Analisa Joy Photography
Lake Cuyamaca, CA
Hello, my name is Analisa Joy, I am 22 years old, and I have been a lifestyle and wedding photographer since 2010. This engagement session has become one of my all time favorites. Aaron and Kristina have been dating for 3 years and they are as sweet as can be. I absolutely love it when my clients incorporate their creative touches into their session and I couldn’t ask for a better couple when Aaron and Kristina arrived with a handful of cute props and outfits. We began our session out in the wilderness where Aaron and Kristina sipped on some sweet tea while cozied up on a blanket. We then ventured out toward the lake where their playful side came out. These two were so much fun to be around and their energy was such a joy to capture. The session ended with a beautiful sunset where I was able to capture some of my favorite shots to date. I can’t wait to see what this couple has in store for me when I photograph their wedding in April of 2013.
I knew that I needed to put my heart and soul into photography if I wanted to be successful. I quit all my side jobs in 2010 and I decided to fully enter into the world of photography and take it by storm. I am thankful that I did because I have received many blessings along the way! With hundreds of entries I was proclaimed the winner of Pinhole Pro’s photography online contest in 2011. I was also declared their grand prize winner of Pinhole Pro’s workshop/portfolio contest in 2011. While interning with celebrity photographer Robert Evans, I received the privilege to tag along with him and shoot at country A-Listers, Miranda Lambert’s & Blake Shelton’s wedding in 2011. I was Pastor Dr. David Jeremiah’s and Tim Tebow the QB of the Denver Bronco’s, personal photographer at Shadow Mountain Church’s Fathers Day service at Qualcomm Stadium in 2012. My work has been published in wedding/bridal magazine, The Knot 2013 Spring/Summer Southern California! No matter what it is, I believe that God has put beauty into everything around me and I love to look back at the photographs I’ve taken only to have Him remind me of that. Life is short and I aim to capture every moment of it, for myself, my loved ones, and anyone else I am lucky enough to meet!
