If we could rate Joe Payne higher than 5 stars, we would. Joe not only captured our wedding day with impeccable talent, his work actually tells our story as a couple. He made us feel comfortable from the very beginning and took the time upfront to get to know who we are as individuals and as a couple, as well as our expectations for our photos. He was patient when we didn't know where to put our hands and taught us how not to be super awkward. He even made it fun to be all dressed up and taking photos while sweating bullets on a typical North Carolina summer day. Watching Joe do his thing was actually something I got a few moments to sit back and watch on our wedding day. He works tirelessly to find just the right angle, backdrop, and light. His passion is evident in the service he provides to his clients and in the final products that he creates. We can't wait to work with Joe again in the future for other special moments in our lives.
