Hello, friends! My name is Joanna Carina, and I’m a Minneapolis wedding, engagement and portrait photographer. My background is in photography as well as design. I like to think of myself as a visual storyteller. My focus is simple: to preserve your story artfully and authentically.


~ I have over twenty years of photography, art direction and design experience, which is evidenced in everything from my photographic compositions, posing, locations and lighting, to the design and production of my artisan heirlooms.

~ I’m a Scorpio. My art and my life are influenced by my passionate and intuitive nature.

~ I’m adventurous. I love hiking through the rocky outback of Australia, sailing through the karst islands of Thailand and wandering around the mysterious Moai statues of Easter Island.

~ I love tent camping under the stars. My ultimate goal is to explore every National Park in the country.

~ My work and articles have been featured on several blogs and publications including The Knot, Minnesota Bride, The Luxe Pearl, Rustic Wedding Chic, Fab You Bliss, Artfully Wed, Borrowed & Blue, Midwest Bride, Reverie Gallery, Glamour & Grace, Elegant Wedding Magazine, and many more. Check out my most recent work on my blog!

~ I am honored to have earned membership with other world-renowned photographers in several curated organizations such as Best of Wedding Photography, Fearless Photographers and The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.

~ I treasure my together-time with my husband and two sweet (and ridiculously rambunctious) kids.

I’d love to learn more about how I can help you, so please contact me soon. I would love to create artful images that capture your heart!
