Diana & Mo are that kind of couple you can’t help but love!  More than just being INCREDIBLY adorable, these two have that kind of love that just radiates around them, and made me smile all day as we tromped around Orange County for their Laguna Beach engagement session.  This shoot was a beautiful reminder for me, in such a crazy busy time, of how much I love what I do!! What a privilege to be allowed to document so many different love stories.  This one is definitely going to have a “happily ever after” ending for sure!!  Thanks Diana & Mo for such a fun day…I am positive your Spanish Hills Country Club wedding is going to be absolutely amazing!!  






only with petite little Diana could we get a shot like this!!





one of my favorite shots of the day...this is true happiness!!





we'll just keep this our little secret

For those of you who don’t believe in fate, meet Tracy & Pathik!  I had already mentioned from their Santa Barbara engagement session that these two met on an airplane, while sitting next to each other.  But come to find out it gets better! During the reception toasts, a friend of Tracy’s said she was planning to set Tracy up with a business colleague of hers, only to discover that Tracy was already dating who she had in mind, Pathik!  I just love that!!  The best thing about the whole thing is these two incredible people are just perfect together! Tracy & Pathik had a beautiful Hindu wedding ceremony at the GORGEOUS Montecito Country Club, overlooking the Pacific in lovely Santa Barbara.  It was a day rich in culture, tradition and lots of love to go around. Congratulations, Tracy & Pathik, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of such an AMAZING day!




Tracy & Pathik decided to do their pictures before the ceremony (love that!), and this is their first moment together.







the beautiful & elegant Tracy!

  • San Francisco Newborn Photography by Joy Marie Photography | Joy Marie Photography | Destination Wedding Photographers - […] their first furry “child,” Nikko.  That summer, Tracy & Pathik had a BEAUTIFUL Santa Barbara Indian wedding at the Montecito Country Club. Last month, I flew up to San Francisco to document this precious […]

I know I say this so much, but I really had such a great time shooting Courtney & Andrew’s engagement session.  These two are such incredible free spirits, with fabulous style and an amazing love & connection to one another. I should also mention that Courtney & Andrew are both AMAZING musicians, and I met them last summer at another Malibu wedding where they were performing and I was shooting. I am so looking forward to their Malibu wedding this summer at the gorgeous Adamson House!  


we snuck in a few shots after dinner in Venice...just love!






love Courtney's vintage dress!








Nothing melts my heart more than watching my boys with their dad.  It is such a gift to have a husband who devotes so much of himself to his children.  He is an incredible example to them of what it means to be a husband, a father and a man.  I am blessed.  Happy Father’s Day, David…I love you!!  





  • Phil Thornton - Haha, these are great. Flowers in the hair have never looked more manly. :)

  • Maggie - simply beautiful men.

  • Latrice of Bridal Opulence - Love these photos & how you captured their personality!

  • Jillian Bisinger - Joy, I love seeing pictures of your boys!!!! What a gorgeous family you’ve been blessed with. And that David…seams like he’s got it all! See you soon (:

  • Jason - Great pictures! What a happy and beautiful family!

  • Sarah - Your work never ceases to amaze me. You are extremely talented and have the best clients! That dress is an absolute DREAM:)

I was so thrilled to hear that one of my favoritest couples from last year is having a baby!!  You may remember Danielle & Colin from their INCREDIBLE 2008 Dana Point wedding and  Orange County engagement session.  They once again rocked my socks off, and Danielle worked that baby bump!  I’m so excited to meet little Ms. Logan…stay tuned for her newborn debut!!


while we were shooting these, Colin was saying, "you are SOOOO beautiful!" Just LOVE these two!!!


they just happened to have a 100 yr old barber shop chair in their kind of maternity prop!



How beautiful is Danielle?!?
