The Best Story Telling Photography

Wow where do we even begin. Bobbi was incredible!! She was able to capture our day in a way we didn’t even know was possible. The photos we have received are absolutely breathtaking! You can feel the emotions in each photo as a story is unfolding. Bobbi’s photography isn’t standard, you are buying an experience that lasts a lifetime. Her photography is a documentary that tells a story from start to finish with everything in between. As we watch the slide show over and over again, we time travel back to being on top of Mt. Crawford, exchanging our vows in the most love filled intimate ceremony. Our day wasn’t posing in front of a camera being models, we created memories from picking huckleberries for the first time, to almost falling off of a mountain (she has quick reflexes btw) to picking up rocks to keep forever, to countless moments of laughter. Bobbi created a safe welcoming space that allowed us to be comfortable and our real authentic goofy selves. From the moment we met Bobbi there was an instant connection of friendship. Bobbi is the most genuine, kindest soul we have ever met. We can’t thank you enough for perfectly capturing our love for each other.

Nelson, BC Elopement

Bobbi’s style of photography perfectly aligned with what we were looking for with our elopement. After finding Bobbi, and meeting her online we knew we had found our gal! She was so easy to talk to right off the bat, like we had known her forever. We are so happy with our photos- they truly are works of art. The day was relaxed, not stressful and full of laughs. Thank you Bobbi.

Just go for it!

Bobbi was so amazing to work with! She has such a lovely way about her. She is fun, talented, and so easy going. It made our day feel really relaxing. With her documentary style of photography, we got so many beautiful moments captured. I had complete trust that Bobbi would see and document the important stuff, but also some of the smaller moments. I am truly so thrilled with her work, and I could not be happier I chose her for our wedding day. If you are thinking about it, I HIGHLY recommend Bobbi for your wedding.

Hire her! You will not be disappointed!

We honestly cannot say enough good things. There aren't enough words, truly.

Our hunt for a wedding photographer was REAL. We looked at 40+ photographers in the province of BC. While others had certain things we were looking for, no one seemed to have the whole package. We weren’t big on the ‘status quo’ wedding photos. While we absolutely wanted photos of the entirety of our day, we didn’t need the stock standard rings, dress hanging, people standing around smiling, etc. We wanted the 'dream,' photographer. One who could capture the raw emotion and vibe of the day, one who would capture those swoon worthy images, one who would capture all the ‘status quo’ things but in a way where they were part of it.

When we arrived at Bobbi's site, the emotion we could feel in her photos was palpable. We knew we had to meet her.

When we did get the chance to meet, her authenticity, honesty and personality sealed the deal for us. She answered all our questions, even gave advice on certain things based on her own experiences with weddings. Her having been to hundreds and us new to planning one.

We decided to go with a package that included a connection session. Would highly recommend. We headed out to Waterton and got to know her even better. Turns out we were right - she’s just a wicked person. Not only that, but we also got to see her style of photography with us in the photos. We were blown away by our pictures. They were stunning.

Fast forward to wedding day. Bobbi fits in with anyone, she blends in with everyone, she’s the guest you want at your wedding. Our photos turned out so incredibly amazing, so beautiful. We couldn’t be any happier with them. We laughed and we cried when we viewed them. They were absolutely everything we wanted. Truthfully, we don’t even know how to pick our favorite ones. Each time I look at them I am immediately transported back to the day. Which is such a phenomenal feeling. We have it all. The getting ready, the ceremony, the wedding party, the portraits, the speeches, the love, the laughter, the uniqueness of our guests, they’re personalities somehow captured in a single image, the moments we didn’t even know happened, the things we didn’t even see.

She is truly fascinated by people in the best way, finding beauty in everything. Her ability to capture magic is unparalleled. We honestly cannot recommend Bobbi enough. Hire her. We promise you will not be disappointed.

Amazing. Bobbi was so helpful.

We seen her photos and knew she was perfect for us. I had a lot of things go one before the wedding including my grandmother getting sick, so I did have to cancel and reschedule things with her and she was so understand. She made the whole process easier, and we could not be happier with our photos.

Bobbi Nails It!

Bobbi absolutely NAILED it!!! She gave us those most beautiful memories that we will have forever. We cannot thank her enough!! Not only were the photos absolutely STUNNING, they told the best story and captured all of the perfect moments from the day, with everyone’s personalities shining through! She is an adventurous person with an “up for anything” attitude and helped show our adventurous and playful sides! We are so obsessed and feel like we can re-live this day! She made so many positive suggestions throughout the day which we were grateful for - you can tell she has been doing this for awhile! She also brought along a second photographer as we had a lot of moving parts, and travelled from Fernie to Nelson all out of the goodness of her heart. Not only is she phenominal at what she does but she is a fantastic human being and such a positive, enthusiastic, and fun wedding guest!! She also paid attention to everything that we love and wanted, and incorporated it even if we didn’t ask and even if it wasn’t what she would normally focus on. Seriously though… we still cannot stop looking at all of the photos 2 months after receiving them and are so grateful that we chose and met Bobbi!!!! If you are on the fence, this is your sign, you won’t regret it!!!

Bobbi did such a stunning job with our photos! I can't even describe how beautiful they are. They capture the pure joy in all our faces and really make you feel the emotion of the day. Everyone at our wedding loved Bobbi! She was so much fun and made it so easy and comfortable to be photographed. Thank you so much Bobbi!!

Bobbi Barbarich "Photographer of the Year" (every year, in our opinion)

We met Bobbi waaaaaay back in 2020...and since then, we feel incredibly lucky every time we see an engagement photo, wedding photo, or hear or see anything wedding related, because it reminds us that we had the most amazing experience with her; one that is truly life changing. Even when it isn't about our own wedding experience or the photos aren't of us, if we think 'wedding' or 'photographer' we take a minute and say to ourselves "Man we chose the right person, Bobbi absolutely killed it!" We feel so lucky because we are now able to reminisce of the most special day in our life, by way of the memories that she encapsulated, so perfectly, for us. She is truly is the keeper of our MEMORY GOLD (and yes this is a term I just created to describe Bobbi!).
Part of our initial choosing of a wedding photographer was influenced by another photographer not being available, as he was part of our wedding party. However, once recommended, it was very clear that Bobbi was serious about what she does- her passion, talent, and very cool Kootenay-style was evident from the first photograph we saw on her website. We knew we had to have her. We even changed the date of our wedding to ensure our memories were in the best hands possible.
After our engagement session with her, we became even more excited, knowing she would be capturing our special day just the way we had hoped. Then, the gallery photos of our wedding exceeded any expectation we had. They were stupid good. We cried a lot of happy tears when looking at them, because seeing at them is like re-living the day. This is the definition of nailing it. We look at other peoples wedding photos and I appreciate her style, quality, and overall talent as a photographer, even more so.
Just in general, Bobbi is cool as all heck', and if you are lucky enough to have her snap pics for your business, engagement, wedding, or special occasion of any kind, you can give yourself a huge high five (every day for the rest of your life) because you made the right choice, and you will never regret it. You will never regret Bobbi.

A magical experience

It's hard to really express what Bobbi does on your special day unless you experience it firsthand. She's less of a wedding photographer, more of a documentarian. She captures moments that are somehow both timeless and universal - a true talent.

Also, she's a great wedding guest: kind, respectful, fun - almost old fashioned with her manners. As a photographer, she recedes into the background and you almost forget that she's snapping away. If you hire Bobbi as your wedding photographer you will get irreverent, candid shots and incredible quality. You'll feel lucky and you won't be sorry!

Just Book Her.

We cannot say enough good things about Bobbi. We had known for a year or so that we wanted her as our photographer before we even got engaged. When we finally started planning our wedding, she was the first call we made, and we picked our wedding date based upon her availability. We even got married down in the Kootenays (we live in Kamloops), just so that we could hire her. She did not disappoint! From incredible engagement photos where it felt as though we had known her our whole lives, to her being at our wedding for TWELVE hours and just seeming as though she was one of our closest friends - we could not have asked for a better photographer. If you want a photographer who seamlessly fits into your wedding, makes your bridal party die with laughter, and makes all of your guests feel comfortable enough to dance their hearts out with a camera constantly on them - choose her. We know that she will be the one that we hire for every other important milestone in our lives. Thank you for everything Bobbi!

Bobbi Barbarich
Owner & Photographer

Bobbi Barbarich is a story teller, so she takes a photojournalistic approach to your wedding. Her interest lies in documenting your relationship, and your connections with the guests you have invited to celebrate your day.

What this means is that your images are less about what you look like on your wedding day, and more about how you felt on that day.

Hence, the candid feel of her images: she is drawn to human emotion, and there is a lot of it at a wedding! Bobbi is described most frequently as being a hard worker, as someone who "gets in there" and is not afraid to make an image she knows you'll connect with. She's also super great at making people feel comfortable, because we all know how awkward it can be to have your photo taken!

Bobbi Barbarich calls Nelson BC home, and is available for local and destination weddings.
