Joel was a great photographer to work with because he truly is a professional. He's organized and thorough with the planning, and had every detail ironed out in advance so I didn't need to worry about a thing the day of. I hired him because I loved the quality of his work. When I compared different photographers, I could tell he knew what he's doing because the lighting, the backgrounds, and posing all looked so natural and beautiful. You can truly tell the difference compared to someone just doing photography as a hobby. Joel makes the whole process feel like an experience from the initial meeting to the special album viewing party at the end. I can't tell you how many compliments we received on both our engagement and wedding photos. This was the one area we wanted to invest in a little more to get someone experienced because we knew after the big day, the photos were the one thing we'd have on display and it was definitely worth it!
