    Review of Carrie Joy Photography

    Carrie Joy was an absolute delight to work with before and during my daughter and son-in-law's wedding day.
    She is flexible, she is professional, she is kind, she is patient, and she has a great eye for photographs. Carrie Joy snapped some great photos months before the wedding when my daughter and son-in-law posed for their engagement pictures. Fast forward to the wedding day.
    She also did a great job in the hours leading up to the wedding. Carrie Joy was on site when the bridal party and groomsmen arrived, she helped to arrange some of the most poignant moments of the day, including the first look between my daughter and my son-in-law, the first look between my husband and my daughter, and other special moments before the wedding took place. Carrie Joy was unobtrusive during the wedding, yet, if we thought of a particular shot we wanted, she was responsive to our needs. Carrie Joy takes her work seriously, she has a passion for photography, and she clearly knows what she is doing. I thought some of the pictures she suggested were unique, and well thought out. Based on what we have already viewed, Carrie Joy has a great understanding of lighting, framing, and capturing images that make her photos stand out.
    Carrie Joy was always punctual, caring, kind, and patient. She was an absolute delight to deal with, and her work is outstanding.
    I highly recommend her.

    Best decision we made was choosing Carrie Joy to be our wedding photographer!

    I am so glad we found Carrie Joy. Working with her was the best decision we made for our wedding! Carrie Joy is wonderful!! When we spoke with her on the phone for the first time, we just clicked and knew we had found our wedding photographer. She is genuinely so excited about weddings and is so easy to work with. She is always so positive and happy. She helped us stay within our budget and made great suggestions along the way. Carrie Joy did a great job of getting to know us as a couple so that things felt so easy and comfortable when she photographed us during the engagement session and wedding day. Her blog posts are awesome and very well written. They made us feel like our love story was special and it was a unique way to share our photos with family and friends. And she is super talented! We loved our photos!! She shoots in both digital and film which really sets her work apart. Carrie Joy has a great eye and plays with lighting so well. We cannot wait to make our wedding album with her! Just as a testament to how sweet and thoughtful Carrie Joy is, she knew we were going to Greece for our honeymoon so she sent us an email with some of her favorite places/tips since she had just gone. I would recommend Carrie Joy in a heartbeat to any bride, she is a gem. -Becca and Dustin, 10-13-18

    Becca - Oh my goodness, girl, you just MADE MY WEEK! Thank you SO much for your kind words; I will treasure them always! It's been such a joy getting to know you & Dustin, and I'm so happy I was able to capture this special time in your lives! I also love that we both could share the experience of going to Greece in the same year as well! Woohoo! Much love and appreciation - Carrie Joy

    5 stars - hands down, the best overall vendor at our wedding

    Simply put, Carrie Joy was a joy (sorry!) to work with! She is professional, accommodating, always had a smile on her face, and without a doubt, is one of the nicest human beings I have ever met. From the day we met her, I could tell she loved her job, and that love of what she does shows up in the pictures she takes. We couldn't recommend her more highly - there is a reason every reviewer on this website gives her 5 stars (60+ couples!!). She was our all-star wedding vendor, a true stand out!!

    Perhaps most importantly, both my wife and I (and our family and friends) were extremely impressed with her work product and how quickly she was able to turn around our pictures. All the pictures she takes are yours (like they should be!). Be careful - other photographers we spoke with watermarked their photos and wanted to charge extra for providing digital copies! Carrie Joy also shoots in digital and film, which gives many of her photos a unique look.

    We look forward to working with her on putting together a wedding album!

    Carrie Joy was the absolute best! From the very beginning Carrie Joy was super accommodating and so helpful. We planned a wedding from a distance and Carrie Joy made sure to skype/call to keep in touch and met with us on the random weekends we were in town. She was incredibly organized before and the day of the wedding. My husband and I are absolutely in love with the photos and everybody can't stop raving about them. Even afterwards, with the sneak peaks, online link, and the mail package, everything Carrie Joy did was absolutely amazing.

    Where do I even begin?! Carrie Joy is the absolute best. I couldn't imagine a more perfect photographer for our wedding day. Carrie Joy was more than just a photographer, but also became a friend in the process. She was so professional and organized from day one, and she kept me updated and informed all along the way. Wedding planning can get stressful at times, but I never had to stress with Carrie Joy. I knew I could trust her. I looked forward to the times we got to talk on the phone or meet up for coffee. She is so intentional. She not only listens to your desires for your wedding day, but she wants to get to know you as a person. Carrie Joy has such a talent in photography, and I am SO happy with our wedding photos. I keep looking at them over and over again. Her photography is clear, crisp, and timeless. And she was so intentional to capture the intimate details of our wedding day. I could keep going on and on about Carrie Joy. Trust me when I say this, you will be so pleased with her. I truly couldn't imagine my wedding day without her. I think the thing I loved the most (in addition to all the wonderful photos she took) was the way she made me feel so special. I never felt like just a number on the long list of Brides, but I felt like she took the time to listen and make my vision come to life. Thank you, thank you, thank you Carrie Joy! You are such joy.

    Carrie Joy's name could not be more fitting. Joyful perfectly describes who she is. From the first moment we talked on the phone, I knew we were meant to work with her. She has such a vibrant personality and definitely knows her stuff. She answered every question I threw at her. We first met Carrie Joy at our engagement season and she immediately made us feel at ease. My husband is not a huge fan of taking pictures, but she made it fun and enjoyable despite the heat. The photos came out amazing! I never had any doubts they would. We next heard from Carrie Joy as we approached the wedding to schedule the walk through. Carrie Joy and I visited the venue and she immediately started formulating the plan for the day of. She was willing to drive all over Athens with me to find the perfect first look spot and, of course, we found it. Plus, we got to have a wonderful dinner together afterwards! That's the thing about Carrie Joy. She genuinely cares about you and your fiancé and does become your friend on top of your photographer. She knocked out a wonderfully detailed day of timeline and made sure to have it to us and the coordinator with tons of time before the wedding. She was also able to accommodate our requests for pictures. On the day of, she kept everything running smoothly and on time. She captured every part of the best day of our lives. Now, to the most important part, the pictures are stunning. Every time I look at them I fall more and more in love with them. From the getting ready pictures, the first look with my father, first look with my now husband, the ceremony, and lots of fantastic dancing pictures, Carrie Joy and her assistant really did capture every fantastic moment of the day. I am so thankful the Whitewood Events recommended her to us. She was by far the best choice we made in our entire wedding. You will not go wrong with choosing Carrie Joy to capture your special day. All my love, Carrie Joy

    We had literally THE BEST experience with Carrie Joy! She was so professional, kind, and our pictures are AMAZING. She was worth every penny! She was super organized - meeting with us before hand, putting together an awesome timeline, etc. so we felt really comfortable with her right from the beginning of the process. Also for us, we come from 2 giant families so there were a lot of moving pieces and large group pictures to get and she got them all! We loved our pics of just the two of us and our pics at the reception, the ceremony, everything was perfect! I would highly recommend investing in Carrie Joy - you will not regret it.

    I don't know where to begin to describe how amazing Carrie Joy was as our wedding photographer. From our engagement photos, to our wedding day photos, she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Throughout the entire process, she was so helpful and responsive and made us feel so important. She really took her time with us and made sure that we had the absolute best photos. I am completely blown away with how beautiful our wedding photos turned out, and not to mention, how fast she got the photos back to us after the wedding. She is talented and truly knows her craft!

    Carrie Joy was an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end! We had her shoot both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they came out amazing! She was professional and made taking pictures fun! She truly loves what she does and it shows 100% in her work. When it came time to for our big day we knew our pictures were going to come out amazing and it was not even something we worried about. When she posted a sneak peak on her blog of our wedding pictures my wife and I were blown away! They were perfect and were everything we had hoped for. Choose Carrie Joy for your photos and you will be very glad you did!

    Carrie Joy is an absolute JOY to work with! Very responsive and accommodating. I was a bit stressed before we began pictures but that was quickly subsided after just a few minutes with Carrie Joy. She is very personable and professional, and, of course, talented! I was very pleased with the quality of the pictures- loved that she did digital and film! Also, pictures were ready so fast! Thank you again, Carrie Joy!!

    Working with Carrie Joy was an absolute JOY! We could feel her passion for photography and for her clients from our first interaction and truly felt like she was part of the planning process. It was important to my husband and I that the candid moments were captured as well as those that are more standard and CJ delivered! We had a blast looking back through the photos and were pleased when they arrived just in time for the Holidays - PLUS a couple of weeks earlier than expected. CJ was always there to offer advice when we were both a little uneasy, or unfamiliar with the process. Unlike our daughter, who was completely comfortable in front of the camera, we were a little more hesitant and CJ brought out the best in us both. The moments that she captured during our engagement shoot and at our wedding are memories that we will cherish forever. Thank you so much, CJ. We love you and would do it all over again in a heartbeat! I hope to have the opportunity to partner together again soon.

    Carrie Joy gave us an experience far beyond expectation. As a professional, she is incredibly thorough, organized, and involved. As a person, she is delightfully energetic, passionate, and caring. Our engagement photo session and the coverage for our wedding were perfect. Carrie Joy ensured that we were relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera for staged shots, and then she also captured great candids throughout the night. The quality of her work is absolutely beautiful. I don't know how to talk about photography, but the colors in our photos are stunning and she captured even the most subtle poignant moments. I don't think we will ever stop singing her praises!

    Picking a photographer was one of the scariest things for me when it came to wedding planning. Pictures were one of the most important components and I wanted them to be good! I previously met Carrie Joy when she was the photographer for a friend of mines wedding (I was a bridesmaid.) At this wedding Carrie Joy was so great and listened to everyone. When it came time for me to pick a photographer I remembered what a great experience my friend had with Carrie Joy so I reached out to her first for our photographer. Amazingly she was available! She really worked with me ahead of time to make sure she knew exactly what kinds of pictures I wanted, who I wanted in them, and where I wanted them taken (church vs reception venue). When it came to the wedding day I knew I had one less thing to worry about with her in charge. I knew she knew what I wanted and that she would take care of the rest. Carrie Joy worked with my planner to make sure we were all on the same page when it came to making sure there was enough time planned for the pictures throughout the day. She stayed calm, collected and patient the whole day and really made sure that my now husband and I were taken care of and happy. I didn't have to do any rounding up of family members because she already had a detailed list! Our pictures turned out amazing, just as I suspected. Carrie Joy takes what look to me like beautiful, elegant, simple, and natural pictures- which is exactly what I wanted (probably not correct photography lingo just my wording .) She caught so many great pictures of the cocktail hour and reception and now looking back I am able to see everything I didn't have a chance to see on our big day. Great person and photographer!! Highly recommend!

    Carrie Joy is an amazing photographer and a true artist. She recently shot my engagement and wedding day photos and we were completely speechless with the quality, her professionalism and the way she made it look so effortless and natural. The photos are completely beautiful! Her eye for detail is like no other, she is truly special and puts incredible time into each picture she works on. You will have a blast with her as she is very down to earth, and she will make your special day even more amazing! Perfect photographer. Thank you, Carrie Joy :)

    Rather than writing a "canned" review, I'm going to copy and paste what I sent to my friend when I recommended Carrie Joy to her. Because she's THAT incredible that I am literally recommending her to my best friends! Here it is: I used Carrie Joy Photography for my wedding and absolutely LOVED her. She shoots both film & digital, and we loved the vintage feel that we got in the film that you can't get from digital photos! We primarily picked her because of her documentary style - she snaps candids so incredibly well and just captured the energy and feeling of our day in all the photos! And we got SO many photos back that going through them is like reliving every single moment! So much so that I made a whole video of our wedding day from photos, and I was actually glad we didn't have a videographer because she captured it so comprehensively in photos! She is also just the sweetest person on the planet and so agreeable to help make our wedding day exactly we wanted. When we first chose her to shoot our wedding, I remember saying, "If someone's going to follow us around all day, it HAS to be her!" I was actually so excited to spend the day with her. She's also Type A like me, and has wedding planning down to a science so that everything flows PERFECTLY on your big day. Carrie Joy is so incredibly genuine, and you can tell that all she wants is for your to be 100% happy with your wedding day and your photos.... and she absolutely knocked it out of the park for us. I could go on and on clearly... but she is just amazing. We are so, so thrilled with our wedding photos and are so grateful to treasure them for the rest of our lives.

    Carrie Joy is a wonderful person and did an outstanding job start to finish! She is such a sweet person, aims to please and truly wants to understand the expectations, makes not of ALL the special moments so they get recorded, is receptive to ideas and takes both amazing difital and film photos! She truly captired the feeling for our daughter's wedding and looking at the photos is reliving the most wonderful day! Our son's wedding photog (a highly rated Atl photog) missed all the important family shots on our side, and took such strange candids of people eating and dancing that they were unusable. And they neglected to take photos of extended family members -- in the church or at the reception. I felt horrible showing family the photos bcs they were not in them! How refreshing to have Carrie joy--she laid such great attention to who needed to be photogrpahed and she took stunning candids--completely captured the day!!! We think the world of her and our coordinator ow recommends her to new clients after watching her work on our day!! She's wonderful!!

    Carrie Joy is absolutely amazing. First of all, her work is stunning and truly speaks for itself. She shoots using digital and film, which is a lost art. With her fine arts background, she has a great eye for composition, lines, and lighting. Her return time for your images is very speedy and always at the highest quality. She is always quick to respond to an email or text message and never makes you feel like you are imposing when you ask "silly" questions.

    Furthermore, she is awesome to work with. Her bubbly and kind personality makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. She gives great direction when posing you and it shows in the consistent quality of her images. One month before your wedding, she even goes on a site visit with you to explore your venue! Carrie Joy takes the time to put together an extensive shot-list of your wedding party and family, as well as, a wedding day timeline. The wedding day timeline was incredibly helpful and included every detail.
    I cannot say enough positive things about Carrie Joy!
    Happy wedding planning and good luck!

    My fiancé (yay!) contacted Carrie Joy to have her photograph our proposal. I could not be more thankful she was there! After discreetly shooting the actual proposal, she stayed with us as we went to meet our families. The candid pictures are our very favorite ones! Her pictures perfectly capture all the emotions of the afternoon. We love how light and bright and happy the pictures came out! We actually can’t stop looking at them. Thank you, Carrie Joy! You were absolutely wonderful to work with!

    Carrie Joy Photography was one of the best decisions that my husband and I made during our wedding planning process! The genuine kindness and care Carrie Joy has for her clients is evident from the first moment you contact her. She makes you feel like you are her only client throughout the entire process. She is generous and accommodating. She listens to your desires and takes complete care of you from beginning to end. Carrie Joy helped me almost entirely with my wedding timeline (which can be stressful at times). She did so with such confidence and seasoned experience. Because of her we were able to get every photo we wanted efficiently on wedding day. Carrie Joy is intentional- always timely, responsive, prompt, and lavishing you with surprises! Carrie Joy and her team are truly amazing- they go way above and beyond the basics of wedding photography. She also got our photos back in record timing- major bonus! Both my husband and I adore Carrie Joy and our photos!

    Carrie Joy did a fantastic job with my wedding! She took time during our initial consultation to really get to know me and my husband, our vision for the wedding, and what we wanted out of our pictures. She created a detailed timeline for the day and gladly changed it around when I had specific requests (e.g., doing the first look at a different location, taking some bride/groom pics at a park near our venue). She was very easy to work with and communicate with. The day of our wedding, it was very windy outside where we had planned to do a lot of pictures, but she was flexible and had built enough extra time into our schedule that we were able to move some of the pictures inside and still capture all the shots we wanted. We were thrilled with the way our pictures turned out! We've had such a hard time picking our favorites for prints and enlargements! From individual shots, couples shots, family shots, and large group shots, Carrie Joy directed everyone well, kept us on schedule, and took amazing photos. She truly captured the joy and excitement we felt that day, and she caught a lot of small, less-planned moments on camera that were incredibly meaningful to us, as well. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Carrie Joy was hands down the best money we spent on our entire wedding!!! She is an absolute joy to be around and her work is phenomenal! We had a phone call just to get to know each other before any commitments were made and immediately after hanging up with her I called my mom to say I had found the perfect photographer!. She took so much of her time to get to know me and my now husband. She wasn't just my photographer--She was my photographer, wedding coordinator, and friend. My wedding venue provided a wedding coordinator, but when she dropped the ball (a few times) Carrie Joy was there with a solution almost immediately! She is very organized and professional. But, also super fun and so sweet! I have received compliments from all of my family/wedding party on not only how beautiful our photos turned out, but also on how great Carrie Joy is as a person. Our wedding pictures were the number one thing on my list of what was important to me. Because once the cake has been eaten and the DJ has gone home, all you have are your pictures to remember your wedding day. And, I am so thankful that I chose Carrie Joy to capture all of the special moments for us. Seriously, she is the best and I cannot recommend her enough!

    Choosing Carrie Joy as our photographer was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. From day one, she was so sweet and helpful. She is so caring and gives each couple the detailed attention they want and deserve. During the entire wedding planning process, we felt like Carrie Joy was just an email or phone call away if we had any questions. She is extremely professional and her work is beautiful and well worth every penny. We are so pleased with our engagement & wedding photos taken by Carrie Joy and would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

    My fiance booked Carrie Joy to capture our actual proposal. I obviously wasn't involved on the front end of things, but he only had kind things to say about how accommodating and responsive Carrie Joy was to his plans. We got engaged in Piedmont Park, which is in the heart of Atlanta. Carrie Joy arrived before we did to scope out the scene and hide from us. She was then able to capture every moment leading up to the proposal, the actual proposal and then celebratory shots afterwards. She even followed us to my sister's house in Atlanta where all of our friends and family were to take pictures of that celebration. The pictures she took were able to show the joy we felt the entire day, and we cherish every single one of them. You cannot go wrong with Carrie Joy!

    A wedding photographer is essentially an extension of your wedding party and we were more than pleased to welcome Carrie Joy into ours. We believe that a photographer actually has two jobs on a wedding day. One is the obvious and that is to take some really amazing photos. The other, while not so obvious, is to be a calming and strong presence when the rest of your world seems to be going nuts. Carrie Joy exceeded our expectations in both of these jobs. You can see her photos on her website, so we won't belabor the point that she is an excellent photographer. However, the intangibles - i.e., initial meetings, planning sessions, walk-throughs, family coordinating, personality, fun - are what you can't see and something that Carrie Joy is a true pro at. We would recommend Carrie Joy for anyone looking for a wedding photographer who will deliver great value, outstanding service and be someone you genuinely want to have around on your wedding day.

It was such a privilege to capture your incredible day! Thank you so much for your kind words! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
