Vancouver Wedding Photographers
FINDING THE BEST VANCOUVER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS (OR ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER) Published March 25, 2013 Written by Daniel Ha INTRODUCTION Best Vancouver Wedding PhotographersYou have a wedding date and a wedding venue all lined up. You have a long list of items to check off, and one of those at the top of your list is probably a wedding photographer. Flipping though the pages of a wedding magazine, you begin to realize what a daunting task it’s going to be to find the right wedding photographer for your big day. Going online doesn’t seem to help much either, there are simply too many Vancouver wedding photographers to choose from (or from anywhere for that matter), and looking through every portfolio seems like so much work. But don’t fret; you’re in good company. Every year, hundreds of engaged couples go through this ritual. Finding a good wedding photographer is no easy task, and finding the best wedding photographer for your wedding can sometimes seem like a full-time job in itself. As someone who has been through this process and has extensive experience in the wedding industry, I’ve put together some tips and advice to help you on your quest to find the best wedding photographers for your special day. 1. THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS AREN’T ALWAYS LISTED ON THE FIRST PAGE OF YOUR WEB RESULTS. Sexy bride top It seems so natural nowadays to begin your search using a search engine like Google, Bing, or Yahoo, but don’t immediately assume that the top listed photographers are the best for you. A photographer who lists high on Google search results may just be very good at online search marketing, but you’re not looking for a marketing expert, you’re look for a wedding photographer who can give you the type of photos you want and the level of service you need for your wedding. Often times, the best wedding photographers are not listed anywhere near the top of a Google search page. The best wedding photographers are often in high demand, and may be aiming focus (no pun intended!) on their clients rather than web traffic. The only way to find the right photographer is to go through as many results pages as you can, and often times, that will mean going past the 10th or even 20th search engine results page. 2. ASK TO SEE ONLY WEDDING PHOTOS FROM REAL CLIENTS Top Vancouver wedding photographerYes, there are photographers who only have portfolio photos from workshops or perhaps even from second shooting with other photographers. Why is it important to see photos from their actual clients? Because wedding photography isn’t just about the photos themselves, but the process behind creating the photos. If a photographer is only showing photos of models from photo workshops or photos in which they were not the primary photographer, you’re only getting to see a small part of their skill set. As impressive as their photos may be, you want to know that your candidate can handle the ups and downs of a wedding day as a primary photographer. You also want to know that they can properly pose you on their own and coach you through portrait sessions like a seasoned expert. The only way to really know how your candidate performs is to see actual wedding photos from clients that hired him or her as the primary photographers. 3. ASK IF THE PHOTOGRAPHER HAS PROFESSIONAL INSURANCE One of the signs of any professional is how seriously he or she takes their business, and an important commitment any business person must make is to have the proper insurance to protect themselves and their clients. Photography may seem like a basic service to some, but the business of wedding photography can be a difficult one to manage. During busy times of the year, the risks to losing equipment, equipment failures, and even damaging venue property are ever present. Having the right professional insurance also means protecting you from liability. What happens if the photographer you hire accidentally damages an expensive stained glass window at a church? Who will be on the hook for the repair costs? If it’s your photographer who is responsible, will he or she have liability insurance to cover the costs? This is an important question to ask your photographer candidate, and one that many couples overlook. 4. ONLINE REVIEWS AREN’T ALL THAT RELIABLE There seems to be online reviews for everything nowadays, and like most people, we often won’t make a major purchase without consulting an online review first. However, in the wedding industry, reviews can say little about the actual skill level, professionalism, and “fit” of a photographer. A 5-star rating or lots of Facebook “Likes” isn’t always a good measure of a good photographer. Someone who’s new to the industry may just have one or two 5-star reviews to their name, while someone who has been around for a long time and done hundreds of wedding may have a 4-star review. Facebook “Likes” is also not a good measure of a photographer’s skill or “fit” with your requirements. In such case, would it be fair to judge two photographers simply by how many stars or Likes they have? Probably not. Moreover, there have been so much online review fakery (e.g. cyber shills) on the internet, that such reviews are just simply unreliable. 5. USE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS A SOURCE Hotels for weddingsDon’t just use your Facebook friends, I mean really talk to your family and close friends about their experiences with photographers. They’ll give you a lot of insight into what’s important to them, or the top photographers on their wish list. See out friend who are married and ask them for tips and advice. They may suggest the photographer they used, or others they met with that they think could be a good fit for you. 6. BOOK YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER EARLY! If you’re really after the best wedding photographer, you need to get started as early as possible. Good wedding photographers book up key dates quickly. Don’t think that by waiting until a month before your wedding to decide that you’re going to be getting a better deal. You may end up paying a little less (or often times, even a little more), but only because you’re getting a photographer who has booked that date yet. So if you’re getting married on a Saturday in between June – September, be sure to book your photographer at least 9-12 months before. For example, most of the best Vancouver wedding photographers will have booked their summer dates by the fall of the previous year. CONCLUSION: IT TAKES WORK! This probably doesn’t sound much like a concluding tip, but it’s important advice. If you want to find the best wedding photographers, you’ll have to do the leg work. This means gathering a list of potential candidates and actually arranging in-person meetings with these photographers. You don’t need to meet with a long list of photographers, just 2-3 is usually enough to get an idea of what you’re looking for. If you need help, ask a friend or relative to shorten the list for you and then contact the candidates to arrange an meeting. There are no easy shortcuts to finding the best professional for your wedding, but using these tips will help you narrow the field. © Copyright 2013, All Rights Reserved.

Then comes the challenge of engagement and planning your dream wedding, which can be disappointing surprise. I often remember hearing family and friends suggesting that someday you will find the one and you will just know. I usually dismissed their suggestions and thought that the chance of love was unlikely. This past year I have found and am now engaged to my beloved so the journey of engagement is something I am facing at now. Let me say that love is possible. It is a wonderful thing when you find true love. Every morning I wake up utterly surprised that you are fortunate enough to spend your life with your loved one. Engagement and wedding photography is a public display of this love so you have to choose the right photographer and the perfect locations. If you choose to do engagement photos, you should enjoy the process in stunning locations throughout Vancouver. Below are the top 10 engagement photo locations that West Vancouver-based photographer Clint Bargen thinks are mashing choices. 1. Belcarra Park in Port Moody Belcarra Regional Park is a beautiful 1,110 hectare park about an hour outside of downtown Vancouver, which is located northeast of the meeting of Burrard Inlet with Indian Arm. This location is ideal for some great shots with you and your loved one with various outdoor shots. You can see from these photo that the couple are on a rock perched at the beginning of Sasamat Lake. It's a tranquil moment between the couple captured in this location. 2016-08-18-1471564491-3466961-BelcarraParkPortMoody.jpg 2. Iona Beach in Richmond This stunning beach is located a short distance north of the Vancouver International Airport, which is an area with a long skinny area of grass and sand at the mouth of the Fraser River. This location is approximately 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver with easy access to transit. In this photo you see the couple surrounded by birds with a forest and grey clouds in the background. 2016-08-18-1471564206-8960984-IonaBeachRichmond.jpg 3. Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver This park is one of the most popular and stunning parks in Metro Vancouver, which is along the shores of West Vancouver. Lighthouse Park has the largest collection of Douglas Fir trees in the region along with the views of the water. The couple are sharing a tender moment in front of the iconic breath-taking waters of the North Shore. 2016-08-18-1471563677-4025348-LighthouseParkWestVancouver.jpg 4. Lynn Valley in North Vancouver This location is an area nestled between the slopes of Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour with ideal natural settings for engagement photos. This park is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver. There are suspension bridges that will make a perfect location such as this couple standing on one. 2016-08-18-1471563787-3657300-LynnValleyNorthVancouver.jpg "Having recently gone through my own wedding adventure, I can definitely understand how each one is such a whirlwind of emotion, joy and memories. As a photographer, it is my job to capture those memories for you to cherish," said West Vancouver-Based wedding photographer Clint Bargen. 5. Cleveland Dam Trial in North Vancouver The dam, which was built in 1954, blocks the Capilano Lake which supplies fresh water for all of the region. The dam is part of a park that provides exceptional views for wedding or engagement photos. This park allows for some quiet moments in nature to show a few special moments with this couple. 2016-08-18-1471563960-6532390-ClevelandDamTrailNorthVancouver.jpg 6. Coal Harbour in the fall in downtown Vancouver This location is minutes away from anywhere in the downtown core so it would be a quick location to grab a few shots for your engagement or wedding photoshoot. This area is known for the glass and high end apartment buildings with green space nestled into the concrete haven. 2016-08-19-1471564805-8968252-CoalHarbourinthefall.jpg 7. Crescent Beach in Surrey This location is filled with both nature and beach scene that make it ideal for any wedding or engagement photos. If you love the oceans of the Metro Vancouver region but do not want to travel down to downtown Vancouver then this is the perfect location for anyone in the Fraser Valley. Crescent Beach also allows you to see Point Roberts and other iconic views of the Metro Vancouver area. 2016-08-18-1471563023-4571948-CrescentBeachSurrey.jpg 8. Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver This location is a 130-acre municipal park located a short distance from downtown Vancouver and is situated on Little Mountain. If you would like your photos in the midst of gardens and beautiful green space then pick this spot. It will combine the delicious smells and sites of gardens that are often difficult to find in Vancouver. 2016-08-18-1471563299-7827375-QueenElizabethParkEngagementPhotosEshootVancouverWeddingPhotographer35.jpg 9. Hycroft Manor in South Granville, Vancouver This historic mansion was built and housed the residence of a General who constructed the building for his family. In the 1940s it became a veterans hospital for a few decades until a group of women took it over to make it the location of the University Women's Club. This location has gardens, historic venue and delightful views of English Bay and downtown Vancouver. This is my favourite location and the location of my wedding. I would highly recommend this venue for photos but you need to call ahead prior to doing so. 2016-08-18-1471563345-2644334-hycroft.jpg Your wedding and engagement photos must always reflect you as a couple so these are just suggestions for your to consider. Don't forget to share our wishes with your photographer. "A wedding is an incredible way to express your unique qualities as a couple and to highlight the special journey that you are on. I want to showcase your diversity, and maybe have a few good laughs along the way," concluded Vancouver-Based wedding photographer Clint Bargen. 12 Incredible Wedding Venues in Vancouver Swoon-worthy spots for the West Coast wedding of your dreams. July 19, 2017 By Dominika Lirette / Photo: Hera Films Have you ever dreamed of getting married with jellyfish floating nearby? Or how about with views of the Pacific Ocean and North Shore Mountains as your backdrop? Whether you’re looking for panoramic vistas, an elegant ballroom or a rustic-chic atmosphere, we’ve scouted some of the best wedding venues in the city. (Photo: Studio Jeanie.) 1. Stanley Park Pavilion At this heritage venue, you can get married in a world-famous park and enjoy an elegant indoor reception. The recently renovated pavilion is the oldest standing building in Stanley Park and even played host to Queen Elizabeth II in 1959 (it’s a wedding venue fit for royalty!). With several options available—weddings can take place in Stanley’s Bar and Grill, the Tea Room, park garden and lawn (suitable for weddings with up to 220 guests) and the Lord Stanley ballroom (200 guests seated, 300 standing)—this elegant venue is ideal for large-scale weddings and is just a short walk away from the beautiful Rose Gardens. (Photo: Hera Films.) 2. Brock House Restaurant Say ‘I do’ with the beach and North Shore mountains as your backdrop. The Brock House Restaurant, a heritage mansion tucked away on Jericho beach, is a stunning venue for those looking to host no more than 150 guests. During the off-season, couples can choose to have their ceremony on the north lawn, followed by a reception inside the glass conservatory. But for the summer season (May to September), you can opt to have the reception outside in the garden tent which accommodates slightly larger parties of up to 180 people. (Photo: d’Soleil Photography.) 3. Rosewood Hotel Georgia If timeless elegance is what you’re looking for, the Rosewood Hotel Georgia is the answer. Ornate decor, fine china and superb service (including a wedding planner!) can all be expected from this venue. There are various ceremony and reception combinations for couples to choose from depending on taste and size. For a more intimate wedding with no more than 20 guests, you can get married in the hotel’s Lord Stanley penthouse suite and use the terrace as a reception area. Or for a grander affair, you can rent the Spanish ballroom. The hotel also offers outdoor ceremonies on their Reflections patio, tea ceremonies and traditional Persian ceremonies. And to top it off, the wedded couple gets to spend the night in a deluxe king room. (Photo: Shari and Mike.) 4. Vancouver Art Gallery Get hitched in the heart of downtown with some of the world’s masterpieces as decoration. The first and third floor rotundas are both available options for couples, but the real pièce de résistance is the gallery’s rooftop pavilion. The fourth-floor space offers 360-degree views of the city’s skyline for your special day. The historic building’s stone façade and hardwood floors add an elegant touch, but couples also have the option of personalizing the space with decorations (like the award-winning wedding design by Chris Jodoin, pictured above). (Photo: Lucia Photography.) 5. Vancouver Club A private clubhouse located in Vancouver’s business district, Vancouver Club oozes old-world sophistication and charm—think crown moulding, wood panels, fireplaces and post-modern chandeliers. You can choose from a number of different rooms to walk down the aisle, or you can have your ceremony take place in the lobby before transitioning to the grand ballroom (accommodates 200 to 300 guests) for your reception. The club has a full in-house staff to make sure everything runs smoothly, as well as a seasoned catering department to take care of all your food-related needs.

Vancouver Aquarium Get married with your closest friends, family and fish at the Vancouver Aquarium. In what may be one of the most unique venues in the city, the aquarium lets you celebrate your special day amongst tropical fish and aquatic life—and Instagram-worthy jellyfish. The venue can accommodate small weddings as well as large ones that span throughout the galleries and is guaranteed to provide mesmerizing scenery. (Photo: David and Sherry Photography.) 7. Grouse Mountain While not technically in the city, Grouse Mountain is less than a 30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, giving the illusion of a destination wedding without actually having to travel. This west cost respite’s main draw is its stunning views of the ultimate trifecta: cityscapes, beaches and mountains. Guests are whisked to the top in a gondola overlooking a centuries-old forest and can be hosted in a variety of different venues. Whether you want a small wedding for 15 or a gala-style party for 500, the mountaintop has ample amenities to choose from—like a rustic chalet and outdoor tent to name a few. (Photo: Modern Romance.) 8. Cecil Green Park House This elegant, tudor-style mansion is located on the northwestern cliffs at the University of British Columbia—don’t worry, it’s far away from the frat houses. Known for its beautiful grounds (lots of trees and greenery) and well-kept interior, you may recognize this location from its appearances on TV shows like The Flash, Arrow and Riverdale. Couples can have their ceremony in the home’s private gardens, followed by drinks or dinner on the terrace, or a reception inside the house for up to 140 guests. 9. Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club This golf course provides a stunning backdrop for any wedding—imagine ocean views and lush gardens (we’re already dreaming of sunset!). The south lawn can be booked for your ceremony as well as wedding photos. If you want to keep your reception at the same location, prepare to feast on a delicious meal inside the private clubhouse under the direction of executive chef Peter Crook. (Photo: Union Photography.) 10. Bridges Restaurant This restaurant has a rustic-meets-modern atmosphere with exposed wood beams and iron chandeliers. Located on the edge of Granville Island, guests will have lots to enjoy if they arrive early to your reception (in other words: you don’t have to rush your wedding photos). An added benefit of having your reception at a restaurant is the promise of delicious food (the restaurant can accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated dinner). Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows and a wide-spanning terrace, the city’s skyline and False Creek will be celebrating with you in the background all night long. (Photo: Simple Sweet Photography.) 11. The Loft at Earls Located above the Earls in Yaletown, the Loft’s historic space—brick walls, leather banquettes and open floor plan—makes you feel as if you’ve stumbled into a trendy New York apartment-turned-restaurant. The venue has enough room for 96 guests to indulge in a seated meal, 180 guests to enjoy a dinner reception or 300 guests if you opt for a cocktail reception; it also includes an in-house sound system, as well as screens that you can use for slideshows (to display those childhood photos you just know your mom has saved). There’s no rental fee here, but you do have to spend at least $11,500 (before tax and gratuity) on food—perfect if you’re a fan of the Earls menu. The cost also includes drinks, event assembly and staffing. (Photo: Jasalyn Thorne.) 12. Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Last but not least, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, not only looks like a castle, but has become synonymous with fairytale weddings. With large staircases, crystal chandeliers, gourmet food and a grand ballroom (accommodates up to 400 dinner guests), this award-winning venue is one of Vancouver’s precious wedding gems. Couples have the option of choosing from several wedding packages, but the minimum spending price is $20,000 for food and beverages (the Platinum Package starts at $50,000) and includes a hotel room for the newlyweds to spend the night in and a personalized honeymoon concierge.

The day seemed flawless…which is exactly what Karla looked in her Vera Wang dress. Some of my favourite memories are of Karla’s bridesmaid who was still the life of the party, even though she was in crutches (from an accident at the stagette), the amazing impromptu singing, poems, and push-ups from the family, and honestly just all the laughter. I could have done a blog post of just laughs. This wedding such a joy to document. Thank you Karla and Steve for having us be part of such a special day.

The mastermind behind this brand, Gaby, has such a keen eye and talent, to find the most unique backdrops to shoot her gorgeous gowns. This year shooting in Cappadocia, Turkey, did not disappoint. Shooting hot air balloons at sunrise, walking in caves with camels, exploring ancient ruins and climbing on edges of cliffs, were just some of the stunning adventures we went on while shooting this lookbook. Not to mention the fun we had off set location scouting, indulging in delicious local cuisine, learning the history of stunning part of the world, and the hot air balloon ride we went on before we left! But what made this lookbook truly special was the killer team we had.

They're wedding was everything you could have asked for. Gorgeous weather, great people, touching vows, quality speeches, lots of laughs and a few tears. The cherry on top was that it took place at their own family winery, the one and only, Painted Rock. I couldn't be happier for these two and it's been simply a treat getting to know them and document their love over this year.

But this one was just way too sweet not to post. More accurately, the bride is way too sweet not to post. I dare you look at Sophie and not smile. She just beams happiness, love and light. So of course, her wedding had all the same feelings. It was a sunny outdoor wedding at the Brockhouse, full of drinks and lawn games.

It always looks so stunning during golding hour. The beautiful sunset and these two who are gorgeous and clearly in love and perfectly matched, made our job so easy.

So many great couples, so many breath-taking locations. This couple is definiltey one of the weddings we are looking most forward to. Nicole and Carson are the sweetest couple, so in love, and did I mention they are two of the most lovely down-to-earth people? When Nicole told me her family has a collection of vintage cars (an amazing collection), I was ecstatic and knew exactly what to do for their engagement photos. We had so much fun photographing these two, it also didn't hurt that these two look like models...hello, someone sign these guys up. I can't wait to see how Dream Group will transform Nicole's family property on the Wedding day. There is always something so special about home weddings! We love them!

They wanted a fun wedding that capture the beauty of this winter wonderland... and that's exactly what they got! They had a magical ceremony in the woods (it even started to snow), followed by an epic photoshoot. We climbed down hills, we climbed up hills, we snuck into areas we weren't suppose to be in, we fell into snow wells and scarred our legs...oh wait, that last one was just me. The day was just perfect, they even got a sunset!

These anniversary shoots are becoming more and more popular and I'm loving it! I look back at picture of Ken and I from our wedding and our style has changed so much, so I think it's great to get photos done every couple of years to truly capture your love story. The other great thing about anniversary shoots, is you can be more adventurous or daring in locations than on your wedding day...like a helicopter shoot on top of a mountain! This year, we've photographed anniversary shoots around BC, Iceland and we're about to go to Myanmar to shoot our couple in hot air balloons around temples! So you can get as adventurous as your imagination will take you!

First, of course, their stunning attire. That Berta dress literally took my breath away when I first saw it (and it still does). And Phil’s maroon suite with the cute detail of the one purple flower in Jessica’s bouquet to match it. While we are talking about flowers…OMG, I just adored the creative flowers at their ceremony and reception. Slow-clap to Filosophi and Our Little Flower Factory for transforming the Vancouver Convention Centre. It magically had this light and airy feeling of an outdoor garden party. But all these beautiful things aside, what I loved most at their wedding were the speeches. All the speeches were either down right funny or so very touching. I love when people take this opportunity to express their love and thankfulness towards their friends and family. There’s no doubt that I had some tears in my eyes at this wedding. And last but not least, Phil’s surprise to Jessica of playing a song on a giant piano, straight out of the 80’s hit, BIG. Just typifies how fun and thoughtful these two are towards each other, which is so sweet to see.
