You want to work with an awesome wedding photography team
There are very few husband & wife photography teams that shoot weddings together. We have photographed over 140 weddings together. This means you get two experienced photographers with you all day. We work exceptionally well together and have a great system to ensure we are both able to work to our strengths.

You want high quality images, and high quality printed products

We work with professional printing labs in Edmonton, Toronto and New York to produce the finest wedding albums, metal prints, acrylics, and canvases.

Not only do we want your images to be timeless, but we want your wedding album and wall portraits to stand the test of time.  In 30 years we want you be able to sit down with your family and friends and enjoy looking through your wedding pictures.

You want to know who you are working with
When you hire Deep Blue Photography you are hiring Sunny & Jess. You meet both of us. You know both of us. We take all your pictures. We edit all your pictures. There will be no strangers showing up on your wedding day to take pictures. There will be no strangers editing your photos.

It is common for wedding photographers to use second shooters or assistants that the couple will only meet for the first time on the morning of the wedding. Most of our couples meet with the two of us at least 3 times prior to the wedding.

It is also becoming more common for wedding photographers to outsource their editing. They do this to save time so they can shoot more weddings. We understand this practice, but we would rather shoot fewer weddings and handle all the culling and editing ourselves. We believe our clients deserve 100% of our attention on their wedding pictures.

You are not a model and we won't treat you like one
100% of the images we have photographed and shared are real people. We do not share pictures of models in styled shoots – we do not participate in styled shoots. All of our images you will see are from real weddings with real couples.  One of our biggest strengths is capturing true moments in a creative, unique manner – because all of our couples are unique.

 

You want fun, creative, and artistic wedding photos
With easy access to technology, it is true that just about anybody can photograph a wedding. However, few people can photograph a wedding well. Even fewer can capture a wedding day exceptionally. We have both been recognized nationally and internationally – as a team and individually – with numerous awards from the Professional Wedding Photographers Of Canada, Canada Photo Convention, and International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.

You want experienced professionals making your day easier
One of the biggest stresses in wedding planning is finding the right team to bring your dream wedding together. Hiring caterers, venues, DJs, photographers, videographers, officiants, florists, and a host of other wedding professionals can be a daunting task. We have worked with dozens of each of these types of vendors and have the experience to help guide you through the process. We aren’t just there for one day. We work with you throughout the process of planning to ensure that not just your photography is handled, but any questions you may have are answered. 

Regardless of whether you book us or not, we encourage you to view our Resources For Wedding Couples.  There are lots of helpful articles for anybody planning a wedding.

We provide a survey after each wedding to the couple and ask them about each of the vendors they hired and whether they would recommend them. We offer as much of this information to all of our couples whenever they need it.  The less stress you have on your wedding day, the more relaxed you will be, and the better your photos will turn out.

We may not officially be wedding planners, but we want to work with you throughout your entire wedding planning process to make things as easy as possible for you.

You want your day captured as it happens - naturally

We are photojournalists. This means we capture the day as it happens. We love capturing real, authentic, candid, emotional moments. Whether it is laughs during the ceremony or speeches, tears during the vows or first dance, we try to capture everything in a creative, artistic manner.

This follows through into our editing style. We don’t copy and paste pre-made filters on all your photos so that they all look “vintage” or “pastel”. That’s what Instagram is for. The way you looked on your wedding day is the way you will look in your pictures.

We want the images we capture to be timeless.
