Melanie Chapman

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

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 full-day coverage at great value, the Whitebark Pine Wedding Package is the one for you. This package is perfect for couples who want to look back and cherish all the moments, big and small, of their special day. I want you to remember the warm, giddy feeling as you saw your spouse all dressed up for the first time, or the happy tears as you hugged your family who flew from miles away, or the ear-to-ear smiles on you and all your best friends. I want you to have the photo proof that yes, your breakdancing moves really did tear up the dance floor, and I want you to have the beautiful formal photos with your family that you deserve. 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. Bonus: When you book the Whitebark Pine package, you and your partner will also get a free engagement photography session in the lead-up to the wedding (digitals included).

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. This package is perfect for my couples that are looking for simple coverage of the especially BIG moments of the day (e.g. ceremony, family photos, mingling with guests). It is a great option for couples looking for fewer hours of 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 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.

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.

FAQs

How far in advance should we book you? Make sure to inquire as soon as possible! Weddings are often booked a year in advance to ensure your date is secured. If you know you want to book me, make sure to message me and confirm the date with a signed contract and non-refundable booking fee (40% of booked package).; Do you provide a second photographer for weddings? I recommend a second photographer for any wedding with over 50 people. You get more candid moments, and more coverage of all the day's most important moments. Some couples really value a second photographer, because they want to be able to see what happened in the moments of the wedding when they were busy -- the smiles on their friends and family members' faces, or the cute nieces and nephews all dressed up for the big day. The price for an additional photographer varies from $350 to 500, depending on the wedding's length.; Can we order prints through you? Absolutely! We can talk more about it during your free consultation.; We're looking for a wedding videographer instead of photography. Do you offer that? I do! Send me a message or call and let's chat about what you have in mind.; Do you travel for weddings? I love travelling and can accommodate destination weddings or elopements wherever you want to go! Make sure to include that info in your inquiry so we can plan the best adventure possible! I offer reduced rates for these locations:New Zealand / Brisbane / Ireland / Iceland / Winnipeg / Toronto / Montreal / England / Brazil / Italy
