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!!

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! With Vanessa and team you don’t have to worry about anything! Don’t hesitate on booking her, you won’t regret it!

Vanessa and her team are amazing. We could not have asked for a better photographer or experience. From taking our engagement pictures to capturing our wedding day, she is truly talented, professional, creative, fun and great to work with. She really captured the magic of our wedding day. During our family and bridal party pictures, she gives directions clearly and made the process really efficient. She is excellent in managing time and worked with us to ensure we got all the pictures we wanted. The best surprise was receiving a little book of some of our pictures at the end of our wedding night - it was great and really let us get excited about seeing the rest of her work. We would highly recommend her.

An overall great experience! I went to have professional headshots done and Vanessa was a pleasure to work with! The process was so quick and by the time I got home my headshot had been retouched and sent to me. I will definitely be sending anyone in need of a photographer her way.

Vanessa and her team were absolutely incredible. I’m so happy we went with her for our wedding day. Given our experience with her on our foggy day engagement shoot, I knew that despite whatever weather was thrown our way, our pictures would still come out incredible and it would be one less thing to worry about. Needless to say, our wedding day (and first look) started out with rain and the pictures came out so dreamy despite the weather.

I have to say though, Vanessa really went above and beyond in every aspect leading up to our wedding day as well as the actual day itself. She has this sureness about her that gives you a calming confidence that you know the job will be done and it will be done beautifully. She is very experienced and it shows. Photography aside, on the day of the wedding Vanessa stepped outside of her job description and helped run our day of timeline when we were in need. With her help we were able to get all the pictures we wanted and even arrived to our ceremony 20 minutes early, despite the fact that we shot at multiple locations with an 18 person bridal party. She is very professional and well versed in all things wedding/bridal and it showed. When my family and bridesmaids couldn’t find the last bustle in my dress she quickly came over and found it in a few short seconds. It’s the little things that she did that really helped the day go off without a hitch.
I highly recommended Vanessa and her team - she produces incredible results and even gives you an adorable sneak peak of the photos the night of the wedding, someone you definitely want to have on your team for your big day!

Vanessa and her team were a pleasure to work with to capture not only our small micro wedding in 2020, but also our full wedding in 2021. From the beginning when you decide to work with her, she and her team are very responsive and answer any and all questions you may have. They were always professional and friendly which made it a smooth process leading up to the wedding day and then on the day of. They are prompt showing up on time and get straight to work to capture every small detail of your day. Vanessa guides you throughout the day showing you the best poses and best locations to capture the perfect pictures. The quality of pictures were exactly what we were looking to capture for our wedding day. The package we choose included thank you cards and an album and Vanessa and her team were there every step of the way to help you choose the best pictures and layout of both. I highly recommend booking Vanessa and her team to capture your special occasion. Thanks Vanessa!

I would highly recommend Vanessa. I can’t imagine a better photographer. We are thrilled with her work!

Vanessa and her team were the photographers at my September 2021 rehearsal dinner and wedding at Glenmere Mansion in NY. We booked Vanessa about a year in advance on recommendation from our wedding planner. There were a lot of fun touches she did leading up to the wedding day that made us feel like we made the right choice – from a cutting board with my new last name on it to a polaroid camera she sent to us at our home in Colorado, she made us feel very confident in our decision.

My now husband and I were sure we were going to feel uncomfortable doing all of the romantic, looking-into-one-anothers-eyes photos, but Vanessa made us feel so at ease. Her direction was efficient and straightforward, making it easy to follow. Many members of our wedding party and family marveled over how quick and painless she made the whole process. My 90 year old grandfather, who has rarely had a professional photograph taken and wasn’t thrilled at the prospect, kept talking afterwards about how great she was. Vanessa made sure to get a list of “must-have” photos ahead of time and got them all done very quickly, with beautiful results.

We anticipated having to wait a few weeks to get even a preview of the photos from the wedding, but when we got back to our room the night of and checked my phone, she had already sent 50+ BEAUTIFUL photos. I’m not sure how she got that done so quickly, but the images were stunning. She is very artistic, so beyond just the typical shots you see for weddings, she took some very, very cool images that played with light and color and looked like they came out of Vogue.

Another note  - we had a black tie wedding, and I really appreciated that Vanessa showed up looking so great. She really blended in with the crowd.

Vanessa made my wedding feel so unique and precious with the way she styled her photographs. She made sure all my needs were met and the few requests I had were overwhelmingly done beyond perfection. I was more than happy with her style and technique of placement for her photography, and If I were to ever have another special event as memorable as my wedding, I will most definitely choose her as my photographer.
Thank you Vanessa! I cannot wait to see the outcome. We (Husband and I) thank you graciously. And lastly, apologies again, for our little monkey causing so much chaos. We greatly appreciated your patience with him, and ability to still take beautiful photos. It truly shows your capabilities and professionalism with certain situations. But I wouldn't mind having one special photobomb of him. Lol. Thank you again, Xoxo, Mr. & Mrs. Torres.

Love her teaching and shooting style. Passion and purpose wrapped into one package. I think I've learned more quickly and easily with her tutorials than most others I've watched. Thanks Vanessa. From one Mom to another.

From start to finish, Vanessa was just a joy to work with! She made us feel comfortable from our initial call, to our engagement session, to our wedding day. We were blown away with not only her talent (and she's incredibly talented!) and professionalism, but by how thoughtful she was - we received a beautiful cheeseboard with our name engraved when we booked our wedding with her, and then received a camera right before our wedding with the sweetest note.
