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.

Services offered

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 recently has Neil as our wedding photographer, I can't give enough stars to reflect the work, time, professionalism, kindness, attention to detail and overall how impressed not only ourselves and our guest were with Neil. Neither of us are used to being in front of a camera, but we wouldn't have changed a thing with Neil. The one photo we have seen so far, we are very impressed with the way he captured our special day and look forward to seeing the rest.

Highly Recommended!

If you believe that wedding photography is one of the most important aspects of your wedding, then Neil Slattery is the person to hire, because your wedding photos are as important to him as they are to you. Neil is very experienced, highly skilled, is responsive and easily accessible, and works hard for his clients, before and after their events, including scouting locations in which to shoot. Neil can give valuable input on wedding day timelines and logistics. He easily and confidently kept my wedding party on time and on task during the getting ready, first look, and pre-ceremony photos. When behind the camera, Neil speaks with such kindness, gentleness, and encouragement; he helped put every member of our wedding party at ease in the moments when each of us felt awkward in front of the camera. Every member of our wedding party had nice things to say about working with Neil, highlighting in particular his sense of humour, confidence, skill, and encouragement. My husband and I recommend Neil without hesitation.

Best decision of the wedding

I couldn’t recommend Neil more. From planning to flexibility to opinions to unbelievable results, this was our most helpful and reliable decision. I am in love with every single photo. Neil was flexible during date changes, pandemic rules and venue adjustments. Though you’re paying a photographer, you’re getting so much more. He is such a joy to work with and you can’t go wrong.

Amazing Photographer!

Neil was amazing. His planning session really helped us to know what to expect, and kept the photo sessions running smoothly. The end results were incredible and our favourite part is that Neil not only captured the photos we requested, but also caught the amazing moments in between and throughout our celebration that make the best memories.

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!

We came across Neil's work during the massive task of finding a photographer for our wedding. From the moment we initially met Neil to see if he would be a good fit, he was incredibly generous and very professional. It was very apparent to us that he wasn't just another person with a camera, masquerading as a photographer. His experience, eye for detail and our preference for his final products ultimately sold us on choosing him as our photographer. Neil was amazingly helpful with finding locations for our engagement session as well as our wedding day photography (we live 8 hours away in Calgary!). He is incredibly skilled at interpreting the environment and surroundings and always seemed to have a vision of what he wanted to capture. That being said, he was flexible when it came to unplanned situations and was able to roll with the punches, which we really appreciated! Neil was incredibly accommodating, and put up with all our ridiculous quirks and requests. His team members were also fantastic, friendly and a pleasure to be around. Neil and his team were also outstanding working with our videographers from Vancouver. Even they commented on his professionalism and skill! Neil works insanely hard to produce amazing results in a very timely fashion. We, along with all our family and friends, absolutely love the images he has captured and produced for us. Neil, thank you so much for all your hard work and for capturing our special day!

Professional and make us all feel confident

Neil was amazong to work with, we often went to Neil for advice as we knew that he would have the best ideas. We ended up moving the direction our wedding was facing and I think it was an amazing idea! We are so excited to get back the photos. Neil made me feel confident and beautiful and was a joy to work with!

Comfortable and Professional

Our experience with Neil was phenomenal! He was always available to answer any questions we had and helped us sequence our ideas and vision into the perfect day. Neil was extremely accommodating and it felt like he was part of our family during our small and intimate wedding.
