    Amazing photographer!

    My husband and I recently got married up at our cottage and Josée was everything we had hoped for and more. When we first set out looking for a photographer, we both knew we needed someone who could understand the beauty of the backdrop, but also the intimate moments of us with our family. She supported us throughout the entire process, always checking in and making sure she was prepared for all different types of lighting, terrain, and weather. The day of her attention to detail was like no other and she always seemed to know exactly what to do to get the perfect shot. When we got our photos back, to say we were speechless would be an understatement. She did such a beautiful job and captured so many moments that mean just so much to the both of us. We’ve already recommended her to friends and will continue to use her for any photography needs in the future!

    Phenomenal!

    We are so grateful to Josée for our magical engagement photos! It meant a lot to us to have had them taken in our neighborhood, and to say we absolutely love our pictures is an understatement. Josée has incredible passion and phenomenal creativity. We were a bit nervous about taking photos in public, but Josée made the experience so enjoyable! She coached us the whole time, and made us feel genuinely comfortable in front of her lens. She was focused, and had a great eye for detail. She was able to take so many exceptional shots in a short time.

    I would definitely, highly recommend Josée to anyone looking for a photographer who is not only extremely talented, but also so kind and amazing to work with!

    Best photographer!

    Josée was absolutely amazing from start to finish! We appreciate the amount of attention to detail she put into taking our pictures, and how easy it was being around her! All our guests were also raving about her after the ceremony, saying how discreet she was during the wedding, and oh so friendly afterwards! And I cannot thank her enough for the quick turnaround :)

    Amazing Experience!

    Josée was so friendly from the moment I messaged her asking if she'd be available for a surprise couple's photoshoot for my partner and I. She came well prepared with so many great ideas and she gave us beautifully edited photos soon afterwards. I highly recommend!

Meet the Team

Josée van Wissen
Josée van Wissen
Lead Photographer

Hello! My name is Josée (pronounced Jo-say... it is French Canadian et oui, je parle français) and I'm a freelance, documentary-style photographer who lives in East Toronto. Since I was a kid I can remember always having a tremendous interest in photography. I remember borrowing my mom's old film camera and snapping shots of friends and family. The wonderful thing about the medium is its power to tell stories and capture beautiful moments; it's this particular magic that drew me to its art-form. I shoot with my Sony a7iii and enjoy taking photos with my film camera every now and then.

A few fun facts about me...

I am obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter... often together.

I have an ever-growing camera collection - I think I have about 7 now...

I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but don't ask me to pull out any moves because it's been over 13 years since I've gone to a class haha...

I have lived in France and England. If you love to travel, let's chat!

I am an avid concert goer - I absolutely LOVE music and have tried to take music lessons all throughout my life... I guess I am meant to be more of a music appreciator than musician.

I have a younger brother, which means I still remember all 152 original Pokémon and can beat you Super Smash Bros... yes... even with Kirby.

I care deeply about well-being. I am an advocate for meditation, eating right, and regular exercise.

------

Let's just say, I absolutely LOVE what I do and I would be honoured to be your photographer. I specialize in documentary-style photography. That simply means, I love to capture those truly authentic and magical moments between you and your loved ones - those moments of genuine feeling and unequivocal emotion.
