Wedding & Family Photos

I was so lucky to have found Michelle at Joy James Photography. She captured our wedding day perfectly and I could not have been happier with the outcome. She has a wonderful eye for detail and can capture some very personal and creative shots. We were so pleased we used her services again for our daughters 1st Birthday pics and we were just as pleased! Not always easy working with a one year old and I honestly was not sure we were going to get much because my daughter was being quite difficult but somehow Michelle did it! We have so many beautiful pictures. Michelle is very professional and has such a great attitude that for both occasions I never felt worried or anxious about our photos. She is the best and my family and I will definitely be using her service again!

Michelle was very professional and knowledgeable! She was really easy to work with, and went out of her way to send us some of the best pictures from our wedding ASAP. She knew the best positioning and techniques. Our wedding and engagement photos turned out amazing! Michelle far exceeded our expectations! I’d certainly use her again, and I recommend her to anyone I know!

Wedding, Engagement, & Family Photos

Michelle is amazing. Michelle shot our wedding on April 25th and we couldn't be happier with the photos. She gets the best shots, is very patient and is very organized. We were amazed at how good our photos were. We had a very small wedding and she was able to capture some of the best moments. Take a look at her work.... you will not be disappointed!



Proposal Photos

Michelle was fantastic.  I used her to photograph my proposal, and I could not be happier with her performance.  Planning was a breeze as she offered excellent insights and suggestions.  She has a wonderful eye for detail and composition, and the photos are a testament to that.  I could not be happier with my choice.

Michelle did a great job capturing our special day and the outcomes reflect that exclusivity and the intimacy of the setup. We took her advice to tap into the nice weather as a backdrop of the ceremony which came out really nice.



Maternity & Family Photos

Michelle was amazing. She helped me decide outfits for the shoot. She was great at identifying the scenery and where to get the shot. The lighting was really good and she found the area really fast. All around it was a great experience.

Wedding Photos

Michelle (Joy James Photography), was by far one of the best parts of our night. We didn't have a clue what we needed to do for our wedding photography, and she wrangled that mess like a true pro. Incredibly personable and professional, I recommend her tenfold.



Wedding Photos

We booked Michelle at Joy James Photography for our wedding in June. She was phenomenal and many of our guests commented on how great she was. A few days before the wedding, she was going above and beyond helping me brain storm backup plans in the event it rained (it didn't, thankfully!). On the day of, she arrived on time and ready to go. Once we were married she immediately started rallying people for us to get pictures taken. 

We weren't the easiest bunch to work with (lots of people and children wandering around) but she remained calm and focused and herded us all into one space. She had great attention to detail, she'd make comments about people needing to shift over inches for a better shot. She gave my husband and I some great poses for pictures. Everything turned out great and was delivered in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend Michelle and we plan on using her in the future.

Family Photos

Michelle was incredible! She traveled out to Austin, Texas for our first ever family photo shoot. Our photo's came out stunning. She was prompt and stayed in constant communication with me as we were both traveling in from out of town. She gave us such a beautiful array of pictures, capturing my little girls personalities all the way down to the love my grandparents share. We cried when we first reviewed all the pictures. We cannot wait to use her for future life events!

Maternity Photos

Michelle had great recommendations for the location of our maternity shoot. We had to re-schedule due to weather issues and she was flexible with times and days to accommodate this unexpected change. The pictures she took turned out beautiful and we feel we got a variety of styles in our photos due to her knowledge of poses and changing where we were in the park. During the photo shoot, she was friendly and personable which made it an even more enjoyable experience. We would definitely recommend her and use her again for future photo sessions.

Hiring Michelle (Joy James Photography) for our courthouse wedding was one of the best decisions we made. I'm so in love with our pictures and she was so easy to work with.

Maternity Photos

We used Joy James Photography for our maternity shoot. I didn't really know what I was looking for so it was great that she took the lead. I'm so glad she did because our pictures turned out great! She knew exactly where and how to pose us and it didn't matter that I had no clue what I was doing. The price was right, and she was relaxed yet professional. We received our photos in a timely matter. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know.
