04/06/19 Wedding- Joel Thomas Photography Review
Joel was a FANTASTIC photographer. From the day we met him at a wedding expo, through our engagement shoot, and finally our wedding day he had the best energy. His positive attitude and encouraging words made us feel relaxed and comfortable during both the engagement shoots and wedding day. It was no surprise that our photos turned out so natural and beautiful!! We are now expecting our first child and we're looking forward to working with Joel during our maternity shoot! Thank you Joel for all of your hard work!!Sent on 09/30/2019

We met Joel & Kristen at a bridal show and were immediately in love with their work! Joel took our ideas for both our engagement and wedding pictures and turned them into our favorite memories. We couldn't be happier with our pictures and experience working with Joel!Sent on 05/02/2019

Joel is absolutely amazing! He is so laid back and makes you feel so at ease. He accommodates you and your schedule and is super flexible. I highly recommend him for all your photo needs.Sent on 06/21/2018
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!
