Today’s Wedding Wednesday features Keepsake print boxes: A tangible way to relive your memories.Keepsake Print Boxes are the most recent addition to my print product offerings and are a beautiful alternative or compliment to a traditional album. One thing I really love about these boxes is the ability to spread your images out around you and experience the memories of your day in a different way. They’re also super compact and travel friendly which is great for sharing your wedding day with friends or storing right on your coffee table.
WELCOMEHi there. Thank you for stopping by. Welcome to the Joy Michelle Photography Blog! I am a wedding & portrait photographer living in Maryland available for travel. I love to create and curate all things colorful, meaningful, and in the moment. Photography is my medium of choice, both film and digital. I have a formal background in graphic design and I love being able to use those skills when I design album layout. This blog is a combination of real shoots, thoughts on photography, and inspirations. I can be reached at : email@example.com
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING?
follow Joy on INSTAGRAMA year ago today! 🎉 Gosh time flies. Cheers to 1 year, guys! Tonight I’ll be heading right back here to Annapolis to document an engagement session for a Joy Michelle couple getting married next month. 💕 Annapolis never gets old. Fingers crossed for a sunset like this! 😍It all started when I was planning my own wedding. Picture this: 2012. Blush and gold everything. Back when I had a nose ring. 😂⠀ That’s when I got a closer look at the whole wedding photographer thing and I was hooked!! Until then, I thought to be a professional photographer you had to work for JC Penny or National Geographic.⠀ 🤷🏼♀️⠀ Realizing that I could document love stories for a living was pretty groundbreaking. I decided quickly that it was what I wanted to do with my life. It’s been 5 years now (since I got the papers in the mail making it official) and it’s hard to imagine doing anything else. ⠀ 🎉⠀ Happy 5 years to JMP! I can’t help but smile imagining where the next 5 years will take me.Sparkling gold Jimmy Choos to walk down the aisle in ✨⠀ @jimmychoo 📷 Swipe for the behind the scenes set up of the same lighting situation to get this shot. Window light to the right, reflector to my left 🙌🏼 thanks for the help @katiebehindthelensWhen my brides wear cathedral veils I just have to get that sweeping veil shot!! 📷⠀ I love a good behind the scenes pic! Thanks @hannahjphotos for taking this during Danielle and Will’s Annapolis portrait time!As guests showed up to Jen & Greg’s waterfront wedding ceremony they were handed a chilled glass of champagne 🥂I think every event should start this way 😉⠀ Planning + Design @hostandtoastevents ⠀ Flowers @edgefloraleventdesigners Rentals @partyrentalltd Paper @thirdcloverpaper Antiques @bellavillashop Signs @brightlyeverafter Cake @catherinegeorgecakesI’ve been feeling like this summer is flying by! I looked up and June was coming to a close 😫 Anyone else feeling the same way??⠀ ⠀ ☀️⠀ Today I’m heading to the beach with my family to really slowwwwww down, put my phone down(!!!), and soak in some summer. ⠀ ⠀ 🦀⠀ It’s time to pick blue crabs + go boating on the Delaware shore. ⠀ ⠀ ✌🏼This mirror-top head table was incredible! The whole space just glowed. ✨ And all those gold accents like the bride and groom acrylic dye cuts? 😍 just wow!

Wouldn’t mind cruising in this beaut this weekend, would you? 🤗⠀ @bentleymotors @hostandtoastevents @edgefloraleventdesignersBack on Instagram after an unintentional 3 week break. 🤷🏼♀️ Time got away from me. I’m choosing to give myself grace about that! The summer is officially rolling and I have been photographing some of the coolest weddings! 💕 The blog is updated for the first time in ages with new work and even a post for my fellow photographers 😊 oh and photographers — I’m working on something epic for you guys 😬 so be sure that you’re in my #photoboss fb group for the announcement soon!
