Audra and I met during our time at JMU (go Dukes!). I was in the beginning stages of my photography career and Audra needed a headshot for her modeling and acting career. Since I was an eager newbie, I said yes, of course. We went our separate ways after graduation, but never lost touch! Audra […]
Welcome to your Hannah Joy Photography 2021 end-of-the-year wrap up as we showcase some of the best Virginia wedding photos, in our opinion! It has been one heck of a year. Here is a look back on some of our favorite moments. SPRING Samantha + Anthony – Maternity Session at the JMU Arboretum Our Engagement […]
You aren’t seeing double – this Virginia winery engagement session features Lauren and Ben, the two UVA sweethearts who won our engagement session giveaway last year! Their first session was at Swannanoa Palace in Afton on a beautiful early summer day. They also wanted some some classic Virginia winery engagement photos at their wedding venue. […]
This blog post of our top Shenandoah Valley engagement photo session spots has been a long time in the making! Since this is our seventh wedding season, we have photographed weddings and engagements all over Virginia. We have some many favorite spots – and so many other spots we want to shoot at! Below is […]
Part Two is here! Late summer and fall seasons did not look the same, although we managed to stay pretty busy. We had senior portraits, engagement sessions and plenty of weddings, both small and medium-sized. We managed to contract Covid (even though we were SO careful!!) but were able to quarantine and not infect anyone. […]
This year…whew. It kicked my ass. Actually, I think it kicked everyone’s ass! Instead of doing the traditional “Best of” blog series we do every year, I wanted to take a more comprehensive, chronological look back on 2020. It was a whirlwind and I want to take you all along for the ride. Before I […]
Anna + Brian met up with us for their sunset fall engagement photo shoot at Ravens Roost Overlook off the Blue Ridge Parkway in early October.
Megan + Dan chose to have their engagement session in the late fall on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Ravens Roost Overlook was showing off for them!
We had the pleasure of working with Hannah and Anthony for our engagement shoot in Charlottesville, VA. Not only did she know the best spots for photos around the area but she timed it out perfectly so the sun was setting when we arrived to Raven's Roost, which made for stunning photographs! She also helped us include our new puppy in the session, which made for some adorable photos.
Hannah is an absolutely phenomenal person to work with! She and her second shooter (her partner, Anthony), were so fun while being a calming presence on our wedding day!
Hannah does amazing work and is an incredible value as a wedding vendor. You cannot go wrong picking Hannah to work with you on your wedding!
We loved having our engagement photos taken by Hannah and Anthony!! Hannah was very easy to work with and accommodated all of my requests! The photos she took were absolutely amazing and I could not be happier with them!!
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 can't recommend working with Hannah enough. We booked her for our wedding and engagement shoots, and were so impressed with the quality and the look of the photos.
Our photos are gorgeous and we will treasure them forever!
My fiance had Hannah photograph his proposal, which was a total surprise for me. Hannah was awesome, and caught the moment perfectly! We then took engagement pictures, and
She gave us the pictures very quickly, and there were so many. We 100% recommend Hannah.
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!
