About Us

Hey there! I am Josie – the main videographer behind Memory Lane Video and Photo. How glorious is it that I get to call this my job, hey?? I love being able to watch life’s amazing moments on my camera screen and then create a video that captures the feelings from those moments.

When I am not videoing weddings, you will more than likely find me hanging out with my wonderful husband (Shaun) and adorable two kids. We are the definition of BUSY with two kids under the age of two, but we would not change it for the world. The amount of love I have for these three takes my breath away and makes me feel all sorts of gratefulness. I am one lucky girl.

I love travelling and have been fortunate to explore much of this world with the best travel buddy, Shaun. We have had adventures in most of the Western European countries, Belize, Costa Rica, and the USA – We even lived in England for a year after we graduated high school. Work has allowed us to photo/video two weddings in Mexico so far as well as a handful of Canadian destinations … we hope to add more destination weddings to that list soon!

Thanks for stopping by our site. We really do love what we do and do not take our job “lightly”, we pour our heart and souls into each and every project we work on. We would be honoured to be considered to capture a piece of your life via video and/or photo.

Hey! My name is Tess-Lynn, but just call me Tess – I am the main photographer for Memory Lane Video and Photo. I like to think I have the coolest job in the entire world because how could you possibly be sad at a glorious event that is a wedding day! It is so remarkable to be trusted to document someone’s life long memories and I love creating images that are as unique and wonderful as you are!

My Husband (sometimes called Nevander- Real name Nevan) and I live on a farm with our puppy baby Benjamin the Yorkshire Terroir and a few other animals- you know, the usual farm residents: Cows, Horses, Cats, more Dogs, a Mini Pony and soon some GOATS and little Pot Belly Piggies (Nevan says no, but we’ll compromise and I’ll get some goats and piggies).

I have a love for interior design, clothes and shoes; which means my house is constantly changing and the closet growing. I love me some 90’s Pop music- hello Backstreet Boys and Hansen Brothers! My favorite thing to drink is cold coffee…not iced coffee, cold coffee. Call me nasty, but I’m obsessed!

I may not be the world traveler that Josie and her crew are but from what I have experienced, nothing can beat it! There is nothing like going to unfamiliar places and doing new things! Thinking of a destination wedding? You don’t have to twist my arm, I’ll be there with bells on!

Weddings

We believe that all couples, engagements, and weddings are unique. We want to ensure that your wedding package is tailored to meet your individual needs. Please get in touch with us to discuss the variety of options available to you to have the wedding of your dreams beautifully captured within your budget.

Engagement
Engagement films

This is a perfect way to tell your story. Answer questions about your engagement, how you met, and what you love about each other. We will spend time doing something you love to do as a couple (cooking, going to coffee, walking in the park, etc). Sessions typically last around 2-3 hours. Final video will be approximately 3 minutes in length.

Engagement Photos

Let us capture the love between you and your partner. We want you to be able to remember how you felt during this exciting time in your relationship. Sessions typically last around 2 hours. You will receive 40+ high-resolution photos professionally edited.

Family
Family Films

The sweet sound of your little girl laughing, or the high pitch squeal your growing boy makes when he is excited is something you want to remember forever. Let us help. We will spend some time (2-3 hours) with your family doing “family things” (just a typical day) and create a beautiful 3-minute film of the moments that simply go too quickly.

Family Photos

These session (1-2 hours) can be in your own home or outdoors. We will go on an “adventure” with your family to create honest, genuine, real photos of you interacting. You will receive 25+ high-resolution photos.

Why Book With Us

We get it. Wedding are expensive, stressful, and downright overwhelming at times. Choosing your videographer/photographer is one of the most important choices you will make. Read below, if you like what you read, get in touch. We will meet, we will talk, and if sparks fly, mark one more thing off of your to-do list baby – you have your A-Team!

So why us?
  • We value real moments. Our main goal is to capture your special day’s events as they naturally unfold. We of course will give small amounts of direction when needed to ensure you have a beautiful end product. The images and videos we present you should reflect who you are as a couple. AKA – if you’re not a “mushy” couple we are not going to ask you to kiss in 20 different locations while we video/photograph you. Your video and photos will tell your unique, special, kick-ass story – not a made up version of you. PS – this is why engagement sessions are SO important. We want to get to know you before we capture the most important day of your love story.
  • We care. We do this because we love it. We want your wedding day to be the best day ever and we will do whatever we can to help make that happen. We have assembled broken bouquets, troubleshot broken DJ equipment, fixed venue PA issues, ironed shirts and so on. We’ve got your back. This is the day you are pledging your life to one another … we get to capture that?! Yeah, we know how awesome that is and we don’t take it for granted.
Benefits of booking photo and video combined packages?
  • We are a team. I know that Tess likes to drink her coffee cold (a quality that makes a great mom…hint hint Tess), she knows that a dairy milk bar basically makes all of my troubles go away. We are awesome at doing this wedding thing together. Booking us as both your photographer and videographer lets us both transition between photos and videos as the day requires. We have a combined goal. We know what we need for a killer video, and also what pictures to snap to ensure you have a beautiful wedding album (and facebook picture – let’s be honest).
  • No compromises. We work together. We know where one another typically positions themselves for the best angles. We know our style. We know our “must get shots”. If I am recording a video clip and think it will make a great photo – BAM you have the photo. We will also work with you to understand where and when you would like photos or video to be given precedence.
  • We have the big guns. Our video cameras record in 4K, meaning we can produce still images from our video files. So what does that mean for you? We’ve got you covered (again!). Between our video cameras and our photographer chances are you will get a photo of that OMG moment. Let’s say Uncle Bob is really excited to see you walking down the aisle and steps in front of the photographer blocking their view of the groom’s reaction. OH NO! Don’t worry (we’ve got your back, remember?), we can grab that photo from one of our clear Uncle Bob free angles.
  • MONEY HONEY. It’s cheaper. We are able to offer CRAZY discounts when you book both video and photos. It’s a win, win.

Love Notes

“Josie and Tess-Lynn were so great to work with! They were very professional and friendly. We received our highlight video and I honestly couldn’t be happier with it! I am really excited to get our whole day video. We are SO happy we decided to go with a videographer it is definitely worth EVERY penny!! Being able to relive the day that goes by in flash is amazing. If you haven’t budgeted for a videographer I would definitely recommend reconsidering. Thank you both so much for your amazing work and for capturing our special day!”
