Hello and Welcome!
I’m Anna, it is so good to meet you! (Now, let’s just imagine we are in a cute little modern coffee shop, sipping Lavender oatmilk lattes or a good cappuccino, k?)
If you’re reading this, you are probably in the market for a photographer to capture some memories for you? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
A little about me you ask? I am a Pacific Northwest babe through and through - I was born and raised in the Seattle area, traveled lots and grew up camping and exploring the outdoors. Most of my childhood was spent on a little hobby farm about 1.5hrs north of Seattle. My dad is in film production and that’s where I developed a love of capturing memories. I had a camera in my hands since I was young - I taught myself how to use my little camera and took so many photos (just ask my siblings!).It ebbed and flowed over years of “doing” photography as a hobby to finally making the plunge and jumping into the deep end and making this my full time job!
I love exploring new coffee shops, long walks along the beach and rainy days! I love being cozy and relaxed at home, cooking and baking or reading a book and I’m always adding to my plant baby collection. I like to think that I am a minimalist, but my kids would probably say otherwise, and I feel like I’m constantly organizing, getting rid of and cleaning! I love cheesy hallmark movies (you either hate them or love them). But I also love the outdoors and like to say that I am adventurous- I’m always drawn to the mountains, rivers and ocean. I love travel, I’ve been to over 15 countries and can’t wait to add more to my passport (I’m looking at you Europe!) and have been to almost every state (anyone in Alaska need a wedding or elopement photographer?!)
I love capturing the raw, authentic and real moments- I create movement and actions to capture those moments. I’m down to earth and a storyteller. Each couple has a story of their love, each family a story about who they are together and each brand has a story of who their brand is. My aim is to tell that story, with my camera - they say a photo is worth a thousand words, right? So let’s write that story together!
Anna Joy Photography is so worth the investment!
"Working with Anna Joy Photography was one of the best wedding decisions I made. My husband and I chose to have a destination wedding, and Anna made me feel at peace about choosing an out of state photographer throughout the whole planning process. She made me feel cared for and valued as she checked in frequently and asked personal questions to be able to capture our love story the best. On top of being a great communicator, Anna made me and husband feel comfortable as she photographed both our engagement session and wedding day! She invested in getting to know us as a couple and was able to read our comfort level throughout our time together. She provided timely service and updates. Most importantly, she took the most AMAZING photos! You can see the heart Anna has for photography as she captures every detail so perfectly. If you are looking for a talented, personal, and superb photographer to capture special moments in your life, I would hands down recommend using Anna Joy Photography!" - Morgan + Jose

Thank you SO much, Anna Joy Photography!” - Annie + Tim
Outstanding Wedding Photographer
"Anna was absolutely amazing. My husband and I are so happy to have worked with Anna on our wedding day! After working with her for our engagement photos, I couldn’t wait to see what she could capture on our special day. She has the ability to make her clients feel so natural behind the lens and by doing so she was able to capture our true relationship. Hosting a wedding in the year 2020 was an adventure, to say the least, but Anna’s attention to detail and flexible attitude contributed to our wedding coming together flawlessly. We couldn’t be happier with how our photos turned out and would highly recommend Anna Joy Photography to anyone!!" -Sydney
