My wife and I loved working with Joanna! She photographed our wedding last month on Maui in Kula and captured so many special moments in the short time we had. It was pouring rain for hours before the ceremony which was challenging because it limited our time for photos, but you would never have guessed that by looking at the pictures because she was still able to get so many great ones! Our ceremony was very small and intimate with just immediate family and Joanna felt like part of our family too. ;) She truly has an eye for lighting and color and was able to incorporate the natural setting perfectly. She is very professional, arrived early, and got the photos back to us quickly. Couldn't have had a better experience! Many thanks from Thomas and KandiceSent on 04/26/2016

I found Joanna through a co-worker’s referral and I’m so glad I found her! We used Joanna to take our engagement photos while we were on vacation in Maui earlier in May. The pictures came out wonderfully! The online process to book Joanna’s services was very easy and efficient. As soon as I booked Joanna, she quickly responded. I gave her some general feedback about the type of photos I wanted, which was both beach and greenery type photos and she was very helpful in suggesting some nice places to take photos. We took photos at Po‘Olenalena Beach which is south of Wailea that had some greenery, craggy rocks and smooth beach areas. The location was perfect; it had everything I was looking for and Joanna took perfect advantage of all the lighting that the sunset had to offer. She really captured some beautiful moments. In the hour we spent with her, Joanna took a variety of photos that made it seem like we traveled to 3 completely different places. The photos arrived in the mail about two weeks later and they were gorgeous! The sunset backgrounds were perfect. There was also a good balance of close-up and panoramic photos as well. I loved all the photos! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.Sent on 12/22/2015

It was a great experience to work with Joanna, and our pictures are amazing! We had a hard time deciding on a location and the details were pretty last minute. Joanna was very flexible and professional. She was helpful and positive throughout the experience. She captured our day perfectly and we would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Joanna!Sent on 12/05/2015

Not only were our photos absolutely amazing -- Joanna is such a nice person to work with. She was on time, and even stayed a bit later than was expected. When the end of the night came, she was not in a rush to leave but instead asked me if there was anything else she should capture or do before she left. We had a videographer that was not from her company and as hard as it can be to work with a random person that you have never met or worked with -- they worked very well together and she was so courteous of his shots and space. Joanna is very personable, we met her the day of our wedding and I would do it all over again with Joanna. My husband and I would enthusiastically recommend Joanna Tano Photography to everyone getting married on any Hawaiian island.Sent on 10/02/2015

I am so happy that I hired Joanna to be my wedding photographer. She was very easy going and made us feel very comfortable. Joanna went above and beyond to capture all the special moments...even going into the water to get the perfect shot. The turnaround time was extremely quick and all the pictures are amazing!! She really knows how to take beautiful pictures using natural light. I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone needing a professional photographer on Maui.Sent on 07/10/2015

Joanna was my photographer for my wedding in Maui. She is very easy going and pleasant to work with, making the day relaxing and stress free. Joanna has a great eye and direction for photography. She created a beautiful blend of our wedding guests, landscape, and artistic shots that comprised our wedding day. Our photo album truly exudes the love and beauty that we felt on that day. Her work more than exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her for any type of event!Sent on 08/23/2015

We were so fortunate to have had Joanna Tano as our photographer for the surprise vow renewal I planned while in Maui. She was extremely responsive from the first email. She gave me clear information about her services and the prices of her packages, She was extremely flexible about scheduling the date and time since we were coordinating it with the minister. I only booked this about 2 weeks ahead of time so I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with Joanna. She was so professional and easy going and made the whole experience so relaxing for my family, The pictures we received were amazing and we had nearly 200 high resolution pictures for a 40 minute session. As one family member said of the pictures, "it was like I was there as she captures all the moments of the event."Sent on 01/17/2015
Megan · Married on 12/09/2014
We had the privilege of having Joanna Tano photograph our wedding at Four Seasons Resort Maui and were absolutely thrilled right from our first encounter with Joanna. She immediately reached out, clearly explained package options with us, greeted us on our wedding day and was a delight to work with. Joanna captured hundreds of special moments beautifully. She was so quick to edit and share the photos with us. We could not have dreamed of working with a more professional, kind, and lovely photographer. Joanna made us feel very comfortable doing our photo shoot and provided perfect guidance and instruction on how to pose and make our photos stunning. We highly recommend Joanna to anyone looking for a professional photographer!Sent on 12/21/2014

Michael · Married on 11/01/2014
Joanna and her husband were absolute professionals. They had planned everything out very nicely to make the most of our time with them. They had photographed other couples on Lanai and as a result were very knowledgeable about where to take some really stunning pictures. We couldn't be happier with the pictures, the service, the professionalism, and the finish product! I would whole-heartedly recommend Joanna to anyone getting married in Hawaii.Sent on 12/29/2014
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Michael, Thank you so much for your review! I really enjoyed working with you and Julie at your wedding on Lana'i! It was wonderful getting to know both of you through email and phone calls before hand and then capturing your beautiful day. Thank you so much for having us!
Reina · Married on 10/24/2014
Joanna & her assistant were absolutely amazing to work with. Being in the catering/events + hospitality industry on a small island, we know that it's certainly about the quality of the work as well as the relationship. From the beginning of our conversation, Joanna was very flexible and truly listened to our needs/visions. Her works speak itself and the final edits were gorgeous. She definitely takes beautiful pictures using natural lights and awesome in taking candid photos. We truly recommend her for any occasions. It's those 'moments' she captures with her camera that make her a remarkable & unique photographer.Sent on 11/15/2014
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Dear Reina and Brett, Thank you so much for this very kind review! It was an honor photographing your beautiful wedding day. I also enjoyed chatting with you before the wedding and learning about your vision and what types of photos you love. Stay in touch and let me know when you are back on Maui. Thank you for having me as your photographer!
Aya · Married on 10/11/2014
Joanna is the sweetest, nicest, and most talented photographer!! She shot our wedding, and the pictures turned out really beautifully. Leading up to the wedding, I regularly e-mailed Joanna to give her an idea about what I liked (I live in California), and she gave me very prompt and informative responses. On our wedding day, she showed up at my hotel room, and started to shoot every detail (my dress, accessories, bouquets, etc.). She then spent the rest of the day capturing the moment. She did an incredible job.Sent on 11/15/2014
When she sent us our online gallery, we were extremely happy!! The pictures are really beautiful, natural, and gorgeous. My husband and I couldn’t be happier. We both strongly recommend Joanna for everybody. If we ever have the opportunity again (like if we renew our vows), we would definitely have her do another photo shoot for us.
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Dear Aya, Thank you so much for your review of my photography services. You and Kyle were wonderful to work with and it was wonderful to capture the beauty and love of your wedding day. I hope you had an amazing time on Maui and that you are able to return soon. Thank you so very much for having me as your photographer!
Olivia · Married on 10/09/2014
Joanna was awesome! When I saw her blog, I loved the style of pictures she takes and knew I REALLY wanted to have Joanna shoot our wedding. She was super nice and patiently answered my many questions. Before the wedding, I emailed her a list of photos with family and friends that were important to us. Joanna had the list printed and just went through it after the ceremony to make sure we got all the group pictures we wanted. She did a honeymoon shoot for us up in Iao Valley and was super flexible with working around our schedule. All the pictures turned out wonderfully and Joanna is the best!!Sent on 11/13/2014
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Olivia, thank you for your kind review. I am so happy that I was there to capture not only your wedding at the Four Seasons but also your honeymoon session at Iao Valley. It was such a pleasure getting to know you and Jerome and working with you both. Thanks for having me as your photographer!
Everly · Married on 10/04/2014
We love working with Joanna Tano Photography for our weddings and events. Not only is she professional and talented, but our clients love working with her! Joanna also understands the different cultural ceremonials involved in the Hindu wedding. From the mehndi party to the sangeet, pujas, baraat and wedding ceremony, she has a wonderful eye for getting us all the "right" shots that the couples are looking for. Mahalo for all your lovely work Joanna!Sent on 10/19/2014
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Dear Everly, Thank you so much for your kind review. It is always such a pleasure working with you as well. You do such a beautiful job with the wedding coordination. I hope to work with you again soon. Aloha, Joanna

Kolina · Married on 09/27/2014
We absolutely loved having Joanna as our photographer for our wedding! Since we were having a destination wedding in Eastern Washington, we did most of our communication with all of our vendors via email and over the phone. While I felt nervous with what type of service I would receive from most of my vendors, I felt absolutely confident in what I was getting from Joanna. From the beginning, she was very professional, timely and straightforward about the service I was requesting while still giving off a calm and comforting vibe. She was so reassuring to work with and handled my "crazy-bride freak outs" with ease. :)Sent on 11/07/2014
On the day of our wedding, Joanna was laid back yet organized. She was able to adapt to the schedule when our groom and groomsmen showed up a little late, when the wind started to pick up and when the sun was casting major shadows in the areas we had pre-planned for the shoot. She was even able to make the entire experience fun and enjoyable for my husband, who HATES having his picture taken and can be pretty un-photogenic at times. Our photos were edited and delivered to us much quicker than I ever thought (within two weeks!) and they turned out absolutely gorgeous.
We would highly recommend using Joanna Tano Photography to document your special occasions!
Joanna Tano Photography's reply:Dear Kolina, Thank you so much for your review. Your wedding was so beautiful and amazing to capture! Thank you for having me there to photograph it! Congrats to you and Spencer. Aloha, Joanna

Felicia · Married on 01/11/2014
Pls save time on selecting wedding photographers and take my advice to go with Joanna. I have carefully browsed all the work by various photographers the Four seasons resort had recommended and Joanna's work had made my decision an easy one for one of the most important days of my life. You will be completely at ease and looking beautiful and natural on photos even if you are a nervous bride. Make sure to do some sunset shots - my husband and I fell in love with the beautiful maui sunset (better than santorini!) she captured in the background.Sent on 02/08/2014
Rachel · Married on 10/05/2013
Joanna is the nicest, most laid back, and professional person I have ever met! This was my first time every being married or having to find a photographer. She over exceeded my expectations. Her work is absolutely breath taking. I get tears in my eyes every time I look at our album. She captured our day just beautifully. Joanna is very knowledgeable about the islands, we had lost of questions and she was more than happy to help us. She arrived on time and even stayed late because we were driving to multiple locations to capture the perfect sunset. I can't say enough great things about her. You will not find anyone better!Sent on 02/28/2014
John · Married on 09/15/2013
We used Joanna as our photographer and she was simply amazing and made us feel so comfortable. We got some really good shoots and she took us to a beach for some great pics and we can't wait to see the finished product. She was very easy to work with as we had a destination wedding so we communicated mostly through email and phone. The minute we met her we felt at ease and excited to begin capturing our wedding and reception. If you need a photographer for anything while your in Maui we highly recommend Joanna! Thanks for creating and capturing everything on our special day.Sent on 09/27/2013

We highly recommend working with Joanna Tano. We were impressed with the photos we received for our wedding, all were amazing and returned shortly after the wedding day. Not only was she easy to work with leading up to the wedding but she also made the day of experience stress free and enjoyable. Joanna was able to capture every moment of our wedding that has helped us relieve the memory today and forever. It was nice that she was timely and took pictures of those family and friends we had requested. Her creativity stands out and made every moment look beautiful!Sent on 09/13/2013

Joanna Tano photography was more than accommodating, flexible and professional. As we prepared for our new babies blessing capturing the moments prior were timeless. Babies are unpredictable an Joanna was able to adapt and remain comfortable despite moments when we attempted to capture all three children in between diaper changes and naps. The photos are beautiful, and I received them in a timely manner enabling me to still make birth announcements with in two weeks of birth.Sent on 05/31/2013
