Joyce did an amazing job with our engagement photos! We had Corinne and Wendy shoot the photos for our wedding. They are the sweetest photographers and were amazing to have on the day of. The value that they give you is beyond belief for your photos and memories. Thank you again!Sent on 09/19/2016

Brides to be- hiring Casual Candids is THE way to go on your wedding day! Think about it! Instead of having posed pictures with "just take the picture smiles" by one photographer instructing you to "turn your head this way, drop the chin" etc. you get 2 (yes 2) photographers who take multiple shots to ensure each moment is captured beautifully. They did just that and worked with me on specific ideas I wanted to capture. It was like having paparazzi follow us around. We have almost 2,000 photos and none are bad. They are dedicated to their craft!!! We met with Joyce and Christy for almost 2hrs discussing in detail what we wanted to accomplish. The wedding day arrived and they had ideas on how to shoot what we discussed. No surprises. No regrets. Corrine our other photog even laid down on the sidewalk to shoot some photos and a TV camera man passing by remarked "now that's dedication". I literally cried tears of joy when I saw the photos on line then 2 days later had a memory stick in hand with every single one of the 2,000 photos on it. We still have to choose which of the photos we want so they can color correct them etc. but as they are now in the raw state, they are spectacular. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!Sent on 07/07/2016
Casual Candids's reply:Sending kisses, Niki! Can't wait to design your book! Joyce, Christy and Corinne

Joyce (Casual Candids owner) is a joy to work with. On our wedding day, our families and wedding party commented on how positive her energy is, and how easy it was to work with her. She and her daughter Jessica (2nd photographer) captured so many beautiful shots. Afterwards, my dad commented that it was "unbelievable" how many great shots they got, and he hardly noticed they were there. The process of booking Joyce was very simple, and we had one quick phone call to arrange the day-of details. Very easy, and the final product was amazing!Sent on 06/09/2016
Casual Candids's reply:Valerie, Jessica and I absolutely loved photographing your gorgeous wedding! Thanks for appreciating us, it means so very much. Joyce

Amazing photographers!!!!!! We initially met with Joyce, the owner, and really felt she would ensure we'd get the experience we wanted. The venue itself is very picturesque and we were able to meet with Joyce and both photographers a few weeks before the big day. Joyce was very flexible and together we planned the first look and other areas of the property we could use. Joyce is very proactive is ensuring the everyone is on the same page with the day-of itinerary (knowing that things do come up) and very prompt in responding via email.
Corinne and Wendy were our day-of photographers and absolutely AMAZING. They were extremely professional, friendly and an absolutely awesome pair to work with. Like all art forms photography is open to interpretation so I'd encourage anyone looking for a wedding photographer to be respectful but very honest about what types of photos you like - close-ups, wide angle, more landscape, etc. Casual Candids was extremely accommodating about getting the shots we wanted such as shots at a nearby bridge and after-party shots of the cigar hour. I had found a bunch of photos from previous weddings at the venue and the photographers didn't seem to mind recreating although I'm sure they knew before I did that those wouldn't be the best ones :-). Either way they were more than happy to accommodate.
Best of all Joyce sent me two great photos within TWO days of the wedding and had mailed us a thumb drive with all the thousands of photos (all with minor photo editing done) just five days after the wedding. I was absolutely shocked about the quick turnaround.
Casual Candids's reply:Wow Katie, thank you for this stunning review! We all loved working with you and trying very hard to capture exactly what you wanted. Glad we came up to your exacting standards. We definitely aim to please! You now have beautiful images that tell the story of your fabulous day. Joyce
Steph · Married on 09/18/2015
Jessica and Joyce were wonderful! I am so glad we selected them as our wedding photographers. They are very personable and great to work with. At first I thought it would be awkward having photographers follow us around on our wedding day but it was not with them behind the camera. Jessica and Joyce put us at ease from the moment they arrived. We have beautiful photos and even more gorgeous album from our wedding day. We are very appreciative of the amazing memories they were able to capture. I would recommend them and Casual Candids to everyone.Sent on 06/16/2016

Michelle · Married on 08/15/2015
My husband and I were married at the Crossing Vineyards and Winery on one of the hottest days of the summer! Corinne and Wendy did a fabulous job capturing every single aspect of our special day. A few days before our wedding, Wendy, Corinne, and Joyce met us at the Winery to scope out the location. They searched the grounds high and low for the best spots, so on our wedding day, they knew exactly where the best photograph would be taken each time. On the big day, they felt like good friends to us. I felt like we really got to know them beforehand. They were flexible, and offered suggestions about what would work. They were never pushy and nothing felt forced. They flew under the radar, but were quick to remind us about specific shots that my husband and I requested. We wanted to get some shots of us in the vineyard at sunset. They captured the moment perfectly! We are now in the process of selecting photos for our Artbook, which is a part of one of their many packages that is offered. You can choose one or create your own. We can't wait to see what they do with our book! The day was perfect. There were many things that I was worried about as a bride, but my photographers were not one of those worries. My husband and I will always appreciate Corinne and Wendy (and Joyce)and the beautiful work that they did at our wedding!Sent on 09/21/2015
Casual Candids's reply:Many thanks Michelle!!

We loved Joyce and Corinne! They both knew what the names of the wedding party and family which made pictures go that much quicker! Despite the rain on our wedding day, they made sure to get great inside photos since we couldn't go outside. I would definitely recommend Casual Candids! Plus we had access to our pictures within days of our wedding!Sent on 11/26/2015

Joyce and Jessica did a phenomenal job photographing our June wedding in Peddler's Village. They captured every moment of the day perfectly, and together, they tell the story of our day. What's more, is they were fantastic to work with; Joyce showed up the day of our wedding knowing the names of everyone in the bridal party! We were worried about the rain that day, but they made sure we were able to get in plenty of the outdoor shots we wanted before the rain began. We couldn't be happier with our experience and our photos!Sent on 11/20/2015

COREEN · Married on 10/13/2014
We had an intimate wedding and need for only one photographer. From the moment we met Joyce we knew we found the one. From the artistic representation of the work in the Artbooks to the feeling of comfort and ease we had in her presence. The moment she arrived at the venue she was on the move until it ended 4 hours later. A professional at work with a love for her job. We highly recommend.Sent on 10/19/2014

Any questions I had were answered immediately and professionally. They are beyond talented, and really know how to capture a moment! The pictures came out absolutely stunning! They were never in the way, yet managed to get incredible shots and captured the entire night beautifully. They are very kind, patient and accommodating and I couldn’t have asked for more!

We were so impressed with Casual Candids. Of the photographers we interviewed, they were extremely professional and listened to us about our wedding and what we wanted. Joyce was always extremely quick to respond, and I never had any concerns about reaching her. We loved all our photos, our engagement and the wedding. We had so many compliments from our guests about how lovely the pictures were. They were pleasant to have at the wedding and didn't feel intrusive if they asked for a photo. I would be happy to provide more information and sing their praises to anyone considering their services!Sent on 11/25/2015

When planning our wedding, I knew that I wasn't willing to compromise on our photographer; my wedding pictures would be my lasting memory and what I would treasure for years to come. From the moment my fiance and I sat down with Joyce, we knew we had found 'the one.' We were so impressed with her work and excitement for our special day. She made the process completely stress-free and I never once worried about this aspect of my wedding. I knew we were in good hands.Sent on 11/08/2011
On our wedding day, Joyce and Odalis were so professional and creative. They captured all of our special moments, and even stayed longer at our reception to capture our 'sparkler' exit.
I highly recommend CasualCandids.

Corey · Married on 09/25/2010
Joyce and Jessica were incredible to work with. They were fun and professional yet at times you didn't even know they were there. Just about every moment was captured, in the over 2500 pictures, that were emailed to us before we returned from our honeymoon. Our wedding album is truly unique. If you want to be in the best hands, I would only go with Casual Candids.Sent on 11/07/2011
Julie · Married on 07/14/2007
You have found your Photographer! There are not enough words to describe how truly incredible Casual Candids has been! My husband I were married a number of years ago, and were thrilled with our photographers (Wendy and Yvette), who were amazing! Jessica was fantastic, and photographed our engagement session, and we began working with Joyce from the very beginning to choose our wedding photo package. Nearly ten years later, Joyce is still so generously working with me to choose our wedding photos! Joyce and her team are truly dedicated professionals who 'go the extra mile' every step of the way to provide the very best! Joyce and her talented team are willing to work with you regarding your preferences and vision for your photographs that on your special day, as well as during the process afterwards in selecting your photos to treasure forever! Joyce is truly a visionary, and is the most talented, creative photographer and designer you will ever meet! In choosing your album, you are able to select from one fantastic option after another, every option is breath-taking! Joyce and her team are incredible, and as we have finally decided which images to choose (each photo was so beautiful, it is hard to decide)! Joyce's talent and dedication extend far beyond your wedding day! She carefully designed and created such beautiful montages of my husband that even ten years later, we are ordering photos, and framed portraits as well as the gorgeous gallery wraps that are truly exceptional! In addition to that, Joyce has so generously spent time with me to create special keepsake photos of various other family members, and has worked with me to select the perfect framing options as well! Joyce and her team are one-of-a-kind! To find such incredible artists who are so dedicated to their work, and were willing to honor the contract from so many years ago, is truly exceptional! Your search is over, you have truly found the Best!Sent on 09/17/2016

Joyce did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. She was exceptional in coming up with creative and memorable photos for both and her photojournallistic style was WONDERFUL in providing us with photos that are beautiful, creative, and memorable. I had an impossible time narrowing down the more than 3500 photos from our wedding day into photos to be included in our album. She provided us with DVDs of all the images she took so that I own all the images without added cost.Sent on 09/27/2010
