“Analisa was on maternity leave when we were meeting with vendors, so we took a leap of faith in hiring her without having a sit down meeting. We even made sure she was available before signing any venue contracts tying us to a date. Within the first five minutes of our engagement shoot, we fell for her energy and natural charm. My husband and I couldn’t stop talking about how much fun she was and how comfortable we felt in front of her camera. When we received our engagement photos we were in awe. They were even more beautiful than we could have imagined. I immediately ordered prints of my favorites to showcase all over our reception, and they were a hit! When you book with Analisa you are getting so much more than just a photographer. She helped us in the months leading up to our wedding. With a destination wedding I was planning myself, she assured the day ran smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be and when. I couldn’t have done it without her! She climbed on rocks, cars, and even rolled up her pants to trek knee deep into the lake to snap the perfect photo. How above and beyond is that? We received our wedding photos (weeks earlier than expected!) and are still swooning over them. She captured the love and intimacy of our wedding day more beautifully than we could have asked for. Thank you Analisa for allowing us to relive our perfect day over and over again. We have found our lifelong photographer!”

“When I sat down to plan my wedding, having the best photographer was the number one, most important thing on my list. Everyone always says, “your wedding day will fly by.” So I wanted to make sure I had the very best pictures to help make the memories last. I knew I had to have Analisa. I booked her immediately and started counting down the days till our engagement session. My fiancé and I just had our engagement session with Analisa and I already can’t wait to spend my wedding day with her! Analisa made me feel so confident throughout our entire session. She was even able to bring my reserved fiancé out of his shell. We left wanting to hang out with her everyday! She has a true gift when it comes to photography. Analisa’s photos always capture the best angles, light and color. Her ability to connect with her clients is right up there with her photography Jedi magic, making her the only choice to capture all those special moments in life. Thank you Analisa! We are so blessed to have you there for our special day!”

“I have been following Analisa’s photography since college. I remember showing my husband (then boyfriend) her photos and telling him that one day she would photograph my wedding. The DAY after he proposed I contacted Analisa for her availability the next year, and literally chose our wedding date around her openings. She is absolutely incredible to work with and makes the entire process fun and effortless! She has an amazing gift for making people comfortable, and her warm heart is enough to make anyone one smile. Going with her is the best decision we could have made!!!”

“At the age of 28 you find yourself in a lot of weddings and attending even more. Through my experiences Analisa is hands down the best photographer I have ever experienced. We used her for our engagement photos where I made, save the dates, bridal shower invites, Christmas gifts and a guest book where the images left people speechless. We also blew up portraits on canvas to decorate our wedding venue and guests were blown away.

We had a bridal party of 20. She did such a fabulous job at keeping everyone organized and on schedule. We had multiple friends and family members look at us and say “Wow, she’s good”. I know :)

One of my favorite things about her, is her attention to detail. By telling me to bend my knee or for my husband to put his thumb in his pocket while running into the frame to fix a hair that has gone astray. Her style is soft, romantic and timeless; in perfect harmony with my wedding theme. The first “sneak peek” photo she posted of my wedding day left me in tears because it was so beautiful and perfect. She captured our wedding day and I know I’ll be contacting her again for maternity photos and family portraits to come.”

“Analisa is the BEST! There is nothing more to say than that. From the beginning at our first meeting in Panera you would have thought that we had all been friends for years. It was the best vendor meeting I had in the entire experience because Analisa is just so lively and has the best personality. Our engagement session at Lake Arrowhead was so much fun. The amount of laughing that went on probably scared all the wild life away. And then the day of could have not been any better. Its not joke how many pictures you take the day of your wedding but between Analisa and Lindsee it could have not gone any smoother nor could it have been any more fun than it was. She is amazing and you will not regret booking her for any of your picture needs. Like I said….She is the BEST!”

“Analisa is not only an amazing photographer but she is the most amazing person. I have not met someone so sweet and genuine. She makes you feel so comfortable and confident throughout the whole process.

Her work speaks for itself. She photographed our wedding this past weekend and our engagement pictures last August. Our beach engagement photos came out stunning. She knew exactly how to work with the light and where to place us. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera.

She was so attentive during the whole wedding and I am sure she captured the best pictures. She kept track of the time and kept me right on schedule. She went above and beyond and exceeded all of my expectations.

When you pick Analisa to capture your big day, you not only get  stunning photos but also a great friend.”

“If I could give an even higher star rating than 5/5 for Analisa and Analisa Joy Photography, I would! She is just hands-down the BEST and so amazing to work with. From the very beginning, we knew we had made the right choice for our wedding photographer. We used Analisa for our engagement pictures, and instantly fell in love with her photography, personality, and skill. Leading up to the wedding, Analisa was so sweet and amazing to work with and made sure we had everything down and ready to go by the big day. When the day came, the room lit up when Analisa entered. It was like she was one of our long lost friends! We had so much fun working with her and having her take our pictures. Everything felt so comfortable and natural. When we got our pictures, we were ever HAPPIER we had chosen Analisa. She has a legitimate God-given talent and was able to give us the most perfect wedding photos. Thank you Analisa!”

“Wow where do I start with Analisa. Analisa and her sidekick the day of my wedding were truly amazing! I felt like I knew Analisa. Her and Lindsey made sure my husband and I were so comfortable. Those two girls are a fantastic duo they were funny, outgoing, and made us feel like family. This was exactly what I wanted on my wedding day, just by the previews that Analisa has showed us on social media I have already fell in love with my wedding pictures! Thank you so much Analisa for your great personality I will forever keep you as our lifelong photographer we love you!!! Can’t wait to see the rest of our pictures!!”

“Analisa is an absolute JOY to work with ;) my fiancé and I were super nervous to do our engagement session because we are not comfortable in front of a camera. Analisa took charge and started asking us questions about our big day and without knowing it we were taking pictures like pros! I loved that she actually directed us and instead of saying “look romantic” she posed us, fixed my hair, straightened his shirt and made us feel natural in front of a camera. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer, I walked away feeling beautiful and confident. We love her!!!”

“I’ve been wanting to work with Analisa since I first saw her work over 2 years ago. When my fiance and I finally got engaged last year, she was the FIRST email I sent when it came to planning our wedding.
Yesterday we had our engagement shoot and although our original location got rained out, Analisa gave me several different options and the place we chose together was a DREAM. (Honestly, it was probably better than our original location.)
My fiance is a little shy and was nervous about having his photo taken and within the first five minutes Analisa made him feel comfortable and had him laughing! The two of them became fast friends. He was even talking about our “next shoot” with her before we were even done!

Analisa is beyond sweet and so professional. She kept us moving and laughing so we never felt awkward or stiff.
We had the BEST experience with her and can NOT wait for our wedding next June!
Not only will our pictures be amazing, but she is truly a JOY to be around and is going to be the perfect addition for our big day.
Afterwards at dinner my Fiance and I were gushing about how much fun we had and all kinds of different ideas for shoots we could do with her after the wedding and beyond. We have definitely found our life-long photographer. ”

I wish I could give this review more than 5 stars because she deserves 10!
I will recommend Analisa Joy Photography to all of my friends and family. If you’re reading this and looking for a photographer, quit your search, she’s the one!”

“What is there to say about Analisa that hasn’t already been said?! We are so grateful to have had Analisa Joy Photography as our photographer for our wedding at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in March 2016.

From the beginning, Analisa was available, attentive, and sweet as ever. She met with us at our venue so that we could look around and discuss different scheduling options. I was so relieved when she didn’t pressure us to do a First Look, because I know that it is much more convenient for the photography schedule. Instead, Analisa listened to our vision and was able to create a photography schedule that incorporated everything we wanted (including no first look.)

On our wedding day, Analisa’s team arrived promptly and immediately got to work capturing special moments. There wasn’t a single moment missed, and we can’t express how much our photos mean to us, as well as our friends and family.

We received our photos and discs very quickly after the wedding, and I LOVE being able to print the photos myself without copyright issues.

After our wedding, an aunt expressed to me that she “didn’t even remember seeing a photographer.” That’s how amazing Analisa is! Her team is able to capture every moment without disrupting the flow and authenticity of the wedding day. Her talent is rare.

I can’t wait to work with Analisa again in the future! HIRE HER!”

“I could probably write a novel about Analisa, but I will try and keep it short. :) I cheered with analisa in high school, and she was always a joy to be around. She always brightened up your day and put a smile on your face. You always felt loved around her. When she started becoming successful in photography, I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding. When I got engaged, she was one of the first people I texted to make sure she was open the day of our wedding, August 13, 2016.

Our wedding day was PERFECT. Mike and I were so grateful to not only have Analisa as our photographer, but have Trent (Analisa’s husband) as her assistant. These two made me and mike feel so loved and comfortable around the camera. It was such a joy having them photograph our wedding, and I know the pictures will be absolutely perfect.

Analisa Joy Photography is the best photographer out there. She is truly a joy to be around and is so very talented at what she does. You can also tell that she has a passion for photography and loves to make people feel comfortable around the camera.

We are so grateful she  and trent photographed our wedding! I highly recommend her!! She is the absolute BEST PHOTOGRAPHER!!”

“I knew I wanted Analisa to photograph our wedding before I was even engaged! I didn’t even consider anyone else because her photos are not only crisp and beautiful but so full of life! Her talent is obvious and on top of that she is an amazingly kind, professional and caring person. My husband and I aren’t very comfortable in front of the camera and I was worried that our awkwardness would show in the photos but Analisa and Cheslea made it fun, helped us relax and directed us to different poses and locations. They made it so easy! I am in LOVE with all our photos and would recommend her hands down without a doubt to anyone! Thank you for capturing the best day of our lives and giving us a lifetime of memories!!”
