  • My name is Rebecca Joy. My husband Kyle and I have recently gotten married & relocated to Perth, Western Australia after spending the whole of our lives in Indiana. When I'm not behind my camera or working my day job (I double as an accountant!), you can find me at the beach, trying a new-to-me outdoor activity, snuggling up with the hubs 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!

Crikey! I’ve got some BIG NEWS!

Hi, friends!  I’ve been staring at this blank screen for a while, trying to figure out the perfect way to share some pretty huge news with you all.  I’m just going to go with the “Band-aid method” — say it real quick & it will be over before I realize it. ;)

 

I’M MOVING TO AUSTRALIA!!!!!

 

Phew!  Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll do a little explaining.  :)  If you’ve been following the blog this past year, you know that my fiancé moved to Australia last fall.  In that time, he was able to turn a 2-month contract job into a full-time position, with Visa sponsorship.  I can’t even express how proud I am of him!

After our wedding this August, we’re hopping on a plane and starting married life off with a big adventure in Perth!

What does this mean for Rebecca Joy Photography, you may ask?

To be honest, I’m not really sure yet!  I’ve been blessed with wonderful clients from the start, so I’m sad to be leaving you all.  I hope that I’m able to carry RJP over to the Australian market.  If not, you’ll be seeing lots of gorgeous travel photos on this blog until we move back.

How long will you live in Perth?

Kyle’s work Visa has a 4-year maximum… so, we can be there up to 4 years.  It will all depend on the state of the US & AUS economies, as well as how much we miss home.

Will you be taking on sessions leading up to your wedding?

Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  I’m so excited to photograph Kristen+Niel’s wedding in a couple weeks, as well as another Aflac corporate event!

Which leads me to my next point…

If you would like to take advantage of this last-chance session offer, please shoot me a message on the “contact” form or email me directly:  hello@rebeccajoyphotos.com

Thank you to all of my lovely clients, supporters & blog readers for helping to turn my dream into a reality!  I hope you continue to stop by my little blog and see what we’re up to in the “Land Down Under!”

Much love, friends!

-Rebecca

I shot this quick engagement session with my sister & her fiancé after Kim’s bridal shower.  We snuck out in the backyard for about 20 minutes & found some absolutely gorgeous light!  Without further ado, my amazing big sis & her future husband Mike…

This needs to be on a canvas… just sayin’;)

Hellooooo, blue eyes!!

Kim & Mike– I can’t wait until your big day!  We’re going to have fuuuuun! :). Love you two!
