Joyelle did an incredible job as our wedding photographer. Right from the get-go she was incredibly professional and upbeat. She met with me and my now husband to talk about vision for our day and made several great suggestions that we kept in mind as we were planning our big day. On the day of she was fantastic at corraling both our families for photos before our ceremony. Then she took us to a park near our venue for some shots of just me and my husband. That was such a great idea because when we returned to the venue all we had to do was get in place to walk down the aisle. Throughout the night she was inconspicuous, in fact I hardly noticed she was there! We just received our photos earlier this week and they are FANTASTIC! She captured the spirit and emotion of our day so well—what a gift for me and my husband! Joelle is a gem - easy to work with, exceedingly professional and her photos alone speak for themselves.

Joyelle did our photos for a mini-engagement session and the big day. I just got our photos back and I could not be happier. My husband and I are both quite camera shy, but Joyelle made us feel comfortable and was unobtrusive while still getting all of the necessary shots which made us feel much less self-conscious. Joyelle also got so many great pictures of our guests enjoying themselves which we will cherish for many years to come. I 100% recommend Joyelle for a low-stress photography experience with amazing results.

After seeing Joyelle's website, we really loved her work and thought she had a little something extra from the many, many other photographers in the Boston area. She has talent for capturing great angles, and getting that emotion on film that you want to remember after the day is over. Her final products are just gorgeous.

Perhaps more important, Joyelle was just awesome to work with from beginning to end. She was up for anything, including our outdoor engagement shoot on a sub-freezing day in Boston, and was also game to add in a few larger group shots on the wedding day, despite the challenge of having to wrangle so many people. The whole time she was nothing but upbeat and excited, and that made our experience all that much better! We feel like we were very lucky to work with Joyelle!

My (now husband) and I had a small, mid-week courthouse wedding and wanted a photographer for 1.5 hours to capture the ceremony and for a little portrait session. I found Joyelle through a Google image search of "Boston courthouse weddings" and was immediately impressed by the fact that ALL of the good photos in the search results were hers! I don't know anyone else who's had a courthouse wedding, so a lot of the process--and especially how the setting would look--was a mystery to me, but Joyelle is experienced in this type of wedding and was able to answer all of my bazillion questions, and even sent me examples of past weddings she'd shot at the Cambridge City Hall so I would know what to expect. We didn't meet her till the day of since the whole affair was rather short-notice, but she was right away so great. I had warned her that both my man and I are very awkward in front of cameras, but she put us at ease and captured us at our best. Joyelle clearly has a passion for her profession that was infectious and made us feel even more excited than we were anyways--a good thing for natural-looking photos! We're so happy with the photos she took! I would totally recommend Joyelle and will definitely be contacting her for some lifestyle portraits for my blog.

Joyelle was so amazing, we couldn't be happier with how our wedding photographs came out! We knew we wanted someone that could take candid shots and loved her documentary style. She really captured our special day and when we got our proofs they surpassed our expectations. Due to planning our wedding in Newport from the Washington DC area, we never even met her in person until the day of the wedding. We just knew from our very first conversation that she was who we wanted to have capture our wedding. We went through the process of interviewing others so that we felt we had done our due diligence but it wasn't really needed, we came right back to her. It was the absolute BEST decision to work with her, she was so incredibly calm and easygoing throughout our wedding and was almost invisible to the guests and she truly captured everyone perfectly. Now when I look at our pictures I see everyone’s emotions, excitement and personalities shine through. It poured the day of our wedding and had planned our entire reception around an arboretum and the grounds. She helped make the best of things and we were blessed because it stopped raining long enough to get some fantastic shots outdoors. We are working on our album now and it is so hard to narrow down the pictures because we love them all! Don’t think twice about working with her, she is phenomenal!!

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important and personal wedding-related decisions you will make. When my wife and I found Joyelle West's website and blog, we instantly fell in love with her artistry, composition, and photo-journalistic style. She is able to perfectly frame a couple capturing their beauty and love for one another as well as the beauty of the surrounding scenery or architectural interest of a location or venue. The colors in Joyelle's photos are brilliant and the quality of light is spectacular.

Once we met Joyelle in person at our engagement shoot, we were even more certain that we were not only in really good hands, but we were so incredibly lucky to be working with her! Joyelle is so much fun and completely puts you at ease. On our wedding day, as she was photographing our bridal party getting ready in our venue, everyone was laughing and joking around with her and having a blast - she just fit right in and practically felt like family. Then during the ceremony and reception, she seamlessly blended into the surroundings and you didn't even realize she was there, and yet we have stunning photos of each and every special moment. Her candids of the wedding party and guests are unparalleled. The personalities and love and joy and warmth of individuals literally radiates right out of the photos.

Looking through all of our photos brings us right back to that day and it has been practically impossible to choose favorites! We are so grateful for Joyelle, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

I have nothing but positive comments about Joyelle!

We met with Joyelle after meeting with several other photographers and knew very quickly that we wanted her to photograph our wedding. What impressed us the most was Joyelle's easy-going nature, talent, and professionalism. She is a clear communicator who asked the right questions, understood what we wanted, and never tried to impose products or extra services on us. Joyelle was prompt with all emails and put us at ease during all of the planning.

On the day of our wedding, Joyelle was a calming and helpful presence. She did a great job negotiating family dynamics for the group shots, and she was so unobtrusive during the ceremony and the rest of the event that we did not even realize she was there.

I love love love the pictures from our wedding. Joyelle really captured the joy of the day. The images are beautiful, and I know we will enjoy looking at them for years to come.

We are so glad that we picked Joyelle to capture our special day! We planned a wedding long distance from Washington DC, so we met her through Skype. Right away, we could tell how detail oriented, professional and organized she was. We met her for the first time at our engagement session, where she made us feel at ease and produced some beautiful photos. The wedding photos were what astounded us - they were unbelievably beautiful and Joyelle captured so many intimate moments. She was responsive to my request to pay attention to special details, such as the dimsum that we wanted to memorialize. She also got great action shots of us dancing. We only wished that we could have had her until the very end of the wedding. Thank you, Joyelle, for producing exquisite photos that will cement a life time full of beautiful memories of our wedding day!

Joyelle was an absolute pleasure to work with -- before, during, and after the wedding.

She met with us several times in the months before the wedding to understand exactly what we wanted -- including the layout of the venue, the moments we wanted captured, and the aesthetic we hoped to achieve (both with the event and the pictures).

On the day itself, she was an unobtrusive presence. But, when certain individuals had mini-meltdowns during the family photos, she not only maintained her equanimity but also helped make everyone calm down and feel comfortable.

The wedding photographs themselves were everything we had hoped for -- they beautifully captured the most important day of our lives. We know our families will cherish them for year to come.

But that wasn't the end of it! We told Joyelle about our (admittedly somewhat narcissistic) desire to have our wedding featured on Style Me Pretty. And she made it happen. Thanks for everything, Joyelle!

I would highly recommend Joyelle as a wedding photographer to any and all of my friends! She was terrific and my husband and I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos!

We were able to meet with Joyelle before the wedding and we could tell immediately that she was incredibly professional and put a lot of thought into planning for the day. She made the effort beforehand to find out exactly what we wanted and what our families wanted and figured out how to make that happen.

Our wedding was at a slightly unconventional site (a summer camp), but that didn't faze Joyelle. She was able to highlight the venue in her photos and make great use of all the space in spontaneous ways. She had a very calm and collected presence while taking photos that kept all of us relaxed too. Her photography during the ceremony and reception was also excellent. She managed to capture all of our biggest moments while being completely unobtrusive.

Joyelle makes a fantastic wedding photographer and you would be lucky to have her!
