Photography for the lover in everyone.

Kind testimonials from happy campers/clients. Read 'em and weep (at least that's what I did.)

Reviews

"Our overall experience was incredible. Joel is a very talented photographer, but moreover he is a very wonderful and thoughtful person to work with! Joel made us feel loved and known throughout the whole process."

"I couldn't be more

delighted with my photos & the services you provided. You didn't just show up & "get the job done". You build relationships with our friends & family, laughed & encouraged, & authentically became part of the day. You directed in the kindest of ways, not over exerting command but rather, working alongside. You take the posture of "with" rather than "above" or "over".

Some of my favorite memories of the actual day were when you were taking photos of just Kyle and I. Kyle & I just being ourselves, & you just being yourself, with beautiful images, beautiful art, as the outcome."

"I believe that we

all see our surroundings in a way that is intimate to our own character. It is evident in how we choose to capture moments. As a photographer, Joel chooses to see beauty around him. He removes the limit of escaping time to capture a second of time that is fundamental to a memory. His capability to capture sweet moments is what initially drew me to his work, but something even more rare and what amazes me in his work, Joel's genuine heart. He creates a friendship with his clients so that he is able to see moments through the client's eyes and the result is work both meaningful and beautiful."

"Our experience was

incredible. Both Andrew and I, were extremely comfortable throughout the entire day and wanted you by us for everything. Your presence is easy, comfortable, positive, and wonderful company. I also heard from several people how much you helped behind the scenes... something that we would never expect, but couldn't be more thankful for. It shows the heart behind the camera.
There are several words that come to mind - authentic, non-staged, emotional, intentional, contemporary, pure.
Our photos are very much specific to us - they reflect us and no one else. I think that's something every bride wishes for.

"your work initially

caught our attention because you have the ability to reflect the true nature of a relationship within a single frame. Your work doesn't attempt to send an artistic message that overwhelms the integrity of the moment; you take a photo and let the subject stand on its own. Working with you was easy, you didn't put any pressure on us to be any certain way. All you asked of us was to be ourselves with each other and at the end of the experience it didn't feel as though you worked for us, even though you gave us a product we asked for. We were all just hanging out together."

You were so down to earth and totally rocked the hike through the arboretum! I love how natural each photo is! How stunning you made us look! We can feel the love and happiness when looking at each photograph. You didn't just capture a day, you captured our story!! Thank you for being with us all day long!!! You are amazing."

About

There is nothing like raw, honest love. A love that is selfless, and hard to find. A love that isn’t afraid to be the first to say “I’m sorry.” A love that pushes through the time, tears, and relentless pursuit of understanding what it means to say “I love you” and mean it.

HELLO!
I'm Joel

It’s this kind of love that drew me to photography in the first place. I found this kind of love at a young age, and I consider it a gift to get to witness beautiful people live it out together. My desire as an artist, narrator, and photographer is to discover and document that wild, deep love you’ve found that makes you choose each other every day. 

By the way, I’m so thrilled you’re here.
