Why hello 2015…fancy meeting you here.

I can’t believe another year has passed.  2014 was filled with so many great memories both personal and professional.  I had such a great time meeting new clients and reconnecting with old ones.  I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store!

So what will 2015 bring?  I know one thing it will bring…..do you want to know what it is…well it is a…….new look to Alana Joy Photography!  That is right….AJP is getting a facelift. Don’t worry I’m not getting a facelift…I look awesome already…haha.  However my website, blog, Facebook…etc. will all get a new fresh look!  It will take a little while as I am still in the beginning stages but make sure to keep your eyes open here for updates.

What else will 2015 bring….well it will bring weddings!  For those of you who don’t know I have been expanding into the Wedding Photography field over the last year or two and this year I am so excited with all the couples I have booked so far.  There will be fairy lights, lakefront views, flowers…and the most gorgeous brides!  You will totally want to check back for those posts.

I will also have a few personal blog posts about what is going on in my life.  It will be a great way to get to know me a little better.  I hope you will continue to check in here and my Facebook too of course.  I am also on Pinterest if any of you love it as much as I do you can find me here!  Also I am on Instagram too…this is more of a personal look into my life and you can find me here.

Well here is wishing you all the best in 2015!  I hope to see you around.

Now I will leave you with a few of my favourite photos of 2014…

Mike & Stacey Wedding ~ Barkley Brook Gardens, Fort Langley

Can you say FUN?  Well that is what Mike & Stacey’s wedding was….pure FUN!  I met Stacey through a mutual friend and right away I knew I HAD to shoot her wedding.  Both Mike and Stacey are easy going people.  I had a total blast at their wedding!!  They had their wedding at the beautiful Barkley Brook Gardens in Fort Langley.  This place was perfect for this wedding that had some country flare to it.  There is a huge pond….so big that you can take out a row boat!  Here are some photographs of their FUN day.

Ashley & Scott Wedding ~ La Punta Norte, Summerland, BC

When I say these two might be the cutest couple ever I truly mean it.  They are both just so sweet and I had an amazing time photographing their wedding!  I can’t thank them enough for allowing me to capture their special day.

The wedding was held at the fabulous La Punta Norte in Summerland, BC.  This venue is amazing, it has a great background for both the ceremony and reception.  Plus they are a B&B and you can even stay right on site which makes things so easy.  If you are in the Okanagan and don’t know what venue you might choose, I suggest you check out La Punta Norte as it might just be what you are looking for.

As you can see from the pictures below the day was amazing.  They made so many of the decorations themselves with the help of some amazing friends.  Also their wedding coordinator Kylie Rodger who is one of their amazing friends was so sweet and so helpful.  I really had a blast at this wedding, the atmosphere was so relaxed.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed capturing their special day!

W is ONE ~ Summerland, BC

When I was up shooting a wedding in Summerland, BC I had the opportunity to photograph this little guy again……but he’s not as little as he once was.  It was his 1st Birthday and I was there to help celebrate and capture this special moment.

Absolute Cutie-pies ~ Vancouver, BC

Cutie-pies….it’s a word right?  Well if it is not then I am making it one right now as these adorable sisters are just cutie-pies!  Another client of mine referred me to this family and I had the pleasure of photographing this family in Vancouver and I had so much fun.  These parents worked hard for the smiles in these pictures…there was jumping, clapping and even singing.  Their little girls loved it!
