Thank you for stopping by to check out Joy Coakley Weddings!

I graduated with a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University and have been working in the commercial photography world ever since, as both a photographer and a stylist. My experience, ranging from photography, photo styling, floral design, event design, event production, and now motherhood, have all prepared me to approach shooting weddings and portraiture with great excitement and confidence. It’s the perfect harmony for me.

And let’s face it, you just can’t have a bad time capturing some of the most joyous occasions for people! I love to have fun. I love all things beautiful and meaningful. I often get teary-eyed during speeches. I honor ritual, amazingly unique for every couple. I feel grateful to be welcomed into people’s lives for such personal experiences. I love to dance and sing.  I LOVE the idea that telling your story through my eyes will be treasured by you and your loved ones for generations to come. I love LOVE. 

I approach every shooting situation with a wide range of ability and flexibility that is naturally tailored to each client, with a taste of photojournalism, lifestyle, and fine art.

Thank you to all of my amazing clients and subjects who always become lifelong friends. I will forever be grateful for you opening up your world to me!
