It was very easy to set up our photo session. Joi took many pictures of our family at different areas at the beach. She sent the contact sheet that night. Over the next few days, Joi responded to my requests to send various photos as jpegs so that I could see them more clearly promptly. In the end she sent various cropped versions and sizes of my favorite poses for my selection. She even swapped heads on two photos so that I had the perfect smile on each family member.Nov 7, 2017Verified
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!Jan 26, 2018Verified
Good communication, good personality, good photos, timely responses and delivery... What else can one ask for?!Nov 23, 2017Verified
Very sweet lady and an amazing photographer. We hired her to do some solo and couple shots. Loved her work. Detailed and exceptional. In future will surely look to work and hire her again. She is extremely professional and I will surely recommend her. You won't be disappointed. 😊😊Aug 19, 2017Verified
Joi was wonderful to work with. She was accommodating with our tight schedule and worked with our large group for headshots. She helps make it really comfortable to get your picture taken and got some great photos. We had a great experience with her- would recommend.Nov 1, 2019Verified
