Things to know

Good to know Questions & Answers
I LOVE YOUR IMAGES, HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

First I suggest we meet or at least chat on the phone/skype.
To secure a date in my calendar I need a 40% retainer, and a signed contract.
The balance then becomes due 2 weeks before your wedding.
Cheques/Credit Card, and Interact Direct Debit are all good.

HOW LONG BEFORE WE SEE OUR
WEDDING IMAGES?

Normally I will have a wonderful complete set of images ready for you 2-3 weeks after your wedding, which are posted to my clients page, and a USB drive in the mail to you.

I am completely overwhelmed with how stunning our Wedding photos are. Thank you Chris for capturing the naturally special moments – not only of Joel and I, but of our guests as well. You have a gift for storytelling with pictures.

ARE WE A GOOD FIT?

Yes…if you want your wedding day to be about enjoying spending valuable time with those
closest to you, and not sweating the small stuff. The images I create are dedicated to recording
those important relationships in your life. My past clients have described me variously
as professional, courteous, funny, easy going, adaptable, patient, to mention a few adjectives.
We’ll hopefully have lots of fun as well!

DO YOU WORK ALONE OR WITH AN ASSISTANT?

I work alone. I find this less intrusive during the wedding day. Also my couples
hire me for my vision, and not someone else’s

WHAT DO WE GET ON THE USB Drive?

All my couples receive finished unmarked edited images as you see here on my website.
They are the full size images produced by my professional DSLR cameras.
You can share or print these for yourselves and/or family/friends.
My couples typically receive somewhere between 400-500 images for an 8 hour commission.

The best are all the pictures I didn’t know he took, the ones of all our friends and family during the reception. Looking at them made us relive our wedding all over again. They invoked all the emotions we experienced. That’s something his photos will allow us to do for years to come.

YOU MENTIONED TRAVEL COSTS?

For my summer Saturday coverages, travel on Vancouver Island is included.
For my per hour rate, travel fees apply outside of Nanaimo based on where your wedding will be.
For instance, popular destinations; Victoria is $70, and Tofino = $100
Any destinations requiring ferries, overnight hotels, or flights will need to be
quoted on an as needed basis.

A BIT ABOUT CHRIS…
Chris Boar
I actually started professional life as a geeky nerd, with an Honours Degree in Electronic/Computer Engineering. I worked in the UK Telecoms industry for over a decade. I was and always have been a photographer and took the opportunity to turn it into something meaningful (and escape the 9-5 cubicle life) when I emmigrated to this wonderful country called Canada in 2005. I was proud to become a Canadian Citizen in 2013. In the last decade I’ve photographed over 550 weddings. I’m happy simply in the fact that I know the images I create will still be evoking emotions/warm feelings long after I’ve gone. I always tell my couples these images aren’t just for them, they are for their grandchildren, and their children as well.
