Kamloops PORTRAIT + WEDDING Photographer
Hey there! Welcome to this little piece of the internet I get to call my own! I’m Lisa, a Kamloops BC portrait, wedding and commercial photographer. I specialize in photography that is both timeless and that has a creative, modern edge. I am best known for putting people at ease in front of the camera, and for my ability to draw out my client’s personality and capture that personality with my camera. And, in all honesty, being able to do that with and for my clients brings me great joy in my work!
I have a beautiful studio in downtown Kamloops. In the studio I shoot beauty portraits, personal branding clients, high school grads, headshots and corporate teams and I also love shooting the occasional vogue style family session in there! Otherwise, you can find me adventuring around the diverse landscapes of the Thompson Okanagan area with my clients, finding stunning vistas and rolling sage hills to photograph them in.
I invite you to meander around the site and check out my portfolios. If you connect with some of the photos you see and my style of photography, I’d love to hear from you so we can start a conversation about how I can photograph you!!
“Getting a new headshot is always a bit nerve-wracking. It feels like a lot of pressure and suddenly you’re acutely aware of your too-long arms and wonder why it feels like there’s no good place to put your hands. But as soon as Lisa is behind the camera it all gets easier. Lisa gives the perfect amount of direction without ever feeling critical. It’s easy to relax and trust that the picture will be great when Lisa is behind the lens. Lisa gave our entire team the confidence they needed to be captured as their authentic selves and experience was one we both enjoyed and appreciated. Our team has never looked more beautiful, professional or themselves. I can’t recommend Lisa highly enough.” – Katie

Adventure Awaits!!! Have you heard that before?? It’s a phrase that runs through my mind every time I’m off to photograph a family session. Adventure truly does “await” when it comes to photographing kids, and I never know what’s going to happen, what they’re going to say or, really, how the photoshoot is going to go.
I wanted to share a story with you about how finding the right photographer can make all the difference in your photos. You know how sometimes you cross paths with someone who you’re sure is a great human being, but you just didn’t gel together at all? But And on the other hand, sometimes you meet someone and you know immediately you’re basically kindred spirits? Finding the right photographer for YOU can be kinda like that.
Every time I’m asked to shoot a winter wedding, it feels almost like winning the lottery. Not that I’ve actually WON the lottery, but I imagine this is what it feels like, haha. Once you learn how to photograph them (hello snow and white dresses!) it’s so fun to go where the beauty takes you! And as far as winter weddings go, Sun Peaks Resort is an exceptional venue… lovely accommodations, a quaint village, sweeping views and so many beautiful locations for your photos!
Okay, I have to be honest - I try to think of each location I shoot as equal. Just as you're not supposed to have a favourite child, I try my best not to have a favourite shooting site. But I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Kamloops Lake is one of my...
