Victoria Wedding Photographer: Vruti & Dave at Victory Barber Shop

I was waiting for clients in a Victoria Starbucks when in walks in my cousin Fatima - I had a few minutes to spare before my meeting so we chatted and her friend Vruti was with her. After introductions were made, and I said I was a wedding photographer - Vruti said she was engaged and getting married in Ontario. Now, when I hear that a bride is engaged and hasn't starting booking all her vendors yet - I feel like I owe it to her to tell her everything about choosing vendors. I didn't think that we would end up going to Ontario with Vruti & Dave.

There are a hoard of articles on choosing the 'right' photographer that skim over one of the most important details of choosing the photographer - personality. I cannot stress this enough, it comes right beside loving their photographic style. You are choosing a bestie for the day of. We're there from the morning to your first dance, and around you, your family and friends. This is such an important day, and I feel that couples should meet first of all with their photographer, ask any question under the sun and make sure they feel comfortable. On our end, we take a limited number of weddings each year and make sure our couples are the right fit for us. We are thinking of them in the long run - we want to make sure your experience on your wedding day is the best it could possibly be. Choosing a photographer is much like choosing a new friend to be introduced into your circle of friends and family.  Not everyone is going to be the right fit - and that is perfectly okay. You will know it by the feeling you get in your stomach, much like buying a house or car.

After our first skype meeting with both Vruti & Dave - I knew that we were a perfect fit, and the next time I would see them would be at their 'Ugly Sweater' Christmas Get together. Vruti is a contagious ball of laughter and giggles. Dave is the charming man's, man - old world gentlemen, who teases Vruti gently when she is being silly. The two have travelled the globe together, gone on many an adventure and this summer will be tying the knot in Vaughn, Ontario. I cannot wait for their wedding - I'm so excited to be apart of their day! Congratulations Dave & Vruti!!!
