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!!

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!

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!!

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.

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!

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 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!

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.

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.
