We’re dedicated to a superior experience for both couples and vendors. Our goal is to portray an elegant image, confident persona and serene, but sophisticated, style. We love finding simple luxuries and fleeting emotions throughout a wedding day. This is the day you have been planning for and dreaming of. Your favorite people in the world are gathering, the dance floor is waiting, the champagne is chilled. Every little detail has been attended to and now it’s time to walk down the aisle and join hands and hearts with your one true love. You will remember these moments for the rest of your life; the family, the friends, the cake, the music, the tears and the laughter. You deserve to have this beautiful experience thoughtfully documented as you share the story of your wedding with family and friends in the decades to come.

Good Vibes:
“Not only is her work stunning, she gives off the best vibes. When you meet people with a good heart who are loving life, everything around them is that much better! Why would you not want someone like that shooting your special day when you are surrounded by everyone you love?”
- Becky & Brian"One of my favorite things about Vanessa is how calm she is. Wedding days can be overwhelming but she was completely relaxed and kept her cool while also sticking to the timeline perfectly — we couldn’t believe it!”
- Jill & Kris
Good bye awkward:
“Coming from someone who is usually on the shyer side especially in front of a camera, Vanessa made me feel extremely comfortable. Once she started shooting, I never gave it a second thought as all the poses felt so natural and like me.”
- Brie & MJ “She really made the day enjoyable and had our whole bridal party laughing during group photos.”
- Michelle & Harry “Besides my husband, Vanessa was the best choice I made when it came to our big day!”
- Lauren & Sean
“Vanessa and her team make their way around capturing every single part of your day, all while remaining inconspicuous. We even had guests asking if we had a photographer! She’s that good. She is professional and skilled, but even better she is kind and always lovely to be around.”
- Monica & Jordan “She made our wedding so comfortable and stress free. Both my husband and I have been in weddings where the photographers have been noticeable throughout the entire day. Vanessa and her team work like they are not even there.”
- Christina & Dan
Quality and Speed:
“Her products are amazing, her delivery is unbelievably fast, and her demeanor and attitude is both professional and enthusiastic.”

- Jennifer & MackenzieFun and Genuine:
“I was a little bit anxious, but she seamlessly directed the shoot so that my husband and I were completely at ease and actually having fun in front of the camera! Our photos came out better than we’d ever imagined. She totally nailed it! My husband and I had so much fun on our wedding day, and Vanessa and her team were able to capture the energy and emotions of it all. [The pictures] are a stunning reflection of everything we wanted our wedding to be and who we are as a couple.”
- Danielle & Michael
Best Choice:
“The day of the wedding, almost nothing goes perfectly. When the cake was cut, and no one was around to serve it! Vanessa came to the rescue, grabbed the plate and scooped a piece on so we could share the moment. She is very professional, kind, and willing to work around any schedules or props you provide to her. She is one of the most creative photographers we have ever seen. Vanessa and her team didn’t skip a beat or miss a single detail. If their is one thing I could pass on to future brides, it would be to hire Vanessa. She was, without question, the very best investment we made in our day.”
- Jaclyn & Adam
“She is a true professional with such talent and eye for detail; her pictures are vibrant and dynamic. Vanessa is also an approachable, friendly person in general, and that made being in front of the camera so much more comfortable! She is very responsive to emails and phone calls and will answer any and ALL questions.”
- Danielle & Collin
“Vanessa is AMAZING!!! Friends and family members haven’t stopped complimenting us on the photos and are super eager to get their own copies. But what makes her really fantastic is her way of working. She really puts you at ease during shoots. She really went above and beyond for us — from arriving early to showing me how pin a handkerchief to my bouquet to making a trip out to London (where we lived during our engagement) for our engagement shoot! It’s also worth noting that she is supported by a great team. They were all an absolute pleasure — super friendly and attentive.”
- Kelly & Chris

Because she really knows how to keep a bride calm, cool and collected. And her images are so romantic and timeless. We highly recommend working with Vanessa Joy!” — JENNY ORSINI, JENNY ORSINI EVENTS

Once I’ve done that, I can step aside and let them do what they do best. With Vanessa Joy as the photographer, the shoot gets something extra. It gets a phenomenal and uncommon mix of incredible talent and the highest level of skill. The whole team picks up on this and steps up their game. And then the icing on it all of Vanessa’s expertise is her own personal intuitive flair. In the end, the most sensational images are produced.” — STEVEN SENDOR, SOPHISTICATED WEDDINGS MAGAZINE

From start to finish with our wedding, literally an absolute, ‘Joy’ to work with! Almost every person at our wedding commented on the photography team and how great they were! With Vanessa and team you don’t have to worry about anything! Don’t hesitate on booking her, you won’t regret it!”
— Nora —
“My entire wedding experience with Vanessa and her team was an absolute pleasure! Not only was she able to capture the most beautiful pictures, she is incredibly easy and professional to work with. My photos so far are breathtaking and I can’t wait to see my final wedding album. The quality of my engagement album is pristine, with an amazing wood and leather cover. I can only imagine how much I will love what’s yet to come! Thank you Vanessa!”
— Rachel —
“Mike and I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are with the pictures! Literally, my jaw dropped to the ground. Let me start by saying I knew how amazing Vanessa was years ago! We got to work together on David Tutera for his television show which was such an amazing experience. Vanessa is just so sweet and really listens when you tell her your vision. She has an amazing eye for the small details. The pictures were also ready to view the same night of the wedding. Our guests thought that was so cool! We are so incredibly happy to know you, have worked with you, and have you a part of our special day! Thank you so much for capturing all the beautiful moments from our day. We simply love you!”
— Gina —
“Vanessa Joy and the team has been a dream to work with from the moment Vince and I had our first wedding call session. Vanessa and Jaye were very responsive to any and all creative inquires we had. Our wedding day was truly magical in the sense that, at times, we would forget they were there — they made us feel so comfortable. At the end of the night, we were surprised by Vanessa when she handed us a mini photo booklet which had Vanessa’s favorites from the day! What a Joy! Vanessa Joy Photography is best in class!”
— Adana and Vincent —
“From start to finish Vanessa was such a dream to work with. She answered any and all (and I mean all) questions, helped us work through nervous jitters and helped direct our families, bridesmaids and groomsmen on our wedding day in order to ensure my husband and I got every picture we wanted. We had asked her if she could share a little preview with us after the wedding and she beyond met expectations, going so far as to send us images on our actual wedding night! We cannot say enough positive things about Vanessa and highly recommend her.”
— Maddy —
“When my husband and I first spoke about what was important for us to invest in for our wedding day, photography was at the very top of our lists. It’s the one aspect of your wedding that you can take away and look back on for years to come. Hiring Vanessa was the best decision we made. It started at our engagement photos when we realized how special she was. She has a way of making you feel extremely comfortable in front of a camera. She also lets you be yourselves.”
— Monica —

“Over the past year of planning our wedding, Vanessa and Jaye were kind, attentive, organized and professional. They quickly answered any and all of our questions and we never once had any stress regarding our wedding photography! Their attention to detail and attention to us was remarkable! My husband and I cannot stop saying how blown away we are by our photos and that they are actually ours, and our family and friends were raving at how gorgeous the few photos we were able to see on our wedding day were!”
