About me

Get to know me better

Hi, I am Jo-Ann and I am going to let you into a little secret, I am a closet romantic! I get a thrill second to none to capture real, raw, authentic rad love stories! I believe that wedding photography can be fun, creative, sexy, sultry, romantic, honest but most of all, full of life capturing moments. What excites me about wedding photography is that, just like a fingerprint, each ceremony of love is completely different from any other. It thrills me to capture those unique contrasts.

I currently reside in Cape Town but I will travel to wherever my camera and passport will take me! Thank you for taking the time to look around. I do hope you enjoyed your visit. Contact me today and we can get chatting about your big day. I would be “stoked” to hear your ideas and witness your expressions of love.


Wedding packages start from R16 500

This is well overdue BUT the joy and floating have not passed since our wedding day in July. And thanks to YOU we relive it constantly. Every day.

I cannot begin to thank you for what you have brought us. Without saying our photo's are the bees knees. We keep hearing far and wide how absolutely magical and stunning our wedding pictures are. And with this goofy bride I know it was all your doing. So thank you. A million thanks for our lifetime of memories so perfectly captured and portrayed.

Thank you also for being such a genuine and fun loving person! It is not often that the individual makes such a difference to the customers. From the get go I felt like we had one game plan and eye for our wedding. From sticky champagne shots (not sticky at all) to throwing my groom in the air. Thank you for convincing my husband it will be alright lol. Thank you also for handling our family pictures and the dynamics therein with grace.

Jo is an awesome photographer and we loved having her around on our special day. She's friendly and relaxed, but also very professional. It's so important to feel comfortable with your photographer, after all, they are sharing your day with you. Thanks again Jo, we're excited for our book!

In short - Jo-Ann is AMAZING!!!  We met her via a referral, shortly before our daughter was born and we booked her for the newborn shoot! She and her assistant were so good with our baby girl and she took the most beautiful photos!! We've used her about 4 times since that first shoot and not only will we recommend her to everyone we know, we will keep on going back time and again!! She's not only our photographer she's also become our friend, almost part of the family!! Thank you, Jo-Ann, for all the effort you put into every shoot, you truly are one of a kind and your photos are insanely beautiful!! xxx

Jo-Ann is the most talented photographer I have come across. I was looking for a photographer online and amongst hundreds of other sites, her photos jumped out at me. And I am so glad I chose her to do our engagement shoot, our wedding and afterwards my boudoir shoot. The special thing about Jo-Ann is that she always allowed me to be in the moment without feeling a camera close up on me. That was very important to me on my wedding day, as our wedding was about being in the moment and enjoying it with family and friends.  I hardly noticed Jo-Ann taking photos, but when I saw how she had captured the night, I was mesmerised.

We took her whole wedding package which included a Boudoir shoot as a gift for my husband. I was nervous at first as I am not a natural born top model, but I am so very happy we did the shoot. Jo-Ann made me feel so comfortable and sexy and it wasn’t long before I started to smoulder. The photos are beautiful and tasteful and the look in my eyes say more than what I was wearing. I will treasure these photos forever as they prove to myself that I am a beautiful and sexy woman and I totally own my femininity. And of course my husband is only too pleased to have such a sexy new wife, and the photos to prove it.

I had two wonderful experiences with Jo-Ann Stokes. She did our out of the ordinary engagement shoot and she was very game for the strangeness of throwing power paint all over and wow did she manage to capture the most amazing photos. We then got to experience her brilliant photography at our wedding. Going out of her way to capture the most brilliant of memories. I would recommend her to anyone that asks as she is a fun person to get along with as well as knowing what she is doing to capture beautiful memories.

I just want you to know that my passionate love affair with your photos continues… I honestly can’t stop looking at them. You have not only provided us with stunning photographs - your professionalism and attention to detail were absolutely outstanding. You captured such beautiful moments from our wedding and in doing so preserved beautiful memories. Each and every image is filled with emotion and love. I’m sure in years to come when the old grey cells need a bit more prompting we’ll only have to turn the pages of the album to relive the day. We would recommend your services to anyone who is looking for a talented, professional photographer who is a joy to work with and has the ability to put you at ease. I can’t wait to have you capture the next chapter of our amazing journey together.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again for everything.

I chose Jo-Ann as my wedding photographer before I had even chosen a venue, dress or any other wedding-related service. That's how impressed I was with her talent - her eye for ambiance, intimate moments, gorgeous light. And she exceeded all of my expectations! Throughout the wedding planning, she was extremely helpful with suggestions, quick to respond to emails and highly professional. On the day, she was a calm, warm and fun presence. In fact our couple's shoot after the ceremony was probably the highlight of our day! And then when we got to see the final product, we were blown away with how beautifully she had captured it all. I simply have no words. I look at our wedding photos over and over, reliving and remembering, and when I do, I know that choosing Jo-Ann as our photographer was the best decision we made for our day.

Beautiful photos!! Really an amazing experience being photographed by such a talented lady! 10 stars

Jo Ann is extremely professional, sets clear expectations and is an absolute badass sweetheart when shooting! Even though it felt somewhat daunting doing a couple photoshoot for the first time (it is frightening to think we have to live up to those "in love" perfect couples from Google, and what if we don't?!) she made us both feel comfortable and at ease with each other in front of the lenses! Would definitely recommend her for couples who might want some help letting loose in front of a camera - she's great!
