I’m Joanna Adams – Forever addicted to adventure.
Before an adventurer, I am a storyteller. After spending time studying broadcasting in college, I knew my passion was telling the stories of others. Every person is unique and incredible and I love to tell the stories we have within ourselves. Before we even get to the photo making process and dreaming of this adventure together, I want to know about YOU. How did you meet the love of your life? What are your wildest adventure dreams? What made you choose this adventurous elopement over a big wedding?
Ultimately, this is YOUR adventure. Maybe you enjoy hiking 20 miles for those epic photos taking in the wild spaces and air; or perhaps you are more of a roadside adventurer. Either way, I can promise you a few things, I’m all the way in and we will have fun! If you are not having fun through this photo process, what are we even doing here? Back to that storytelling part. My goal is to make images that your great-grandchildren look at and remember this story of yours was something extraordinary.
Photography for me is not a job. It’s an extension of who I am and the wanderlust that consumes me. Winter time, I’m hitting the slopes with a snowboard strapped on and polar plunging. Summer time, I’m finding the best and gnarliest peak to climb or bushwhack to. Fall time, I’m chasing wild animals and providing meat for my family. My current hunting obsession is archery elk and nothing replaces the tingling sensation when one is echoing their calls through the woods back at you.
I was born and raised in this amazing state of Montana. I spent my childhood years running around Glacier in beat up tennis shoes, jeans, and definitely no survival gear. I’ve grown up, purchased some real gear and am much better prepared for whatever comes my way in the mountains. What hasn’t changed is my love for this state and these gorgeous mountains. My home is found at the base of Glacier National Park loving on my husband and four rambunctious kids.
I have had the opportunity to explore some amazing parts of the world including Iceland, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, and Peurto Rico. My bucket list of future locations is quite long and I am always open to traveling for epic photos.
