    I was beyond impressed with the expertise JoAnna brought to the table. She shot my wedding in October and she was able to capture every aspect of my day from start to finish. We had a gloomy, cold day however JoAnna managed to capture the most gorgoues shots and the end results were outstanding. It was amazing how fast she was too, even the wedding party was impressed. She wasn't afraid to keep us moving to get the best possible angles and backgrounds. At one point we thought she was going to jump in the pond to get what she wanted! I wouldn't put it past her. I didn't have to worry about getting that perfect one as I knew she would handle everything. It was one less thing I had to worry about. My images came back to me so quickly it blew me away. I also received a few teezers the day after the wedding. I would highly recommend J. Castaneda Photography and I will definately use her again. Thank you JoAnna for making my day even more special than it already was. Thanks to you I have it all documented and will look back on it knowing it was perfect!

    We worked with JoAnna for our son's 1 year photo shoot. The entire experience from start to finish was top notch. JoAnna was a pleasure to work with, had great patience while shooting and the finished product not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We will be sure to use JoAnna again for all our family portrait needs.

About this pro

I'm an artist before I'm a photographer. I'm visually driven so my work appears to have a contemporary and journalistic approach. Capturing the special moments with emotion and edge are some of the things that make my work unique. I feel privileged to be able to see another human being make another human being cry out of pure love, it's one of the more magical things I get to witness. A front row seat to some of the most vulnerable moments between two people who are madly in love. I love my job.
