Hi, I'mJonia free-spirit.

I'm known for my constant laughter (seriously, it's constant), flowy dresses, and free-spirited travel habits. Spontaneity, surprises, and meeting new people makes me feel the most alive so, if you ask me, I really think I've landed in the right job. ;)

 

I'm passionate about the environment, veganism, having experiences over things, and ordering dessert. I don't wear makeup, think hand-me-downs are the best, and dig a slow day in the sun.

Why I love elopements

 

 

 

1. It's a much more freeing experience

 

Big, traditional wedding days involve shuffling around from one thing to the next without consideration of what you actually want to do. Elopements give you your freedom back -you don't have to suppress a single whim. This day can be 100% yours, as fluid and free as you want it to be.

 

 

 

2. It's what I can envision for myself

 

Honestly? I photographed big weddings for 10 years. I assumed elopements were an instagram trend, but now I can't see myself getting married any other way. I know I can't be 100% myself in front of gobs of people. I also know that a traditional template for a wedding day feels much too restrictive. I want to feel free on my wedding day.

 

 

 

3. It's easier on the planet

 

So many things get thrown right into the trash after a wedding day, it's painful to even think about it... have you thought about it? I can't even get into into because I'll just get sad. Do me a favor: google how wasteful the average wedding is. Elopements, on the other hand, are super low impact which makes my hippie heart happy.

Why do we need full coverage of our day?

 

I believe that your elopement day is just as worthy of full documentation as any large, traditional wedding. This day is still one of the most monumental and life-altering moments of your life, so I plan on treating it like the HUGE deal that it is!

 

Don't you want your day to be more than a 20 minute ceremony and some "quick pics"? Don't you want it to be the experince of a lifetime? Don't you want to remember the whole story?

Or are you looking for someone who...

  • will become a friend who cares about you + your day and advocates for your deepest desires
  • supports you through all of your decisions and will happily go with the flow whenever things head in a different direction
  • encourages you to think intentionally and celebrate hard (elopements aren't any less of a big deal just because they are small!)
  • guides you to the most stunning landscapes you've ever seen and the best time of day to witness them
  • will sign your marriage license as an officiant or witness to make things all nice and legal
  • takes the time to get to know you so that your photos are more than just about the poses, but true representations of who you two are

What other couples are saying:

“We're floored, stunned, agog, thrilled, teary-eyed, and squealing with joy (well, Mark was. I'm totally stoic.) over the incredible gallery of images from our wedding day. Your photography speaks directly to my heart and the photos you took are among my most prized possessions. You are masterful and humble and lovable and talented.

Literally the best investment we've ever made!"

-Lorelei

"Our photographs mean everything to us and more. The way Joni creates natural movement and turns them into the most touching and intimate photos is incredible. We received so many photos of the *little* moments that truly created such a great day. She truly puts thought into the way she photographs and it really shows!

Like they say, you get what you pay for and I truly believe that. If you want amazing wedding photos, it's reality that you have to expect to pay more. I had so many people say they couldn't believe what I was comfortable with paying for a photographer - those same people are now coming back saying they've never seen such beautiful wedding photos. I think that speaks for itself!"

-Maegan

"Our investment has definitely been worth every penny! I can't recommend Joni highly enough! She is outstanding and beautifully talented. I absolutely love all the photos. I have scrolled them again and again and each time I'm filled with happiness and a joyful feeling of the future. I can't wait to show these photos off for the rest of my life.

We love you, Joni!! Thank you for capturing the magic with your humor and grace.
Forever grateful you were our photographer."

-Kate
