Meet The (Future) Bankers
Joe Banker Photography consists of myself (Joe) and my fiancée Ashley. We are a wedding photography and videography team based in Cleveland Ohio. We love to travel and have captured weddings all over Ohio, Pennsylvania, and the Lowcountry!
Thank you for supporting our small business! We're excited to capture some of life's greatest moments and share our passion with others! We're so thankful for everyone who has helped us become an award winning business.
Getting to know you as a couple, allows us to capture imagery that is 100% real & authentic! We know most people have never been professionally photographed before so it can be awkward! Our job is to alleviate the weird and uncomfortable! We will guide you with interactive posing that allows us to capture your natural chemistry and emotions in a fun, stress free way.
All wedding packages include a basic engagement session. It's a great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera, build a relationship before the big day, and know what to expect from us.
We absolutely love what we do! On your wedding day, we focus on doing everything we can to make sure you get to enjoy your special day to the fullest. We know that you've invested much of your time and hard earned money carefully planning and preparing for your day. We want you to be able to relax and enjoy it, it's happiest day of your life!
Ashley and I are just normal people with a shared passion for photography! We met in 2011 at the local community college. I had aspirations to become a Marine Biologist; however, Ashley made me take a photography course with her and it changed everything. Since then, I have constantly worked on improving my skill set and expertise.
I spent a few years working with local musicians and photographing concerts while working part time for a husband and wife wedding photography team as an assistant photographer. Ashley stepped away from photography briefly to explore graphic design and other career paths.
In 2017 Joe Banker Photography was born. I became a small business owner and a full time wedding photographer and I never looked back. Ashley has always been my biggest supporter and a behind the scenes business partner, working on things like branding and website design until 2020 when she also became a full time wedding photographer. We became a super team, complimenting each other's different strengths and weaknesses, perfecting our workflow.
