How would you describe the WWC style?

Deeply personal. We create beautiful images through connection, preparation and intuition behind the camera. We know what’s going to be a favourite before we take it because we know what’s beautiful to you. The result is timeless, luminous images of your genuine emotions and interactions that will be just as shareable twenty years from now as they are today.

04

Will we need a second shooter?

When you book you choose 6 or 9 hour coverage, we automatically book a second shooter for you.

no

05

Do you use digital or film? Do you photograph in colour or b&w?
What type of equipment do you use?

Because of the greater flexibility and reliability of digital photography, we are 100 percent digital. Digital also allows us greater security when it comes to backing up your most important shots. That said we are also suckers for the look of film…. We love bringing a polaroid to your wedding and sometimes an old film camera so we can get some extra, creative shots to add to your final product.

We offer both colour and black & white! We generally convert as our eyes and artistic style see best, but this can always be changed at a later date.

We are a solid mix here in the Collective between Nikon and Canon. We also shoot with a full range of professional lenses and we always arrive at your wedding with a back up camera! 

no

06

Will you back up my images?

We back up all of your images immediately to ensure their safety. Actually, Anastasia is completely obsessive about back up and always makes sure to have your images in 2 separate locations. We also bring backup equipment to all weddings in case of equipment failure.

no

07

When do we get to see our photos?

We will provide you with a sneak peek for sharing within 48 hours of your wedding. Your entire collection will be ready for you to view approximately six weeks after your wedding date. Each image is individually edited by your photographer. We will deliver approximately 50-75 edited images for each hour of photographing. We shoot a lot more than this, but not every shot makes the final cut. 

no

09

Do WWC photographers do engagement shoots?

We do all sorts of portrait sessions including engagement and pre and post wedding shoots to document this chapter of your love story from beginning to end. Please contact us for pricing.

How do we make sure we have a team of vendors to match their style and professionalism?

Check out our invite-only vendor directory for our picks of the most creative and professional wedding services in the Sea to Sky corridor. We only recommend vendors that have impressed us repeatedly with their artistry, attention to detail, reliability and service. If they’re on the list, they’re the real deal! See something you like in our photos or have a special request? Just ask us about it - we’ll likely know the person who created the magic and can point you in their direction or introduce you to a vendor that can create something just as original and beautiful for you.

no

Can I add more time to my package?

Our 3, 6 and 9 hour packages are based on our many years of experience photographing weddings that optimize our photographers’ ability to deliver outstanding service and the most beautiful images.
