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!
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.
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.
We enjoyed working with you so much and absolutely love the photos. We are thrilled to have those memories captured so well. Thank you for the time you took to make sure everything was perfect.

Deanna was fun, unobtrusive, professional and she took amazing photos of us! She managed to capture the whole day; even things that I didn't notice and would have missed, turned up in her beautiful photos!
My husband and I can't say enough good things about the level of service Deanna provided, or the way she captured all the important moments during our wedding.
- Donna & Tristen
I cannot stress enough how happy we were with Deanna as our wedding photographer! She found this magical balance between guiding us through our requested poses without making anything feel too unnatural!
We really felt like we could be ourselves and she found a way to capture each moment perfectly! I am so happy with how the pictures turned out, and will recommend Deanna to everyone I can!

Deanna went above and beyond meeting our expectations. Despite our camera shyness, she made us feel at ease and was very accommodating. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have been blessed with her talents and her genuine love of life.

Sarah is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I met her through Victoria Women of Weddings and enjoy her positive, uplifting personality. When she asked me to photograph her maternity photos, I was thrilled. Her husband, Rob, is just as sweet as she is and they were a joy to work with. Sharon Rai Hair and Makeup Artistry brought out the best in the already lovely mama to be. We met at Hatley Castle on the Royal Roads University Campus one Saturday for our portrait session...

Portrait sessions are customized to fit your needs. We will chat prior to your session to plan locations and clothing, and to ensure I know exactly what you are looking for. We will discuss how to get the look and feel you are after. On the date of your session we will meet at your chosen location and work together for 60-90 minutes. Portrait ideas include families, children, engagements, graduations, and headshots.
Each couple is unique and has different needs for their photography. The information covered here is simply a starting point for discussion. I welcome the opportunity to sit down with you to customize a package specific to your wedding. I offer different collections based on how much of the day you want photographed, if you’d like to include a second photographer, prints or albums.
If you'd like an option not listed here or you wish to create your own photography package, please let me know. I am happy to provide a custom quote.
