natural beauty in a natural light

It's beauty that captures your attention;
personality which captures your heart. ~Anonymous ~

With camera work that reveals both the elegance of the natural world and the richly expressive personal moments of the wedding ceremony and celebration, Joanna Tano’s photography captures both your attention and your heart.

Careful not to intrude on the wedding ritual, Joanna becomes an almost invisible presence whose aperture opens to the heightened joy of the participants. Working as much as possible with natural light, and with a keen sense of composition, Joanna honors the mood of each moment, unafraid to capture movement and emotion. Her photojournalistic style allows her to create evocative storybooks and slideshows, in which a succession of spontaneous images tells the story of the wedding.

We love working with Joanna Tano Photography for our weddings and events. Not only is she professional and talented, but our clients love working with her!

Mahalo for all your lovely work Joanna!

Pls save time on selecting wedding photographers and take my advice to go with Joanna. I have carefully browsed all the work by various photographers the Four seasons resort had recommended and Joanna's work had made my decision an easy one for one of the most important days of my life. You will be completely at ease and looking beautiful and natural on photos even if you are a nervous bride. Make sure to do some sunset shots - my husband and I fell in love with the beautiful maui sunset (better than santorini!) she captured in the background.

Joanna is the nicest, most laid back, and professional person I have ever met! This was my first time every being married or having to find a photographer. She over exceeded my expectations. Her work is absolutely breath taking. I get tears in my eyes every time I look at our album. She captured our day just beautifully. Joanna is very knowledgeable about the islands, we had lost of questions and she was more than happy to help us. She arrived on time and even stayed late because we were driving to multiple locations to capture the perfect sunset. I can't say enough great things about her. You will not find anyone better!

We used Joanna as our photographer and she was simply amazing and made us feel so comfortable. We got some really good shoots and she took us to a beach for some great pics and we can't wait to see the finished product. She was very easy to work with as we had a destination wedding so we communicated mostly through email and phone. The minute we met her we felt at ease and excited to begin capturing our wedding and reception. If you need a photographer for anything while your in Maui we highly recommend Joanna! Thanks for creating and capturing everything on our special day.

We highly recommend working with Joanna Tano. We were impressed with the photos we received for our wedding, all were amazing and returned shortly after the wedding day. Not only was she easy to work with leading up to the wedding but she also made the day of experience stress free and enjoyable. Joanna was able to capture every moment of our wedding that has helped us relieve the memory today and forever. It was nice that she was timely and took pictures of those family and friends we had requested. Her creativity stands out and made every moment look beautiful!

I had some ideas for our shoot, but she created art even more magical and precious than I had envisioned, and I will cherish these portraits for a lifetime. Thank you so much Joanna!

We are extremely happy that we were able to book Joanna Tano for our wedding. She was very professional - but had a very relaxed presence, which made it comfortable for us to be ourselves in front of her. She was excellent about capturing key moments throughout the day without us even knowing she was around. She was also incredibly quick at posting our photos online for us to share with family and friends - which was fantastic since many of our friends and family weren't able to attend our destination wedding. Overall we loved Joanna - partly because we were thrilled with the pictures from our wedding day, but also because she was so easy and accomodating to work with. We would highly recommend her to any bride looking for a fantastic photographer!

Some of our photos were even featured on the style me pretty blog for destination weddings: http://www.stylemepretty.com/destination-weddings/2012/05/07/kauai-wedding-at-na-aina-kai-botanical-gardens-by-joanna-tano-photography/

Joanna was amazing! She came recommended by our wedding planner, and photographed both our engagement session( in the beautiful Paia at her suggestion) as well as our wedding at the Haiku Mill in Maui. Joanna was so sweet, complimentary, personable, and just a pleasure to work with. Not only did she make my husband and I feel super comfortable when normally reticent in front of a camera, but she captured both of those occassions in their most beautiful and organic state. We were beyond thrilled when we saw the finished product. Photography was the #1 most important investment for our wedding day, and what I was most discerning about in my search for a vendor. Well, I picked the right person- I will always be grateful for the way she captured the natural beauty, pristine setting, and every emotion that was experienced of those memories. And, a few months after the wedding her lovely photos made it onto a Style Me Pretty feature! So thanks again Joanna, and if we ever do a vow renewal ceremony in Maui we know exactly who to call. Highly recommended!!

The only feedback I could give would be that you were more assertive with the wedding party in getting pictures taken. I also forgot to put the entire wedding party on my list of pictures to be taken, it would have been great if you had mentioned that option before ending the night.

Joanna was professional, friendly, and very comfortable to work with. We loved our photos and look forward to returning to Maui sometime (hopefully) in the near future so she can take photos of our future family.

Of all of the vendors I dealt with, Joanna was the most responsive and professional. Beyond her stellar professionalism, her photos were stunning and truly captured the feelings and emotion behind the day. In my opinion, a great photographer is one who fades into the background. We rarely noticed her presence at times and those shots ended up being the best candid photos. I can't thank her enough!

We had a destination wedding in Maui, HI. My husband and I are from Arizona. Finding a great photographer was the most important aspect of our wedding planning because it is something we would have forever. I spent several months researching photographers online, and never was quite sold on any of them. Luckily, I came across Joanna's website on a florists blog. Immediately, I knew she was the one. I sent her an email and shortly there-after, she responded and asked if we could speak on the phone. Her professionalism and willingness to speak to me made me feel so comfortable with my decision. She even contacted me on Facebook. No other vendor I contacted took that step to get to know exactly what it was we were envisioning for one of the most special days of our life. Joanna went above and beyond every expectation we had. The pictures were absolutely breath taking. She captured the emotion of the day and the beauty of us and our surroundings. Joanna was incredibly flexible and allowed us to split up the three hour time into two days. We shot the day of our wedding and the morning after. She even took the time to go beyond and gave us unlimited photographs. I swear we have about 600 images from our wedding day all on a CD that she mailed to us, edited, shortly after the wedding. Joanna is no fuss and she doesn't nickle and dime you like several photographers out there. She even made a slide show of our images that played along to a Jason Mraz song that was so precious. Above all, Joanna is an incredibly happy and positive person, who knows her craft and constantly seems to be learning more every day. I 100% recommend her to anyone planning on getting married in Maui. My Husband and I could not have been happier with our experience with Joanna and the pictures that she captured for us.

Joanna did an awesome job. She was recommended to us via, my wife Kelly's cousin and we were not disappointed. Her customer service, ease to speak with, and variety of photos were only a few of the positives, among the many, that will come with Joanna's photography. Both Kelly and I thank Joanna everytime we look at our wonderful wedding photos and hope that we will be able to use her services again for another special moment that both of us know she will be able to capture. 5 stars all the way.

From the moment I first spoke to her on the phone to the day of our wedding, I had absolutely no doubt that she would be amazing. Our friends and family rave about her photography to this day and I will forever treasure the beautiful moments that she captured. Thank you, Joanna!

Joanna was a wonderful photographer to work with for our wedding. I put her up to a challenging task - my husband HATES to be photographed and really only wanted candid "action" shots...I on the other hand, wanted some nice shots of the two of us, and needed some obligatory group/family shots as well. I also didn't want my photographer to be the focal point of the wedding, and super noticeable to the guests during the ceremony. Joanna was really willing to work with us on all of this, and kept the photo sessions as pain-free as possible for my husband. She took some wonderful candids that my husband really appreciated as well. Joanna has a great eye and captured some really spectacular moments - we were both very pleased with how the photos came out and she took so many good ones that we are still trying to choose which to put in our album!! I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone - she was a pleasure to work with and yielded great results!

I've worked as a photographer myself (mostly on film sets), and half my close friends are international photographers and cinematographers; so I have a high standard for photographs, and I have to say Joanna is fantastic! My wife and I spent a lot of time researching photographers before we left, and Joanna clearly stands out from the rest.

Her creativity and style show through in her stills instantly, and gave our wedding photographs a unique touch which stand out from the other "standard" wedding pictures we've seen.

Not only are Joanna's photos amazing, but she is great to work with, fast and most importantly - she's discrete. She took hundreds of beautiful photographs on our wedding day, but was never disruptive, commanding, or impatient with relatives slow to assemble with group photos. Both her and her assistant carefully made sure to avoid being in the background of other peoples' photos and were in-observable during the ceremony, which allowed us to enjoy the special moments.

If you're at all concerned about getting good wedding pictures, make sure you hire Joanna, it's probably the safest wedding decision you'll make.
