  • 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!

Penguin Island

This Saturday was the hottest day of the year in Perth, topping out at a whopping 43*C (roughly 109*F).  What did we do to beat the heat?  Scroll down to find out!;)

The sun was shining, the skies were blue and the water was crystal clear– could we be any luckier?!

Kyle & I thought these “natural jacuzzis” were pretty awesome!

If you haven’t noticed from previous posts, I like climbing stuff.:)

We did quite a bit of snorkeling on this side of the island… so calm, clear & beautiful!

And finally… what’s a place called “Penguin Island” without their namesake, the Little Penguin?!  The little guy below, Lou, is the oldest penguin on the island– can you believe he’s 20 years old??

Hope you enjoyed some iPhone snaps from our little adventure day!  If you’re interested in visiting Penguin Island, here’s a link to their site.

October In An Instagram

Last month was a big one for us.  We moved out of our 10th floor city apartment into a lovely, spacious home in the ‘burbs.  While I can’t speak for Kyle, I am absolutely loving our new place!  I also especially love that our suburb is named “Innaloo.”  Tehehe…

Here’s the Instagram highlight reel of our October:
