April 2, 2021

Are you in search of the perfect photographer to capture your special day? Do you have absolutely no idea where to start looking for a wedding photographer in Victoria, BC, and no idea how to book them?

Focal has you covered!

Here are the top 10 wedding packages in Victoria, BC.

1. Full Day Wedding - 12 Hours - $3500 CAD

Greg Samborski Photography

If you are looking for a full day wedding package, it means you want to capture as many special moments as possible...which this package is perfect for. By the end of the day, I will have over 400 photos of your wedding day to send you later on. That's so many that you could spend another 12 hours just looking at all of them!

My full day wedding package is for those people who don't want extremely edited and enhanced photos. What you want is the real deal. You want the pictures where you look like you so you can easily recall that memory. You want real images taken in an artistic, documentary style of before, during, and after the ceremony. Just because the wedding ceremony is over, doesn't mean the happiness and love stops. You want to be able to look at those photos --the laughs and smiles shared with family and friends-- just as much as the actual ceremony itself. That's why you want the full day package, and that is who it is for.

What to Expect

When you book me, we will either meet up in person or schedule a call to go over your wedding day. This is the perfect time to ask any questions or to let me know what type of photos you want to see from your wedding day.

During our photo session, you will probably barely notice me! My newlyweds often comment that they didn’t even notice me during their ceremony and are thus a little perplexed as to how I captured some of their favourite images. This is the way I intend it to be, discrete, because it’s not my day, it’s yours. However, when it comes time for receptions, groups shots and after-parties I’m not afraid to get right into the mix. Interacting with guests is really the only way to capture things from their perspective.

While our photo session may have ended, our relationship is far from over. Once the images are ready for you, I will send them over digitally. You are free to share and print your photos as much as you like. If you require further retouching, an additional hour is included with every package.

2. Full Day Wedding Package - 10 Hours - $2150

Arcas Media

For clients looking to capture the greater part of their special day including the bride and groom getting ready, the ceremony, formal photos, and typically the whole reception.

What to Expect

After booking, Rob will typically work through the details with the client via email or in person.

On wedding day, Rob will arrive to shoot the wedding party and close family getting ready. Although much of the focus will be on the bride and her bridesmaids, if the men are around, Rob will capture their preparations too. Or, capture the men at their location. These photos tend to be a mix of candid shots as well as a few group shots such as the bride and her mom together.

After the prep, Rob will move to the ceremony location in order to capture guests arriving, as well as the bride and groom before the big moment.

After the ceremony, Rob will shoot candid photos of the couple congratulated by friends/family, and then look to shoot formal photos, first with friends/family, and then with just the wedding party or couple. A photo list of family and friends as well as someone to direct can be exceptionally helpful when shooting formals.

When shooting with the wedding party, Rob looks to get people relaxed and genuinely enjoying the special day. Gentle posing to coax out natural chemistry is Rob’s modus operandi here, with posing examples ready to be utilized to help with inspiration.

With formals wrapped, Rob will join the wedding party in arriving at the reception, shooting their entrance. From here, Rob will eat with the guests, and then typically shoot the reception in its entirety.

3. The Sapphire Wedding Package - 8 Hours - $2900 CAD

Naomi Maya Photography


This package suites the majority weddings if you want the whole event captured.


It includes a beautiful hand-made 8x8 wedding album in a wooden box.

You probably want to spend most of your time with your family and friends, many of whom you might not have seen in a long time. I have a "get it done" approach. I know you want those formal group shots and some other must-haves, but you don't want to spend half the day taking them, right? I've got the experience to help you (and your guests) pose quickly and naturally so we can usually get the must-haves done in about 20 minutes.

You also want beautiful couple portraits, and since you've got a photographer for 8 hours, you probably want to dedicate a fair amount of time to them. We can plan and time during your day to sneak away for 30 minutes or an hour and get those shots you've always dreamed of. We might even be able to arrange it just before sunset, but if we can't that's ok with you too, because what's most important to you is capturing the feelings and the joy of the event, after all you're getting MARRIED!! That's what's exciting about this day... it's not just a photo session!

Message me today and I"ll get back to you straight away (ok, not if it's 3am!). No waiting or wondering if I'm available... I'll let you know the same day. :) I look forward to hearing from you!

4. Gold Wedding - 8 Hours - $4800

Tasha Knight Photography & Design

This 8-hour Gold Wedding package includes a complimentary engagement shoot of you and your partner, an online gallery of colour and black & white photos with unlimited full-sized downloads with full print release (and I don't limit the number of photos you receive! I give everything I deem good), a custom slideshow, and a $480 print credit. This package allows me to capture all the moments of your special day from the small to the big. When you look back on your photos years from now, there will be so many that you will be able to re-imagine the day from start to finish. How special is that?

What to Expect

After you book me, we will set up a call to go over the details of your special day. This is a great time to make any requests or ask any questions you may have. I am here to accommodate your desires, so if there are certain pictures or poses you want, please let me know!

During the session, you probably won't even notice I am there! Photographers are like flies on the wall, you might not notice us but we are there to capture every special moment. I will get a mixture of posed shots so we can get photos of you and your family and friends, along with candid shots throughout the day.

After the session, you will receive an online gallery of colour and black & white photos where you will have unlimited downloads. You will also receive your very own custom slideshow and a $480 print credit if you would like to order some prints.

The 4-hour Silver Wedding package is for those who want lots of memories from your special day but maybe not of the entire day. You want photos of the big moments, such as walking down the aisles, the exchanging of the vows, and the reception afterwards.

This package includes an online gallery of colour and black & white photos with unlimited full-sized downloads with full print release (no limits on photos! I give everything I deem as good). You will also receive a custom slideshow of your photos which is a great way to look back at your special day whether it is a year down the road or 20.

8. Small Wedding Package (COVID Friendly) - 3 Hours - $1199

Naomi Maya Photography


Weddings may look a bit different this year, but love will go on!

Have you been waiting to plan your wedding and finally decided to just DO IT!? 

This package is for you if you have planned a socially-distanced wedding and want to make sure it's all captured, beautifully and safely.

Since most weddings are restricted to 10 people right now, we'll probably have more than enough time to capture everything in 3 hours. We will focus on your couples' portraits and lots of candid images of your day so you can share it with loved ones who couldn't attend.

I'll keep a safe distance with zoom lenses, and at the same time make sure that nothing

is missed.

Contact me today to see if I'm available for your date!

9. Intimate Elopement Session - 2 Hours - $975 CAD

Marlboro Wang Photography 


Elopements are usually mini weddings with a small number of guest. Couples mostly only ask for the coverage of the ceremony, family photos, and some formals. 2 hours is enough for most elopement coverage. For the 2 hours of coverage, the couple will get photos from their ceremony, family photos, wedding party photo and couple's portrait. I always like to arrive on location 30 minutes before the ceremony to scout the location and get ready. During the ceremony, I like to use my zoom lens so I don't have to stand too close to the couple to capture the critical moments such as the ring exchange. I always ask the couple to have a family photo list ready before the wedding so we can do family photos right after the ceremony before people start to wonder around. After the family photo, I will take the couple and the wedding party to my scouted locations or travel off site to do photos. Even though I know how to do great wedding party photos and couple's portraits, I encourage the couple to find their own inspirations such as build a Pinterest board. This way, I know what the couple likes and can make sure the favourite shots and moments are captured. I usually come home with 200 to 400 photos and I pick the best 100 to 200 to do editing. The finished photos will be delivered via online gallery where the couple can download, print and share the photos with friends and family.

Book it HERE.

10. Elopement/Micro Wedding - 2 Hours - $1250

Tasha Knight Photography & Design


I believe in scrunched nose smiles and belly laughs. I want to tell your story in real and raw moments. If those are the types of photos you want, then I am the photographer for you!

In this 2-hour Elopement/Micro Wedding package, you will receive an online gallery of colour and black & white photos with unlimited full-sized downloads with full print release (and I don't limit the number of photos you receive! I give everything I deem good), a custom slide show, and $125 of print credit. This package is for those who don't want the whole big wedding that drags on for hours. You know the little moments are what matters and you want that reflected in your photos. These 2 hours still offer a lot of picture-taking time however, so if you are worried about not getting enough, don't be! You will have enough to fill an entire scrapbook if not two!

What to Expect

After you book me, we will set up a call to go over the details of your special day. This is a great time to make any requests or ask any questions you may have. I am here to accommodate your desires, so if there are certain pictures or poses you want, please let me know!

During the session, you probably won't even notice I am there! Photographers are like flies on the wall, you might not notice us but we are there to capture every special moment.
