Senior Session: Ashley | Pacific Beach, CA | Analisa Joy Photography | San Diego, CA Photographer

Check out my recent and oh so beautiful senior, Ashley! Ashley is  your all around high school superstar. She does well in school and is an awesome gymnast. I even made her show me some tricks on the beach during her session. Ashley was recently accepted into her dream school, Baylor, and she is counting down the days until she gets to start a new chapter in her life. The last time I saw Ashley was three years ago when I photographed her family. She was a young girl with braces excited about the adventures of high school. When I saw her for her senior shoot, I couldn’t believe how mature she has become. She is such an amazing young lady and I love the joy and positivity that she carries with her. It is contagious and it made our session so much fun. I’m excited to see what is in store for this bright and ambitious senior. Congrats Ashley!

She is such a beauty!

My favorite!

In love with these next few shots.

Representing her new college! 

I loved that her entire family showed up on her session. They are one encouraging bunch.
She is blessed to have so many supportive loved ones in her life. I had to squeeze them in!

Congrats Ashley!

Engagement Session: Bucky & Whitney | Jamul, CA | Analisa Joy Photography | San Diego, CA Photography

Wow, where do I even begin? I could go on and on when it comes to bragging about Bucky and Whitney. This couple gave me some serious abs after our session because they kept me laughing for two hours straight. I love the love that these two share. They are so goofy and playful with one another and it was so much fun being able to capture it on camera. Whitney loves the country look so they grabbed their cowboy boots and we headed to one of my favorite shooting locations in Jamul. White rusty fences, gorgeous light, vibrant green trees, and a setting that takes you away from the city/coast life of San Diego. Whitney’s cousin (and my good friend), Riley tagged along and accessorized this bride-to-be with amazing Chloe and Isabel jewelry pieces. The countdown is on and I can’t wait until Bucky and Whitney tie the knot. It’s going to be such a fun day and I am thankful I am able to capture these special moments along their journey. Congrats Bucky and Whitney!

Engagement Session: Kyle & Rachel, Part: 1 | Laguna Beach, CA | Analisa Joy Photography | San Diego, CA Photographer

Last time I saw Rachel, we were celebrating her college graduation. I photographed her senior session and we talked about her dreams of being an interior design and marrying her boyfriend, Kyle. Kyle and Rachel met on a cruise during their high school graduation trips. They were attached at the hip throughout the entire vacation and they quickly learned that they lived close to one another. When they got back, they continued dating and six years later they are ready to tie the knot. Her dream of marrying Kyle is finally coming true and to put a cherry on top, Rachel also received the ultimate interior design job in Orange County. Kyle is a Devil Doc in the Navy and he left a few days ago for a seven month deployment. This is only part one of their engagement session. We are going to do another when Kyle returns! I am absolutely in love with their session. These two should grace the cover of magazines… they are so cute! Please keep this sweet couple in your prayers while Kyle is overseas! Congrats Kyle & Rachel!Love!

This is one of my favorites!

Another favorite!

Trying not to get wet. That was a close one.


Climbed a few rocks to get this shot. Almost fell twice, but it was worth it.

He’ll be back before we know it!

I couldn’t leave without grabbing a few scenery shots.
Such a gorgeous day!
