  • 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!

Last weekend, Kyle and I decided to be spontaneous.  I had recently mentioned to Kyle that I had seen photos of Wave Rock on my Instagram feed and it looked soooo cool!  So, we booked a rental car, borrowed a tent & drove into the Outback for a little adventure.  We had an awesome time playing like kids on Wave Rock & witnessing the most beautiful night sky!  Here are a few photos from the trip…

He’s so proud that he put the tent together.  In the dark.  In less than 15 minutes.:)

I forgot my tripod in the U.S., so we had to make do with a little jimmy-rigging… After this weekend, I’m determined to learn more about night photography.  I mean, look at these stars.  So gorgeous!

Tidal Waaaaave (Rock)!  Cheesy, I know.

The perfect shooting angle, according to Mr. Goodwin…

The only surfing I’ve done in Australia…;)

Racing against the self-timer.  I won.  Every.  Single.  Time.

More self-timer goofiness… check out those ballin’ green socks!

My husband seriously cracks me up!  I mean, who rocks up in a wetsuit & flippers just for a photo?!  PS, This was allllll his idea!  No coercing involved.;)

If you’re in WA and looking for a fun weekend away from the city, I highly recommend checking Wave Rock out (Especially now while the weather is cool & the flies are minimal).  We weren’t really sure what to expect or whether the drive would be worth it– but it totally was!  Between the stargazing, BBQ-ing, playing at Wave Rock & hiking, our impromptu trip was one I will never forget.

Are you on Instagram?  Follow me @rebeccajoyphotos to see what we’re up to Down Under!

In an effort to be healthier, I decided about a week and a half ago to start biking to work.  It only took me four months to finally start tackling that New Year’s Resolution!  Haha.  Better late than never, I suppose.  The first day felt like an adventure and was so invigorating.  Now that I’m pushing week two, it’s a little less exciting and a little more of a chore.  However, I do have more energy during the day and I am feeling healthier overall.  Here’s hoping I can keep this up!;)

Midway into Week 1, Kyle and I decided to go for a sunset ride around Swan River.  We packed a little picnic and hopped on the bike trail.  What a beautiful evening and a beautiful sunset…

(PS, These are all unedited.  Woot!)

Heyyyy, husband! ;)  I’m so sneaky!


How are your New Year’s Resolutions going?  I’ve failed at the one-book-per-month goal, but I’m hoping to make up for lost time when I’m on holiday in July!:)
