Joanne Withers Photography

Lifestyle, wedding & branding photography.

I love photography for the memories and the stories – not the gadgets. I love coffee, so am always happy to meet for a chat. If you prefer fizz – even better! I got married in 1999 to Damian who copes with my constant plans to be Living the Dream.

There is nothing better in life than getting on a plane – it means adventure is on the way.

The wings in my logo come from a necklace that says, ‘She took a leap of faith and built her wings on the way down’ – a way I try to think about life, even when I’m scared.

The thing I would save first from my house (after the dog of course – the husband is capable of fending for himself) would be my photo albums from childhood to present years.



St Marks’ Stays

We have opened our home to our guests. We love dogs and have a big secure garden for everyone to stretch out in and our dining room is made for partying. As live in hosts we can even show guests where to grab the best coffee and cake in town, or take you on a walk through the stunning landscape of the Yorkshire Dales.
