hippo photography is based in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada. Husband and wife team Robin and Elaine Phillips cater for weddings of all sizes and shapes. Locations have included Kelowna, Vancouver, Edmonton and as far away as Africa! Robin has been taking photos since 1991 and on a professional basis since 2004. He has studied photography at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and University of Calgary. Elaine acts as a back-up photographer and is great with people!


Your wedding photos will always be there to remind you of your special day and the happiness you enjoyed. Our aim is to set you at ease on your wedding day so all you need to do is relax and have fun. We will work with you to put together a package that suits your unique needs and your budget.
