I'm so happy you're here. I'm a wedding photographer and I'm also a hopeless romantic whose as obsessed with your wedding as you are.
Most of my work is candid, with a little extra direction if you need it. I know I did on my wedding day. I want you to look like rock stars on your day so I'm always going the extra mile, making sure you're having the time of your lives because that is the secret recipe for amazing images - nothing really replaces a genuine smile.
I have amazing memories of my own wedding day (2011) but lots of the memories start to fade after a while (you won't think they will on the day but trust me). Looking back on my own wedding photos, I feel really transported back to getting ready with my friends in my old house, seeing my beloved dog there, and reliving the excitement every time I open my album. That's what I want for you too.
Hi, I'm joanne
I'm a wife, mum and friend who is based near Torquay in Geelong but I travel anywhere.
I think weddings are so unique when you think about it. All that planning and prep for one day - but wow what an amazing day that will forever be one of your most cherished!
I love getting to know my couples - you are what will make your day unique! Your personalities, quirks and style will be celebrated and I can't wait to document all the joy and love in the room.
My background story
he joy of your day is what makes my job so special. I think its the best job in the world for happy vibes.
A Look into my

I love flicking through photographs, looking at old black and white photographs, making prints and books of special occasions, and looking at my photo wall at home. I love how special an image can become when printed.
I love prints
My Favorite Things
2 / 3
I'm very fond of Pomeranians (and all dogs). Something about their energy and their quirky personalities. Floofballs!
I was late to catch the travelling bug, but now I love to go somewhere new even just in Victoria. I can't wait until my son is old enough to make memories on some travel adventures.
My favourite city other than Melbourne is Paris.
Exploring new places
GET OUT OF HERE! Holy Moly!!! They are the best pics I have ever seen. We are so happy with the photos from our wedding day. Everything Joanne captured felt like 'us'. Even our bridal party wanted photo time to go longer because we were having so much fun.
Joanne's professionalism, knowledge of the best locations and ways for us to pose were unrivalled. Our Photos turned out beautifully and our guests couldn't stop commenting on the quality of our photos. My husband and I wanted golden hour photos and Jo absolutely make it happen. We really recommend Jo as a photographer to everyone - she's so personable and so friendly as well.
We loved having Joanne as part of our wedding and our photos just speak for themselves. From helping us with the best photo locations, to arranging a rain back up plan, we just felt so taken care of. Joanne also gives the best advice - we had no idea how long some things would take and were so glad to take on board her suggestions to allow a little longer for different things. We love our images and look through them often.
