welcome, I'm joy.

I fell in love with wedding photography when I married my best friend in August of 2012. My photography journey started long before then as I shot film as a hobby, but it wasn't until I was engaged and majoring in graphic design that this hobby transformed into a passion for wedding photography. I've been capturing love stories ever since, and I love what I do.

I'm truly passionate about my work and nothing is more meaningful to me than the ability to tell a unique love story through artistic imagery. Radiant natural light and capturing expressions of joy are what inspire me most. I believe wedding photographs are truly a couple’s first heirlooms. My priority at each wedding is to capture the day in a creative way so that it can be relived and experienced over and over again.

I’m a fine art wedding photographer

I was sitting in a graphic design class when I realized I wanted to be a photographer.

I started my business in 2013 and haven’t looked back.

I spend my days photographing beautiful love stories and helping other photographers do the same.

I have an adorable fluffy corgi named Jack and I love dogs!

I collect vintage and polaroid cameras
