Reviews Shared With Gratitude

"I am so glad to have Joi as my wedding photographer, she is friendly, easy to communicate and always responds fast. On my wedding day, Joi came 15 minutes earlier to check the best spot for taking photos. I usually feel awkward in front of camera, but not this time. I love all my wedding photos, if I need a photographer in the future, I will pick her again. Highly recommended!"

-D. Y., Wedding and Event Photography

"Joi, was a pleasure to work with, from the moment we started she put me at ease and worked her magic throughout the whole session. The quality of her work was excellent and her manner made the entire experience relaxing and enjoyable. She is responsive and sensitive to the needs of her client and we had a wonderful and productive session. She is a creative professional who has a gift for bringing out the best in her subject. I recommend her highly to anyone looking for the best photographer well worth her fee."

"It was a pleasure working with Joi! I appreciated her responsiveness, professionalism, and obviously her photography skills. She really listens to what her client is asking for, which is important because each client and each photo session is different. She also had some great ideas regarding backdrops and location for the photo session. Last but not the least, I appreciated her flexibility and on-time delivery of the photographs. Highly recommend!"

"It was a pleasure to work with Joi for my work headshots. She promptly answered my inquiries and was extremely responsive and timely in getting me the finished product. During the shoot, she communicated well and made sure that we were getting images that I liked. I definitely recommend her and would use her again in the future."

-N.W., Corporate Headshot Photography

"Joi and Michael were photographers at my wedding and I'd highly recommend them to everyone. Communication with Joi before event was super easy, she quickly responded to my emails and phone calls with no delay. Also they traveled from San Leandro to Sacramento for my wedding. They were there on time, even before us :) Very knowledgeable, professional, reliable, patient, easy to cooperate. They were giving us suggestions the whole time so we could just relax and let them do their job. Once again, they make great team and I'm sure you'll love their work."

-S.D., Wedding Photography


Just like everything in life, communication is key for the success of any project or relationship. I serve as a receptive and communicative guide for all my clients every step of the way. Let me walk you through my process:

1. We touch base with a complimentary call 

(It's free y'all, just take it)

We get to know each other and I get to visualize what you want. 

Ready to hire me? We can set a date, time, and location for our photoshoot as well.

Need a make-up artist, hair stylist, and stylist? I have a team of amazing artists that can help you look your best on during your photo session.

2. E-mail and Contract

Right after our chat, I e-mail you notes from our call which include the perfect photo package catered to your needs. I will also send you a contract outlining what you receive, payment terms, and expected delivery date for retouched images.

3. Photo session

We meet and have fun! I always create a comfortable space for my clients to be themselves: to laugh if they want to laugh, to talk if they want to talk. Moreover, I help direct my clients during the photo shoot — so don't worry if this is your first photo shoot ever, I got you!

4. Picking Your Photos

Yes, you get to pick your own photos! I like to empower my clients with their own perception and choices. A photo shoot is a collaboration, after all.

The day after the photo shoot, I send you a contact sheet showing small icons of all the images we took during our photo session. This way, you can let me know what images you want retouched. I can also select for you if you need help because trust me, you'll have a lot of great photos to pick from (:
