What is documentary style photography? Do you pose us at all?
A true documentary photographer or photojournalist does not pose people, but they may ask you to stand in a certain spot for better lighting or to include a specific background. Photojournalists are foremost story tellers - we love to capture raw emotions and document the way your wedding FELT. Majority of my photographs are photojournalistic, except when I'm shooting couple portraits and family portraits.
What equipments do you use?
When I take photographs, I shoot with Canon 5d mark iv & Sony a7rii using either 35mm 1.4L, 50mm 1.2L or 100mm 2.8L lenses and Canon flash.
As for film, we shoot with Sony a7rii, Sony a7sii, Sony 6500 with varying lenses 28mm, 24-70mm, 85mm.
What if you cannot make it to our wedding?
* Knock on wood * IF something does happen to one of us, there are two other videographers or one photographer that can take over. As well, I have trusted photographers or videographers we work with consistently that I would hire as our replacement if a need arise. Therefore, for this reason we don't book more than one wedding a day!
Do we feed you?
If our coverage is longer than six hours, yes please! We also advise to have our dinner served at the same time as you so we don't miss any key moments. However, we are always on the lookout for capturing people laughing and crying!
How long will it take for me to receive my photographs? films?
You can expect to receive your wedding photographs anywhere between 6-8 weeks. And sometimes even faster! It all depends on how busy we are, but I do understand that you want your photos while the excitement is still there! However for wedding films, we deliver the highlights first within 4-8 weeks and the full feature film will follow sometime 6 months after the wedding has taken place.
How will I receive my photos/films?
You will receive an online gallery for photographs where you can download the high resolution quality + USB flash drive.
For films, you will receive the highlight first online and once your full feature film is complete, we will mail you a USB flash drive containing your highlight, full feature film, and other additional footage if it is part of your package.
Why does it take so long to receive the wedding film?
Each wedding and couples are different and I don't believe in creating the same cookie cutter film productions one after another. We take all elements of what makes a good film amazing and carefully craft our film to tell your story.
What is your film editing process?
We believe that the visual, voice, and music must all come together to make a great film. First, we consider who you are and how the day unfolded. Next, we will select anywhere between 4-5 potential music, play it against a rough cut of your film then narrow down to one. After the final selection, we create your film around that music piece. Music tells a story too and we don't just slap on footage one after another. Finally, we review the finished film with all 3 members and tweak it until we are proud of our work. Although we may not be perfect, we constantly strive for the best from each other.

We cannot say enough great things about Boeun and her team!! At first we were a little hesitant about having someone we just met doing our wedding photography, but from the minute I saw Boeun's portfolio I knew we would have our wedding day perfectly captured. Then her fun, bubbly and sweet personality totally sealed the deal for us. Everyone on their team is completely wonderful, easy to work with and extremely professional. We have no regrets with both our wedding photography as well as video. The moments that Boeun captured are truly works of art and are priceless memories that we can cherish forever.

From start to finish, Boeun was very professional and I felt so comfortable with her by my side on my wedding day. The moment I met Boeun, I informed her that my husband and I were not a photogenic couple. But that totally did not stop her from capturing such amazing shots. They all looked like we stepped out of a wedding magazine!! She is truly a passionate photographer and would love have more shoots with her in the future.

We were really nervous when we started to plan our wedding. Shortly after meeting with her, we felt confident that she was the right photographer for us. We were shy about doing engagement photos, but Boeun helped to convince us so that we could get comfortable in front of the camera - and of course, this was included in our price! Our engagement photos turned out amazing. We felt confident and comfortable with Boeun. At our wedding, she was attentive, but out of the way. The entire day went by so quickly that I was so relieved that she reminded us to get some group shots and pulled me away to get some with our wedding party and of just the two of us. Our photos turned out incredibly and we've had so many compliments. One of my favourite photos is of us kissing, thinking no-one is paying attention. So many of our photos perfectly captured the feelings of the day. Boeun was flexible, patient, and calming throughout the entire process. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else!!!

The hubby and I really debated on whether or not we wanted to hire a photographer and we are SO GLAD we invested in this service. We are especially glad that we chose Boeun and her team to document our wedding day, and knew from her portfolio that she would be able to produce beautiful work. Our photos are stunning, and Boeun was able to capture so much emotion and happiness from our big day with her journalistic style. It was also important to us to have someone capture the whimsy and grandeur of our venue, (we got married at the Ganaraska Forest Centre, and our ceremony site was in the forest), and Boeun most definitely executed this.
In addition, Boeun was super professional and made sure to keep contact with myself and my partner throughout our wedding planning process. Prior to us securing her as our photographer, she took the time to meet with us via Skype to get to know us as a couple. We received a sneak peek of a number of photos approximately a week after our wedding, and received all of our photos within 5 weeks, which is incredibly quick!
Do yourself a favour - hire Boeun before she's booked up!!

We were so glad to have found someone like Bo for our wedding video! Bo was super professional, and very determined to make an impact on whoever she sees.
Despite us being from a different culture (we are Pakistani), Bo took the time to understand what was required from our weddings; what parts were important; what parts were not as important. This is something we were having difficulty finding in a videographer. She took the time to know us, as a couple; know about our families; culture; religion; etc. and we really appreciate that!
We had her and her team (her team is also brilliant! Very kind and respectful individuals) for 2 days, in two different halls, 2 different cities. Her team was flexible enough to accommodate me, the groom, as I got ready in city 1; the bride as she got ready in city 2; the venue and hall in city 3; and venue and hall in city 4; plus a small outdoor clip near by in a park too.
Her team captured every small detail in both the events perfectly! The colors, the moments, and emotions. My wife got emotional during the wedding, and when we saw the video, she was crying all over again. We loved reliving our big events over and over again, and upon seeing it the first time around, we had to see it on repeat a few times due to the end result being absolutely breathtaking. More importantly, our families that saw the video had the exact same reaction.
On top of that, Bo and her teams presentation was impeccable and a brilliant touch. They delivered a nice wooden box, with a personalized hand written note, along with a USB that had the video on there. We were not expecting this, and the gesture alone was, and its presentation made a huge impact on us. We LOVED it!
Last, but not least, I am a bit of a control freak. Bo asked if she can have creative freedom over the video, and I was a little apprehensive towards it at first. I am so glad that I let her have full creative freedom over it, as any and every expectation that I, and my wife had were far exceeded! Given the chance, we would LOVE to work with her and her team at every event that comes our way!
We cant recommend her and her team enough!
Bo, Sophia, and Simon, thank you so much for your hard work, and brilliant result! Thank you for capturing every moment of our day. We loved every aspect of it!

Early on in the process Boeun was extremely personable and flexible! She agreed to meet for a coffee before we booked with her & she was very easy to talk to! I found her through a wedding group on Facebook and after seeing her work, I knew that she was exactly what we were looking for.
Boeun went above and beyond for us, even coming to our venue ahead of the big day to scope out the unique lighting situation with us. She was very professional and easy to work with and we were extremely happy with the results. Our memories will last a lifetime through the beautiful photos. Thank you Bo!
