Hi there, thank you for your visit today, and congratulations on your recent engagement. Feel free to look around. If you like what you see, let's chat about your wedding plans.
Together with my associate photographers, weddings and private family events are documented faithfully by blending relaxed, unobtrusive documentary style coverage and elegant & timeless portraiture. We're a small boutique style business, working closely with each of our couples to ensure they get exactly what their looking for. We're not new, but the name is. Miabella Photo Company is Inspired by my two beautiful daughters who came up with the name.
Over the past ten years I've independently photographed over three hundred weddings around the world. When it comes to wedding photography, I believe that everything from the initial booking process, to the delivery of wedding photographs should be simple, streamlined and stress free. We're friendly, supportive and know how to document a wedding without being overly involved in your day. We believe in people, relationships, in stories and the importance of the moments that can never be repeated.
Love what you see here? Get in touch and tell us all about your wedding photography needs.
Thanks for your visit!

The thing about the photographs that Andreas captures is this...they are so alive, so full of emotion, of depth, of unabashed gorgeousness. They are perfect enough to hang on your walls, but soulful enough to bring you to tears each time you look at them.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE AND WHAT YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY ON OUR WEDDING DAY WILL BE LIKE.
Over the past decade of photographing weddings we've established a certain approach that works with all weddings that we document. We're friendly, supportive, and flexible. There are no re-do's on the wedding day, so we focus on capturing narrative images in real-time. We work closely with our clients to ensure we capture everything that's most important to you. We direct our portraits and family group photos, but the rest of the day is yours to enjoy with your friends and family.
ONCE WE DECIDE TO BOOK WITH YOU WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Once you've decided on booking us as your photographers, simply contact us to check your date. The rest of the process is simple and stress free. Can't wait to hear from you!
WE'D PREFER YOU NOT POST OUR PHOTOS ONLINE, IS THAT OKAY?
The nature of the business is such that we must be show recent images in order to promote, and most couples are fine with us showing images similar to what is shown on this site from their weddings as well. There are exceptions to that rule of course, whether it be professional, or cultural or simply a personal choice to not have anything out for the world to see online. I personally do not have a problem to a complete black out request. We're flexible, so just ask please.
DO YOU WORK WITH CINEMATOGRAPHY TEAMS?
We typically suggest to our couples that they consider the room or rooms that they will be getting ready in when planning to hire multiple teams of media professionals. Most cinema teams are 3-5 people, so things can get pretty congested fast. Most of the time we find that working with larger video teams takes away from the authenticity of your wedding day as it becomes more about making "the shot" than being in present in the moment. There are a couple of independent videographers and super 8mm movie makers that we'd be happy to recommend to you that do great work.
DO YOU GIVE US ALL OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS?
When you commission miabella photo company to document your wedding day you're hiring two highly skilled creative professionals with over a decade of experience in weddings, and over a decade of advertising, photojournalism and film experience. Our goal is to capture, and provide you with a set of only the very best images, that tell the story, that show you in the best way possible, and that are going to be memorable and pleasant to look at as you share them with friends and family. As such, we do not provide any "raw" or out of the camera files that have not undergone editing. Your set of photos won't include blinking eyes, or strange expressions. These are all deleted so that no one can see them. You'll receive a link to download your archive of high resolution, completed images that you can store, share and print as you wish.
DO WE FEED YOU?
Yes please, especially if we're photographing an 8-12 hour day and working through dinner. Check with your venue on the rules as some have certain guidelines as to where vendors sit, and sometimes that's down the hall and around the corner! Most of our clients typically set up a table within the main room for us as guests, so we don't miss anything.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO WEDDINGS?
We dress as a one of your important guests would. A wedding is a formal event and we dress in the appropriate formal outfits to blend in. You'll never see us in jeans or khakis at a wedding.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS
Typically in Spring and Fall the turn around is within 10-20 days and summer months is 15-30 on the high side when things get really busy. We try to get you the body of work as fast as possible so you can share them.
IS A MUST HAVE SHOOT LIST SOMETHING I SHOULD MAKE FOR YOU?
Save your time, and spend it on other important parts of your wedding. A shoot list of images such as "cutting the cake, me and mom walking hand in hand, me and the girls" is not useful actually as sometimes, things just don't happen the way you want them to happen. Please do provide a portrait list however, for when we spend those 20-30 minutes doing your family and bride and groom portraits.
OUR WEDDING IS GOING TO BE OUT OF TOWN, HOW DO YOU CHARGE FOR THAT?
A travel charge will be added that is separate from the Creative Fee for our services. When you contact us with your location details a quote will be provided to you with the fee for photography, print or album add ons and travel charges. Weddings that require travel outside of Canada are charged at a slightly higher rate and air + three nights accommodations is required.
WE NEED SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HAIR, MAKE-UP, FLORISTS AND A WEDDING PLANNER, CAN YOU HELP?
We have this list that we like to call the "only hire these people for your event because they are incredible" list, and should you ask that will be provided to you as well. We've worked with a lot of vendors in every category and budget range so please do ask.
DO YOU ALSO PHOTOGRAPH PORTRAITS OR FAMILY DAY OF SHOOTS?
Yes, absolutely and we love that! Call us or email today with your inquiry to discuss the details of that day.
Have any other questions? Feel free to contact us today.
