Catchlight wedding planning tips
(i) Plan Ahead: Initiate your wedding preparations well in advance. Venues, vendors, and services tend to be in high demand, especially during peak wedding seasons. Starting your planning early not only provides you with more options but also minimizes stress as your wedding day approaches. Book 10-12 months in advance this will help you secure your special date.
(ii) Budget Wisely: Establish a practical budget before making significant choices. Take into account all aspects, such as venue, catering, attire, decorations, wedding rings, photography and videography, and more. Sticking to your budget empowers you to prioritize effectively and steer clear of overspending. Benefit from potential discounts, referrals, or complimentary services offered by vendors.
(iii) Stay Organized: Keep meticulous track of all details using a wedding planning checklist, digital tools, or a physical organizer. Organize your timeline, contracts, and to-do lists meticulously to prevent any potential oversight. Staying organized guarantees that every element falls seamlessly into place.
(i) Planning Your Perfect Winter Wedding:
To make sure your winter wedding goes smoothly, book your venue well ahead of time. This is important because winter is a busy season for work parties, Christmas events, corporate events, and winter parties and celebrations. When you pick your ideal place, focus on indoor spots that can be kept warm despite the cold weather. Look for places with big windows that show off nice views, or check out old mansions that have a timeless charm. You can also go for cozy lodges that feel warm and comfortable. Make modern event places look like magical winter wonderlands with nice decorations. Make sure the venue has a plan in case the weather gets bad and has well-lit spots indoors for good pictures. Use lighting that fits the cozy feeling of winter, and choose a place that fits your decorations. Keep your guests in mind by making sure they can get around easily and that the place fits everyone comfortably. Most importantly, let your chosen venue give your wedding a warm and magical feeling that your loved ones will never forget.
(ii) Winter Savings:
Winter weddings can save you money because fewer people are getting married during this time. This means that the prices for things like the venue and other services can be more affordable.
The Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish is like a dreamy spot for weddings. It's high up in the mountains, and the snowy background adds to the magic.

You're surrounded by fresh mountain air, and you can almost touch the stars. It's the perfect place to celebrate your love with your favorite people.
The Sea to Sky Gondola doesn't just care about weddings; they care about the environment too.

Testimonials and Reviews
Absolutely amazing professionalism and talent! Our wedding photos turned out incredibly well and we could not be more happy about our video. Keith and Yang were very helpful through the entire process and produced excellent work. Trusting someone with your wedding photos/video is scary but we were so pleased with the products. Cannot recommend enough! Wish we had them a little earlier to take photos of me (the bride) because the guys photos turned out so well. Thank you both again so much!!
Olivia & Gage
CatchLight were very professional and very easy to work with. They made us fell comfortable, especially as my fiancé and I are not the most comfortable having our picture taken in general. Best part about them is that they took the time to get to know us personally, which reflected better in the photos they took.
Engagement photos turned out amazing and we look forward to working with them at our wedding and any other future events. Highly recommend!
Allison & Chris

Alyssa & Glenn
They really know how to capture the perfect moment of our family! Keith or the boys “uncle Keith” was awesome, we are very comfortable with him ,very natural (no need to act more😅) they’re amazing, so professional and friendly and the patience (for the kids) is to nth level and the outcome is spectacular! We really appreciate all the efforts and we can’t wait to book our family session again. Thank you and see you soon!
Astraea & Family
Super professional. We hired Keith for two separate shoots and will go back again. We caught bad weather on our first shoot and Keith somehow had the pictures turn out amazing. We took pictures with a fussy new born for our second shoot and again Keith somehow found a way to turn every picture into gold. He had our pictures edited and up for us within a couple days. I recommend him to all my friends and family.
Victoria & Sacha
Really appreciated Keith's insight and ideas for the photos. Very professional and quality experience. Turn around for the final photos did not disappoint!
Tina & Jonathan
Keith was a pleasure to work with and made our experience as comfortable as possible. My partner and I are expecting our first child and are naturally camera shy but wanted to commemorate this time in our lives. Keith chose a beautiful natural location and guided us through natural poses and shots. He spent a lot of extra time with us and you can tell this is a passion for him. We will definitely use his services again for the next milestones to come!
Caroline & Kerse
We had a wonderful experience with Keith. We did one of their mini photography sessions and we were so happy with our family photos. It takes a special person to get great photos of a 1.5 year old.
Amanda & Family
We had a wonderful family photoshoot around Deer Lake with Keith and Yang! We brought our golden retriever and they were so patient and accommodating to capture the shot! I love how the team arrived early and scoped out some really gorgeous locations for us. We had so many photos to choose from and the results were very natural and exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for the memories!
