Joanne did a family shoot for us and we could not be happier with the results! She was extremely easy to work with made all 3 of us feel comfortable and at ease. This was our first family shoot and we were anxious – especially with our 5 year old, but she made the entire afternoon feel like a walk on the beach! She was able to capture our family and our energy together and the final pictures are more than we could have hoped for. I’m so thankful that we were able to work with her and we look forward to working together again as our family continues to grow.

“We simply cannot thank Joanne Markland enough for helping to make our wedding day as perfect as it was. The photos Jo took that day were just incredible and far exceeded anything we expected. A couple of our guests have even said they are “by far the best wedding photos they have ever seen”! Jo just blended in with our guests and we hardly noticed she was there at times, and yet she seems to have been in all the right places at the right time, capturing some fantastic memories of our big day! Jo was very professional and knows how to use light to her advantage. Having visited the venue beforehand, Jo knew all the best local locations for our shoots and had it all planned out, and we have some stunning shots of us in the vineyards at sunset. She helped us to relax completely and enjoy the photo shoots.

So if you are looking for a brilliant photographer for your wedding, we highly recommend Joanne Markland! Thank you Jo for being our photographer, we were so lucky to find you!

She captured mine and my husband’s engagement shoot, as well as our wedding! Not only does this lady take INCREDIBLE photographs but everyone at our wedding enjoyed her humor and her company. For people who don’t like photo shoots, we couldn’t have picked better. She made us feel comfortable and she actually made us feel excited for our wedding being photographed!

Joanne photographed our wedding in March 2015. We love the pics and were impressed how quickly we got them after the day! She really bent over backwards to make the day special and added a lot of fun too! Xxx

Five out of five stars just doesn’t seem like enough for Joanne Markland Photography. My husband and I were lucky enough to meet Joanne last year and she photographed our engagement shoot and wedding in April. Thinking back on the day, it’s hard to imagine that anyone would be able to capture the magic that we all felt. Joanne not only did just that, but also surprised us with shots that left us in awe of her talent. Joanne is a true professional of an art that she has mastered with precision. Joanne’s photos catch the essence of who we are, while adding in an artistic element that radiates in every shot. Joanne will forever hold a place in our hearts, not only for the precious gifts she has given us in her photos, but for the friendship we’ve developed throughout the whole experience too.

When we were searching for a Cape Town location for our wedding, we stumbled upon a beautiful photo of a place that captured the charm and whimsy we were looking for. We booked the venue and then noticed that the photograph was taken by Joanne Markland Photography. We quickly looked up her website and I instantly fell in love with her clean and modern style, the gorgeous landscapes, and the fairy tale impressions she was able to create for all those beautiful brides and grooms. I knew immediately that I wanted her to be my wedding photography and it was one of the best decisions I made. Joanne showed up with an assistant on time and I didn’t have to wonder if every magical moment was being captured. I could just focus on enjoying the event and building my own memories. I could not be happier with my photos. Every time I look at Joanne’s photos from my wedding, I get goose bumps. She photographed me in a way that made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world that night. We were able to build wonderful memories for our guests as well. The photos are perfect and priceless. I wouldn’t ever hesitate to recommend Joanne, in fact I’m hoping to book her again soon to do a family shoot!

Richard and I just want to say a hugeTHANK YOU! Trying to pick a photographer from the other side of the world was difficult as I had a very clear idea of what I wanted. I loved your blog, so full of beautiful moments and right from our first few emails we knew that our photo’s memories were in good hands. On the day you made us feel at ease and we had so much fun getting our photos done, in fact some of my favourites were taken without us even realising it!
I have recommended you to everyone I know, I haven’t had to say much because your photos say it all! So thank you, for making this part of our wedding such a pleasure! We are already planning a trip over for another shoot when we expand our little family so see you soon!

Planning our wedding was easy, finding the right people to make the day possible was the difficult task. Well not until we met a great person & photographer Joanne Markland.
Finding our photographer to shoot our big and most memorable day was top of the list. It was also the first booking we made in our planning process. One day I saw photographs of a friends wedding which Jo did. I couldn’t stop looking through them, showed them to my fiancé (at the time) and he too was impressed.  READ MORE

There is something special about Joanne and the way she captures one’s picture (without enhancing like rookie photographers do today). There is emotion and warmth in Jo’s work. We can’t stop looking at our wedding photographs.
