About
Jody Wiger Photography

Jody Wiger is a Vancouver BC Photographer and proud Mom of these two girls. Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography using analog film and digital to capture her clients with style, virtue, and beauty.

Shooting, for me, is more about the overall picture. I’m drawn to lights, shapes and patterns; those things that give an image texture and depth. By adding in my subjects, I’m then able to fixate on the moment shared between them. The moment would have been beautiful on its own, but by carving a scene, the result is emotion merged with the world around them.

I have been a Wedding and Family photographer for 10 years. I started my business on Vancouver Island in Victoria BC. My family and I moved to the mainland in 2014. At that time I started using old school film along side my digital photography.

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m a planner, by nature. This means I love meeting with my clients and getting to know them on a personal level. I actually believe this is crucial in creating portraits that truly reflect the couple or family booking their session. How you met… your favorite music… your dreams for the future. After spending time with you, I can sketch and plan out key shots that remind me of something we talked about while together. And really, when it is wrong to try and make new friends to boot? We can hang in a favorite coffee shop or meet up for a fun dinner; the point is to just relax and talk. The end result are pictures that showcase you more than me.

FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

Before I jump into why I shoot film… I want to clarify what “film” is, since I’ve had more than a few people be unsure, and it’s not a silly question. When I say “I shoot with film”, I’m not referring to using a video camera to capture audio and moving visual… I leave that to the videographer. I’m talking about taking a roll of photographic film that you load into a camera and have developed.

SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER

I found my second photographer by a happy accident online. Three years ago, I needed to find a male second shooter for a Indian wedding. I saw a friends family session online down in fine art film and the photographer was Jon Wong from Vancouver, BC. I looked online and thought I found his website and sent him an email, hoping that he was interested in working for me as a second photographer. In a funny turn of events, he wasn’t the photographer that took my friends family photographs but was willing to second shoot this wedding with me.

Jon’s photography portfolio was this incredible portfolio of street and documentary photography. I was captivated by his composition and storytelling. He is a true master at candids.

Jon’s talents complete my wedding photography business by giving my clients a whole collection of wedding photographs unlike anyone else.
