Joanna shot our wedding at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos last weekend. She blew us away. Our bridal party, family and friends were all talking about how great she was -- super efficient, knew exactly how to direct people, and delivered a stunning preview THAT NIGHT. She scouted locations that our planner didn't even know existed on the property, and negotiated access to parts of the vineyard that would typically be off limits. We had a tricky timeline since our ceremony started around 6pm and the sun set at 6:45... and we didn't do a first look. I REALLY didn't want to do a first look despite the limited daylight that would leave us with, and Joanna assured me we could make it work. She was literally RUNNING to make it happen for us, put us in her car and drove us around to chase the light. It was impressive, and we will never forget seeing each other for the first time from the aisle. Joanna was super responsive, quick to hop on the phone or email back about my many obnoxious questions. Absolutely blown away by her professionalism and quality of her work.

Joanna is crazy talented! My husband and I first saw she at our friends wedding, which was like 100° out & Joanna was hustling!! After seeing our friends wedding photos & knowing how hard this girl works, we were sold! It's amazing how she captures the little details to the big details. We booked her for both engagement & wedding. I had surgery before our engagement photos & even with a cast on my hand, she still was able to capture the most beautiful photos! (and it made for a good story!) If you have never taken professional photos before, it can be a little weird & awkward, but Joanna made it extremely comfortable & non-awkward! So, by the time our wedding came around, it felt more like having another one of our friends there than a photographer! She is VERY speedy with getting our photos to us!! We HIGHLY recommend Joanna. We will definitely be using her for future family photos when that time comes around!

Joanna was an amazing wedding photographer and we have the photographs to prove it. She was easy going and professional and adjusted to what we wanted day of the wedding. She was thoughtful when posing photographs and had scouted out the property the day before so she had several ideas of where to do first looks, bride and groom photos, etc. I would most highly recommend Joanna!!
We were referred to Joanna by my brother Kenny who hired her for his wedding so when our big day came around, Joanna already knew all about our family dynamics and had built up a rapport with my parents and close friends. She even came to our Brunch the next morning with her Husband and sat and visited with my relatives. Oh, and did I mention that she did all of this while pregnant!!
