Captured our special day perfectly
I can't recommend Joy highly enough! She captured such lovely images of our special day and yet we hardly knew she was there. She blended into the guests and because of this got some amazing relaxed shots of both ourselves and our family/friends. We can't thank her enough.Sent on 19/08/2019
Full of ideas for lovely photos.
Just wanted to thank Joy for making our wedding photography so smooth and painless. From our initial meeting, Joy was enthusiastic, organised and understanding, putting us at ease. On the day, she was relaxed and coordinated, and full of ideas for lovely photos. We received many comments from our guests on how friendly and unobtrusive Joy was, dissolving into the background to capture the candid shots we wanted. Can't recommend you enough Joy!Sent on 02/04/2020
She was absolutely incredible.
