I try to cultivate a lush and quirky style, that brings out rich colors, rays of sunlight, and your unique personality!
What's most important to me, though, is that you are comfortable and having fun and that whatever you love, I helping capture memories of that for many years to come. 

These are just some of my favorites over the years that will help you get a taste of my style
You can also visit joyshotsphotography.client-gallery.com for full galleries from weddings and other sessions.
