I am Joline, a Massachusetts based wedding and portrait family photographer. I like to observe and capture genuine, candid interactions and I will give you a little direction when needed most so that you feel confident in your images. I am there to be a friend in the planning process, get pumped about the personal touches of your day whether I am photographing your wedding or capturing the essence of your family.
My name is Joline but everyone calls me Jo. I live in S. Weymouth, Massachusetts in an antique farmhouse built in 1868. I share my antique home with my fiancé Peter and our two adorable pug brothers Augustus and Caesar.
I believe each person, each couple, each family is different. We all have our unique stories to tell. My style is a photo-journalistic approach to capturing the fun, natural, silly and creative ways that you are as individuals, families and as couples.
I love serving the world by making people smile, encouraging people to be their awesome selves and using my voice and my camera to raise awareness for the issues that I am passionate about. Those passions include but are not limited to body image positivity, marriage equality, and animal rights.
When I’m not busy with a camera in my hand you can catch me road tripping to local New England towns either solo or with Pete. I love a good flea market, antique or vintage shop and could spend all day at looking for treasure at BRIMFIELD. Some of my favorite things to collect are tiki mugs, old film cameras and bar wear. I am also known for my cocktail skills and my bad jokes....anything to get a REAL smile.
People often tell me that I have an uncanny way of making everyone around me feel comfortable, relaxed and like they can be themselves. I never take those moments for granted and thrive on the human connections and the unique stories of all my couples and families. The unique story that everyone has is why I completely fall in love with every couple I work with. It’s just my personality… I go all in.
After your wedding day is over, the last dance is done and the cake is gone, your wedding will live on in the images your wedding photographer has captured for you. The memories are yours, the photographs are your heirloom. I BELIEVE in your heirlooms!
“WE HONESTLY CAN’T TALK ENOUGH ABOUT HOW MUCH LAUGHTER AND LOVE YOU BROUGHT TO OUR DAY.
WE HONESTLY FELT LIKE WE HAD A GOOD FRIEND STANDING BY US TAKING OUR PICTURES THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS!”
Joline really listened to what we wanted for our photos and offered great suggestions for backdrops and locations. Joline was not just accommodating (she drove up through the pouring rain for our engagement shoot to photograph us OUTSIDE our first apartment together), but was even happy to do it. When it rained on our wedding day and I was super stressed, she made sure our pictures came out perfect anyway, despite having to change our plans and move the location of our first look....
"Hiring Joline to be our wedding photographer was the best decision we made! Not only is she a great photographer, she's super fun and a ball to be around (which is great, seeing as I was with her all day)!"

Her prices are truly unmatched for her amazing talent. I'm a huge snob when it comes to photography but was worried I wouldn't find someone in my budget! Even seeing her other beautiful photos, we were still *in awe* when she released our sneak peek! My husband and I are very self-conscious about having photos taken--Joline's calm, sweet manner quickly had us opening up/having a great time. It never felt forced. Her assistant was also absolutely excellent/professional. Logistically, start to finish, everything was perfect.
"Absolutely don't hesitate to book Joline! Start to finish, we couldn't have asked for better for our engagement and wedding photos."
Ellen & Dan
We chose to have an engagement session with her, and felt like it made the wedding day even better! It allowed us to get to know her and her style, and let her get to know us as a couple and how to make us not look awkward. I was worried that we would look uncomfortable, but Joline is awesome and the time she takes to work with her clients pays off. She made us laugh, had little tricks up her sleeve to make us comfortable, and took the time to direct us when needed. Both Joline and her assistant photographer were so organized and captured all the precious moments the way we had hoped for and made us feel at ease with the entire process. Everyone in the wedding party complimented them and their ability to get all the details without being intrusive. And now that we have seen all the photos, we could not be happier!
"We highly recommend Joline and cannot thank her enough for capturing our excitement and love, and are so happy with the way she captured the day!"

Weddings are a BIG investment. I understand this and I am here for you to help out in any way that I can. I photograph weddings big and small all over the New England area, so I understand that a one-price-fits-all model simply doesn’t work for everyone. All of my couples have different needs that don’t always fit into one simple number.
A La Carte options are available in addition to Wedding Collections.
