Selecting a photographer is pretty daunting with the number of online blogs and websites to go through. What stood out for us about Will and Lauren was their ability to handle almost any lighting condition. Will and Lauren really are masters of light! Both our ceremony and reception were held in a beautiful Vancouver restaurant, where lighting was dark and intimate. Looking at our photos, they really captured the feel of the room, but you can see everything that's going on.
