We work hard to cater our photography to reflect YOU. And, our relaxed approach means you're going to have a natural smile, not a forced one.
We 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 artistic portraits of you that reflect the natural landscape of Victoria and Vancouver Island — the kind of photos you’ll be excited to hang on your wall.
As self-conscious people ourselves, we've got your back. Rather than stiff and formal posing, we believe in providing you directions that will have you and your guests feeling relaxed and having fun -- all while looking like total rock stars! You're going to LOVE your wedding photos!
Christina & Derek often team up together. However, if you're having a smaller wedding or elopement, and you don't need two photographers that's no problem. Christina has worked as a solo photographer for many years and knows exactly how to capture your awesome wedding day without missing a thing.
+ WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? DO YOU TRAVEL?
We photograph weddings in Victoria, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island and we capture ceremonies throughout Canada and the world. We also used to live part-time in Costa Rica, and we make frequent trips to Central America (including Guatamala) every year.
+ CAN WE RECEIVE PRINTABLE, DIGITAL IMAGES WITH NO LOGOS?
Our coverage always includes retouched, high-resolution, printable images that will blow up beyond poster size. 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.
+ HOW MANY WEDDING PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT?
Rather than setting a limit of, say, 300 images in six hours... we leave no stone un-turned in ensuring your full wedding day story is captured. The minimum amount you can expect is a photo a minute, but 99.9% of the time it's considerably more.
We only remove photos that are unflattering, those with blinking eyes, or if we've experimented and something didn't turn out. And if we've photographed in a flurry, then you'll receive the best of a sequence so you don't have a million photos that only change by a fraction of a second. The bottom line: We aren't going to remove a photo of your aunt just because we don't deem it "artistic enough."
+ DO YOU RETOUCH OUR PORTRAITS AND WEDDING IMAGES?
Absolutely. Your images will be retouched to the high standards you see on our website. We remove blemishes, and we also help out with double chins!
Christina would love to photograph your family reunion, or any other personal event you're hosting! She also photograph lots of families while they're visiting Victoria or Vancouver Island and she know some great spots for jaw-dropping backdrops.
We photograph everything from surprise proposals, to engagement portraits to smaller weddings and elopments.
We sure do! Let us know your plans and count us in!
You betcha! We have lots of experience photographing large 500+ guest weddings with Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Catholic, Chinese, Taiwanese, Pakistani, Indian, Sri Lankan, Vietnamese and Filipino communities.
