Combining adventure & elegance

We'll be a perfect match if...

..your ideal wedding day consists of luxury, mixed with a bit of excitement. Marrying the love of your life is nothing to take lightly. We believe in capturing your love story with all of the romance and movement it involves. 

From cozying up with the love of your life

...contrasted by Arizona cacti all around you at your engagement photos, to laughing gleefully after tossing your bouquet into the air, every couple we meet adds their own flair of adventure to the wedding.

We can’t wait to meet you, but in case you’d like to know a little more about us, read along.

First things first

let's start with what we have in common


We both have Bachelor’s Degrees in Fine Arts, with a focus on photography. That’s how we met, but it was our pregnancies and love of photography that bonded us.

You guessed it! We’re both moms, and we pride ourselves on adding our “mom personalities” to your wedding day. That means that we do everything we can to eliminate as much stress as possible for you during your wedding day. 

We love our families and owe a lot to them.

We’re both hopeless romantics! That’s why wedding photography was such a perfect fit for us. We’re genuinely passionate about what we do.

Meet Jo!

Although I’m the business-minded half of this partnership, I’m also a total hopeless romantic! 
If I’m watching a movie, you’ll catch me watching a rom-com 9/10 times. I absolutely love all the mushy gushy love stories (yours included)!

My favorite moments in this job are:
1. When the groom sees his bride for the very first time
2. Grinning from ear to ear, teary eyed, when I edit photos and see the joy and love we captured between the couple radiating from my screen

I’m a Gilmore Girls-style coffee drinker. I totally want a Rory/Lorelai relationship with my son, Tristan, when he grows up. (I even call Tristan, “kid” like Lorelai does with Rory.)
I speak fluent Chinese (Cantonese).
I love anything chocolate, but for some reason, I don’t enjoy chocolate cake and brownies. 
I’m pretty sure I’m addicted to the Bachelor/Bachelorette series. (Who isn’t?)

Get to know Alli!

I still get an adrenaline rush every time I meet a new client. Meeting you and hearing your story feels so new and exciting. It’s something I love about being a wedding photographer. 
I want to show the world certain feelings that would otherwise be lost with the passing of time.

When it comes to wedding photography, I love:
Hearing endless love stories and seeing the uniqueness of each wedding.
Meeting clients like you!

Just like Jo, I love reality shows like Jersey Shore and 90 Day Fiance. 
I’m a big fan of arts and crafts (especially with the kids). The artist in me can’t help but take on another DIY project and I enjoy seeing my personality come out in the pieces of items placed around my home. (My favorite pieces are the coffee table I refinished to look like burnt barn wood and the small, colored mirror collection hung in my walkway.)
I love the heat and very much so do not like the cold!
Late night movie marathons are my “me” time. It’s a time of recharging for me.
My husband, Kenny, has given me everything I’ve ever wanted in a life partner, but it’s my mom who is my best friend!

we'd love to get to know you

a little love note

Our experience with Joanne and Allison with Wander Back Photography was beyond amazing! They took the time to get to know us during the session and made us feel so comfortable while taking our photos. And they even made a blog post! I’m so impressed with the final images, we will for sure be using them again! Thank you!

Anna & Kyle
