I met Andrew in college, and have been privileged to watch his photography business, Andrew Lukianiuk Photography, grow and expand over the years. He and I have worked weddings together several times now, and he's always fantastic to work with. His photography is excellent, and I would definitely recommend checking out what he has to offer. Feel free to read the following blog post to learn more about this talented photographer.
Who are you? My name is Andrew Lukianiuk (yes, try and pronounce that last name..it's ok, I've heard all kinds of versions!) and I am a Portrait and Wedding Photographer based here in Metro Vancouver.
Why did you start doing weddings? I started photographing weddings because a former schoolmate of mine was getting married, and asked if I had ever photographed a wedding before. I said "no", but was willing to give it a try! Fast forward a few months to the wedding, and it was a blast! I had SO much fun, I told myself in the car on the way home that I'd love to do this for the rest of my life! And here I am four years later, loving it more than ever!
What is your favourite part of working in the wedding industry? My favourite part about working in this crazy busy industry is all of the people I've met and shared life with. I love documenting moments as it happens, and meeting all these couples and their awesome families is always the highlight of the job!
Any advice for brides and grooms who are currently planning their wedding? My best advice to brides and grooms currently planning their wedding: Prioritize. There are vendors everywhere who can do their part and want to be a part of your wedding day, Decide what's best and most important to you, venues, photographer, catering, and go from there. And most of all, remember that the wedding is not about the things you see, but the moments captured and family and friends who are there to celebrate with you. Enjoy the process!
A random fact (or two) about yourself. You may not know this, but I am an Australian citizen as well as Canadian, love mango, and play a number of instruments. Who knows, maybe I'll pass my camera off to a second photographer and sit down and play with your wedding band for a song or two! Also, watch out for my crazy faces!
