Frequently asked questions
First of all, congratulations on your engagement. I'm guessing you are starting to dip your toes in the Wedding Planning process. Perhaps you just started searching for a Wedding Photographer, or you've been searching for awhile. I'd like to think you have come to the right place. I am a Wedding Photographer in Victoria BC, as well as a Wedding Videographer in Victoria. I also Photograph Weddings in Campbell River and all the rest of Vancouver Island.
I am passionate, energetic, and genuinely excited to be part of your Wedding Day. I always strive to go above and beyond when it comes to Wedding Photography or Wedding Videography. I want you to be able to look back at your wedding photos or videos and relive the entire day again. With my light, and bold images, you will be sure to remember every amazing detail of your wedding, including those moments you might not even witness.
If you hire me as your wedding photographer, I can also utilize my videography skills to film parts of the day such as the speeches, first dances, or part of the ceremony! I'd love to hear what you are looking for in a photographer or videographer. Shoot me a message and let's chat!
I photograph 5 - 12 hour Weddings as well as 1-3 hour Wedding Elopements across Vancouver Island. Wedding Photography Packages start at $2,300 (5 hours). You can find more information regarding my Victoria Wedding photography packages, or Campbell River Wedding photography packages here. The average couple spends roughly $3,400 for a full wedding day but there is a wide range of options!
What do I receive in a Wedding Photography collection?
All wedding photography packages include a minimum of 80 high-resolution photos per hour of photography. For example, an 8-hour wedding will have a minimum of 640 images - but oftentimes, it is much more. Images are sent in a beautifully laid out gallery for you to download digital files, create a list of favourite images, send to friends or family, and order prints through.
If you'd like to see what a full wedding photo album looks like, check out a blog post with a full story. This will give you a better idea of what you will receive! If you love my style and want to connect, send me a message.
When I book you as a Wedding Photographer, can you also film parts of the day?
Yes, I do both! There are two different ways to go about this.
1. I will be your wedding photographer first and foremost. But, when important moments occur, I can also film with my other camera. Often times couples choose to film the 'first look', parts of the wedding ceremony, the first dances, some of the speeches, and more.
2. I will be both your wedding photographer and wedding videographer. I can photograph roughly 70% of the time, and also film for 30% of the time. This way, you will receive an abundance of wedding images, along with a vibrant yet smooth wedding highlight video. These highlight videos range from 4-8 minutes depending on the length of the wedding day.
What is your wedding photography style?
When it comes to wedding photos, I create vibrant, light, and bold images. I am all about natural outdoor lighting. The images will also represent the two of you the way you truly are. I am less about posing you in the perfect way, and more about capturing the experience of it all. I have a healthy mix of organic, candid shots as well as offering direction or giving you prompts to naturally get you into those 'picture perfect' positions.
As a Wedding Photographer, I capture authentic, real moments like the look in your parents' eyes as you say 'I do,' the subtle glances from the two of you know how in love you are, or the bursts of laughter from the entire wedding party during the reception. I will be what you need me to be: A fly on the wall photographing moments in the background or a bigger presence helping you get those picture-perfect images in the most natural way.
Your day should run smoothly without too much direction from me. Of course, we will take some time away from the guests to get wedding photos of the two of you, or with your wedding party, but personally, I don't want this to take too much time away from your day (unless you want to spend more time doing this)! I want you to feel comfortable
