Find a photographer you like (nay, love) to photograph your Fraser Valley Wedding
More than liking the photos, you should also like the person! You’re welcoming this person into your most important and exciting moments and asking them to stick closer to you than any other vendor you work with. You have to like your wedding photographer. Loving your photos is valuable but loving your photographer is priceless. Go have coffee with prospects, treat it like a “first date”, and see if you click well enough to spent intense hours together.

Find a photographer who is well-respected and well-established to help you document your fun
As easy as it is in our iPhone-driven world to take and share pretty good photos, a photographer is not just taking a snapshot of a moment. A good wedding photographer is drawing upon years of experience to give you living proof of your wedding day.
But how do you tell whether or not a photographer is a pro?
Has the photographer shot in a range of settings, in a variety of conditions? Look for variety in your photographer’s portfolio images
Find a photographer who likes you
You want your wedding photographer to like you because you’ll get better photographs. Plain and simple. You don’t want someone who’s just showing up for the paycheque.
(For the record: if I don’t think you and I are a good fit, I won’t sign a contract to shoot your wedding. The photographer/bride connection is vitally important to the creation of magnificent images.)

In Case We haven’t met
I’ve photographed weddings for the last decade years and built my business while working a desk job and living in North Carolina. For the past six years I’ve lived in the Fraser Valley and learned to love its beauty and variety. (My love story is a crazy one and is the reason I moved from North Carolina to British Columbia – you should ask me about it when we meet for coffee!)
I believe you are beautiful and deserve to look and feel your best on your wedding day.
But I also know you don’t always feel that way. So maybe you’re not a Hollywood icon. And maybe you don’t fit the idealized version of beauty the media portrays. Maybe you hate your nose and your weight isn’t where you’d like it. But here’s the thing.
You. Are. Beautiful.
You are, I’m convinced of it. And I’m committed to tell your unique love story in a way that’s true to you and showcase how stunning you are.
Let’s get down to business
Here’s what to expect
We’ll get to know one another through email or conversation and then when you’re ready to book I’ll send over an electronic contract and invoice to make it all official.
Throughout your engagement, my inbox is open to you: I’ll answer questions, offer support, and walk with you through the fun and logistics of your wedding. Remember: I’m your wedding expert!
We’ll be friends by the time your wedding rolls around and I’ll probably cry during your first dance. Or your vows. Or the speeches. Or all of the above.
As fast as is humanly possible, you’ll see a preview of your wedding day and then I’ll deliver your full collection in less than a month (at least, that’s what the contract will say – off the record, I’ll admit you’ll see photos within two weeks!).
We’ll still be friends and I’ll cheer when you announce a pregnancy, cry when a grandparent dies, do a dance when you book me for your family portraits, and forever cherish our memories together.
