What an Experience
My husband and I, like many this year, we're supposed to have a big wedding with all of our family members. However, because of Covid, we were unable to have everyone with us, but thanks to Josee we were still able to capture everything. She was very professional and understanding of what we wanted. The way that she threw herself into capturing the most amazing day of our lives was very reassuring. We did not have to worry about missing a single thing, because we were able to go back through the photos and remember the great times.Sent on 09/01/2021
If you are looking for an enthusiastic, fun-loving photographer then you can be assured that Josee is who you are looking for.
We are thankful that she was there to help us remember our day and would recommend her to anyone else.

Engagement & Wedding Photographer
Josée an absolutely amazing photographer and is ideal for any occasion. Having shot my engagement and covid wedding, she went above and beyond to ensure all things ran smoothly on both occasions and even threw in a few surprises (like sparklers at the end of the night for more stunning pictures).
She is very passionate, knowledgeable and patient. She takes the time to ensures that all of your needs are met (even exceeds them by visiting you a week in advance to scope out your location and find the ideal angles and lighting). Josée is also flexible, friendly and is always available to answer questions or address any concerns. So if you are looking for a friendly and professional feel, JVW photography is hands down the right choice for you ☺️.Sent on 24/08/2020

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!Sent on 25/08/2020

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 :)Sent on 24/08/2020

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.
