Hello, friends! My name is Joanna Carina, and I’m a Minneapolis wedding, engagement and portrait photographer. With my artistic vision, design sensibility, eye for lighting, and attention to detail, I strive to artfully capture your story.

I approach photography as a blend of fine art and storytelling. Photography should illuminate your life. The real story behind your love isn’t fully illustrated by perfectly posed portraits. It includes the many spontaneous, joyful, passionate and silly moments in between.

Each family is unique. I love to document the personal story of your big day — from the intricate details to the most ecstatic moments; from the biggest laughs to the joyful tears. The day you’ve been dreaming of will live on in artistic, dramatic, etheric storytelling imagery.

Contact me soon! I would love to learn more about how I can help you make images to celebrate your timeless love.

We used Carina Photographics for our engagement and wedding photos and I wish I could give her more stars as she was just fantastic to work with and her work is simply the best I have seen. From the moment we booked her to the final pictures she has been so easy and professional to work with. But what really sold us on her was her abilities to capture the moments on camera, as these pictures were all just stunning and over the top, the kind of pictures you see in high end magazines. Anybody can take pictures, but Joanna has a way of capturing the moment perfectly as every picture was simply breathtaking. We couldn't be happier with our choice In Carina Photographics and I highly recommend her. Thanks so much Joanna, we will have a lifetime of memories to always look back on.

Joanna is the best wedding photographer out there. She captured our wedding with such an artistic flare and intimate feeling. I still stare at all our pictures and find a new favorite every week. We loved working with Joanna so much that we had her take our maternity photos as well as our baby’s newborn photos. Again, she captured the moments beautifully and we will continue to use her as our family photographer to capture all our life moments. THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!!

We had such a fantastic experience with Joanna. She did our engagement and wedding photos and we can't even begin to describe how happy we are with the way they turned out! She was so fun and easy going and she was totally game for anything, even when we told her we wanted to do our engagement photos in a brewery! We knew from our first meeting with her that she was our photographer. She has a great eye and a knack for capturing beautiful lighting. We were also very happy with how quickly she responded to emails and how often she stayed in touch throughout the process. We absolutely love our wedding album and the wall art that we ordered and our parents really love their albums as well. The quality is fantastic and she worked hard to make sure we got our order in time for Christmas, which was much appreciated. We can't wait to work with Joanna again in the future... Thanks again for everything, you are awesome!!

Planning for [our wedding] day was easy with [Joanna of Carina Photographics]. It actually made the rest of our wedding planning easier! We used her checklist to make sure we had everything in order, and when we got together to plan the shots for the day, she had lots of helpful advice about when to do what and when to shoot what. It helped us make a few decisions we were on the fence about. It was nice to use the photo shoot schedule as a framework for planning the rest of the day. Piece of cake.

The big day finally came and Joanna and her assistant were on top of everything. It's clear they've done this many times before because they didn't miss a beat and they certainly didn't miss any photo opportunities. Even the big family group photos went quickly and easily. After that, we just enjoyed ourselves at the ceremony and they just blended in and captured the rest of the evening. Everything went really well.

We didn't have to wait very long at all before we could start looking at our photos online. We were blown away at how stunning the photos were. She is a rare talent and if you can get her for your wedding, you should!

We will use Carina Photographics for all of our photography needs. I don't write many reviews, but Carina is worth it. Everyone should know how great they are!

Such a wonderful experience! Joanna [of Carina Photographics] is great and so kind. She made both of us feel comfortable in front of the camera for our engagement and wedding photos. We have so many wonderful memories captured in our photos. She creates a great relationship by meeting with you several times before the big day. Awesome experience from start to finish!!! The wall canvas and Heirloom albums are beautiful!
