The woman behind the camera

Joanna Armstrong


For all my life I have been obsessed with anything and everything related to photography. I could spend hours playing with all the cameras around the house and for almost every birthday and holiday the first thing on my list was a new camera.

I learned at an early age the importance of photos. The ability to freeze a moment to look back on whenever you want is something special and those images should be cherished for all your life, which is exactly what I hope to give to you.

NC or Anywhere Beyond

Whether it's deep in the mountains, ocean side, or eating pizza in Manhattan - you deserve to get married however you want to. I’ll be sure to help you plan and save those beautiful memories for you and your loved ones to look back on for years to come.

Jo was AMAZING every step of the way! Pictures were beautiful, pricing more than fair. We got a ton of comments on how kind she is and how great our pictures turned out."

engagement couple

My fiancé and I had our engagement photos taken by Joanna, and she is MAGICAL. Her prompts for different poses were really accessible, and she kept the process light and well-paced. Also, she was extremely flexible when we added a request for film photos (a last minute decision) and she knocked those out of the park, too. Highly recommend her, not only for her skill behind the lens, but also because of her professional demeanor: she's exactly the kind of efficient, adaptable and easygoing photographer you want helping you, especially if you find photo shoots a little nerve-wracking (like we did!)"
