YES! It's no secret that John and I love an adventure! We frequently travel and have visited our amazing couples in California, Seattle, Florida, and New York City - just to name a few places!

We travel for both weddings and engagement sessions! Often our couples live out-of-state, and we love being able to travel to them, explore together, and capture their engagement story in the city where they fell in love!

We include travel for all weddings within the Metro Detroit area, and charge a small fee for weddings requiring further travel. For destinations with flights, travel costs will be customized depending on the specifics of your location, however it’s generally two nights hotel and round trip flight. 

Typically, John and I try to meet our clients in-person before the official booking. We love to chat in person to go over all the little details and of course, swap love stories!! If you aren't in the southeast Michigan area, don't worry! Many of our couples live all over the United States, and for these we meet on Google hangouts or Skype!

After we have met, you can decide which collection best works for you, and we'll send over your online proposal and contract! To officially reserve your date, a $500 booking fee (cash or check) and signed contract are due! The balance is then due 30 days before the wedding date.

John and I like to consider ourselves a boutique! We only work with around fifteen to twenty incredible couples every year, and love getting to know each of them individually! We work hard to give our couples a unique and personalized experience. By the time the wedding day arrives, we are celebrating right alongside our couples, not just as vendors, but as friends!

Should we do an engagement session?

Yes!!! Whenever possible, we love photographing couples before their big day! It really helps all of us get to know each other in a relaxed setting, and most of all, helps you become comfortable in front of the camera! Often couples will express concern that they are uncomfortable posing for photos, and having an engagement session will truly allow you take away these worries on your wedding day.

We have our couples pick locations that are special to them (especially unique and adventurous places!), so that you have photos of yourselves where you feel relaxed and authentic! Make a date out of it, and enjoy this special time in your lives together!

It was like having a wedding guardian angel!!

They are totally a dream team, and truly above and beyond photographers. On the day of the wedding, they helped us stay on time and gave great direction, and were total sweethearts. They help make you feel so comfortable, and their style is so soft and romantic!  We had so many traditions from merging two different cultures (Austrian and Taiwanese), and they captured all of the important details. They truly did a wonderful job and we can't stop recommending them to everyone!
- Mary and Eric

Bethany and John were one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding.

Bethany and John were seriously a godsend. My husband and I clicked instantly with Bethany and John during our engagement shoot, and they made us feel so comfortable. Fast forward to our wedding day... they were amazing. They were the perfect balance of being present, but invisible. In the moments we needed them, they acted as extended bridal party offering a helping hand. In other moments, they captured the perfect candid shots without us even realizing they were there! They work in perfect harmony. We were so lucky to have them!

I do not even know where to begin with Beth and John - we had such an amazing experience with them!! I love photography and this was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. I was blown away! One of the reasons we chose Beth Joy was because we wanted real photos that represented who we are. Our photos are the PERFECT mix of beauty and glamour shots, with pictures that look like us and let our inner-selves shine through. I could turn to them for counsel on pictures as well as wedding planning in general. You will feel very valued working with Beth and John!
