calgary family photographer & filmmaker
We tend to think that we have all the time in the world, but TIME is a THIEF.

Your children will be off to school, then college sooner than you think. Capture the way your kids love you, the way your partner laughs with all their heart, they way those tiny hands grab your face before giving you a big, sweet kiss.

Remember what these days and years felt like, save every moment through photos and beautiful, cinematic films.

01. I want to book your cinematic movie coverage and also have a candid home or outdoor photographs, can I did this?

Awesome, and yes. Many clients love this experience as they get the best of both worlds. They receive a cinematic movie and purchase at the movie reveal a piece of Artwor, or a Portrait Box.

Your Portrait Box or Artwork are stunning pieces that you get to celebrate every day on your wall. Your cinematic movie is a stand-alone piece where you get to view it on any device.

02. How long does it take to receive our photographs or movie

Photographs usually are shown from you professional studio shoot, or any stand-alone shoot the same day or within three days. Much depends on your schedule as I love sharing photographs with you right away via your private cinematic experience. Your movie is prepared within three weeks, which is also shown via your person cinematic experience.

We book your experience in; I learn what is important to you and those who will be part of your experience.

I will then photograph or create a movie for you, and then we move into your personal design consultation.

05. Are you available for wedding photography coverage?

Absolutely, I have a complete brand dedicated to weddings and engagement shoots. Geoff Wilkings Photography www.geoffwilkings.com (link at base of this website) was established in 2004, so I’ve been shooting professionally for many years.

06. Do you travel

Yes. If you shoot in located within Calgary city limits, there are no travel fees. If your photography or movie experience is in the Canadian Rockies, I charge a travel fee. For further afield, i.e., across North America, Europe or further afield, please connect with me, and I’d be more than happy to chat.

07. Should we wear special outfits?

Much of this depends on the experience you’d love. If it’s your home-based, you might want to capture as you are. Within a studio setting experience many of my clients enjoy having hair/makeup booked in prior and wear something special. I have fabulous recommendations for hair/makeup artists and will share those with you on request. Whichever coverage you opt with OKES Portraits we will communicate so that you feel comfortable, confident, and relaxed.

08. Can we have our shoot and movie experience in the mountains?

I emigrated to Canada from Great Britain in the year 2000 because of the stunning Canadian Rockies. I get it, and I’d be delighted to capture you, your family or love one in the Rockies. If you want a unique experience in the Rockies and depending on your budget, I have some great ideas for your photography or cinematic shoot. Connect with me today to learn more about options for your personal shoot.
