Wedding & Elopement Photography, Travelling Vancouver Island

Congratulations on finding your life partner! My wedding photography packages can accommodate any wedding timeline, ranging from 1.5 hours to a full-coverage 10 hour day. My goal with wedding photography is to capture a series of images that emotionally connect you to the memory through a candid, natural approach. By creating a comfort with my clients, you feel confident in front of my lens, naturally.

How many hours of photography coverage will I need for my wedding?

Depending on what you would like captured and the timeline of your wedding day will determine the hours of coverage needed. Would you like the getting ready details captured, as well as the tipsy dancing at the end of the night? Then you will need a full-coverage package ranging from 6-10 hours. If you are looking to only capture the ceremony and formal portraits, then the 1.5 or 3 hour will be sufficient. Read my in-depth article about how long the photo parts take here!

Does my package include an engagement session?

My 6, 8, and 10 hour wedding photography packages include an engagement session. For any of the other packages, you may purchase the session additionally.

How many images will come with my wedding photography package?

On average, I deliver approximately 75 images per hour. Variables such as quantity of guests, formal photograph requests, time allotted for intimate formals, wedding activities and if you add a second shooter will affect the final number.

Can we add video to our wedding photography package?

Yes. You can add a drone video footage option to any wedding package. This is a 5-10 minute video with voice-recorded vows.

Can we add a second shooter to our wedding photography package?

Yes. You can hire an additional shooter for $100/hour, minimum 3 hours.

How long does it take to receive our wedding photos back?

For 1.5 and 3 hour wedding photography packages, the images are delivered within 3-5 weeks. For 6, 8, and 10 hour packages, the images are delivered within 6-8 weeks. Sneak peek images are delivered within 7 days.

What is your Covid-19 cancellation policy?

Should the situation arise where you must cancel the photography services due to any natural disasters including pandemics, earthquakes, floods etc. you must try to reschedule a mutual date with your photographer. If no mutual date can be scheduled, a full refund of deposit minus any expenses will occur. Expenses =$100 invoicing fee, $400 engagement session. Rescheduling once is free, but every other time is a $100 surcharge.

Do you charge for travel?

Yes. If I am travelling further than 50km from my home address, I will charge any gas, ferry fees etc. that are incurred.

Do you retouch the images?

My editing style is true-to-color with minimal editing to try to keep things as natural as possible. I will sharpen eyes, brighten eyes, whiten teeth and remove acne in close up images.

“Deanna shot our engagement photos and wedding photos and they both turned out beautiful. We loved working with her, she made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We haven’t really had professional photos done so we were a bit nervous but she is super down to earth and knows what she’s doing so we just felt at ease. Her style is exactly what we wanted, not too filtered or edited and the photos are natural but also vibrant even on a darker wet day like our wedding day was. I highly recommend her to anybody, she’s great at what she does and she has such a kind soul to boot!” -Natalie & Tosh
“Omg she is amazing! From the engagement shoot that gets you over the camera shy for the wedding, to the amazing candid shots on the big day! 100% recommend for any chance of capturing any important moments of your life, we will definitely be booking her in the future for more moments to be captured on film! And bonus she is is pretty cool too 👌” -Brooke & Adam
“Dee is very accommodating, organized and great at what she does. You can tell it’s not a ‘job’ but a passion. Having an engagement session at quite possibly the most beautiful place on that part of the coast was the best idea! We got to know each other and it made our wedding day experience easier! Dee is punctual and polite. She caught many memorable moments and photos I will never be able to capture again. Dee’s attention to detail and o natural approach to photography makes her photos even more real. Her pricing is fair and affordable! Her photographer partner was lovely also! We are forever grateful! Our photos are complimented often! Thanks Dee!” -Emily & Shaun
