Hello & Welcome!

Hello and welcome to our page! My name is Daphnee and I am the face behind the camera. It means the world to me that you love my work and want to learn more about me and my team. My business is where it is today because of a passion I had for photography since literally forever! Even in school, I was always that one friend with the camera, capturing every single moment. One Christmas, I was given my first (semi professional) camera by my wonderful and supportive husband, Nelson. I started taking photos of everything and eventually launched my blog later that year. Fast forward a couple years, my church needed someone to take photos during the Sunday services and I volunteered. It was my first time photographing others people and I was in LOVE; now 3 years and 100s of hours of editing later, here we are today! 

I officially launched Joyful Shots Photography back in October of 2019, taking the photos while my husband remained mostly behind the scene. But as time progressed and the business begin to grow, my love of photography became our love of photography. Thank God for that because, working alongside him has been such a huge blessing. 

We have met so many incredible people and it has shown us how God can work through us. My joy comes from the look on our clients expressions and the loving text we receive when clients see their photos for the first time.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet. Grab a snack, browse around and say hello! So glad to have you here!
