New look, the same Virginia photography you know and love.




welcome to

Belle Eve Photography

Welcome, friend! I am a wedding, branding, and portrait photographer based in Yorktown, Virginia. I am a combination of hydrangeas, sweet tea, and magnolia trees mixed with a little bit of sass and a whole lot of joy. Serving joyful, adventurous couples and families in Virginia and Eastern North Carolina who treasure authentic heirloom images. It would be an honor to serve you.

hello there

Meet the photographer

Hi!  I am Joy!  People ask me all the time if my personality reflects my name, and the answer is a resounding YES!  I’m a joyful, adventurous person (give me all the outdoor camping adventures!) and absolutely love helping couples and families as I create beautiful fine art imagery that they can hang on their walls or browse through their albums as they revisit their favorite memories.  I look forward to meeting you and to working with you! Warmly, Joy
