Thank You

Wow.  From the first time I met Diana I felt so taken care of. She is intentional about making sure that she will be a great fit. I sat down with her for an hour just simply getting to know her and her work before we even had a contract drawn up. You get so much more than a photographer when you work with Diana. I can’t recommend her enough.

"I felt so taken care of."

There are not enough good things I can say! I’m a wedding planner and Diana was wonderful to work with. Not only are her photos gorgeous, her professionalism is unmatched. Highly recommend!

"There are not enough good things I can say!"

Diana with Joy and Light Photography is amazing. Her photos are fantastic. But even more is you can truly tell she values your experience. She took care to make sure everyone was comfortable and it really shows in the pictures. Genuine smiles for a genuinely great photographer and photo experience.

CAREY

"everyone was comfortable and it really shows in the pictures."

We wanted something fun and she delivered (bookstore, disco balls, retro laundromat, and more)! It’s very clear that she loves what she does, both due to the exceptional quality of photos she delivers and the presence she brings.

TAYLOR

"We wanted something fun and she delivered!"

I seriously cannot recommend her enough guys! Her prices are more than fair for all the hard work and support she provides. Her photos are phenomenal but her guidance along the way has been one of my biggest blessings.

She makes you look good no matter what! 1000000/10 rating.
