Hi there!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by! I’m Carmela, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Arizona. The reason I love photography is simple – I love people and I love stories. I am passionate about capturing the genuine interactions, spontaneous moments, and candids that make your personality and love unique. When a couple asks me to join them on one of the best days of their lives, it is something I take great responsibility and joy in. When I see the way you laugh together, the way you look at each other, and your wild passion for each other - I see your love as a work of art and it’s such an honor to capture those moments.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet many AMAZING people along the way and hope to be able to meet YOU and hear your story. Let’s adventure together!

"She immediately makes you feel completely comfortable, laughing and making the whole experience fun. She's very creative with set ups and locations, all the while being efficient and punctual.

-BRIANA

"Carmela is such a joy to work with! She brings energy and enthusiasm to her photo shoots, making the picture taking process a truly fun experience. She brings out the best in everyone—especially in her photos! She’s done several shoots for me and my family, and to this day, my favorite photos were taken by her."

-SARAH

"Carmela has been our family photographer for a long time and has captured so many important life events for us. She is easygoing and makes us feel comfortable in front of the camera, yet is extremely professional and communicates with us very well. We love working with her, have recommended her to several of our friends and family, and will continue to do so in the future!"

-AMANDA

"Carmela is an amazing photographer with great talent. She is very efficient and has a positive and lifting personality. Once we got to the site we were pretty awkward in front of the camera and didn’t really know what to do. Carmela instructed us on what to do and made us feel comfortable.  I highly recommend Carmela Joy Photography for your event! Thank you, Carmela!"
