01. HIRE A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER THAT ALIGNS WITH YOUR VALUES

Starting to get ready early will give you more time for pre-wedding photos and will help you to feel relaxed and calm throughout the day. A ‘first look’ will provide more time to embrace the moments you share with guests during cocktail hour after your ceremony. Additionally, a ‘first look’ is a great way to create a quiet moment, full of genuine emotions of your love and excitement for one another.
With a ‘first look’ your wedding timeline will follow this order: getting ready – first look – couple photos – wedding party photos – ceremony – family photos – cocktail hour with friends and family.

SAMM & MICHAEL SAY…
Cass at Cass Marie Photography is incredible. My husband and I are big into the outdoors, hiking and nature. We also love and value candid photos over super posey and traditional wedding photos. Cass worked with our vision and brought it to life. Our engagement session was fantastic and she truly captured all of the fun moments and made the whole experience relaxing (even though we were being eaten to death by mosquitoes). On our wedding day she kept everyone at ease, and captured all of our events in their true authenticity. The colours, the candids, the fact that the photos were so “us” was just everything we could have hoped for. Cass is a dream to work with. We can’t wait to have her continue documenting our lives in the future.
KIM & JORDAN SAY…
We are so happy with our decision to have Cass Marie Photography capture our wedding day! Could not be more pleased with our experience and how the photos turned out. I still love looking at them. Cass was great from the very start. She replied quickly and was eager to get to know us. Leading up to our engagement shoot, I was concerned about the weather (it ended up being fine), but Cass showed up with these beautiful clear umbrellas with twinkling lights in them just in case. It showed how much she cared about my concerns. On our wedding day, she arrived on time and got right to work! Some of my favourite photos from our album are the candid ones of me getting ready that I didn’t even know she was taking. Overall, we are very pleased with the entire album, and I would recommend Cass Marie Photography to anyone looking to book!! Thanks for everything, Cass!
BRITTANEY & KHRIS SAY…
We won the lottery choosing Cass Marie Photography as our wedding photographer! Cass is super friendly and did an excellent job at creating such a welcoming and comfortable environment for my husband and I who are quite camera shy! She ensured that she was getting all the best shots and angles and made us feel super comfortable with posing by directing us in a way where we didn’t feel nervous or awkward!
Cass was super responsive with emails and always willing to talk things through to really understand our vision and to help us create a list of all the shots we wanted to get with the guests we wanted to get them with!
