Could not have asked for anything more!

To my husband and I, finding a photographer was the most important vendor for us. After all, the wedding photos last a lifetime. We met with Pala via facetime because we're in Ontario and she was in Kelowna. As soon as we met, we knew she was the one we wanted to capture our day. She was super chill, a free spirit, easy to talk to and hilarious! We met her to do our engagement photos and we could not stop laughing. The photos turned out amazing and we could not stop talking about how much fun we had. Fast forward to the wedding day, I was super excited to see her again. It felt like I was waiting to see a friend I hadn't seen in awhile. Everyone, and I mean everyone, who attended our wedding had nothing but positive things to say! She was funny, outgoing and made sure to take pictures of all the couples which I thought was a great touch! She was efficient and the sneak peaks we saw blew us away. Her photography skills are top notch and I can't wait to see the rest of our photos. We had several guests come up to us and ask us where we found her because they had such great interactions with her! She brought a second shooter who was starting out and it was great having her around as well! I can't wait to see what she was able to capture. If you're looking for a photographer who puts you at ease, makes you look smoking hot and is just fun to be around, you've found it here with Pala and her team!

The Best Lady Around!

Pala is an absolute gem to work with! We had done a couple photoshoots previously and had a great time. She was an absolute blast at our wedding, we had fun, she had fun. Highly recommend Pala if you can book with her!

So much fun and amazing photos!!

As a photographer myself I had really high standards for who would take our wedding photos and so I knew Pala would be the perfect person for the job. Her work is fantastic and her style of vibrant, true to life colors was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. She is also just an amazing, funny and wonderful human and it was so lovely to have her with us on our big day. She did such a great job making everyone laugh and keeping things organized during family photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Very Disappointed

We were so excited to hire Pala when we first started planning our wedding. Her portfolio is gorgeous, she seemed incredible to work with and very fun and personable. She has lots of amazing reviews, I didn't expect things to go so wrong with her.
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.

Spectacular heli-wedding photographer!

We had a fantastic experience with Pala as our photographer for our heli-wedding in Revelstoke. She was on point during the planning process and great at helping to sort out the day-of itinerary. Pala is assertive and has great energy which led to SPECTACULAR photos. We would highly recommend taking advantage of her video products too.

Hands down, the person you want around. . .

Hands down, the person you want around for all the special occasions.

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.

Engagement and Wedding Photos

Pala did our engagement photos and they were so amazing that we hired her again for our wedding. She is so easy going and fun to work with. She captures the necessities as well as even more epic candid shots that turn out to be your absolute favourites. She made the experience so fun that I actually want to do more photo shoots with her just for the heck of it!

The most magical and perfect day captured by Pala!

We first hired Pala for family pictures which turned out incredible and more than I expected! Our experience with her was so fun and amazing the first time that we knew she was the one we wanted to capture our wedding. We hired her for our elopement and we were not disappointed! The day was everything we dreamed of and more, and she caught it all on camera and for that I am forever grateful! She is the best!!!!!

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!
