what they say

feeling the love

I think that one of the most important parts of working with anyone is forming a wonderful friendship and trust. I have been so incredibly lucky with all of my clients; they have certainly become more than just clients. I count so many of them as friends now, and it make me realize just important my role is in people's lives, whether I am capturing their wedding day, creating newborn portraits, spending an afternoon with a senior, or meeting a family at a park. I love getting to know each and everyone of the people whose lives I have now become a part of. My goal is always to show not just a beautiful picture, but to capture a moment in time in a beautiful and meaningful way. Pictures last for generations, and it is so crucial to create images that are family heirlooms. It is such an honor that so many of my families and couples have reached out over the years to let me know how much they love what we have done together. I hope you love it, too! Check out below to see what others are saying about their experience.

Amanda & Robert


Joanna instantly felt like an old friend, even from our first email communications, and the feeling continued throughout my wedding day, which was an incredible comfort.  She ran around to make sure she was always in the right place at the right time to capture some of the most important memories of our lives in the most beautiful way. My husband hates having his photo taken and always puts up a big fight, but even he had so much fun with Joanna that he didn't mind the pictures at all! She worked her magic on everyone and has the patience of a saint. 

Nikki & Kyle


Joanna was absolutely amazing to us. From meeting her, to traveling with us to a special location for our engagement pictures to our perfect weddig day. She was there for us not only for photography but to help with little odds and ends. She went above and beyond to get what I believe are some of the greatest photos!

Sarah & Tyler


Joanna and her co-photographer Emma photographed our wedding in Syracuse and they exceeded our expectations. The quality of the photos and the natural emotional moments they captured are something we will be able to look back on and remember for the rest of our married life together. Not to mention, Joanna will go above and beyond to capture precious moments of you and your new spouse/fiance. They had fun with our bridal party and always kept us laughing and smiling. 

Jonelle & Robert


Joanna and Rob did an INCREDIBLE job of capturing our day. They were so easy to work with from start to finish and we felt completely comfortable with them on the day of the wedding. They were with us almost the entire day and took the most amazing photos as we moved from place to place. Wedding days fly by and this couple did such a great job of making sure I never forget those special moments.

Kaitlin & Douglas


If I could give 6 stars, I would. Joanna was INCREDIBLE. Not only was I so so so happy with the final photos, but she was super responsive in answering my questions and was fun to spend the day with. She even got her feet into freezing cold water to make sure she had the right angle to shoot some dock photos of our wedding party.
