    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!!!

    Stacey and Jaren, thank you! I am indeed up for anything and your wedding brought so much goodness! I loved being part of the team and documenting your story, there was so much to dive into. Thank you for trusting me and for loving your images. There's so much good stuff in store for you two!

    Stunning photos!!

    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's reply:

    Thank you, Courtney! I absolutely loved spending the day with your family, it was so special to capture your relationships and the depth of what you mean to one another... as well as the joy you share! AND THE DOGS!!! xoxo

    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.

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    ALL OF THE TEARS!!! Memory gold. No regrets! Ack, I couldn't have dreamed of a better day with you and your loves. Thank you for sharing your day with me, your lives and your memories. I'm so grateful for the opportunity, and to deliver on what you will enjoy for the rest of your lives. MUCH LOVE AND HUGE HIGH FIVES!!!! xoxoxo

    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's reply:

    Ericaaaaaa! Your words mean so much to me! Thank you, immensely, for your trust!! It's my dream/goal/mission to provide this experience for my clients, and I thank my lucky stars and your vision for finding me. I'm so looking forward to being there for you in years to come. xoxo

    The best! You will not be disappointed

    Bobbi is amazing. We are a super awkward couple that never ever takes pictures together and she made everything so easy!! She even included and captured great photos of our dog, Pal, who is also a huge fan of Bobbi! We love our engagement photos and can't wait for the wedding. Can't wait to show our families and friends! Thanks Bobbi!!

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Niki! I'm so happy you felt comfortable with me, and trusted that I could help make the photography process easy for you. The fact that you trusted me is what made your photos, and I'm super grateful I got to be there for you. And of course, your wonderful ball of floof.

    Incredible

    Bobbi is amazing at capturing not only the traditional moments of your wedding but also the feel and the emotions of the whole day. Everytime I look at my pictures I'm brought back to each moment and I find myself falling in love with a different photo each time! Book her! I gave her a list of photos I wanted (mostly family groups) and then the rest of the time we just wanted her to capture the candid moments and she delivered beyond our expectations! Definitely do an engagement session - it helped us get comfortable with the idea of photos and it gave you an opportunity to get to know her and her style before the stress of the "big day".

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Thank you so much, Brittany! Yes, the engagement session is so helpful to get oriented and feel more comfortable with the camera. This makes wedding day photos easier, but also more candid. It also warms my heart to hear you fall in love with a different photo each time. That's the true value in wedding photography. You'll go through them at different times in your life, and value them in different ways as the people you love grow and change. Much love to you and Mike!

    Captures moments, not poses

    Bobbi has a professional approach, but is able to do whatever it takes to capture beautiful candid moments. If you are looking for something different for your engagement, wedding or family photos, she is perfect.

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Thank you, Lisa! I sincerely appreciate the trust both you and Shane had in my perspective. It gave me the ability to give you images totally unique to your relationship with each other and your loved ones. All of whom are incredibly fun people, just like you!! :-)

    Unbelievable

    Bobby captured the most emotional moments on my wedding day from morning to night. She never even submitted the candid classic wedding photos until the very end. What we received first was an album that showed so many special moment and so much true emotion and every single one was candid. When we got our full set of photos it was unbelievable to see all the different styles of photography and I still cry when I look at them.

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Ali, thank you for sharing how you felt in getting your photos. Reflecting your true emotions in the moment is what I try so hard to do, and I'm elated that's what spoke to you... and makes you cry. Happy tears!!

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.
