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.

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 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.

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!

I don't even know where to start. First of all I want to thank Neil with all my heart for capturing so many beautiful moments during our wedding. He does incredible work! The passion he has for photography shows through every single photo. He has an unbelievable talent and each and every one of his photos shows that! The photos are UNBELIEVABLE, I received them yesterday and cannot stop looking a through them. I cannot stop looking at this fairytale wedding that couldn't possibly be ours! Gorgeous! They are just absolutely breath taking!
He became one of the family on more than one occasion throughout the week of meeting with us, he is professional, but direct. Let him work, because he is getting those shots you will thank him for later!
We highly recommend Neil!
