We chose 6:8 Photography because Kevan is a Fernie local and advised us that he knew our venue, Island Lake Lodge, very well and also beautiful places to take photos in the area. It was important for us to have someone who has local knowledge of the Fernie area. I had also looked at Kevan’s work through Instagram and found his work to be stunning and really what we were looking for in our wedding photos. We wanted to capture the mountain landscape and have that incorporated in all of our photos; Kevan’s work does just that! We also liked that 6:8 Photography offered a variety of wedding photography packages and these packages could be customized to fit the needs of different couples. Lastly, we knew right from our first meeting with Kevan that he is genuine and would be a pleasure to work with! He was always positive and professional throughout the time we worked with him and had wonderful energy on our wedding day.
It is not very often you get to have professional photos taken of yourself and it can be little bit nerve wracking at first, especially on your wedding day! Kevan’s calm demeanor and positivity made it very smooth and fun working with him. He provided simple directions while we were being photographed and our pictures turned out amazing. It was also important to us to have some photos taken in the wilderness around our venue, which required us to do some mild hiking to capture these shots. In my wedding dress and all, Kevan made this part of our day fun and exciting! We could tell Kevan had done this many times and knew what he was doing. Also, Kevan was open to trying different things to capture the images we really wanted. For example, we wanted to have sunset photos taken and this required us sneaking out of our reception dinner for 30 minutes at the perfect time. Kevan planned this well and we ended up getting some of the most beautiful shots of the day during this time.
