    Best decision we made!

    The only thing I knew I wanted for our wedding was Van Daele & Russell as our photographers! We just worked with Shawn for our engagement shoot and the photos are absolutely stunning! We were so nervous, but Shawn calmed us immediately. I didn't know that a photoshoot could be so fun! He found all our best angles, and the simple, everyday locations we chose turned out beautifully. From our first few emails, it really showed that Shawn and Clint love what they do and care so much for the couples they work with. Best decision we made!

    Whimsical, remarkable, and magical

    There are no words that can describe the level of professionalism, creativity, and raw talent that encapsulates the quality of work that VanDaele and Russell produce. I knew from viewing my friend's wedding pictures on Facebook that these guys needed to capture our special day- and that has been the best wedding decision we have made thus far. We first met Clint at our engagement shoot. Prior to our initial meeting, he was in constant contact with us, trying to understand the vision we had for our engagement pictures. I felt HEARD by him.
    Right from the moment my fiance and I met Clint, we instantly hit it off. He made us feel comfortable in-front of the camera and provided us with the perfect amount of direction the fiance and I needed to get the right shots. I wish I had a GoPro to videotape how dedicated Clint was in perfecting his angles-he was crouched in bushes, branches, and swinging over ledges just to ensure he captured the perfect shot for us.
    What really blew me away, is how he asked how we met and re-created that moment through a picture (SO CREATIVE!) Emotions took over when we received our engagement teaser pictures. Each picture was absolutely perfect and flawless and Brough us back to that moment when it was just the two of us, together in happiness in our own little world:) Their motto really stands true: whimsical, magical, romantic and timeless. The magic that they create makes my Disney Princess heart BEYOND happy. We cannot WAIT to have them with us, as they capture our special day. I will probably need a box of tissues when I look at our wedding pictures (haha). Clint, you are absolutely amazing, professional, creative, and artistic! For any bride and groom getting married, they are the best of the best! Just look at their galleries and witness the true beauty of their work:) Love you guys! Can't wait for the BIG DAY! xoxo

    In Love With their Work!

    I knew for 11yrs I would have Clint for my wedding photographer and I almost want to do it again it was so great! I'm a goof in front of a camera and he made us look so incredible that I haven't stopped smiling since I saw our pics. He captures the essence of the couple. We goofed off a lot and he caught all the fun jokes and laughs we had. There's lots of good photography out there, but then there's a great photographer. He feels like part of the wedding, not just an outsider trying to catch moments. If you can book him, do it now.

    My fiancee and I are starting to receive our pictures back from our engagement session with Clint and we are SO IMPRESSED! Our family and friends absolutely love our pictures and exclaim how much they truly capture our relationship. Working with Clint was so much fun and he really took the time to make us feel comfortable with the camera. He made sure to ask us what our vision was with our pictures and he gave us that plus more! We are very excited to see the rest of our photos and work with Van Daele once again at our wedding!!

    When I first met Clint at our engagement shoot I knew we made the best possible decision picking Van Daele & Russell as our photographers for our wedding. He immediately made me and my (now) husband so comfortable despite us both not normally being comfortable in front of the camera. On our wedding day, Clint showed up right on time and immediately made me feel so comfortable and confident. Working with him and Gord was amazing! Our guests even commented on how wonderful they seemed ! And my Mother was even raving about how great Clint was before even seeing photos. He is so truly personable and a genuinely wonderful human! AND on top of it all he produces the most WONDERFUL photos. When I got my teaser photos from our wedding I literally cried. They were perfect. So candid. So real! I’m just so thrilled they were a part of our day! I literally can’t say enough good about them! Thank you thank you thank you !!
