"At our wedding, it felt like Sachin pulled a rabbit out of his hat again and again. Photo after photo not only told the story of the day, not only captured the expressions that are genuine to the people in them, but did so in an unexpected and visually beautiful way that makes them stand out as photographs in and of themselves.
Sachin captured the emotions we felt and the story of us, all in his distinct style. Photo after photo blew us away with emotion, humour, and beauty.
We looked at a lot of Vancouver photographers’ portfolios before our wedding but we only needed to interview one. And our wedding was far better for having included him."

Sachin Khona is an award winning Vancouver Wedding Photographer, servicing the local area of Vancouver, British Columbia and surrounding areas, documenting weddings across Canada and worldwide.
Sachin specializes in capturing artistic and authentic moments of joy with creative portraits producing a storytelling wedding photography style that conveys real love, genuine emotions and unspoken moments between couples.
Based at home in the Pacific Northwest, Sachin is available for local Vancouver weddings & international wedding photography and assignments - whether it’s on a mountain top, in the city, by the coast or overseas.
I believe your wedding deserves to be captured in a candid & unobtrusive way with a creative style.
Authentic and emotive documentation of your wedding day or elopement is my passion.
The kind that sweeps your heart & mind back to the moment.
Pricing for wedding photography varies depending on the type of day you choose to have. I have documented everything from elopements with just the two of you on top of a mountain, small backyard celebrations with just your immediate family, to multi day wedding celebrations with all kinds of customs and traditions.
I love documenting love in all its forms and pre wedding shoots or storytelling engagement sessions are also available. Telling your story is at the heart of what I love to do and I'm honoured you're considering including me in your moments.
I'm grateful to all of my couples and clients, past and present, for giving this London boy an opportunity to live his dreams with a camera. Words will never be able to express truly how I feel but I hope that when we meet, you can feel my passion and enthusiasm for this craft. It's been the greatest gift to me and I love sharing it with others.

Sachin is the best. Seriously, the best. Not only did he make our elopement extra special and comfortable for us AND take amazing, memorable photos of our special day, but also just was really to nice to us, warm, respectful, honest and dear to us as his clients...
Beyond the expected, he also helped us find a location based on our interests as Americans who had never visited Vancouver before. He did this with us all in the span of about two weeks and never asked anything of us for these extra services. We would certainly give him six stars if google allowed... You’d be blessed to work with Sachin!!
• What is your photography style?
My photography style is all about honesty and organic moments. I believe in capturing the real emotions and candid moments of your wedding day, without any forced poses or cheesy cheesiness. Think of me as your creative wing-person, here to document your day just as it unfolds.
• Can we see a portfolio of your previous work?
Absolutely! Dig around my website to see my portfolio and get a taste of my honest and organic approach to wedding photography. You can also request via email any full weddings and slideshows.
• How many photos do we typically receive after the wedding?
You can expect to receive around 500-800 edited and high-resolution images from me, depending on the length of coverage and the type of event. I like to deliver a well-rounded collection that tells the story of your day, without overwhelming you with too many images. Want a few rolls of analogue film (35mm) documentation? I can add that into the coverage too.
• How long does it take to receive the final images?
You can expect to receive your final images within 6-8 weeks after the wedding day. Trust me, it's worth the wait! I always deliver a preview of images within a few days of the wedding too.
• Do you have liability insurance?
Yes, I carry liability insurance for your peace of mind.
• We're not comfortable posing for photos, what's your approach?
Don't worry, you're not alone! Many couples feel awkward in front of the camera, but that's where my honest and organic approach comes in. I believe in capturing real, raw emotions and moments as they happen naturally. So, no need to force any poses or fake a smile. Just be yourselves, enjoy each other's company, and let the magic unfold. I'll be there to document it all.
• How do you handle touch-ups and edits to the photos?
I carefully edit and retouch each image to deliver the best possible results. This includes color correction, exposure adjustment, and other necessary edits. I want you to look your best in every photo and offer the same quality as you see on my site.
• What is the process for ordering prints and albums?
After you receive your final images, you can order prints and albums directly through me. I offer a variety of printing options and high-quality albums to choose from. Your guests can also order their own prints through the gallery too.
• Do you have a second shooter option?
Yes, I offer an associate shooter option to ensure that every moment of your special day is captured. This is worth considering if you are getting ready in different locations in the morning (far from each other) or you have over 100 guests and want extra coverage of the day.
• How far in advance should we book you?
I'm currently booking weddings into 2024 (up to 2 years in advance) and require a 50% retainer plus a signed contract to secure your day.

"In a market that seems to be plagued with similarity, Sachin's images are truly forms of art. His eye for composition and lighting allows him to create stunning images that not only capture raw, human connections during some of the most defining moments of his clients' lives, but will stand the test of time as photographs.
What isn't apparent from his images is the man behind the lens. Sachin is kind, approachable, energetic and gracious. He was an absolute delight to work with and I strongly recommend his services. Not only will you be working with an incredible photographer, but also a wonderful person.
Thank you, Sachin" - Jessica B.
