Information about Neil Slattery Photography
Neil Slattery approaches his work in a straightforward and simplistic manner. He prefers to scout locations beforehand, get to know the friends and family during rehearsals and make a plan to make sure that his part in such an important day, goes smoothly. Through such detailed preparation, he is able to gain an idea of what any potential future complications might occur and make plans accordingly.
After falling in love with photography as a child when his grandfather gave him an old film camera, he spent a serious amount of time and money on this hobby but eventually lost interest. However, the story does not end here. He was inspired again in high school which influenced him to attend Emily Carr.
After he graduated, he went to work for advertising photographers in Vancouver and that was where lightning struck when he realized interaction with people was what he really enjoyed about photography. He broke into the wedding photography industry in 2005 after having photographed a friend's nuptials and the subsequent advent of digital cameras.
He identifies with contemporary, photojournalism, portraiture and traditional styles which he uses to produce both digital and physical high resolution photographs. Couples have the option of selecting albums, canvas, flush mount, matted prints, save the date and thank you cards. Additional to wedding day shoots, prospective newlyweds can also choose boudoir, engagement and trash the dress photo sessions. He offers the choice of using multiple locations and a second photographer.
How he works
This photographer prefers a more cinematic approach to posing rather than the traditional posing style. To help couples, rather than just making suggestions, he shows the couples what he means and also he directs them through a story to help bring forth more natural movements to make the photos seem like a photographer was never even there.

We had the pleasure of meeting Neil at our friends’ wedding. So when we got engaged, we knew we could trust our day to be captured beautifully by Neil. Neil did our engagement photos and they were amazing. But I can say the day of my wedding Neil blew me away. He is so professional and serious about his job. He makes everything flow and always has a game plan. Neil made me feel beautiful and very comfortable in front of the camera. His work truly does not receive enough credit, and I’m not sure he even knows how talented he really is! I can’t thank Neil enough, our wedding pictures are something from a fairytale. In the future i would love to use Neil to capture our family. And I would recommend his work to anyone! Thank you Neil from the bottom of our hearts.

if I could give more stars I would!!
Neil is the most amazing photographer to work with! He shot both my engagement and wedding photos, and I could not be happier! He is creative and insightful, he ALWAYS manages to shoot you in the best light and he never made us feel awkward (he has a hilarious way of dealing with poses that don't work, that makes you laugh and move on!). He's easy to work with, gives great advice, has a ton of experience and a hysterical sense of humor! I highly recommend him for any one looking for a photographer in the Okanagan area. We got the Fun Booth for our wedding as well, and man what a riot the photos turned out to be!

Neil is an amazing photographer. I am in love with his clean, natural looking photography! He's able to capture moments so well. It won't be the last time I hire him to take photos!
He's based out of Kelowna but we hired him for our wedding in Golden. Because he hadn't taken pictures at that venue before he travelled out there on his own time, without charging, to account the area ahead of time to find locations that were great for taking pictures.
Neil goes above and beyond for his clients, and his photos are stunning. I cannot believe the amount of amazing pictures we received. It allows us to relive the day so well and captured the day forever! 100% recommend!

Neil will be shooting our wedding photos in August so this review is for the engagement session we just had with him in Vancouver. I am absolutely in love with our photos from him. Neil has exceeded all our expectations. The photos are beautiful and professional and Neil worked so hard to get us fantastic shots. We even got to see them uploaded and online 2 days after our shoot. I just can't wait to see what he'll do for our wedding. Neil is an incredibly talented photographer.
Neil did our engagement and wedding photos, not only were there a few photos to choose from, every image from him was amazing. Compared to other photographers his packages are much cheaper, and being a photographer myself, he's much better than a lot of the more expensive photographers when it comes down to it. He stayed with us the whole day of our wedding and even scouted first look locations beforehand. He kept my makeup team and wedding schedule on track(we were ahead of schedule!) and was just a pleasure to be around. Our engagement session beforehand was a huge benefit as my groom was a bit camera shy, Neil immediately put him at ease. The lighting and quality is just outstanding. Our photos are ridiculously amazing and people are still talking about how wonderful they are. We will treasure them always. I highly recommend Neil, If you want epic photos, he's your photographer.
