we've got answers

From timing to style to equipment to costs, at this point, you probably have a lot of questions.
That’s okay, 

Here are answers to the questions we hear most often. It’s also possible you’ll have a few more - no wedding or couple is the same, and we love your originality!

Read through our questions and answers, then reach out by phone or email to discuss your dream day. We are more than your photographers; we are your fellow wanderers, wedding experts, ceremony lovers and biggest supporters, we can’t wait to make your day more delightful.

01

How would you describe the WWC style?

Is it possible to be fun, fresh and still really classic? We think so. Is it possible to be to blend-into-the-background professional and still be laid back and joke-crackingly fun to work with? Yup. And our passion for photography shows through in each and every shot. We love weddings so much we still cry at the vows. Every. Single. Time. We’re also really conscious about making sure that your photos don’t look dated, because what’s trendy now, just might look ridiculous later. We will help capture the authentic moments and genuine interactions of your day in simple, luminous photos that will still look great in 20 years.

02

How do we choose the right photographer for our wedding?

We hope you see something unique in each of our galleries and that one or two of them capture your attention immediately. We love it when you’re inspired by our work and feel connected to a particular photographer. Sometimes you’ll be on the fence between two or three artists. That’s okay! Contact us with your dates and your preferred photographer or your top two, and we’ll help you narrow down your choices and confirm their availability for your wedding date.

03

How many weddings do you shoot each year?

We are a boutique agency; we take on a very limited number of weddings in any given year. This allows us to give each wedding the attention it deserves. 

no

04

Will we need a second shooter?

When you book your photographer with the WWC for 6 hours or more, we automatically book a second shooter for you. In addition, Anastasia oversees all the details of your day from communicating your timeline and special requests to your photographer and second shooter to checking your location ahead of time for any unexpected changes and overseeing the backup of your images for both photographers. 

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.

no

Once we have chosen our photographer 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.
