In the 6th grade, I was fortunate enough to go on a field trip to Washington DC. I had $100 in spending cash that I saved. I spent all $100 on film for my camera. Literally every penny. I was the only kid who came back with hundreds and hundreds of photos! Even at 11 years old, the thought of not having anything to remember my once in a lifetime event, didn't sit well with me.
Like most photographers, I have an artistic background, and love to create, draw, paint etc. In high school I majored in art and even won several awards for my talents. I love drawing, but not for a living. After a little soul searching, I decided to channel my inner 11 year old self, and put the two together.
Today, I am a successful photographer, specializing in weddings for the past 10 years, and more passionate than ever. I have won the Wedding Wire Couples Choice award 5 years straight 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019. I have also been, and continue to be published in Buffalo Wedding Magazine, including the cover and various other local publications. I have even been published in 2 national hairstyle magazines for my work with a local salon.
Joe Lewis Photography is husband/wife team and I couldn't imagine doing this creative journey any other way. My wife Tina and I love to work together, and provide an amazing, relaxed, stress free and fun experience for all of our couples!
