Pictures immortalize a moment you never want to forget and you want to re-live for a life time over and over again. So the task of finding a photographer to do this for our wedding was very daunting. It actually started with a patient of mine, who along with his wife were voted “One of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the World” American Photo Magazine, and “Best Overall Wedding Photography” Professional BC Wedding Awards 2012. While he and his wife were not available, and well out of our price range, he gave us invaluable insight into picking a photographer. He said that he and his wife actually interview their potential clients and if their personalities don’t mesh well they will refuse the wedding. He said that just taking good pictures is not enough when it comes to being a wedding photographer. You have to be able to bond with the couple so that you can be in the moment and not disturb it. With this bond, as a photographer, you capture not just the picture, but the emotion, excitement, and passion that the day creates.
Armed with this insight we went to a wedding show and meet at least a dozen or more photographers. We saw hundreds of great pictures and albums, but we weren’t looking for that, we were looking for a personality. When we came to Kerensa’s booth she actually wasn’t even there at first. We looked through her album and saw beautiful pictures, much the same as we had seen at other booths. Then Kerensa came over and introduced herself (she had been tending to her little one). We chatted with her for a few minutes and that’s all it took for us……we had our “Aha!” moment, we had found our personality! We went to a couple of other booths, but soon realized without even communicating, we had both already made up our minds!
The day of the wedding, well it was an amazingly perfect day! It was one of those days you want freeze in time and re-live over and over again, and that’s exactly what Kerensa did for us! I honestly can’t remember seeing her that much, but as we saw in the pictures she was always there, blending into the moment. One of the most incredible things she did for us was “the 10 minute rule”. She took us aside after the ceremony away from everything and we got 10 minutes to have a moment together and enjoy what had just happened! We felt so comfortable and relaxed around her, there was no stress or tension at all. We never felt pressured to pose or create a moment, we just lived in the moment the day had become and when we got our pictures, that’s exactly what we saw!
Thank-you, not just for the beautiful pictures, but for capturing everything that day was to us!
Kerensa is beyond Fantastic
I had the pleasure of working with Kerensa on three different shoots. I did a Boudoir shoot secretly as a gift for my husband. Kerensa made me feel very comfortable and was great at leading me through how to pose. Second was an engagement session with my fiancé at the time and our dog. She came out to our family cabin and captured stunning photos. She was so helpful to get the images to us quickly as we were using them in the wedding.
On our wedding day Kerensa was amazing. She was like a wedding photographer Ninja. Half the time I didn’t even realise she was there snapping away shot after shot. When I got the pictures back I was amazed at how many special moments she truly capture in a photo for us. I can relive the most amazing day when ever I want just by flipping through all of our pictures. I have a difficult time choosing which photos to print because they are all so great. So many to choose from.
I would recommend Kerensa to any one who is looking for a photographer with a heart that reflects through the pictures she takes.
We will be using Kerensa again when we have another special time we want captured.
A sincerely happy client
“Picking a wedding photographer to capture one of the biggest moments in your life is a huge decision. We wanted someone who was personable, charismatic, fun and laid back and Kerensa fit all those things and more. We we’re so excited to have a destination wedding in Mexico surrounded by the people who love and support us and Kerensa seemed just as excited as we were. She was able to capture the pure joy and love in our wedding photos and each time we look at them its like we’re right back at that day. It was one of the best wedding decisions we made to fly her down to Mexico so she could help capture the moments we will truly never forget. From our engagement photos to our one year anniversary photo shoot we knew we made the right decision!”

Thank you Kerensa for the wonderful work you’ve done in capturing the most incredible moments of our life. We really enjoyed working with you. We were so happy with your ideas, work ethic, professionalism and patience. We love to look back at the beautiful photos you took and remember the early days of our engagement, our wedding day and the first days of our daughter’s life.
