    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

    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

    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!

    Working with Bobbi was like working with family. Leading up to our wedding everything felt very easy and relaxed. Bobbi was open to our vision and provided insightful feedback and tons of support. On our special day the weather took a turn, which changed our entire plan/schedule. Bobbi was a pro and when we received our photos we were BLOWN away at how she transformed our rainy wedding day into a work of ART. We cannot wait to display our photos around our home as she truly captured who we are and why we decided to get married. Thank you!!

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    I'm so glad you feel this way. It's incredibly important to me that my couples, our relationship, feel easy and relaxed so you can focus on each other and your loved ones. Even with the change in weather you were both open to my suggestions and were total troopers in the rain. I can't thank you enough for working with me through that. I hope your images forever bring you so much warmth!

    Nothing but wonderful things to say!

    Outstanding photographer! Bobbi did family photos for us and our wedding photos and I will most definitely be keeping her contact info to have more family photos done in the future! Every photo she takes is so incredibly beautiful and captures so much emotion and special moments that bring back the memory of what was happening in those moments. They are more than just photos. She also was just so much fun to be with on our wedding day! Would highly recommend to anyone even considering hiring her! We can’t wait to get more photos with her!

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Megan and Brian, I am so very happy that you can feel your memories in your photos. That's honestly the exact experience I want my clients to have. I believe so deeply in the power of photography to help us remember what is important and meaningful to us. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your family history with me. I'm so excited I'll get to continue capturing it for you!

    Great Photographer, Lovely Person

    Working with Bobbi was great.
    We had an outdoor, nighttime, winter wedding on a ski hill. This meant that Bobbi had to ride the Salmo Ski Hill t-bar on a snowboard- with all of her photo gear- several times to get photos of us and our guests night skiing (on top of all the standard wedding photographer responsibilities). She was such a boss, and even took time before the big day to sharpen up the old T-bar skills.

    Bobbi met with us 3 times before the actual event: once for the initial meeting; once to take engagement photos; and a third time at the venue to get a feel for how this bizarre ski wedding was going to unfold. By the time the event came, Bobbi felt like a friend and someone that I would invite to my wedding even without the photographer contract.
    With that being said: she kept it professional, and did an amazing job. We wanted beautiful, casual, and fun candid photos of all of our guests, as well as a few romantic gems of my husband and I. Bobbi delivered. We are super happy with our photos.

    Bobbi Barbarich's reply:

    Romie and Ben! This makes me so happy. As did your wedding. As much as your wedding was designed to be light and fun, my perspective is that things can only really be fun if I'm having fun with you. Thank you for making me feel like a friend, so I could make genuine, casual and yet beautiful photographs for you to remember your day by.

    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.

    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!! :-)

Meet the Team

Bobbi Barbarich
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.
