  • My wife Jaime and I were blown away at the level of service, detail, and professionalism offered by Joey and his team for our August 2020 wedding at Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa, MD. Challenging would be an understatement, and Joey never missed a beat. Despite everything going on and all of our requests, concerns and worries, Joey was always super helpful and responsive. He was always a phone call, video chat, or text away. He truly felt like an extension of our planning and I cannot thank him enough. The quality of his photography is absolutely top-notch. My father has been a photojournalist for over 50 years, and I was determined to find a wedding photographer that my dad would be impressed by. I did NOT want my dad taking the photo's at our wedding, so finding someone who knew their stuff was very important. Both during the wedding and also when we got the photos, my dad reached out to tell me how impressed he was by the quality of the images. Success! We found Joey's... Read more

    Dan (and Jaime), I am so humbled by your kind and undeserving words. It is couples like you and Jaime that I enjoy working with - couples sophisticated, yet down-to-earth, easy-going, and have winsome and attractive personalities. Indeed, it was MY pleasure to work with you! Thank you so much for asking me to join you, your friends and families on this very special day and I am grateful for it. As I always say to all my couples, I don't just sell photos, or sell wedding photos - what I sell is an "experience". All the blessings and joy to you both! 😊

  • From our first interaction with Joey, we had such a smooth process! He is so organized down to his planning checklist. He makes sure that each step from engagement pictures down to the first look is exactly what you are looking for! He is very helpful in providing direction for those of us who aren't models for posed and non-posed pictures to make sure he captures the perfect moments. He was also very communicative throughout the entire COVID process to make sure each of his clients was not in the dark! Our day would not have been complete without Joey! Book him now!!

It was particularly delightful to walk along side of you during this difficult 2020 and I am so glad everything came together and you all had such a beautiful wedding. Congratulations and thanks again for asking me to capture your very special day! Blessing!

  • Working with Joey for our engagement shoot was a dream come true! From the moment we met him, we felt connected to him and the recent shoot we did proved just that. He made us feel incredibly comfortable and able to be ourselves while taking photos of us that will hang in our home for many years to come! I can't say enough good things about Joey's talent behind the camera and his ability to bring out the best in his clients in the photos he takes!

  • Joey and the group at Trans4Mation photography were amazing from our first meeting, to now! The amount of time Joey spends with his clients, and getting to know his clients is an extremely special experience. Joey pays special attention to the small details, and to the big details as well. He was always on time, and professional! Joey and his second photographer, Desirae, were amazing the day of our wedding- Desirae even helped fix my hair when it was falling out! Trans4mation goes above and beyond, and we are SO happy we chose them. Even through the pandemic, and the hassle of rescheduling, Joey made it work, at no extra cost. We thank Joey and Trans4Mation photography for our BEAUTIFUL wedding pictures!

    Kelsey and Chris, first of all, congratulations once again on your wedding! Kelsey, you looked stunning and have this incredible ability to put a smile on everyone you meet! Love it! From the moment we met, through the engagement session, and again through a pandemic, it was always delightful and a joy to interact with you and serve you. I know I've said this before and I will keep saying it.... thank you both so much for serving our communities in the professions you both have selected. If that doesn't say much about your amazing character, I don't know what else I can say ;-) Thanks for you super sweet compliments and here's to you to a wonderful life together, many blessings for health, wealth, and joy! Stay in touch!

  • Flexibility, friendliness, professionalism, and great service are how I would describe Joey. The passion Joey has for photography was evident from our first consultation meeting with him. Everything he brought to the meeting was professionally organized and my husband and I felt very happy with every option we selected for our contract. We had originally planned to marry in Annapolis on May 1st, but COVID19 restrictions made us put the brakes on for a spring wedding. Four rounds of letters and three date changes later, we finally celebrated our wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM) on August 22nd. Joey was fantastic to work with through it all. We were extremely appreciative for the flexibility and care he showed us as we navigated through each date and venue change. He even went above and beyond to help us with the zoom call so our virtual guests could participate. We had just planned on tech support for guests if they needed it, but he and Samantha went above and beyond b... Read more

    Natalie (and Shawn), thank you so much for your generous and gracious words! It feels like you're talking about someone other than me ;-) Indeed, it was a very challenging process for you (for all of us) changing the wedding date once, and the location 3 times. No one could have imagined the logistical chess board we played, but in the end, it came together and was magical! And to top if off, the weather was beautiful. Thank you again for asking me to join you one of the most important days of your lives and trusting to capture it in photos. It was a pleasure to work with you, your families and friends! I look forward to us staying in touch! :) ~ Joey Trans4mation Photography Annapolis Wedding Photographer Baltimore Wedding Photographers

  • We are so thankful we chose Joey to be our photographer. We have spent some time with Joey now since COVID impacted our original date, but he personally canceled his vacation to participate in our wedding. If that doesn't show you how committed he is I don’t know what does. We had a large bridal party and he was able to keep everyone focused!!! He directed everyone and it made the day so easy. The photos are jaw dropping. There are so many to choose from that we love! He even capture a bunch of our guests, which was a nice touch. Highly recommend! He's worth the price. If i have learned anything, don’t go cheap on photography look at their artistic ability.

    Jayme, Jayme, Jayme... wow. Your words are so kind, so generous and I feel unworthy of the compliments, but I am grateful for the opportunity you and Michael gave me to serve you, your friends and families. I am so happy that you enjoyed the experience and the photos. It is always my privilege to serve the great men and women in the military - and so I am grateful for YOU! Maybe you be blessed and find all the desires of your heart as you start this new journey! :)

  • Joey literally saved my husband and mine's wedding. 2 months before our wedding our photographer had to pull out due to health reasons. We frantically started searching for another photographer and within minutes of sending an inquiry email to him, we received a response. Later that day we had a video meeting with him where he took the time to talk us through his whole process and answer any questions we may have. The day of the wedding Joey was fantastic, keeping everyone laughing, moving quickly, and keeping us in the loop with everything. He was punctual and very professional. We got our photos in a really good amount of time and we were blown away by them!! They are heartbreakingly beautiful and delivered on everything!  Everyone was amazed and impressed with Joey capturing all the great moments of the day. Book Joey as soon as you can!! It will be the best decision you make!!

  • Joey from Trans4mation Photography was a great wedding photographer. He was very friendly throughout our entire experience, from the very first meeting all the way through the actual day of the wedding. Joey was always ready to answer our emails or text messages about any of the logistics behind our 7-hour booking. We were very happy with the photos we received! Both my wife and I felt that Joey went the extra mile for his clients and would highly recommend his vibrant energy to anyone looking for an event photographer. Married July 2019 in Baltimore, MD.

  • Deciding to go with Joey as our photographer was the easiest decision in our wedding planning! We chose Joey because he goes the extra mile by providing helpful wedding resources, vendor recommendations, and AMAZING response time. He provides multiple ways to get in contact with him, and he never took longer than 10 minutes to answer an email or text. This is something I really appreciated. He truly helped make wedding planning feel less stressful, especially on the day of. He did a great job helping us keep our timeline for our first look photos, and the order of events after the ceremony. We felt so comfortable with Joey, which produced genuine happiness and laughter in our photos. Another reason why he chose Joey was that we had a 5:30 pm wedding in November, so most of our wedding would be in the dark! Joey was prepared with years of experience to capture our happy moments with or without natural light! After the wedding, Joey posts a wedding blog with a 'sneak-peak' of your ph... Read more

    Allie and Daniel, thank you both so much for trusting and asking me to photography your very special day! It was such a delightful experience for Ursula and I to join you at the South River Golf Club. So glad the weather cooperated enough to see your dad do a fist pump when he first saw you in the dress, and then again when Daniel reacted with joyous tears during the first look. It's these moments that make my joy so rewarding. Thanks again and many blessings to both of you! ~ Joey from Trans4mation Photography - Annapolis Wedding Photographer

  • So this is a story! I went to a bridal expo Feb 2018. and I was not engaged just yet, but my now husband and I went ring shopping already so my mom, sister and I decided just to go look at an expo for ideas of vendors. This is where I met Joey. Instantly we had a connection because his personality was just so out there ( in a good way) compared to all the other photographers who we had met that were just so....well dull. Joey sat us right now and showed us all of his work and it was all so beautiful. Fast forward to July 2018, we finally got engaged! I was not sure of our wedding date yet BUT the day after we got engaged I emailed Joey saying that I remembered him from the expo and I had to have him as my photographer! As soon as we had our date, I told him and he was luckily available! My husband and I had a meeting with him, and my husband is a little reserved at times, but he could NOT stop talking about how much he loved Joeys work and how professional he was. Joey was so easy to w... Read more

    Wow, wow! Allison, you are incredibly sweet with your compliments, and they are consistent with the person you are: someone who is beautiful inside-out, appreciates beautiful expressions (like your Stella York dress and good photographers ;-), and is very considerate of others. Not surprising considering that you are a very much loved and respected trauma nurse! Your bridal party was sweet, a hoot, and gorgeous all at the same time, making my time all the more fun. Desirae and I couldn't be happier serving you and making your day so special. Thank you for asking us to come along side of you and capture your memories. I'm looking forward to staying in touch with you and Rick!

  • You end up spending a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, you want to make sure they are someone you really enjoy being around. Joey is fun when he needs to be, calm when you're ready to be stressed and firm enough to ensure you get the pictures you want. My husband and I are not used to being the center of attention and Joey made us feel comfortable enough to get the intimate pictures I didn't think were possible. I can't recommend his services highly enough - you can't go wrong with Joey!

    Lisa (and Daniel), thank you both so much for your sweet and complimentary words! I was so excited to join you both for your unique approach to your ceremony and then celebrate it at the historic, textured, and beautiful open-air Patapsco Female Institute! Everything turned out gorgeous, right down to the beautiful weather we had. Thank you for asking me to join you and capture your photos on this special day. Here's to many years of blessings, health, joy, and success! :)
