Julia is a great photographer. She was very responsive and very prompt from the time we contacted her to ask her for a family photo session. She had suggested a really nice place for the photo shoot. The location she picked provided us with a lot of variety for the background and the photo themes. The photos are creative and fun and she delivered them in record time (24 hours!). They definitely got rave reviews from our Facebook friends. Thank you Julia!

Hi there! Our names are Julia and Cris and we are a husband and wife team. While we sometimes shoot on our own couples also often hire us to shoot their wedding together. We each have our strengths and really enjoy working together. Over the years we have adapted to each other’s styles and fine-tuned our approach.

While we always make sure to capture some posed photos we really enjoy taking a lot of natural, candid shots that highlight every individual’s personality. Photography is a lot of fun especially at joyous occasions. That being said we also take our opportunity and responsibility to capture and retell anyone’s special day very seriously. Rarely will you see us simply sitting or standing around, we are continuously moving about in search for better angles, making sure every special moment is captured in a unique and beautiful way. Each part of the day and each wedding creates a perfect setting for different types of shots whether they be fun, romantic, posed, modern, action, candid, or a unique style of their own. We like to think of our style as a style that leaves no footprint. We want to be there every moment of your wedding to tell a story of your beautiful day while making it look as natural as possible.

Martin and I planned an intimate, small wedding at our friends' garden with a close group of friends and our two year old son. It was hard for us to imagine a professional photographer in that setting. The real treat was meeting Cris over the phone. He was so easy to connect with, it felt like talking to a friend and we quickly found so many references and mutual interests in activities and experiences so we just kept talking. Martin and I finished the call feeling happy, relaxed and truly excited to meet Cris in person on the day to help us create beautiful memories of our wedding day. Cris was such a star. From the moment he stepped into my friends' home his smile, warmth and friendliness shined. Everyone enjoyed Cris' company, humour and directions which came across natural and fun. Some of our friends enjoyed taking photos of Cris taking photos :D Last week we received the photos and we were amazed. It felt like living every moment, captured in an interesting way, quite emotional, so true and beautiful. Cris has an eye of the artist and it shows in his photos. Lots of these moments and expressions Martin and I missed as the magic of the moment got overwhelming at times. I loved seeing the emotional expressions in peoples' faces, couples' hand holding during our vows, toddlers smiling and chasing bubbles. Martin and I connected within every moment, enjoying our day. Cris also beautifully captured the scenery of the garden including the brilliant shot of a Rufous hummingbird, the food, each one of our friends and many groups of friends, mingling, with lots of details and colours. Cris has an amazing ability to see that perfect moment within beautiful composition in the midst of all the activity and excitement, including three toddlers running around and creating the storm of motion wherever they moved. Thank you for these unique moments in our lives you captured so beautifully. It was such a treat to have you with us on our wedding day. We wish you all success.

When we started planning our wedding, we weren't sure we wanted to hire a photographer, but after seeing Julia's portfolio, we changed our mind – and that was probably one of our best decisions! She listening to our needs and respected every one of our requests. We wanted mostly candid shots – and no concept pictures – and that's exactly what we got. She was so flexible, meeting us at our place for some family portraits, walking around False Creek for some romantic shots and then following us during the entire wedding. Julia is such a sweet and friendly person. I hate having my picture taken, but it only took a minute before I was totally into it and enjoying myself. She gave us amazing tips as to how to pose, and also did everything in her power to capture those small "in-between" moments when we weren't actually posing. Thanks to her, we have so many memories of all the laughter and love that was shared on that special day. All of our guests told us how professional and amazing she was. Julia – Thank you so much for being part of our wedding and making sure we looked our best on all of our pictures. We've already gotten so many compliments!

We found Marincat Photography to be very courteous and professional. Both Cris and Julia are very skilled at getting all the right photos. They really took the time to get to know us and find what we were looking for in regards to the selection of photos and style. We feel so blessed to be able to have them as our wedding photographers.

Purely out of luck, we booked Julia and Chris for a last minute outdoor rainy day engagement / civil ceremony shoot. They are so friendly to work with and very quick to respond to any question we had. They also agreed to meet with us a week before the event to talk about ideas and just to get to know us better. I found it does help to send them pictures online that are in line of what you wanted. Julia paid a lot of attention to what we sent her beforehand and did some amazing shots that are inspired by the picture yet exceeding the original!

It was a rainy day, but we embraced it and got some really interesting shots playing with the reflection of the water, light, forest and beach. Julia and Chris was very excited and passionate about getting the pictures we wanted, even when they are soaked up in rain. Julia is also very good at taking candid shots that just looks natural and like the real you. They also give you all of the photos taken on the day and was super quick with photo processing. We were in a rush to get the photos for an appointment. Julia stayed up until 4am to get our photos processed only a week after she give birth to her newborn baby girl. Photo ninja!

We are planning to do another shoot with them when the sun comes out at a special location. I would recommend them to anyone who wants an awesome photographer!
