At Draht Photography, we want to deliver photos that are different. They shoot in the rain, climb mountains for sneakaways, shoot low light photos in the headlights of your old company truck. Their focus is also in those candids, in capturing real emotions, real expressions, and real smiles, so that everything you see when you look back on your special day is nothing but the most authentic chronicle of your wedding.

    I鈥檓 not even sure where to start with Eric Draht He is unbelievable at what he does and he will probably take all of the professional photos I need done for the rest of my life, which is saying something since we鈥檙e located in Calgary and he鈥檚 located in Vernon, but trust me, he is worth it. I decided to choose my photographer by going through random photos tagged in locations all over Vernon and fall in love with the photos before we looked at investments. I came across 5 photos that I investigated, all 5 were Eric鈥檚. I got extremely lucky that he was in our budget, I would have went over though if it meant having him, but shhh don鈥檛 tell him that. From our initial meeting in early 2016 to our wedding on September 2nd, 2017, Eric has been nothing short of a dream to work with. Our engagement photos made me feel so beautiful and trust me that鈥檚 hard to do in a photograph. They are timeless and we got so many compliments on them, not to mention I got them back 24 hours after the shoot. But timing and budget aside something that drew me to Eric was his passion for photography. It has never seemed like work, he is always positive and upbeat and always telling stories about the new things he tried with some other clients. He truly puts 110% into EVERYTHING he does, which says a lot considering he photographs 3-4 weddings a week during peak season, but that doesn鈥檛 seem to impact the fact that he ALWAYS puts up a sampler the night of the wedding so you having something beautiful to look at the next morning and turns around your entire album in about 3 weeks. He鈥檚 passionate about taking photos but also editing them, which is job I would not want. I am so grateful to have had Eric photograph our special day and I look forward to all the photos that he鈥檒l take for my family in the years to come. I literally cannot recommend Eric enough to people and he was my favorite vendor from our wedding and made my day so much better because he was always in control of the situation and ensured no special moments were missed. I鈥檝e included our wedding sampler so you can see what I mean! http://bit.ly/paddlewheelhall

Eric Draht
Photographer

I am a full time wedding photographer who lives between Vernon and Kelowna, British Columbia, in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. My goal is to create emotional symbolism in my photographs. To deliver professional and a unique service, with a splash of imagination. I've won a few awards and have been recognized in this past decade for wedding photography, so there must be something to it.

To be honest, weddings excite me like nothing else does. My images are intimate and personal, often quiet. That bit of nervousness right before the ceremony, that look of excitement when the bouquets first come in, that expression when the groom first sees his lovely blushing bride. The speeches make me teary, the first dance lights me up. I live for the raw emotion and vulnerability weddings bring along with them. That goes for you, and your guests. At your special event, everything should be documented. My mission is to make images that actually mean something to you - more than just a pretty picture.

I also enjoy teaching. At the moment, I'm teaching five classes on photography a week, comprised of over 60 students every two month semester. We have beginner lessons, advanced lessons, and level three lessons. I'm honored to have many established photographers taking the advanced lessons. It reminds me that in this craft, we are here to learn. And there's always something to learn.

And besides - It's not just the photos. The stories behind them entrance me. A wedding out in the wilderness, a few friends sharing some drinks under a bridge, an elderly couple proudly posing with their new grandchild. They're all reminders of why I do this. I love meeting the brides, chatting with the bridesmaids after the ceremony, hiking to the top of a mountain to get that elusive fog shot. They are markers in time, a weapon against the quiet forgetting.

The stories we capture will live on, our children will look at our faces on screens, trying to get a glimpse of us. Of our lives, our passions. Some of us were born to travel, some to write. I was born to put this story together.
