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!Sent on 06/30/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Sam! I loved being a part of such a special day for you guys! And, the candid photos of you two with your families are some of my favorites as well! You guys are so precious! Thank you again for the privilege of being a part of such a special moment! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy

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!Sent on 05/16/2017
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Natalie - you are such a joy! Thank you so much for the privilege of being a part of your big day! I just adore you & Ryan, and I feel as though I've gained two new friends in the process! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Ashton · Married on 12/29/2016
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!Sent on 02/15/2017
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Hi Ashton - Thank you so much! I just loved capturing your beautiful wedding. You & David are such an inspiring couple. I adored capturing the way you interacted with each other & the joy of your wedding day! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Ansleigh · Married on 10/22/2016
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!Sent on 11/22/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Ansleigh - Thank you so much! It was such a joy not only getting to know you but capturing your wedding! You and Wes are so sweet together - your love is beautiful, and I've adored capturing your story! Thank you so much for the privilege of being a part of your lives! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Emily · Married on 10/15/2016
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!Sent on 11/20/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Emily - I have simply adored working with you & Josh! You two have such an amazing connection! It was an absolute honor & joy to capture your relationship and wedding! Y'all are so much fun - which made capturing you guys with your family and friends such a blast! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Taylor · Married on 10/08/2016
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!Sent on 06/20/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Taylor! Your proposal was so beautiful & fun, and I loved seeing and capturing all the emotions on such a life changing day for you guys! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Kyle · Married on 10/08/2016
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.Sent on 10/28/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Kyle & Sydney - Photographing your wedding was such a JOY! Thank you for the honor of being a part of your day! I treasure the time I've spent with both of you, and I truly felt welcomed into your day as an extension of your amazing wedding party! Thank you! It was such a privilege to capture your incredible day! Thank you so much for your kind words! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Jana · Married on 09/03/2016
Carrie joy was absolutely wonderful! There is nothing bad I can say about my experience. Not only did she make us super comfortable, she was so organized I didn't have to worry about a thing. She was in constant communication with me throughout the whole process. Carrie did my engagement pictures and my wedding photography. We met up and had coffee one day because silly me forgot to sign the back of my check, and not only did she pay for my coffee but she was so understanding when I was the one who caused the issue. She is such a wonderful person inside and out and I truly enjoyed working with her. It was like talking with someone you've known your whole life. She really has a passion for what she does and it shows in her work. I am so happy with all of my pictures and so happy I found her! I will definitely use her in the future if I need anymore photography done.Sent on 10/11/2016

Michelle · Married on 07/03/2016
Carrie Joy was an absolute dream to work with! Living in California, and having your wedding in Georgia, is no easy feat, but Carrie Joy was there every step of the way, participating in numerous phone calls, meeting whenever I was in town, keeping me updated thoroughly on our timeline, and being sure she knew every last picture that we wanted! The day of was phenomenal, her sweet and bubbly personality made everyone giggle, and made every picture fill up with joy! She was just the right amount of meticulous to where you knew every shot would line up perfectly, and then she mixed in the perfect amount of candid photos to really capture the emotion of pure love and happiness on the big day. I'm so happy with the result of our photos! She manages to make every photo glow with life; so crisp and bright, and I am so elated that I chose and met Carrie Joy for our photographer. Do not doubt your decision in her, because you will not be disappointed by her infectious smile and personality! Thank you so much Carrie Joy for making our day so special, and capturing its pure essence!!Sent on 07/22/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Hi Michelle - Thank you so much! This just made my day! You were an absolute joy to photograph. I'm so glad I've had a chance to get to know you & Jackson and capture your amazing wedding! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy

Carrie Joy Photography was recommended by a good friend who had used Carrie Joy for her engagement photos and wedding. Prior to booking, we had a call with Carrie Joy for a consultation to discuss our vision, pricing and her experience in wedding photography. Even during that first call, Carrie Joy had such a warm, inviting personality and was also very thorough and organized - everything we were looking for in our wedding photographer! Needless to say, it didn't take long for us to finalize our decision to hire Carrie Joy!Sent on 06/18/2016
Throughout the wedding planning process, she was absolutely amazing! Her organization was outstanding. For our engagement photos she gave us so much advice on ideal locations, times of day, colors to wear, etc. As it got closer to our wedding date, she was such a great resource for exit ideas, suggestions on how to position our chairs at the sweetheart table for the best pictures, etc. Two weeks before the wedding, we did a walkthrough with Carrie Joy at both the church and our reception venue, which was so beneficial!
On the wedding day, Carrie Joy continued to be incredible. She arrived early with her assistant, Kristina Lawson, and they were both ready to go! They quickly got through the detail photos and our bridal getting ready photos and we were off to the church. Carrie Joy and Kristina arrived before the bridal party and were able to squeeze in some groom getting ready photos (which was something we originally did not think we would have time for). Throughout the entire day, Carrie Joy and Kristina were so sweet and our wedding guests complimented they were wonderful!
Overall, we were so happy Carrie Joy was a part of our wedding day and would highly recommend her to anyone! Throughout our wedding process, Carrie Joy was more than our photographer, she truly became a good friend!
Thanks again Carrie Joy! You were an important part of our special day and did an amazing job!
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Thank you so much! It was such an honor being a part of your wedding day! Thank you for being such a joy to work with; I thoroughly enjoyed capturing your gorgeous day and love that I gained two more sweet friends in the process! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy
Kayla · Married on 04/24/2016
Carrie Joy was so great to work with for our engagement and wedding photos! We had to do some rescheduling for our engagement photos due to weather and Carrie Joy was super flexible and accommodating; our photos turned out great! She made sure to keep in contact via email leading up to our wedding and we even met up one night a couple weeks before the wedding just to make sure we had all the details right for our big day. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for our wedding and Carrie Joy and her second photographer Christina captured the essence of the entire day perfectly! Thanks so much for everything!Sent on 09/08/2016
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Kayla! Your wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and I loved being able to capture you & Tom together!

Carrie Joy is an artist. The way she sees light and beauty makes her photographs rich, but with a softness that it is almost impossible to look away from. For example, my wedding was soft, natural, and elegant. It took place in a vineyard with the mountains so close you could touch them. The lighting was perfect, but it was a blustery day. At first, I was nervous that the pictures would be ruined. My veil hardly stayed on during the ceremony. Carrie Joy turned the wind into her tool. The photographs during the ceremony have dramatic fabrics blowing in the wind from the bridesmaids' dresses and my dress/veil, but she did not allow that to take away from the emotion on faces, and it greatly enhanced the images. She maneuvered in such a way to always bring the focus back to my now-husband and myself, the love shared between us, and the joy from everyone involved. She captured moments that I dreamed of seeing my whole life. She attended to each photograph like it was the most important picture she would ever take, but she made everyone feel so relaxed. Not one photo looks unnatural- and she got them back to us within three weeks. Because weddings happen in such a flurry, it was impossible to see everything that was going on, or if people were really having a good time. The candid pictures taken showed guests smiling, how beautiful the appetizer table was, the flower arrangements, etc. I got to enjoy that day all over again with a new depth. The way she handled the most important day of my life (thus far) gives me confidence that I could trust her with anything; I cannot recommend her photography enough. Above and beyond her photography, Carrie Joy is a good soul. She got to know my husband and I enough to understand what we wanted during our wedding, and she organized it to the minute so that she could make it happen. Through all of the stress of wedding planning, Carrie Joy was a bright spot, and I am grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her.Sent on 05/04/2016

Julia · Married on 03/12/2016
I hired Carrie Joy for my daughter's wedding and I couldn't have imagined working with anyone else. Carrie Joy is a pleasure to work with and really got to know my daughter and her future husband. She takes a lot of time in learning how the couple wishes to have their big day captured and then delivers the perfect pictures! Her professionalism and enthusiasm are contagious. She captured some precious moments of everyone that attended my daughter's wedding/reception and delivered my pictures to me before her deadline! You will not be disappointed - Carrie Joy's creativity, professionalism and enthusiasm make her the perfect photographer for any wedding!Sent on 04/07/2016

Carrie Joy was an AWESOME photographer - everything we wanted and more. She and her second shooter, Christina, took phenomenal pictures (and lots of them!) and she had the edits back to me in under a month! I had friends who got married two months before me who got their pictures back the same week I did. And she certainly didn't skimp on the edits. They're gorgeous! She captures lighting, details, emotion, and celebration so well.Sent on 03/08/2016
We wanted great photos, but we also wanted someone who we enjoyed spending time with on our wedding day. Again, Carrie Joy exceeded our expectations. We knew it as early as our engagement session. She quickly picked up on our personalities, our styles, and the amount of guidance we needed when posing for pictures. On our wedding day, ALL of my bridesmaids and so many friends and family members commented on how lucky we were to have found Carrie Joy. Everyone adored her, so they were excited to work with her and listen to her instructions (and smile)!
Throughout the wedding planning process, she was just as awesome. She visited our church and venue with me a month before the wedding so she knew exactly what areas I loved and wanted photographed so we didn't have to make those decisions day-of. Our church was somewhat strict with where she could stand, but she worked creatively to get beautiful ceremony shots while respecting their rules. She was helpful in brainstorming creative ideas for our day-of schedule, our reception exit, and so many other things.
She was at a conference for a couple of days during the week before our wedding, and she called me to let me know that I could ignore her out-of-office email message since it was wedding week, and to know that she'd be checking her email for messages from me.
She is truly a joy to work with - I can't say enough wonderful things about Carrie Joy. We're truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her on our wedding day. I'd recommend her to ANYONE.
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Thank you so much! Wow - you have made my day! It was such an honor to not only capture such an amazing day, but to be a part of it all! I truly felt like I was photographing the wedding of dear friends! I feel very lucky to have been the photographer to such an amazing couple! Hugs!!! Much love & appreciation - Carrie Joy

Carrie Joy is definitely my favorite vendor from my whole wedding! She is super super organized, listens to everything you ask for, and knows how to work a wedding efficiently and gracefully. Before the wedding, we had a few meetings where we went through the entire timeline of the day and the shot lists for portraits. It took so much weight off my shoulders to have her do this for the wedding. After the wedding, everyone told me how great she was at her job and how nice she was to deal with. For portraits, she knew exactly how to line everyone up and put people in their spots in a super nice way. She also showed such patience when dealing with our 2 large families! It's no easy feat!Sent on 11/20/2015
Overall, Carrie Joy is an amazing photographer and an even better person. Not only does she deliver on everything you would expect from a photographer, but she goes above and beyond by providing excellent service along the way.

Caryn · Married on 10/03/2015
Carrie Joy was probably our favorite vendor that we hired for our wedding. From the beginning, she was extremely thorough and responsive to any and all questions, emails, etc. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her passion for photography is so evident in her work and how she interacts with her clients. On our wedding day, we were running WAY behind schedule and it was unclear whether the weather would cooperate for outdoor pictures. Carrie Joy rolled with it all, stepped in A LOT of mud, and ensured we got AMAZING pictures despite this all. She made my husband and I so comfortable during both our engagement pictures and the day of the wedding and struck an amazing balance between being relaxed while also getting the pictures you want. She's truly a talented photographer and is extremely reasonable for the quality of work she provides. If I had to do it all over again, I would hire her without a doubt. My only hope is she starts doing family photos too so that we can work with her again in the future :)Sent on 10/25/2015
Carrie Joy Photography's reply:Caryn - Thank you so much! I really loved working with you & Nestor! Your love for each other is beautiful & your day was completely magical. Thank you both so much for trusting me with your wedding photography! I feel so blessed to have been a part of your day! :-)

Carrie Joy was nothing short of outstanding! Her pictures were amazing, and she is gracious, enthusiastic, professional, punctual, flexible, and genuine. She really goes above and beyond not only to take great pictures, but also make you feel like you're the only bride she's working with. She responds to every email and text, and she even met me and my mother several times to talk through details and scope out pretty spots for photos. I knew I wanted to work with her from our first phone conversation because she was so sweet, southern, and fun! I also loved her style of pictures. I felt that she captured the traditional pictures that every bride wants, but also the fun, sweet, and spontaneous moments as well. She made both my husband and me feel comfortable and at ease during our engagement session and wedding pictures. I also added bridal portraits to her reasonably priced package, which were beautiful. Her basic package also included a second photographer, who was just as wonderful and professional. She is always prepared, always on time, and always very transparent. I cannot say enough good things about Carrie Joy!Sent on 07/13/2015

Carrie Joy was our absolute favorite vendor we hired for the wedding. I didn't have any doubts as to whether we would be taken care of.

Carrie Joy was an incredible wedding photographer! She did both our engagement and wedding photos. She did a wonderful job, and was always professional and fun to be around. She is very detail oriented and works to put together a timeline of your day so you make sure everything runs on time and you get all the photos you want. She is very energetic and so much fun and positive energy to be around on your wedding day! She went above and beyond for us for our wedding day- she had never taken pictures at our venue before so came out the week before to see the different places to take pictures so that everything would go seamlessly on our wedding day. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures because I know they will be amazing! I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with her for our wedding.Sent on 05/05/2015

Crystal · Married on 04/25/2015
We are absolutely thrilled with Carrie Joy Photography!! Carrie Joy did an AMAZING job photographing our engagement session and our wedding; the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. Carrie Joy has the ability to make you feel instantly comfortable and relaxed while capturing all those special moments between two people. Carrie Joy isn't an ordinary "wedding photographer" that takes good photos, and uses crafty photo filters; she tells your unique story through each photo she takes. The only problem we had through this whole process was trying to choose the photos we wanted printed to hang on our walls. All of our photos turned out beautiful, and timeless.Sent on 07/24/2015
I can confidently say Carrie Joy was born with the talent of being a photographer, and we are so blessed that she was the one who captured the most memorable day of our lives.
