I had so many problems and big things, little things going wrong for me on my wedding day. And sad to say my maid of honor could have cared less to help, but Any was there and I believe she is the reason my wedding was til beautiful. Just look at the pictures, it rained on my wedding day but she helped me make the best of it. She also went above and beyond by communicating with the marq to move my ceremony site (because of the rain :( ), my 1year old was supose to be the flower girl for our wedding but feel asleep 5 minutes before had so she reanacted it for me, she also brought in an assistant to capture all of the photos that i wanted, I still could go on! Amy is not just about the photos, she really wants your day to be perfect for you. I know that out of this I have amazing wedding photos, a photographer for life and someone I would like to call a friend! Pick her and you will not regret it. I promise

Amy and Dan are simply awesome. I visited several photographers and when I met Amy I knew right away she was going to be our photographer. She took so much time to listen and get to know us during our first visit. To be honest, before meeting Amy I was totally confused by other photographers packages. But, Amy made everything so easy. She was so consultative and their images were beautiful. At our engagement session last Fall we had so much fun. At first I didn't think I wanted to do it, but Amy was right and am so glad we did. She created the most amazing custom photo guest book for us. My friends and family raved about it at our wedding and now that it is full of our friends well wishes and notes, it is something I'll treasure forever. On the wedding day Amy and Dan captured every moment of our wedding day perfectly. Amy was with us girls from the time we were at the salon and Dan was with the guys as they got ready. They were litterally in two places at once. And when they were together, I especially loved how how they captured the same moments but from totally different views. They were so awesome to work with, fun, friendly and professional. We had so many of our guest come up to us to compliment us about our photographers. Amy and Dan - thank you so much. We love our wedding pictures and it will be difficult to decide which images to put in our album. You gave us everything we had dreamed of and more. We will recommend you to all our friends!

I was recently maid of honor at my sister's wedding. Amy and her husband, Dan, did an AMAZING job capturing the joyous mood of the day.

From the minute I met Amy, I knew her personality and professionalism would work to her advantage. Her calm and collected manner made taking the pictures relaxing and fun; and they were welcome guests at the wedding. They definitely fit right in with the others.

I especially liked how Amy incorporated the engagement pictures into the guest book, it was a creative touch. I would have to say a strength of Amy and Dan's is capturing the candid moments. It was all so beautiful!

It was so exciting to see the pictures for the first time. Artful Joy Photography's blog (and website) is well-organized and a great way to get the much-anticipated sneak-peak, as well as, a great resource to see how Amy's passion for what she does shows through in all of her endeavors.

We couldn't have asked for better photographers to capture our wedding day. From the beginning, Amy was very helpful. She made us feel at ease during a time when many important decisions needed to be made. We were a little nervous at our engagement session, but she helped us through that and took some very beautiful pictures.

Amy and Dan's ability to take great pictures at the ceremony and reception was phenominal. They didn't get in anyone's way, and even though our guests enjoyed their company, we didn't even notice them taking pictures. When I first viewed our "sneek peek" I was blown away. Looking at the pictures took me back to our wedding day, from our time at the salon to our first dance, and I have a feeling that Mark and I will enjoy looking at them for years to come.

If you want a photographer that cares about you and your day - you need to look no further. Amy and Dan will go out of their way to help you remember your day for a lifetime. That is what photographs are all about - capturing those precious and unbelievable moments of your day that just go by way to fast. The pictures I have seen so far are just what I wanted. They captured the details that were so important to us and they captured the emotions and fun that we had on our day. My husband definitely is not a picture kind of guy but they made him feel at ease and they got some amazing photos. With my deepest apprection and gratitude - thank you! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AMY AND DAN. I don't believe that any other photographer would do so much. They definitely go above and beyond! I could go on and on about these two!

Here is a quote from my sister in law...
"they have done a wonderful job as far as I've seen... they were absolutely fantastic and more then just photographers the day of the wedding. I can remember him dragging around all our purses and sunglasses and such... they were absolutely great. It felt like they were just a part of the family the way they were helping out, while doing their job. I can't even express how impressed I was by them... and you can quote this to them if you would like. Really - they need to know how good a job they do!!!" - Jamie Chapman

Amy is absolutely wonderful! We are so happy that we booked with her. She spent over an hour on the phone with me the first time I contacted her. I didn't know where to start, I looked at lots of photographers websites, but was overwhelmed. She opened my eyes to how important wedding photogrpahy is to us and was very consultative. We first met at our consultation and I knew after being with her just a short while that she was the right photographer for us. Even thought I wanted to book her right then, she suggested that I go visit other photographers. So I did, and 3 days later, I booked! Her work was fabulous but her personality is what clicked with us. Later that year we had our engagement session and I was nervous. Amy set me at ease and our pictures were awesome. On our wedding day Amy and Dan were more than just our photographers they felt like great friends. Amy took care of me and my girls. And Dan was great with the guys. They were so much more than just our photographers. When we viewed our photographs for the first time, I couldn't hold back the tears. I am amazed at how Amy and Dan captured moments that I didn't even know were happening. I especially am moved at how the images show us as we are and how they captured the love Steve and I have for each other. The best thing was taking Amy's advice to do a First Look. I really didn't think I wanted to do it, but now am so happy we did. I still remember the incredible feelings and emotions Scott and I had when we met. It was crazy and out of the whole day, that time is burned into my memory more than any other. Amy our First Look are some of my favorite pictures of the day! I don't know how you do what you do, but you are truly awesome. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends!!!
