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.

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!

Vanessa is truly the most incredible photographer! She shot our engagement photos and wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond, and from the very first interaction was a pleasure to work with. Over the past year of planning our wedding, Vanessa and Jaye were kind, attentive, organized and professional. They quickly answered any and all of our questions and we never once had any stress regarding our wedding photography! Their attention to detail and attention to us was remarkable! On our wedding day, it never felt like the photographer arrived and was rushing to snap photos; Vanessa and her team seemed like an addition to our day and captured the most beautiful and amazing photos. My husband and I cannot stop saying how blown away we are by out photos and that they are actually ours, and our family and friends were raving at how gorgeous the few photos we were able to see on our wedding day were! During traditional family photos, Vanessa has a great way of giving direction to those in the photos without anyone ever feeling awkward and the candid photos she captured are breathtaking. There are no words to express how HIGHLY we recommend Vanessa Joy Photography to any bride and groom looking for a photographer! She is simply the very best of the best!!

We chose Vanessa before we picked our venue. My cousin and I were both getting married and agreed photography was the most important of all vendors. My cousin did a lot of research, narrowed down to 30 local or willing to fly out photographers. We played a game with her research, she copied and pasted over 100 wedding photos from each of their sites and I was looking at hundreds of random wedding photos in a word document. Three photos REALLY stood out to me. I knew whoever shot these images I would have to decide between to be our photographer. Turns out all three were Vanessa’s shots; we both booked her that same week! I took my mom along the first time I met Vanessa. We were both in awe of her work and who she was as a person. When I saw her prints I secretly thought to myself, “Wow could I really have a beautiful image like this with my husband and I in it?” It seemed unimaginable and we both left BEYOND excited! A lot of artists you meet may have amazing work, but lack of personality. Not only is her work STUNNING, she gives off the best vibes. When you meet people with a good heart who are loving life, everything around them is that much better. Why would you not want someone like that shooting your special day when you are surrounded by everyone you love? Her energy enhances everything! Vanessa will never get in the way, she is a photo-ninja. Turn your head, she’s on a roof for a better angle. There is NOTHING rude about her- even when you have a family member trying to get the best angles & cutting her off, Vanessa makes it work in a pleasant way. She will help you with questions beyond photos for your big day-she has an amazing design eye. Her team is filled with laughter, smiles and are good genuine people. Your husband will enjoy your photo time together (yep) And to me, the best part of booking Vanessa Joy is that you will have someone on your special day who truly sees and appreciates the beauty in everything- but the best part is that she captures it.
