Hi ... Thanks for dropping in on my Profile...
My name is Yohti Jenkins and I have been in the photography industry for 19yrs. My passion for photography began when I was about 10 and I had my first camera with which I use to take photos of everyone and everything.
This passion continued in High School where I majored in photography and managed to be one of the top two students for many years in our Art Classes and had the delight of using a dark room for countless hours. I graduated year 12 and immediately got a job in a photo lab as I wanted to pursue a career in Photography. For 12 yrs I was a qualified photographic laboratory operator exceling in colour management and professional printing. In that time I had invaluable experience in working with professional photographers images, which has proved to be a major asset to me now in this digital age of photo enhancement for superb quality output of my prints and albums.
I became involved with Wedding Photography about 10 years ago. I was fortunate enough to be asked by a close friend who trusted my expertise, to shoot her wedding. Since then I haven't looked back! I specialise in Wedding Photography as this seems to have just naturally occured over the years...
I believe that my vibrant and genuine nature is a major appeal for a couple when choosing me to be their photographer. I am proud to say that I continually receive praise and delightful comments after every wedding. This is fantastic as I want to know that my clients are happy with the total package they receive from 'Yohti Images'. That is, professional and personal service and exceptional images, both in capture and visual finish of the product.
I really do shoot from the heart. I get excited about what I do! I believe in what I do!... and, I see it as an honour to be asked to shoot someone's wedding day! It is an amazing day, full of so much fun, laughter, excitement, emotions and treasured moments and to have a couple allow me to share that with them is very special. Every Wedding I do is as important as the next.
Although I am dedicated to capturing the best images possible on your wedding day, it is not about me and my agenda!... I am completely focused on you and making sure that I fit in with your bridal party and guests so everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. This enables me to capture all the little moments that reflect who you truly are and the true interactions with you and your loved ones as you relax and enjoy their company.
I love people and as I said before, I am passionate about photography so I believe I have the best career possible. I suppose I'm a bit sentimental as well so I am seeing your day as if I am a personal friend so I notice the things that would be important to you. I think that being involved like that helps me to capture moments in a much more intimate way instead of being an unemotional bystander just 'doing a job'.
I am involved in running a photographers networking lunch group and attend many seminars and workshops to improve and advance in knowledge, techniques, business principals and systems, production etc.... All of which will ensure I am constantly challenging myself and excelling in the industry and this in turn will give me the ability to provide the best to my clients.
I'd love to meet you over a cuppa so give me a ring or email me (see my contact details) and we'll make arrangements for you to see the amazing albums and product quality on offer at 'Yohti Images'...
A Testimony from recent Couple Saida & Zane:
"Fortunately for us, our photographer was everything we could ask for and more. I would just like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Yohti from Yohti Images for all her efforts on our big day. Her work truly does speak for itself as we had numerous guests comment on how fantastic she was. Her professionalism, attention to detail, natural and spontaneous photography techniques, creative use of the surroundings, infectious personality and ability to make both us and our guests feel comfortable on our wedding day, are attributes that make her so amazing. I have had no hesitations at all in recommending her to anyone getting married and she truly is great value for money. Thank you Yohti for your continued professionalism, friendliness and guidance both before, during and after the most important day of our life – you’re a star!"
Another Testimony from recent couple Danielle & Nigel:
"We were referred to Yohti of 'Yohti Images’ by Dave, one of Nigel's relatives, who does Wedding Videography. Dave said that Yohti is the most caring and loving person. She makes your photos come to life and also captures those intimate moments, which is what we wanted. She relates to you in a way I can't describe.
When I saw our photos I was in shock at how good we looked. It was FANTASTIC. I would recommend Yohti to anyone. She makes you feel number one and always talks to you like you're a person, not a client. She was what made our day truly special.
At the end of the day, all you have are the photos (which is why you want a great photographer.) We have a great memory in the photos Yohti did. Looking at them now, I know our wedding was wonderful. Thanks Yo!! "
I am currently entering the AIPP awards for the very first time in 10 yrs... Fingers Crossed that I will score enough points to receive either a Silver, Silver Distinction or a Gold...These three awards indicate a superior level above the Professional standard expected of any full time Professional Photographer.
In the meantime I'd love to use this space to give you a bit of an insight into my specialty:
Weddings and Albums!
Gorgeous photos that have been captured from the heart need to be presented in an amazing album with the professional and unique touch that your special wedding day deserves.... ONLY THE BEST will do.... !
Photos to 'wow' over and to instantly jump back in time as you re-live the emotions of your wedding day again and again for years to come. Photos and albums that will excite your family and friends when you proudly display them for the first time.
Can you imagine all the oo's and aah's as everyone looks at your images; and the laughter when you all reminisce about your cute niece lifting her flowergirl skirt during the ceremony; or have a few tears with your mum when you see the photo of your ever-so-proud Dad walking you down the aisle; or the little cheeky comments from your girlfriends when they see that sexy shot of you as your handsome hubby was kissing your neck... it's never ending. The list can go on, and it does ... for years and years when you re-live your memories of all the little things that make up your wonderful wedding day and they are preserved for ever in your magnificent photos and album...
Yohti Images would love to invite you to view first hand these popular and 'MUST SEE' albums which will be the envy of all of your friends...
"I really look forward to hearing from you and giving you the personal service you deserve... Talk soon .... Yohti"
Andrea Bartlett “As a professional make-up artist in the wedding industry, I often get to work along side a number of different photographers on a bride’s special day. Yohti is by far one of the best photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. She is always fun, professional, punctual and produces the finest work. I love her style! Her photos and albums just speaks for themselves and that’s why I recommend her to all my brides.”

Anne Bartram My daughter Angela and Leny married in December and contracted Yohti Images to take their wedding photographs. I have to say that Yohti was amazing. From the moment she stepped through the door of the house she made all four bridesmaids and Bride feel completely at ease and went about taking some beautiful photo's. She did not mind the fact my son in law and myself were also clicking away with cameras and video recording and at times probably getting in her way. She was open to suggestions, in fact, welcomed them as she liked to have the wedding parties input.
Just as we arrived at the wedding ceremony venue the rain came down in bucket loads and as the wedding was meant to be outside Yohti had to quickly improvise with regards to the photo's. She took some amazing photo's using what she could find at the venue. Lucky for us the sun came back out as soon as the ceremony was over and she was able to take photo's outside in the lovely grounds as well.
As I do not live in Australia, I had to wait for some time to see the wedding album. I have to say it was worth the wait. The album is one of the best, if not the best, I have seen and would have no hesitation in recommending Yohti for any occasion that requires the need of a professional photographer.
Thanks Yohti you were great. Anne Bartram
Events and Functions Manager The following is excerpts from emails received from the Riverglenn about a wedding I did there and they actually ended up featuring my photos for a major advert campaign...
"I’ve just been having a peek at the photos from Jessie & Luke's wedding and they looked lovely!! There are some great ones in the grounds and on the deck. I’ve been speaking with our Marketing lady who was also viewing them and there are definitely some that we would love to see if we could use in the future..... "
"I’m so pleased that’s possible to use those images – we were looking at the photos on the deck in particular and they are just gorgeous. We don’t often have many on the deck so they all look spectacular.
That sounds great- we’re always looking for different / unique shots so would love to see them! (referring to any future shoots done there after I offered to send more).
Thanks again for spending some time with me on the 19th, I know you would have had a full day already but it was great to have a chat and have a bit of insight into your work.
Thanks again Yohti, look forward to speaking to you soon.
