About Will

Photographer + Photo Editor

As a passionate wedding photographer, I am grateful to have found my dream job where I get to meet incredible people and showcase my creativity. In 2008 Lauren and I made the exciting move from Ontario to the West. The change has only brought endless opportunities for us to live our life to the fullest. When I’m not behind the lens, I love to spend my time exploring the great outdoors doing sports like skiing, mountain biking and surfing.



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.



What Makes Us DIFFERENT?


Enjoy our wedding day without worrying

The beautiful photos aside, this was what I was thankful for the most: that we could actually enjoy our wedding day without worrying.

Let your story unfold naturally

From multiple angles

We like bad weather

(even though you don’t)

We embrace the challenges that come with capturing stunning images in any weather condition. By utilizing our own lighting equipment, we have more control over the scene, allowing us to bring a unique perspective and depth to our photos. Our skills and experience enable us to create breathtaking images that perfectly capture the essence of each moment, even in the most challenging weather conditions. We are proud to have taken some of our best photographs during rainstorms and other challenging conditions.



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

As a photographer, I take great pride in editing each and every image that I give to my clients. The editing process is where I truly get to bring out all the extra details that should be highlighted and hide the “not so flattering” parts to create a polished, finished piece of art. I have a passion for contrast, images that “POP” with vibrant colors and emotional black and whites. My digital darkroom technique, which mimics the traditional darkroom technique used with film, draws the viewer’s eye to the most important elements of the image. I take the time to ensure that each photo I deliver is not only beautiful but also tells a story.
