Full Day Packages

Your wedding is not a photoshoot.

Joy Shots takes photos that keep you deeply immersed in your wedding day, enhancing, not interrupting, the unfolding story.

Candid moments of you and your loved ones are a top priority and when things can’t be candid I’ll make sure you’re having fun and feeling comfortable. 

I know that your wedding is filled with once in a lifetime moments and I’ll be right by your side to capture everything as it happens.

Being Easy Going

My team does all we can to be stress free and take away your stress wherever possible. We're down to earth, and at least 5% silly goose.

Having Fun

If you open yourself up to it, we're going to have fun! This is not your grandma's white shirt and blue jeans photo session.

Representing everyone well

We celebrate you are regardless of size, race, sexuality, gender, or background. If you don't see someone like you on my site, let's talk so I can represent you!

Lynchburg, VA wedding Photographer

That's me.

I’m Erika and I’ve been photographing weddings for the last 8 years. 


I like photography, but what I love is relationships. I treasure getting to build a relationship with you that helps you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I am passionate about preserving the feeling of your wedding and your relationship through photos that will last for generations. 


I’ll take charge whenever necessary to reduce your stress and capture the photos you want, but I also love to be a fly on the wall through all the special moments that cannot be posed or expected! I’m there for it all!


Every package includes

10 Year Gallery

All your photos come to you in an online gallery to access anywhere, anytime for 10 years!

Timeless Editing

Joy Shot's true to color, vibrant editing will ensure your photos look timeless and preserve the true colors of your day.

Engagement Session

This is bundled in at no additional cost to help you feel more comfortable in front of the camera before wedding day!

Erika made us feel super relaxed and be way less awkward in front of the camera! She is very chill and very quick witted! Our entire bridal party has told us they want to induct her into our friend group!

Krista Sponsler

We had let Erika know that we wanted to prioritize more “in the moment” photos and boy did she deliver! We received so many fantastic candid photos of our guests (and ourselves) that we will cherish forever.

She works quick but captures everything you ask for and more!  Everyone taking pictures said how amazing she was. My husband doesn’t like pictures but she made him feel and look great in out wedding pictures!
