Candice Vera Photography knows how important it is to have a visual record of the day you started a new chapter with your love, and your families. Your wedding photos will be a reminder to you of why you started on this journey, and how far you have come together. As you grow in your marriage, it’s so warming to have those reminders of what matters most.
“This is the start of our sweet little story. The part where your page meets mine. No matter where your tale takes you tomorrow, our story will always read ‘LOVE’.”- Unknown
“When you photograph a face… you photograph the soul behind it.”
– Jean-Luc Godard
Engagement sessions do two important things for you. First, they offer an opportunity to put down the wedding planning to-do lists, and clear a couple hours in your schedule for some quality time with your favourite person! Second, they allow you to get to know your photographer and explore what it’s like to be in front of the camera. I promise it’s not as scary as you might think, and it’s a great warm up for being photographed on your wedding day!
I’m able to serve my clients best through personalized connections. That’s why when you first get in touch with me, the next step is always to schedule an in-person meeting, phone, or video call! I want to hear about your love story, who you are as individuals, and what’s most important to you for your wedding day and your photography.
In my photographic process, I work observationally—watching for moments of authentic emotion and relationally—chatting with you and guiding you—while I compose images that describe who you truly are. I love to take photos of you laughing so hard you cry, giving each other “that look,” and kicking off your shoes to dance to your favourite jam at your reception.
After your wedding you’ll receive your digital images, and I’ll also walk you through the process of choosing your favourites and deciding how you want to save them in print. I believe in print because I believe that our external environment influences our perspective and mindset. When we have visual reminders around us of what (and who) matters most, it becomes easier to put them first and love them well.
