being in front of the camera
First of all, I want to say that almost every one of the couples you see on my website has been nervous to be in front of the camera and worried that they will look awkward in their photos. So if that's how you feel, don't worry - I've totally got you! I've learnt a lot of tricks along the way and use them alllll to make sure that you feel comfortable, have fun and truly connect with your person in front of the camera. Easing your nerves, making you laugh and guiding you through your day is totally my specialty!
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?
My approach to every session is relaxed and fun because the more comfortable you both are, the more authentic your images are going to be. I want your session to feel like a fun date with the one you love or a fun family hang out session! I love photos that have movement and feel natural so I always refrain from too much posing. That said, I'll be giving you direction and prompts the entire time to make you feel at ease, keep the session going smoothly and make sure your genuine love and connection for one another shines through in the images.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED + DO YOU TRAVEL?
I'm located in Victoria, BC + available for sessions locally as well anywhere from here to Parksville!

DO YOU HELP US PLAN OUR SESSION?
Absolutely! I can help you plan your session as much as you'd like me to. As soon as I am booked as your photographer, you will gain access to all of my helpful guides - including a complete session guide! This will include everything you need to know from the best session times, my favorite locations for every season, what to wear and so much more!
What should we wear to our session?
If you're unsure of what to wear to your session, don't worry - I've got you totally covered! Not only do I have a what to wear guide full of a ton of helpful tips and examples, I also have a client closet with over 50 beautiful dresses that are free to wear with any session.
what is your style & what will the final product look like?
My style focuses on emotive storytelling and prioritizes human connection over perfection. My editing is a balance between "dark + moody" and "light + airy" because I love images that feel artistic and dramatic but still timeless and true to life. Natural skin tones, soft colors and tone consistency in varied lighting situations are always a priority in my work. For every session gallery, my goal is to deliver a blend of candid moments, epic portraits set against stunning natural or architectural backdrops and creative images that play with light and space. I pour every ounce of my artistic energy into each gallery that I deliver and am so thrilled that this is what I get to do in life!
HOW DO YOU DELIVER OUR Gallery?
All of your images will be delivered in a beautiful online gallery. This allows you to easily access, share and download your photos all from one place, as well as order prints and albums.
what is your turn around time?
Within 48 hours of your session I will deliver a sneak peek gallery to you so you have some beautiful images to share with family and friends right away! After that, you can expect your full gallery in your inbox in 3-6 weeks.
DO YOU DELIVER ANY RAW OR UNEDITED IMAGES?
I never deliver any raw or unedited images. All of the images you receive will be edited with care + consistent to my style.
HOW DO YOU BACK UP OUR IMAGES?
As soon as I get home from photographing your session, I back up all of your images on to two separate hard drives as well as onto the cloud. Once your gallery is delivered, I guarantee keeping your images safe for one year. After that, it is up to you to ensure they are safely on a hard drive or usb or digitally backed up on a service such as dropbox, google photos or the cloud. (Or printed in a beautiful album!)
We have done three shoots with Everygrey photography this year, one being our wedding and we were over the moon with the service we received. Working with Arielle was easy and comfortable and she really brought all our dreams to life with her creative vision. She has a beautiful client wardrobe and had plenty of ideas for locations to take photos. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.
