Your Search For A Vancouver Wedding Photographer Is Over
A wedding photographer is something that most of us will only ever look for once in a lifetime, and finding the right Vancouver wedding photographer can be kind of an overwhelming experience. The Vancouver wedding photography market is literally one of the most crowded in North America. So how do you go about finding the wedding photographer that is right for you?
Vancouver Wedding Photographer Styles
The first and most important decision you need to make is about the style of photography that you feel will best reflect you as a couple and the wedding day that you are planning. In Vancouver, wedding photography styles vary widely, from dramatic and fashion-oriented, to fun and whimsical. People use a variety of terms when describing wedding photography. You can expect to hear about ‘photojournalism’, ‘traditional’, ‘candid’, ‘contemporary’, and a host more besides. The reality is that most wedding photographers will employ a number of different styles during the course of a wedding day, and may even stylize the images further through post-production techniques.
Your Wedding Photos Are For Life
What really matters when you look at a wedding photographer’s portfolio is that you respond to the work, that it really speaks to you. Whether those wedding images feel totally natural and unposed, or have a classic and timeless quality, or a high-fashion look, you need to decide what’s most important to you. Ultimately you want to be able to look at your wedding photos in 30, 40 or 50 years time and still feel a deep emotional response. Beware of trends and fads that can quickly start to look dated.
Consider Your Wedding Photographer As A Guest
It’s really important that you connect with your wedding photographer on a personal level for a couple of reasons. Firstly, when you feel comfortable with the person behind the camera, you will look comfortable in front of the camera, and this is really key when it comes to creating wedding images that feel sincere. And secondly, you (and your guests) will be spending a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day so it really should be someone whose company you enjoy. As you interview your potential wedding photographers ask yourself: “Is this someone I would happily invite to my wedding?”.
The Juna Approach To Wedding Photography
For me, photography must be a collaborative process, where we are working together to create photography that feels authentic and natural. I believe that only when we are truly at ease do we reveal our inner selves, so when I photograph I always strive to create an atmosphere that is calm and relaxed. I want you to look at your photographs in years to come and feel the emotions of the day they were created all over again. I want you to feel a connection that ensures you will treasure your photographs more and more as the years go by.

“Justin was an absolutely amazing photographer to work with on one of the most important days of our lives. He was very professional and captured all our memories as we hoped he would. He was very punctual and promised us everything we were looking for. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His work is beautiful. Thank you for a great experience and our pictures will remind us of our special day forever.”

“Utterly professional, totally reliable, we recommend Juna Photography with great enthusiasm. I am totally reluctant to be photographed (not the easiest bride for a photographer), but Justin not only made me feel completely comfortable, the images he captured of our wedding were incredible. What is particularly amazing is Justin’s eye for detail and capturing just the right moment. With his gentle manner, he helped choreograph not just the photos, but the entire event and became a photographer second and friend first. We interviewed a number of photographers, but none made us feel as comfortable as we did immediately with Justin, he is simply amazing!”
