Meet Deanna


I’m so glad you’re here! I hope you take a look around, love what you see and contact me. I’d love to hear from you!

What I Do

I am a wedding and portrait photographer located in beautiful Victoria, B.C. I am available in the Greater Victoria area, Vancouver Island and beyond. I photograph relationships in a relaxed, natural and timeless way. I want to photograph your relationships – who you are, how you feel about each other as a family or couple, the tiny details that truly capture who you are. I help guide you as needed so you know what to do in front of the camera and I capture candid moments where you don’t even know I’m there. I want you to have as much fun creating these images as I do.

Who I Am

I married my best friend. We were engaged on our first date (I’ll tell you the story some time) and are still crazy about each other. We have three amazing children; they are the reason I sold my bike to buy my first camera. I love getting lost in a good book. I swim. A lot. Yoga grounds me. So does a long hike in the woods. Dogs make me smile. I feel the same way about chocolate as Jack Sparrow does about rum. I scuba dive. I’m camera-shy. And I’m completely addicted to photography. I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography and have studied photography for over 15 years and worked professionally for 6.

Let’s chat and see how we can work together. Send me an email using the contact form below or call me at #250.472.0616.
