Joy is such a pleasure to work with! She has photographed everything from a wedding celebration, senior portraits, and modeling photos for my daughter. Her work is beautiful and her energy boundless! It is so nice to have a photographer who quietly immerses herself in the project she's on to really portray the moment. I would strongly recommend Joy!

Morrain Starr, Wedding Client

After seeing Joy's work on her website, my husband and were almost positive we wanted her to capture our wedding. And after meeting with her, there was no question of whether or not we wanted to look further for a photographer. Not only was her work amazing, she was also incredibly welcoming, professional, and comfortable to be around, which I now know is incredibly important for a photographer. I've never felt so comfortable in front of a camera. It was easy to forget we were having our pictures taken because she would just add to our body language and easily capture natural movements and moments rather than just trying to pose us. Also, she was clearly passionate about her work and was incredibly creative and flexible to any of our ideas as well. This resulted in incredibly beautiful and equally unique photographs, both for our wedding and engagement photos. She treated her work as the art that it is and really went above and beyond expectations. She took amazing family portraits as well as perfect candid shots of our families and guests. There are perfect pictures of everyone who was at our wedding. Plus, she was able to catch everyones unique personalities as if she knew them. My husband and I-and our families-could not be happier that we picked Strotz photography; every moment with Joy was incredibly fun and she captured each moment more perfectly than we could have ever imagined. Seriously. Her work and presence is too amazing for words <3 Here is a link to our wedding photos, in case you're curious: http://www.strotzphotography.com/Weddings/Morrain-Slava-Wedding-Highligh And here is a link to our engagement photos as well: http://www.strotzphotography.com/Events/Weddings/Morrain-Slava/Engagement-Session

Joy's photos are stunning and she is wonderful to work with. You can tell that she is passionate about her work by the quality of her photographs and by her excitement leading up to and at the wedding.
