Rebecca Bundschuh’s career in photography was born of her desire to capture the fleeting and precious moments of her children, Anela, 9, and Kayden, 7, as they grew from babies into little people. Fast forward six years and Bundschuh’s talent has earned the adoration and accolades of the wedding and lifestyle photography industry.
Rebecca developed her eye and honed her craft through travel and by documenting the beauty of the day-to-day minutiae of life with two children. She found perspective and beauty in the fray and discovered that sometimes the most cherished memories are captured in their most natural form when they are on the fringe of a moment in time.
In 2011, one of her photos was chosen from the submitted work of over 60,000 photographers and she was awarded the honour of being named Nikon’s International Emerging Artist of the Year- widely considered photography’s top prize. Her body of work belying the fact that she is largely self taught, Rebecca is constantly building on the natural talent she possesses and never turns down an opportunity to learn and grow as an artist. Remembering the challenges of getting started in a competitive industry with fiercely guarded tricks of the trade, she offers periodic ‘Intro To Photography’ workshops in an attempt to foster the enthusiasm of those that don’t yet possess the knowledge, but share her passion. Her work has been featured in Vera Wang, Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, and Ruffled, among others. Never one to stop exploring, Rebecca is inspired by culture and travel and has shot weddings as far as Norway, Hawaii, Bermuda, Arizona, Mexico, The Dominican Republic, and New York.
Rebecca approaches photography much as she approaches life in her mountain-town home of Squamish, BC. Her work is authentic and at ease. It is her composition and eye for capturing images with unobtrusive intimacy that have become her trademarks. She considers weddings to be a natural storyboard and as such is inspired to watch them unfold without interruption, documenting and preserving the emotion, joy, and energy of the day.
“Photography is my feeling, it inspires and motivates me; it is my purpose and it has changed the way I see the world. I get such joy in being allowed the opportunity to share in so many special days. The creativity and love that surrounds us is inspiring.”
