meet Denver wedding photographer, Kari Joy

I'm so glad you're here! I'm Kari, a joyful and enthusiastic life-getter! I love Jesus, my family, the mountains....oh and capturing couples in love right here in the beautiful Rocky Mountains and beyond! 

I wasn’t always a Denver wedding photographer! Photography was just a passion until a friend asked me to photograph her wedding back in 2012. I didn’t know it at the time but that would plant a seed for my love of capturing those special moments that take place on your wedding day! I got married to my amazing husband in 2014 and I loved every moment of our wedding day. This is when I really decided I wanted to capture these special memories for other couples on their wedding day.

What it's like to work with Denver wedding photographer,
kari Joy

I believe in capturing authentic emotions that perfectly reflect your love and relationship through laughter and sweet moments! When you’re in front of my camera I love creating memories while I will lead you in natural poses and prompts that will help you look and feel your best. You deserve to have photos you love and look amazing in! I know we’ve had a successful time if there was belly-laughing and maybe even some happy tears! 

Having been a bride myself, I remember the things that were most important to me; getting to marry my best friend and celebrating our love with our friends and family. From each intimate moment to every tiny detail that you put thought and effort into on your wedding day, I'm there to capture it all and tell the story of your love through every frame.

"My husband and I have looked through our wedding photo gallery multiple times a day ever since Kari sent them over and every day we find new favorites! I am sooo obsessed!
Kari is truly a beautiful and extremely talented soul and it comes out through her work. Not only was Kari professional, but she strives to serve you and ensure that your wedding day goes perfectly! I will forever recommend Kari Joy Photography!

"We cannot recommend Kari highly enough. Not only did our pictures come out looking AMAZING but she was also the funnest person to have around on the day! She put us both at ease and made the entire day a pleasure."

 I am SO glad that we found Kari! From the first meeting, she was warm and professional. She answered all of our questions and we felt an immediate connection that continued into our photo session. She made us feel sooooo comfortable and provided great coaching throughout the session. And the photos!!! They're stunning and perfectly capture our relationship. She has gone above and beyond to surprise and delight us and I can't recommend her enough!" 

"Kari was an absolute joy to work with! She is so kind and warm and makes you feel at ease the minute you meet her. She is a true celebrator! She makes you feel so special and has such an eye for creative, beautiful shots. I was amazed and over the moon with the results. I absolutely love the photos and am so thankful we had Kari as our photographer!"

"I'm extremely impressed with Kari's ability to find the best shot! She has such a great eye for what will make an incredible back drop, plus she can get a great picture of even the least photogenic people on the planet. Kari and Kyle teach you how to pose in a very unposed way. Kari made our wedding day so incredibly special and I cannot thank her enough for that. You seriously can't go wrong booking her as your wedding photographer!"
