About Joseph

My photography melds beautiful landscapes with a candid and intimate style using both black and white film and digital.

I tell YOUR unique story through my lens – capturing the emotion and the moments that you both are experiencing together for the first time, but with a unique artistic perspective.  I find the details that make the two of you unique and your love special…and most importantly I’ll capture your true, authentic selves candidly throughout the day while photographing with black and white films to give a classic and timeless look, but also with digital to give you a modern look with my trademark style.  Please message, call or text me today for a free session where we can get to know each other better.  Plus, I will answer any questions you may have.  Thank you for visiting my site, and I look forward to hearing from you regarding your celebration!

"Joe took our wedding pictures, and we could not be happier with how they turned out! Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of the planning process, and we felt very comfortable after talking to him. He met with us beforehand and we went over our preferences. He has the ability to photograph using different styles, and he really listened to us and our story. He brought an assistant photographer, making sure to capture not just the big wedding moments, but also our guests and little details that we're very glad to have in pictures. We definitely wanted great shots but didn't want it to feel staged or fake. Both he and his assistant made us feel at ease and comfortable; it all felt very natural. His pricing was super reasonable, we received the pictures sooner than we thought, and they were beyond amazing! Every one who sees them loves them, we definitely recommend him!"

Anna and gerardo engagement shoot Long Beach by Joseph Barber photography

"Joseph is immensely talented (yet very humble about it). He takes amazing photographs that capture the feeling of the moment. My husband and I contacted Joseph for an engagement shoot last year and we loved the photos so much that we asked him to be our wedding photographer as well. He truly cares about giving you the best experience not only during photo shoots, but after as well by providing high quality images and prints. You won't easily find someone as talented and kind as him in SoCal!"

"What an amazing experience! Joe did our engagement shoot and not only did he make us so relaxed and at ease but the photos were incredible! He took a mix of portrait style photos along with some more artistic photos that will be treasured forever!! We had such a great time with him and he made the process so enjoyable!! I recommend him to everyone and will continue to use him anytime we have a photo worthy event!!!"
