  • 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!

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.

Meet Sunny+Adam.

They are one of the most generous, lovable, hilarious duos you could ever know!  Friends and family came from all over the globe to celebrate their commitment to one another –so, you know I’m not lying about their awesomeness!

I could go on for days about how great these two are, but you’d get bored reading & my fingers would get tired typing.;)  So instead, scroll down to take a peek at their perfect wedding day…

Sunny, her bridesmaids & both sets of parents all got ready for the big day at Adam’s parents’ house in the Hills.  It was a beautifully overcast day –perfect for photos!

The entire bridal party (including me!) wore cowboy boots for the occasion.  How pretty are the ladies’ kicks?!

One of Sunny’s great talents is creating beautiful pottery (as you will soon see), so I snuck down to her studio and photographed the rings on her wheel.

While the ladies were busy putting on the finishing touches, the dads (+ Koko) enjoyed the great outdoors and technology.:)

I love the moment when a groom first sees his bride walking down the aisle.

Remember that pottery wheel I mentioned?  For the past year, Sunny has been hand-crafting and perfecting these beauties for her guests to take home with them.  Mine’s the cute mug in the front!;)

The food at their reception venue was sooo good!  These little tempura prawns were at the top of everyone’s list for the night!
