    Best Experience!

    We had an amazing experience with Vaughn! Not only did our photos turn out better than we imagined, but he made us feel so comfortable. We’re not photo people so this was huge. Overall the best experience!

    Amazing photographer!

    Only fantastic things to say about Vaughn!
    The day of our wedding he was so great with making everything so comfortable and easy. Vaughn and his assistant caught every important moment that we wanted to catch, and even more! We received all of our digital downloads super quick, which is unheard of! Vaughn puts all of himself into his work and it really shows, every photo is a work of art. We are so happy that we found him!

    Vaughn Barry Photography's reply:

    Aww, it has been such a pleasure getting to know you guys and following your story from shooting your surprise proposal through to the big day itself! Thank you!!

    Our gallery is spectacular and you wont be disappointed!

    We cannot say enough great things about Vaughn. From our initial conversation to receiving our photos Vaughn was a pleasure to work with. He is professional, creative and makes you feel very comfortable throughout your day. We booked 3 hours for our small COVID wedding and Vaughn captured everything we could have imagined.

    If you are looking for a mix of in the moment and posed shots Vaughn is your best choice. A common comment I hear from people who have seen our photos is that "every photo is more beautiful then the last!". Our gallery is truly spectacular and you wont be disappointed.

    Vaughn Barry Photography's reply:

    Congratulations again Michelle and Ricardo, it was a beautiful day at Sherwood Inn! Thank you sooo much for the kind words - you rock!

    Incredibly Talented Photographer, creative, best investment we made for our wedding

    Vaughn Barry was the best investment we made on our wedding day! When we got engaged we knew finding a high quality, talented photographer would be a top priority. Our wedding photos would be a very important part of helping me and my husband relive our wedding day memories over and over and pass them along for generations to come. There would be no compromise. With our high expectations in mind I am pleased to say Vaughn Barry exceeded all of them! It was truly a pleasure working with him.

    He did our engagement photos and our wedding photos. When Vaughn sent them to us after the wedding we were blown away!! My husband and I had tears in our eyes being able to relive that day in the most perfect way through Vaughn’s exceptional photography. He did not just take pictures, he captured our story, our personality and took the time to understand why our venue was so special to us and with that he craftily brought the beautiful elements of our venue into each photo. His photos are breathtaking and unique.
    We had never hired or worked with a photographer prior to this and were nervous for the photos and what it would be like to work with a photographer. Vaughn himself was incredible to work with, he helped us build our wedding day timeline, made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and genuinely made us smile and laugh a lot.

    My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Vaughn Barry for your photography needs. You will NOT be disappointed, in fact I bet he will blow you away with his talent and professionalism. You will not find a better photographer for the most important day of your life!

    The Best Photographer Around

    When I got engaged I knew my top priority was photography. I did my research and came across some awesome photos on Instagram by Vaughn. Instantly I knew he was the right choice for us. We officially met Vaughn at our engagement shoot and it was like we had known him forever. With our mutual love of the Toronto Maple Leafs the shoot went super easy and Vaughn was extremely thorough and professional. Vaughn answers questions very quickly and helps create awesome wedding day timelines. He takes the lead for the day and creates amazing photographs. He endures bushes, trees, water and mosquitoes for the best shot. We really enjoyed our wedding day with Vaughn and his assistant Sam. We could not have asked for more amazing pictures. It was an awesome day and now we have beautiful photographs to show off forever. Thank you so much Vaughn!!

    Amazing!

    When we decided to have a destination wedding, I started doing my research and one of the first things I came across was Vaughn Barry Photography! After looking at his website I was sold, and it is by far the best decision we made! Working with Vaughn was nothing short of amazing. From the beginning he was very easy to communicate with and was eager to help in any way he could by sharing his knowledge of the resort we had picked! Even though we live in different parts of the Country we instantly felt comfortable in choosing him after video chats to get to know one another and make plans for the big day!
    Myself and Kyle can be very uncomfortable in front of a camera and this was our first time doing any sort of photoshoot, but Vaughn made things so much easier and helped us relax and enjoy the whole experience. He gave us a quick lesson in posing and provided guidance throughout the whole day to make sure we got amazing photos. We loved how he would show us his camera after certain shots, helping us relax a little to know they were in fact turning out pretty awesome and we were not screwing the whole thing up!
    By the end of the day Vaughn had fit in great with our whole group, making some instant friends with his choice of Toronto Maple Leafs hat! He even went that extra step in learning some of our Newfoundland phrases to throw into the conversation wherever he could and genuinely wanted to get to know us and our group! To us this was a great quality to have in the person who was spending one of our most important days with us. Everyone still raves about how amazing he was to work with and how absolutely beautiful the pictures are.
    The following day Vaughn was back with us ready to get messy for a trash the dress photoshoot. Highly recommend doing this! We got our whole wedding party in on the first few shots and it was so much fun. We were so much more relaxed by this point and the pictures turned out amazing. You know you have a great photographer when he is lying in the waves with his camera and heading into the ocean with everyone to get those action shots!
    Pictures were very important to me for our wedding day as this was what we would have to look back on when it was all over. Vaughn had our full photo gallery back to us in under two weeks and they are everything I could have hoped for and more! You will not be disappointed in choosing Vaughn to capture your big day!!

    Thanks so much Nicole and Kyle, we had ourselves a blast getting to know our new Newfie family from out east!

    Amazing experience!!

    Vaughn recently flew down to our destination wedding in Jamaica and deserves a glowing review for how perfectly he captured our day. We've worked with a few photographers in the past, and the experience we had while working with him was fantastically different.


    Vaughn was very likeable and relaxed. In combination with that, his strong teaching skills in how to pose, and clear descriptions in what he wanted us to do during shots allowed us to enjoy our wedding day without another added pressure. I can’t stress enough how important that was for us. We were genuinely sad to say goodbye after the day was over.


    Vaughn was very intentional and thought-out in taking his photographs. Instead of 100s of shots from every conceivable angle, he spent time considering compositions, had us pose, took a handful of photographs and immediately showed us the mind-blowing results. His method is evidence of an experienced professional. Seeing the photos in the moment really gave us a confidence in the final results and took away our worries.


    Vaughn delivers FAST. Ridiculously fast. We had our complete photo collection in just over one week after the wedding. That’s incredible after hearing horror stories of people waiting 4+ months.


    Let me reiterate the quality of the photos - I’m an amateur photographer, I was raised by a professional photographer, and I like to think I’m a well informed critic in the field. My wife is wedding-obsessed and has looked through hundreds of photo albums from beautiful weddings and talented professionals. We are both floored and ecstatically happy with the results Vaughn has given us.


    He will help establish a workable, well-planned timeline for the day of your wedding. If you want to do things purely your way, no problem. He gives clear suggestions without pushing an agenda.


    He provides 3-month hosting on his well-functioning site for you to download and back-up your collection after the event.


    THANK YOU, VAUGHN!

    January wedding

    I discovered Vaughn when a friend of mine got married, I loved his photos and made the decision that Vaughn was shooting mine. Best decision ever.
    Vaughn was easy to talk to, so helpful, offering suggestions for keeping warm, so friendly, and professional.
    Our photos are breath taking. We are eternally grateful for the time he spent with us, and the beautiful memories we have from our very special day. Worth every penny.

    Vaughn Barry Photography's reply:

    It was an honour having a fellow photographer choose me to shoot their wedding - thanks so much for having me Stephanie!

    An true artist and consummate professional

    Hiring Vaughn was the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. He is genuine, talented, and takes his job seriously. He set up classic group shots, artistic pictures, and candids expertly and with friendly direction. My husband and I are a bit shy but felt so comfortable in front of his lens. He is also great with kids and directed The five years old flower girl and ring bearer with ease. He seems to truly enjoy his job and was energetic the whole day and his happy disposition never wavered. Hire Vaughn without a doubt in your mind. An investment in his talent will give you priceless pictures and memories. Looking at his pictures evokes all the emotions I felt on my wedding day. He seemed to have an intuitive knowledge of moments to capture and seemed to be in a million places at once. Highly recommended!!!

    If Photos are important to you--Vaughn is the right choice!

    Pictures have always been super important to me, so I knew long before we got engaged that our photographer would be the most important choice we would make once the time came to plan a wedding. When I came across Vaughn’s website, it was immediately apparent that he was the guy to capture our wedding. When we met him the following week, it only cemented my first instinct about hiring him. His personality, like his photos, is impossible not to like. I have now had three experiences with him—our engagement session, my bachelorette, and our wedding. All three times he made everyone involved feel comfortable and at ease, he had great ideas and accepted ours as well, and all three times he had beautiful photos delivered to us is a very short amount of time. We have received numerous complements about all of his photos we’ve shared, and I can’t stop looking at them myself. He is also up for literally anything (we dragged him through 5 feet of snow) and super good at keeping a straight face when he is in on a joke being played on the subject of the photo. Needless to say, the next time we need a photographer, he will be the first guy we call. He seems like he’s part of the family now anyways.
