Your wedding day genuinely matters to us. We (Joleigh & Mike Van Hoy) got married 8 years ago and remember the fun, the food, the dancing, the drama, but mostly, how we felt. And this is possible because we hired a fantastic photographer who helped us capture all those moments as we remember them, ourselves.
We always keep that in the back of our minds when we photograph weddings and engagements. We’re good at it and we have a blast doing it. We’ve shot over one hundred since we opened our doors (camera bags?) seven years ago, and still wake each wedding day morning anticipating the day ahead. Our style combines beautiful photojournalism with an artist’s eye for incredible light and composition. Although the majority of a day’s story is told through fine art documentary, we will also take time to create a few gorgeous posed images of you and your new partner for life!
Your comfort with us is paramount to our work’s success. Joleigh plays pool and volleyball, loves wine and sock hats. Mike lives for soccer, video games, and was the original Star Wars fan. We both love travel and the outdoors and have two highly-entertaining kids: Leo (5) and Lilly (3). Your turn! The time we take to get to know you helps us to capture these moments in your life as accurately and beautifully as possible. We both like to joke around but also have a knack for bringing couples back to what’s important, and then capturing that on camera. We’ve taken dozens of grooms from approaching their engagement session with dread to laughing and thanking us at the end. We’ve shown brides that their wedding and engagement photos are not going to be the result of a Pinterest board, but rather a unique collection of breathtaking images that inspires pins in the first place!
These moments mean the world to you. We want to hear about them, and then help you preserve those moments, forever.
