Joe Hulsey for J West Photography was amazing to work with. During our engagement photo session he was very laid back and made us feel very comfortable. He has a lot of great ideas for different poses and is willing to try any ideas you might have. We liked how he put all of our pictures on a CD for us so that we could choose what ones we wanted to print. If I ever had any questions about anything, he was so easy to get ahold of and always responded the same day. Another thing we really liked were his photo packages with the unlimited hours. Some photographers charge by the hour so it was nice to not have to worry about running out of time and getting all the pictures we wanted to take. He's willing to come as early as you want to take pictures of you getting ready with your bridesmaids on the big day. I even had him come to the mall with my bridesmaids and I to take pictures of our makeup session! He's a very good sport and will do anything for you to make your wedding day special and memorable.
When we discovered JWest Photograhy, we were excited!! Every Bride knows this is one of the most important events in their life. Having a Photographer is the most crucial part of their special day, other than marrying the Love of their life!
When we approached Joe to be our photographer, I didn't realize just how Extraordinary he would be .. There are not enough STARS to rate JWest Photography. Joe went above and beyond his expectations. The interaction he possesses with Family & Friends, the Bridal Party and of course, myself, the bride; and my groom, Steve, was just phenomenal ...
We had excellent pictures, and LOTS of them. Poses we ourselves, wouldn't have thought of. The most personable photos were taken that day and a lifetime of memories to reflect upon, all THANKS to Joe!
I couldn't refer a better photographer, I see JWest as the finest in our area. Most Definitely, I DO refer Joe to anyone who is in search of a great, honest, personable, and friendly photographer who will capture your every moment. I can tell this is his passion as his work reflects every aspect of that.
We were thrilled before and after to have JWest Photography and will continue to use and refer him.
We appreciate everything from that day, but the memories that will stay with us a lifetime are in part to JWest for keeping them so precious for us !!!
We can't THANK you enough Joe,
The Fee Family
J West Photography was wonderful. Joe was a pleasure to work with and I received several compliments from my bridal party and guest on how nice and likable he was. My husband and I were able to have Joe with us all day to capture every moment of our special day. We were very pleased with the prints and as a part of our package. If you are in the Louisville region I would recommend Joe with J West Photography and could not have been happier with my choice of photographer.
Joe with J West Photography is very personable and laid back. From the first time we met Joe, we knew he was the perfect choice to be our wedding photographer. During our engagement photography session he was laid back and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He also took into consideration the ideals I had for our engagement photos from the props to the poses. He also suggested great poses, which became some of our favorite pictures.
He followed us from the morning of our wedding day until the last song of our reception that night. It was important to me to have a photographer with us all day to capture all the important moments of our wedding day. I am so glad Joe offers an all day package, because many local wedding photographer don't offer such packages at an affordable rate. On our big day he was sure to capture all the moments that we will remember for a lifetime. He also got some great candid shots of our ring bearer that were so cute (he was the life of our wedding party and it really showed through our photos).
I would recommend J West photography to anyone looking for a personable and experienced wedding photographer. Our experience with Joe was wonderful. We look forward to being able to continue to include him in our future photography needs.
Joe was a delight to work with. He was so flexible and fit right in. He took time to look at my pintrest page and being props. He never interrupted to get a picture and it felt very natural to take pictures for him. My husband who hates pictures even made the comment " I don't mind taking pictures when they are this easy!" We got our pictures back quickly and they were amazing! He captured every moment of the wedding day and it was so fun reliving the wedding day.
I had a difficult time planning my wedding since half of the time I was in another state! I found Joe from there, he was super nice and totally understood the situation. He did not rush a decision out of me until I was home and could meet in person (about 4 months after initial email/phone call). Our wedding day was amazing and hectic- he was there for all of it. Even that morning before I ever talked to him he had a backup plan in place for our first look since it was muddy outside. Everyone loved Joe and how laid back he is and efficient! Now working on albums Joe is awesome to work with, super flexible and will do anything to make sure everyone is happy.
Joe is wonderful to work with and was a perfect fit for our wedding. He was really laid back and best of all was unlimited hours. He had a great personality and was really fun. Even the guests of our wedding were bragging about him!
Joe was a delight to work with! Our photos are absolutely beautiful. He captured moments of our wedding day that we were unable to see. Highly recommend his services.
Not only did we use Joe for our wedding, but our engagement photos, as well. He is so confident and laid back that he makes you feel so comfortable. On our big day he was there for over 8 hours and got pictures of everything and then some. The pictures are bright, well set up and carry his own personality in each one! He is a pleasure to work with and made the whole wedding party feel at ease. He is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. I am so glad I had him capture our most special day for us!
Easy to work with. Beautiful pictures.
I found J West Photography in an ad in my wedding venue's brochure. I went to his website and decided to contact him and I can tell you, I knew from our first meeting I wanted to work with him. Joe was very friendly and easygoing. His contract is very easy to understand and straight forward, but professional. Joe offers many differet affordable packages with no small print.
The day of my wedding Joe showed up and was READY! He took the time to meet my family and wedding party (did a great job remembering names!). He was very professional, organized and he captured all the LOVE and fun that I felt that day.
Ladies if you are looking for a relaxed easy-going, professional photographer then please look no further! I plan on using J West Photography from now on for all my professional photo needs.
I have recently got married in May and used Joe as my photographer. I had worked with him before while he was shooting my sister in law's wedding, so I was already aware of how great Joe was and how wonderful his work was. Not only are Joe's Photos FANTASTIC, Joe himself is a great person to work with. He was very helpful throughout the entire process of getting married. I would recommend him to anyone of my friends or family that plan on getting married!
You could not ask for a more personable photographer. Joe is great to work with in every aspect. I was very picky about the type of people that I wanted working my wedding. I wanted to work with down to earth and friendly people during the wedding. After our meetings and engagement session I considered Joe a friend. We were happy to have him at our wedding as a photographer and friend. We were more that pleased with the level of communication, punctuality, and service. Joe will be taking pictures of our first child this summer and I would recommend him to anyone.
Joe is an excellent photographer. Was told he didn't really do weddings in the Cincinnati area, but was happy to do ours and didn't charge us travel fees or anything. Would definitely recommend him, he is awesome and has great ideas
I got married in June of 2011 and used J West Photography. They were more than I even thought they would be. Joe could not be more professional and assisted me in every step of my planning. Not only is he a talented artist, but he is a great resource. Without him I would have had a more difficult time narrowing down other vendors. His experience was greatly appreciated.
The day of, Joe arrived early and stayed late. He captured every moment possible and we didn't even realize he was in the room. It just makes your day so much less stressful knowing that you have put, at least this part, in the right persons hands. Joe is very flexible and will work with any schedule. Our proofs arrived quickly and we can't wait to see our book.
Thank you again to Joe, and I highly recommend J West Photography. You won't regret it!
My husband and I were on a pretty tight budget for our wedding. Joe was more than willing to work with us, and he created a package that we were both happy with and could afford. He was very fun to work with. Joe was creative and great with direction. We enjoyed working with him very much, and I think that shows in our pictures. I definitely recommend him!
Joe, the photographer for Jwest photography is simply amazing! Most importantly for me as a bride and Im sure is important to any bride is that Joe stayed and photographed my entire wedding/reception at no additional charge! He was there from 1pm, when we were getting dressed until 930pm when the last song at the reception was played. joe is very personable and cared about me as a bride. I remember just 20 minutes before it was time for me to walk down the aisle, he pulled me aside and said "It seems as though your worrying, dont. Everything is going to be okay and the little things once you start walking down wont even matter and dont worry about missing anything because I will caputure it all" :) Those words of encouragement eased my mind just before I made that walk. Joe is simply amazing and not to mention affordable. Everything you could possibly want in a photographer ;)
I met Joe at a bridal show & liked him immediately. His personality was probably the main deciding factor in choosing him over other photographers. He was very friendly & seemed to be extremely laid-back & easing-going, not to mention that his prices were reasonable & his pictures were beautiful. Plus, he offered something that no other photographer I found offered, which was an unlimited amount of time for his services on your wedding day. Joe photographed our engagement session & my bridal session, & during those times in addition to mutiple meetings & phone calls, Joe proved himself time & time again to be incredibly flexible & easy to work with. On our wedding day, he was amazing. He was very professional but still laid-back, & he took control without being controlling. Our friends & family were so impressed with Joe's personality & the way he worked, & that was before they even saw the pictures! When we did finally see the pictures, we were even more satisfied that we chose Joe. Our pictures were beautiful. He was definitely the best vendor we had at our wedding & I would recommend him to any bride in a heartbeat. I truly could not have asked for a better photographer.
We chose Joe to be our wedding photographer because he was everything we were looking for. The photo samples he showed me were not only beautiful but fun and unique, and he was willing to try new ideas. Joe is an easy going guy that clearly loves what he does and is so much fun to work with. The packages that he offers can fit any budget, and you will not find another photographer that will put in as much time, heart, and dedication to your wedding as he does. Our wedding was amazing and I can't thank Joe enough for all of his hard work and for making our day memorable.

After meeting with Joe for the first time my husband and I knew we wanted to have Joe as our photographer. He was laid back and honest and of course, affordable. He showed up bright and early on the day of our wedding and stayed with us until late in the afternoon when the wedding was over, no time limit, he would have stayed until 2 am had we continued with the reception that late. He captured some beautiful pictures of my husband and I as well as fun pictures of our guests that we will laugh about for many years to come. I was very happy with Joe's customer service, as I didn't feel like "just another bride" to him, and I love looking at all of the wonderful pictures he captured on my special day! Thanks Joe!
