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 an outstanding photographer for our recent wedding. From our first conversation, I knew she was organized and had an amazing talent to capture special moments.

Joyelle was so easy to work with despite the fact I was planning a Boston area wedding from Los Angeles. She was quick to respond to my many emails and provided helpful input/suggestions.

Joyelle's presence at our wedding was perfect - she put my husband and me, as well as our families, at ease and understood our desire to focus on the moments and not spend too much tie on staged group shoots. During the ceremony and reception, she blended into the party and we forgot she was there!

When we received our photos a few short weeks later, we were all so impressed by Joyelle's work. She captured our wedding with such thought and care - it's hard to choose which photos are our favorites!

I would recommend Joyelle's work to those interested in finding a talented and personable photographer to capture special moments.

Joyelle is a talented and artistic photographer and we were so happy to have found her to photograph both our wedding and engagement pictures. Photos were one of the most important things to us as we knew we would look back on those for many years. Joyelle was the first vendor we found and our favorite person to work with. After my husband and I met with her in her welcoming studio, we knew immediately that she would be a great choice and it was an easy decision to choose her as our photographer.

We are so pleased with Joyelle's work and it completely exceeds our expectations. She is very personable, easy to work with, professional and pleasant to spend time with. She listened carefully to our ideas for our pictures and made excellent suggestions at the times when we just weren't sure what we wanted. She captured every aspect of our wedding from the scenery and decorations to getting beautiful candids of nearly every guest at some point throughout the wedding. We barely saw her during the reception, yet she was always in the right place at the right time as we could see from the beautiful photos she took throughout the night. We loved her work and would recommend her to everyone. We are thrilled to have her gorgeous pictures to document such an important day in our lives!

Simply put: we couldn't have chosen a better photographer than Joyelle West. From the first moment we met her, my wife and I both felt extremely at ease. Starting with our engagement photo session, Joyelle was able to capture us in ways we didn't think possible. Her artistry, professionalism, and overall personality made us feel incredibly fortunate for having found her. We couldn't recommend a wedding photographer any more highly than we recommend Joyelle.

Where do I start? We absolutely LOVE Joyelle and LOVED her photos.

She took our engagement photos the spring before our wedding and did a great job of putting two way-too-self-conscious folks at ease in front of the camera. We laughed our way through the session and are so pleased that we captured that exciting, somewhat frenzied time.

Come wedding day, Joyelle was a total blessing. She helped keep me calm throughout the day, even when things started to run a bit behind schedule. She has a sweet, warm presence that made me feel instantly at ease. Like a good friend was taking the photos. For the posed shots, she did a wonderful job corralling the herd of family members. For the candids, she was invisible. I still don't know how she managed to capture so much.

Throughout the process, she was a total professional. Really, a dream to work with. Helpful, super responsive, funny, sweet, respectful and collaborative.

And her photos? Absolutely lovely! Friends and family have been singing her praises for weeks. Going in, we totally trusted her to capture the spaces and faces and emotions of the day, and she nailed it. Her photos show belly laughs, tears, details we missed and some pretty ridiculous dance moves. When looking back at the photos, it’s very easy to be transported back to the day.

In sum, Joyelle is the best! I couldn't recommend her more highly.

We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer than Joyelle West. She's amazing! In each of our interactions with her, beginning with our first meeting in her cute Cambridge office, Joyelle was pleasant, thoughtful, and new exactly which questions to ask so that she could meet our photography needs -- a true professional.

Joyelle beautifully captured the feel of our big day, mixing emontionally vivid candids with just the right detail shots. Probably what amazed us (and our family) most was the number of photos with my husband and I both looking natural, happy, and totally in love. We normally ruin pictures with funny faces or with fake plasticky smiles, but Joyelle made us feel so at ease that we forgot about looking a certain way and could focus on the extreme happiness of getting married!

Our package included a digital copy of the entire suite of photos, which arrived on the cutest USB drive ever, making them easy to share with our family. We also had the option to purchase prints from her photolab, which are of the utmost quality. Even though we had our digital files, we ordered some prints from her lab because the hard copies were so gorgeous.

I wish we could give Joyelle 6 out of 5 stars because she exceeded our expectations in every way. When I look at her photos, I feel like I've gone back in time to my wedding day, and all of the joy and excitement comes surging back. Priceless.

Don't let her casual and laid back demeanor fool you...Joyelle is a true professional. She did a wonderful job capturing all the important moments of our wedding. Looking through our pictures is like re-living the day. Her emphasis is on natural shots and less so on posed shots...which worked well for us. Also straightforward about costs and services from the beginning (ie. no hidden costs or attempts to rip you off)...which was a nice change when comparing her to other photographers.

Joyelle took the most amazing photos at our wedding. Not only were they beautiful to look at online, but the prints are stunning in person. She truly captured the energy of the day and every time we look at a photo we are transported right back. We've had the hardest time narrowing in down our favorites because they are all so good.
Joyelle was also really flexible on site. We definitely ended up with a lot of shots requested by family and friends that were not on the original list, and required some running around but she got every important one.
From start to finish, she was great to work with. I definitely recommend Joyelle.

We had a city hall ceremony in June and we only started contacting photographers one month before the date. Luckily we were able to book Joyelle to photograph our ceremony and worked out a package that fit our needs. We did two hours in and around Boston City Hall. Because it was raining, we regathered another day and did one hour outside in public gardens and BU. She was professional, efficient, and very accommodating. And most important of all, we received great photographs of the significant moments we had with each other and with friends, and at meaningful places. We highly recommend Joyelle!

I met Joyelle on my wedding day right before our first look photo shoot. My husband and I immediately felt comfortable with her and she did a fantastic job working with us and capturing the excitement of the moment. We were impressed with her ability to get meaningful candid photos without realizing she was even there taking the pictures. She had also planned out good spots to take pictures prior to our arrival and made great efficient use of the limited time we had with her before the ceremony. We were very impressed with the photos we received less than a month after the wedding.
