Hi. Thanks for visiting. 

Each of us experience life differently... and I love to capture how we do that. Just how momentous a wedding day can be... Just how zany and fun family time is. My style is an amalgamation of my personal artistic touch with a candid approach. My effort is to provide work that is reflective of the events, feelings, and moments that occur. Whether it be a pivotal moment like "I do" or a quiet intimate glance, my aim is to document your wedding moment by moment. My photography is complimented most by my vigor, enthusiasm, and creative drive! I strive to give clients authentic, candid, and creative photography. 

I grew up outside of Rockford, Illinois and received my Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in printmaking (not photography) in addition to Art History and Psychology Minors from Rockford University. My involvement and appreciation of art, photography, and people has been nothing short of a lifelong endeavor. There's few things I love more than creating with and working with others. It's my passion. 

I'm not just a photographer. I'm a daughter and I love to go fishing with my dad and meet my mom for coffee. I'm a proud aunt and love Joey, Kysa, Levi, Addy and AJ to pieces - spending time with them fills my heart with joy! Winston, my trusty newfoundland, is my right hand man and I do just about everything I can with him (he hasn't made the cut for wedding assistant quite yet). I'm a believer in giving back and true Midwesterner at heart, even halfway around the planet when I climb mountains in New Zealand (oh yea, I love to travel!) 

If you're interested in setting up a session or want to inquire about rates, feel free to email me at mindy@mindyjoyphotography.com or give me a ring at 815.985.4005. I'd love to chat!
