About Joel Thomas Photography

Joel Thomas Photography is a wedding and portrait photography service located in Central Pennsylvania. Joel loves bringing out genuine expression and emotion in his photographs and believes that if you don't have fun taking the photo then you won't like the photo (no matter how good of a photo it is). He strives to make all of his clients feel comfortable and natural while he captures your day. His style is expressive, fun, and timeless. Although based in Central PA, Joel Thomas Photography is more than willing to travel to Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore, New York, and beyond to photograph weddings.

Experience
Joel has been involved in photography since 2000 when he joined the yearbook staff at his middle school. He explored the world of photography as a hobby until 2012 when he photographed his first wedding as a second shooter. After a full year of training as a second shooter, he ventured out on his own and photographed weddings part-time. In 2015 he left his corporate job and became a full-time wedding photographer. His wife Kristin joined him part-time as his second shooter in 2016.

Services Offered
Joel Thomas Photography wedding packages all include 2 professional photographers (it's always Joel and usually his wife Kristin... if Kristin is unavailable for your day then it will be another professional wedding photographer), an engagement session, an engagement guestbook, a minimum of 8 hours of coverage, high-resolution files downloadable from an online gallery, prints and more! You and your loved ones will be able to enjoy your high-resolution photos as:

  • Albums
  • Mounted Prints (Canvas, Metal, Wood, etc)
  • Digital files (can share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc)
  • Printing rights (personal use)
  • Prints

    Easiest Choice of Our Wedding

    I knew I wanted to hire Joel Thomas Photography before I was even engaged. Joel had been the wedding photographer for a few of my husband and I’s friends and after seeing those photos, my decision was made. Beautiful, detail-oriented photos that would capture our special day forever. At our engagement session, he seemed to understand us perfectly and was able to get us to have FUN amidst the stressful planning process. Joel was organized right from the beginning – creating a timeline for our wedding day, communicating thoroughly, and leaving no stone unturned. Then, as Covid-19 kept throwing us curveballs, he kept everything easy and flexible. We moved forward with our August 2020 wedding and although there were many obstacles, we never had to worry about photography. He made our guests and our wedding party feel comfortable & safe, while still capturing all the special moments of the day. Choosing Joel Thomas Photography was one of the easiest decisions we ever made for our wedding. Highly recommended!

    Highly Recommend!

    Working with Joel has been a great experience so far! Our engagement photos came out so much better than we could have ever hoped for (they are a part of all his wedding packages), and the shoot was a lot more fun and way less awkward than we were expecting. Our original wedding date was in the beginning of May (we were so close!) but due to the coronavirus outbreak we had to postpone to October & Joel has been 100% awesome and accommodating throughout the whole process. Thank goodness we have vendors like him who have made this difficult time so much easier to handle!

    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!
