    My husband and I are so glad that we booked Vanessa Joy photography for our wedding. Vanessa was great to work with and send us information cards and emails with tips throughout our wedding planning process. During the wedding, we worked with Amie and Nino (photographers) and a very lovely photography assistant who’s name is escaping me! All 3 worked well together to ensure that our day was captured perfectly and now we have to the photo previews to see all of their hard work.

  • Simply the BEST. Your search is over.

    Vanessa and I have been working alongside each other for more than 15 years in the form of photographer and videographer. She sees moments and captures them with the utmost creativity, expertise and candidness. Vanessa is a master at wrangling families to perform fast, efficient photo shoots ensuring you get to enjoy your day as opposed to spending it staring at the camera. She’s not endorsed by Canon cameras for nothing. Vanessa is a World Class photographer, educator, professional and philanthropist. You won’t be disappointed.

  • JOY to work with!

    I would like to take this time to say a big huge THANK YOU to Vanessa, Jaye, and her whole team! There are really no words to adequately describe how AMAZING and professional they are! From start to finish with our wedding, literally an absolute, "Joy" to work with! Almost every person at our wedding commented on the photography team and how great they were! The Photos are legendary, especially our champagne shot! With Vanessa and team you don't have to worry about anything! Don't hesitate on booking her, you won't regret it!

  • The Best of the Best

    Working with Vanessa was not just a dream come true, it was so much more. The entire day, watching her work was incredible. She is wonderful with clients, has an impeccable eye, and truly is just a delight to work with. She got the gallery to us in record time and all of the images are breath taking. We honestly cannot pick favorites because EVERY single one is perfection. We cannot wait to work with her again. She is welcome at the venue anytime! Trust us when tell you to hire her! Snatch her up QUICK!
