About Joe Barnes

Untitled photo

Hello there!  My name is Joe Barnes and I have lived in the Hampton Roads area all my life.  I live with my wife Jill in the Western Branch section of Chesapeake, VA.  I am a Dad to 3 boys and 1 girl , all of whom are grown with their own families.  I am a VERY PROUD Poppa/Pops to 5 granddaughters and 3 grandsons.  I also am proud to say " I have been a Chesapeake Firefighter/Paramedic for 25 years." Now retired.....

Thank you for stopping by to view my website.  I first became interested in photography in 2004 as I attended my son's baseball games and was able to capture the action, intense and emotional moments as the players ran the bases, hit, caught and threw the ball.  Taking pictures for the baseball team, then presented me with the opportunity to take football pictures,  which I continue to do through "Recruit 757" .  I also was able to attend my only daughter's dance competitions which allowed me the opportunity to catch moments of every emotion thinkable as the girls danced their hearts out.  Literally,  "dancing as if no one were watching!"    

  Being able to capture those moments and share with the instructors, coaches and families and hearing the ooo's,  awww's and laughter as they saw what the audience could see was priceless.

I have taken photography classes through Tidewater Community College and through New York Photography.  I continue to attend seminars and photography events as the photography world is constantly evolving to new levels.  I enjoy capturing your MOST memorable/personal moments whether it is through a Senior or Family Portrait, most of all being a part of your BIG Day as you marry your Special someone.  I would be honored to be a part of your "Special" day!  I have a 2nd photographer who works with me during your wedding day,  so as not to miss those special, unspoken moments with your family and friends.

As you browse through my website,  please feel free to  contact me should you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.  You can contact me by cell 757-619-2073 or by email

Thank you again for stopping by!  I hope to hear from you soon!
