When choosing your Wedding Photographer you're trusting them with one of life's most important memories.
   
 Please ask the following important questions before you decide


Is my photographer experienced?

My name's Cal Colborne, along with my daughter Jenn and our associates Karen and Eve we're full-time professional Wedding photographers right here in Muskoka.  Weddings are our only business.

With over 2000 Weddings experience we are Muskoka's most experienced Wedding Photography team.

Are you available for small Weddings?

We love intimate Weddings.  Large or small, we'll be there for you.

Check our rates and coverage options further down this page.  
What style of photography do you shoot?

Every Wedding is a story.  We use our unique blend of photojournalism and fine art photography to capture the story of your day moment by moment.

We like pictures to be relaxed and natural so we help you find great settings and encourage you to be yourself. 

Our goal is for your Wedding images to be a treasured memory for your life together and for future generations.

What are the time limits on my coverage?

We don't believe in fixed time limits.  


We're very flexible so plan your coverage the way you want it to be, we'll be there for you.



 

What Wedding Day coverage is included?

We like to start with the Bride's final preparations, usually about 2 hours or so before the ceremony, if the groom's getting ready nearby we'll cover his final preps too.  

We then continue through the ceremony, family photos, Wedding photo session, reception entrance and speeches, through the first dances at the reception, without fixed time limits.

We welcome every size Wedding.  Check our rates just a bit further down this page.

Are there travel or mileage charges?

Since we live and work right in Muskoka there are no travel charges within about 200 km of Bracebridge.

And you don't have to worry about us being stuck in traffic on Highway 400!


 If you're more than about 200 km from Bracebridge please check with us anyways.  We like to travel and our travel surcharges are very reasonable.



How many images will I receive?

We take as many as it takes to cover your day completely, there is simply no limit on the number of photos and there are no extra charges for special requests.

Every photo is fully enhanced, unmarked and ready to print anywhere you like.

Does my photographer bring back up equipment?

We have multiple sets of backup equipment available at all times.
This ensures uninterrupted coverage during every moment of your Wedding Day.  

And as a professional group of 5 of Ontario's most experienced Wedding photographers we always have a standby photographer available in the event of illness or other unexpected circumstances.

If I book you, who'll actually photograph my Wedding?


Unlike some photographers who book multiple Weddings and then hire other people to do them, we personally shoot every Wedding that we book.

If
you're from outside the area or we're not able to meet right now, please contact us for details on booking your wedding electronically.

We'll be happy to meet with you at any future date that you're in Muskoka, since Wedding Photography is our full -time profession our time is usually quite flexible other than Wedding days.  Please note that since we travel extensively for destination Weddings during the winter months (Nov-March) we may not be able to meet with you during that time.


After your Wedding we courier your photos directly to you as soon as they're ready
(about 3 weeks after your Wedding) no matter where your new home is located.   You don't have to endure a high pressure sales meeting to get your photos and there are no delays arranging extra appointments to see your pictures.

  • Retainer is non-refundable, however, should you need to reschedule we'll give full credit for another available date. 
  • Since we only photograph one Wedding per day, we only accept Wedding coverage as detailed above.  We don't offer short term service by the hour.
  • Since we'll be working and available from the time we arrive to the time we leave, when reception coverage is included we ask that a meal be provided.
