Alana Rae Photography

authentic + lifestyle documenter

Hello there! I’m Alana, currently living and loving in Kamloops BC!

When I’m not third-wheeling with a camera in my hand I’m either chasing after my 1 year old, hanging out with my handsome high school sweetheart husband… or both!

I’m just an ordinary girl who is discovering how wonderful it is to see the extraordinary through the lens of my camera. I deeply appreciate the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in between moments, and I do my best to take every photo with that in mind. I’m a lover of the unposed and unscripted. Letting love shine brightly, tell it’s story without saying a word- while I stand back and document the entire process.

Let’s get to know each other!

Love Notes

“I could say working with Alana was an absolute dream; however I never once felt like I was working with her, more like she was the guest I never knew I needed + the friend I always felt I had. From the moment she arrived at our house where I sat in the make-up chair getting ready, she fit in perfectly with my bridesmaids + family that it didn’t feel like we needed introductions. To capturing all of our natural moments with immaculate detail. You know the little moments that are filled with love + a bit of magic where you can truly feel the story behind each one. All the way up until the end when I told her we had everything we needed + more, thanked her profusely for such an amazing time behind her lens + then chased after her barefoot through the grass to declare that we forgot all about my GigiPip hat (which we were both equally obsessed with). Without missing a beat she unpacked her camera again for an impromptu mini bridal photoshoot under the stars with the perfect accessory. I’ll never forget the story leading up to those photos + the dedication she conveyed in that moment, throughout our time together + the months following our wedding. Alana’s photos hold such a mix of energetic glee + whimsical love matching her personality, shining through her work. I could not have wished for a better experience or treasures so pure as the wedding photos we will hold dear to our hearts forever.”

“When it came time to find a photographer for our special day, we had a very specific style in mind. When we found Alana’s work online, we knew she was the one for us. We had a small, somewhat non-traditional wedding and Alana’s easygoing, yet professional attitude was exactly what we needed. Alana was there with us every step of the way, finding out exactly what we were looking for and creating a package that worked for us. She showed such enthusiasm and warmth and we really felt like she was genuinely happy to be a part of our day. On the day of the wedding she came with a smile on her face and immediately started capturing moments we knew we would cherish forever. Even though wildfire smoke was blanketing the skies throughout the day, Alana didn’t let that dampen her enthusiasm. Her flexibility and knowledge were invaluable on that day, and I wouldn’t change the photos we got for the world. Throughout the entire process Alana went the extra mile, communicating frequently about our needs, and even provided us with complimentary prints and an album when we received our photos. When we were expecting our daughter two years later, we knew Alana was the one we wanted capturing those moments, too. We returned to the same spot where we got married two summers before and Alana again captured beautiful moments we will never forget. I would not hesitate to recommend Alana for any occasion and know she will go above and beyond your expectations.”
