Some kind words from happy photography clients :)

“Dee is AMAZING. I was so concerned about getting our wedding photos done simply because I’ve see so many wedding photos that are beautiful and I thought to myself how is it possible for me and my husband to look that good? Let me tell you, it’s possible. Dee made it easy to just be ourselves which showed through on camera. I have our engagement and ultimately our wedding photos throughout our house. She has a way of capturing the beauty of the island along while making the bride and groom (or whoever she’s shooting) the focus of the shot. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! Thanks for everything Dee!!

“Deanna shot our wedding ceremony and couples photos at Little Qualicum Falls in September, and did an amazing job! She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and had so many great little tricks to get everyone engaged naturally, even the dogs! She went over and above to get great shots of us and our guests. She delived a large amount of beautiful and well edited photos in the time she promised us. We were amazed at how reasonable her prices were for the quality we received. I would absolutely recommend her for any special event or photo shoot, and I will use her again if I ever need another photographer! Thanks Deanna!”- Leah and Carla

“What an experience! I’m truly in love with how well our family photos turned out. We asked for our background to capture specific elements of island life and Deanna delivered! She made us feel so comfortable and shared her knowledge of the surroundings we were in. We highly recommend her as a photographer! Thank you for being awesome!”- Michelle, Shad, Justus

“You truly do have a gift at capturing the essence of a family. I’ve been looking for someone who can do what you do for more than twenty years. You have such an amazing way of getting us to try new things, even when some of us – you know who I mean ;) – are harder to come along with your ideas than others. Without it, it’s simply everyone smiling their best manufactured smiles into a camera, leaving a lot of sore jaws and pictures that, while pleasant enough, don’t tell any kind of a story about who the people in the photos are. You are a master and gifted artist and because these pictures for us, will go on to serve as some of our best records and recollections of who we were as a family when we and the generations to come look back, I’m so very grateful that we found you.”- Sharon

“My family hired Deanna to do our family photo shoot this year, after seeing the amazing wedding photos she did for Erin and Jake. The weather turned out to be completely uncooperative, with gale force winds and rain on the day that we had chosen. We’d hoped to have them taken in places around our 5-acre property, but it wasn’t to be.  And, since the day we chose lined up with when we could have everyone (kids and grandparents) at our home, the photo shoot had to go ahead with the pictures taken inside. I was pretty disappointed when we couldn’t have the photos taken outside as I was worried they might be boring or too staged looking, but it turned out not to be the case as they turned out AMAZING!! In fact, for this year’s Christmas card, it will be hard to select our photo of choice! 

Deanna was unbelievably professional, patient, and paid attention to every detail. She spent time ahead of the day, memorizing all of our names (include the dog’s) and went out of her way to ensure our photos reflected who we are as a family. And though the photos taken inside our home turned out fantastic, she offered to make a separate trip for a 2nd shoot, at no extra charge, the next day (when the weather was predicted to be much nicer). Unfortunately, the grandparents couldn’t be here on the second day, but the pictures of us and our children (and of our family dog, Ella) turned out incredible!! Oh, and last, but not least, we received a link to the final proofs from Deanna, in less than the 3 weeks she’d promised. Nice!

I would not hesitate to recommend Deanna and look forward to her returning for our next family photo shoot in a year or two’s time. She is one talented gal!” -Sharon

“We had a small wedding on New Year’s Eve of last year and were lucky to have Deanna as our photographer. It was a smaller wedding with close family and friends. We really wanted photographs that would capture that feeling and give us something to take away from our special day. Deanna (and her assistant) did not disappoint. She was so friendly and relaxed and made all of us feel at ease, especially the children that were involved. Deanna was able to capture the spontaneity and naturalness of the moments as well as create some beautiful formal images for us to treasure. Our formal shots were on a beach in December – The backdrop was beautiful, and freezing! Deanna somehow managed to capture so many incredible images in a very short time, letting us get back inside to warm up. Deanna has an eye for detail – She took a photo of every single aspect from our wedding. The reserved signs on the chairs, our table numbers, decor, food, centerpieces, etc. Much more than the expected dress, shoes, rings. We would highly recommend Deanna and Devee Photography.” -Michelle

“We had a wonderful experience with Devee Photography a couple of years ago, we went to a wonderful spot that means a lot to my family, Devee was great to work with, really relaxed, and great fun with the kids. We took a lot of images, really good quality shots, lots of different Places. Deanna has a knack for capturing people. Overall a fantastic photographer experience. I would highly recommend her!” -Anna“Deanna was great , she’s done a couples shot , an engagement shot and my bridal shower. We’ve also booked to do baby photos in early May. Shes always easy to get a hold and flexible. She seemed to have looks of really neat creative ideas we hadn’t heard of before. We really like working with her and always get great pictures. We cant wait for our new born baby shot!” -Chloe and Mike

“You perfectly captured my family. The photos are beautiful! My husband and I are so excited to have up to date photos, finally.” -Emily

“Thank you sooo much De, absolutely LOVE the photos, and again was soooo much fun!!!” -Vicky

“My family and I would like to thank you for the beautiful photos that you took. They are absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to hang them on our walls and share them with the rest of the family. You are a very talented photographer. We had so much fun! Thank you.”  -Jenny and Family

“Thank you so so much Deanna Veerman!!! The photos you took of our family are gorgeous and brought me to tears! Thank you so so much!! When her and I chatted we decided on a family photo shoot as the only photos we currently were from Christmas 😂 She was very quick to respond to every msg and text and called me within the first few days. She is so easy to talk to and really captures the love in your family. I came to tears when I received our photos!  Thank You so so much!”- Jaime

“Beautiful! Deanna’s photos captured our moment and our spirit. Our ceremony site was a slight hike and she was willing to come for the adventure and capture moments along the way adding glimpses of the entire event. I love the photos!!” -Willow

“Hi Deanna, thanks for the email and the pictures; they’re great! I doubt anyone has ever taken that many pictures of my Mother and got her eyes open in almost all of them! Seriously, very happy with your work and these pictures. Thanks again.” -Ian
