I hired Martin to provide the photobooth for my husband's surprise party. From start to finish, Martin's professionalism and customer service exceeded my expectations. Email responses were quick, they showed up on time and they were very friendly to my guests. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my DVD of images just a few days later. I really appreciated everything that they've done and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. Btw, Martin is also a talented wedding photographer and you definitely should consider him for your wedding. Thank you for everything.

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.

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.

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.

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 & J

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.

We highly recommend any newly engaged couple to use Butterfly Photography to photograph their wedding. We had the pleasure of working with Rosealine who was an absolute superstar. She was able to capture so many amazing moments throughout the wedding day from the ladies getting ready to the ceremony to the bridal party and lastly to the reception. We felt very confident that Rosealine would do a great job as she has photographed many different weddings at our venue. She showed us many past examples of her work and it was an aspect that made us both feel calm for the day of the wedding as she had an intimate knowledge of the location and was able to suggest the best spots to capture the moment. The quality of the photographs were amazing. She was able to make us look like models! Every photo was extremely flattering and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Rosealine was extremely down to earth, professional, and punctual. If we had any questions, Rosealine was able to answer in a prompt manner and was extremely helpful in helping to determine locations, poses and timing to help pull off our big day. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of our photographs and could not be happier to have such amazing photos to look at to remember our special day!

Also, we used the photo booth option from Butterfly Photography for our wedding day. The service was excellent and it was a huge hit amongst our guests. They had a large variety of props and costumes to create a fun atmosphere. We were also very impressed that our guests were able to receive copies of their photos right away and that the bride and groom were also able to have an electronic copy of the photos as well. It allows us to see how much fun our guests were having as well when we were busy with other aspects of the wedding. We definitely recommend hiring Butterfly Photography for any future weddings. Thank you so much Rosealine & Martin!!

Martin and Rosaline were a pleasure to work with! We are very happy that we chose Butterfly photography for our engagement and wedding photos.
The first time we met with Martin, he was great answering all our questions, giving suggestions and was always available to answer any questions we had.
We met him and Rosaline for our engagement photo shoot and they were great at scoping the area and choosing the best places for photos.
We got married almost a month ago and we already received the photos! They all turned out beautiful and we are very happy with them!
We chose to get a photography package that includes an album. We have to choose 40 photos for it but it'll be hard to do because we like too many photos, which is a great problem to have.
We also used their photo booth service, which our guests loved and had lots of fun with and my husband and I did too. It was a great compliment to the photography service they offer and a great and meaningful favour for our guests.
We would definitely recommend Butterfly photography.

Martin provided photography for our engagement and wedding celebrations. He was always quick to reply to our enquiries and kindly offered us many location suggestions as my wife and I are from out of town. He was a pleasure to work with and made our photo shoots enjoyable and fun. His enthusiasm is a delight! He was full of ideas on making the best of our photo locations and was very patient with us. Unfortunately it rained during our wedding day, but Martin never complained once and was always eager and smiling despite getting very wet! I would highly recommend him for any photo session.
