I serve all my clients by showing that I care for their experience and always put them first. After all, it's your day— I'm just a part of it. Since I have so much experience from photographing other weddings, I immediately become a resource for you and help you execute your dream wedding the way you're envisioning it. 

Meet Joy, the goofy girl behind the camera

I’ve been living and working as a wedding photographer in Houston for the last 5 years, though my heart belongs to sunny San Diego. There’s nothing quite like the smell of beach sand, the sound of crashing waves or the sight of breathtaking mountains. Taking an occasional flight to visit home and spend time with family is a must for me.

When I’m not photographing weddings I’m probably chasing after my two boys with water guns or taking my daughter to Barnes & Noble to buy a new book series. I have two cats and quite a few Monstera varieties that soak up the sun and my quiet time each morning. I’m pretty obsessed with romance novels, European architecture, chocolate and florals.

I take a more relaxed approach to capturing your wedding photographs. I believe that genuine emotions don’t look or feel the same if they’re not captured in the moment. I want you to feel comfortable in front of the camera so that you not only feel your photos but actually see yourself in them.

I’m very intentional with how I organize the photo timeline for your day. You’ll get room to relax in between capturing some truly unforgettable images of the two of you. You don't have to stress, you can have a wedding album that you're proud of and still enjoy important moments with your guests. Let me handle the photography so that you can be present and enjoy your once in a lifetime celebration.
