Say “I DO” With These 9 Wedding Photographers in Vancouver

Say I DO With These 5 Wedding Photographers in Vancouver
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

Trust us, when it comes to your wedding photos, you want someone who can capture the magic, not a near-disaster like what happened to me. I opted for a “friend with a fancy camera” situation while organizing a cousin’s wedding. Big mistake.

Needless to say, the “romantic” first dance photos resembled a Jackson Pollock painting, and the cake cutting captured the precise moment my friend realized buttercream facials were not on the guest list.

Thankfully, by the time my next cousin’s wedding came around, I had redeemed myself with my line-up of all the best wedding photographers in Vancouver. 

So if you’re in need of a wedding photographer, check out these pros who I can guarantee won’t make your wedding day into a meme. (Unless, you know, that’s what you’re after.)

How much does hiring a wedding photographer in Vancouver cost?

 Entry level photographers in Vancouver charge at least $1,000, but if you want a more luxury wedding photographer, expect to shell out at least $5,000.

The cost varies depending on the location of the wedding, expertise of the photographer, style, and offerings (prints, albums, etc). 

How We Chose

Style Check: We browsed tons of websites and portfolios until we found a photographer whose style just clicked. Romantic and glowy? Bold and dramatic? There’s a photographer out there for every vibe.
Comfort: It’s a wedding, not a strict photo shoot! We looked for photographers who would blend in and capture genuine moments, not someone who made the bride and groom feel awkward or staged.
Experience: The last thing anyone needs on their wedding day is a newb. So, we looked for a photographer who already knew the best lighting spots and how to navigate any tricky logistical stuff.
Price: Not everyone can afford the most luxurious photographers, so we chose wedding photographers that cater to various budgets. 

1. Demin Photography – Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Address: 1055 W Georgia St Suite 2100, Vancouver, BC V6E 3P3, Canada

Contact Details:+16048002019

Just a glance at his online gallery, and it’s clear as day that Demin has a real knack for capturing genuine emotions. We’re talking stolen glances between sweethearts, belly laughs with bridesmaids, and those happy tears that well up during toasts.

His photojournalistic approach lets the day unfold naturally, and he somehow manages to snag these perfect moments that feel true to the couple.

Don’t get us wrong, Demin can definitely stage a stunning posed shot, but his strength lies in the candid moments. He’s like a wedding ninja, blending into the background and capturing the raw energy of the day.

And while we all know weddings can be expensive, Demin gets that too. He offers a variety of packages to fit different needs and budgets. This is perfect for those couples who want amazing photos without breaking the bank.

However, we think his package descriptions could be a tad more detailed. We had to schedule a consultation with Demin to get a clear understanding of what exactly was included in each package.

Pros

  • Budget-friendly packages
  • Candid moments
  • Passionate photographer

Cons

  • Wedding package details 

Customer Reviews

Captured many amazing photos 

“Would highly recommend Demin.  My wife and I hired him for our wedding photography, and we had a great experience.  His communication leading up to our wedding was professional, prompt, and informative, and he was very accommodating. On the day, he arrived on-time and fully prepared and did a wonderful job.  Even our guests either had very kind things to say of him. He captured many amazing photos, and we are very pleased with the results. He delivered everything as promised and within the timeline he had provided.”

Working with Demin was the best choice we have made

“Working with Demin at our wedding was the best choice we have made! The quality of his photos overcame our expectations and he was able to capture our connection and personality as a couple! Moreover, he made us and our family and friends comfortable during the whole process without losing the quality of each moment captured in his pictures! All our loved ones felt stunned by the pictures and we are sure they will be a forever memory for our family.”

2. Sachin Khona Wedding Photographer

We have to say that Sachin definitely has an eye for the artistic and the authentic. His portfolio is bursting with beautiful photos that tell a story—from the nervous jitters of getting ready to the pure, unadulterated joy of the dance floor.

Sachin has a way of catching those candid in-between glances and stolen kisses that make your heart melt. 

And his photos have that priceless aesthetic every bride dreams of having for their wedding day. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want their wedding photos to look like they belong on a page of Vogue?

While we adored Sachin’s artistic approach, if you’re looking for super traditional, posed photos, you might want to keep searching. But for those who want a destination wedding outside of Vancouver, Sachin’s down for the adventure.

Also, Sachin’s expertise comes at a premium. His packages aren’t the cheapest, so be sure to factor that into the wedding budget.

Pros

  • Artistic vogue like photos
  • Priceless aesthethic
  • Destination weddings 

Cons

  • Not for super-posed pics
  • Premium prices

Customer Reviews

Such a wonderful presence to have at your wedding 

“Love that I’m the 100th review for Sachin!! There’s a reason Sachin is 100/100 on the 5 star review; it’s because he’s super talented, professional and such a wonderful presence to have at your wedding. We were instantly impressed by his galleries and were very excited to have him as our photographer, but we didn’t know just how easy it would be to work with him on our actual big day! He was super helpful with timing and communication, all our guests loved him, and he wasn’t intrusive in any way. Most importantly, the gallery of photos we got afterwards didn’t fail to impress. There are so many genuine, beautiful, candid, amazing shots. We’re so happy with his work. Honestly, can’t say enough good things!” 

Expert at his craft, attentive and supportive

We want to thank you for everything over the past week (and months) leading up to our special day. You provided guidance and support far beyond what we could have ever imagined! Not only did you capture our wedding as we envisioned it, but you also provided direction to help make it even better. 

You’re not only an expert at your craft, but you also have an innate ability to provide comfort and warmth to everyone around you. You were so attentive and supportive to our family and guests. We believe this is why your shots turn out so well—your kind spirit reflects in how people respond to the shots you take.”

3. Tomasz Wagner Photo & Films

Website

Tomasz catches those fleeting, unscripted moments that turn into cherished pictures you’ll find yourself looking at over and over again. Thanks to his classy editorial style, he uses light and shadow beautifully to create stunning compositions that are both unique and artistic. 

So, if you’re looking for a photographer who will micromanage every pose and tell you exactly where to stand, Tomasz might not be your guy. His strength lies in capturing those candid moments, so be prepared to relax, have fun, and let him work his magic.

Tomasz is a sought-after photographer, so be prepared to be flexible with scheduling, especially during peak wedding season. And he’s definitely on the higher end of the wedding photography spectrum. 

But hey, if you’re looking for top-tier quality and a truly unique aesthetic, then it might be worth the splurge.

Pros

  • Classy editorial style
  • Top-tier quality photos
  • Unique and artistic photographer

Cons

  • Not good at pose directing
  • Scheduling is limited

Customer Reviews

Communicative, organized, and professional

We hired Tomasz for our wedding (and pre-wedding) photography needs in Vancouver, and working with him was a true pleasure. Tomasz is communicative, organized, and professional. He made a point to ask us thorough questions in our introductory conversation and sent thoughtful emails to our guests beforehand to introduce and familiarize himself. His creative vision is epic, and from the few photos we have seen so far (we only got married last week), I am incredibly pleased with what he produced. Tomasz is friendly and approachable, and working with him was easy and comfortable. He’s very good at going a bit “unnoticed” while he’s working, in that our guests didn’t freeze up around him, and my husband and I felt natural when he was photographing us. Tomasz is definitely working within the premier league of his field – I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him.”

Beautiful wedding photography 

“We are so grateful to have found Tomasz and have him said yes to be a part of our day. Tomasz’s eyes for capturing the chaotic day was beautiful; we had photographs not only of what you would expect from wedding photography but also photographs of the most mundane objects around. The whole album we got at the end was cohesive and just the story we hope to tell. Thank you so much Tomasz, all our guests had a blast being photographed by you!”

4. John Bello Photographer

Address: 1155 Seymour St #1202, Vancouver, BC V6B 1K2, Canada

Website

John captures the raw emotions, the joy, and the pure love of a wedding day in a way that feels timeless. He has a real knack for storytelling through his lens. His photos flow beautifully, capturing the entire day’s energy from start to finish.

While John won’t give instructions on how to pose every second (he doesn’t work like that), he does a great job getting some classic family portraits and couple shots, but they are more relaxed and candid.

He blends seamlessly into the background, capturing everything without being intrusive. It’s like having a cool friend document the day rather than a stuffy photographer barking orders.

And we love John’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in his work. He makes sure everyone feels comfortable and is represented in his photos.

Sure, his work is worth a pretty penny, but it’s worth it for wedding photos that come out looking divine with a touch of vintage charm.

Pros

  • Makes everyone comfortable
  • Relaxed & candid shots
  • Captures the day’s energy

Cons

  • Costly

Customer Reviews

If we were to do it again, John is first on our list 

“John exceeded our expectations as our wedding photographer. From his ability to capture amazing moments, to making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, and his ability to make snap decisions based on what was going on in the moment. All of this and more, helped John fit into the fabric of the day and make it that much more special. He provided expert consultation when we were unsure of what we wanted and was kind in giving direction when we were shooting our engagement photos and our posed wedding photos.

If we were to do it all again, John would be the first on our list to lock down. We highly recommend him for any special occasion that you want to remember for the rest of your life. Thanks John!!!”

If I could give one million stars I would

“John is an absolutely wonderful person, and was such a joy to have as our wedding photographer! He was absolutely everywhere at once, and captured the most beautiful, important, and telling moments. He helped us feel comfortable and natural, and was genuinely excited and invested in our celebration. If I could give 1 million stars I would!! Absolutely recommend John, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours!”

5. Nadia Hung Photography

Address: 2125 York Ave, Vancouver, BC V6K 1C4, Canada

Website

Nadia goes beyond stunning snapshots with her use of film photography. Her photos have this timeless, almost painterly quality that you just don’t get with digital. It gives the whole wedding album a romantic, ethereal vibe that perfectly suits any aesthetic.

She also gives great direction during posed shots, which is helpful for those of us who are non-models.

And while the posed photos she takes are beautiful, it’s the candids that truly bring the day back to life when flipping through the album.

She’s really an absolute pro at keeping things calm and collected throughout the day—even when things are running a bit behind schedule. However, her chill vibes and excellent film shots come at an expensive price.

Pros

  • Film photography
  • Candid & noncandid shots
  • Calm & collective

Cons

  • No digital photography
  • Expensive

Customer Reviews

Quality of work is undeniably gorgeous 

“My wife and I couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. Nadia and her assistant did a superb job capturing the whirlwind weekend of events, from the welcome party to the ceremony, reception and the farewell brunch. The quality of her work is undeniably gorgeous, we love that she shoots on actual film in addition to digital. There’s a texture and weight to her work that is unique and exactly what we were looking for in shooting our fairytale wedding. Nadia is warm, efficient and imminently professional. We recommend her without reserve to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!”

Very detail oriented and easy to get along with 

“I absolutely loved having Nadia and her team at our wedding. I instantly fell in love with her style after browsing many different photographers on instagram. She is very detail oriented on her photos (including portraits and detail shots). I cannot emphasize enough how amazing her use of lighting was. She is definitely easy to get along with, communicative, and supportive! 100% Recommend.”

“The BEST wedding photographer! Lucho and his team did an amazing job filming, taking photos and even helping with other little things throughout our big day. They all went above and beyond to make our day special. The end result was equally as amazing. We love our photos and videography. They were very easy to work with, organized, professional and had timely communication and were reasonably priced as well.”

“Lucho and Farawayland Productions was an absolute pleasure to photograph and film our wedding. The package we arranged with Lucho was first class in every detail, starting with our engagement photo shoot, where we selected Stanley Park. Following the engagement shots, we were given digital copies of all the photos, which we used for our invitations and guest book. Lucho called us several times to arrange the day of the wedding, making sure no detail was overlooked. His crew of photographers captured the day of the wedding in a natural, yet extremely professional manner. The wedding was both photographed and filmed, by a crew of four individuals. Following our wedding, Lucho edited all of the photos and put his personal touch on them ensuring that the quality of each picture was just as memorable as the day itself. Everything about Lucho and his team I would recommend, from the quality of the shots, the ability to get both staged and candid moments, as well as the post-wedding process in receiving the pictures, the photobook and the video. As someone who saw Lucho’s work at a friend of ours wedding prior to our own, we were lucky that he had availability for our date. We could not have imagined our special day without him.”
