When it comes time for portraits, I switch roles, to director, reacting from the ques of the couple, and merely help to mold a moment, an exchange, or a kiss. Read less

Planning my daughter's Yosemite wedding from Michigan was challenging. We found Joleen Willis on Wedding Wire and found her reviews to be good and her web site showed a very artist, romantic and modern take on wedding photography. We knew we wanted someone who would capture the details and the emotions of the day. In my first phone conversation with Joleen I felt that she could do just that. She was perfect! The engagement session was absolutely fabulous. I had a difficult time choosing which photos to order. The day of the wedding, Joleen was at the site from 9 am to 9 pm, unbelievable. She followed the entire flow of the day from details, getting ready pics, ceremony, groups photos, dinner dancing... yet never felt intrusive, but instead was part of the event. Plus she provided a day after shoot in Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point. I have totally loved every pic she has shared so far through her blog and cannot wait to see the final pictures. Thank you Joleen, you have a great future in your work.

Joleen is the best ever!! She is super sweet and a lot of fun to work with. We are so happy that Joleen was kind enough to travel such a far distance to spend time with us on our wedding day. She is a fantastic photographer, who takes beautiful pictures. If you do not pick Joleen as your wedding photographer, then your wedding pictures will only be second best.
