Playful photography for real humans. 

Joy Shots Photography is a Virginia wedding photographer specializing in vivid, true to color photography for all of life’s special moments. I travel throughout Virginia and the United States to photograph weddings and elopements for couples who love fun!

Our Philosophy

No matter how big or small, whoever you love, wherever you’re getting married- your wedding is unique and it’s not meant to be an elaborate photoshoot. Joy Shots is here to capture every moment of your story in ways that enhance your enjoyment of the day, not interrupt. 

I’m dedicated to capturing timeless true-to-color portraits to last through the generations, and authentic candid moments that show of your unique personalities. 


So if you’re looking for an experienced photographer who believes in having fun together and knowing everyone’s name, you’ve come to the right place.

Erika was incredible and made our wedding day 100% better. The quality of work was excellent and she was so kind and helpful! She also did our engagement photos with the package we bought from her and they were great! 100% recommend having Joy Shots do your pictures!
I love Erika's work and her so much! Her personality and professionalism combined are the best! All my friends and family felt like she was their best friend on my wedding day. Beautiful shooting style and really fast turnaround time for previews and pics! We booked Erika for our wedding and engagement shoot and all the pictures are SO wonderful! ❤️
