Monstrous Joy was made for people who are passionately in love and want to show it. We focus on intimacy. We love being able to capture emotion and sincerity in our work. We tend to do as little posing as possible and really focus on the interactions of every couple, whether that be on a couch playing video games or on the beach running around and drawing hearts on the wet sand. Whether they be fantasies or just every day moments we make them happen and we strive for honesty and a sense of the epic. This kind of photography falls into a varying range of styles from candid (photojournalistic) to being inspired by classical art
While looking at Pinterest I came to a realization. With every subject I photograph, I edit colors not to make photos look vintage for the sake of them looking old- but I do it for the sake of keeping them timeless. I think that there is a quality in the “vintage” color schemes that allows images to remain current- even 50 years later. Every subject exudes different energies and different feelings and to be able to express those with color is truly an amazing thing.
As for the people behind Monstrous Joy- We're down to earth, stylish, art loving, coffee drinking, mac addicted, dancing fools who cherish their calling in life and would love nothing more than to share your wedding day with you because we're big softies.
We'd love to hear from you and talk about all your plans! Call us at (626)756-6538 or Email us!

My Husband & I first met Jhovany Quiroz through family a few years ago. He felt like a close friend from the first moment we met him, he's a very sweet & down-to-earth guy! He shot our engagement photo session about a year ago & the photos were beautiful! We had a vision in our minds that we wanted to shoot it in Laguna Beach & Downtown Los Angeles. It was an ALL DAY adventure & the finished product of photos was amazing! =)Sent on 06/07/2011
Of course, we wanted him to shoot our wedding, which was just recently on 5/14/11 in Puerto Vallarta. He photographed the entire weekend! He just brought over all of our photos & video the other night & I cried tears of happiness the entire time! Everything was beyond amazing! He really captured every moment & emotion of all of our family, friends, my Husband & I to where it makes you feel like you are actually there celebrationg with us, just by looking at the photos & watching the video! We got to relive our wedding all over again & it was wonderful! =)

We have had the opportunity to have Jhovany Quiroz with us since the beginning. He first took our engagement photos for us, and when we saw those we were awe struck. I'm very sure that "awe struck" doesn't even encompass how we truly felt at the time. His absolutely unique style, professionalism, talent, and character made us realize that we wanted to do whatever it took to have him do our wedding as well.Sent on 06/13/2011
There are so many moments to where we look at the photos of our wedding, and just want to cry because of how beautifully the day was captured through Jhovany's lens. He took the simplicity of our wedding, and with his talented photographic eye, he captured the purest essence of our ceremony, as well as reception. Being able to have beautiful photos was something we wanted so badly. The way he immortalized our love for each other is now the gift that we will be able to pass to our family for generations.

We met Jhovany through a friend and we were very comfortable with him from the beginning. His outlook on photography was amazing. He stated that he captures photos while "keeping in mind how they would look on a billboard." And while we weren't sure what "style" we wanted for our wedding/reception, he definitely captured some beautiful moments of our wedding. His professionalism and his ease to work with definitely makes me happy to recommend him for any special event.Sent on 03/07/2012
Jhovany Q. of Monstrous Joy is a pleasure to work with and know. He has a keen eye for unique photography and is always brimming with ideas! Although his talents are depicted in a charming vintage style (his specialty) - his array of photo options are varietal from black and white to cool and modern. Every photo is shown with clarity and edited beautifully. If you choose to work with him, you will not be disappointed!
We have had the great pleasure of working with Jhovany Quiroz Photography and they were great to work with. Very professional, extremely friendly and easy going. We have have worked with hundreds of photographers and not all of them leave a positive impression or are even memorable for that matter but this team surely is. If you like the style of photography they offer you are going to love working with them. Really one of the friendliest photography teams I've encountered, a true pleasure.
