great communicator and listener and you’ll get great shots at an affordable price. I’d definitely recommend his services!

Jen
 
I definitely recommend Joseph to anyone seeking photography of any kind. Being friendly & professional, he’s able to step out of his comfort zone to deliver some amazing shots no matter what the occasion is. I required promotional photos for my website & promotional materials and he was able to deliver far beyond my expectations. Perfect photos & a perfect photographer. THANKS

Stephen
 
The photos are sensational, thank you!!!!! We are delighted with the photos you took.  Every snap has captured the essence of the day and the utter excitement and bliss we were feeling.

Absolutely amazing!!!!!  The photos are so beautiful… Tom and I are so happy they have come out so brilliant. Thank you very much, they look fantastic. From all the responses, Joseph was a stand out, from his website to his quote… What he quoted is what we got – no hidden catches, or promises. Completely professional and flexible, He understood our vision and delivered… and a quick delivery we got. When we arrived home from our honeymoon (9 days after the wedding) the photo’s were ready and waiting!!! We couldn’t believe the turn around! all photos edited exactly what we had hoped for and absolutely beautiful. Joseph has a natural ability to capture not photos but moments and memories that we will keep with us forever, Thankyou so much Joseph. WE would highly recommend Sarkodie Photography for anyone looking for their wedding, you will not be disappointed.

Tom and Kate
 
We can not recommend Joseph highly enough. Our photos were beautiful and really captured the feel of the day. Joseph was friendly and helpful and took the time to discuss with us the types of images we wanted and delivered them within 2 days of our wedding. Amazing! The photos are great! Thanks again for your hard work – these have been everything we hoped for!

Zoe and Wayne

I recently ran a charity event for around 40 people and had Joseph as our photographer for the evening. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was professional, personable and took some amazing photos! Everyone was really happy with their photos, having some posed or portrait pictures, as well as a few group shots and natural “unposed” pictures. Joseph had a few tricks up his sleeve, producing some great effects with the lighting and the focus in some of the pictures. I would highly recommend using Joseph as your photographer for any event, large or small. His friendly nature combined with his amazing photography skills make Joseph an ideal candidate for your next special event.
