J.Poole Photography

Hi friends!  My name is Joanna Poole.  I would love to give a big thank you to Basic Invite for giving me the opportunity to share what I do.  I am a wedding photographer located in the tiny town of Hermitage, AR.  While it may be tiny, I love living here.  It's quiet and the people are nice.  I have four kiddos and I feel safe letting them ride their bikes around town.  I love to sit on my porch at night and listen to the quiet, well with the exception of a few dogs barking.

In 2008, I had a simple little Kodak point and shoot camera.  While on vacation, it was stolen.  I made the decision then that my next camera would be a "good" camera.  Sure enough, in January of 2009 I bought my first DSLR.  A Nikon D90.  I was in love from the get-go.  What started out as having a camera to capture my children, has turned into a full fledged business.  While I do photograph families and little ones, my main focus is the wedding industry.  I shoot mainly in Arkansas, but I don't mind traveling at all.  My photography style is lifestyle and natural light photography.  I love to incorporate movement into my work.

Weddings are my absolute favorite.  To be able to capture everything that goes on during the whole day is an amazing thing for me.  To get to see a dad see his daughter for the first time after she puts on her wedding dress is indescribable.   And to work with a couple that is so in love that they can't help but smile when they see each other is a dream come true.  I love my job!  I may not have picked it, but it certainly picked me and boy, am I glad it did.
