About Âme Collective
Although weddings can often be seen as an industry, with conventions and formulas, the journey that two individuals take to get there is unique and rich with specificity. Âme believes the process to get to that specificity is the foundation in creating insightful and lasting stories.
Âme Collective is a Vancouver-based Wedding Creative Company that creates thoughtful and soulful perspectives of people's weddings through film, photography and design. Their methodology is rooted in their beliefs that the story of a wedding goes beyond the scope of the wedding day, and that these stories deserve to be celebrated. Their hope is that by asking the right questions they will be able to immerse themselves into the stories of each couple, and in turn be able to tell it.
Âme is made up of experienced industry professionals who, after years of working in wedding studios both big and small, decided to form and redefine what a wedding company can be. The Âme family consider themselves as storytellers who happen to work in weddings. They take their cues from not just photography and filmmaking principles, but from storytelling and ethnography.
The team specialises in the expressive storytelling of Photography and Filmmaking, and not merely documents the event. They believe in finding poignant moments and revealing them in sensitive and emotional ways. Collaboration is paramount to Âme's process and clients can expect to be very involved in the storytelling process.
The wedding package may include second Photographer/Videographer, Engagement Shoot, Pre-Wedding Video (the Prequel), and Same-Day-Edits. The images delivered are high resolution and will be available in print as well as digital files.
How they work
Âme believes that in order to tell a story well, you have to understand it. Their methodology begins with a Story Consultation, a process in which they immerse themselves in their couple’s stories that go beyond the scope of the wedding day. From this intimate process they are able to understand the “who” in the story as well as the “why.” The Story Consultation has brought Âme to the homes of many of their clients and introduced them to their families who become important characters to their stories. It opens up the possibilities of what the story of a wedding can and effectively places the clients as Collaborators to their own storytelling.

Âme Collective captures your Wedding Story in the most amazing ways!
My Husband and I couldn’t be happier that we chose to work with Âme Collective for both our Wedding Photos and Film. We opted to go with Âme because we really liked the style of their work: natural, lifestyle with artistic touches -- all captured through a very unique perspective. In my opinion, they aren’t your old-school traditional or extreme dramatic/ obviously-fake look that some of the other photographers in the industry specialize in.
From the initial consultation to our final product deliverables, the team was incredibly great to work with. They were very responsive in all correspondence (email, phone, and texts) and was open to meeting with us throughout the wedding planning process to chat through our questions and day-of events. We booked the Âme team about a year prior to our wedding day and we had a chance to meet with both our lead photographer and videographer (Eric & Kevin) before finally deciding to work with them. This was very comforting and, I feel like, deviates from some of the other brands, where you are delegated a random team of photographers / videographers on the day of your wedding.
My Husband and I also had a pre-wedding event 2 days before our wedding day and we were fortunate enough to be able to have both Eric and Kevin help capture this day. Additionally, in producing our wedding film, each myself and my husband had a chance to meet one-on-one with Kevin, so that the team was able to capture individual moments of our love story in the ultimate wedding film. These pre-wedding sessions with the team really helped, as it made the Wedding day “paparazzi feeling” much less intimidating, as we were both already fairly comfortable with the team, and felt like they knew our personalities.
We loved how the team captured the story of our wedding day in the film. Additionally, we loved how the photos revealed the expressions of our guests - laughter, tears of joy, and pure love & support for us. It’s difficult to tell a story through just photos, but in some means, the Ame Team was able to do this for me and my Husband. We are so pleased with our wedding photos and film and have received non-stop compliments about them from our family and friends whom we have shared the photos with.
Thank you Phoebe, Kevin, Eric, Richard and Barbara for capturing our special day and allowing us to reflect back on our Wedding through the story captured in your work. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends!

Not your typical wedding photographers/ videographers
You might imagine that wedding photography/videography is simply about capturing magical moments on your special day.
While that accounts for the large majority of what we might expect as customers, Kevin, Eric and Phoebe have blown us away by not only simply capturing those moments, but our love story too.
They started by first figuring out who we are as individuals, then created the space for us to share how our worlds intertwined. Finally, they wove all the threads together into a multi-layered narrative that we feel reflects who we are as a couple – history and all.
As you might have guessed by now, Ame did both our engagement and wedding photos - and our wedding video too.
While we understand that many couples might be anxious to get their photos quickly, rather than getting things done quickly, we loved that Ame took their time to get everything done right. It was perfect.
Although we started as simply clients, we completed our contract as friends; we would highly recommend them for your wedding day – or any other special occasion for that matter.Sent on 13/11/2019

Photography and videography are definitely one of the most important components for part of the wedding planning process. We are very happy with the decision we made to go with Ame Collective. They really took the time to ensure all moments were captured and we have these memories to look back on for the rest of our lives.

The Âme Collective team is the most talented group of photographers and videographers you’ll meet. Their ability to capture and tell the story of your special day is amazing. The evidence is in their work. My husband, family and friends were all so impressed with our wedding video— we still can’t watch it without crying. Everyone on the team was an absolute pleasure to work with as they are genuine, caring and personable. By mid-day I felt like they were all my good friends. They are each so easygoing and comfortable to spend time with. My dad spent a good hour chatting with one of the videographers on my wedding and still talks about him to this day! Thank you Phoebe, Kevin, Aaron, Eric and the entire team. You are amazing at what you do, and we are so glad we had you with us for our best day ever!Sent on 11/10/2019

HIGHLY recommend Âme Collective for wedding Photography & Videography
The team at Âme Collective have been amazing from the very beginning! From the initial inquiry, to our engagement shoot, to our wedding day photos and videos, to delivery have been top notch! My husband and I are in love with our engagement photos because the team went above and beyond, creating these magical memories for the two of us . The SDE was absolutely beautiful and we could not have asked for anything more - all of our friends and family were so amazingly touched because the team took their time to go over what is important to each couple and making it 110 percent sentimental . Thanks to Phoebe , Kevin , Amanda , Eric , Richard , and Brendan for making this experience so fun and worth it. I highly recommend Âme Collective to anyone looking for a photographer and videographer - you won't regret it I promise !Sent on 13/01/2020
