Some of the nice things people have to say about Neil Slattery
“While looking for a wedding photographer we came across Neil Slattery, we were immediately blown away by what we saw and didn't hesitate to hire Neil as our photographer. It was one of the best decisions we made, only second to saying I do! Neil went above and beyond, he traveled (with Ragi, the amazing second photographer) from Kelowna to Vancouver the day before the wedding and spent much of that day touring our venues in order to plan the perfect shots and to ensure that the day ran as smoothly as possible. On the big day Neil arrived bright and early to begin shooting, he tirelessly worked throughout the day and well into the evening, following the specifics that I had requested, but also giving his (much appreciated) advice. The final product was nothing short of jaw dropping. The photographs that Neil took looked as though they were out of a gorgeous bridal magazine, Neil was able to capture every special moment of the day without being intrusive. The photos were even more magical than I had pictured in my mind. I plan to hire Neil again for all future events, as will everyone that attended my wedding. Neil made my dream wedding a reality, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who would like the most important moments of their lives captured in the most exquisite way possible. Thank you so much Neil!!"
“My husband, Luke, and I were so happy with our decision to hire Neil as our wedding photographer. He is such a pro! He came to the venue the day before to get himself familiar with the surroundings, and he made a great effort to understand what types of moments we wanted photo memories of. Both Luke and I are a bit camera shy, but Neil got us laughing and having fun, and the photo shoot was a highlight of our day.
Neil was quick to get us the edited photos, and the results were beautiful. His photos captured all the feelings of happiness, friendship and love that our day was made of."
“Neil is an amazing photographer!!! We are in love with his clean, natural looking photography! He's able to capture moments so well and we love every single photo he captured from our wedding. He's based out of Kelowna but we hired him to photograph our wedding in Golden. Because he hadn't taken pictures at our venue before he travelled there on his own time, without charging, to check out the area and find amazing locations for taking pictures. Neil goes above and beyond for his clients, and his photos are stunning. I cannot believe the amount of amazing pictures we received. It allows us to relive the day so well! We 100% recommend him! And it won't be the last time he takes pictures for us, that's for sure!"
“We hired Neil as our wedding photographer and are so glad that we did. Neil is a true professional and is so creative. Neil went above and beyond. For example, he drove to Naramata in advance to check out various places that would work for our wedding party photos, taking into account the time of day (lighting) and our request to have photos done at Deep Roots Vineyard. Neil offered to and did attend our wedding rehearsal (a 1+ hr drive one-way)! Given the amount of forethought that Neil put into preparing for our wedding day, it was no surprise to us when he produced such a spectacular final product. Neil, with the assistance of Jamie, captured our wedding so beautifully. We have so many photos and we are happy with them all. We were also very impressed with how quickly we received the final product, which included personalized thank you cards and a pretty USB containing hundreds of photos. We recommend Neil without reservation, and will use him again should we need a photographer. Thanks Neil!!!"
“Neil is an amazing photographer. He traveled to Italy for our wedding in Florence. We were on a tight schedule, but wanted a Life-Style session as well as our wedding, and he went beyond our expectations. He worked the whole time he was there. He captured amazing shots for our engagement and wedding photos. Such a passionate and talented photographer!”
“Neil did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I have to say without a doubt every single image I received from him is absolutely beautiful. He has an amazing sense of lighting and getting the right moments between people. I am so pleased with all of our images. I just can’t say enough. Being a photographer myself his work is incredible and he doesn’t charge as much as he certainly could for the quality of his work. It was affordable and amazingly beautiful. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and be around and he works very hard. I’m a perfectionist myself so I can see that in others…Neil is definitely trying to get that perfect shot every time. I’d definitely hire him all over again. People went crazy for our wedding photos. He is organized and really on top of everything, he has so much experience, you can’t go wrong with Neil.”
“When we were looking for our wedding photographer and came across Neil’s website we knew we loved his photography but had no idea how much we would love the photos he took for us. Neil has the day-of down to a science, has an amazing eye, gives great direction and we felt relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera all day. I couldn’t ask for a better way to relive that amazing day through all of the beautiful photos he captured.”
“We came across Neil’s work during the massive task of finding a photographer for our wedding. From the moment we initially met Neil to see if he would be a good fit, he was incredibly generous and very professional. It was very apparent to us that he wasn’t just another person with a camera, masquerading as a photographer. His experience, eye for detail and our preference for his final products ultimately sold us on choosing him as our photographer. Neil was amazingly helpful with finding locations for our engagement session as well as our wedding day photography (we live eight hours away in Calgary!). He is incredibly skilled at interpreting the environment and surroundings and always seemed to have a vision of what he wanted to capture. That being said, he was flexible when it came to unplanned situations and was able to roll with the punches, which we really appreciated! Neil was incredibly accommodating, and put up with all our ridiculous quirks and requests. His team members were also fantastic, friendly and a pleasure to be around. Neil and his team were also outstanding working with our videographers from Vancouver. Even they commented on his professionalism and skill! Neil works insanely hard to produce amazing results in a very timely fashion. We, along with all our family and friends, absolutely love the images he has captured and produced for us. Neil, thank you so much for all your hard work and for capturing our special day!”
“If you are even considering Neil as a photographer, then there is no need to search any longer!
He was our photographer for our 2014 wedding in Kelowna and we were blown away. We are not from the area so I was a little nervous hiring a photographer that I had never met before. To say the least, Neil exceeded all of our expectations! His direction and skill is one thing, but his unique artistic ability is another. From the very beginning he was very personable and a delight to work with. He captured every moment perfectly and took the time to shoot things that I would have never thought were important until afterwards. He made us feel at ease throughout the whole day including the bridal boudoir, the fun poses, and the intimate moments. He arrived first thing in the morning and didn’t leave until it was over. My husband and I were overly thrilled with every photo we received from Neil. I would hire Neil again in a heartbeat!”
“Neil photographed our wedding two years ago in Kelowna. Like everything else in our wedding planning, we spent a lot of time researching photographers. Neil's portfolio really resonated with us - we loved his artistic style and approach to photographing weddings.
The first time we met with Neil, we knew right away he was the right choice for us - he made us feel at ease and well guided, while making us feel in control of our wedding day.
Neil travelled to Vancouver to shoot engagement photos for us in our neighbourhood. He was very accommodating and easy to work with.
Back in Kelowna during the weeks leading up to the big day, Neil scouted out the wedding venue and some shoot locations.
On the wedding day, everything went smoothly and Neil worked really hard, capturing amazing photos, both posed and candid. We were very happy with the results and enjoyed sharing them with our family and friends. We would highly recommend Neil to anyone looking for a friendly, professional, and dedicated wedding photographer."
“Neil… I don’t know where to start. First of all I want to thank you with all of my heart for capturing so many beautiful moments during our wedding. Thank you for all your incredible work! The passion you have for photography shows through every single photo. You have an unbelievable talent each and every one of these photos shows that! The photos are UNBELIEVABLE. I received them yesterday and cannot stop looking through them. I stayed up until midnight last night because I just could not stop looking at this fairy-tale wedding that couldn’t possibly be ours! Gorgeous! They are just absolutely breath-taking! You have captured so many moments that make me relive every second of the best day of our lives! Thank you so much!”
“Neil is an awesome photographer!! He did both our engagement and wedding photos in Kelowna. He knew just the right places to take us with the perfect lighting and background. We received hundreds of gorgeous edited photos and continue to receive compliments on our awesome photographer. Neil is not only a great photographer, he kept our entire wedding day organized from start to finish. I would highly recommend Neil as your photographer for any occasion!”
“Amazing! its the only way to describe our experience with Neil. He shot our engagement photos and we were really impressed. First Neil took the time to learn about us and what we were looking for and he really captured that. We shot at four different locations and had a ton of fun the whole time. We would definitely recommend Neil to anyone looking for a great Photographer.
Thanks again Neil!"

“My husband and I had Neil photograph our wedding in July 2015 and we couldn’t have been more impressed. We got every photo we wanted, plus some extra. I love that Neil not only took posed photos, but also captured many many candid shots throughout the day and evening. We also rented the photo booth from Neil, and our guests LOVED it. It was a great time and we have hundreds of photos to show for it.”
“Neil stepped in at the last minute (3 days before my wedding) when our other photographer cancelled and I am so glad it all happened the way it did. Our wedding photos are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and honestly we just couldn’t be happier. Makes me want to have our wedding over again each year just so we can get more photos.”
“Neil was our awesome wedding photographer. He was an absolute pleasure to work with! It’s easy to feel a little nervous and self conscious in front of the camera, but his personable and easy going personality along with his sense of humour really helped to make us feel more comfortable. Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out amazing!! Everyone I’ve shown our photos to so far has commented on how great of a photographer he is. I have two girlfriends who are engaged and both of them are interested in hiring him as their photographer from having met him at the wedding…and of course from seeing his great work. He got along well with all our friends and family, and he captured all the memorable moments of our big day…without us having to spend an arm and a leg that some of the other photographers were asking for. I did my research before carefully selecting Neil, and we were very pleased with our decision as well as the outcome of our special day! Thanks Neil, you were awesome! :-)”
“I booked Neil for my wedding on June 29, 2013 and he was a pro from start to finish. We didn’t have timing (our fault, not his) to do an engagement session so Neil had his work cut out for him having never photographed us. You would never know it! He was so professional, so knowledgeable, so precise… we were EXACTLY on time for everything on the day of thanks to him. We have recommended him to everyone we know and I hope we have a reason to hire him again because he really was THAT GREAT! We are so blessed to now be able to look back at every photograph to remember what a wonderful day we had.”
“James and I got married in Kelowna and had Neil do our pictures. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. He was taking pictures right from us getting ready until the party was well underway at the reception, he literally captured every moment of our special day. Which is super because the day itself flew by so fast for us, it is really nice to be able to go back and see all those moments, and lots of moments we didnt know happened! Neil is a great photographer, he has an eye for capturing amazing shots. All our shots are amazing! And he take LOTS of pictures! I plan on having him take pictures in the future and highly highly recommend him!”
“Our experience was a little different as we eloped to Kelowna with our 2 year old daughter. We didn’t have the getting ready or the reception, like a traditional wedding. Neil offered us a great rate and a slightly different package as we were wanting the ceremony photographed as well as some nice family shots. I was also pregnant at the time so it doubled as a maternity shoot. Neil was professional as was his assistant, he showed up on time and really delivered what we wanted. We felt at ease with him and like he knew exactly what he was doing. My husband is a photographer himself so he is usually a little more critical about these things but he was VERY satisfied. Our photos were great and we are so over the moon with the way Neil captured our special day. Thank you Neil for a great experience and beautiful photos that will be plastered over all our walls :)”
“Neil Slattery is an amazing photographer! My comments do not do justice to his work. My husband and I were very impressed with Neil. He is very professional and makes everyone feel very comfortable. He ensures that all the “necessary” photos are taken and are beautiful, and in addition takes spectacular shots that you would never expect. I love to look at our wedding photos and the wonderful memories of the day that Neil captured. I highly recommend Neil and would hire him again without hesitation. You will not be disappointed if you hire Neil Slattery Photography.”
"This review is long overdue but still well deserved. Neil was the photographer of choice for my fiance' after searching the Kelowna market for the best one that would work well with us from a distance. He did not disappoint! Throughout the planning process and right up until we arrived in Kelowna for the wedding he was always responsive and helpful. He joined us for a walk through and rehearsals at our venue the day before and guided us through the plan for the day of. The morning of the wedding the sky darkened and the rain clouds rolled in. Undaunted Neil set up our "first look" shots on the roof of the hotel we were staying and indulged our goofiness with some "run away" groom pics afterwards and got them all in before the deluge started. The outdoor ceremony was a wet one but despite that Neil and his assistant managed to get some absolutely amazing shots of it all from multiple angles leaving us with some of the best memories of our big day. Thank you again Neil for a fantastic job on our wedding photos and helping preserve the memories of that great day! We would highly recommend Neil Slattery to anyone looking for a professional, competent, and skilled photographer!"
