My husband and I recently got married up at our cottage and Josée was everything we had hoped for and more. When we first set out looking for a photographer, we both knew we needed someone who could understand the beauty of the backdrop, but also the intimate moments of us with our family. She supported us throughout the entire process, always checking in and making sure she was prepared for all different types of lighting, terrain, and weather. The day of her attention to detail was like no other and she always seemed to know exactly what to do to get the perfect shot. When we got our photos back, to say we were speechless would be an understatement. She did such a beautiful job and captured so many moments that mean just so much to the both of us. We’ve already recommended her to friends and will continue to use her for any photography needs in the future! Thank you so much again from the bottom of our hearts.

"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. 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."

"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!"

"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 ☺️."

She capturing amazing images of my son (despite his constant movement).I highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer, that you hire Josee Van Wissen Photography. You will not regret it!"


"Amazing from start to end! To say that I am still speechless at the experience that Josée provided would be an understatement. From the day I messaged her with interest in having photos taken, she has been an absolute delight. She went above and beyond in every way possible; from sending me a video on how to sign a document online, to making last minute changes for a better location for our session, to having a few sneak peaks available early to make a birthday gift possible. I am so happy that I chose to work with her and cannot wait to find another excuse to do this all over again. The final products are breathtaking and these photos are already beautiful memories that will have a space on my wall and in my heart for years to come. Thank you for everything!"

"I had never done a photoshoot prior to the one I did with Josée, so at the time I didn't know how to model in front of a camera. Josée's professional yet fun loving attitude took away any insecurities I may have had, and made the experience feel like just a fun hang out. On top of the great photoshoot experience, the final product turned out so much better than I could have expected. She puts so much love and care into her work, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer."
