The best of the best!
Our engagement shots were so beautiful and personal. The wedding pictures were simply stunning. Joel provided us with wonderful pictures of our day that captured perfectly the emotion and atmosphere of our wedding day. He even brought along props to our engagement and wedding shoots! Also, Joel and Justyna are such personable and sweet individuals! We had such a blast working with them. They quickly made everyone feel at ease, and even bought me (the bride) a pair of flip-flops after my feet were so sore from walking in my wedding shoes (a beautiful pair but not practical!). I would highly recommend to anyone who wants beautiful, artistic, photojournalist-esc photos of their wedding.
