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
