The Best Lady Around!
Amazing and fun!
So much fun and amazing photos!!
We came from out of town to do our engagement photos with her in Kelowna and she seemed overworked and tired. When we did get our photos back, they were not composed well (photos were not framed nicely, our feet were cut out of frame, a lot of space above our heads, etc.) and they look like they were all put through one filter.
We asked for more photos and Pala responded by saying that she can't afford to pay her editor to send us more of our photos. She did eventually send a few more that she edited herself but I still didn't like them. out of the 100+ photos that we got, there were only about 12 that we liked.
During the shoot she spoke a lot about how she wants to retire by the time she's 30 and how many shoots she's been doing. She was overworked and her quality showed that. What I received did not reflect what she shows in her portfolio.
She had also mentioned that she does not get along with any videographer in Kelowna except one. She recommended a brand new videographer with 3 weddings under his belt that she never actually worked with. We were disappointed at the lack of professionalism we saw and the lack of quality in our photos. Although the reviews are true that she's very personable and good at direction, we did not trust her to take photos of our wedding.
Incredible wedding photos
Spectacular heli-wedding photographer!
Hands down, the person you want around. . .
Pala, Pala, Pala.
We've made a life long friend in her, hands down she has the magic to connect with anyone. We were comfortable within minutes and throughout the whole shoot, she held space for us to be ourselves; be ourselves we did. And it totes comes through in the pictures. She captured us and our love so organically that the people we showed her work to thought she was a long time friend of ours. But the honest to god truth is we met her that day - we are honored to have met and worked with Pala, she has a gift photography (and so much more if you get chatting with her)
We have a photographer for all our future needs . . . We will continue to work with Pala for all our photography needs.

I’m an extremely extroverted wedding photographer living in Kelowna who loves life and all things adventure. I grew up in Pemberton, north of Whistler, BC. My home is deep in the bush, during the winter you need 4×4 to get there.
If I’m not in the mountains horseback, then I’m definitely on a snowboard. My down-time is spent hiking, paddling, and fishing with my pup and my better half.
I’m an early riser and a go-getter. My passion for food is both a blessing and a curse; so is my deep love for great beer. I’ll listen to anything, but rock'n'roll has my soul. Usually, I’m listening to podcasts or a book on the topic that interests me that week.
I absolutely love to learn things and meet people. I truly want to know everything there is to know about you and be your friend for a long time coming.
I can't wait to connect!
