Some say people should glance over five star reviews because they weren’t thought through, but this time don’t! They are above and beyond five stars! Not only are their pictures beyond incredible, but they are the sweetest people! This is a factor that can be easily missed, but is so valuable because the craziness you’re going through the day of and because they’ll be working with other vendors too. Having understanding, thoughtful and kind vendors matters so much. Side note:some pictures they took of us weren’t allowed to be an advertisement of Facebook, because they were too close to perfect and didn’t adhere to Facebook’s realism standards. They are really that good and have such an amazing eye for things. Every wedding day should be your best day ever, and I know choosing Joy and Jared is surely a boost in that direction. They are the full package!!

Joy and Jared are absolutely PHENOMENAL!! From the first moment we met Joy during our engagement photos, we knew that we had made the right choice. She was bubbly and just incredibly friendly but completely professional at the same time! Poor thing even lost her shoe to a mud pit trying to get the perfect shot for us! Talk about dedication!! We had sneak peaks within 48 hours which is incredible when you’re antsy and dying to see them! When we did get to see the pictures, we could not believe how beautiful they were! My facebook just blew up with friends commenting about how incredible Firefly’s shots were. I couldn’t have agreed more! On our wedding day, I just kept wanting to hug both of them all day! They showed up early, scoped out the perfect shot opportunities, and knew exactly what to do. They were in complete sync with each other all day as well as with the videographers which means not a single special moment was missed. Thankfully, they also kept us on time for each moment of the reception as it’s easy to lose track of time when you’re trying to chat with all your loved ones. If we didn’t have them we probably could have kept the guests there all night just because we certainly weren’t paying any attention to the day of schedule. All night we heard remarks from our families of how wonderful our photographers were! We definitely agree! If we had a chance to do our wedding over we would pick them every time without a doubt!

Hiring Firefly Photography to capture our engagement and wedding photos was the best decision we made during the whole wedding planning process! Not only did our photos turn out AMAZING, but working with Joy and Jared is an absolute dream. They are quick to respond to emails, give suggestions for photo locations and poses, and make you feel absolutely valued & beautiful. Joy and Jared are absolutely sweet to watch photograph together and their love for each other shows when they capture your own personal love story. When searching for a photographer my number 1 criteria was their ability to photograph indoors in low lighting and at night. They definitely delivered on all of that and took gorgeous photos outside that were bold, crisp and not washed out at all from the hot Alabama sun! 100% would recommend to my family, friends, and you!

Joy and Jared are INCREDIBLE. We are so thankful to have had them capture our wedding day. They were passionate and kind and they truly felt like family. Having them around on our day was just a pleasure. We were adamant about not wanting to spend a lot of time taking posed photos and J and J were wonderful about helping us stick to our schedule. They kept the ball rolling and were SO unbelievably warm and kind to everyone. It was perfect. We were nervous that the day would become about the pictures with a photographer pushing for certain photos and all that madness, and this was NOT the case with Joy and Jared. They actually captured our day and us as it was happening. I’d say that 80% of our photos are candids and they are all stunning. I don’t know how they do it. They’re magicians. I truly can’t speak highly enough of these 2. In addition to the impeccable photos, they make such a beautiful team. Watching them work together was inspiring as we were about to venture into married life. They are so sweet and lovely and just wonderful to have around. I could gush about Firefly Photography forever. Hiring these guys was the best decision we made for our special day. Besides getting married, of course.

Joy and Jared captured breathtaking photos of our wedding day. They are so kind, and their calming presence and knowledge of wedding timelines helped our day flow so smoothly. They made the photo process so easy, natural and fun!! Their work was by far the best we found, and after working with them, I can’t imagine finding a better couple to capture our day!!
