Whitney Lane Arnett fell in love with photography during her travels. Kel fell in love with her and became motivated to take up photography for the simple reason of just wanting to spend more time with Whitney on weekends, who was second shooting for weddings at the time. They realized that they have a great chemistry and now work together as a husband-wife team running their own photography business in Deep Cove for the last year and a half.

A Few Words With Whitney…

Whitney Lane Photography What do you have to offer for brides with lower budgets?
“I was a budget bride so I know exactly how that feels. I couldn’t afford to have my photographer stay for the reception and I wish I had images of all those details that I worked so hard on. I treat every wedding as luxe and make sure that the entire story of your wedding day has been documented.”

What sets you apart from others in the same field?
“I tend to not look to other wedding photographers solely for my inspiration. Instead I follow the trends of fashion and commercial photography, taking poses and ideas from Vanity Fair, and Vogue. This tends to make each wedding feel editorial and unique. I want every bride to feel that her image should be in a magazine.”

Whitney Lane Photography How would you describe your shooting and photo editing style?
“I lean more towards editorial photography. This means I document the day the way it might be layed out in a magazine or a featured spread. I shoot crisp images in complimentary light and angle photos for the most editorial appeal. I prefer clean, light, and airy photos with minimal processing. I do use Photoshop, but I prefer photos to have a timeless appeal, and I’ve discovered that photos with a less-is-more aesthetic stand the test of time and have a classic appeal to them.”

What do you enjoy most about your job?
“I love that every day is completely unique. The story, the people, the details they all inspire me in a completely unique way each time I go to shoot a wedding. I find I get very personally invested in my bride and grooms as well as their families which adds an emotional element to my images, because by the end of the day I really care about them all.”

What was the most creative shot you took and how did you come up with it?
“We were shooting at a wedding venue with an amazing restaurant above it. It was closed for the night but we were able to get permission to use the space for a late night bridal party picture. Channeling some Vanity Fair group posing and using the lights in the room to our advantage we were able to get a moody editorial bridal party photo which is one of my favourite all time images.”

Which part of the wedding is your most favourite to shoot and why?
“I love bride and groom portraits. It gives me the opportunity to express my creativity the most. It also gives the bride and groom time to relax with each other and to have fun reveling in the fact of being a newly married couple.”

Whitney Lane Photography Where is your favourite place/part of the city to take pictures for a shoot?
“I love Vancouver for its diversity. There is no end to amazing locations here for photoshoots. I tend to love soft golden light the most so anytime I have the chance to shoot on the beach or in a field around Vancouver I feel like I’ve been given a gift.”

If you had one piece of advice for a bride and groom, what would it be?
“Delegate so that you can really take in the beauty of the day. Make sure you schedule enough time to have some quiet moments with each other (possibly while we are doing portraits) so that you can really reflect on how amazing it is to be in love and to have such a beautiful day dedicated to that love.”
