It is truly a “joy” to work with Vanessa. Her quality is unlike any other. You will look back at your photographs and truly feel the emotions and ambiance from your special day. Each time I look through my album (which is often) I truly feel as if I am reliving the best day of my life. We started our journey with Vanessa by first taking our engagement photos in Central Park. We had so many great shots we could have filled two albums. This was also a great way for my husband and I to get a little more comfortable in front of the camera. Vanessa does an amazing job at providing directions as to where to look, how to stand and just in general look and feel natural. Between the time of our engagement pictures to our wedding day we were in contestant communication discussing things like our photo must-have list, locations to take pictures after church and the day-of timeframe. Once our day finally arrived Vanessa and her team arrived to my parents house ready to take on the day. Their calm and professional manner allowed us all to be comfortable and kept us on our tight schedule, especially taking family portraits at the church (we have a large family!) The day/night flew by all while Vanessa and her team captured the memories that would last us a lifetime. It was on our flight home from our honeymoon in Italy that we received an email that our proofs would be ready shortly, and boy were they. As the hype of the wedding was beginning to come down, we were overjoyed to get our proofs so quickly to share and reminisce over. Within weeks of getting our proofs we had already ordered our thank-you cards, chose our album and ordered prints to hang in our home. Because of the quality of the technology Vanessa uses, we were virtually able to see our album come alive. We were also able to physically hold the many different albums and print options. I would recommend Vanessa Joy time and time again and am so grateful for her talent and passion.

About

Hi everyone!

Thanks for stopping by to see my work. I hope you'll have time to check out my website and blog too!

Well you can read below about the "history" of me and my photographic journey on my website, but the truth is I just love marriage. I support marriage and love that I get to have such a personal relationship with my clients during one of the most important times in their relationship with each other. It's incredibly special to me to be a part of that. 

My amazing husband, NJ Wedding Videographer Rob Adams Films, is my constant inspiration not only photographically, but through showing me what true love is every day. Together with our Pekingese dog/first-born-child, Tico, we're at the beginning of our own marriage and little family ourselves.



I am eternally grateful for the gift to capture priceless moments for others to treasure and I take great joy in using it everyday.

My entire wedding experience with Vanessa and her team was an absolute pleasure! Not only was she able to capture the most beautiful pictures, she is incredibly easy and professional to work with. My photos so far are breathtaking and I can't wait to see my final wedding album. The quality of my engagement album is pristine, with an amazing wood and leather cover. I can only imagine how much I will love what's yet to come! Thank you Vanessa!

Vanessa is truely amazing. We hired her for our wedding on 9.15.2017 at the Ashford Estates and we couldn’t be more in love with our photos. She tells a story through her photos and the end result is absolutely magnificent. She makes taking hours of pictures easy and to the point wasting no time in getting the shots she needs.

The best surprise was receiving a book with some of our printed photos at the end of the night. It was such a nice surprise and we loved having that sneak peak. Relieving our day through her photos has been magical.

We hired Vanessa to photograph our wedding on August 5 2017 at Mallard Island Yacht Club and we really could not be more thrilled! Vanessa made our wedding even more of a fairytale. From the moment I met her via Skype to discuss photography options, to the year of wedding planning, to the wedding day, Vanessa was a joy to work with. She is a true artist and extremely talented, my family and I are beyond happy with all the pictures - she really captured the best day of my life and I feel like I can truly relive the day through her photos! My guests couldn't believe that she had a few beautiful pictures to share the night of the wedding & even gave us a small photo album that evening. One of my favorite things about Vanessa is how calm she is. Wedding days can be overwhelming but she was completely relaxed and kept her cool while also sticking to the timeline perfectly - we couldn't believe it! Thank you Vanessa for capturing my wedding beyond perfectly!
