Tula Joy Photography



Lifestyle, portraiture, wedding and engagement photography based in Columbiana, Ohio.


I am a playful photographer whose passion is to create real moments where personalities, quirks, & relationships are top priority. I want you to remember your people not just in this moment, but in this season of life. As a mama, I know how precious this moment is. I watch my babies sprout out of clothes, coos, & all the stages in the blink of an eye. One day my baby was calling me mommy & then overnight I became mom. & its important to capture this. To capture his upper body trying to keep up with his feet as he throws himself forward, launching himself towards his brother. I want to remember everything. I don't want to let a phase slip through my grasp that I forget, & so I take my heart into every session, exploring your relationship, personality, whatever it is & letting the beauty of what's natural take the lead.


Hi, I am Sam

You are family

Tula Joy was the first little love we lost before holding in our arms, the first in our little family to plant her roots in heaven. To start our family business in Tula's name has made a flourishing take the place of something Satan meant to be a place of destruction & lifelessness. & believe me, there is so much life, if the photos aren't proof enough of how incredibly blessed we are by our clients. You are more than part of our business, you are part of our family. & for that, we thank you.


Thank you,
