    Out of the box style

    We could not have been happier with choosing Joanna as our photographer for our wedding in October. Photos were one of the three aspects of our wedding that was most important to me, and I knew I did not want stereotypical wedding photos you see everywhere. Joanna did not disappoint. Her style is so unique and beautiful and she captured every moment perfectly. She had no problem traveling from Raleigh to the mountains of Virginia for our ceremony. She is also not afraid to bend the rules when trying to capture the perfect moment, which my husband and I both appreciate. Having the second shooter was also key to capturing everything. I would 100% recommend Joanna to anyone looking for a unique and classy style for their wedding or engagement shoot and photos you (and your family and friends) will rave about and fawn over for years to come.

    Joanna was so easy to work with and it is reflected in our wedding photos. My husband and I were able to be goofy and silly and she captured that in the most beautiful way. We are so thankful to have chosen her as our photographer!

    Loved all of our photos. She did a great job making us feel comfortable and capturing the bond between us not just smiling faces. Very quick to get back to us too about everything! Definitely recommend to any and everyone!

    We booked Joanna for our engagement photos and wedding coverage. She is so efficient with her time, knowing how to get the job done while also staying light-hearted and fun! We loved working with her and her husband, Jesse, for our wedding and would recommend them to anyone. It has been such a joy to have these photos and share them with our loved ones!

    There aren't enough words to give Joanna thanks for the way she worked with me as her client. Let me start by saying YES she captured absolutely BEAUTIFUL photos of my engagement and my wedding day and my whole family and I are in love with them, but you can see that her work is outstanding based on her portfolio and her blog (go check it out!). What you can't see is the care in which she takes of her clients. All the texts and phone calls and the worry that she fielded from me over the span of my engagement is why I needed to write this review, because you can't see that as easily by flipping through her photos. For one reason or another, I often found myself worried about what my wedding photos would look like after it's all said and done. Your wedding photos are one of the only true things that will last beyond your wedding day (and of course your marriage), so I really wanted them to fit my vision and wanted my day to be captured perfectly. More than once I would send Joanna a text message with a question, and she'd automatically sense my worry/concern and begin to ease my anxious heart with photo examples and different editing styles that she'd use/not use for my photos based on what she knew I liked/disliked, all in an effort to assure me that she understood my vision. And when I say more than once I mean that! There were several times that I thought "gosh she must be tired of my questioning", but she never ever was. And she always took the time to make me feel at ease. Even with things like the weather, where she had no control over the outcome, she spent time assuring me we'd capture great photos regardless. Having her at my wedding photographing every moment, it felt like I had a good friend nearby all day who knew exactly what my vision was and how to capture it all perfectly. I was totally calm and not worried about the pictures or cameras at all. I just knew she had it all handled. That kind of client service is priceless. Book her! You won't regret it.

    Joanna is absolutely amazing to work with! We were so pleased with both our engagement and wedding photos. Not only did she make us look great, but she also captured our individual personalities and chemistry as a couple with such artistry. Very fun and professional, great rates, quick turn around. I highly recommend!

    Right off the bat Joanna impressed me. I was planning my wedding from California and from our first phone conversation I could tell she knew what she was doing. She asked all the right questions and even things I didn't consider. We did an engagement session with her prior to our big day. It was a great opportunity for my camera shy husband and I to do a test run before our wedding day. Our pictures turned out amazing! In the 9 years my husband and I had been together we never had a good photo together, now we have a whole lot. Joanna and her husband were professional, dependable and extremely talented. I would definitely recommend them to those looking for a professional photographer!

    We loved working with Joanna! She was professional, prepared, creative, comforting, and fun. She captured fantastic photos of us, but we never felt like we had to pose. She made everything feel natural, and in the end, our photos came out making us look like authentic, happy, glowing versions of ourselves.

    Joanna completed a thorough review over the phone with us about a week before the wedding that helped the whole day go smoothly and allowed us to miss very little of our reception. That helped us get the photos we wanted without wasting time.

    I also loved having Joanna be a part of our day. She was lighthearted, funny, and blended perfectly with the group. I did not realize how big of an asset it would be to have a photographer that felt like a friend, but it makes the day way more enjoyable! We wholeheartedly recommend Joanna for anyone looking for high quality photos and a joy filled experience!

    You will be 110% satisfied if you decide to hire Joanna for your engagement photos or wedding photos. She did both for me and I CANNOT STOP looking at my amazing pictures. Besides having impeccable style and taste in her work, she is so diligent and professional on the day of that she could probably double as a wedding coordinator! I really cant say enough nice things about her - she is a slam dunk in my book and you will be so happy to have her, on your big day, documenting one of the most important moments of your life.

    I highly recommend Joanna for visual story-telling and captivating photographic experience.

    Joanna Sue Photography was amazing to work with. She came prepared and was completely at ease. The photographs were absolutely stunning and breath-taking. I chose Joanna because lighting is super important to me. I could tell from her gallery how much she took care to make use of the light in every setting. Joanna was incredibly patient and knew how to guide the poses of the groom and I. When I received our photos, I was delighted to look at the portrait shots, the candid ones, and everything in between! Joanna is incredibly talented and creative. She made every shot count. I will be looking at my photos every year and years to come. The pictures were timeless and I will treasure them for a long time.

    Joanna was just incredible as our wedding photographer. It was such a wonderful experience working along side her. She is one of those people that you feel you’ve known your whole life within the first few minutes of talking to her. Our engagement session was a blast and our photos of both the engagement and wedding could not have been any better. She brings a definite talent and gift to her work, and her creativity is undeniable! Joanna’s second shooter, her husband Jesse, was also completely awesome according to my hubby! They had a great time hanging out and taking pictures on wedding day too! We are so excited to have met these two, I couldn’t have asked for any better of an experience. We will def be keeping her as a family photographer for other events, and hopefully as a newfound friend in Raleigh! Book this girl Y’all you won’t regret it :)

    Joanna was amazing. She shot our engagement and wedding photos which turned out absolutely amazing! She worked with our busy schedules and lack of creativity and gave our pictures life and theme. Her and her husband were so fun to be around and made taking pictures so easy and helpful. We highly recommend her and will use her in the future!

    I met Joanna first whiling strolling through a bridal expo in the Fall in Raleigh. With so many wedding decisions on photography vendors, I was beyond overwhelmed and no one was really standing out to me. Once Joanna handed me a Jane Austen novel to use as a hard surface to write my contact information at her booth, I knew we would get along just fine. This past October, Joanna already proved her photography talents with our engagement photos. We were very grateful she was so flexible with us to include our miniature schnauzer in our engagement photos. Now in July, we have just gotten our photos from our late May wedding, and we are stunned in how amazing the photos have come out. My husband and I are extremely impressed. Prior to the wedding, I asked Joanna for an emphasis of photographs of my grandparents in the wedding. She exceeded my expectation. I could not be more happier with the way she captured my Papa dancing. Joanna and her husband are an unstoppable photography team. If you want a photographer that is organized, professional, pays to the utmost attention to details, captures every important moment, and who will listen to your every need, chose Joanna Sue Photography.

    We are so grateful to Joanna Sue Photography for capturing all of our wedding day photos! Joanna and her husband Jesse were AWESOME to work with & made taking those "awkward" pictures extremely easy, fun and effortless to do. Joanna is so professional and she makes you feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. We can't thank you enough and will cherish those pictures for a lifetime!

    Wow. We'll I only have 3500 characters to express how much I loved having Joanna and Jesse with us on our wedding day to capture everything.
    Photography was so important to me because I knew that of EVERYTHING from that day, the only things that would truly last forever would be the pictures.
    Joanna was very flexible in working with me. She is great at communication which is a huge plus with wedding vendors.
    She gave direction very well in the stressful environment of trying to get two large families together for pictures.
    When I received my wedding photos back I was in awe. They looked like they were straight from a wedding magazine.
    I could tell that each image had a purpose and a vision. She and her husband weren't just walking around snapping pictures. Their effort to capture my day for what is was truly shined through their work.
    Looking through the photos I was able to completely relive my day and experience all the little moments that just flew by so fast.
    The light, the positioning, the editing, the creativity, the quality, all of it was just everything I have ever wanted for my wedding pictures. They pay so much attention to detail.
    I would HIGHLY recommend Joanna to anyone!
    Joanna is always willing to step out of her comfort zone and try new things and adjust to a couple's "style" which is so awesome and ensures that your pictures will truly be unique!
    The Shugart's LOVE Joanna Sue Photography!

    Every bride wants to feel special and know that everything is taken care of on her wedding day, Joanna did just that ... and more!
    I, as the bride, felt cared for and I also knew she was on top of it! Every picture I could want or dream of, she got.
    After my wedding, scrolling through our pictures, we were able to relive or beautifully captured wedding. And it was stunning!!
    Joanna and Jesse work great as a team! My husband, Tyler, shared that Jesse made him and his groomsmen feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera.
    I highly recommend Joanna, she we will work with you, and do the most high quality work. It's better than Pinterest y'all!

    Joanna is awesome! There is something to be said about a husband and wife working together and that is the case with Joanna and her husband. They have such great communication and trust between each other that it made the whole day so efficient. Joanna photographed the girls getting ready, while her husband Jesse, photographed the guys and then after the ceremony they worked together to get awesome shots of me and my now husband without taking hours and making our guest wait on us! They went above and beyond to get great shots, even if it meant she had to sit in some bushes to get the right angle. She is super responsive & also she remembered the names of my bridal party and immediate family almost instantly, which always impresses me and it made my girls feel included when not just referred to as bridesmaid #2. I haven't even seen the pictures yet, as our wedding was a week ago, but I was showed some along the way and the way she caught the light and little special moments in her pictures is just a amazing! So excited I got to work with this amazing couple and can't wait to see the finished pictures!

    I cannot express enough how amazing Joanna was throughout our wedding planning process up to the wedding day and to getting us beautiful pictures after. I started planning this wedding from abroad and was so overwhelmed - she worked with me and met with on my time after we got back to the US. She was so professional the day of, told me exactly what she needed from me and was open to everything I needed from her. And the pictures! The are absolutely breathtaking - people can't stop talking about them! I would recommend Joanna to anyone and be confident that they would be getting absolutely stellar photos - hope we can continue to work together as our family grows one day!
