Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

I am a fun-loving, adventure-having natural light photographer from the Pacific Northwest. I love to travel as much as I love sitting at home binging FRIENDS, Parks and Rec, or the Big Bang Theory! I'm obsessed with peppermint chai lattes - with almond milk, fruit snacks, and comedies that make you belly laugh!

While I also love shooting families and portraits, I LIVE for your WEDDING DAY! I do all I can to make sure that this is the most special day of your life, that your love is captured in timeless romantic images and all the details, emotions, and little moments of the day add up to tell your unique love story.But most of all, I LOVE connecting with my clients and the relationships I build with them!

My story

Hi There! I'm Joni

This is what I do! Come along with me behind the scenes and see what it's like to do a session with me!

I married my incredibly loving, supportive, and goofy husband, Anthony in 2011. We are a blended family with 4 amazing kiddos - Arika, Gabe, Jordan, and Addie, . We also have two lazy, fluffy kitties - Jack + Charlie!

I have a serious sweet tooth! Lemon meringue pie and Ferrero Rocher chocolates are my most FAVORITE! 
Honestly though, anything -especially with chocolate is a win. Though who doesn't LOVE a nice big bowl of fresh berries on a summer day?? Sorry - I LOVE food haha!

I love giving back through my business! One of the most rewarding was when I held a free senior portrait session day for foster kids that included hair + make up and pizza. I have also hosted several mini session events where all proceeds were donated to local battered women's shelters and the children's ministries within our church. It feels amazing to be a part of something bigger than myself, giving back and doing good in my community.

Capturing precious moments, like a father seeing his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time while she dabs tears from his cheek, is one of many that you'll treasure forever. I'll most likely be crying with you right behind my camera!  

Photos are absolutely priceless and the relationships I gain through my business are just as sweet. I have walked through life with so many of my clients now, photographing so many monumental moments in their lives and watching their families grow.
I am here to laugh with you, cry with you, celebrate with you, and to give you those precious moments to treasure!

I Believe
