About

Photography should be honest and beautiful. My style of photography is documentary and artistic. I love epic compositions, luscious colors and emotional images. I might ask you to move towards natural light or direct your poses to look more relaxed, but in no way do I believe in faking moments for the picture. You are here to capture the essence of who you are and that is what makes pictures beautiful!

  • My parents named me Asia Joy because I was born in Thailand to a missionary family who's mission was to show God's love to South East Asia. I am an observer and an optimist. I have an obsession with getting to know people and hearing their stories, and I would love to be a part of yours. When intimate moments with people and artistic expression converge in a space called photography- that is my happy place.

  • I think it's just as important for you to find a photographer who fits your personality. Style and skill set aside, you're hiring a complete stranger to join in on one of the most memorable and intimate days in your life. You want to know that you'll mesh with them. That your personalities click and that they'll make you feel comfortable. If it works out for us to work together, I can't wait to meet you. I hope we're the perfect match. But until then, here are a few things you should know about me!

dagnyAs a bride-to-be working with vendors can be a stressful or enjoyable endeavor.  Asia was amazing to work with from start to finish and never once added to the stress of the day!  We met Asia a few months before our wedding to take some engagement shots.  She was creative and open to suggestions, but also willing to give direction if needed.  As a camera shy person I was worried I wouldn't like being in so many pictures, but Asia helped make the whole process easy and enjoyable.

When my husband and I talk about our wedding day, we like to say that we wouldn't change a single thing. A huge part of being able to say that was working with Photobyjoy. They seamlessly became a part of the action and joy of the day and captured everything we were hoping for and more. Everything, from our personalities to our details to the entire feel of the day, shows up in our pictures and I couldn't have asked for anyone better than Photobyjoy to trust with that priceless task.

jordynIt's hard to keep my experience with Asia to a few sentences because she was such a blessing as our photographer and now friend. Bridals were so much fun; she was creative, personable, HILARIOUS, yet humble. I was clueless when it came to wedding photography but she put me at ease and was incredible, capturing so many candid moments that will last a lifetime. Asia is seriously one in a million; yes, her photography is beautiful and the best work I've seen, but her enthusiasm and love for creating quality pictures makes working with her such a joy
