    My husband and I were both extremely happy with F8 Photography.
    When shopping around I contacted about 10 different photographers and F8 Photography was one of the few photographers who offered one hour sessions and for the best price.
    Our photography experience was way better than I ever would have imagined. Both my husband and I are a little camera shy and were feeling a bit apprehensive with hiring a photographer. But I am so glad we did!
    Both Trish and Matt (F8 Photographers) were complete naturals at making us feel 100% comfortable and happy. We enjoyed ourselves the entire time and ended up extending our one hour photo shoot to two hours!
    They were extremely enthusiastic and really love what they do. They have an excellent eye for detail making sure every shot is perfect. I found Matt to be very efficient.
    He knew exactly where to take photos and was very fast at getting the shots he wanted. He is a very experienced photographer. They're very easy going lovely people who make you feel at ease. They're beyond accommodating. They traveled 2.5 hours for our photo shoot for an extremely fair price. They also lent me their daughters pink rubber boots as I was not prepared for the messy mountain weather. Lastly, our photos turned out absolutely magnificent. High quality beautiful photos that are truly breath taking.
    Overall our entire experience with F8 Photography was perfect and there is not one thing I would have changed. We are both so happy we went with F8 Photography.

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Matt and Trish of F8 photography. Having F8 shoot our wedding was one of the best decisions we made as they perfectly captured our memories of the day. From our first introduction, they emphasized that our wedding was something to be cherished, and gave us confidence that they would do everything possible to produce the best quality photos.

    We realized that, apart from each other, we spent the most time on our wedding day with our photographers. Matt treats this as a privilege, and is acutely aware of how the presence of the photographer can impact parts of the day. On our day, both photographers were easy to get along with, brought a passionate energy, respected our timelines and personal requests, and were invisible when they needed to be (like during our first look…which we highly recommend!). Having them around actually added to our day, and because they've been through so many weddings they are experts at dealing with nerves, tears, and any crisis that could arise.

    Beyond being accommodating, fun, and easygoing on the day of, the images we received soon afterwards are even better. Matt truly is an artist as the pictures he takes are stunningly beautiful. They also capture the emotions of the moment in an honest way. F8’s galleries and blog posts highlight how every wedding they shoot comes away with show stopping images personalized to each couple.

    Your photographer is one of the most important investments you will make for your wedding as it’s one of the few things that will outlive the day. In our experience, F8 provides exceptional value. Their prices are more than reasonable after shopping around, and their quality of work and professionalism exceed the thousands of other photographers out there.

    Yes! f8 photography made us feel comfortable, which was important to us. Most couples describe taking wedding photos as a "chore" but it was the opposite with f8, we enjoyed the entire process. I would recommend f8 photography because they organically captured our day and all of our emotions - going through our finished album puts us right back there on the day that we both said "I do".

    Loved having Anet cover my Wedding. Considering she was covering two camera shy subjects, she made us look natural and totally captured our happiness. I think this was one of the first times that she covered a wedding solo, without Matt, but she did a fantastic job. It was also great to have a photographer that could speak to my family in Spanish.

    We got married in summer of 2016. Our photographers, Anet & Matt were fabulous partners to work with and were able to assist us in capturing special moments of our multicultural / multi-day wedding. We can't thank them enough for their expertise and kindness. Trish / Matt was able to help and respond our emails in a reasonable time frame that allowed us to plan our day and photos we wanted.

    Matt was wonderful to work with during our wedding day and Trish was very good to work with regarding planning. Matt made us relaxed and kept it authentic. Fees were minimum and timing to receive photos back was very good. We opted for another route regarding album.

    I first met Matt at the Wedding Fair in Calgary, and I knew then and there that I wanted him to shoot our wedding. His energy is just so infectious! We met with Trish a little bit closer to our wedding day, and I felt an instant connection with her as well so I was so thrilled that they’d be joining us on our special day. The weather on our wedding day was less than ideal (so much rain!), but both of them remained calm and collected, making the most of the situation whilst making me, my husband, and our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera and capturing some absolutely amazing shots. They listened to what we were looking for, as well as capturing some shots that I never even knew that I wanted. I really hate having my picture taken (I can’t stress that point enough), so I was glad to have found photographers that I felt comfortable enough around to just relax and enjoy the moments.

    I would highly recommend f8 Photography to anyone who is looking for an amazing photography experience. They are professional, personable, and they simply do stunning work. I look forward to having them as our photographers for years to come.

    The best!! We got married last summer and f8 captured our day in the very best way!
    We were first introduced to f8 at my sisters wedding 3 years before we got married. They did such an amazing job at my sisters wedding that we didn't even look at other photographers when we were planning our wedding.
    We met Matt about 18 months before our wedding and he made us feel so at ease and made us feel that f8 were our people and we knew we could trust them to capture our most precious. A few weeks before the wedding we met with Matt, Ang and Theresa to discuss what we wanted in our pictures and to get to know the girls.
    Ang and Theresa were at the helm on our wedding day and they were incredible. Our wedding was in Banff and they were able to capture the beauty of our surroundings while also capturing the intimate moments of our wedding. The girls were an absolute blast to have as part of our wedding and felt more like our guests then our photographers.
    The pictures that they captured are so stunning, I love them more each time I look that them! We have only the best things to say about everyone on the f8 team.
    Wedding photos are one of the longest lasting memories of your wedding day and you can trust f8 100% with preserving the day.
    You cannot go wrong with f8!

    Mat and Trish were amazing throughout the entire process. Right from the very first time we met they really worked hard to understand us. It was incredible the amount of details that they customized to our wants and needs. The engagement session with Mat was an absolute blast and he really brought out not only the best shots but also truly captured our love on film. They worked together for the wedding and having two different perspectives for each part of our day really enhanced our experience and the pictures. So many of our guests commented about how professional and prepared Mat and Trish were. They captured every single special moment quite often from two different aspects. Mat is a master at incredible candid shots and Trish caught all the details and portraits perfectly. We would recommend them to everyone that wants superior quality pictures that will capture your memories. Not to mention they are a lot of FUN which really made it a great experience.

    We contacted f8 eleven months before our wedding to meet up and see if we would be a good fit. The meeting went really well and we instantly felt comfortable and connected with Matt's humor and style of photography. He was really enthusiastic about our unique wedding details. The engagement shoot was great and helped us be more comfortable being photographed without looking or feeling awkward, which really helped for the wedding day pictures. We didn't want too many posed pictures (other than group family pictures) and wanted some natural candids of the day and our guests. Matt picked out multiple locations for possible wedding day pictures so we had many options to suit timing and weather, so no matter what, the photos turned out amazing. f8 captured all our favourite moments of the day and kept us laughing and enjoying every minute of it. We are so happy we picked f8 as our wedding photographer.
