Amanda Joy Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to THE BLOG... A place where I post new work, talk about life, and all things in between.

    I'm Amanda Joy, Owner and Lead Photographer of amanda joy Photography serving both New Jersey and Atlanta. Wedding and portrait photography are my forte. I just can't get enough of it!

    This thing called photography is more than a job to me... it's one of my many reasons for waking up, my inspiration, my creative outlet, my passion.

Christina & Kevin :: The Wedding

I’m so excited to share Christina & Kevin’s wedding with y’all!  I met them back in the fall of 2016 for our sunrise engagement shoot… it was the most glowy morning in a beautiful field location here in Alpharetta… it was the perfect morning to get to know this sweet couple.  I walked away from our engagement shoot with two feelings… Christina really loves Kevin… and Kevin absolutely adores Christina.

Needless to say I was super excited for their wedding day… Christina & Kevin had the sweetest fall wedding.  This was my first time shooting at Flint Hill and what a dream… so many quaint little nooks and beautiful grounds.  When I first spoke with Christina and Kevin, they weren’t sure about having a First Look… I explained this in my opinion was the most intimate part of the day.  I was so happy to hear they were open to it and decided on it for their special day!  The portrait session with the Bride and Groom are my favorite to look back on and I absolutely loved reliving their day.

Here’s a few favorites!

Allison & Aaron :: The Wedding

Some of you may remember Allison & Aaron… I had the pleasure of shooting a few big milestones in their relationship… Aaron’s surprise proposal at Big Canoe, their engagement at Mt. Berry College Campus and now their wedding!  When Aaron first reached out to find a photographer for his proposal, to be honest… I got so excited that a man was making all these sweet plans, that I just couldn’t help but to want to be a part of it.  If anything, I was just excited to be in the presence of such an amazing moment and was even more honored to be chosen to capture some memories for these two.

What at the time seemed to have been just a proposal, turned into documentary of Allison & Aaron’s love story… I traveled down to Tallahassee, Florida for their stunning Southwood Plantation Wedding.  Allison & Aaron’s wedding day was one for the books… they had gorgeous weather, a perfect venue and an unforgettable evening with their closest family and friends.

Enjoy some of my favorites from their day!

Jodi & Chase :: The Wedding

This is such a special post today for me as Jodi is part of my family and I was so humbled to be asked to be even a small part of her and Chase’s wedding.

The entire day I couldn’t help myself but to feel so honored to capture Jodi & Chase’s Wedding day and I couldn’t have imagined it any different.  God literally opened the skies and poured down rain all the way until their ceremony and reception when the sky cleared and we got to capture some beautiful moments with the fall trees and family outside!  Here’s just a few of my favorites from their day…

Terri & Mike :: The Wedding

I’m so excited to share Terri & Mike’s wedding from last weekend.  I’ve known Terri for years and was so happy to be a part of her and Mike’s wedding day.  It was the perfect fall day, with all their family and friends surrounding them… they tied the knot at sunset at the Meadow Wood Manor and then partied the rest of the night away.  Enjoy just a few of my favorites from the day!
