I’m Lisa Novakowski, the person behind the camera at Lisa Novak Photography.
I love the great outdoors, hiking, kayaking, camping, cross country skiing, sitting outside in the evening with a good book and a glass of wine (that’s still the great outdoors, right??).
I REALLY love photographing people. Portraiture and weddings mostly. It is hugely rewarding for me when the person in front of my camera lets their guard down and gives me a glimpse of their true self while I’m shooting them. That they would trust me enough so let me see them that clearly is humbling and incredible, and it makes my heart happy.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and knew by the end of that day that I had found what I was meant to do. I love this career so much! I have been photographing weddings ever since, and I've been a full-time photographer in Kamloops since 2009. My downtown studio provides an opportunity to meet with future wedding clients in a quiet and comfortable location. Getting to be part of a wedding day is one of my favourite things... I specialize in documenting all the moments and emotions of the day and mixing in beautiful creative portraits.
