Each of us experience life differently... and I love to capture how we do that. Just how momentous a wedding day can be... Just how zany and fun family time is. My style is an amalgamation of my personal artistic touch with a candid approach. My effort is to provide work that is reflective of the events, feelings, and moments that occur. Whether it be a pivotal moment like "I do" or a quiet intimate glance, my aim is to document your wedding moment by moment. My photography is complimented most by my vigor, enthusiasm, and creative drive! I strive to give clients authentic, candid, and creative photography.

Speechless. Mindy is the GOAT.
Couples of all kinds seeking the highest quality, documentarian style photography for their wedding day: look no further than Mindy Joy Photography.Sent on 04/20/2019
Let me begin this review with this: as a photographer myself, I searched for hours and days to find someone who had what we were looking for in style, documentation tendencies, and eye for the art of photography and a clear sense of humor—Mindy went above and beyond the call of duty.
She and her lovely assistant drove through Chicago rush hour traffic to meet us on a summer afternoon/evening along the Chicagoland lakefront. They wasted no time in helping us both relax, get into the mood to be photographed and truly be our authentic selves. We are not cliché, pose-y people, and I truly feel that Mindy documented our pre-marital love in the most authentic, flawless and unique way. Our friends and family were mind blown just by the engagement pictures, and we have them hung around our home, soon to be coupled with wedding day pictures.
As for the wedding, we were truly rendered speechless. Mindy and Brian came in with figurative guns-a-blazing—they were present, enthusiastic and genuinely excited to be part of our day. Mindy blended right into my group of friends, the bridal party genuinely interested in being members of her fan club. They worked diligently, quickly, quietly and creatively to help document the most subtle yet arguably most beautiful shots of the day. From the individual portraits, to the first look, to the ceremony, to the dance floor and beyond—looking back through our pictures brought back the heart pounding, adrenaline filled moments, the overwhelmed-with-happiness tears, and belly laughter at some of the things she and Brian managed to capture. She ended the evening with a big hug and handing us a stack of mini polaroids—pictures she had taken THAT DAY—as a momento for the evening. I can think of nothing else we received that made us feel the way those polaroids made us feel. They were immediately shared with friends and family and looked at hundreds of times in just a matter of days—what an incredibly thoughtful, loving and brilliant way to send off your bride and groom.
Anyone and everyone who is looking for authentic, beautiful, REAL documentation of one of the biggest days of your life should seek out Mindy Joy Photography. We are eternally grateful for her time, talent, patience, energy and her willingness to share her innate talent and brilliance with the world through her photography.
