Butter Weddings was originally founded by Gina Chong and known as Butter Media (photography and web/media design) in 2004, the company evolved into Butter Weddings with Chris Chong joining the company in 2007. Since then, we have brought a new structure to the company and we now have Butter Weddings Photography, Cinematography and Photo Booth rentals! By continuing to provide the best service possible and our Timeless, Fresh and Modern style to capturing our clients’ memories, Butter Weddings was the proud recipient of the 2013 Small Business of the Year Award at the Business Excellence Awards in February 2014. This is just one example of our dedication to our craft, community and clients.
Headquarters for Butter Weddings is a 2000 sq ft. space located on “Brewer’s Row,” the heart of Port Moody – complete with a full size studio on the main floor and a lifestyle studio on the second floor. I want to give you the bottom line on how we shoot. We shoot for our clients. Some might think that’s pretty obvious for a photography studio; however, we take pride in truly walking the walk. For every wedding, we know it is important to get amazing photos of our couples. However, it is equally important to capture the moments that happen throughout the big day! Not to mention our couples being able to look back one day and also see great images of their friends and family that were in attendance. How about all the wonderful details that resulted from months (sometimes years) of planning?
We are mostly known for our wedding and event portfolio, but our photography team also offers services in other areas including Portrait and Commercial Photography. Regardless of the type of photo shoot, we take pride in our work and offer creativity backed by fantastic client service and superb professionalism.
Our success means something only if we are able to share it with our involvement in the community. Gina and Chris have noticed a gap in certain areas in the photography and also the small business worlds. We are taking small steady steps in addressing these gaps and this is incorporated in our long term vision. Butter Weddings is a co-founder of Ultimate Shootouts Vancouver – a group of experienced photographers dedicated to increasing accessibility and portfolio development for junior wedding photographers. We have also sponsored multiple charities, non-profit events, and university events that are dedicated to youth entrepreneurship and women in the business world.
Whether it is at a wedding or an event, we are looking forward to seeing you!
