About Christina Derek and Gwen WEdding PHotographers in Victoria BC

OUR APPROACH

You’ll notice the couples who choose us all have different personal styles and different ways of celebrating, but they have one thing in common: they are having fun and being themselves! Have a look through our portfolio and ask yourself how you feel when you look at our photos. Do you see yourselves in them?

We believe in capturing candid moments throughout the day, allowing you to enjoy every moment without intrusion. During portraits, we’ll give you directions that will help you have a natural smile (not a forced one), while still making sure you look amazing! We also love to create a few unique, creative photos from each wedding that you’ll be excited to hang on your wall.

 

STUFF THAT MAKES OUR MOTHERS PROUD

We’re proud that our approach and style are sought out by other professionals, with more than 800 wedding photographers having attended a FunkyTown Photography workshop.

We’ve had three top 10 world-wide placements with the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. And we’ve also ranked as the #2 and #3 best wedding photographers in Canada (PWPC 2012 & 2014), in addition to receiving 22 prestigious lifetime Fearless Awards.

And while industry accolades are great, it’s most important for us to make our couples happy. After all, it’s your story we’re telling. Check out what couples have said about us in their own words.

 

THE FUNKYTOWN PHOTOGRAPHY STORY

Written by Christina
In 2011 I met an awesome photographer named Gwen and we quickly bonded over a shared love of cats, camping and travel. We photographed a wedding together and when I looked through her images I was in love. She took some of the best photos I had ever seen! It was the start of a beautiful friendship. And when she said she was also interested in spending winters in Costa Rica? It was the start of a beautiful partnership!

Fast forward a couple of years and I also found myself in love with another photographer named Derek. This time it was a different kind of love, and that’s why we’re now married, haha. He eventually began joining me at weddings and he was a natural – taking photos that made me jealous. And best of all, couples loved him! It only made sense for Derek to quit his day job and join our team!

We pinch ourselves all the time for getting to do this for a living. For us there’s no better feeling than documenting moments that are so important and personal to each of the couples we photograph. We’re based in Victoria, Halifax, Banff & Costa Rica.
