It is truly a “joy” to work with Vanessa. Her quality is unlike any other. You will look back at your photographs and truly feel the emotions and ambiance from your special day. Each time I look through my album (which is often) I truly feel as if I am reliving the best day of my life. We started our journey with Vanessa by first taking our engagement photos in Central Park. We had so many great shots we could have filled two albums. This was also a great way for my husband and I to get a little more comfortable in front of the camera. Vanessa does an amazing job at providing directions as to where to look, how to stand and just in general look and feel natural. Between the time of our engagement pictures to our wedding day we were in contestant communication discussing things like our photo must-have list, locations to take pictures after church and the day-of timeframe. Once our day finally arrived Vanessa and her team arrived to my parents house ready to take on the day. Their calm and professional manner allowed us all to be comfortable and kept us on our tight schedule, especially taking family portraits at the church (we have a large family!) The day/night flew by all while Vanessa and her team captured the memories that would last us a lifetime. It was on our flight home from our honeymoon in Italy that we received an email that our proofs would be ready shortly, and boy were they. As the hype of the wedding was beginning to come down, we were overjoyed to get our proofs so quickly to share and reminisce over. Within weeks of getting our proofs we had already ordered our thank-you cards, chose our album and ordered prints to hang in our home. Because of the quality of the technology Vanessa uses, we were virtually able to see our album come alive. We were also able to physically hold the many different albums and print options. I would recommend Vanessa Joy time and time again and am so grateful for her talent and passion.Sent on 02/26/2018

Best in the business
Vanessa and her team are the absolute best! We started working with Vanessa immediately after getting engaged hoping to secure our wedding date and plan for engagement photos. We were fortunate enough to work with Vanessa a few years ago for my sister’s wedding so we were already familiar with her professionalism, expertise, and style. Vanessa and her team assisted us every step of the way.Sent on 07/10/2019
We worked out the day of timeline weeks in advance which helped organize the timing for the rest of the vendors. Coming from someone who is usually on the shyer side especially in front of a camera, Vanessa made me feel extremely comfortable. Once she started shooting, I never gave it a second thought as all the poses felt so natural and like “me”. Vanessa works so efficiently, capturing all the the tiny details as well as organizing large groups for family photos and bridal party shoots.
Vanessa gave us a preview of some photos throughout the day before the end of the night and by the time we left for our honeymoon, we were able to see more photos highlighting some of our favorite moments. We were beyond thrilled with the rest of the photos, getting the chance relive every moment of such an incredible and surreal day! We would definitely recommend Vanessa Joy Photography to anyone looking to capture such an important day in your life.
Vanessa Joy Photography's reply:Your wedding was INCREDIBLE!! It’s been such an incredible honor being a part of your lives and I’m thrilled that you love all of the photos and will cherish these memories for a lifetime. Can’t wait for your ammmmmazing two volume album to be in your hands!

Vanessa and her team are amazing. We could not have asked for a better photographer or experience. From taking our engagement pictures to capturing our wedding day, she is truly talented, professional, creative, fun and great to work with. She really captured the magic of our wedding day. During our family and bridal party pictures, she gives directions clearly and made the process really efficient. She is excellent in managing time and worked with us to ensure we got all the pictures we wanted. The best surprise was receiving a little book of some of our pictures at the end of our wedding night - it was great and really let us get excited about seeing the rest of her work. We would highly recommend her.Sent on 10/07/2018
