OVERVIEW

Jo loves modern, fresh and fun images that are actually fun to take. From slow paced romantic couples portraits or first looks, through to the candids on the dance floor, Jo will be there for all the big emotions as well as the quiet moments.

Situated in Geelong, Joanne Keighery Photography is the business of Jo (surname is pronounced Keary) . This experienced wedding photographer will be a wonderful addition to your wedding supplier list. If you are after a photojournalistic style and want a photographer who specialises in putting couples at ease while having a few laughs, you're in the right place.  Blending classic and modern, you'll love your images today as much as tomorrow. No matter what your love looks like, it will get a hearty welcome at Joanne Keighery Photography. 

If you’re interested in this exceptional wedding photographer, its as easy as getting in touch, seeing if your date is free, and picking a package to suit. 

"If you're at all worried about getting your photos 'done' the most important thing is to book a professional you trust. I like to think of portrait time as the most romantic time of your day as its usually the only time you get to soak in a few moments in a beautiful setting just the two of you. I like to represent the romance in my images because after all, this is actually a love story! Yours! Lets tell it properly and have a bit of fun along the way and get the images you're dreaming about."

"I've developed my own system that gets you feeling confident, gorgeous and relaxed while being pretty efficient so you can get back to your day. There's lots of little things I have interspersed through my coverage so you'll remember all the little things you chose. From luxe flatlays, reception reveals, first looks - the options are pretty endless. All my clients who book now receive a magazine written by me with my top tips for a successful day and preparation."

What you can expect when working with Joanne Keighery Photography for your wedding:

 

  • Assistance with planning and timeline management - you're not alone so we'll work it all out together so you have time for everything. 
  • Stress free photo portrait time - a few moments to cherish with your partner. 
  • Luxe, editorial looks mixed with my photojournalistic style. You can curate this mixture any way you like - some couples opt for candid images only. 

Here’s what else you need to know about Joanne Keighery Photography.

 

  • Wedding packages. Joanne offers packages and provides custom quotes. These packages include a gorgeous online gallery, fine art prints, a highlight gallery set to music, as well as lots of assistance with your timeline (if you need it).

Tell us about your wedding packages and inclusions.

I offer packages based on the time frame to keep things super simple. For my couples who want a fine art lay flat album, I offer an 8 hour package with or without the album. I also offer 2,4 and 6 hour packages. It couldn't be easier. As long as you have secured your date with me, you can change the package later on. As I only take on a select number of weddings per year, its better just to lock in your date and we can work out what you need together. 

Here is what is included in the 8-hour package (no album) 

  • Gorgeous digital gallery and access to a professional print store with stunning products.
  • Timber box with fine art (gallery quality) mounted prints delivered with TLC. 
  • Planning Consultations to get the best photos ever
  • High and Low Resolution images (for printing and socials) 
  • Option to add on extras - Content Creation for social media, Engagement Session and Album. 
  • My personal magazine designed by me for my couples. 

'Its really important to me to capture all of the in between moments. They're the images that really stand out years down the track when you remember not just how much fun you were having, but also how you felt. The candid images are the really priceless images in my opinion. I mix that with my style of modern editorial and I view that combination as an investment that will give you the best return for years to come" 

About

I love documenting weddings and looking after my couples. Its really the best job ever! I'm a busy biz owner, mum, and wife. I love family life, interiors shows, my dogs and anywhere I can sit on a balcony and soak up a great vibe. I'm married to a golf obsessive (we even got married on a golf course), and forever grateful to live and work in Geelong. I grew up in the Yarra Valley and travel anywhere for my couples and their amazing days.

FAQ

I'm so glad you asked because it's really important to have a photographer who shares your vision for your day. My style is romantic, modern and fresh with a strong editorial focus. Editorial simply means what you'd expect to see in a magazine or print. I do lean to a more light and airy style rather than dark and moody. 

No definitely not. I like to think of myself as a fairly quiet presence through your day, just here to provide some gentle guidance when necessary or to help you out. Approximately 90% of an 8 hour wedding is candid coverage. Think of it like having a journalist documenting your wedding.  In the getting ready portion, I busy myself capturing everything thats going on. We may do some pictures with bridesmaids and a few bridal portraits but I'm generally out of the way. I may suggest a nice well lit space to put on your dress. After the ceremony (or before in some cases), we'll head out and I will give some direction for portraits. I like to think I'll give you enough instruction to look natural but not so little you stand around wondering what to do with your hands. It might be something as simple as 'hey go for a walk, hold hands, talk to each other'. 

It is worth mentioning that some people like a little extra direction and help with 'posing', and feel more comfortable and confident in their images if they've been posed in a flattering way. If that is you, just let me know and that is also easily achieved. 

I edit all images carefully - in fact, I edit skin to look beautiful but still natural. Not only do i look out on the day for lipstick on teeth or any number of things, but we can have a chat about any temporary blemishes if they occur, so don't stress if you have a break out. I make sure all the colours you carefully chose for your day are accurately displayed. 

You receive approximately 100 images per shooting hour. Obviously, this can change. For example, a wedding held completely at night may have less.  I give you as many as I can. 

No doubt this is tricky. I do check the weather the week of every wedding and we have a chat if its looking rainy. We can do some in the rain with an umbrella but I don't always think this is a great idea. You don't want to get your dress and shoes muddy and wet. We can do them indoors and this works great for beautiful venues. We could move portrait time to earlier in the day. I will present you with a rain plan if the forecast is not looking good. When all fails and you just want the dreamy portraits you envisoned, I have done reshoots before - thats where you put your dress back on, hubby dons the suit again, (or you two grooms get your suits on) you get hair and make up done again and we go out another time. I offer super reasonable rates for reshoots. 

You receive your images within 28 days in a downloadable gallery. 

Of course - that would be my pleasure and you'll be more confident in your decision.

We were so happy we chose Jo for our photos. She made our day so fun. We wanted our portrait time to go longer lol. Jo totally blew us away with her photos - we woke up to 50 preview photos the next day and we got over 1000 of the best images we could have imagined. Jo went really above and beyond making sure every moment was captured. She was also seamless working with our videographer. It can be uncomfortable being in front of the camera and I was worried for my husband who is not the posing type. Jo was so much fun that even my husband was having a ball and the genuine smiles are what we wanted. She also got the more tender photos and some really emotional ones of our small family and kids. Overall holy moly - we were ecstatic with our whole experience.

We loved having Jo as our wedding photographer. She made the process so easy for us and took the time to really understood what we were after, particularly with us having a very small intimate wedding. She gave us so many excellent tips and ideas. All our friends and family have raved about the photos and have said what a great job Jo did!

Jo was amazing, she able to utilise the natural spaces around our venue to identify great locations for our photos and also took some great shots of the venue and set-up. She was also incredibly patient! We were extremely happy with the results, which included some beautiful candid shots of ourselves and our guests as we celebrated throughout the evening. Pre and post event communication was also very good. We would highly recommend Jo for your special event!

I am considering wedding content creation services, what do you think of this investment?

Hi there, I am considering hiring a wedding content creation and capture service like @SocialSnapshots, however am unsure as to how i could work this into my budget. I already have a photographer but I'm looking for more behind the scenes content, capturing the details of my day. I am moving states to be with my partner so I'll know there will be plenty of emotions that the photographer wont accurately capture. What do you think of this sort of new service?

Joanne Keighery Photography

I think you only get this day once and its amazing how new ways to remember it are coming out! I absolutely think its a great idea. Content creation is restricted to phone use so as awesome as the Iphone 14 is, you'll still need your photographer and videographer. But the content creation adds another dimension. I offer a couple of ways to do this. You may use my content assistant for the day and they will use your phone to capture as much footage and photos as possible that you will have so much fun looking back over the next day. I also offer another service which is content creation on our Iphone 14 and my staff member, which you receive the next day. It will include ready made reels, videos and stills and so much footage you'll have to be careful not to spend your honeymoon on your phone. We also offer optional poloroids to take home on the night.
