How quickly times can change – as we are now in the midst of a Coronavirus pandemic we will remember for generations, at Photo Expressions we are doing what we can to help you through the crisis. Here is where you will find the most up to date information:
As of today, we remain OPEN, Monday to Friday, 12-4 at our location at 140-2550 Fremont St, Port Coquitlam (coming up on our 1st anniversary in this location on Apr 1, but we probably won’t be having a party). Please do be sensible with social distancing and self-isolation if necessary, and use your judgement when visiting.
Our portrait studio is closed until further notice.
We are disinfecting all touch points as needed, at least daily, and have only a few staff per day on site. So you are welcome to come in for emergency passport/ ID photos, or to pick up a Gather Box for prints/slides/negs (more on that below). You can also use our photo kiosks (both instant prints or lab prints). However, may we recommend:
Website ordering remains open 24/7
Our website as always is open 24/7/365 to accept photo prints!
We have curbside pickup (see below), and FREE shipping on print overs over $25, anywhere in Canada!
Stuck at home? Then now is the time to finally get caught up on your photo printing!
Here is a video that show you how very simple it is to order prints (or photo gifts, photo books, etc.) straight off your phone:
You can also use your desktop or laptop computer of course, and you can get prints straight from your social media feeds or hard drives.
Questions? Email lab @ photoexpressions.ca and we will help you out, or call 604-463-3654 during business hours.
Oh, and we should mention – our monthly special for March is 100 prints from your phone for $19!
Curbside Service and Shipping
Remember when “social distancing” wasn’t a thing yet? We were offering curbside pick-up then too!
When your print order is ready, you will receive an email. You can then drive up to the store, call 604-463-3654 and we will bring your order out to your car. Please note, if using this service you must pay online via credit card when placing your order.
Also, you can have your print orders shipped to you (or anywhere in Canada – wouldn’t Grandma like a few prints right about now?) – for $5! Or, for print orders over $25 – FREE Shipping anywhere in Canada! Just choose the option at checkout.
Current status is CLOSED until further notice.
School / Sports Portraits and Yearbooks
School and preschool portraits that we have already taken, are available for order online as always. Just visit shop.photoexpressions.ca. You will need your unique Access Code, if you don’t know it just contact studio @ photoexpressions.ca or call 604-463-3654.
We are currently setting up online ordering for all school yearbook projects, so that families can still order yearbooks that are well under way. Emails will come from your school when orders can be placed.
Gather Box – Digitize your photos, negatives and slides
You know how you can never find time to do those pesky little chores? Like getting old/inherited prints, negatives and slides scanned to digital? Well there is no better time than the present!
We are working on creating a mail-order service, but in the meantime, you can visit Photo Expressions and purchase a “Gather Box” at a flat rate. It is like a shoebox that you fill with either prints, or slides and negatives. Then you return the box to us, and we scan everything for you!
This is perfect if you thinking about downsizing (or already have), or want to be able to do something with all those memories in the digital realm.
And mention you read this page to receive 20% off your order!
Pricing as follows:

We would like to take the opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all of our loyal clients and partners. As a small, family-owned local business since 1983, we have seen the photography industry literally get turned on its head, and have evolved, survived and thrived with the help of you – our customers – and our awesome staff.
Please rest assured, we will survive this crisis as well, all of our employees will be taken care of, and we will be here for you in any capacity we can be! Stay safe, stay healthy – and get to work catching up on those memories!
