    Truly Captured Like a Fairytale :)

    Farawayland Weddings have an awesome team! They captured my sister's wedding a few years ago, and now captured mine in the middle of the pandemic! My family and I really appreciated their flexibility to find a package that worked for us and them willing to travel out to an unorthodox wedding during the confusion of the COVID-19 pandemic and last minute changes to schedule. They captured beautiful moments from my sister's special day and have done the same for mine. We're so glad to have worked with them and 100% recommend them to capture your special moments!

    Photography & Live-stream video

    Lucho and Jana did a superb job at my wedding in Sept 2020. The best part was live-stream video they did for the ceremony, essential for all my global family that couldn't make it for the pandemic. They handled all the tech and sound and managed live duel camera angles. It was excellent, my family was thrilled. They also knew great spots around Vancouver for pre-ceremony shots. They were professional and efficient, I could relax and enjoy the day. Photos were great. All very reasonably priced too. I highly recommend.

    Farawayland was a wonderful, stress-free part of our wedding day.

    Farawayland Weddings helped make our wedding perfect! We were restricted to a 10-person indoor wedding, and it was very important to us to include the rest of our friends and family virtually. Farawayland Wedding was easy to communicate with, professional, and friendly. They answered all of our questions before the big day. And most importantly of all, they executed beautifully. They were unobtrusive in the church, and captured high quality video and sound of the ceremony. We received many compliments from our friends and family across the country who were impressed by the quality of the livestream. It made our wedding so much better, knowing we could trust Farawayland to take care of the streaming. Thank you so much!

    We love our wedding videos!

    We had the Farawayland's dream team of Lucho, Jana, Adam and Rafael be our videographers at our wedding, and only have great things to say about them. We asked them for something outside of their usual style - a documentary style shoot (i.e. very few posed shots) and they had no issues doing this for us. We received our 3 minute trailer a few weeks after the wedding, and love it so much! And our over-1 hour wedding video was just perfect...the music choice, the style and all the memories it captured are something we will treasure always!

    We had a Indian-Catholic and Zoroastrian wedding, and were really impressed with the research the team did, prior to the wedding, into our respective traditions and ceremonies, so they knew what to anticipate and therefore what to capture on film when the time came.

    We also wanted our wedding guests to all be able to see the ceremony as it was happening, irrespective of where in the venue they were seated. So we asked Farawayland Weddings if they could stream a live feed for us, and have it connected to the TVs that were on our venue’s walls. The team went to the venue a few weeks before the wedding, made sure they knew what cables and tech would be needed for this, and then live streamed on the day of from an iPad.

    These guys are well priced, professionals, and great at what they do. You are in excellent hands.

    Farawayland Weddings's reply:

    Sometimes we get trap in the inertia of what we do. We work continuously to create the best product possible, when the most valuable aspect of everything is the people that we work with. Nothing can't ever beat genuine love and emotion and truthfulness that you guys are individually and together. We created a beautiful video because you're such a beautiful people. We thank YOU for your trust in us.

    Videography

    Me and my husband had Farawayland as our wedding videographers in November. The whole experience is with them was very easy and smooth. We had a tight budget and the teams first priority was to get us everything we hoped for within our budget. Jana is very responsive and helpful and Lucho and his team did an amazing job editing and capturing our day. I would highly recommend!!!! We absolutely love our video and Have watched it 10 times and we just got it.

    Amazing quality of work

    My husband and I searched for photographer and videographer companies for a while, only to find that many companies only specialized on one or the other. Some companies did offer packages, but their asking price was very steep. While doing one of our searches, my husband came across Farawayland. They had everything we were looking for and more, for a very reasonable price. The package we selected included bridal hair and makeup. That was one less thing for me to worry about! When Lucho did our engagement photo shoot we were blown away by the quality of work and we were very excited to have him capture our wedding day. On our wedding day, we had an entire team working with us. They were all so flexible, polite, and creative in telling us how to pose and capturing candid moments and details. When Lucho showed us our wedding highlight video I shed tears. Our entire day was summed up into a beautiful 5-minute clip with a song of our choosing. I highly recommend Farawayland, and I look forward to continuing to work with them for other events.

    Amazing Experience! - Gary and Tracey (2018 Wedding)

    End of 2017, I was looking for a photography and videography service on our wedding day. Inquired to a lot of places, most places are really expensive and not within our budget. A quick google search I came across Farawayland’s website. Prices are very reasonable and fit our budget. Submitted an inquiry to the website, got a call back from Lucho the very next day. We talked for a few minutes to discuss on what we want and what we’re looking for, then we scheduled a face to face meetup. We then met with Lucho, first impression was he’s a very nice guy, polite and very detailed with his craft. He went and explained everything as far as what’s included in the package, the timeframe, the schedule etc. After leaving his studio and a few days later, me and my wife decided to go with him for the service. We went ahead and do our engagement shoot, it went well considering that it rained a little bit midway through. But it’s not visible in the pictures! It’s like magic! Me and my wife were not picky on the location and the shots, we let him decide most of this and we’re happy with the results. My suggestions for couples are, research for the shots you wanted to be taken, screenshot them and show to your photographer. This will fill in the gaps were your photographer is trying to think the next photo to take. Fast forward now to our wedding day, the big day! Me and my wife were in two different hotels in the morning, we got 2 groups of photographers and a videographer. They were on time, ready with their equipment, knows the shots to take and very creative. We then met altogether to take the first look photos. It was amazing! Videographer made us very comfortable with the shots. As for the rest of the day and the actual wedding ceremony, they captured every single thing that we wanted. We are happy and pleased with Farawayland! Thank you very much Lucho and to your team!
