I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Victoria but fell in love with photography when I moved to Alberta almost 9 years ago. I grew up in Kelowna, B.C so my heart will always belong to the Okanagan but I appreciate Alberta’s unique beauty, and I’m always scouting for new locations. I LOVE a good sunset session….give me all of that golden light! I’m also a mother to two wild kiddos, a dog mom and a wife. I enjoy world traveling, biking, hiking, finding new coffee spots and of course, travelling back to BC to visit friends and family.
My clients often describe my sessions as doing a fun photo session with a good friend! My goal is to always make my couples feel comfortable by having relaxed and easy going sessions to capture the nature of your relationship.
“We could not have been luckier to find Joanna to photograph our engagement and wedding. Being in front of the camera isn’t always easy but Joanna made us laugh and feel comfortable the entire time. She worked so hard to capture the most amazing moments and went above and beyond on the big day. All of her pictures were stunning. We can’t thank her enough, or recommend her enough. She is kind, professional and works incredibly hard! Thank you, Joanna, for giving us memories to last a lifetime! We can’t wait to work with her again soon!”

“Joanna is more than what we could have asked for in a photographer! As a couple that had never taken part in a professional photoshoot, we were naturally quite nervous. We did not know what to expect but we had a good feeling about Joanna from the moment we met her, so we knew we were in good hands. Joanna does such an incredible job making sure that you are not only comfortable in front of the camera but also having fun. She has so many tips and tricks to keep you laughing the entire time. It honestly felt like we were doing a photoshoot with a good friend that has known us for years. She isn’t afraid to get right in there to get the right poses and she goes the extra mile to get an incredible shot. Even if it means going into the bush in the pouring rain. We highly recommend Joanna for anyone looking for a photographer and we cannot wait for her to capture our wedding day!”

“If you want your special day to be even more special, look no further than Joanna! Joanna was so amazing to work with, understanding, and was able to document our wedding perfectly. I am forever grateful she was able to capture the day with my loved ones and made sure to take specific pictures we had requested. Her professionalism and punctuality made our wedding day stress-free as we were on a tight timeline being a traditional Asian wedding and she nailed all our timelines. We would 100% recommend Joanna to photograph your milestone events, you won’t be disappointed!”
