AWARD WINNING NEWBORN, CHILD, FAMILY + HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER based in rye, new york
"Jo is the BEST. Not only does she take the most beautiful photos, but she is a joy to work with and simply be around. Upon meeting her you immediately feel at ease which translates into naturally beautiful photos. From working with my 1 week old on a newborn shoot, to my entire extended family for a larger shoot, she can speak to and capture any life moment; and does it with kindness and grace. I look forward to many more shoots with Jo!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Jo. She not only took beautiful pictures of our family but also helped me the day of the shoot to style our outfits. We have two very active kids under 4 years and she still managed to capture some beautiful pictures!!! Jo will definitely be taking our pictures over and over again!"
I was very hesitant about getting family photos. How would they turn out? How would our children fare during the session? Could we figure out what to wear?! All of these concerns were totally removed once we started working with Jo. She was very responsive before the shoot, helping to guide us with outfit suggestions and mood boards. The shoot itself was super fun, the time flew by and despite still not knowing if she had captured anything, we left feeling like it hadn't been so bad after all! Fast forward to the photos being ready and we were delighted! Jo had captured us in the most wonderful way, the smiles, the glances at the children, the ease with which we operate as a family. We are so happy with the final gallery of photos and I know we will be back next year to have Jo capture us again!
"Jo is fantastic! She did professional headshots for me, and I'm super happy with the results. I would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking for a professional photo. She was responsive and flexible, working with my schedule and adapting location as needed. She coached me on how to get the best, most flattering shot, and the photos were great!!"
"Jo is amazing!! She really is able to capture the emotion and love between the people she is photographing. We had a wonderful experience working with her from start to finish and couldn't be happier with the results. We will absolutely use her again!"
"Jo is amazing! She has been photographing my family for years. She captures the personality of my children perfectly & is a joy to work with. I can't recommend her enough!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Jo. This past session was our 5th time working together and as always it was such a pleasure! She is very responsive both before and after the session. During the session she is engaging and always gets my sometimes reluctant little one to feel at ease and have fun. The quality of the pictures are beautiful and I look forward to working with her again and again to capture my family."
"I couldn't recommend Jo Bryan Photography more highly! I was dreading having a professional work photo taken, but Jo actually made it enjoyable. Not only is she an extremely skilled photographer, but she also has a gift for making people feel relaxed and natural. Jo is also extremely professional--the housekeeping part of my experience was simple, efficient and best of all--I had my photos in less than a week which I felt was above and beyond. The only problem I had was that I had a hard time choosing!"
"After pouring over all the images, I can honestly say they are the best family photos I've ever been part of. Jo is as patient and kind as she is talented. Despite four rowdy kids ages 4-9, she was able to capture some of the most precious moments through her lens. Working with Jo was great and she made what usually is my kids least favorite family activity (family pictures) so easy! She's flexible, friendly, calm and makes everyone feel at ease. I will treasure all the photos she took of us this year and am looking forward to continuing to work with her well into the future."
