Joanne was wonderful to work with. She was very detailed and worked well with the DJ and other people involved in the wedding to help capture our special day. She had a great eye to catch the big moments and then even the small ones that made all the difference when we saw our photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone.Sent on 11/29/2020

Joanne was the best, accommodating, flexible, kind and supportive.
Joanne was great to work with and it truly felt she was very invested in us as a couple and really cared about our story and capturing our day. She thought of things that we might not have and that was super helpful. Even with changing plans due to COVID she stood by us without hesitation and adjusted to what we were doing. I am so thankful for all she did for our day and the pictures were amazing too!!!Sent on 08/05/2020

Joanne is Amazing
Joanne is a wonderful photographer, and she was incredibly accommodating through the challenges of COVID. She is kind and compassionate, and very comfortable to work with. We had many comments from guests after our wedding about how amazing she was. We also have two small children and she adapted to each of their personalities really well. We have wonderful photos from our special day, and we received the final copies much quicker than expected. We would highly recommend Joanne!Sent on 12/20/2020

Lovely and Wonderful to Work With
Joanne was an absolute delight to work with. She's such a sweetheart, and was able to take our unrefined ideas and flesh them out. She had tons of great suggestions for photo shoot locations and poses. We were thrilled with our llama walk engagement photos, our first look photos at Topsmead, and our wedding day shots - absolutely breathtaking. We couldn't be happier. She and her partners work really well together, the shoots went really smoothly. If we had interest in getting a particular photo, she was able to run with it and capture exactly what we had in mind. Can't talk her up enough, thank you for everything, Joanne!Sent on 02/01/2020

Exceptional, Professional, The Perfect Possible Scenario
There are people throughout this experience that claim that they are going to "be there for you" and help you with the "tough to answer questions" and say that they are willing to do "whatever they can" to make your day as special as can be. Many people claim this, but Joanne truly embodied this ideal and made my wedding day, the best day of my life. The humor, the calming presence, the sincerity and the knowledge that Joanne brought throughout the entire wedding process with my wife and I was above and beyond what anyone could've asked for.Sent on 02/06/2020

Joanne Vandal was a wondeful photographer. She captured the most magnificent engagement photos and wedding photos for mySent on 06/25/2014
Husband and I. Not only was she patient and kind, she has such a positive attitude and had everyone smiling and laughing thoughout both shoots. My husband is very shy and not one for taking many photos, but you would never know this in the pictures Joanne took. Because of her fun personality my husband and I were smiling and enjoying ourselves the entire shoot and each picture looks very natural, while capturing our true love for one another. I would recommend Joanne to anyone. She is a brilliant, professional photographer and I am so happy with the work she did for us on the happiest day of our lives!

Joanne was the photographer for my daughters August wedding and she was AMAZING! She was so professional and much fun to have with us on our daughters special day and it truly shows in the pictures. They are absolutely the most beautiful pictures that I have ever seen and I couldn’t be happier. Joanne is so talented and just captures the best in everyone. She is a true artist!Sent on 11/25/2019

Joanne was absolutely wonderful!
Working with Joanne for our wedding was a dream! We loved that her packaged included an engagement shoot. It allowed us to get to know her and help us feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Even my husband who hates to have his picture taken had a blast that day. Of course the pictures turned out amazing as well. The pictures from the wedding day were even better. She has a natural eye and we loved that she was able to come up with unique poses right on the spot. She really gets to know every couple and allows their personality to shine through in the pictures. The whole process was fun and stress free thanks to her. I would highly recommend!Sent on 12/06/2018

The minute my now-husband and I met Joanne, we felt completely at ease and that she was really listening to what was most important to us. This occurred during the 1-hr on-site meeting she includes in her packages, which was a large part of why we chose her. We walked through the entire plan for the wedding day and left feeling like old friends. She took my frenzied lists and created a calm, cool, and relaxed atmosphere on the day-of where she made sure to capture everything we wanted, all the while making the whole wedding party feel like supermodels. Her photos incorporated details of the venue as well as sentimental aspects we specifically asked for, creating an overall gorgeous and uniquely memorable album of photos. We cannot recommend her enough and would hire her again in a heartbeat!Sent on 09/07/2018

Joanne Vandal Photography helped make our wedding day perfect. From the start, Joanne made sure to thoroughly understand exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Joanne made those dreams a reality. Through personable customer service and flexibility, Joanne took much of the wedding planning pressure off of us and helped to ensure the ideal wedding day. We would highly recommend her!Sent on 09/16/2018
Hannah · Married on 07/06/2018
Joanne was fantastic! Our wedding pictures came out beautifully, and the moments she captured were perfect. We were both a little nervous because we really hadn't taken many professional photos, but Joanne was able to direct us into poses that were natural. Her eye for lighting, background, and utilizing space was very noticeable in our outdoor shots, and the finished photos were perfectly edited (not overdone). She was a joy to work with, and made the whole process stress-free, organized, and efficient. Highly recommend!Sent on 08/11/2018
Krystal · Married on 06/30/2018
I had the pleasure of working with Joanne closely in the beginning of my wedding planning stages I couldn't imagine working with anyone else! Joanne was by far the easiest and most knowledgeable person when it came to planning timelines and how we would get the best photos she also was extremely accommodating with our difficult schedules and super responsive to our questions. I loved Joannes sheer raw talent her photos captured of our day which drew me into meeting her initially. Her photos are not photoshopped and fake instead they captured the moments and we feel like we're are then when we look back. It was so nice to be surprised in the moments she captured and the sheer details she thought of due to her artistic style. When you meet Joanne you feel like she's family and someone you have known your entire life her personality helps you feel comfortable on letting her in to a very intimate day of your life. Also, her prices were cost effective and surpass the work she does! We look forward to working with Joanne in the future for any of our future portrait needs my family and guests also raved about how great she was to work with! I forgot to add the turn around time for our photos Joanne didn't even take 4 weeks to produce them which is extremely fast!!Sent on 07/28/2018
Joanne Vandal Photography's reply:Thank you Krystal! You and Brad were amazing and easy going to work with. All your planning paid off, I loved all the details at the venue that you brought in! I wish you guys all the best and PLEASE stay in touch!!!
Lisa · Married on 06/16/2018
I can't say enough good things about working with Joanne! What initially drew me to Joanne the most is that she takes breathtaking photos without all of the "smoke and mirrors" that some other photographers use; she just makes you look good naturally, no over-airbrushing or crazy filters, just REAL photography talent. We used Joanne for both our engagement and wedding photography. She has such a knack for figuring out a couple's "style" and incorporating it into her work. I wouldn't consider ourselves people who are particularly comfortable in front of a camera, but Joanne made it so easy and fun! Joanne pays attention to every detail and will bend over backwards (sometimes almost literally) to get the photos you want. Joannes pricing is very reasonable and I consider her photos to be on par or better than some of the photographers who charge twice as much or more. If you want incredible, affordable, and just all-around amazing photos, you should give Joanne a call!Sent on 07/24/2018

Amanda · Married on 09/22/2017
Joanne is an amazingly talented and fun photographer, and was an absolute pleasure to work with! My, now husband, and I planned our CT wedding while living in CO so it was very important to find someone who was responsive and accommodating to all our requests. Joanne made sure that we had several phone encounters along with tons of communication through email to ensure we had a timeline in place for our wedding day. The best part of it all was we just had to show up! She kept things organized and professional and made sure that every detail and all of our needs were captured. Fast forward 3 weeks (talk about fast) and our pictures are everything we hoped for and more, simply beautiful! We could not be happier and definitely recommend Joanne to anyone who may be looking for a photographer.Sent on 10/15/2017

Joanne was professional easy going and a great photographer! I would highly recommend her. She was a pleasure to work with and had great ideas for photo shots. She was very patient with the younger children and they loved her. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with the photo shots! I would use her in the future for any activities I'd like photographs from. I hope you give her a try, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Joanne for making our day so memorable!Sent on 04/03/2018
