MEET THE BANKERS

Banker Creative is a small business consisting of myself ( Joe ) and my wife Ashley. We are a wedding photography and videography team based in Cleveland, Ohio. However, we love to travel and would love to explore even more new places! We've worked in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Flordia, Colorado, and Utah. When we are at home, we spend a lot of time cooking, working on home projects, and hanging out with our five rescue cats.

YOUR EXPERIENCE

Our goal is to capture imagery that is 100% real & authentic! We know most people have never been professionally photographed before so it can feel awkward. Our job is to alleviate the weird and uncomfortable. Interactive posing, combined with a documentary approach, allows us to capture your natural chemistry in a fun, stress free way. We'll be by your side from getting ready to reception, we want you to feel comfortable when working with us.

We highly recommend booking an engagement session with your wedding package. It's a great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera, build a relationship with us before the big day, and know exactly what to expect from us. 

On your wedding day, we focus on doing everything we can to make sure you get to enjoy your special day to the fullest. We know that you've invested much of your time and hard earned money carefully planning and preparing for your day. We want you to be able to relax and enjoy it!

We're excited to capture some of life's greatest moments and share our passion with others! We're so thankful for everyone who has helped us become an award winning business. ​

OUR STORY

We met in college in 2011. Originally, I had aspirations to become a Marine Biologist. Ashley, wanted me take a photography course with her and It was a hobby for me at the time, so I agreed. I had no idea taking that class with her would change my entire future. I wouldn't want it any other way. 

I spent a few years working with local musicians photographing concerts, while also working part time as an assistant photographer for a small business that specialized in wedding photography. 

In 2018, Joe Banker Photography was born. I became a full time wedding photographer and a small business owner; I have never looked back.

Ashley has always been my biggest supporter and a behind the scenes business partner. She worked on things like branding and website design until 2020 when she starting photographing weddings alongside me.

We compliment each other's strengths and weaknesses and work very together well as a team.

On November 11, 2023, I married my best friend, and we officially became

Mr + Mrs Banker! We decided we needed to rebrand from Joe Banker Photography to Banker Creative. It best represents us, our team work, and what we do creatively. We're very passionate about our small business and are consistently working to further our expertise in the craft.

Banker Outdoors was born out of our love for the great outdoors!

We wanted a place to share our hobbies and the activities we enjoy when we are not documenting love stories or hanging out with our cats at home.

Fishing specifically has always been a big part of my life and I love sharing those experiences with Ashley. Whether we are ice fishing on frozen ponds, trolling for walleye on Lake Erie, or surf fishing on the beach, somehow, Ashley always finds a way to out fish me!
