Everyone once in a while, we run across a photographer who knows exactly how to capture that perfect light-filled moment that makes your eyes glaze over in a haze of love. Looking at the portfolio of Joyelan Photography gave me those exact feels.
She somehow captures all the loving gazes between couples just as well as she does their ring bear, special hot sauce packet, and lol-worthy bathtub in a dress shot. It takes skills and Joy has them in spades. Plus, she's so down to clown around, climb up mountains, and go adventuring wherever your wedding takes you.
Joy photographs couples in Tampa, FL, Atlanta, GA, and anywhere you're traveling for destination weddings. Plus, she's affordable and totally willing to craft up a custom package based on your own needs. Every wedding is different!
Oh, and definitely hit her up if you're eloping… she's a dynamo at elopements and will give you a great package.
Who is Joy and why does she love the offbeat so much?
Spoiler: Joy is offbeat, too! Let's hear a little about what makes Joy tick and how she relates to those who take the path less traveled when it comes to weddings…
My lifestyle has led me to work with many down-to-earth, unconventional, and spontaneous couples — the carefree couples who aren’t afraid of rainy portraits or tossing their shoes to run in the waves. The amazing mountaintop weddings, barefoot beach elopements, intimate DIY backyard ceremonies, or romantic rustic cabin celebrations. Bonus points for adding your pup or favorite hobby to your wedding plans!
I'm passionate about creating images that show love in a real way and aim for the fun and messy in-between moments. I get to know my couples personally because, by connecting with them, I create the most awesome and authentic images of their day. Celebrations of all kinds are welcome, big or small. I want to tell YOUR story and create a kick-ass experience.
Everyone loves Joy!
I couldn't believe how raving Joy's reviews were when I spied them. Actually, I can totally believe it. I've seen the proof!
Here a couple of great ones…
“Hands down, an amazing photographer. She’s an awesome person to work with, friendly and fun, yet professional. Just look at her portfolio — she’s not just a photographer, she’s an artist and that’s very hard to come by these days in the world. I highly recommend her! Joy is awesome.” – Dan D., Honeymoon island engagement
“Joy was our wedding photographer and I cannot recommend her enough. She’s talented and she has the ability to capture natural moments. We both felt confident and comfortable being ourselves and it resulted in beautiful images where our personalities shine through. Joy is worth every dollar and more! We’ll love these memories for the rest of our lives. Do yourself a favor and book her for your wedding, you won’t regret it.” – Maddy, Georgia wedding
Let's peek at a few of my favorite photos in her vast arsenal…
Are you in the Florida or Georgia area of the U.S. (or planning a destination wedding!) and are convinced that Joy is the one who will capture your wedding moments with all the care and love they deserve? I couldn't agree more. But she books up super fast, so make haste and see if your wedding date is free!
