Here at VI, our clients are mostly by referrals. However lately we have been experiencing a growth of clients discovering us on the inter-web. We asked them how’d they find us and it was through Googling for Portrait Photographer in Vancouver or Vancouver Wedding Photography. They would tell us how many sites they’ve looked at and went for us due to our distinctive style. It’s truly humbling when we hear this as Anne and I never set out to take on the photography scene, instead just take great photos and have fun in the process.
So this brought us to our wonderful beautiful couple Carolyn & John who came to visit Vancouver from Dallas, Texas. They’re here to celebrate their 10th Wedding Annivesary. We’ve been communicating months ahead on the location and approach to capture their vow renewal. Carolyn really loved the mountains and the oceans. So we headed off to the majestic Stanley Park for this special occasion. Here are some of our highlights!Show me more please!»
This is a tale of a long distance love story. Jessie and Yang are newly engaged couple. Yang is here completing his Computer Science major at Simon Fraser University when Jessie came to visit. Both of them love Vancouver and its pristine landscape very much. Prior to Jessie returning home to Suzhou, China, they approached us to photograph their engagement session. After much discussion, we all felt it would be real cool to shoot in locations that they can identify with. Photographs that reminded them of their time in Vancouver years from now.
Well we hit the high grounds of SFU located on Burnaby Mountain for their engagement photos. Yang and Jessie led us around the campus to show us places where they usually hang out. Then we dove down to sea level for some sunset beach photography at the Barnet Marine Park. Here are some highlights!

A few moons ago we covered the wedding of Joanne & Kevin at Vancouver’s beautiful Nitobe Garden. As photographers, it is an absolute joy to have visual stories like these get translated into prints. After many years of shooting digital, we like many of our clients still appreciate images showcased in premium pressbooks and albums. Weddings are just the perfect occasion. We’re definitely seeing a renaissance of sorts with printed materials here at VI. It’s simply classic don’t you think?

OK it’s blog catching up time again! We love anything Italian! Maybe it’s the food. Maybe the little red cars from Maranello? Fashion designs… even their little Tuscan villages are cute. It’s that Italian flair. The way they pronounce simple things like photography (fotografia) or dried ham (prosciutto). Everything seems so dolce vita. But the true beauty is really the warmth and fun nature of Italian families which is so charming.
We had a fantastic time photographing Francine & Cam’s 25th Anniversary wedding vow renewal. It was a beautiful backyard garden affair at Francine’s sister’s home in Maple Ridge. Antonella and co. went all out designing a countryside motif. It felt like we were all transported to a cottage home in the Chianti region. Well with all things Italian, there are ALOT food. Hugs. More great food…sometimes followed by hand gestures about the weather (or recipe?). Then hugs again. ’nuff said let’s check out the PJ-esque photos!Show me more please!»
