Joe is a phenomenal person to work with. I’ve had the pleasure of utilizing his talents for two separate events, and he delivered tremendous work every time. He easily understands the goal of the project, and can tackle some great photography and videography with little to no direction. Even in a venue the size of a warehouse with non-stop entertainment and activations, he didn’t miss a beat. I would highly recommend using him for and future photo or video needs!

I’ve had two super fun/wacky portrait sessions with Joe, and I loved the shoots themselves as well as the results! Joe has such a great eye. He’s also creative, fun to spend time with, collaborative, and always makes me feel 100% comfortable. And I’ll say it again - I love the photos I end up with! I highly recommend that you hire Joe any time you want your pictures taken!

We had a crazy birthday party with a lot of movement and challenging lighting conditions, but Joe handled the chaos amazingly. He has a great talent for bringing out the best in his subjects and choosing the perfect moments to capture. Our guests loved the photos and I’m happy to recommend Joe U for future events!
