Joe and Kathleen are a husband and wife team of wedding photographers. Based in Knoxville, Tenn., we specialize in earthy and intimate weddings with an organic, timeless, and romantic quality.
We have photographed more than 500 weddings since 2008 and we specialize in weddings and elopements for adventurous couples.
We also own the Knox Photo Bus, a mobile photo booth in a 1969 Volkswagen bus, Gallaher Bend, a Knoxville wedding venue for elopements and intimate weddings, and Atmosphere Aerosol for photographers and filmmakers.
What We Love
As you can tell in our photos, we are big dog lovers. We have three golden retrievers, and we volunteer for Adopt-A-Golden Knoxville. When we aren't working, we are spending time with our boys, Tigger, Murphy, and Thor. And if you bring your dog with you to your engagement session or your dog is in your wedding, Kathleen will probably talk in her dog voice and take as many photos of you with your dog as possible!
Joe is the lead photographer at JoPhoto. Before JoPhoto, he worked at an advertising agency for 10 years. He directed, shot and edited more than 200 local, regional, and national television commercials -- including working with 2 governors and a U.S. president. Joe has produced award-winning results for advertising agencies, magazines, publishing companies, celebrities, non-profit organizations, and television.
Joe combines his advertising agency experience with his passion for photography, expertise with indoor and outdoor lighting, and creativity.
Kathleen is the other half of JoPhoto. She is the organizer, business-thinker and planner. She uses her background in journalism, public relations, and digital marketing to help tell the story of your day. Since 2000, Kathleen worked in public relations, event planning, and digital media for both nonprofit and commercial businesses.
Kathleen combines her experience with her passion for film photography to beautifully capture the story of your wedding day.
