Martin was absolutely wonderful to deal with! Leading up to the wedding he answered all my emails promptly and helped me to decide when and where to do my pictures on the day of. I knew right away when I met him in person for a quick 'interview' that he was definitely the perfect person to work with on our day.Sent on 17/01/2013
On the day of, Martin was efficient, and it never felt like he was intruding. In fact, without Martin's gentle steering I'm not sure everything would have happened on time. We left ourselves in his hands when it came to where our portraits should be taken and I am absolutely in awe of some of the photos we ended up getting. My husband who was against spending any money at all on photography said "Worth every penny" the moment he saw our album. In fact there are so many beautiful pictures I'm not sure how we'll ever narrow them down for our album.
As for the monetary end of things the value for his services in unreal. I was quoted some staggering prices by other vendors, so when I got a quote back from Martin I was worried at first. But after looking at his portfolio, knew we'd be in good hands. I have suggested Butterfly Photography to a few friends already and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone thinking of using them for any occassion. I will cherish the pictures that Martin took the rest of my life, and I'll be proud to show them to any future children we have. Thank you Martin!

I found Butterfly photography looking on google, but I wish I had waited. During the engagement photos everything was great (with only 2 people) and I was happy with the way my photos turned out. On my wedding day I felt completely let down. Rosalines attitude that day was harsh and abrupt. I felt like every photo was a production and it was causing tension with the bridal party. I felt like I didn't get all of the photos I would have liked to.Sent on 18/09/2016
I am most dissappointed by the photobooth. I actually regret paying for it. Rosaline refused to set up equipment before photos which meant we had to wait until after photography was done for the night to set up the photo booth, which she did not tell me before I paid my deposit. She was very demanding the moment people walked out of the photobooth to give props back, not even giving guests a chance to do it without being asked. I understand not wanting to lose items, but people are having fun and not instantly thinking about putting things down. A LOT of my guests were complaining that she was being rude. It caused the photobooth to hardly even be used, with the line often being empty, therefore my regret in spending money on it. I at one point watched Rosaline chase a family member around the ballroom because he forgot to take his hat off. Later she even GRABBED my brother in law, which is never ok!!!
When I emailed her after the wedding to give some constructive feedback for the future she emailed me back with a long list of excuses which made me incredibly frsutrated (ex. "we have guests colliding into one another which could lead to injury", "sometimes guests are unable to see where they are going because they are wearing props", "sometimes guests feel claustrophobic" and so on. Her response to grabbing my BIL was that he was unsteady, yet other guests saw and that was not the case. Her responses made me feel like she didnt even care that her client was unhappy and that she took no resposibility for her own actions/behavior.

We hired Martin at Butterfly Photography for 9 hours on our wedding day. We planned an outdoor wedding and Martin scouted some fantastic locations to realize our vision of nature pictures downtown. He listened to our ideals and we have now received our edited photos within 3 weeks - quick turnaround time and beautiful images. What really stands out are the amazing candid moments. We barely noticed him taking photos at the ceremony and reception; he makes you feel comfortable and kept the whole day flowing right on schedule. Our wedding day ended up being the stormiest day of the year, and one of the only rain days in the summer. Martin rose to the occasion, scouted amazing new locations and even brought Rosaline with him to deal with the rain challenges. She was a complete blessing, pausing to adjust my dress or quickly coordinating people for photos. The images are more than we had hoped for and we highly recommend Butterfly Photography. Outstanding value with very competitive rates, a WOW experience and a team you enjoy working with and having there on your wedding day.Sent on 20/09/2015

We were so delighted to work with Martin! He is professional and punctual, extremely personable (all our family and friends loved him). He managed to get photos from all angles and we didn't even notice him moving around (it's like he's a ninja). Looking at our photos, you would think we had several photographers shooting the same scene. He has an extremely artistic eye - we love every photo! We took pictures at Capilano suspension bridge on the busiest Saturday. Martin managed to get beautiful shots without anyone in the background. His confidence and skills really shone through as he asked tourists to move, wait and stand aside. We couldn't have picked a better person to record our memories. Thank you Martin and Butterfly Photography! - L & JSent on 13/07/2015

Butterfly Photography provided us with memories that we will cherish forever. Martin and his wife did such an amazing job on our photos. I was really nervous of being in front of the camera but Martin has a way of making you feel completely comfortable. They were always very professional and on time. I highly recommend using Butterfly Photography for any special occasion.Sent on 25/11/2014
