hi, I'm Johanna!

your louisville-based

<<Wedding + Portrait>>


here are my values

I love seeing people shine in the images we create together. here are my values:


Kindness: I believe that kindness makes the world go round, and with it come other positive values like generosity, helpfulness, equity, and professional courtesy. it is SO important to me that you feel valued and are treated fairly, no matter what your background or lifestyle. From planning your session to receiving your images, kindness will play a central role in our experience together.


Transparency: I value open communication with my clients throughout the planning process, during our session, and beyond. Feel free to contact me to see if we're a good fit!


Adventure: photography is not just a clock-in, clock-out situation. I FREAKING LOVE IT. I treat every session, wedding, or event like a new adventure, and even when returning to the same venue or photographing my 100th wedding, I promise to capture your event uniquely and unlike anyone else's.


Positivity: if your wedding day gets stressful or something doesn't go according to plan, I promise to infuse positivity into your day by being flexible, patient, and helpful in any way I can.

I'm johanna, your Louisville-based wedding + senior portrait photographer

>> kind reviews <<

We moved up our wedding due to the difficulty of planning during a pandemic and just wanting to be married. The photographer was the only thing we wanted to guarantee we booked, and what we got with Johanna was beyond our wildest dreams. She was 100% on board for everything we wanted to get photographed, going through every member of our large families, getting photos of candid moments, doing whatever she needed to in order to get the photos we wanted. Words can't describe how much we adored her and how happy we are with our photos.alex + amber"everything we dreamed of and more"
"Johanna Elise of Frames + Letters Photography is bursting with positivity...As a world traveler, she draws inspiration from far-flung places and infuses the spirit of exploration and discovery into her dreamy portrait sessions. Her work gets to the root of what makes your relationship special, and we love seeing the sense of authenticity and intimacy she is able to impart!" - PeerSpace named one of Louisville's top engagement photographers
"LOVE LOVE LOVEEE Frames and Letters Photography.
I am just now finishing up my senior year at New Albany High School and Johanna was so fantastic. She 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. She oversaw great prices that you won’t find at any other studio with high quality pictures and cards and announcements! I would highly recommend her!
