About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Our work stands out from others because we truly connect with our clients way before we even pull out our camera. I love chatting to get to know you and find out what matters to you most. It's more about a person, rather than just the lens.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

For some, a wedding photographer is about making tons of money and dealing with clients they hate behind closed doors. Not me. I gain new friends. Meet people who I may never have met. And I am smack in the middle of everything. To me, it's the best seat in the house.

    I may be a little biased since Jina has worked with me since I was 8 months pregnant (she took our maternity pictures, baby shower pictures, newborn photos, 11 month old photos, 1st birthday party and now our 23 month pictures). She is the best ever!!! All of the pictures that she has taken are phenomenal. Her attention to detail with the close-up shots of our son are superb. We thank Jina so much for capturing the details of our little guy. The lighting is perfect. The time it takes for editing and returning your photos is quick! She is extremely pleasant to work with. We are definitely happy to call Jina FAMILY!! Hiring Joni Heart Photographer to capture your special occasion will leave you completely satisfied.

    The day of the wedding the printer didn't work and my guests were told they would recieve prints at the end of the night which they didn't because by the time they actually printed anything, all my guests had left. I was notified of the situation at the end of the night and instead of offering at least a partial refund, I was told my guests would be able to download the images to print for free. I had to negotiate a better solution as it wasn't right to have my guests pay to print these out when I had already paid for a certain amount of prints in the package. Plus I was already guaranteed a free download of the images, so I could have easily just forwarded the images to my guests to print themselves if I wanted to go that route. Anyway, I wasn't very pleased with the service. I understand things happen but I would've liked a better offer as recompense.

    Jina has a real gift for capturing memories, not just moments. I've now hired her twice and will be working with her again on a project that I referred her to, because her work is simply exceptional. I've had occasion to work with other photographers, and there are many that are talented, but I like Jina because she takes the time to understand how to tell the story of what's being captured in pictures. She's my photographer. She should be yours, too.

    Jina Wilson has great customer service and is truly a pleasure to work with. I am over the top happy with choosing her for my vow renewal. Even my guests were ranting and raving about her and was impressed with her execution and on edge waiting to see the pictures she took. She surely did not disappoint us at all. Looking at the pictures made us relive the event and the joy we felt on our special day. I would definitely recommend this lady and her team for any event you are having.

    There is nothing better than a photographer knowing your love story and being able to capital on your love through their lens. Thank you to the entire Joni Heart crew for a wonderful engagement session.
  • Tatiana & Justin B. Aug 17, 2015
    Jina, the head photographer of Joni Heart was THE BEST part of our wedding! She was amazing... She was very attentive and captured my every picture request with a smile on her face. We were off schedule all day and that didn't stop her. If your looking for someone hardworking, determined, and with an eye for a great shot Joni Heart Photograpghy should be your first choice. I would recommend her to anyone. I hope to work with her again soon.

    Lawrence and I LOVE the sample shots! They look good. We are actually a good looking couple. Who knew?! LOL! I did have fun that day as I have never done that before. We are confident that our wedding photos will be amazing.

    Jina was the photographer for my daughter's wedding in Atlanta. She was very professional, detailed and creative. The day was overcast and it began to rain shortly after her arrival to the event. Jina went above and beyond by photographing the bridal party and family while she was standing in the rain! Jina was under an umbrella and the wedding party was in a covered area but she got the job done. The images that Jina has sent us are beautiful so far. I would highly recommend Jina!

    Jina was nothing short of amazing! Because our ceremony was so small, we didn't even plan to have a professional photographer. But my mother found Jina on thumbtack at the 11th hour, and I'm so glad that she did! We've only seen a sneak peak of our wedding photos so far, and we can not WAIT to see more. Jina is extremely professional and talented. We weren't very specific with our vision for our wedding other than being full of intimacy and love. She was able to bring it to life in the most magnificent way. Jina has a very pleasant and kind spirit coupled with an artistic eye that was just perfect for our big day. I would *highly* recommend her for your photographic needs.

    Before I called Jina, I reviewed her website and felt good about her work. The reviews there were good also. When I called her, I gained even more respect for her. She is such a caring and thorough professional. Even though she was already booked for another event on the day my wedding was scheduled, she went out of her way to assist me. She personally called colleagues to find out their availability for my day and connected me with another excellent and seasoned photographer. I would certainly refer her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I am member of the Professional Photographers Association, Association for Specialized Media Photographers, and WPPI. I'm constantly refreshing on the many updates of photoshop and always practicing my lighting skills.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My father and sister, Joni. They both taught me that life is short, live it with all your heart, and capture the love for lifelong memories.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common is just offering a neutral ear for venting. I accept phone calls from past brides well past office hours because they are so overwhelmed in the planning process. I can understand, I plan my business, and it can be overwhelming for me too!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I'm proud every wedding where we capture the true essence of the couple. A portrait they can hang on their wall or display in an album.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find someone you connect with. Even if it's not me. Your photographer is a part of your wedding, and if they irk you, you won't like anything they do...no matter what!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish clients knew that this isn't a hobby. I'm not trying to pay off a camera credit card or buy new shoes. I also wish they understood the many people behind the scenes involved. It's not just me, I have a true complete team of people.
