The philosophy of Carina Photographics is simple: We capture the essence of lives, souls, and love.

Long after the music has died down, the dress has been stored, the flowers have wilted, or the kids have grown, your images will live on. Your photography is an investment you make in your family’s legacy. We approach photography as a blend of fine art, editorial, storytelling along with candid, documentary photography. Focusing on the connections between you and your loved ones, we make artful images that capture your heart – bringing you right back to the emotions you felt on that day. We rely on our insight, artistic vision and technical skills to organize and direct as needed while keeping the images, and you, feeling relaxed and present to enjoy each moment.

Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

For our wedding clients, we know that most are navigating the world of wedding planning for the first time. We are here to educate and guide you so that you know exactly what is needed to create the images you love, to help you organize your timeline so that you can enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends and keep it as stress-free as possible, and to help you find the best vendors in the industry who will help you create the wedding of your dreams.

Photographic Artwork

We offer a full-service, custom wedding photography experience, which means you get much more than just a jumble of digital files handed over on a disc. We use our design aesthetic to craft gorgeous artisan heirlooms that you will treasure for generations – including innovative, artisan, custom-designed Albums that are handmade in Italy, as well as luxury Wall Portrait fine art prints, metals, canvas, gift prints, and much more.

I am Joanna Carina – wife, mother, wedding photographer and heirloom designer. I would love to meet you and learn more about what you envision for your wedding or portrait photography. Contact Minneapolis wedding photographer Joanna Carina of Carina Photographcs soon and let’s set a date!
