The Wedding Experience

Wondering if we're a good fit? What's an Impossible Wedding like?

You'll look amazing

We'll use relaxed posing techniques to get amazing, natural portraits while still having fun, even if you hate having your picture taken. Meticulous control of light, shadow, and blur give totally flattering results for everybody. We have loads of modeling and fashion experience to give you that magazine look. Even if it's a candid moment, we'll make you look good too.

We work incredibly hard

Great moments come and go quickly so we're always on alert for what's going to happen next. We capture the moment using the best, fastest, most responsive equipment around. We're totally exhausted after each wedding, but it's always worth it at the end when we see the results.

Want photography to be an enjoyable part of your day

Very few times in life will any of us spend so much time and money to look our best. I'll help you find ways to make our photo session incredible. Chill out somewhere cool, take a ride on a carousel -- do something memorable on your wedding day! If you're up for it, I am too.

We'll support you

We're people people. You'll be spending a lot of time with your us on your wedding day, so we promise to be one of your biggest fans, your cheerleader, to have a ready smile, to make you laugh, keep you calm when you're jittery, and to make you look the most beautiful you've ever looked in your life.

Jump right in like an old friend

Think of us as like good friends who happen to take great pictures. We're a lot of fun and try not to take ourselves too seriously. We'll blend right into whatever you've planned and be totally discreet and unobtrusive. After all, your wedding is about you, not your photographer. I've spoken both Chinese and Russian at the same wedding, put on boutonnieres, even driven guests around to help out.

Not your parents' photos

Stiff poses, fake smiles, pictures in the shade, and lots of unflattering flash shots: that's how wedding photography used to be, and sometimes still is. We will do much, much better for you. We like pushing the creative envelope while keeping things real. We want your friends to be wowed and jealous!

Shoot in any light, rain or shine

From the blazing noon sun, to the rain and wind (often on the same day in Vancouver), whatever the conditions, rain, shine, bright sunshine, or dark reception hall, we get great photos. The more challenging the conditions, the better the photos, in fact. Never worry about us getting the shot.

We love weddings and it shows

The embarrassing games, the great cultural and religious traditions, the solemnity of the vows, the wonderful people I meet, the way they welcome me into their private and public moments, the love, the joy, the tears, the rush of capturing an incredible moment, the challenge of always doing better than my last wedding. That's why I love doing what I do.

We'll take care of you from start to finish

The Consultation

It's important to meet with us in person prior to booking. You'll need to make sure whoever you choose for your photography is a good match in terms of photography style, but also in personality. After all, you'll be spending a lot of time with your photographer and need to find one that you're totally comfortable with.

The Engagement Shoot

When you book with us, an engagement or pre-wedding shoot is a great way to get to know each other and build a wonderful working relationship. We'll shoot for an hour or more, and you'll learn to relax and experience our style of photography and be comfortable with how the wedding day photography will unfold. Our clients will often use the engagement shoot images for save the date cards or the actual wedding invitations.

Help with your planning

We'll help you create a schedule that provides enough time for all of your planned events, including photography of course. We've seen lots of asian and western wedding ceremonies (and their hybrids), customs, venues, and their logistical challenges so are very uniquely positioned to offer useful advice. We'll touch base regularly to make sure you're well taken care of.

The Big Day

We arrive in ample time, early, to begin our coverage. We'll make sure we introduce ourselves to everyone, and generally mix in a few quick posed shots while grabbing all of the great moments. We'll make sure to respect any family or wishes from your venue or wedding official. At some point, either before or after the ceremony, we'll head off to do the bride and groom portraits for a few hours. We'll stay through the reception, speeches, dancing, until the night is done.

The Reveal

While you're enjoying your honeymoon, we start editing your images. One at a time, using the latest software, we'll ensure consistent quality colour and transform these images into their final form. Several weeks after your wedding, we'll contact you with both your highlights slideshow and completed collection of images online. Sit back, bring tissues, and enjoy!
