Kelly Cotter Photography

About us

We are Joanne Kelly and Nikki Cotter; with our creative forces combined we make up the fabulous Kelly Cotter Photography (in our humble opinion). We are passionate photographers, but above all firm friends. We met several years ago when Jo was at the start of her career photographing a wedding where Nikki was a bridesmaid, we instantly clicked and Jo had soon recruited Nikki to second shoot with her permanently and the rest as they say is history!

Eight years and many wedding later our style is well and truly established and we have fallen hook, line and sinker in love with weddings and all the loveliness that comes with them. From the first meeting with our gorgeous couples until we stand proudly (often with a little lump in our throats) photographing your first dance we savour every part of the journey. We often pinch ourselves that we get to do this as a job, sharing the most special day of your lives with you is a huge honour, we share your smiles, your laughter and always have a tissue handy to wipe away any tears. Our relaxed approach allows us to capture those special intimate moments that mean so much and will be treasured for years to come.


We both have lovely husbands who happily listen to our wedding chatter, we also have two junior members of the team little Henry and Emily, Jo’s children, we are training them up to carry our kit, payment will be in rusks and building blocks. We are both big foodies and will never say no to a sticky toffee pudding, tea and coffee fuels us and most importantly we love to laugh.......lots, usually at one another.
