About Us

Hello there! We are Johnny & Joanna.  Husband & wife. Best friends.

We believe in a marriage that lasts and is more beautiful than your wedding day!  We are so passionate about capturing your love story –  it is what gets us up in the morning.  We are a wedding photography business based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Mid-West.  Our loves are traveling, coffee, watching movies & the show ‘Survivor’ (sorry, we’re obsessed), cooking, lazy mornings, and picnics in the spring.

I got my start in photography when I picked up an old camera for my high school photography course.  I had no idea that this would change my life forever.  I was always an artistic person but there was something about capturing life that struck me.  I did not start photographing weddings on a whim.  I knew that this is an extreamly important day in your life and it should be taken seriously.  I had many years of experience photographing people, events, and second shooting other weddings before I started Joanna Day Photography with my husband.

My interest in photography goes back to when I was 13 years old when a friend of my father’s, an award winning photographer, decided to take me under his wing and teach me all about photography.  Being the geek that I am, I loved that photography was a more technical way of creating art.  At least that is how I look at it anyway!  What I love about weddings is all the memories that are being created. I love being able to capture them for you.

Our Approach



We focus on creating art that is a true representation of you & your fiance.  You won’t hear us say, “cheese” or make you do any awkward poses. We are all about natural moments and real smiles.


We LOVE happy people!  Our photos are not fashion-forward or edgy.  We just love good smiles and real hugs. These are your joyful memories and we are here to capture them for you.


We believe in creating photos that you will be proud to share years from now. Our editing style is soft, romantic, and timeless.  Our style mimics film even though we shoot with digital cameras.



Why You Should Book Us:

1.  You’ll get two great photographers.

We are both passionate about creating photos and capturing the best moments.  You won’t get just one lead photographer, you’ll get two.  We both know what we are doing and we trust each other.  We are pretty much like a well oiled machine when it comes to wedding photography.  Together we have over 10 years of experience.

2.  You won’t be stressed.

We work with each and every one of our couples to plan out your day so that everything goes smooth and streamlined. We have a list of questions that we send to our couples 60 days prior to the wedding day.  We will go over the timeline for the day and offer suggestions.  We have a list of common family portraits and you can decide which ones you would like us to take.  We will take care of everything so that when you take your portraits, you will not be stressed! We want this to be a relaxing and enjoyable day for you.

3. You’ll get what you want.

We offer flexible wedding photography options that allow you to only include whatever you absolutely want.  We offer high resolution digital negatives, engagement sessions, prints, albums, canvases, a photo-booth and so much more.

4.  You’ll get your photos quickly.

We believe in delivering your wedding photos to you in a timely manner.  It also takes us time to edit the many hundreds of photos that you will receive!  We deliver full wedding galleries 4 weeks after the wedding. We will blog a sneak peak one week after the wedding and we love to share extra previews on facebook throughout the editing process.
