Joanna was amazing! If you are looking for someone who communicates clearly, works efficiently, and gets gorgeous shots, she's a great choice.Sent on 02/10/2019
From our very first interactions with Joanna, we were very impressed with her. When we began contacting photographers, Joanna was the only one who requested a phone call with us in the very first stages of communication, which was incredibly helpful in getting a feel for who she was and if she would be a good fit for us. When we scheduled our engagement pictures, we really wanted to take photos in Stillwater. Even though she had never shot there, Joanna did a ton of research to find incredible places that we would never have known about. She even ran with us through the streets of Stillwater as we attempted to make it into a bookstore before it closed! We were coming in from out of town, and she was able to have shots for us to view before we left the Cities, which was so considerate and helpful.
As we continued wedding planning, Joanna was very organized and had great systems to help us communicate what we wanted from our wedding photos. On our wedding day, she knew exactly what we wanted and kept us *ahead* of schedule before the ceremony. After she took a photo of my gigantic extended family, one of my cousins remarked "Those were the least painful family photos ever." She was also pleasant and gracious - she ran to get me tissues when I started crying even before our first look, she convinced our venue coordinator that our send-off streamers were actually within venue regulations (and we didn't find out about the near-crisis until months after), and she was incredibly generous with her time.
When we got the final photos back, we were so, so pleased. Joanna captured the most important parts of our day and nailed the feeling that we wanted from our photos. We will treasure these images! Overall, we can recommend Joanna with no reservations.

Working with Joanna was a breeze! As two somewhat unorganized customers, she was so patient and helpful. Discussions with her helped us figure out details of our wedding the had gone by unnoticed. During the ceremony and reception Joanna was like a photographer-ninja! She was so subtle and captured beautiful candid photos of our guests, which we love! I highly recommend her as she works with you seamlessly before, during, and after your wedding. Excellent customer service!

We had an amazing experience working with Joanna! Her communication was great; she was always responsive and happy to answer our questions during the months leading up to the wedding. She helped us put together the timeline for our wedding, and on the day of she made sure everything ran on schedule without anything ever feeling rushed. Our wedding was at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at the Como Zoo and she was very familiar with the location. She planned a short loop for us to walk through the outdoor gardens, and would pop behind bushes and trees for just the right shot. Joanna is truly dedicated to capturing beautiful and authentic photos. She is professional, talented, and friendly - we couldn't have asked for a nicer person to work with. We would highly recommend Joanna; she was a pleasure to work with and we couldn't be happier with our pictures.
