Love Letters Words that feed my soul ~ feedback from my clients
Rachael & Grant
Straight from the first time we met Larissa and saw her work we knew she was the photographer for us – we even booked Larissa before our actual venue! From the start we had great communication and this also helped us with other aspects of our wedding day that meant that on the day we didn’t have to worry too much about how the day ran. Larissa got all the photos we wanted and more and we now have so many beautiful photos of our day that we can print out and keep forever. Thank you so much for everything!
Ceri & Dougal
Larissa is the woman you want capturing your wedding – her approach is professional and informed, her work absolutely beautiful and she managed somehow to capture a true memory of exactly what the day looked and felt like. We really valued Larissa’s friendly approach and the efforts she made to do such a great job for us and the investment we made in our wedding photography.
We absolutely loved every one of our photographs and all our friends and family have commented both on how beautiful they are – how well they capture people’s memories of the day but also what a great job Larissa did – fitting in, going with the flow and quietly going about her job based on what we discussed with her. Larissa was really friendly, easy to talk to and help us be clear (and get clarity with her) about how to approach photography for the day. We decided to book Larissa based on her existing portfolio of work which offered the aesthetic we both love. There is something warm and realistic about her work.
Mel & Alex
We really enjoyed working with Larissa to capture our wedding day. We wanted lots of natural, ‘in the moment’ pictures and we feel really pleased that we have a fantastic selection from across the day. Not only is Larissa a great photographer, but she also offers a great pre and post wedding service. We received a really informative welcome pack once we confirmed the booking. We also got a lovely gift after the wedding, which has pride of place in our living room!
Sammi & Greg
An old school peer used Larissa to photograph their wedding and I was obsessed with her work immediately! The reportage format, the creativity, the informality and warmth that shone through them was exactly what we wanted for our wedding photos. Larissa was thorough and organised. My two favourite traits in a person! She got us to consider things we hadn’t thought of and even gave us a checklist for things to remember to pack like nice hangers for dresses. We got brilliant service from Larissa and couldn’t be more in love with our photos. They are so great – so much joy, emotion and hilarity captured in every photo. We’ll treasure the memories forever.
Clare & Matthew
After looking through the wedding galleries on your website we knew immediately that we had to book you as our wedding photographer. No words can describe how talented you are, we couldn’t be more pleased with our photographs. You captured so many special moments and this is something we will treasure forever. During our wedding planning we chatted to you via Skype and put us at ease straight away, it meant that on the day we were more relaxed and this certainly came through on our photos. It wasn’t long after the wedding that we were told our wedding gallery was available to view. We were so excited to see them after being tortured by the ‘sneak peek’ photographs which always left us eager to see more! You certainly did not disappoint… we now have so many lovely wedding photos that makes it impossible for us to choose a favourite. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a top-class Wedding photographer.
Thank you Larissa! Love Clare & Matthew xx
Rebecca & Ryan
We’d decided to book Larissa after seeing her photography online. There is something so beautiful and light in Larissa’s photography, every image has an ethereal quality that we knew we wanted for our wedding photographs. The photographs she took for us are completely gorgeous and we love every single one; the personalised photo box is a lovely keepsake and we’re so glad we opted for it. It was honestly so easy to work with Larissa, she has seemingly unending patience and a warm and inviting personality. We were all quite anxious about having our photographs taken as there were so few of us there it would have been easy to feel like we were under a microscope. However, Larissa made it so natural that half the time we forgot that she was there as a our photographer instead of a guest. We would recommend Larissa to anyone searching for a high quality photographer who is also a joy to work with. Thank you Larissa, for helping to make our day as delightful as it was.
Owain & Heather
Larissa was excellent throughout the whole process, from booking to receiving our photographs. Her style was what we were looking for and her prices for the quality of her work are excellent! She was there for the whole day and as a result we have great photos of all the different parts which made the wedding day what it. She takes a lot of time and effort to get to know you, the style of wedding and family/friends to help capture the day to reflect you. She put us at ease throughout and her professionalism and bubbly, humorous personality helped. The best part was that all of our guests commented on how wonderful Larissa was and that they felt she did a brilliant job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional photographer whatever the occasion!
James & Kristie
We couldn’t have asked for more when we booked Larissa to be our wedding photographer, From the first time we met (albeit over Skype) we felt comfortable with Larissa and we knew that we were in safe hands. She was attentive in the run up to our big day and was always checking in to see how things were going, we never knew we\’d get such a personal touch in this side of our wedding. On the day, things couldn’t have been better. Larissa was a dream to work with and so many people commented as such to us afterwards. She managed to keep the both of us at ease throughout the day whilst managing our friends and family into being where they needed to be, The photos from Larissa are simply breathtaking, she captures much more than just a photograph, she brings the scene to life. Looking back through our pictures we feel like we are reliving the day all over again and we cannot thank Larissa enough for this. She was perfect from start to finish and we would recommend her over and over again,
Thank you so much Larissa, for everything, James & Kristie xx
Louise & Andrew
Feedback – Thank you so much Larissa for photographing our wedding day. You took so much time to get to know Andrew and I and understand exactly what we were looking for form our wedding photos. You helped us to work through the logistics of the day and organise who needed to be were and at what time.This helped us no end with our planning! The photos themselves are beautiful and I love how much laughter you managed to capture. You documented our day beautifully and we will treasure our photographs forever. I really recommend Larissa to anyone looking for creative and atmospheric images of their wedding day.
Review – Our photographer Larissa was great to work with. She was so organised and when we were planning the wedding she really helped us to think through the logistics of the day. I love the wintery mood that she managed to capture in the photos, and the way she used the scenery and buildings at River Cottage for different photographs. It was quite an overcast day which actually looks beautiful in the photographs, but at one point the sun poked out from behind the clouds and Larissa dragged Andrew and I round to the side of the farmhouse to capture the beautiful light.
Becky & Blaine
We absolutely loved working with Larissa. She took two very camera shy people and managed to make us feel completely at ease. She was happy to answer all of our questions and she gave us really fun, creative, beautiful photographs that we’ll treasure forever.

Larissa was wonderful on our wedding day but even more importantl
Liberty & Elliott
Liberty & Elliott wrote me this beautiful letter even before they had received their wedding photographs. I am so totally blessed to work with such awesome clients.
We have sat down to write this letter several times but it is so hard to find the exact words to merit how much we are so grateful to have found such a wonderful photographer to capture our wedding.
As soon as we met you we loved you, you were so friendly and you felt like part of the family rather than our photographer,. You are the most loveliest, kindest, heartwarming soul. Straight away we felt at ease with you. On the morning of our wedding you were so calm and wise, you knew what the plan was and were prepared for everything.
You were bossy but in a brilliant way so we were able to get the formal photographs done smoothly and fast so the we could enjoy the rest of the day. Even when we decided to take an impromptu break from the day after the ceremony you were so on the ball that you knew exactly where we were going and had the initiative to follow. It was so wonderful to have that break at the base of that mountain looking out to sea. Wales is where our hearts are forever and always. Our wedding was such a beautiful overwhelming emotional day, which by your sneak peek of photos, we know you will have captured in such a special way we cannot wait to relive the day again through your photos.
Since the wedding all our friends and family have been talking about you, how brilliant you were, how you were everywhere all the time, how you were so lovely, everyone adored you.
We will always remember you with a true fondness and in the future when we have our own family we would love to be reunited with you for a life in the day of session, to capture the next stage of our life. We will definitely be telling our children, how you calmly rescued a sheep and how you laid down in the road as we drove away to catch that perfect shot. Our very own amazing action photographer. …
Thank you Larissa
Liberty & Elliott”
Hannah & Gareth
One of our worries was that (photography) it would impose on parts of the day, we are happy to say that this wasn’t the case. You were so understanding that we only wanted to leave for short periods of time throughout the day, in fact this worked really well in regard to us having plenty of time with our guests and also that we ‘caught the light’ throughout the day…. Larissa was professional and organised from the off set and listened to what we wanted. Prior to the wedding she put us at ease through catch ups and asking how the planning was going. We both find it difficult having our photo taken, Larissa guided us without being pushy to get beautiful natural looking shots. Thank you again for the beautiful images, we will cherish them for years to come. Hannah & Gareth
Camellia & Fabien
Larissa, when we saw Ana & Rob’s wedding photos, Fabien and I decided very quickly (even before we started planning our wedding) that you were going to be our photographer. Your photos come to life, they silence mortal beings by speaking a thousand words, drawing out the sparks of emotion. Every little detail is entwined with grace and beauty. Oh what a talent! We have learnt a lot about gratitude with you being with us on our special day. Thank you for taking the time to thank all who made our wedding a success. It is so rare to see people take the time to recognise acts of kindness, however small. Your review about our wedding day moved us to tears. THANK YOU! Much love, Camy & Fabien xx
Chris & Ruth
You can trust Larissa to capture your special day with sensitivity, care and a professional attitude. She asks the right questions, gets to know you before hand, understands what you want out of her work and then on the day works like a ninja to get the job done….. She is devoted to you and your day and getting the best for you. Having started at 8am it wasn’t until 9.30pm when she came up to me and informed me that she might go home soon! It has been an epic day, long, tiring, outside the whole time and she didn’t miss a moment. We’ll treasure our photos for years to come and we’re super happy to have gone with Larissa. The icing on the cake is the box the 50 prints come in, we had a little special gift in ours along with lovely wrapping and beautiful delivery. Thank you Larissa. I wish you all the best on your journey. Much love, Chris and Ruth. x
Becky & Dan
We booked Larissa last minute for our wedding after our original photographer had to pull out. From that first contact, I knew we were in good hands. Larissa was extremely organised, full of ideas but still listened to exactly what we wanted. Larissa was dedicated, doing everything she could despite the short notice and she was reliable, even turning up extra early on the day to make sure she didn’t miss anything. We absolutely love our photos, we will cherish them forever and the online gallery is especially useful for sharing with friends and family. Thank you so much! -Becky & Dan at The Old Rectory Hotel, Llangattock
Lisa & Craig
WOW! An absolutely amazing job! They are absolutely stunning – more than we could ever have hoped for. I loved reliving the day and seeing moments I’d missed because we were so busy. The photos are out of this world and we will truly cherish them! We can’t wait to share them with everyone! Thank you so much again Larissa. xx – Lisa & Craig at Bryngawr House
Maddy & Mike
Larissa has exceeded our expectations in every possible way. The photos we now have are just wonderful, and truly reflect us as a couple. Working with Larissa was a true pleasure, she took into consideration everything we wanted and really made our day feel extra special. – Maddy & Mike @ Mshed Bristol
John & Laura
When I first spoke to Larissa over the phone I knew that we were on the same wavelength. She was friendly and chilled out and I immediately felt confident that she understood the “vibe” that my partner and I were looking for with our wedding pictures – fun, natural, not at all cheesy. She was very organised and good at communicating right through the process, with quick responses to emails and a couple of phonecalls in the run-up to the wedding. There was also a carefully considered questionnaire. On the day itself, she was unobtrusive while making sure she got herself where she needed to be. And was firm when necessary. Sometimes people just need corralling! Most importantly, we loved the pictures. There was a real range, from posed group photos to natural shots of people dancing and chatting, laughing and crying. We couldn’t have asked for more. She comes highly recommended. -Laura, wedding in Stroud
Silvia & Stewart
Larissa Joice did an amazing job on photographing our wedding day.
She was on time and organised. She was able to do her job without imposing her presence, very discreet. Photos are amazing and she capture all the little details that I wanted to remember. She has a very good eye for details and she is also very organised. Larissa listened to our requests and she was able to capture all the many Italo/British emotions throughout our ceremony and festa! . She was very fast in delivering the final files and I loved the usb stick/box photos idea she delivered our photos in. Grazie! – Silvia & Stewart at Usk Castle
Being very self-conscious around cameras because I am plus-sized and hate, hate, hate having my photo taken, I was so incredibly nervous before the shoot that if I had not needed photographs done for my professional life I may well have cancelled the session. I am very glad I went ahead: Larissa put me at ease from the moment I arrived by talking to me, posing me, making me laugh, while at the same time reassuring me, so I did not feel self-conscious once! Added to this experience is the fact that I now have some of the best photographs ever taken of me; I am one very happy customer. – Akita
Rob & Ana
Larissa’s photos of our special day are magical! Organising a wedding is pretty stressful – but not the photography element. Larissa was excellent at listening to our needs and planing the whole day. We are so impressed with our photos as Larissa conveys the environment, emotion and energy in each shot.
– Rob & Ana at Lincoln College – Oxford
I cannot write here, how much I love the work that you have done for us. They are beyond any of my hopes and wishes and are just exquisite.(and believe me I had high hopes!) You have captured our family so naturally and beautifully and they mean so much to me. – Rebecca
Vaughan & Julia
We wanted professional photos of our wedding! That is certainly exactly what we were given by Larissa. The photos were outstanding and will provide amazing memories for us in the years ahead. They were a brilliant record of our happy day, which will never be forgotten! – Vaughan & Julia in Cardiff
Tass & family
My Mum met Larissa at a local show and suggested her to me as I wanted some photos done of our family at home on the farm. Larissa was extremely professional, accommodating & efficient in her customer service. She listened to our requests and gave great advice to us in preparation for the photo shoot so we achieved what we wanted. My husband and I were over the moon with the photographs she took, edited and printed. I can highly recommend Larissa J Photography xx – Tass
Samantha & Richard
Larissa was wonderfully kind, calm and understanding during what was a very emotional shoot in memory of my little boy Oscar. I couldn’t have asked for more and the end results were just perfect and a brilliant tribute to my baby who is loved so much and missed even more. – Samantha
My partner and I had a valentine couples shoot. Larissa was exceptional. We felt really relaxed in the studio, had some giggles and are chuffed to bits with the photos. The images themselves were very natural and taken respectfully. Thanks Larissa. – Lucy
Kathleen & Madeline
Larissa is truly exceptional. She made my TERRIBLY shy daughter feel at home (in no time she was smiling and playing – something she never did with anyone she’d just met), and got the most stunning shots you’ve ever seen. Now, over a year later, I still adore them. Which is really something, because any other shots I’ve gotten from other photographers seem pretty dull after a few months, and within a year I usually hate them. But these… These photos I will love forever. Thank you SO much, Larissa!!! – Kathleen
A relaxed and wonderful walk, capturing some great natural moments that I will cherish for many years, thank you again Larissa – there are just so many stunning photo’s to choose from. – Duncan
Laura & Family
Every photo we love and will cherish. So patient and understanding with an unwilling 2 year old. Natural photos of the highest quality. Excellent and would most definitely recommend! – Laura
Christie & Libby
I have always felt uncomfortable having my photo taken – think 1970’s school photos. Larissa chose a beautiful, natural location and put my daughter and I at ease from the very beginning of the shoot. She didn’t rush us and allowed us to relax and be ourselves. It was a lovely experience and the our photos couldn’t of been lovelier. – Christine
