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.

Allison & Aaron :: Engaged & In Love

I met Aaron and Allison for the first time the day Aaron proposed to Allison a few months ago.  Aaron got in contact with me through a mutual friend and I was so impressed by all the thought that he put into his proposal!  Shooting surprise proposals may actually be one of my favorite things to capture.

These two are the absolute sweetest and are so in love with one another that it makes photographing them so easy and natural.  And they even brought along their pup Doak who almost stole the show!  Allison & Aaron, thank you for allowing me to capture the love that you have for one another… I can’t wait for your wedding in the spring!

Below are some of my favorites from our engagement session up at the beautiful Berry College, in Rome, Georgia.  Enjoy!

Alison & Dave :: The Wedding

Alison & Dave tied the knot last weekend on a beautiful fall day!  I couldn’t get over how perfectly the decor that Alison chose for the wedding matched the season.  Alison and Dave have been dating for a while, so this was a long time coming and you could just see how excited everyone was to finally see them get married!

They said their vows under an evening sky and partied the night away with their closest family and friends.

Alison & Dave, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this special day for you both… I hope you two enjoy reliving the day through the photos below!

Anne & Alex :: The Wedding

I’m so excited to share Anne & Alex’s wedding today!  I met Anne about two years ago while shooting Tiffany & Chris’ Wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico!  I was so flattered when we sat down months later for coffee and she told me she knew exactly who she wanted to shoot her wedding once she got engaged.

I feel like time just flies… and can’t believe it’s been over a year since we sat for coffee that day talking about life and wedding planning!  Anne & Alex have dated long distance for years now, so when I saw then seal their vows, it’s hard for me to not get this burst of excitement for these two!  Finally!!!

Anne & Alex, thank you for reminding me that hard work and real love is what makes the best of relationships.  You two are so strong individually, but you’re even stronger together.  Enjoy some of my favorites from the day…

Brittney & David :: The Wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting Brittney and David’s wedding last weekend in Long Beach Island, NJ.  I grew up going to LBI, so it brought back so many memories driving over the bridge onto the island.  The day was gorgeous, light breeze and 75* weather.

Brittney & David’s wedding day was filled with friends, love, a little partying and lots of happy tears!  I absolutely adore their families and how they welcomed me into their homes and lives for one of the most special days of Brittney & David’s life.

To the new Mr. & Mrs. Gutierrez… thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your day.  I had such a blast and hope you enjoy some of my favorites from the day…

Alison & Dave :: Engaged & In Love

Happy Monday!  I’m so excited to finally share this engagement shoot that I shot two weeks ago… September has been the craziest month ever here in the Gordon household but these two make this Monday an awesome one!

I met Alison & Dave through a good friend of mine in New Jersey.  When my friends reach out to ask about shooting their family members weddings, it’s the biggest compliment I can receive!  On the same note, it makes me a little nervous, because I want their photos to be everything that they dream of!

The best part about Alison & Dave is that they don’t take each other too seriously!  You can see in their first shot of the morning… they couldn’t help but to laugh at each other!  Please note… the 2nd shot… killed it.  Just sayin!:)

I’m so excited to shoot Alison & Dave’s wedding in late October, I just love fall weddings!  Until then… enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement shoot…
