Joy began her journey at a popular photography chain, where, for three years, she photographed hundreds of families in Pittsburgh and her hometown of Philadelphia. Learning a lot over the years and falling more and more in love with photography, Joy made the leap to become her own brand, Joy Evonne Photography in 2013.
She does it for nostalgia, reflecting, for all those day-to-day moments that get blurred by the bustle of life. She wants to pin down that feeling she gets as she’s flipping through old photo books of she and her siblings and every last moment she’d like to keep forever… this is the magic she wants to capture. It’s the story she believes in, the story that will live on in photos. From baby bumps to beaming brides, Joy seeks the unique beauty of each family, individual, and event with a combination of creativity and years of technical expertise.
Joy has a B.A. in English Writing with a minor in Theatre from the University of Pittsburgh. When she isn’t behind a camera, Joy can be found scooting around the city, writing, reading, painting, snagging some sushi, or cuddled up with her husband and a cup of tea watching The Walking Dead. Her favorite color is green, green like the forest. And if her smile seems shy when you meet, it’s because she believes in first impressions.
