"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers the little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
-- Aaron Siskind
Hello! I'm Joan Phinn, a photographer based out of Exton in beautiful Chester County Pennsylvania. I have had a camera in my hand since I was twelve years old. Photography has been a passion of mine for most of my life. I have always been documenting the various events in my family.
I enjoy various types of photography but portrait and wedding photography is where I specialize. My style for event photography would be considered "documentary" - where I do not pose every shot but capture the natural moments as they come. For portraits I equally love both studio and outdoor sessions. They each have their own unique quality.
Digital photography has given photographers the ability to be creative with their images after they are captured in camera. The possibilities are endless. I use Photoshop, Lightroom and other photo editing apps to help me create images that will enhance the story of my subject(s).
I would like to introduce John Carney. He is my second shooter for weddings/events. He has 15 years experience as a wedding photographer and 5 years as an underwater photographer. He too has a passion for photography and has been interested in it since he was a child. We really enjoy working together to capture our clients special moments.
Please visit my portfolio to see a selection of my favorite images.
If you would like to contact me with any questions about my work or would like to work together please do not hesitate to get in touch using the "Contact Me" link above.
Thank you for visiting.

PS You can also find me on Instagram and Facebook.
When John and I shoot an event we use two way radios to communicate with each other so that we can actively collaborate during the event while providing the extended coverage that a second shooter provides. He also assists me in some portrait shoots.
I shoot in studio and outdoor, whatever your preference. I am proficient in photo editing applications such as Photoshop, Lightroom, to name a few. I always try to make every image to be something more than just a snap shot. I want them to look like a work of art.
Digital downloads and prints are available for purchase on my web site. If there is something special you are looking for and do not see here you can ask me and I am sure I will be able to get it for you.
As far as pricing goes... there are many variables to choose from so I find it is best to discuss that with you instead of having a list here on my web site.
I look forward to capturing your special moments!
