Jess and Josh ★★★★★
Joyce shot our wedding in Darwin and we absolutely loved having her as our photographer. She was so down to earth, calm & professional, it really helped us relax and have fun. In turn, the photos look fantastic!! She even helped me find some decor for the reception and brought it up with her from Alice! Could not recommend Joyce enough!!

Jessica Moldovan ★★★★★
Just received our amazing photos from our wedding, could not recommend Joyce van Dijk enough for her wonderful work and effort. She made myself and my husband extremely comfortable and we had a lovely time with her. She is extremely professional and a wonderful person. The best part of our experience with Joyce was her communication, she is available around the clock and not only did she help us with our photography but went over and above to help me with other wedding ideas. She is an absolute gem.

“ Joyce is a fantastic photographer and very easy to work with. Highly recommended.”

Lauren Dawson (mother of the bride Jessica Moldovan)
My daughter was recently married at Ayers Rock in the NT and Joyce van Dijk was our photographer. We had not met Joyce and all correspondence was done via email. We had seen her work and were confident that she would do a good job. When we met the day of the wedding, Joyce was everything that we had hoped for. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful, caring and extremely capable wedding photographer. Joyce achieved everything we asked of her and more. The knowledge of the area made for really beautiful photos. Our whole family thanks Joyce for the time and effort she put in and we wish her all the very best for future ventures. Great, fun, informative, caring and capable!
Thanks again Joyce!

Joyce van Dijk GETS the Territory. She can capture the space, the quiet, the colours and put it all into amazing photos. Thank you for our beautiful and amazing photos. We love it and so do our friends and family across the world.

Louise and Chris ★★★★★
I originally won the opportunity to have Joyce as my photographer at the wedding expo. We were incredibly lucky, because I was aware of Joyce’s work beforehand and she was my dream photographer. Before the wedding Joyce always kept in touch and was very friendly. At the wedding we had a lot of fun taking photos and Joyce got so many great shots. Everyone at the wedding remarked at how lovely she was, and she even took photos of people at the reception – which a lot of people appreciated. I am so happy with my photos and the fun and professionalism of Joyce that I would highly recommend her. I hope I get a chance in the future to have Joyce’s services again.

Amanda McLean ★★★★★

Joyce, thank you so much for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! Your passion and talent shines through in each and every photograph.

Hi Joyce
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the day at Owen Springs at the beginning of the month. We’ve all taken much better photos of our NT trip that would have otherwise been possible! Hope all is going well for you.

Simon and Natalie
Joyce. You truly are a very talented and passionate photographer. Simon and I were after two things from our wedding…firstly of course to be married and secondly the photos. We picked Ayers Rock to be married at as there is nothing more Australian and wanted to capture the beauty of the Australian outback, this amazing rock and of course our special day. Joyce you delivered!! The photos are spectacular and you were amazing. I cannot thank you enough for making our special day truly incredible. I recommend to anyone thinking of hiring a photographer to use Joyce as you will not be disappointed.
Thanks again for everything Joyce.

Asha Kimsey
Joyce is an amazing photographer, she is a perfectionist and has amazing attention to detail. She is the only photographer I will use. I really enjoy working with her as she is friendly and always works hard to make sure you are satisfied with the photographs.

Megan Murray
I am overwhelmed with the fantastic photos. I got teary looking through them, thinking of how my grandmother is going to react next
week when she sees them. I cannot thank you enough for taking a chance on family portraits again!!!

John and Desi
Hi Joyce
Thanks so much for the photos, they are fantastic!
So many great shots. We didn’t expect so many, and they are so good.

Kath and Helen
Joyce van Dijk you are a wizard, the photos are absolutely unbelievable, thank you so much!!!!!

Jade and Daniel
Joyce Van Dijk is an amazing photographer she is a perfectionist when it comes to getting the perfect wedding shot! I would strongly recommend her services as she is proffesional and delivers fantastic results for you to treasure for a lifetime.
We couldn’t be happier!

Kate and Adam
The photographer was the first thing my husband and I wanted to book while planning our wedding. We could get married and celebrate anywhere, but there was only that one day and we wanted to make sure we found a photographer who could capture that moment in time beautifully for us. We, with out a doubt, found that with Joyce.
Our photos are amazing. Even though I fell really ill the night before the big day (ended up in hospital) and felt pretty darn horrible that day, Joyce got images that, when I look back, make me feel beautiful.
My family is pretty quirky and Joyce has an awesome sense of humour. When I look through the photos of the groom and the groomsmen getting ready, you can see that they had a great time, and most of them detest having their photo taken as a general rule. We have some great quality, fun images that I wouldn’t change for the world.
I was so impressed with Joyce’s eye for photography and timing. One of my favourite photos is where my husband and I were sitting after the ceremony and after the bulk of the post ceremony photos were taken. We thought Joyce was changing lenses and she got a beautiful shot of me resting on his shoulder.
I definitely recommend the photo booth! It was fun to be a part of and it was even more fun going through the photos and seeing what all our friends had been up to in there! Not to mention the kids who all dressed up and looked like little superstars!
All in all, if you want dull or unimpressive photographs, or a boring and disengaged photographer, Joyce is not for you.
I could not have asked for anything or anyone better. We ended up with great results and had fun having Joyce as a part of our wedding day.
I would recommend Joyce van Dijk Wedding Photography to anyone.

Liah and Job
Working with Joyce was such a wonderful experience. It was easy working with her. The photos came out exactly how I want my wedding photos to be. We are so happy to have her as our photographer on our special day. I highly recommend Joyce and her expetise in photography.

Ben and Brenda Bruce
I highly recommend the use of Joyce Van Dijk of ID Photography / Joyce van Dijk Wedding Photographyfor anyone who wants to capture the perfection of their special day. We had Joyce shoot our wedding and cannot be happier. Joyce and her assistant were a wonderful addition to our day. The photos that we received from our wedding reflected the absolute magic that we felt that day. Our greatest thanks to Joyce for helping us to share and remember our day through the photos that she took.

Warmest regards,
Ben and Brenda Bruce

Megan and Sam
Hi Joyce
It’s Tammy, Megans Mum. I am just writing to say how delighted I am with the work you did on the photography of Megan and Sams wedding photos.Like all young couples with a baby they were on a tight budget but I stressed the importance of the wedding photgraphy as to me now the event is over this is all we have to show for the day. You really captured the true beauty of the day in your work. I also recognise you worked flat out the whole time we had you to ensure we got what we wanted. You excelled.
Thank you
Tammy and Byron Dodd

Andrew & Kirsty
We were absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. Joyce was generous with her time, enthusiastic and took particular care to understand the style and look of the photographs that we wanted. We loved her attention to detail and artistic flair, as well as her ability to work within a tight timeframe with a sense of humour. Her passion for photography and knowledge of the local area resulted in some stunning images that we will treasure dearly. 
Andrew & Kirsty

Brad and Tania Pearsons
Joyce we are speechless, our photos are beautiful. It was awesome going through them as you had taken so many shots of the smaller things that we had forgotten about. You have given us wonderful memories that we will always remember. You have done an aweome job and we are recommending you to our friends and family if they need a photographer for any occassion. You spent so many hours taking photos and we thank you dearly for that. You didn’t miss anything. You also took photos of each couple at their tables, they will also enjoy viewing them. Our day was about love and sharing our special day with our families and friends and you captured all of that. Once again thank you so much. Mr and Mrs Pearsons x

Matt and Neoni Hanssen
Joyce was our wedding photographer in April 2012. She did a fantastic job! She is very professional, hard working and was always prompt on replying to my emails or calls. We managed to get a package that fitted into our budget, and we were very happy with the end results. Joyce definitely goes the extra mile to get that perfect shot and to make sure you are happy with everything. Her passion for wedding photography shows in her work. We have just put some framed pictures up in the house, and everyone loves them! Thanks again Joyce!

Kelli & Robbie- Wedding at the Desert Park Alice Springs
They say passion is the key to success! Well our wedding photo’s were a huge success thanks to Joyce’s passion. Aside from her amazing technical ability and artistic flair, her enthusiasm was second to none! She was so generous with her time before, during and after our special day, which put my mind at ease and gave me great confidence. There was no long wait to receive our photos after the wedding, our beautiful memories were ready in no time at all. Photography is not just a hobby on the side for Joyce, it is her life and it reflects beautifully in her work.
Thanks again Joyce.

Matt & Hayley
Thank you Joyce for beautiful photos Matt and I are extremely happy with the end result every memory of our fabulous day captured to perfection.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our experience fun and stress free, your professionalism is amazing and your love for photography is evident in your work. You should be very proud of what you have achieved Joyce I’ll be showing these photos off for decades to come..

Scott and Clare
Choosing Joyce to shoot our wedding was a fairly easy process. We met her at the wedding expo in August 2011 and loved her enthusiasm and positive attitude not to mention her fantastic photography on display. We are both laid back people and found that Joyce fitted in very well and was not intrusive on our most special day but captured everything and more we discussed with her prior. I cannot recommend her higher as a photographer but also as a fun person to have around so thank you Joyce for capturing many special moments of our wedding day, the memories are priceless!!! Scott Golding

Katie and Grant
As we were planning our wedding I went along to the wedding expo and saw Joyce’s work, I was taken back at how amazing her work was. Unfortunately with two kids we were on a tight budget but after talking to her she helped me work out a budget that worked for the both of us! :)
On the day of the wedding as I was getting ready she made us laugh at the positions she was getting herself into to get that perfect picture, I seemed to relax after that!
On the day of my wedding there was a heap of smoke in the sky which made everyone look orange in pictures (of our friends and family) but
Luckily Joyce went through each one of her photos to perfectly colour balance every one of them which I am so greatly for.
Joyce you are an amazing photographer, my new house is filled with your beautiful art and your an amazing person, thank you so much!

Elena and Harley
We feel so fortunate that Joyce van Dijk accepted my invitation to photograph our wedding.  The images she took, captured the essence of our wedding and who we are as a couple and indeed our whole family.  Joyce herself was a complete delight and she felt like a friend taking part in our special day.  A true professional, we cannot recommend Joyce highly enough.  The photographs are truly remarkable, highlighting the beauty of the Australian Outback.  We are thrilled with the results and have the memories of our special day transformed into stunning photographs that will one day ‘wow our grandchildren’.  A very grateful thank you to you Joyce

Rebecca en Xavier
We choose Joyce as the photographer for our big day as she came highly recommended by the wedding planner at Ayers Rock resort. Joyce exceeded all of our expectations from day one from the initial phone call to discuss our requirements to the actual photographs she took on the day. She took us to some amazing spots that we wouldn’t have even dreamed of going to and the photography was simply amazing. We had such great fun with Joyce that we even invited her along to sit with us at our table during the reception dinner ‘Sounds of Silence’. Joyce went above and beyond what I would have expected a wedding photographer to do and as a result we have some fantastic photographs that we will cherish for ever. Definitely 11/10 for Joyce!

Aileen Marsceill
I met Joyce this summer at my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding. She came half-way around the globe to shoot their wedding, which was my first indication that she was pretty incredible! She was constantly snapping photos, not wanting to miss a moment!!! She made me feel extremely comfortable and very at ease!! She is an amazing professional with considerable compassion!!! She will most definitely capture your most beautiful moments!

Eva Sarr
Joyce is a photographer with a unique eye. She approaches jobs with professionalism and captures special moments for her clients with flair. I imagine reading and seeing a lot more in the future about this up and coming artist.

Mario and Christine – got married at Longitude 131 – Ayers Rock
Resort
The best eye for flair, detail and creativity I have encountered in a photographer.
The artistry in our wedding shots surpassed our expectations. Joyce’s professionalism is only matched by her warmth, she makes you feel so at ease that you feel like you are old friends catching up. If you need special moments on a special day captured, Joyce will uncover ones you would not have otherwise thought of. Joyce; Christine and I remember our experience with you fondly and are so glad that we chose you, thanks for doing such an amazing job!! If you’re ever in Brisbane and need a place to crash, you know who to call… (just to be clear, that would be us!).
Mario & Christine

Leah Farmer
My daughter who used to live in Alice (and worked with Joyce) recommended Joyce as the photographer for our other daughter’s wedding here in the states. We signed a contract and flew Joyce to the USA. We hadn’t ever met her and were taking our chances on an unknown photographer, but we were very pleased with her personality, pictures, and especially the time she took to take absolutely beautiful pictures in NH in July 2011. Details that most photographers would miss, Joyce made sure were addressed. We highly recommend Joyce and would hire her again if we had another daughter getting married.
(Joyce… Miss ya…come back to visit ANYTIME!! )

Emaly Scholefield (Josif)
if you’re looking for a professional photographer who will create fantastic memories of your special occasion Joyce is who you are looking for! Joyce creates such a rapport with her clients that she will know what you want without you needing to say a word. On my wedding day not only did she help me to stay relaxed and focused but she went with the flow of my day so that the photos were a seamless feature rather than an obtrusive interruption. A wonderful photographer and a great friend.

Jane Josif, Mother of the bride
I can highly recommend Joyce van Dijk to be the artist of choice for your big day. She is passionate about her craft, she gives her all to get the shot, works tirelessly with the bride and groom to achieve the memories they want recorded from the day . You won’t be disappointed ~ we weren’t

Meg Simone, Videographer NH-USA www.megsimone.com
Joyce – thank you so much :) Likewise, it was such a treat to work with you. Your enthusiasm was contagious! Great to see your “eye” on the White Mountains.
I love their engagement photos too! So cool! I hope we get the chance to work together again. It was so much fun to work with you. I hope to make it back to Australia some day – your landscape photos have been an inspiration :)

Andrew and Yeong – married at Ayers Rock Resort

Her pics speak million & billion words… Speechless! Me & my wife are very grateful & thankful for Joyce’s presence at our wedding. We met her only as our photographer, but by the time we said good bye, she was our friend… a friend we respect & adore. She is a photographer of extreme professionalism, with a twist of craziness :P Thanks to her, our wedding photos are far beyond our expectation! Simply, check out her blogs & her portfolio… her photos indeed tell the whole story. :)

Jane and Dean -married at Kings Canyon Resort
This wedding was made all the more perfect by Joyce! Dean and I were married in Kings Canyon, NT in April 10. Joyce (ID Photography) was so approachable and agreeable to making the 4 hour trek up there to do the photography for our special day (p.s. we eloped!) Having her as part of our day was so much fun as her personality was really open and warm and expressive. She made us so comfortable and so the shots turned out natural, spontaneous and vibrant (we are the two sitting on the boardwalk)- coupled with her experience and award winning shots you’d be mad to not to use Joyce as your photographer, I promise it will be the best decision you will make about your pending wedding!

Dion and Kelley – Married at Ooraminna Homestead Alice Springs
Above and beyond the call of duty I have had the pleasure of sharing the 2 most important experiences of my life with Joyce. In April 2009, we hired Joyce to photograph our wedding at Ooraminna Homestead Alice Springs. The photos are just amazing, absolutely EVERYONE I know loves them. My biggest problem was choosing which ones to enlarge & put into albums. My second experience with Joyce was the journey through my first pregnancy in the first half of 2010. Joyce photographed me on a monthly basis, with the finale being my baby boy at 4 weeks old. The end result simply stunning. And again, EVERYONE wanted copies, but couldn’t decide which photograph from the large selection of fantastic images. I would not hesitate in recommending Joyce to anyone looking at capturing a very special moment in their lives. I want to assure you all that I am no relation to Joyce, however we have become great friends as result of the time we have shared. I would be happy to provide you with more details & image examples if you care to e-mail me at kell110783@hotmail.com.

Mark and Rita – Married in Hong Kong Wedding Shoot in Alice springs
Passionate photographer with eye for detail I was fortunate to contract ID Photography for a shoot while in Alice Springs. We did all preparation for the shoot remote and the whole event worked like a charm. I have seldom encountered a photographer with so much passion and eye for detail. Joyce obviously knows Alice Springs and surroundings very well and has scouted many great locations to take unique and special photos. Needless to say we were very happy with the results….and the service. Highly recommended!
