Who We Are
Patrick is the director of operations for a national provider of government required state and federal labor law and OSHA safety posters. He is also a licensed financial services professional, fully committed to help Americans build better financial futures, one family at a time. His goal is to serve the financial needs of individuals and families typically overlooked and underserved by the financial services industry. Joy is a Registered Nurse with a heart towards saving people’s lives. Her dreams extends beyond serving her patients, and hopes of one day establishing her own school, health center, and church where she could reach out to so much more of those in need in her community, especially children.
Patrick is an alumnus of UCLA, where he took up Biology and Geography, and is a member of Gardena High School‘s class of 2001 – the “Last (Freshmen Class) of the Mohicans”. He is currently a student of the Bible and serves as an assistant pastor at his church. Joy earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Dr. Carlos Lanting College in the Philippines.
Their mission is to spread the love of God through building meaningful relationships with others, while at the same time sharing their own colorful stories in order to bless others.
When they’re not doing photo-booth, Patrick and Joy spend their time taking care of their now 3 year old son. They also enjoy the outdoors through sightseeing and traveling. They enjoy cooking and eating, singing karaoke, and meeting new people. They also spend many hours in their financial ministry, as they teach financial concepts and techniques to help families get a better grasp of how money works, and therefore plan better for their financial future.
Joyfully Yours Productions began in 2013 and is the realization of a dream to bring to Southern California this type of photo-booth experience; high quality, spacious, and of course, super fun, that Patrick experienced while vacationing in the Philippines to attend a wedding during his college days in the mid 2000’s.
Not having the resources at the time to start his own photo-booth, his dream finally came to life in early 2013 during a conversation with his then girlfriend, Joy. She told him that she had a dream that they owned and operated a photo-booth rental service. He immediately remembered his first photo-booth experience during that wedding in the Philippines and immediately began putting together what is now Joyfully Yours Productions. Joy, on the other hand, has witnessed countless weddings being the daughter of a pastor.
Having attended so many weddings in just a span of 1-year, Patrick became so inspired that he finally asked for Joy’s hand in marriage. And until this very day, bringing a smile to people’s faces still brings so much JOY to the loving couple.
