natural beauty in a natural light
It's beauty that captures your attention;
personality which captures your heart. ~Anonymous ~
With camera work that reveals both the elegance of the natural world and the richly expressive personal moments of the wedding ceremony and celebration, Joanna Tano's photography captures both your attention and your heart.
Careful not to intrude on the wedding ritual, Joanna becomes an almost invisible presence whose aperture opens to the heightened joy of the participants. Working as much as possible with natural light, and with a keen sense of composition, Joanna honors the mood of each moment, unafraid to capture movement and emotion. Her photojournalistic style allows her to create evocative storybooks and slideshows, in which a succession of spontaneous images tells the story of the wedding.

Joanna was great to work with. Being from California, getting married in Maui was a destination wedding for us. My Wedding planner recommended Joanna to me and I instantly fell in love with her style. But, I was nervous to work with someone I had never met before. When I contacted her to get more info about her rates, she responded immediately. She sent over samples of photos from all different weddings she had done & made me feel so comfortable. She sent me a questionnaire so she could get to know my style, certain shots I wanted, and what my expectations were. On the wedding day, she was so attentive, always by my side asking if there were things I wanted shots of, and we connected. She was great at getting our group together for the photos and organizing everyone. She also had worked at our venue many times so she knew the best places for the best photos. The best part, our photos came about 2.5 weeks after the wedding! That was impressive! We got about 950 photos and they were all AMAZING it's so hard for me to pick my favorites. If you are thinking about booking with Joanna, just do it. She is worth it. I have sent my photos to so many family members & every one of them compliment how amazing the photos are. I couldn't have asked for anything better from a photographer!Sent on 12/05/2018

Picture Perfect Maui Wedding
Looking for a good photographer isn’t easy. Especially when our wedding venue is overseas and all we can do is trust what we saw on the internet. But with the help from our coordinator Kimberlee Aihara, we were directed to several photographers of choice, one being Joanna Tano’s professional photography services. Looking at her portfolio, I could see that her style and eye for taking in a scene was very much how we’d like our photos to come out. And when the day finally came, we were not displeased. When we received our digital photos the quality of the shots was amazing. One of my requirements is that we didn’t want posed shots, but candid ones. To us it felt more natural and fit the environment we were in. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Thank you Joanna, and your assistant for making our wedding day memorable.Sent on 01/10/2019

Joanna is amazing! She's like a ninja...she stealthily managed to be everywhere and capture every perfect moment of our wedding. I'm sure other people could say this about their wedding photographers, but Joanna also managed to do all this under a compressed timeframe. My husband and I (and 95% of our guest list) are from Oahu. We chose to get married on Maui because we fell in love with Sugar Beach Events (separate review for that). Wanting to allow our guests the ability to fly back to Oahu that same night, we decided to ensure that our wedding festivities would be over by 8:30pm - leaving minimal time for formal photos. Yet somehow, Joanna managed to capture everything! She was there for the final touches of my hair & makeup, got some beautiful shots of us with our bridal party, snuck in some sunset photos on the beach, and captured all the little details that quite frankly, I spent a lot of time planning but didn't really get to enjoy and take note of during the flurry of the day. In addition, Joanna would check in with me every now and then to see if there were particular shots or guests I wanted pictures of. Had she not checked in with me, I probably would've forgotten she was even there as she manages to do all her work non-intrusively. Joanna is sweet, professional, and attentive...and her pictures (framing, lighting, posing) are spectacular. For other soon-to-be brides out there that are Type A worry-warts like me, hiring Joanna is a decision you won't regret - rest assured that you are in the best hands!Sent on 09/23/2018
Exquisite photos each and every time, Joanna Tano Photography not only captures our couple's special Maui wedding day, but does it artistically and manages to catch those endearing moments.
Maui has a unique way of inspiring photography. Yet, you would think Joanna Tano has a special connection to the island evidenced by the almost magical way she gets imagery into her camera. Wow!
We highly recommend Joanna Tano Photography! She is professional and does great work! It is alway a pleasure working with her.
