The Ultimate Photographer!
We took our engagement photos with Joel in October. We cannot recommend him enough! He is very responsive to emails, which I appreciate. We love his photography style- very natural and genuine. It was our first time taking professional pictures and Joel made it so easy and fun. Joel also gave us great suggestions of locations when we told him the kind of settings we wanted and made sure we took pictures of exactly what we wanted. We love our pictures so much! We got so many back and it is so hard to choose a favorite :) We hope to work with him again!Sent on 11/23/2019

Joel was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish! From our first phone call he gave me a great run down of what to expect if I booked with him. During our engagement session he made two camera shy people feel very comfortable, and by the end we were having so much fun. Same for our wedding day! Joel captured all the best moments, including a lucky rainbow. Looking through the photos lets me relive every picture perfect moment of our wedding day and the fun of the dance floor. You won't regret booking with Joel!Sent on 12/01/2019

Simply the BEST photographer!!
We had an absolute blast working with Joel! He is so fun and easy to work with, especially for us because my now husband and I are super awkward in front of cameras. But he kept the whole experience light and fun and professional! And our pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined. He was able to capture our silly selves in our engagement session and our wedding photos and made the whole experience such a joy from start to finish. We have the best memories in these photos and we can’t recommend him highly enough!!Sent on 12/02/2019
Joel and his wife are exceptionally creative artists with a vision that produce results guaranteed to amaze. They are kind, patient and partner with their clients for a wonderful and imaginative experience. We would love for them to return to our venue to capture even more outstanding moments.
Had the great pleasure of working with Joel at a wedding and I can't express how awesome it was! Being a DJ, it's imperative that all the vendors work cohesively together to make the special day run smoothly. Joel always was courteous and flexible to provide feedback on how he could get his photos, while still keeping within the timeline of events. I can't wait to work with this exceptional vendor again!
