McKinley Photography Wedding Photographer



McKinley Photography

My name is Joanna and I consider myself to be a natural light wedding photographer. I love working outdoors and showing what the perspective is in distinctively different ways.  I am a mother of 9 and have been married to my childhood sweetheart for too long to count.  I live in beautiful California where I travel everywhere to take not only wedding photography but newborn and formal events as well.  I do shoot everything but want to specialize in wedding photography and newborn.  We are newborn certified and I have a Bachelor's degree in Photography as well.  As much as I know there are many wedding photographers out there I want to be a different kind of wedding photographer.  I want to be different. I want to photograph love as love. That is why I am showing off this beautiful same-sex wedding in this post.

This was such a fun and difficult photo to capture.  There were so many family members that wanted to share into the joy.  We got them all in and when it was all said and done it turned out to show so much love that it was worth the time capturing it.

 These photos were just so intricate to the love that was shown in this wedding, the candles that were lit on each table, the rings that were given and the beautiful little organization of the congratulations cards that were waiting the brides all written by the children.

The vows that they wrote to each other were so emotional that everyone cried. This couple had been together for 30 years before they were able to marry legally.  This just shows the power of love in any relationship which is what we want to show in our photography.

This is the reason why I want to be a wedding photographer, is to capture things like this. The moment that we all want to see.. the love that a couple shares when they are finally married after waiting however long they have to wait to be united in this way.  We are open to any weddings and photograph love we don't care what kind it is.
