We Are Wedding Photographers In The Lower Mainland.

We Travel All Over British Columbia And Beyond.

Our style is often described as DIFFERENT.

As a husband/wife team, We photograph every wedding together and compliment each other’s shooting style. Will loves using lighting in his photos and capturing those risky, creative shots. Lauren loves capturing people in the moment. You will often find her hiding behind bushes trying to get those in-between moments.

We love making art that is uniquely different from other wedding photographers you have seen. We candidly document your story and let events naturally unfold throughout your day. We guide you during the portrait session to make you feel comfortable and look your best to create “WOW” photos. We pride ourselves on being “different” in the wedding industry and we want you to get photos unlike anyone else.

About Will

Photographer + Photo Editor

I am working my dream job. I love all the amazing people I get to meet as a photographer and the fact I get to be super creative. We made the move out west in 2008 from Ontario and have not looked back since! When I’m not taking pictures you can find me going on adventures outdoors with Lauren or beating her in Mario Cart.

About Lauren

Photographer + Album Designer + Customer Communications

It’s been a real adventure in my life transitioning from a graphic design career to be working beside my partner/best friend photographing weddings full time. When I’m not behind the camera, I am cooking, skiing, hiking, surfing, biking, drawing, and going on amazing adventures with Will.

Masters of light

You can tell they are masters with working with natural light and the light they bring with them.

Let your story unfold naturally

From multiple angles

We like bad weather

(even though you don’t)

Whether it’s raining, snowing, sunshine, we love to photograph in any location, anytime. We control the scene through our own lighting, which gives us full flexibility and creativity to add interest, drama and moods to create ‘different’ photos. We can even make it look like night in the middle of the day. Some of our favourite images have been taken during crazy rainstorms.

Rainographers

As with any wedding, bad weather is the ghost that haunts every bride-to-be in their sleep. About a week before the wedding I saw that it was supposed rain! Will’s natural talent for putting together a great shot in any condition was certainly noticed! It poured rain for half the day, and was cloudy and dark for the other part. Once we received our wedding pictures we were ecstatic! They made friends of ours wish it had rained on their wedding day. (Of course they would have needed Will as their photographer)

Its not Photoshop that makes you look great

It’s amazing lighting

Lighting masters!

Will is particularly adept at using lighting to great effect. As a result, his photos are striking and, more importantly, unique, and the subjects look great. Not only do the photos capture us at our best, but they double as works of art.

We don’t outsource any of the creative stuff

Just the stuff we are not so good at

Every photo is personally edited

Professional and finished

We edit every image that we give you. All editing is done by Will Pursell. Through editing, he brings out all of the extra details that should be shown, and hides the “not so flattering” details, which creates a polished and finished piece of art. Will loves contrast, images that ‘POP” in colour and emotional black and whites. He uses a digital darkroom technique (mimics the old darkroom technique with film), which draws the eye to the most important parts of the image.

We like the motto “less is more”, and focus our efforts (and Will’s editing magic) on photos that tell your story beautifully and are “Wow!” photos, rather than thousands of “meh” type photos.
