I can't rave enough about Fran. Leading up to my wedding I was ambivalent about cost of a photographer given our tight budget, but I felt like it was an important thing so I started looking around. I talked to quite a few photographers and felt a bit lost choosing which one but then I came across Fran's website and I was very impressed. I got in touch with her and after we meet I felt confident that I had found a great person to shoot our wedding... and man, was I ever right! Fran totally exceeded any expectations I had. On the day she was FANTASTIC. She was so grounded and energetic and made my husband and I feel like natural models (which we are not!). She did an amazing job of organizing our wedding party and family for the various shots (she was quick!), and I can't thank her enough for telling us about the 'first look' option, it was the best thing for us.
My only regret was that I didn't hire Fran to stay the whole night! If she is available to shoot your wedding book her while you can!

Update: So I wrote that review before I even saw my pictures... now that I have my pictures I am even more impressed and OVER THE MOON in love with Fran and her work. Her shots are amazing -and there are SO many of them! She captured all the special moments... moments we didn't even know were special at the time. I feel so thankful to have found Fran and am so thankful that I have such an amazing documentation of the day. All our family and friends go crazy every time they see the pictures... Fran is truly truly talented and clearly loves what she does. Your lucky if you get her!!

We could not have asked for a better photographer than Fran. Once we saw her website no one else compared. We contacted her to see who she might recommend, never expecting her to travel out of province to photograph our wedding. We received the digital prints and cannot stop looking at them. Everyone we show them to is amazed by them. They were by far the best investment from our wedding. They are a beautiful reminder of a wonderful day, and Fran captured everything from the details to the emotions with amazing talent and unsurpassed originality. We would absolutely and 100% recommend her to everyone.

We were thrilled with our photos and have received so many compliments from family and friends. We actually booked her before meeting her in person, as we were pressed for time and really liked her work. She was able to work within our budget and made the process extremely easy. She was a pleasure to work with on both our engagement and wedding shoots, as we were nervous and a bit awkward at first, not having had professional photos taken before! Her second shooter was another professional photographer in the industry, which was a nice touch. Overall, we were very happy with our photos and experience and can't wait to get an album made for our first anniversary!

Fran was an amazing photographer, her pictures will allow us to relive our special day forever. If I could do it all over again, I would still pick Fran to be our photographer, she was so much fun and fit in like one of the family.
The only reason why I didn't give her a 5 out of 5 is because it took longer than expected to get our pictures back. But we understood that she had a lot going on.
Thanks a million:)

Oh and the photos are AMAZING!!!!

Fran was an absolutely amazing photographer and so much fun to work with. My husband and I are a little camera shy and didn't know what to expect, but Fran's professionalism, experience and fun personality made taking photos so easy and we were able to get stunning results because of it! We loved Fran's work so much that we had her take our engagement photos, wedding photos and "trash the dress" photos, and we could not be happier with the outcome! Fran also has an incredible eye for detail and helped me to get a unique guest book filled with engagement photos and a beautiful picture of my husband and I printed on canvas that welcomed our guests into our reception and now hangs in our living room reminding us of the happiest day of our lives! I would absolutely recommend Fran and her photography to everyone! It is easy to get caught up in the stress of the wedding, but with Fran we could not stop smiling and laughing the whole way through! We cannot wait to work with Fran again in the future to capture more of our special moments! xoxoxoxo

Fran was amazing to work with! She made us feel so relaxed in front of the camera on our engagement shoot that we were really looking forward to taking photos on our wedding day. Fran has an unbelievable artistic side and her photographs reflected that. Her end product for us went above and beyond our expectations. We proudly have recommended her to all of our close friends and family for weddings, portraits and engagement shoots. We couldn't have been happier with the services she provided us.

My wife and I had the unique opportunity of being Fran's first clients in Vancouver for a wedding shoot. Yes we were rolling the dice a little, but we fully trusted Fran after our initial meeting (in fact we opted to hire Fran over another photographer with an extensive portfolio). Fran greatly exceeded our expectations, both for her quality of her work and our enjoyment in having her share in our wedding day. Since that day I have strongly encouraged many friends and colleagues to work with Fran, many of which have employed her with great satisfaction.

Two years ago I also hired Fran to do some corporate head shots for my private investment practice. In true Fran Chelico style she juggled her schedule to accomodate me on short notice, and I am very pleased with the outcome.

I understand the Fran has taken her craft to a higher level now, and is utilizing the highest quality camera's and equipment. I am overdue for new corporate photo's so I will be seeing Fran in the near future.

I highly Recommend Fran.
