Whistler Wedding Photography
I’ve been a Whistler wedding photographer for over 20 years in the Whistler area. As a lifelong photojournalist, I bring a unique perspective to wedding photography, capturing what photojournalists call the decisive moment.
My Wedding photography has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and I was a featured wedding wire photographer for having my client ratings in the top ten percent of Canadian wedding photographers.
How much do you charge?
- I’m what I call a bespoke photographer, no two weddings are the same. After a consultation where we can chat about what you’re looking for in your photos, how long will the wedding will go for, and how many guests are you are expecting, then I can send you a custom made wedding package. As a baseline, my smallest wedding package would be three hours, enough to cover getting ready before the wedding, the wedding ceremony, wedding portraits, and an intimate wedding reception, is $1,500.
How many pictures will I get?
- As a photojournalist, I’m what known as a heavy shooter. I take a lot of photos, as it’s better to have too many photos and then to edit it down to a reasonable number than it is to not have enough. A good rule of thumb might be 150 to 200 for an elopement style wedding, while a wedding with a longer timeline and more guests might be 300 to 800 photos.
When do I get my photos?
- Keeping with my bespoke ethos, I do all my own photo processing. Nothing I do is farmed out to external editing services, so a lot depends on where we are in the wedding season. That said, I have as much of an urge to get a sneak peak at the photos as anybody else, so I’ll have a look through the photos and do up 15 or 20 finished photos from the day within a few days of the wedding. For the finished photos, two to four weeks would be a good rule of thumb.
What can I do with the photos once I get them?
- It’s a simple answer, you get to do whatever you like with the photos. You don’t need to come to me for prints or permission to publish them on social media. I don’t put watermarks or other photo controls on the photos.
