Exton, Pennsylvania Portrait and Event Photographer

"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.

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 please contact me.

As far as pricing goes...  I have various packages  to choose from. I can go over them with you when we meet.    

I look forward to capturing your special moments!

All the best,
