Hello! A Little Introduction

Hi, I’m Deanna, girl behind the lens and owner of Devee Photography. I have lived on beautiful Vancouver Island my entire life and I am completely and passionately head over hiking boots in love with it. When you see me deep in thought, I’m probably thinking about the next camping trip, hike or road trip adventure. I can’t wait to fill my backpack with camping gear and head into the mountains of Strathcona Park or along the coastline of remote West Coast beaches. I recently bought my dream vehicle, a 2000 Toyota Tacoma 4×4, which means I can literally go EVERYWHERE now! <3 This insatiable passion for exploring has lead me to discovering a bounty of incredible settings on Vancouver Island and beyond. I love taking my clients to unique locations that they will ultimately fall in love with too. Adventuring, camping, and road tripping with my couples allows us to really get to know each other and create stunning elopement, engagement and wedding photos!

I live in a converted 1977 Bluebird school bus with my blue-eyed cat Snowy. Falling asleep to the sound of rain falling on the steel roof, and cozying up inside with the wood stove lit is winter solitude to me. The rest of the year, I basically live outside camping in the mountains ;) I feel so fortunate that I have two fulfilling passions, and that I get to feed them often. I am very drawn to photography because I am drawn to people and their stories. Capturing a frame of their soul living in the moment is breathtaking. People continually change and grow, and when you look back at images that truly capture your authentic spirit, it can feel like travelling through time. Every day is a gift, and I believe everybody deserves to have their soul captured on camera to remind them of how beautiful their lives are.
