Why it's important to invest in photography:

Flowers will wilt, the music will stop playing, and the table runners will be stained with candle wax by the end of the night.  Photos aren't just things, they're actual memories. They are there to keep on giving for 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, and even 60 years down the road. One day you'll be rockin' on the front porch with your sugar, sweet tea in hand (or a martini if you're anything like my own grandma), and your grandbabies gathered around, looking back on one of the most important days of your life. An album filled with the sweetest, most hilarious, and precious moments of your day. That's what I want to give you.

When you invest in a photographer you love, you're investing in the fact they will bring bright + happy energy, will be in your corner all day, make you feel comfortable, and get along with your friends and family and will deliver photos that tell your honest + unique story that you can connect with for decades.

Client Love Letter

"It is hard to put into words how wonderful Johanna is. From the beginning I felt her warmth and joy even through a Zoom call. I felt like we were friends that had known each other already.

She made every effort to make our special day as easy, fun, and full of love and laughs as possible. She’s very professional and sent our photos back in record time! We couldn’t be happier with choosing Johanna for our wedding and we look forward to the next photo shoots we can book with her."

Absolutely! I've traveled (mostly solo) to 20+ countries now, so it's safe to say I'm comfortable getting myself from point A to point B- even if that's the other side of the world!

help! I'm awko taco in front of the camera

You don't need to have any experience in front of the camera to get beautiful photos with me. That's what I'm here for. :) But, there are ways you can prep! I love incorporating elements of you/your relationship into the photoshoot. What makes you feel like you're in your element? Are you into longboarding? Is hiking your jam? Playing guitar? Hanging out at a local coffee shop? If you're doing something you love, you'll feel that much more comfortable. I'm all about creating happy, safe, and silly environment where you feel natural- That way, we can create images that are authentic and unique to you. Additionally, you should know you're not just being shoved in awkward old-school prom poses with me. I'll give you prompts that help you ease into super cute, candid shots!
