JoE & Ashley



First let us say we're very thankful for all of our couples and clients! We are especially thankful to those who have helped us become an award winning business!


We are proud to be a winner of "The Knot Best of Weddings" for 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, and are honored to be a part of "The Knot Hall of Fame". We are also proud to be a winner of the "Couples' Choice Awards" for 2020 and 2021 via Weddingwire. We truly can't thank our couples enough for inviting us to be a part of their special day and for taking the time to share your kind words about your experiences working with us. 

Joe Banker Photography consists of myself and my girlfriend Ashley. We also have awesome associate photographers that work with us throughout the year to help with weddings during the busy season. On your wedding day, we focus on doing our best to make sure you get to enjoy your special day to the fullest. We are low stress photographers and absolutely love what we do! We know that you've invested much of your time carefully planning and preparing leading up to your day, so we feel it is important to RELAX and ENJOY the happiest day of your life!

Ashley and I are homeowners in a suburb of Cleveland, where we met in 2011. We took a college course in photography together which is where we realized that photography is what we wanted to do with our careers. We work very well as a team, complimenting each others different strengths and weaknesses.

We are born and raised Ohioans, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Cincinnati Reds, and Playhouse Square season ticket holders. We like sports, obviously! Naturally, we are also Buckeye fans: OH-IO!

However, with the inability to attend sporting events in 2020, we have had some extra time to become pretty decent at-home cooks, spending many evenings getting creative in the kitchen! Along with cooking, we've enjoyed spending our time at home working on projects or hanging out with our four rescue cats. We had only planned on having one, but you know how that goes!


Year round, we love to get outdoors and enjoy nature. Fishing has always been a big part of my life and now I love sharing those experiences with Ashley. Whether we are ice fishing on frozen ponds or trolling for walleye on Lake Erie, somehow Ashley always finds a way to outfish me! 

Ashley and I love to travel! Like many other Ohioans, we have developed a fondness for the Lowcountry. We visit as much as we can throughout the year and are fortunate enough to have opportunities to photograph weddings in our home-away-from-home! In the near future, we hope to establish a secondary residence to call our own down South.

We are firm believers in providing professional high quality imagery to all of our clients. We strive to set Joe Banker Photography apart from other photographers by creating clean, sharp images that you and your family will love for the rest of your lives!
