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 photoshoot for my fiancé and I, 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 back up location options which was 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.
