Fresh and Fun Wedding, Boudoir, and Family Photos by Vernon Photographer, Jo Johnson
I’m not gonna blow smoke up your ass and pretend that I shoot weddings because I’m in love with love. No, I’m in love with capturing as many real moments as I can on your wedding day. I’ve been shooting weddings for 10 years and I’ve shot it all – excitement, laughter, tears, joy, hilarity, anticipation, and, yes, love. I don’t want to just shoot the gooey moments (even though they are obviously radtastical), I want to be there to shoot all of it, so you can look back on your wedding pics for the rest of your life and instantly feel everything you felt on the day you got married.
Boudoir photography is one of the most amazing ways for a woman to learn how to celebrate herself. We, women, spend too much of our time comparing ourselves to others, focusing on our flaws and telling ourselves stories of how much better we will be after we do a bunch of stuff to change. We all do it and sometimes we need a good metaphorical slap upside the head reminder to be less hard on ourselves and look at our bodies and bits and say, “Damn, girl! You are gorgeous!” I live to figuratively slap people with their boudoir photos and remind them to chill out on the negative body talk.
As for families… well, families are crazy and chaotic and challenging. Our families are full of love and hate and everything in between, but through it all, we learn from each other and teach each other how to enjoy the wild ride. Family photos are THE BEST way to take a snapshot of where you are at – to capture all the chaos and love and hysterical giggles or pouty faces- before everything changes in a blink. If you want to laugh until your cheeks hurt and also grab some quiet, beautiful, quiet gooey moments with your family (including your pets), hit me up for a session. We will make magic together!
