My favorite wedding day moments

 

 

 

1. Emotional Vows

 

This is where we ALL get choked up (I'm not alone, right?!) I so enjoy hearing what unique promise each couple has for the other, when they wipe each other's tears, and how easily they can make each other laugh. There is SO much heart in this portion of the day, I don't know how it couldn't be a fave!

 

 

 

2. Bride & Groom Portraits

 

Portrait time with the couple is hand down my favorite part of the day! This is when we get to laugh uncontrollably, produce something special, and when my couples really get to enjoy their wedding day together! We have SO much fun, so I have to put it on the top of my list.

 

 

 

3. right After the Ceremony

 

Not all photographers pay attention to this moment, but the first few seconds of marriage are so special! This is when the couple gets to hug, laugh, or cry over the moment they realize "we are finally married!" It's emotional and I love documenting this part of the day!

Do you really wantjusta photographer?

Or are you looking for someone who...

  • will become a friend who cares about you + your day and advocates for your deepest desires
  • supports you through all of your decisions and will happily go with the flow whenever things head in a different direction
  • encourages you to think intentionally and celebrate hard
  • loves on your family and guests as if they are their own
  • understands the importance of having those you love captured in your photos
  • takes the time to get to know you so that your photos are more than just about the poses, but true representations of who you two are

What other couples are saying:

“We're floored, stunned, agog, thrilled, teary-eyed, and squealing with joy (well, Mark was. I'm totally stoic.) over the incredible gallery of images from our wedding day. Your photography speaks directly to my heart and the photos you took are among my most prized possessions. You are masterful and humble and lovable and talented.

Literally the best investment we've ever made!"

-Lorelei

"Our photographs mean everything to us and more. The way Joni creates natural movement and turns them into the most touching and intimate photos is incredible. We received so many photos of the *little* moments that truly created such a great day. She truly puts thought into the way she photographs and it really shows!

Like they say, you get what you pay for and I truly believe that. If you want amazing wedding photos, it's reality that you have to expect to pay more. I had so many people say they couldn't believe what I was comfortable with paying for a photographer - those same people are now coming back saying they've never seen such beautiful wedding photos. I think that speaks for itself!"

-Maegan

"Our investment has definitely been worth every penny! I can't recommend Joni highly enough! She is outstanding and beautifully talented. I absolutely love all the photos. I have scrolled them again and again and each time I'm filled with happiness and a joyful feeling of the future. I can't wait to show these photos off for the rest of my life.

We love you, Joni!! Thank you for capturing the magic with your humor and grace.
Forever grateful you were our photographer."

-Kate

Does this sound like the freeing experience you’ve been looking for?

Get in touch today so we can start designing your magical day!

What if we aren't gettingmarriedyet?

Don't fret! I've still got something for you...

Join me for a Wild & Free Session were we enjoy nature, have some fun, and make memories together! This is a popular option among couples who haven't gotten engaged yet but still want to celebrate, recently engaged couples who are excited to announce their commitment, or married couples who want to toast to their time together in this union. This is not a session available for actual wedding ceremonies because I believe your nuptials deserve so much more than just a little photoshoot!

 

This is great for:

- couples photos (especially on vacation;)

- engagement photos (don't skip celebrating this!)

- honeymoon photos (fun in the sun!)

- Anniversary sessions (and not just the big ones, like 5 or 10 years!)

- bridal sessions (didn't love your wedding photos? Let's have a redo and get a second life out of that dress!)

 

Pricing starting at $1,000

 

Are you ready for the very last piece to the

wild & free

experience?

Wild & Free Boudoir

Do you want to feel free? Liberated? One with nature? This is for you!

I've set out to create an experience that combats the critical body image messages we see so often.

Join me out in nature where you will have complete control over what you wear (or don't wear), dance on a mountaintop in your skivvies (turns out that's really fun), and release all of that negative energy.

I want to hear from you today!

Fill out the form below and I'll be in touch as soon as possible!
