    Highly recommend!!!

    Shawn & Clint were AMAZING to work with. They are so kind, not at all pushy or bossy, just awesome down to earth people. I’m the type of person who wants the perfect photos, but needs someone to tell me what to do and how to get them. These guys did it ALL. From telling us how to position, to capturing some great candid photos, to literally getting every single detail of our day- these are the memories that last a lifetime and I am SO glad to have chosen truly the best photographers for our wedding day. Thank you so much Shawn & Clint!!

    Dream photographer!

    I found Van Daele and Russell while looking through pictures of past weddings at the venue I had recently booked. I immediately fell in love with their style and attention to detail.
    Clint and Gord were amazing! They were incredibly professional and fun! We laughed a lot that day!
    We recently received our teaser pics and are in awe. They are so beautiful and we cannot wait to see the rest! Thank you, thank you, thank you! By far our favorite vendor that we booked!

    The best photographers around !!!

    As soon as I saw Van Daele & Russell's Instagram I knew they were the photographers that I needed for my big day! I lovvvvved their work from the beginning. You could clearly see how unique and talented these guys were and I just had to have them. Clint and Gord showed up on my wedding day with such an energy, It was so comforting. You could tell that Clint loved his job and was just a joy to work with. He was with me for the whole day and Gord was with my husband. The 2 things that I loved the most about Clint was his personality and his sense of direction. He just took charge and he made you feel so relaxed while getting the most amazing shots. It was a long day and they never complained once. They were down to try any thing, they even went on the roof top of our hotel which was not easy. They were able to send me my teaser shots within two days of my wedding and I love them all. I am so glad that I chose to go with these guys. They captured so many great memories throughout the day. If you want beautiful, breathtaking photos choose Van Daele & Russell they will not disappoint!

    Definitely recommend!

    From our first meeting, Shawn impressed us with his knowledge of photography, weddings (even the Chinese tea ceremony), and just his ability to connect with us and our wedding vision. To prepare for our engagement shoot, we filled in a very comprehensive survey and we exchanged emails at length about the location and props. The actual engagement shoot took about 2 hours and we were smiling and laughing through it all. Maybe 4 hours after we wrapped up the shoot, Shawn had already edited and sent us a teaser gallery. We received our full gallery about 6 weeks later (as promised) and we were just so happy with how they turned out! He managed to capture the light even though it was an overcast day. And he really goes the extra mile to perfect the photos... for example, he patched up the holes in the wall that we were standing in front of! We would recommend Shawn in a heartbeat :)

    Highly recommend shawn a+++++++!

    Shawn was by far our favourite vendor for our (two-part) wedding, and we could not have had a more positive experience with him! When we were searching for wedding photographers, we stumbled upon Shawn's work and were so excited by his portfolio - the whimsical and magical approach he brought to his work, and how it always appeared to be tailored to the personalities of the individuals that were getting married.

    When we received our own teaser photos after the wedding (only two days after the actual event!), we were FAR from being disappointed. They were so so wonderful, I think I spent the first few days of our honeymoon looking at them (I wish I were exaggerating). All of our guests LOVED the photos too, evidenced by the many compliments we received. Many of them asked for a referral so they could work with Shawn for their own weddings!

    Before the wedding, Shawn was easily accessible by email or phone for all of our questions. When deciding on a package that would work for our two-day function, we really appreciated his flexibility with our requests. On the day of the wedding, he arrived earlier than expected to scope out the area for good photo opportunities. He was so easy to get along with, open, funny, professional, and down to earth. You could clearly tell he is someone who is passionate about his craft. Absolutely professional to a T!

    We would wholeheartedly highly recommend Shawn to anyone! We are so lucky and grateful to have such beautiful pictures to remember our special day for the rest of our lives. We could NOT be more excited to see our full album in the next couple of months.
