Hi, I am Joy


Your Family photographer

My name is Joy Kochakkan. I'm a photographer based in Christchurch, New Zealand. My family have been New Zealand residents now for several years. As a family, we have love and pride of our country especially as it has allowed me to follow my love of photography. I have a passion for photography, bringing my heart to my work and truly enjoy what I do. Since I got my first camera decades ago, photography has become my passion.

I have been photographing wedding, events, products, maternity, portraits, passport photos etc. and I'm happy to discuss any special needs you may have. JK Images offers you my personal expertise delivering high resolution photographs. These images can be delivered in a digital format, in print and on canvas, albums etc.

Photographs help you capture those special occasions, memories you can treasure forever. A well captured photo is something to display with pride, to look at often, and feel a bit of joy every time. I do this amazing job so that I can give people beautiful images of the special moments in their lives. My reputation as a photographer has generated very favorable reviews.

Our Philosophy

Photography is Poetry

“Photography is a response that has to do with the momentary recognition of things. Suddenly you’re alive. A minute later there was nothing there. I just watched it evaporate. You look one moment and there’s everything, next moment it’s gone. Photography is very philosophical.” Joel Meyerowitz

“If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture.”
