As life unfolds in its uniquely beautiful ways, it’s the fleeting moments that tend to stick with us – a family’s joyous laughter, a senior’s proud stance, the expectant glow of a mother-to-be, or the radiant love between two souls. I believe in the extraordinary magic of these seemingly ordinary moments and am dedicated to capturing them authentically and timelessly.

The giggles, the squabbles, the special shared moments… these are the instances that become woven into the rich tapestry of family. We aim to authentically encapsulate these moments, creating a collection of memories you’ll treasure for generations.

Robyn Borden says…
I recently had the pleasure of hiring Joel as our wedding photographer and I cannot express how thrilled my husband and I are with the exceptional service and stunning photos we received. From start to finish, Joel exceeded our expectations. He was professional, and friendly and made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. He even looked over my wedding day timeline and offered some great advice/tips. He truly went above and beyond. We received so many compliments from family and friends on how amazing the photos turned out. Thank you, Joel for making our wedding day unforgettable!


I have three packages for Family, Maternity, and Senior sessions. The most popular package starts at $450. Get in contact for my complete pricing guide.

The short answer is it depends. It depends on the length of the session. Suppose we are going to multiple locations and the overall energy of the session. But if you need a number, then on average, you should expect 50 images per hour.

Yes! I most certainly do. I primarily travel for my weddings. So, if you’re in the Northern California area looking to have me photograph you or your family, then I would be happy to come to you and to a location that you want.

My wedding Packages start at $4490. I always recommend getting in touch as soon as possible as I only take on a select number of weddings yearly to ensure all my couples receive my full attention.

frequently asked questions

Most family sessions are booked 1-2 months in advance. But feel free to reach out anytime, as I have dates open up occasionally.

My wedding couples typically book me 18 months in advance, but my advice is to reach out as soon as you have a wedding date if you want to secure me for your wedding date.

Chico, Ca, has a lot of beautiful outdoor locations to choose from. I also offer in-home photography sessions. We will ultimately choose a location that highlights your family, and I will offer suggestions to help you make that decision.

Great question! If the weather is too bad to go out and shoot in, we will reschedule for a date that works with our busy lives. If you must cancel, please inform me as soon as possible.
