Couples

I like to have a meeting beforehand with the couples I photograph, to plan the shoot but more importantly to get to know them. When you trust me to document your relationship, I want to have an openness between us. Tell me the history of your love, all the quirks and inside jokes that make you, you. All these details help me create images that feel uniquely you.

Couple shoots start at $600. Drop me an email at joelle[at]joellecq.co.

 

Cheryl & Farrel

This engagement shoot saw the couple revisiting Somerset, an area which bore witness to the formative stages of their relationship. His goofy nature made for many a candid shot - even the unexpected downpour couldn't stop these lovebirds dancing and joking both on and off camera.

Shot on a mixture of 35mm film and digital mediums.

 

“Joelle did an engagement photo shoot for my fiancé and me, and we were extremely impressed by her attention to detail. Even before the day of the shoot, she reached out to ask for some brief details about our relationship so that the locations and mood of the shoot would be more relatable to us.

"In addition, she came prepared with backup location options which were great because it rained on the day of the shoot and we couldn’t go to the outdoor areas that were planned. She was patient in guiding us through the shoot and prompting us to make small adjustments to our positions to achieve a more relaxed pose.

"The photos came out beautifully and we were ecstatic with the results. Highly recommend her for future shoot opportunities!”

Ynez & Kenneth

Ynezs & Kenneth entrusted me with documenting their romance ahead of one of their anniversaries. This sunrise shoot at Coney Island, surrounded by forest and blessed with clear blue skies, perfectly reflects the peace and security Kenenth exudes, while contrasting with Ynez's bright and fun-loving personality.

 

“Kenneth and I are absolutely blessed to have our anniversary photos captured by Joelle at Coney Island. From the preparation to the shoot to the post-editing phase, she has shown so much dedication and professionalism. She initiated to meet up with both of us prior to the shoot in order to get to know us much better as a couple. She shared her philosophy as a photographer too, that every photo is a memory. She also co-constructed the theme of the shoot to ensure that we would enjoy the shoot. While she already had a concept in mind, she showed flexibility by inserting our own concepts too.

“Apart from her personalized approach, I was so grateful that she had also gone out of her way to conduct a recce of the entire island to ensure that the timing and lighting would be optimal for the shoot. Even when the sun was glaring near to moon, she prepared tissues and portable fans to keep us looking fresh. As a result of her attention to detail, we had taken our photos at specific areas on the island where the sun cast a really comfortable glow on us - the photos turned out superb!

“Her bubbly personality makes the shoot so comfortable and fun - even my stoic boyfriend who never really fancied being in front of the camera felt so much at ease and smiled more naturally. She was also bold to try new concepts; especially one on driftwood by the sea which pleasantly surprised us. All the photos captured our relationship so beautifully - ranging from quirky shots to slow dancing shots.

“Thank you Joelle for putting your clients as a priority, and having such a deep passion for what you do. It shines through and shows in your work.”
