  • G’day! My name is Rebecca Joy.

    Some call me Rebecca, others "Becks," & my Dad lovingly refers to me as "Beckaroo." Take your pick! When I'm not behind my camera or working my day job (I double as an accountant), you can find me at the beach, snuggling up with my furbaby or learning to be a domestic diva.

    I love being married, photographing you getting married, and being able to tell your story after the vows.

    Thank you for stopping by & I can't wait to meet you!

Since moving to Oz, the entirety of our holidays have been spent visiting our loved ones back in the US (which was fantastic!).  This year, however, our #1 resolution is to see more of this side of the globe.  I figure if we adventure someplace different at least once a month, we’ll cover a lot of ground by the time 2016 rolls around.

January’s adventure was about an hour & a half north of Perth to sunny+sandy Lancelin.  We had an absolute blast 4WDing in the famous sand dunes and even gave sand boarding a go!  (These first few snaps were taken with my iPhone)

I’m pretty sure the best day of Lucy’s life (aside from when we adopted her;)) was the day she got to run free around the dunes.

This post is like a 2-for-1 on the adventure front because we also drove out to see The Pinnacles while we were in the general vicinity.  It took roughly an hour to get from the heart of Lancelin to Nambung National Park, but it was totally worth it.  I highly recommend going the hour before sunset–the light cascading across the limestone formations is MONEY!

Coming from a family of history buffs, there was no way we could miss stopping by Pearl Harbor whilst in Hawaii last year.  I had been to Oahu once before, but this was my first visit to the historic site.  If I’m being honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect–and I most certainly did not anticipate all of the emotions that standing amongst the U.S.S. Arizona wreckage stirred up inside of me.  This was one of those experiences where the vastness of our world and the history of those here before us became achingly apparent– so apparent that the only thing to do was be still and try to take it all in.
