Your Memories are Safe in my Hands

If you answered yes, YES or HELL YES to any of these questions, I’m your photographer! I make authentic photographs of who you are and what you value, because I want to help you remember the fleeting seconds of your lives before they slip away.

This is me launching myself into my husband, Jay’s, arms.

Thank you for landing here!

I’m Bobbi Barbarich, an award-winning documentary wedding and family Nelson BC photographer available for celebrations anywhere your love and life might take you. While I photograph lots of Kootenay weddings, I frequently travel all over British Columbia: to Vancouver and Kelowna, and to Kootenay weddings in towns like Revelstoke, Fernie, Kimberley… and pretty much anywhere your wedding might be!

I’m also a devoted documentary family photographer who travels for Adventure and Day in the Life documentary family photography sessions throughout British Columbia and beyond.

Photography has the power to bring memories rushing back into our minds and bodies. I choose to photograph you and your loved ones candidly so that those memories are about your moment, not the moment you stopped to look at the camera.

People are their most honest selves when they are with one another doing something they love. I naturally photograph the meaningful gestures and expressions that define you and your relationships.

Photographs are portals to our family history. They tell the next generations who we were and what we were like. Our family’s story is told through the photographs we leave behind.

I’ve been a Nelson BC photographer for over a decade. I’ve had the honour of photographing nearly 250 weddings and innumerable families. If you’re looking for someone to capture the essence of a moment, I’m your photographer. I look forward to hearing from you!
