Can I talk to you in person if I have questions?

We’d love to meet up with you in person to show you more of our work. We have a studio downtown Victoria or we can come to you. If we’re in the midst of traveling and you want to get things set before we’re home we are also available for a Skype or phone chat.

Yaay! That makes us happy. We ask for a retainer and a signed contract to officially book the wedding date. Please get in touch and we’ll send you more information.

Do we get digital images?

Our coverage always includes high-resolution, printable images. You’ll also receive a sneak peek within a week of the wedding, and when your collection is ready we’ll provide you with an online gallery you can share with your guests. The gallery allows them to order prints directly from a professional photo lab. This will save you the time and cost of making prints and copies for others.

More FAQs about Victoria BC Wedding Photography

What is your approach to photographing weddings?

We work hard to cater our photography to reflect YOU. We all have a relaxed approach that will ensure you have a natural smile, not a forced one. Rather than stiff and formal posing, we believe in providing you directions that will have you and your guests feeling as comfortable as possible. We love to photograph in a variety of styles and we offer a mix of candid photojournalism, fashion, something artsy and funky, or anything in between. We can also create epic portraits of you that reflect the natural landscape of Victoria and Vancouver Island.

Do you still take formal traditional family portraits (with everyone looking at the camera and smiling)?

Absolutely! We always ensure we take photos of the groups that are important to you and we also take more traditional look-at-the-camera-and-smile photos of you as a couple, plus everyone in the wedding party. We know these are important photos for families and they don’t take long to accomplish.

If I send you my Pinterest board will you duplicate photos?

We love Pinterest and we love to see your boards to get an idea of the styles that appeal to you. Our goal is to create one-of-a-kind images of your wedding that reflect who you are as a couple. We want to give you photos that other people will pin – that way you’re the trend-setter! 🙂

Do you photograph engagement portraits or surprise marriage proposals?

We sure do! Read our recent article how to plan the perfect surprise engagement proposal in Victoria .

What if it rains?

We will always have a rain plan and we have lots of tricks we can use to incorporate the rain creatively in your photos. However, we do suggest that you plan for rain as well… Some couples have provided their wedding party with matching umbrellas. This is an awesome idea in case of bad weather.

How long before I receive my images?

We will provide you with a sneak peek so you have something to look at while you’re waiting for your images to be polished. Our guarantee is between six to eight weeks; however, our average delivery time is usually between four to five weeks.

Are images edited or post-processed?

We take great pride in our image editing and spend about four to five hours polishing your images for every one hour of photography. And while we clean up blemishes and fix up skin on important close-up portraits and photos, you’re still going to look like yourself.

If I hire a photographer through FunkyTown for my Victoria wedding can I choose the person I want to work with? Is there a chance that I hire one person and another person shows up instead?

The photographer you hire is the person who will photograph your wedding. If you opt add a second photographer we have a group of awesomely talented associate photographers.
