Joy Michelle Photography

On an average day you could find me curled up in my office chair while sipping coffee (and it probably isn’t the first cup) with my planner open and my dog close by. I’m a wife to the cutest guy ever, Felipe, my sometimes-photo-assistant and full time CFO. I believe in living creatively, sending snail mail, and that photographs are meant to be printed.


I’m truly passionate about my work and nothing is more meaningful to me than the ability to tell unique love stories through artistic imagery. Radiant natural light and expressions of joy are what inspire me most. I believe wedding photographs are truly a couple’s first heirlooms. My priority at each wedding is to capture the day in a creative way so that it can be relived and experienced over and over again.

"Working with Joy Michelle was the best experience from start to finish! She was sweet and professional, and it felt like I was working with a girlfriend. I wasn't a local bride, but she easily worked with me over the phone and through email. She has an unbelievable eye & the most romantic and classic style, and she was totally up for it when people in the wedding party had spur-of-the-moment silly photo ideas. Her team worked tirelessly all day and they gave us so many gorgeous, magical, magazine-worthy photos of our special day. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!" - Madeline and Joe 


"Joy Michelle is absolutely amazing! I highly encourage you to stop your photographer search and just go ahead and book her! You will not regret it! Joy photographed both our engagement shoot and wedding day – totaling over 1,000 in pictures and there seriously isn’t one shot I wouldn’t frame. They are all stunning! Not only is Joy’s work amazing, she is also so sweet and easy to work with and makes you feel totally comfortable posing/ fake smiling/ fake giggling for the perfect shot! She is also very organized and pays close attention to detail to ensure everything run smoothly on your wedding day (which is much appreciated when you have different vendors with competing timelines). I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer – Joy certainly exceeds expectations and delivers!! Thanks so much, Joy & team!!!" - Mary Alex and Andrew
