Arizona Wedding Photographer


the person behind the camera - a Maine girl enjoying Arizona sunshine! My loves - my faith, my family, and spending time in God's gorgeous creation! My vices - iced coffee and good quality chocolate - no cheap stuff - I admit to snobbery on this point! My past - ex Etsy shop owner and ex taxi manager - odd but true! My sense of humor explained - Hitchers Guide fan for life. My approach to stressful situations - pray a little, take a deep breath, and look for the humor in the situation. My happy place in the photography world -golden light and huge laughs. My future - getting to know you!

the gear

Nikon - just because. Love prime lens for the clarity and zooms for on the spot action. I find beauty in natural light but am not afraid to whip out the flash to capture what's memorable and important.

joanna joy's focus

I focus on relationships - how you interact with each other and what's happening. I'll notice what you invested time in, your flowers, your details. and I will stop and set up a lovely pose just for you, for your wall, for that frame on your nightstand.

professional experience

50+ weddings - from the expertly planned to the adventurous DIY. I've helped pin bustles, carried flowers, halted tears, whispered reassurance, celebrated and laughed with people who where strangers only that morning but are now friends.

my home decor mission

I REALLY think printing your photos is important. To have those moments on your table or on the wall to relive with each glance. That's a wonderful thing.

my loves

These people. This crew. Read more about them on the blog. The story of my life!

random points of interest

As a land surveyor's daughter, it's only natural that I love to hike. Love to be outdoors. I am however, never prepared for the actual outdoors. Guaranteed to end up sun burnt and cold but will enjoy it all anyway.

favorite places to be

By the lake, by the ocean, at the creek - you see where this is going?
