Family Owned Boutique Studio since 2002.
My name is Joe Kuan and I am the creative director of Joie Elie Photography & Cinematography. At the beginning of 2012, my wife- Vickie and I make a major decision to re-brand our company name from VIG Designers LLC to Joie Elie photography, named after our beloved two daughters Joie and Elie. At the 10th anniversary of our wonderful marriage, my vision is that Joie Elie Photography is a boutique studio owned by the family with a personal touch and always keeps the next generation in mind (after all, we only have one earth). In order to provide you with the best visual service, we continue to train and team up with commemorative and award-winning visual artists who are highly skilled in photography and cinematography productions. If you know any young and emerging photographers who are looking forward to joining an amazing team, we would really appreciate that you refer them our way, thank you in advance!
[Something about me, in case you are curious…]
I received my master of fine art degree in media studies from Syracuse University and worked in the most demanding Silicon Alley (the advertising district in downtown Manhattan) right after graduation in 1999. As a 911 survivor, my wife and I founded VIG Designers LLC in February 2002 to provide commercial photography, graphic design and multimedia production service to business and educational institute. Combined with the strong academic training and hands-on experience in visual production, we are committed to serving you with honesty and integrity. It is our expertise to transform your day into a heartfelt, handsomely made a visual presentation.
Our five-star photography and cinematography service is unique and personal. If you like what you see on our website, we would love to meet with you and show you more. You’ll find a friendly zero-pressure atmosphere where we chat about your wedding, view the most trendy albums and watch high definition movies!
We firmly believe that all human desire is unfailing love. It is amazing. Just simply by seeing a picture or a video clip of someone, your brain instantly makes the connection to the most memorable things about them. Life goes on unscripted. As your family historians, we look forward to being part of your every major milestone in life and immortalizing your best memories in time.
