FEATURED BLOG POSTS[vancouver wedding photography] Organic Greenery Wedding at Fraser River Lodge
Words can’t describe how magical my wedding day was for me, I had the privilege to gather my loved ones from around the world under one arbour to wine, dine and dance under the stars.
Do you shoot film or digital?
I shoot the majority of my work on medium format and 35mm film. I find that film gives my photos a classic, fine art look, and sets my work apart. Most photographers do not shoot film anymore, which I find to be such a pity as it is extremely beautiful. I also deliver some digital work in monochrome as the high ISO in digital cameras allows for beautiful tones in low light and will not look out of place alongside colour negative film.
How do I book you for a destination wedding?
Destination weddings are my jam, simply let me know when and where and I'll send you a quote including all expense to make it easier for you.
Will you advise us on our wedding timeline?
Most definitely, I always try to provide a proposed photography schedule for the best lighting situation. I also work closely with your venue/planner/stylist to ensure that all your important moments are happening at the optimal time with regards to the available natural light.
Do you give direction during our wedding or portrait session?
Absolutely. I give you as much guidance and direction as possible, not only during your wedding or photoshoot but also beforehand, advising on vendors and scheduling, and/or liaising with planners so that important moments are captured as beautifully and efficiently as possible. I have a cinematic way of shooting live events and am very specific about the way that I elicit candid, natural poses. I bring a stylist’s point of view to much of the day as well and often help my brides and grooms design their nuptials to look and feel the most beautiful that it can. This way, you are comfortable and relaxed during the time we are together and the resulting photos will be natural and authentic.
How do you handle low light situations, what if my wedding has limited natural light?
Colour film looks best when there is plenty of natural light. However, black and white film and digital monochrome have an equally soulful quality. You will receive more monochrome images on rainy/cloudy days and after sundown during your reception. I always choose the best film type for every situation and shoot what I think will create the best image.
What is the best way to reach you? Can we schedule a time to speak?
The best way to reach me is to email firstname.lastname@example.org. The majority of our correspondence will be online but we can also schedule a time to speak on the phone, or meet in person in Vancouver.
If I’m ready to book, what are the next steps?
Once you’re ready to book, please send me your final details and package of choice. I will draft a contract for you to review which will be attached to an invoice for your retainer payment. Dates are booked with a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer. Final payments are due a week prior to your wedding or portrait session date. Sorry, alterations and edits to my contract are not permitted and dates cannot be held without a paid retainer.
