Hi, we’re Will and Lauren Pursell of Pursell Photography!

Pursell Photography is a husband-wife photography team that has photographed 300+ weddings together and has been in business for over 15+ years.
While being known for off-camera lighting skills which allow us to document your event in any circumstance, we also work in a complementary style that creates the best story of your day.

One less thing to worry about

Spend your day focusing on what is important. 

Wedding Photography

Photojournalistic creative photos

You probably ended up here because you were searching for a Vancouver wedding photographer. Will and Lauren photograph every event together as a team to expertly document the story of your day. We work uniquely during the events where we both work as main photographers. One photographer may go for a more creative photo, while the other may get a more traditional photo of the event.

Adventure Elopements

Helicopter, off-road, boat, hike and more

Escape the city to some of British Columbia’s most unique and amazing locations for your elopement or portraits. Take a helicopter to the top of a mountain, an off-road truck to a secret lake, cruise on a boat to a secret waterfall, or go skiing for the day and capture your adventure. Adventure portrait photos are some of our favourite things to photograph. Let’s get into nature and have an adventure!

Vancouver wedding photography FAQ

“What Distinguishes You From Other Vancouver Wedding Photographers?”

“How far in advance should I book you as our wedding photographers?”

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions for any bride. Like most planning, it’s best to start early! The best time to book your photographer is at least 1 year before your wedding date. Some couples contact us before securing the date for their venue to ensure we are available.

“Are you available to travel outside of Vancouver for weddings?”

Yes, we are able to travel outside of Vancouver and the Fraser Valley for weddings. Travel costs will apply and will be discussed with you before booking a date.

“What is your best photography tip for couples getting married?”

For couples looking to capture their big day in an authentic way, invest in a photographer that has a background in photojournalism and off-camera lighting. This will ensure that the photos are natural and put the focus on your celebration. What makes off-camera lighting so versatile is that it can be used in any situation. No matter the environment, photographers are able to adjust the setting of their lights to create a quality photo. Whether it’s a dark forest or a brightly lit, blue sky background, these lights are designed to be adaptable to any situation.

“What’s your favourite part of photographing weddings in Vancouver, British Columbia?”

Our favourite part of being Vancouver wedding photographers is the variety of locations available. We enjoy capturing the first look between the bride and groom, capturing the first kiss as husband and wife, or shooting a wedding at a meaningful location that tells a story about who these two people are.

“What is your best piece of advice to a bride on choosing a Vancouver wedding photographer?”

Try and get a feel for their style and vision of the wedding. Ask to see a few examples of their work. You want to make sure you like the photographer’s work and that he or she has experience photographing weddings. It’s also good to ask about how they capture moments on camera.
