In his previous life, Joey Puloné spent 12 years as an art director and graphic designer. After a lifetime of passion for photography, Joey finally had to listen to his heart. With some creative talent, people skills, and a modicum of passion, he launched his career into photojournalism and wedding photography in 2004.

What really sets Joey apart is his relaxed, cheeky, style, and his ability to connect with people from all walks of life. A skill grown out of necessity living in many different towns while growing up all over California and Virginia in his youth. Joey's innate curiosity and compassion for people is what allows him to capture those intimate and playful moments.

With Joey you’re guaranteed to feel the freedom to be yourself. He always finds a way to help everyone loosen-up. Besides the light direction Joey gives while creating portraits, you’ll forget he’s even around, and that’s when the good story-telling-stuff happens and is captured in that little black box!

Think of Joey as your own personal "Cool Hand Luke" that handles every situation with grace and panache. So even if your "Aunt Betty" or "Uncle Frank" is a little out-of-sorts on your wedding day, Joey still "brings it" and remains focused on you...all while wearing a huge, contagious smile.

When Joey’s not running around making photographs of groovy couples, you’ll find him chasing his gorgeous wife and 3 crazy, little, whoppers. Read less

We LOVED working with joey. he is so infectiously upbeat, which had a great effect on our day. i loved that he didn't have a set number of hours of coverage - we didn't have to figure out how to shift his arrival/departure to capture what pieces we wanted covered, he was in it for the long haul. He also gave us some very good pearls of advice in terms of planning the day of timeline that i think really contributed to the day moving at a relaxed pace, where we had just enough time for everything, didn't feel rushed and moved on time. plus, most of all, his work is amazing. we have only seen a few of our pictures yet, but we are so excited about them!

I had the immense pleasure of working with Joey for my wedding. He is extremely professional and very creative with his photography. I had a vision for the photos I wanted to have captured and Joey far surpassed what I could have imagined. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and a lot of fun. When I received my photos, tears were bountiful. They are gorgeous and Joey captured the raw emotion in many shots. These are something that I will always treasure. I would HIGHLY recommend Joey to others....you will not be disappointed.

Joey was absolutely fantastic to work with! We met with him twice, each time for a few hours, prior to our wedding to discuss the plans for our wedding day. Joey really took the time to figure out what was important to us and he provided lots of helpful suggestions and things to keep in mind regarding the schedule for the day and fitting in our personal preferences for the locations and shots to get. He was there for the entire day, working from 10 AM when we started getting ready until 1 AM when we finished with the professional photos. Joey and his assistant did an amazing job getting the images they needed without being intrusive. We haven't seen all of the pictures yet, but the few that we have been able to preview have been amazing! Joey does incredible work that is very different from the standard wedding photography and we would highly recommend him to others!

We had the pleasure of having Joey as our photographer at our wedding this past weekend and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We don't live in the area so we didn't have the chance to meet in person until the morning of the wedding, but he instantly made us feel comfortable. He is very creative and photographs like a brilliant artist, and he moves around like a ninja, I didn't even notice that he was there at our wedding. He went way out of his way to make our already special day all the more special and memorable. I could personally guarantee you that he will meet your expectation and then some, no matter how high your expectation may be. Our experience from working with him was just so fun, so easy and so natural. A couple days after the wedding, he posted one "teaser" picture and that one image just said it all - it literally was a teaser, my husband and I are dying to see the rest of them! Thank you Joey! You rock!

Joey was such a blast to work with! He was professional, but also very fun. We have not seen our pictures yet, but I know they are going to be amazing. We felt very comfortable with Joey and didn't feel like we were being directed and posing the whole night. Joey's approach is fresh as well as his technique. I would highly recommend Joey to any bride and groom who is looking for something other than a boring posed wedding album.

Great!! Everything about Our Special Day went according to plan. He was attentive, and discreet at the same time. Very respectful and creative. The photos came out great just as we expected. If the website had the option, we would rate him a 10. We would certainly recommend him to others and hire him for future events.

Like most couples pictures were of upmost importance to us when planning our wedding. You study all the latest bridal magazines, watch every wedding related tv show, spend countless hours working out ALL the details, just so your wedding day is "PICTURE PERFECT". This is where JOEY steps in. Some people are super comfortable with having their picture taken, my husband and I are NOT those people. Right from the start Joey made us feel very at ease. Before you know it we were having a blast getting our pictures taken and laughing the whole way through. We can't thank Joey enough for our breathtaking photos. They looked as if we pulled them out of a magazine. Don't be one of those brides that goes all out on everything else and skimps on their photographer! When the "I Do's" are all said and done, you'll wish you had photos to relive those moments over and over for years to come.

We were so excited to meet Joey and as soon as we all sat down to chat, we immediately clicked. We spent almost 3 hours just talking to him about the wedding and our lives. I was very excited to see what he would do on our wedding day and he didnt' disappoint. He was on time, unobtrusive, professional, yet very fun and laid back as well. He got so many great shots that I wasn't even aware were being taken. I love his "on the fly" kind of shooting. He's creative and lets you be you and everyone just had so much fun. I'm so grateful for all the wonderful memories he captured. He's been a plethora of photography information as well. I highly suggest his services!

Joey was amazing. He made taking pictures fun! And, my husband and I look fantastic in all of the pictures.

Joey made everyone feel comfortable and people really got into the candid photos - although we did have requests for specific photos. I really think he managed to be everywhere at once.

We have a great selection of pictures that highlight the whole evening. What a great way to remember our wedding.

I would recommend Joey to anyone!
