Joshua photographed my engagement and destination wedding [in Iceland] and I couldn’t be happier!! I contacted him about a year before the date and him and Brittney were so easy to talk to. They were as excited about my wedding as I was! I can’t recommend Joshua Veldstra Photography enough, he made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and it shows in all the photos! I can’t wait until the next excuse to have Joshua photograph a big event in my life!!

Just wanted to say thanks again to both of you. We were very happy with everything. Couldn’t have been a better experience!! Thank you Joshua for taking absolutely stunning photos, they are spectacular!! Better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you so so so much!!

Joshua is amazing! He was so helpful in every part of working with him, from organizing a date and time, to the wedding, and the final pictures. I couldn’t imagine using another photographer after working with Joshua! We couldn’t thank him more for everything he did for us. He made our wedding pictures perfect!

It is difficult to find words that properly describe how truly wonderful Joshua and [his assistant] were at our wedding. Words like fantastic, wonderful, delightful and perfect don’t even hold a candle to the way my HUSBAND and I felt after they accompanied us through the best day of our lives. We wouldn’t have it any other way. During the celebration they made us feel at ease, there was never an awkward moment and every shot we took with them made us feel carefree. Booking our wedding with Joshua and his team was THE BEST decision we could have made. Not to mention I can’t even count the amount of “fan girls” we had there that were just as excited as we were. Everyone we spoke to had nothing but praise to give them and we are beyond excited to see our photos finished. Had just our sneak peek been the only shots we would ever see, we would be content. They captured all of the perfect moments. You’d be crazy not to book them yourselves! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Where do I start?! I have too many good things to say. For one, Joshua photographed my husband and I in the pouring rain, on a mountain with ridiculous winds. And he encouraged my dramatic self the entire time!! He held my extra shirt that I brought with me to cover my head from the rain, he brought TWO umbrellas with him for us and even lost one in the crazy weather!! He let me wear his jacket while he only had a short sleeved shirt on.. how selfless?! He then proceeded to show us all of our photos while we all sat in the truck and tried to warm up. And the photos were beyond what we could have asked for, and we haven’t even seen the final touches yet! He went above and beyond with the weather we were dealt. Joshua is definitely the photographer you want, we couldn’t have picked anyone better!

Joshua is an absolute dream photographer. I got married less than 24 hours ago, and he’s already shelling out completed photos. You guys. Look 🙌🏼 at 🙌🏼 these!

Not only did he capture these amazing moments, he’s wonderful to work with. He made sure we always had what we needed, even making sure our beer and margs were always full.

I could not have asked for anyone better to capture our best day ever.

Joshua recently shot some family photos for us on a trip to Homer to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary and my Dad’s 70th birthday. He was SO awesome to work with and really made our vision come to reality. We had never had professional photos done and he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Our pictures turned out better than we imagined and will cherish them forever. We highly recommend Joshua for your photography needs!!

Thank you for the great work that you did with out wedding photos. We could not be happier with the results and are so glad we chose you! Thank you for your professionalism and fun. It was such a pleasure to work with you all. You are responsive, kind, and incredibly creative and talented… we will treasure our photos forever. Thank you again!

First of all, wow! Working with Joshua and his team from scheduling to finish was nothing short of awesome. From my initial request for availability, Joshua’s team was responsive, helpful and flexible. Obviously we had to have him for our wedding pictures.

For the event Joshua and his assistant Alexa arrived on site (early!) and were an immediate highlight of our wedding experience. Joshua is very personable and just great person to have around. Joshua and Alexa were very thorough with communication and diligently (and seemingly effortlessly) found amazing photo opportunities all throughout the day. For 8 hours they both kept us going and put up with a some what rowdy group.

Aside from taking so many amazing pictures, Joshua and Alexa treated us like royalty. Asking if we needed anything - serving us drinks/food during dinner (who wants their picture taken while they are stuffing their face).

Joshua, sincerely, thank you for making an amazing day a memorable one.

Joshua is just so amazing! He shot our engagement photos and was absolutely great to work with. It was really windy and cold and he was super quick and managed to capture so many amazing photos. Not to mention, we received them back in two days! He is extremely talented and super easy going and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would def use him again in the future. Thank you so much!!

-Amanda Lee


Speechless!! We just got our photos back (less than 2 weeks after the wedding may I add) and they blew us away. Everything we could have asked for and more!

Aside from their amazing photography skills, working with Joshua and his assistant Lex was a dream. They were so fun to be around, and made the whole experience comfortable and natural. Not only did they take great photos all night, but they were also asking what they could get us and keeping our drinks full. I can’t wait to find an excuse to work with Joshua and his team again :) Best decision we made booking them and I could not recommend Joshua Veldstra enough!

I am in complete awe at the maternity photos Joshua took for us!! He was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. We battled the wind the day of our shoot, but in the end it made the photos that much more candid and flat out beautiful.
I've admired his jaw-dropping work for some time and am more than grateful that he was able to capture the beginning of our growing family. He truly is the best!

Joshua did such a beautiful job capturing the different aspects of my son’s personality and the beauty of his surroundings. My son loved his session with Joshua! Thank you for the gorgeous senior pictures!
— Kate Turner Barnard

I reaaally wanted Joshua to photograph my wedding because I've been a fan of his work for quite some time. I love the composition, the candidness and the dynamic rich quality of his work which creates images that are exceptionally beautiful. He certainly did not disappoint!
I'm so grateful that he was able to photograph our special day. He captured our best moments with all the artistry and magic that I've admired for years. His work told the story of our wedding day and of our love for each other, I couldn't be happier!
I've always said that the photographer is one of the most important parts of a wedding because after the day is done, the photos are one of the only things you have left! I will cherish these memories, and amazing images, for the rest of my life. Thank you!!!

Joshua is an absolutely amazing photographer. He shot my engagement photos and they were absolutely stunning. He and his wife Brittney were so fun to work with and were extremely professional. my photos were even better than I could have imagined. I would recommend him a thousand times over. Joshua really captured the love that my fiancé and I share while also telling the story of us through his work. Thank you Joshua for making us look so stunning.
— Miranda Bertrand

Joshua did such a fantastic job with our engagement photos! We were so impressed with him from start to finish. He was easy to schedule with and very responsive to messages. I was expecting to be a little camera shy as I’ve never had professional photos done. However, once we met Joshua and took those first few photos I was totally comfortable. He picked out beautiful locations and gave us plenty of directions during the shoot. I am so thankful and cannot recommend him enough! I will absolutely cherish these photos forever.
