I am a St. Louis Missouri based Photographer and love capturing the beauty of this thing called life. Weddings, Engagements, Graduations, Family are a few of my favorites along with doing HDR Photography and Landscapes just for the beauty. , I'm extremely out going with a lot of energy and love working with clients to capture those special moments in life.
I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell my stories.

Joyce Burris was born in St. Louis, raised in Kinloch, and in junior high was introduced to the works of Gordon Parks, photographer through a field trip to the St. Louis Art museum. A practical woman, she did not see leaving home and becoming a photographer as a viable option. She began working at Barnes Hospital as a nurse assistant and moved to St. Johns’ Mercy and became a Central Service Technician. After obtaining certification as an educator and manager Joyce Burris became the instructor for the Central Service Course at Forest Park Community College. She developed programs to help bolster the education of Central Service Technicians and began speaking at regional and international Central Service Conferences. But along the way she took photography classes, bought a 35mm camera, and while living in Seattle, WA exhibited at "Art/Not Terminal."
After nineteen years in Seattle,Joyce moved back to St. Louis County and discovered the Good Shepherd Arts Center with a similar mission. Their brick and mortar gallery closed due to the pandemic. Therefore, this exhibit was moved to online.
