Joanna Tano Portraits

Maui Family Photographer



Phone: (808) 280-5230
Joanna Tano, born and raised on the island of Maui, started photographing friends as a teenager. Her interest led her to begin taking photography classes both in high school and at the University of Hawaii, where she learned all she could about composition, lighting, darkroom development and printing. Her strong foundation in photographic techniques prepared her for a fulltime career as a photographer for the last 14 years. Her technical prowess has made photography second nature to her, and her congenial personality helps to set both adults and children at ease during a portrait session. As a wife and mother of three, she understands the important part that photographs play in evoking memories. Her knowledge of Maui’s coast, including the many gorgeous beaches in Wailea and Makena, and her knowledge of the light qualities at different seasons and times of day, allows her to create an exquisite backdrop for your Maui portrait.

Don’t take my word for it! Listen to these happy clients!

‘Joanna and her husband were absolute professionals. They had planned everything out very nicely to make the most of our time with them. They had photographed other couples on Lanai and as a result, were very knowledgeable about where to take some really stunning pictures. We couldn’t be happier with the pictures, the service, the professionalism, and the finished product! I would whole-heartedly recommend Joanna to anyone getting married in Hawaii.’


‘We had the privilege of having Joanna Tano photograph our wedding at Four Seasons Resort Maui and were absolutely thrilled right from our first encounter with Joanna. She immediately reached out, clearly explained package options with us, greeted us on our wedding day and was a delight to work with. Joanna captured hundreds of special moments beautifully. She was so quick to edit and share the photos with us. We could not have dreamed of working with a more professional, kind, and lovely photographer. Joanna made us feel very comfortable doing our photo shoot and provided perfect guidance and instruction on how to pose and make our photos stunning. We highly recommend Joanna to anyone looking for a professional photographer!’
