we believe love is love, and that the wedding is just the beginning of a long and fulfilling marriage.
Hello! We are Hannah and Anthony, the two-person team behind the lens at Hannah Joy Photography. Together, we have photographed over 100 weddings all over the East Coast - and we still get butterflies before each one! I (Hannah), often hear other photographers talking about how they truly love their job, and there just are no other words for it - I love what I do! Anthony and I live in a cute little home in Waynesboro, VA with three animals, Theo the Husky, Wilson, the (fat) black cat and Mizuna, the (tiny) polydactyl cat.

Hannah did an amazing job with my wedding photos! She is easy to contact and got back to us in record time, every time. She was professional, but still made the entire process fun! She coordinated the first look pictures beautifully. She gave great direction to everyone in each picture so they knew exactly what she was looking for and gave time for us to be ourselves as well. She got us through the family portraits in great time (which was important to me), but I didn't feel rushed and they look amazing! The bride and groom session was so much fun as well. I didn't anticipate enjoying that portion of the wedding as much as I did, and it is truly thanks to Hannah. She was even willing to do another session with us later in the wedding on the beach which was exactly what I wanted.
Hannah and her second-shooter, Anthony, shot my wedding photos and did an amazing job! They perfectly captured the feel and energy we were going for and I could not have asked for a better experience.
They were so friendly and easy to work with and made us both feel comfortable even though we're not natural photo-takers. I would definitely recommend!
I hired Hannah as my wedding photographer in 2016, almost 2 years in advanced, for my Sept 2018 wedding and when my husband and I finally got to meet Hannah for our engagement photo session in Sept 2017, we knew instantly that we wouldn't have wanted anyone else for this job. She matched our personality's perfectly and we knew that she was going to make our BIG day even more enjoyable.
I knew she had it handled. We could not be happier with Hannah, her fantastic second shooter and the third shooter she brought to help with her for the day since she was injured. We received TONS of pictures and there is not one that we did not like. If I could have Hannah to photograph every big event for the rest of my life, I would without a doubt!
