"My husband and I hired Jo to shoot our engagement party in January. Jo was an absolute professional from the start. She was timely and thorough with her responses and made time to look and discuss suggestions for photography styles and ideas. Jo was extremely professional and friendly during the party. She made sure to include everyone in pictures as well as organizing anything in the background that may interfere with a beautiful picture!
We were so happy with how our pictures turned out and with her editing work. We loved working with Jo and already recommended her to several family members and friends!"

"It is my pleasure to be writing this testimonial for Joanna , who is my go to family photographer.
Joanna is an exceptionally talented photographer who is an absolute dream to work with. She is 150% reliable, patient, humble, considerate, resourceful, captures every single detail, and stays positive no matter what happens. She is also an excellent communicator and has a wonderfully charming sense of humour that my children love about her. She gets very involved and takes an abundance amount of photos. Planned or natural, every single picture is beautiful in its own way. She makes sure everyone is included in each picture.
I am very big on capturing my families special moments (birthdays, baptism etc) and I wouldn’t have anyone else take those pictures. She has now become one of the family, everyone always says to me, please tell me you hired Joanna ...my answer, of course!!! We are very excited for her capture another important event for us this winter.
Thanks Joanna for everything you do!! You’re the best!"

“When I got engaged and my fiance and I were looking to find someone to do the photography for our wedding, being someone who doesn't particularly like "posed" photos, I found the work by a lot of photographers was not really along the lines of what I knew I wanted my photos to look like - I tend to like candid photos. I knew I would need a few photos with family that were staged, but overall I wanted my wedding photos to be more candid, showing our guests having fun, or an intimate moment caught between my husband and I. I immediately thought to ask Joanna, who has that creative touch I was looking for.
We had our first meeting many months before my wedding; Joanna came to my house to show me some of the more recent work she had done for another friend's wedding and other various photography to give me a good sense of how she works with her subjects. Joanna went though some of the raw photos and then showed me those photos edited and immediately I was sold. We had a meeting following that where we worked out the day's schedule and every step of the way Joanna was very attentive to detail, planning for things I hadn't even thought of. I had a great sense of relief that we were in very good hands.
On the day of our wedding, Joanna was amazing!! She had kept saying to me that I wouldn't even know she was there, and she would ensure everything went off without a hitch and she absolutely did. When you're a bride, the day is chaotic.. but Joanna made sure to make the time spent taking photos with the bridal party a really fun experience, and she captured all of the most beautiful moments of our day. When I look at the photos from our wedding day, I feel as though I'm able to relive it all over again, and from many different perspectives... I have fantastic photos of all our friends and family as well as many beautiful photos of my husband and I that we will cherish for a lifetime.”

"I had the pleasure of having Joanna photograph our June 2015 wedding at The Old Mill in Toronto. From the first meeting we had to discuss the wedding Joanna was an absolute dream to work with. She would send me links with ideas for fun wedding party shots and constantly kept up a flow of creative and imaginative ideas for the big day.
We did a walk through at the venue a few weeks before the wedding and it was amazing watching Joanna's energy as she became inspired by all of the funphoto op spots. It was contagious and by the end of the meeting my husband and I were more excited than ever for the wedding day to come.
On the morning of the wedding Joanna showed up bright and early to capture every single step involved before we said "I do". All the stress melted away as she joked around and captured all of the tiny details and moments that could have been lost in the busyness of the day. From the hair and makeup portion of the girls' day to the bowties and video gaming of the boys' she captured amazing shots every step of the way.
Once we arrived at the venue she took charge and found a way to capture every single shot we had discussed during our walk through, even shots I had since forgotten about suggesting! She nailed the group shots, solo shots, family shots, every moment of the ceremony, all the way down to the crazy dancing of our hilarious relatives. She truly worked her butt off and we could not have been happier with the results.
I cannot say enough good things about this fantastic photographer. I highly recommend her for any couple hoping for someone who can perfectly capture the magic of their special day."

“Joanna Katchutas photographed our wedding on July 4th, 2015, and we couldn't of been happier with our choice of photographer! Joanna was deeply committed to ensuring we had the best photos, evident in how she would often meet with us before the wedding to discuss our creative vision. During the wedding she was able to capture and incorporate the details of our woodland, forest theme in both the decor, guests, and family members. The vision we had meticulously discussed before hand, really came through in the final photos. Even after the wedding, Joanna remains committed to ensuring we have the best possible final edits of our wedding and is readily available to suit our needs. I would certainly recommend Joanna as a wedding photographer.”

"We hired Joanna to take photos at our son's baptism. It was a really hot day in June and she did such a wonderful job of getting the entire family together and organized for the various shots that we wanted. She was also able to capture all of the precious candid moments during the ceremony which we will cherish forever."
