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.

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!

From start to finish, it was a pleasure working with Joyelle. I loved the samples of her work that I saw on StyleMePretty and on her site, and as soon as we talked, I could tell she understood what I was looking for in my own wedding photos. Knowing we were on the same page leading up to the ceremony meant I had zero photo-related stress that day; I knew we were in capable hands.

On the day of the wedding, Joyelle was just as wonderful as she had been in our previous conversations. She was warm and enthusiastic and professional, and really captured every element of our wedding. She has such a great eye, and I loved that she took photos of the big moments (the kiss, the ring exchange) and little things as well, like these pretty azaleas I was too busy to notice and the reactions of family members during toasts.

We had a small wedding, and at a couple points throughout the day, my mother and I looked at each other said how happy we were that Joyelle was there. Her warmth and friendliness meant she blended in among our friends and family, and still somehow caught everything through her lens. She found great locations on the property for the posed shots, so we were able to take those pretty quickly and not feel like we were missing all of cocktail hour.

The photographs themselves are gorgeous, and working with Joyelle after the ceremony (asking questions about prints, photo albums, etc.) was just as easy. My mother-in-law bought a photo album of the wedding from her as a Christmas gift for my husband and me, and it's such a lovely keepsake.

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.
