Bini's experience and professionalism was obvious through her thorough work before the wedding to scope out the area, get a clear idea of how the wedding day was going to happen, and a few update meetings prior to the event.

On the day of the wedding, her skills and experience again were obvious in her omnipresence throughout the event (9am-11pm!!), keeping everything on schedule while capturing great moments and setups of different groups of guests.

After the event, she was very fast to release a number of photos and progressively all the photos taken. A souvenir album was also made in time (we did not even know how we'd choose photos for the book!).

Her flexibility on the full-feature package was greatly appreciated, accommodating our budget while getting the features we wanted.
She's also one of the rare photographers we talked to that gave us full access rights to all our photos after the event to distribute to our guests or do whatever we wanted with them.
She worked very well with the videographer and other crew on the day for everyone to do their job effectively.

Bini certainly made a huge difference in the planning, smooth operation and memories preservation of this wedding!

Thank you for everything!!!

I could not have asked for a better photographer, she was professional, friendly, welcoming to all of our guests and above all managed to capture the 'emotion' of our day in her photographs. I have never been to a wedding where the photographer seemed to know everybody's names and was confidently directing people and had the guests laughing & smiling. The comments we had following our wedding were all about how wonderful our photographer was!! Bini spent so much time on our photos and photo book and nothing was too much trouble for her. I just loved the way the photobook was put together, it perfectly told the story of our day and she selected photos to complement one another. Bini went above and beyond her role as photographer, she kept our day running smoothly and i honestly dont know what i would have done without her. We now have the wonderful memories captured in her photos & photobook to remember our perfect day.

Bini was spectacular for shooting photos at our wedding. She was in all the right spots at the right times and got fabulous photos. The value we received with our wedding package was amazing - both the quality of our pictures and the quantity of pictures received. Bini's energy and excitement created a lot of awesome photos. Bini was extremely approachable and answered all our questions and took every photo shot that we wanted. With our package we received: a meeting with Bini prior to the wedding to discuss our preferences, hours with Bini at multiple locations on our wedding day, a look book of all the photos taken, an online gallery of all the photos, a disk of all digital photos and a beautiful 16x24 print. We have received nothing but compliments and positive feedback from friends and family and without hesitation we would recommend Bini to anyone looking to have gorgeous photos taken on their wedding day or any special event!

My partner and I was planning to have a civil wedding in Vancouver Canada. Finding a photographer that we will both be comfortable with is a daunting task on its own. This is also made worst by the fact that we were planning our wedding from overseas. We found Bini's website online by chance and after several emails with Bini and a few Skype calls, we were so comfortable with Bini that we decide to engage her service. In between, we had to make changes and ended up delaying the wedding for over 8 months. Bini was never pushy but kept us in her thoughts as our new wedding date drew near.

Our wedding photography happened as planned on the new date and Bini went above and beyond her way to make us feel comfortable, meeting us before the wedding to get acquainted and after to deliver the photos to us personally. Her bubbly and lovely personality just made us feel so comfortable. Not only did she take some of the best photographs during and after our wedding, she has become a dear friend through this process.

Our photos also garners rave reviews from our many family members.

I would highly recommend Bini service and would encourage anyone who is looking for a great photographer and a great person to work with to consider her.

Bini was fantastic. She got every shot we wanted, and was amazing at crowd control which is crucial for getting those shots on such a busy and stressful day.

The photobooth she set up at our wedding was a wonderful addition to the atmosphere! Our guests loved the props and had a blast with it. Made for some memorable images.

Bini nailed the style I wanted; from locations to actual types of images to the way I wanted the pictures to "feel". She was super flexible, made me feel valued and more often than not came to us instead of us having to travel to her. Great sense of humor and great work. I love my wedding album! And the price was one to beat!

I wanted a mix of traditional posed shots as well as a lot of candid shots of our wedding. Bini was so good at really getting a sense of what we wanted. She was able to get some very creative shots, especially when we didn't even know she was taking pictures. My friends and family are still raving about the photo book! I felt like Bini really took the time, having consultations with us, prompt email feedback, etc, which made me feel at ease when it came to wedding day. Can't wait to work with you in the future Bini. Maybe when we have babies?!

We knew we had made the right decision back then when we hired "Bini Ball, MagnaVita Photography" as our wedding photographer and even more so now. Her hardwork and attention to details on our big day made it stress-free and just simply magical. Bini is truly wonderful and have a real gift! We received so many compliments on our photos/album from our family and friends.

Once again, Thank you so much Bini from the bottom of our hearts!
