The Best Men

The Best Men Wedding Photography is a collaboration of talented and personable photographers founded in 2012. We are committed to providing couples with exceptional non-intrusive wedding coverage, along with professionally captured images to cherish for generations to come.

With many weddings under their belts, the TBM team wanted to start a brand that embodied their style and vision for wedding photography in a world where so much of what is important in a wedding day seems to fall off track.

Our approach is simple – let’s keep it real – we want to capture the story of your wedding as it unfolds, with as little staging and posing as possible. With over 25 years of combined experience and over 150 weddings photographed, our team of carefully vetted photographers can anticipate and react when needed to ensure all of those candid once-in-a-lifetime moments are preserved forever.

Although we specialize in full day wedding coverage, we cater to every type of wedding for every type of client, and any other life event to follow thereafter. With us you’ll have more then just wedding photographers, you’ll have photographers for life… The Best Men have your back!

Antonio La Fauci

Antonio is an award winning photographer born and raised on Vancouver Island. Toni picked up a camera at the young age of 12, and hasn’t really put it down ever since. If he’s not busy with his eyes behind a lens, he’s out exploring with his wife Pauline and rescue pups Rupee and Roti, or day-dreaming of the next place to travel to, whether for work or play. Photography for Antonio is not only a profession, but also his passion, which is reflected in every shot he takes. Antonio has photographed over 100 weddings in the past decade, as well as many follow-up shoots for various life moments for his past wedding couples.

Antonio has held 2 solo exhibitions of his travel and fine-art photography work, as well as a number of contributions to group shows and various magazines. Antonio also shares a beautiful studio space named Cinderbloc with close friend and unofficial mentor Dean Azim.
