Founder & Head Photographer
Hey there! I'm Tristen, the founder of Wander West.
I have always had a soft spot for touching moments, I believe that is why I love photographing intimate weddings and elopements so much. There is so much raw emotion I always end up crying at every one! I just love seeing people being so happy.
Exploring is also something I am passionate about, which is why no wedding destination is out of bounds for me (my dream destination wedding to shoot would be Antartica, wouldn't that be such a cool location?!). My main goal is to visit as many countries as I possibly can. I may not have had the opportunity to see the majority of the world as of today, but I know some day I will have seen it all!
I love small weddings and elopements because I believe your wedding day should be about you and your partner, not about traditions and family expectations. It is a day where you and your best friend promise to be each others until your last breath, and that is truly beautiful. Which is why the whole day should be about you both! I'm here to help make your big day the best day ever by not only being your photographer, but by lending a hand if things get stressful, helping you make decisions, and being your personal guide throughout the whole day. Elopements are also great because you don't have to follow a strict schedule if you don't want to. We can take our time and make sure everything is just as you dreamed it would be!
Hiya, I'm Lily Russell, I'm a wedding,travel and event videographer!
I’m inspired by all aspects of human love, wonder and expression. My passion for film and photography started with my first “Cool pix” point and shoot camera at the early age of 11, which then eventually led me to attend the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver for film production and sound design.
I now run my very own Videography company (Lilyventures Creative) here in Victoria BC! I’d love to work with you, I can guarantee quality, Professionalism and ton of dad jokes!
TRUSTED Associate & SECOND SHOOTER
I’m Stephanie, a Victoria BC based Boudoir and Wedding photographer. I moved to the beautiful Vancouver Island from the UK around 2 years ago where my love of travel photography inspired me to move into portraiture and wedding photography.
I believe in capturing the little things resulting in a style that tells the unscripted story of your wedding day with all the details, big and small. My relaxed approach will allow you to take a deep-breath and really enjoy the moment!
My absolute favourite part of photographing weddings is capturing the intimate moments between friends and families that can sometimes be missed in amongst all of the excitement! It's these little moments that make up all the fun throughout the day, and they deserve to be documented and remembered!
