Wedding Photography

Welcome to the Art of Wedding Photography

A style reflecting experience and sensitivity in an artful way.

My name is Marcus and I live with my family on beautiful Vancouver Island, on the coast of British Columbia.

The Art of Wedding Photography is not about technology, whether digital or film cameras are used. At the heart of good professional wedding photography, is the wedding photographer's vision which is absolutely essential to turn ordinary wedding photographs into photographic art, worthy to be cherished a lifetime. To attain the highest photographic standards in wedding photography, technique and artistic vision are inseparably linked.

For me, as a photographic artist, the art of wedding photography is a mix of emotion, love, beauty, technique and vision.

Professional Background - I was trained as a professional photographer, but learned over time, that photography is a never-ending educational experience and each photo assignment brings new and exciting challenges.

Even though I have a considerable background in corporate and advertising photography, I prefer special events such as wedding photography, as it allows for greater artistic freedom.

I have had the pleasure to photograph weddings for an international clientele, from all parts of the globe. Not every wedding couple spoke English of course, but the universal language of smiles overcomes all linguistic barriers.

To Pose or Not To Pose - Experienced wedding photographers use the art of gentle posing as a creative tool and the results can be stunningly beautiful. Not everyone is a natural model in front of the camera, but in many cases, minor and discreet adjustments are often all that is required to turn ordinary images into beautiful wedding photographs.

Wedding Photo Journalism - This technique is another creative tool of wedding photographers and if used appropriately, will yield wonderful results. It is perfect for capturing the fleeting moments of emotions, tears, joy and laughter which are always a big part of any wedding celebration.

Assistant - I am usually accompanied by my assistant, who is also the organizer in our studio and weddings.

“ your wedding day - a dream come true . . .”

Wedding Packages - are available in various sizes, from a moderate investment which covers the most important elements of wedding photography, to half or full day photo coverage.

We offer elopement packages, depending on seasonal availability.

Photo Cd's – Printable photo cd's are included in our wedding packages, ready to print fine giclée prints, or to be shared via electronic media.

Black & White Wedding Photographs - If you love the timeless and sophisticated look of black and white wedding photography, as so many of our clients do, just let us know and we will include this special service for you. Our custom black & white wall portraits are mounted and matted, gallery style, for a professional and archival print presentation.

Giclée or B&W Silverprints - what is the difference? Giclée prints are produced using digital inkjet printers whereas b&w silver prints are hand-crafted using the optical custom darkroom process. Giclée prints are wonderful for colour, but for high end black & white images, we prefer the optical custom process as we use for our fine art photography.

Designer Wedding Albums – Wedding photographs are best preserved in professional, quality wedding albums, not only to provide a stylish presentation of wedding photos, but also to assure archival permanence of your treasured wedding memories.
