STELLA AND TAK VANCOUVER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS BRIX RESTAURANT“My husband and I were shocked to see the most amazing pictures that came out from the time we had them for our wedding. The photos for the couples shoot was very limited due to our wedding schedule. Butter Studios had scouted a gorgeous location before hand. One that really hit our personality as a couple. In 45mins Butter Studios managed to capture some amazing moments . The service and passion really was impressed upon us when they asked for more time to take more photos, unfortunately we had to go back. Throughout the wedding they were busy buzzing about… Tak and I never realized how important pictures were for our special day, it was not until we received the pictures that we felt so blessed to have Butter Studios a part of our special day. They were professional, personable, and creative in their work. Would we hire them again?……in a heart beat!
Thanks Butter Studios for these special moments we will never forget!” – STELLA AND TAK
ASHLEIGH VOGSTAD LIFESTYLE PHOTO SHOOT HEADSHOTS PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY“After attending several weddings as a bridesmaid that Chris and Gina did the photography for, I knew I wanted to book them for my lifestyle shoot. Not only are they incredibly friendly and professional, their work is of the highest calibre and I would recommend them to anyone, regardless of the occasion. Though I was slightly nervous going into the shoot (I’d never done this before!), Chris took away all the awkwardness and we had a fabulous time. The photos are simply stunning and I’ve been using them both for personal and professional projects. THANK YOU!” – ASHLEIGH VOGSTAD – GLOBAL BEND

Allison David Vancouver Rowing Club Stanley Park Wedding Photographs“It looks like a movie-star wedding!” Those are the comments we’ve gotten from friends and family we’ve shared our photos with. Then, the next comment as people flip through is usually a sigh or even a tear when they see a tender candid moment that you captured perfectly in time. Those are my favourite shots. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos, Chris. Each time we look at them, we relive the day in all it’s splendor. You are your team did an incredible job. What surprises me is how many different angles you got of various moments because I truly don’t remember seeing any of you milling about the ceremony or the reception! You’re so stealth! Not only that, you were so polished and professional from our very first meeting that we knew we were in good hands. We just enjoyed working with you so much! Thank you again!” – ALLISON AND DAVID

“We can’t believe how many people have complimented us on your wedding photos! Family and friends have told us they are the most stunning wedding photos they have ever seen! We love, love, love our photos! Gina and Chris did a fabulous job capturing every moment of our special day, with an artist’s eye and stylistic flair. Gina was recommended to us through friends during the planning for our destination in Vancouver. We were instantly impressed by her work and professionalism. She was able to accommodate our demanding schedule and needs, maintaining competitive rates. We are so happy we had Gina and Chris photograph our wedding day! They are great to work with, fun, efficient and nonintrusive. Their ability to capture the tone and style we desired but couldn’t verbalize was amazing. We would recommend Gina for wedding photos in a heartbeat!” – JACQUELINE AND STEVEN
“Gina Chong and the team at Butter Studios are all such creative, and artistic individuals with such a high level of professionalism. I have booked several photo shoots with Gina and she has exceeded my expectations every time. She is fabulous at what she does. I would highly recommend hiring Gina at Butter Studios for any function, whether it be for a wedding, a commercial photo shoot, or even a family reunion. You will not be disappointed. They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, well this is evidently true when she gets behind a camera lens.” – SHARON MATSUMOTO
“Thank you so much for being such a reliable company to depend on. You have captured many intimate, social and casual moments at my wedding, which would not have been seen without your impeccable timing.  Chris, your team of fun and professional photographers seamlessly and effortlessly performed high quality work which in turn my husband and I are eternally grateful.

“We would like to express our sincerest gratitude for having you be a part of our big day. Words cannot describe just how amazing your talents are in capturing special “moments” that retell the events over the course of our celebration. Your photos pretty much say it all! You were patient, understanding and most of all extremely professional in taking charge when needed be and knowing when to step back and let things happen naturally. That, in itself is a difficult skill for a photographer to gauge. Gina, you definitely took the worries off our shoulders and assured us with your confidence, capabilities, and super-organization in carrying out our needs for the day. What impressed us the most were your creative layouts of the web album as well as the leather-bound album! You and the team at Butter Studios are extremely approachable which is not a surprise to see you at two of our friends’ weddings this year! We’re deeply grateful for your work and wish you continued success to your bright future! Thank you for everything and we’ll be sure to see you at other upcoming weddings!” – SANDRA AND ALLEN
“We were looking for a wedding photographer who had competitive rates and suburb quality, and didn’t think this was going to be possible until we found Gina. Upon our first meeting with her, we knew Gina was going to be the right choice. On our ‘Big Day’, she was able to accommodate all of our requests, and was very easy to work with. The quality of her work was enough to make many of our friends, family and ourselves, say, “wow, these are some of the best wedding pictures I’ve ever seen!” – Gina thank you so much for helping us preserve such a momentous day with such beautiful pictures.” – ELEANA AND JASON
“Gina – I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to communicate in words how amazing you were on our big day. Daniel and I are soooo excited to see the final product! Thank you so much for your tireless work ethic – I said it at the wedding for all the guests to hear and I’ll say it again now – Gina your talent is undeniable and I am so happy that we found you. Thank you for capturing all the love, laughter, and tears, on our beautiful day. I wish you and Butter Studios nothing but continued success!” – GLORIA AND DANIEL
“Gina were a joy to work with for our wedding. From early preparations until well after the wedding, Butter delivered very personal and attentive service. In addition, the quality of their photography and post-production have consistently impressed our friends and family. We already have close friends who have booked Gina for their own wedding next year. During the wedding day, Gina elegantly worked with our many requests and added her distinct creativity to our photos. We couldn’t be happier with her work, the photos and the beautiful flush mount albums she put together for us and our parents.” – CYNTHIA AND HANSON
“It was by fate that we were able to meet Gina. Our friend was doing a personal photoshoot with her and wanted the outdoor space of our loft as a background. At the time, we were almost ready to commit to another photographer to do our wedding photo shoot, but upon meeting Gina and seeing the shots on her camera after an hour of taking photos of our friend, we were very impressed with the quality. Shortly after the shoot, we decided to set up a meeting to see Gina’s portfolio just to make sure we didn’t rush into making a wrong decision by going with the other photographer. We were completely amazed by her work, and when she pulled out the gorgeous wedding album with the flush-mount pages, my then-fiancée-now-husband Alex was sold! From then on, our relationship hardly felt like business. Gina was patient with our many questions, and three weeks before the wedding, we decided to do an engagement shoot because we never got around to doing one. the results were amazing, and the wedding day itself could not have been better with Gina and her assistant Henry there to share our special day. Gina maintains her professionalism and yet has such an easy-going personality so we didn’t feel awkward during the shoots at all. We highly recommend Gina to anyone who appreciates high quality service. We can’t wait to have her do our baby photos when we decide to start our family! Thank you Gina!” – GLORIA AND ALEX
“Thank you for helping to make our day so very special. We absolutely love the pictures! We will be recommending you to everyone we know.” – JOCELYN AND ULI
” We were very fortunate to find Gina to do our wedding photography. From the start, she was friendly, approachable, and listened to our needs. She made herself conveniently available to meet with and was competitively-priced. We really appreciated her flexibility in creating an individual package that suited our needs. And despite our fear not being “photogenic”, Gina managed to capture many great shots without being intrusive. On the big day we appreciated her attention to detail. She captured everything – from the rings, to the topiary plants, to the menus – all the things you spend months planning then hardly notice on the day! It is wonderful to have all those memories. We have already been recommending Gina as an accomplished photographer.” – LINNA AND BRAD
“We are so pleased we chose Butter Studios to do our wedding! We were so impressed when we saw the pre-engagement and wedding pictures that we are highly recommending you to our friends who are getting married! Gina, you are so nice to work with and so professional at what you do. We wish you all the best in the future, and once again, THANK YOU for heling us preserve our wedding day with beautiful pictures.” – ALICE AND ANTHONY
“Gina and Butter Studios were awesome to work with. She spent the time to understand what style and pictures we were after and the finished product exceeded all of our expectations! When sharing our photos with family and friends we were continually asked about where we found our photographer and everyone had their favourite one. On our wedding day they were very easy to work with, flexible with small changes to schedule and always looking for the best shot. We can’t say thank you enough for capturing our day so perfectly.” – CARRIE AND MICHAEL
“We were planning a small, laid-back wedding in the park and were looking for a photographer who would fit this picture. We wanted a professional photographer to capture the moment, but weren’t interested in a huge photography package with extensive hours of shooting. Unlike other photographers who tried to up-sell us and convince us we needed more, Gina listened to us and tailored a photography package to meet our requests. Once we met Gina we were sold — she is very friendly, listens well, and her work speaks for itself. On our wedding day, Gina’s warm and charismatic nature made it easy for us to relax, to enjoy the moment, and to smile naturally. She positioned herself to capture great shots and managed to do so without ever drawing attention to herself. After our ceremony, Gina easily directed our families and guests into position for the various group shots, and did so with a smile. Everyone commented on how great she was. We are very happy with our wedding photos — thank you Gina!” – AMY AND SIMON
“Thank you a million times over for the gorgeous photos you captured for us on our wedding day. You and Chris were absolutely AMAZING! Your professionalism, talent and customer service is second to none. Every so often we look back on our photos and re-live that magical day through your stunning work. Who knew photographs could be so beautiful? We feel so fortunate to have had you as our wedding photographer and would not hesitate to recommend you to everyone we know.” – BONNIE AND NEAL
“Weddings can be hectic and trying, especially bigger ones like ours. Even when we were getting tired, Gina not only remained professional, they stayed encouraging and creative throughout. I cannot stress how important it is to have jovial customer-oriented photographers like Butter Studios at your wedding or special occasion.” – JOYCE AND TERRY
“It was amazing working with you guys! The pictures are absolutely beautiful but more importantly, you captured the spirit, joy, and character of the wedding. Photography is a tool to evoke emotions and to capture specific moments – you have certainly achieved that. It was a pleasure working with your team and we look forward to working with you again!” – JENNY AND DAREN
“Capturing our day was extremely important to us, except we needed to keep it affordable. We were imStudiostely drawn to Gina and Butter Studios. She is professional, organized, friendly and easy to talk to. We felt really comfortable with her from the first time we met her and knew she was exactly what we were looking for. She has an incredible eye for beauty, whether it’s in the small details or the emotion expressed by people. She was able to preserve special moments that might have been lost, but now we will remember them forever! Thank you Gina for everything.” – MARCY AND MIKE
“Gina is an amazing photographer! My most appreciative quality about Gina is her devotion to her work. She took over 2000 photos the day of our wedding. I was having such a good time that if I it were up to me, I would of said forget the photographs and let’s have a good time! Fortunately, Gina would NOT allow that and now that the day has passed, I have a beautiful album of memories to cherish. You’re passion is as transparent as your talent.” – ASHLEY AND CLAUDIO
“Choosing Butter Studios was one of the best wedding decisions we made. They were very receptive to all of our requests and the work they delivered was beyond our expectations. We had so much fun working with Gina and Alex and they were ever so accommodating with our tight timeline. We would recommend Butter Studios to anyone who is looking for high quality, creative photos, and a stress-free wedding photography experience.” – SONIA AND JEREMY
“As couples prepare for the biggest day of their lives, one of the greatest challenges they face is deciding on whom to entrust with capturing all the special moments that will be viewed and reflected on for years to come. Upon meeting Gina and viewing her portfolio, we knew she had a distinct talent, but more importantly, she put us at ease with her calm demeanour and professional approach. Since receiving our photos and showing them to our friends and family, one sentiment comes up again and again, “your photos are unbelievably beautiful!” We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Gina delivered spectacular photos that were above and beyond our expectations and we look forward to reminiscing the many memories that were captured on our wedding day. Thank you Butter Studios!” – STEPHANIE AND RICHARD
“I can’t say enough great things about Butter Studios. From the moment I met Gina, I felt confident that I had chosen the right photographer. After my first shoot with Gina and Margaret, I was convinced. Both of these talented women are truly masters of their crafts. Their professionalism and friendly personalities made me feel at ease. Even after the shoot, there is instant follow-up, unlike some other photographers that you have to chase down. With Butter Studios, I genuinely feel taken care of and that is why I’m constantly recommending them to friends and family. My photos are always amazing, making the entire experience pleasurable. My 3rd photo shoot is already planned! Gina and Margaret – best wishes for continual growth with your business. Keep up the stellar work!” – KAYCE QUAN
“Butter Studios is by far one of the best photography/make-up businesses around. With Gina’s expert and very professional eye for the right shot and Margaret’s mastery at make-up artistry, the dynamic duo has done an incredible job on my headshot photos. I am a performing artist, and the right picture really does say a thousand words. Butter Studios is definitely the place where the right pictures are taken. They were also able to get my photos done in a very short amount of time. You will not only come away from the experience feeling like you are in good hands, but also feeling really good about yourself! The atmosphere is positive, friendly, and relaxed. Butter Studios will definitely remain on my list for future headshots and creative photos.” – SHAZIA ISLAM
“Gina photographed my professional portraits, which I am very impressed and satisfied with. The photos have not only “wowed” me, but also my friends. I have no reservations to recommend her for her excellent skills and services. There are many amazing qualities that make Gina a distinguished photographer. What sets her apart is not only her solid technical skills, creativity and aesthetic sense that enable her to achieve visual harmony, but also her ability to naturally capture clients’ originality and individuality in the creation of beautiful work. Gina is exceptional at understanding clients’ needs, identifying individual’s photographic features, and giving her clients’ directions to show case their best features. In addition, Gina’s easy-going and agreeable personality makes her very easy to work with. She makes every shoot an enjoyable and fun experience. I am also impressed with her prompt and thorough post-shoot services, which has added a great deal of value. There is no doubt that Gina will be the first choice of my next photography project.” – JULIANA JIAO
“Gina took our family portraits and the pictures were absolutely stunning! Not only was she remarkably patient with our 5 month old daughter, but she also went above and beyond to make her laugh which made the setting very relaxed and comfortable. She was also very understanding and accommodating when Izzy got fussy! Gina finds the perfect balance between her professionalism and her easygoing and laid back personality which makes her a pleasure to work with. We look forward to future photo shoots with her!” – CHRISTINE WILLIAMS
“If anyone is getting married or knows of anyone who is, I would recommend Gina at Butter Studios. I know lots of photographers who are good at taking still shots, getting the lighting right and all but Gina has a 6th sense about the right moment and getting those “Candid” shots that bring out the REALness of the wedding. She’s based out of Vancouver but she has gone out of town/province/country for wedding.” – PETER YOO
“Many thanks for being part of our wedding. Your laughter and sweetness helped us get through the stressful times. Thanks for your kindness and patience. Your hard and amazing work will always be remembered through your wonderful pictures. We will definitely be using your services in the future again.” – NARMIN AND HAMID
“Thank you so much to Chris and his amazing team! The photobooth was a huge hit at our charity gala and the line up did not stop all night. The props were hilarious and the best part was checking out everyone’s photos online after the event. We can’t wait to use Butter Photobooth again. Thank you sincerely for taking our event to the next level!” – RENEE – Red Cross Canada

We can’t thank you enough… The pictures and your service was great! So glad to have you at our big day. We couldn’t ask for more and it was money well spent! We would hire you again in a heartbeat and have already recommended you to family and friends!” – MELISSA AND ARBIE
“I cannot thank Chris and Butter Photobooth enough!! Our guests LOVED the booth and had such a great time in it throughout our wedding. They were incredibly detail and customer care oriented. Chris responded to my emails and questions within minutes and were so generous and accommodating. We would be thrilled to work with them again in the future. The prop box that we had was such a blast and we made sure to get duplicates of everything to put in our guestbook and use as favors. We will forever be indebted to Chris’ kindness and hospitality.” – CASS AND GUSS
“While planning Enterprize Canada’s First Year Mix & Mingle, we were set on making the event more than just the average meet and greet. Luckily, when approached Butter Photobooth about sponsoring our event and organization, they were excited about the opportunity and connected with our cause. Chris was a phenomenally flexible and supportive partner throughout the process. Some students were even drawn to the event specifically for the photobooth! They had a blast with the props and I can confidently say that Butter Photobooth added plenty of energy and hype to our event. It was a pleasure working with Chris and I highly recommend Butter Photobooth for any event!” – JOCELYN for Enterprize Canada
