I want to congratulate you on your engagement and upcoming wedding! My name is Joy, and I am the owner of “A Moment of Joy Photography,” and I know that there are many photographers out there to choose from, so I would like to share with you what my philosophy for wedding photography is and what I have to offer you if you were to hire me to preserve your wedding day in photographs.

I know, from ten years of wedding experience, when to “get” the shot, or to back off and let you enjoy the moment. This is very important. People will be pulling you in all directions on your wedding day and I will not be one of them! I have a very photojournalistic approach which makes me a very personal photographer. I will spend the day capturing everything you do, every one of your personal moments. Because of my experience, I am able to catch a tear, a smile, or a glance that happens so fast, you didn’t even know it happened; but when you look through your wedding album you will see it for the first time the way myself and your guests did. These are the moments you’ll want to capture forever in a photograph.

Your wedding day is a story that photographs will tell for generations to come; therefore, with all of my wedding packages, I contract for the whole day. Not one moment should be missing because you only paid for a few hours. I will capture every moment from getting ready at the salon until the limo drives away! Remember, after you’ve boxed your dress, dried your flowers and the food and cake have been eaten, the only thing left to help keep your memories of the day fresh are your pictures!

In addition to all day coverage, with all of my wedding packages, I give you ALL of your pictures on CD so you will have EVERY picture. I don’t want you, my customer, after your wedding is over, to look at your photographs and have moments missing because you had to choose, because of cost, which ones you couldn’t keep. I also include an engagement photo session, which is great opportunity for me to get to know you and for you to have great photo’s to display at your wedding.

I invite you to visit my website at www.amomentofjoyphotography.com . I would love to meet with you, so you can view complete wedding albums of other brides who have already entrusted me as their wedding day photographer. When you are ready to start looking at photographers, please give me a call (916) 952-2207. Read less

We had the best experience with a moment of joy ! Our wedding date was double booked with our venue and Joy was able to work things out to still accommodate us. Not only that but thanks to her beautiful pictures we have been featured in bridal magazines for the last two years ( from our engagement pictures to wedding pictures). Thanks joy for such an amazing experience!

We interviewed a few local photographers within our price range, but I wasn't satisified until we met Joy. Joy had such an enthusiastic, yet professional demeanor. She had the perfect photo package for us. She includes engagement photos. She and her assistant take the wedding photos on the day, and you have them ALL day. You get the copyrights to ALL your photos, so you can reprint as many as you want! She also makes a photobook, as your wedding album. Right after talking with her and looking at her work, we instantly knew she was the photographer for us. We met a few months later to take our engagements photos. My fiance and I are not comfortable taking photos and it was our first professional photo shoot, but Joy put us at ease and helped guide us for our poses. All though we were posing, Joy did capture the candid moments and they turned out spectacular. Joy gave the photos to me on a CD in a quick turnaround, so I was able to send out our save-the-dates shortly after. When it came to the big day, my make-up artist was running late, but she put me at ease and rescheduled some of our bride and bridesmaids photos. In the end, it all worked out and Joy and her assistant took all the photos we wanted. I'm glad she was there from the beginning to end. She captured every special moment of our wedding. I would definitely reccommend Joy to my family and friends in the future!!!

I would recommend A Moment of Joy Photography to any bride and for any style wedding! Joy is very easy to work with, the prices are very reasonable, and you will never be disappointed with any photo she takes. Joy is very creative and really knows how to capture every moment of joy (she really lives up to her business name!). Joy and her assistant photographers captured so many wonderful pictures on our wedding day and it was like they weren't even there. People look through our wedding album and they are absolutely amazed with the quality of the pictures and the end result of the album as a whole. Our wedding photography was one of the most important parts of our wedding day and Joy made that happen for us.

As a bride you really want your wedding day to be perfect,so I interviewed a few photographers and wanted to get the best deal. I was referred by a mutual friend who had just been in a wedding where Joy was the phtographer. I'm glad I called Joy and booked her for our wedding. Our wedding date was October 2, 2010 and our pictures are amazing. The website for guests to view our pictures was up within a few weeks. Joy designed the lay out of our wedding album book which i was a little nervous about but I'm glad i did. Our album captures every single details from our wedding day and so much more. I would highly recommend using her as yoyr photographer.

Joy was a pleasure to work with from the very first phone call. Communication was great, she had wonderful ideas and reasonable prices. We have a very large immediate family and the day of the wedding she was able to keep everyone organized and photographed with the right family group. She found a beautiful spot in my parents back yard (the reception site) that we had not even considered and it turned out better than we ever dreamed of! The wedding album she designed for us was perfect and I couldn't have done a better job myself. I don't have one thing that I would change or do differently. She made my wedding day less stressful just by being herself :-) I recommend her to everyone, not just for weddings but for portraits, family and pregnancy photos as well. You will not be disappointed if you choose Joy as your photographer!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley and Jordan Abercrombie, June 25, 2010

A Moment of Joy Photography was the best decision that we made during our wedding panning. I knew that she had a talent that I wanted to capture our wedding. I had ranted and raved to my husband about how I wanted Joy to be our photographer for our wedding and once Jordan saw all the talented pictures that she showed us at our first meeting, he was speechless.

For our wedding, Joy was not only our photographer. She MADE my wedding day timeline, she organized the entire family while we were taking picture after picture and she took all the stress off me and took care of everything! I truly believe that it was Joy that made our special day a success.

Now that we are six months pregnant, I still get comments on our photos and our wedding album. The photography is the most important part to me for a wedding, you have those pictures forever and they capture memories forever. Joy has made that dream come true for us and we will forever have those memories.
