Q: Do all your wedding collections include an engagement session?
A: Yes! I include a complimentary engagement session with every wedding collection because they are a fun way to alleviate lots of wedding day jitters! We'll talk about posing, lighting, and my shooting philosophy so that when the wedding day arrives, you'll be confident and ready to go!
Q: What's your wedding photography style?
A: My favorite images are the ones that show the joy and emotion that every bride and groom experience on their wedding day. It's my goal to capture genuine moments and transform them into effortless, gorgeous portraits that will live forever in your album or on your living room wall. I love bright, clean images that highlight natural beauty of the location.
Q: You said your husband is a DJ. Do you do weddings together?
Yes! We absolutely love to work weddings together. I should also mention that we provide a $200 discount to all our brides who book both their wedding photography and DJ packages with us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on hiring a Josh Staley Productions DJ.
Q: Can I hire you as my wedding photographer for less than eight hours?
A: Because I believe that every bride deserves the best quality wedding photography experience, I have purposely tailored my package options to all include 8 hours of coverage. I have been a part of weddings where the timeline has been stretched too thin, and it causes nothing but stress! I don't want any of my brides to compromise their wedding day experience because we tried to squeeze too much into a small time frame. The eight hour window allows me to capture every detail beautifully and will reduce the amount of pressure on everyone involved.
*I've been known to make exceptions to the rule for very small intimate ceremonies or elopements. Contact me for details!
Q: Do I have to make a wedding day timeline? Will you help me?
A: Yes, absolutely! Your wedding timeline will serve as a guide to make sure that nothing is forgotten, and will alleviate a TON of wedding day stress. We will talk about this in detail once you've booked!
Q: Do you shoot with a second shooter?
A: Yes! My second shooter / assistant will be on site through the entire wedding day and will help me manage gear, arrange family members for family portraits, and of course, capture your wedding day from a second point of view!
Q: How many images will I receive?
A: You will receive an average of 60 images per hour that we are shooting.
Q: Can you give me all the RAW files that you capture at my wedding?
A: No, and you wouldn't want me to. I take over a thousand images on a wedding day, and many of those images are duplicates, poorly lit, or out of focus. Every image you receive in your final gallery has been hand-picked and lightly edited in order to reflect my style and create a gorgeous streamlined wedding gallery just for you.
Q: Can I print my pictures?
A: Yes! The contract contains a print release, allowing you to print and share as much as you want.
Q: Do you travel for destination weddings?
A: Absolutely! Josh and I both love to travel, so we are willing to go just about anywhere! Contact us for more information, or visit our Travel page to see where we're dying to visit!

How to Book
"The truth is, as the photographers, we get to spend more time with the bride and groom than anyone, and you can't put a price on being the ones who get to push the button that saves their memories forever."
- Amy & Jordan Demos, Arizona wedding photographers
I was a bride just over two years ago, and I remember what's it's like to be in your shoes. I was excited, nervous, and relying on countless people to make the wedding day possible. As a bride, I didn't want a photographer who would just show up and shake my hand on my wedding day. I wanted someone I could trust to be prompt, cheerful, and helpful who would deliver great images.
My philosophy for wedding photography is simple: Create and capture joy. I work hard on your wedding day so you don't have to. As a Michelle Joy bride, you'll know that you can trust me not only to deliver beautiful images, but to be your biggest wedding day supporter.
