A wedding day is a celebration more than anything, so let's capture the celebration and give yourself a beautiful memory to look back on. I want you to be able to put yourself back into the moment where you said 'I do' or 'heck yes' and relive the emotions. If you're looking for high-value half-day coverage that will cover all of the day's big moments (e.g. ceremony, family photos, mingling with guests), then the Pacific Willow Wedding Package is right for you. This package is perfect for couples looking for fewer hours than full-day coverage but who would still appreciate having high-quality images of their loves ones and the moments they shared. I want you to look back and remember the ear-to-ear smile as you saw your spouse for the first time, or the first time you saw your reflection, or the moment you burst into laughter at your best friend's stand-up improv. More than anything, I want you to walk away from this meaningful day knowing that you were able to do and experience everything you possibly wanted.

Hey there! Glad you stopped by, I'm Melanie and I've been a visual storyteller for over 7 years now! As a passionate West Coaster, I'm all about finding moments of beauty within the environment and wherever we can. I would classify myself as a people person because I love capturing moments for souls to keep for themselves. I love Vancouver because it's the perfect combination of being close enough to the mountains to explore the wilds, yet only a short walk away from the sweetest coffee shop to share stories with friends or meet new people. I'm constantly searching for the best pockets of light in the places that are precious to my friends and clients. There are so many beautiful locations to discover! I value respect, joy and passion for life and I would love to show you how I can capture beautiful imagery to incorporate artistry into the day to day. I'm honoured to work with amazing clients who value photography and can attest to its impact on their lives. What are the names of my packages? The environment has played a big role in my life and I want to share a little piece of that so I named all of my packages after my favourite BC trees! Proudly serving the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC Community
The StoryWe've been professional, full-time photographers and videographers for over a decade. We had formal training in fashion and filmmaking. Our work has been featured in magazines and has had the fortune to receive multiple awards. This makes us artists and storytellers at our core. We search for the story within you and bring it to our images with experience, creativity, and sophistication. We'll be your GuideWe will coach you through everything. Don't worry about looking stiff or not knowing what to do. We will be there by your side, especially with people that "don't know where to look" and "don't know where to put their hands." If directions are what you need, we have you covered. Our ApproachWe understand that you're unique. Some people want to look like a model, some people just want to be candid... We do both, and we do it in a way that is more than just creating, and capturing your memories. It's about you enjoying those moments. They're true to you, in the moment, and created with an intention. Kind Words"I've had the privilege to work together with Lucho on several occasions. He's masterful at what he does, combining artistic vision with technical skills.It's one thing to take high-quality pictures with a camera and do some touching up; it's another when someone is able to express the essence of the moment itself. Lucho was excellent at understanding what I wanted in my photos and worked with me until I got results that exceeded my expectations!"-Alex
