Joey Fandel is a joy to work with. My husband hates being on camera, and often gets tense and nervous when taking photos -- but Joey made him feel so comfortable and natural. Without forcing awkward poses like other photographers we've worked with, Joey captured our love so effortlessly and made the whole experience about us and what we wanted to see in the photos. He brought laughter to our stiff moments, calm and confidence to our anxious "wedding nerves", and an artist's eye to what may have looked like a blank canvas to some. The photos turned out more beautiful than we imagined possible, and we will definitely refer him to friends and family.

My husband Michael and I have had the privilege to work with you (Joey) a handful of times, and we certainly will continue to do so with every opportunity we get. I can't even begin to explain how pleased we are with all the photos you have taken for us. The creativity + attention to detail you posses shines through in all of your photos; each one capturing perfectly the beauty and spirit of the moment.
At every occasion we have hired you to photograph (our engagement photo shoot in the wildflowers and beside the ocean tide pools at sunset, for my tropical garden bridal party, our wedding rehearsal luau and our dreamy Kauai wedding) your work ceases to amaze us. You have always gone over and beyond our expectations, photographing so many moments that would so often go unnoticed. It is truly apparent that you love what you do and that is why you are so good at it!
Your positive vibrancy makes it so easy to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I have worked with many different photographers for various fitness modeling jobs in passed years, and no one has ever come close to making me feel as comfortable in front of the camera as you have. You make the subjects of your work feel absoultely beaming with beauty!
Joey, you are also an excellent director behind the lens. From organizing large group shots, to positioning those classic moments on every brides "must have shot list", your passion for your work is evident.
Thank you for patience when working with us, and for bringing forth a creative eye at every opportunity. We are forever grateful to you, Joey, for transforming our engagement photos + wedding photos into true works of art.

Joey was an unbelievable photographer for our wedding. From the first time we met him, we knew that he carried himself in a manner which was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer. If you think picture-taking can sometimes be a little awkward, Joey is the guy to flip the script and make you comfortable. All that, AND he took some insane photos for us. Joey did our engagement shoot and our wedding day, and produced some truly creative and one of a kind photos. In case you haven't gotten the hint, we can't recommend Joey highly enough.
