Hey, I'm Saraya Joy!

I’m a bohemian little wild child who’s currently

I’m soaking up every inch of life I possibly can - I'm always exploring and trying new things, so you’ll probably find me surfing, skydiving, climbing mountains at 4am, road trippin’ (I basically live out of my car), jumping off cliffs, scuba diving and buying plane tickets every chance I get.

In between adventures I’m hanging out at home in Canada with my two wiener dogs, Gus and Penny! They are literally both my whole heart.

But MOST importantly, I’m a worldwide destination elopement + wedding photographer who will follow love wherever YOU are!

Let's work together!

"...I will never ever use another photographer till I die, SERIOUSLY..."

"There wasn't a single aspect of our session that was just "ok" or below perfect. Saraya was so kind, fun and light. it wasn't stressful or over complicated. Our session flowed naturally and I 100% believe this is because of her energy & eye for "the perfect moment". I will never use another photographer till I die, SERIOUSLY."

"...She treats her clients like true friends and we couldn't have asked for a better experience..."

"Saraya was the best investment we made + we are absolutely amazed by her talent, constant communication, helpfulness + just how amazing she is in general. Not only was she helpful with planning our day, but she went above + beyond to help with locations, outfit guides + so much more." 


"...Every single one of our photos are LITERAL works of art...."

"Photography was at the top of our priorities + budget, so when we picked Saraya we did not look back. I was so impressed with how they turned out + shared them with everyone who immediately understood why we picked her. We feel so privileged about the memories she is capturing for us that we can treasure for years to come - we cannot be happier with our decision!"


"I hope you see things that take your breath away, things that make you feel like you have never felt before. I hope you travel to the places you have always wanted to explore, I hope you catch the sunset at the perfect time on a random Tuesday drive and have your whole chest expand with gratitude. I hope the night sky is always beautiful wherever you rest your head.

I hope you drink good coffee and stay out late with someone who enlivens you. I hope your bones are tired and your hair is messy and your heart is full of nostalgia. I hope someone who makes your whole damn face light up kisses you the way you have always wanted to be kissed, that they hold your hand and take care of you when you’re sick and bring you flowers just because.

I hope you fall so deeply in love with your life that your happiness is undeniable whenever someone looks at you. I hope your days are filled with people who inspire you, and that you always let them know just how rare they are, just how much you appreciate them. I hope they do the same for you. I hope you connect with your moments, the ones that make you feel like you’re doing something right, the ones that happen quietly in the middle of a conversation when everything stops and you truly realize just how lucky you are to be alive.

I hope you are reminded every single day why you’re special. I hope you are reminded that you make people feel heard, that you make people feel understood and accepted. I hope you believe that — that you have purpose, that you’re a good person who deserves beautiful things and rich moments in life, that you mean something to someone.

But most of all, I hope you look back on this moment and smile. I hope it becomes the moment you leapt — the moment you started living."
