HEY THERE, I'M JOY! (SHE/HER)
I am a full time wedding, elopement, couples, and portrait photographer based in San Diego, California. Other than the awe-inspiring sunsets and amazing weather, San Diego constantly inspires me with its people. For the past five years, I've photographed people from all over America — many traveling to San Diego just for a weekend and I've also flown across the country from Washington to New York to document weddings.
As your photographer, I am excited to be your #1 hype woman because I want to ensure that you feel confident and at your best. To create fun memorable experiences, on shoot I like to put on one of your nostalgic playlists, reminisce about love stories, crack jokes, or have deep talks.
If I were to describe myself in a nutshell, I am an ENFJ on the Meyers-Briggs and a 4w3 on the enneagram. This basically means that I am an organized, goal-oriented, deep-feeling, people person. I am passionate about social justice and the intersections of faith, ethnicity, and LGBTQ+ identities because I am a proud queer Taiwanese-American woman of faith. I like to curl up in coffee shops late at night to edit photos, read and journal. I could talk forever about sunsets, tacos, indie music, spirituality & diversity.
I'd love to get to know you more and hear what memories you want to cherish with photographs. Let's connect!
