wedding + senior
portrait photographer 

I truly believe I have the BEST job! It brings me so much joy to create fun and emotional images that take you back to the happiest times in your life.

Being a photographer allows me to appreciate the joy of freezing time for a photo while also allowing the moment to unfold naturally.

When I'm not taking pictures, I also love to be outside and take my two Aussies to the dog park! You can also find me planning my next trip, catching up on the latest Spanish language novela on Netflix or salsa dancing with friends!

LOVE LOVE LOVEEE Frames and Letters Photography. Johanna was very fun and easy to work with. She let me be very creative with my photos and helped me find the perfect place to take my senior photos.
I highly recommend her!

Johanna markets herself as a wedding and senior portrait photographer, but her skills stretch well beyond those domains. she's a joy to work with too!
