hi, I'm Johanna!


an adventure-loving wedding and senior portrait photographer based in Louisville, KY who loves capturing the fun and emotional moments you want to remember forever. I love working with down-to-earth people from all backgrounds and walks of life.


Every session is a new adventure, and every person I meet is a future friend - whether you want some cute pics or would rather obsess about our pets, grab an ice cream, talk travel or sip on a refreshing cocktail, I'm all about having a good time and keeping things positive and upbeat.


Anti-discrimination statement: I am committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all people I interact with, both in my personal and professional life.

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"

"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!
