Q: How many hours should we book?
A: Most weddings can be covered in 8 hours if everything happens in the same location. I also offer 10 & 12 hours packages if you want to drop by multiple locations for photos, or if you have a big group of wedding party.
Q: Do we need a second photographer? Who would it be?
A: Sometimes having two photographers can be overwhelming for intimate weddings. I would recommend a second photographer if there are over 100 guests, or if you are getting ready at separate locations, or if you just don’t want to miss a thing - a second photographer can give you a second perspective!
All second photographers are carefully selected by me. Based on their availability, I will confirm with you 3 months before the wedding.
Q: we are nervous in front of the camera, can you help us?
A: Of course! That’s why I am here for you! No cheesy poses or awkward smiles. I have secret tricks to put you at ease. It will feel as easy as falling in love with your significant other. :) You don’t have to be professional models to look stunning! If you ever feel overwhelmed (especially when every guest wants to take a photo with you), I can even steal you away from the guests and let you take a break.
Q: when can we see our photos?
A: You will receive a sneak peek (5 photos) in a week after your wedding. The fully edited gallery will be sent to you online within a month after your wedding - you can download them in high resolution and share them with family and friends.
If a USB is included in the package, you will receive it in the mail within 2 months after your wedding.
Q: Do you offer prints and albums?
A: Yes! Printed goods are a perfect way to turn your photos into something you can see and flip through every day. Both you and your guests can order prints directly from your online gallery. For albums, we will work together on designing the perfect heirloom.
Q: Can we see a full wedding gallery?
A: Of course! Follow this link to see how I tell a full day's story.
Q: How does travel cost work?
A: If your wedding or photoshoot location is more than 50km away from Vancouver city centre, there will be a travel cost of $0.54/km to & from your location.
Q: When do i need to pay?
A: To secure your date, you have to pay a 25% non-refundable deposit and sign a contract. The rest will be due 2 weeks before your wedding.
Q: Can i purchase original photos?
A: My couples have been very satisfied with the amount of edited photos they received already, but if you really want to, you can purchase original photos in JPG format. I charge $60/hr. (For example, if you booked a 10 hour wedding coverage, you will be charged $600 in total for all the original photos.)
Q: Where should we take our photos?
A: If you don’t have a place in mind already, tell me more about your love story, what you like to do together, etc. We will brainstorm together, and I’ll help you choose the meaningful location for you. The season matters too! Some locations are way more gorgeous in a specific time of the year, so let’s plan ahead.
Q: can you tell us more about makeup service and dress rentals?
A: If you want to add makeup/hair service, it will be done by professional artists that I have carefully selected for you. Costs range from $150-250 depending on their availability. Dress rentals are provided by Vimo Wedding, located in Burnaby. You may arrange a try-on session to choose your dress before the photoshoot.
Q: What should we wear?
A: I will provide you with a styling guide when we plan the shoot. We will confirm your choice of clothing again prior to the shoot to make sure you will look stunning in the photos! If you need additional assistance, I can connect you with a personal stylist who can style you with your existing wardrobe/suggest new garments.
