Customer Reviews 

Here’s a review from one of Sarah Pukin Photography’s clients:

“I can’t thank Sarah enough for the wonderful photos she shot of me. Before she even starts shooting, you can see that she already has a vision for each picture she takes. I was hesistant at first because I didn’t know any poses but she helpedme all the way throughout the shoot and totally made it comfortable. In the end, I got to see a glimpse of my pictures taken and I was taken aback! It was then that I got to see her vision come to life in each picture. I couldn’t believe the quality and skillput into my pictures! It turned out exceptional! It was so great to have chosen Sarah to do my shoot! I wouldn’t have done it with anyone else!!”

Here’s another one:

“Loved our engagement session! Sarah was a wonderful photographer that really pushed us out of our comfort zone to achieve some really amazing engagement photos. Before the shoot, Sarah reviewed some dress options and right before our session helped us pick out the perfect outfits. At the beginning of the shoot she asked us if we were willing to climb on rocks, etc. and we said yes. It allowed her to capture our candid expressions and some really genuine moments. She was great at directing both of us so we didn’t look stiff, awkward and weird. Overall she really helped us feel comfortable with the shoot. She took her time and was very prompt with the planning and communication. After seeing all the photos and selecting our top picks, we were blown away with the quality of the images. We would highly recommend Sarah to friends, family and anyone who is looking for a great photographer.”

Eluvier Acosta of Art of Headshots has a short, but extensive background in the arts and specializes in headshot photography. He is a seasoned photographer who has the cover of Vogue, Promo and GMARO. In fact, Eluvier is one of Canada’s most recognized photographers.

Eluvier was born in Southern Colombia in a town that had less than 100 residents. He always wanted to exercise his creative talent but “chose to engineer to be responsible.” He initially moved to Calgary as a petroleum engineer but his passion for people and capturing their essence changed his fate.

Highlights

  • Multiple studios available
  • Offers branding headshots

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“We used Carlos for our law firm’s headshots after we were unsatisfied with our previous photographer. Carlos spent about 15-20 minutes with each of us, and we were all very satisfied with the photos. His rates were excellent value, and he certainly kept us laughing throughout the session.”

“I found “Art of Headshots” while looking for a Vancouver-based photography studio to take a professional headshot for my LinkedIn profile. After interviewing a few different places I decided to go with Carlos, largely because of his overwhelmingly positive Yelp reviews. Trust me, the reviews ring true.

Carlos can be best described as a “true artist” rather than a mere business proprietor. While his studio is profitable, he prioritizes the production of outstanding client outcomes ahead of fiscal gain. I headed into the shoot with very high expectations, and Carlos met or exceeded all of them. While the “executive” package I purchased produces five distinct shots, which are delivered ~3 business days after the shoot, I was blown away to receive the lead shot for LinkedIn (expedited at no extra cost) less than two hours after my shoot. Have already noticed a significant increase in LinkedIn page views after uploading the new photo.

Carlos delivers great photo outcomes, but I was most intrigued by how he does so. He spent over two hours with me, engaging in a style of photography that is powered by what can best be described as an “emotional matrix”. He had me talking about various emotionally moving parts of my life, and it was at certain emotional high points of conversation that he seemed to capture the best photos. He also plays a rather inspiring music track while shooting (think I heard some Frank Sinatra?), which made the experience even more fun.

Art of Headshots delivers exceptionally high calibre photographic outcomes at a reasonable price. I unreservedly recommend them.”

The wedding industry is a magical shapeshifting creature who meets you in places you never expected to see it. That might sound a bit extreme, but it definitely holds a hint of truth. Weddings happen in skate parks, on mountaintops, and even in back alleys (although it’s usually in pretty ones).

Ella Michel Studio believes in and is attracted to these unapologetic weddings. You might be questioning what that word is doing at the forefront of their business. “Unapologetic” transformed their approach to photography because it freed them from following every tradition and trend, and they hope it does the same for you.

Highlights

  • Unique and breathtaking shots
  • Wild at heart
  • Easy to work with

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“Ella was our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. She was a joy to work with and we had so much fun together. She made my husband and I feel comfortable and had a great, chill energy. She was always quick to respond and very professional. Ella came recommended to us and we’d recommend her to anyone. We’ve definitely recommended her to friends and family and would absolutely hire her again. Ella is also affordable and gave us lots and lots of great photo memories. Can’t say enough good things about her!”

“Ella is simply THE BEST!! There is a reason she is booked for months in advance. She’s prompt, professional, patient, warm, and has a natural eye for getting that perfect shot.. Her studio was very clean and comfortable to relax in. Ella worked with us patiently for 5 hours and made even the ugliest of us (me) look amazing!!! I can not say enough about her vision and creativness. I really can’t recommend Ella enough. Even after the session I’ve enjoyed my correspondence with her. She’s been absolutely wonderful to work with and I am looking forward to using her again in the future!” Did I say she is literally one of the most talented and amazing people I’ve ever met? You can not go wrong with choosing Ella.”

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“Ryan did all the photography for our wedding in November of 2019, and I am finding it difficult to find the words to express how grateful we are to have had Ryan photograph our wedding. I can honestly say I never imagined our wedding photos could look so amazing. There are so many fantastic shots it’s impossible to pick a favorite. Ryan did a truly spectacular job, and we were absolutely blown away by his talent. More importantly, working with Ryan was so easy and fun. My husband and I usually consider ourselves quite awkward in front of the camera, and generally not very photogenic — but no one would guess that from looking at our wedding photos. With Ryan we felt totally at ease and laughed the entire time. We were very grateful to also be able to do an engagement shoot with Ryan as this was a perfect practice photo shoot, of course these photos were also spectacular. Ryan completely blew away our expectations and we could not speak more highly of him and his work. Thanks for being an absolute gem Ryan!!”

“We are so happy we picked Ryan to be our wedding photographer. We met with a couple photographers (after looking at thousands of photos online!) and decided to go with Ryan because we instantly clicked. Our engagement shoot was amazing and we have incredible photos. Ryan even went to the lengths of laying down in the mud and lake to get the perfect shot! Our wedding day went smoothly too, and have amazing photos to show from it. He made everyone feel super comfortable and was more than willing to get any specific photos or shots we asked for.
Thank you Ryan for capturing our wedding day so beautifully!!”

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“Working with Laura was an absolute dream. She was so professional and so creative. We came from Australia to Elope in Canada and Laura was the first vendor we found. We found her images on Instagram and instantly fell in love. We originally planned to do some hiking for the elopement but some of my family came so we decided to just keep the photos to around the general Emerald Lake area so they could be part of the day as well. We were so impressed with the vision that Laura had for her photos. We could tell from looking at her work that she had a keen eye for detail and we were beyond excited to see what magic she would work for us. We did a Skype call with Laura prior to committing to her as our photographer and just fell in love with her more. She is so genuine and knew instantly that we would be comfortable with her on the day. Laura kept in contact with us the whole time, and offered suggestions for vendors. We actually used her suggestions for Hair and Makeup (The Pretty Haus) and for our Celebrant (Urban Officiant). On the day Laura made us feel very relaxed and we never felt rushed or pressured. She has a very calming nature and the whole day felt easy. Infact, it wasn’t until we were back in our rooms after the day that it even hit us with how tired we were, Laura’s energy had made us completely unaware. I would recommend her to any one looking for a photographer. She is truly amazing at what she does and will make any wedding/elopement so much more memorable.”

“Laura is an incredible photographer and an absolute delight to work with! We can’t recommend her highly enough. She shot my sister’s wedding, and we loved her pictures, so we decided to hire her too. We knew in advance that she prefers to shoot nature/landscape wedding photos, and although her pictures are stunning, this was not what we wanted. We are not super outdoorsy people. We like architectural photography, and we wanted Laura to do something interesting with some of the local architecture in Calgary. Laura was super accommodating, even though this was probably outside her comfort zone. She suggested several possible sites, and we chose the new Calgary Public Library as our main spot. The library shots were spectacular! They turned out incredibly well. She also got some fantastic candid shots of our guests at the wedding venue. Her pictures gave us a more complete picture of the wedding, because the day went by so quickly that we missed a lot of what was going on. Her pictures told us the story of our wedding. She also edited and sent us our pictures within a few days, which was amazing. Thank you Laura!”

Women have always been scrutinized for how they look on camera, but Lorraine wants to break the beauty standards and capture you in your naturally beautiful state.

  • Makes you feel comfortable throughout the shoot
  • Skilled and passionate

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“Lorraine has a wonderful gift for putting you at ease. Her warmth is genuine, and you’ll feel like an old friend or even a member of the family moments after stepping into her studio. Her sense of humour makes it easy to pop a smile, and she can somehow drag a sultry pose and smokey look even out of a graceless rookie. I had portraits done that made me feel lovely. It sounds so simple, but it really is magical. The day spent in the studio was fun and re-energizing. I highly recommend the experience Mortensen Photography has to offer.”
-Amber

“I have now had two sessions with Lorraine and I can’t sing her praises enough! My first shoot with her was to create photos as part of my wedding gift to my husband; a pre-bridal shoot. I was overjoyed at all the images! Lorraine is so creative and wonderful to work with. She made me feel so comfortable and we had a lot of fun shooting in various dresses! My 2nd shoot with Mortensen Photography was more recent and I also loved it! As an opera singer I am always needing to update my photos and Lorraine knows just what to say to help capture the perfect images! She helps women feel empowered and beautiful which is not an easy job as we are often so hard on ourselves. I always end up feeling wonderful after spending time with Lorraine! I highly recommend her!”
-Alicia

“This past June I did a graduation portrait session with Lorraine. I was a little nervous leading up to the session as I have never really felt comfortable in front of the camera, but looking at Lorraine’s previous work I became very excited. On the day of the photo shoot my nerves came back, but Lorraine was wonderful, encouraging, and reassuring me, and soon I was having too much fun to be nervous. The photo shoot went wonderfully, Lorraine giving me very clear insructions and explaining along the way why certain poses worked better than others for the finished product. The entire evening was amazing and the photos turned out beautifully. Lorraine truly is a talented photographer. I would definitely give her a 10 out of 10 and recommend her service to anyone.”
-Jacey

“When I sent a message to Mortensen Photography, I was contacted by Lorraine and met with her to discuss options. The second meeting was for the photo shoot, I walked in feeling like a stranger and walking out feeling like a friend. It was the easiest experience I have had when having professional photos done. I blink when I shouldn’t, i overthink my pose and it all comes out in the photo’s. Lorraine was able to make me feel at ease; laughing and actually really enjoying the experience. I am thrilled with the final results and highly recommend her. Organized, professional, friendly and experienced. Thanks so much Lorraine, Mortensen Photography!”

Customer Reviews

My shoot with Trevor was absolutely amazing. The level of professionalism displayed by Trevor and his team was unparalleled. I had booked the entire day to give us time to shoot six VERY different looks.

I thought it was going to be exhausting but the day flew by so quickly and effortlessly.

Trevor is so easy to shoot with. He has a natural ability to draw out the exact emotion he needs and he made sure I felt absolutely comfortable the entire time.

Photography is art and I appreciated his creativity – trying different lighting and backdrops – we even went outside and used our surroundings to give the photos a new depth.

Just look at the final product! I was completely blown away by what he was able to capture. I was very proud by what we were able to produce.

I highly recommend Trevor as a photographer. I will definitely be back again!”

“I am so happy with the photos that Trevor took. He gave me great advice on what to wear etc, and he put me at ease immediately. I think he actually captured “the real me”! I highly recommend Trevor – he is very talented and a lot of fun too.”

Customer Reviews 

Some clients shared their reviews:

“When I was invited to Shannon’s Group, I was just amazed by her attitude and the pictures and the women in the group. I felt like it would be really great for me to see myself with the extra weight, as beautiful. I wanted to show myself that I could be beautiful just the way I was.

I was so nervous I had to talk myself out of an anxiety attack as I was leaving the house. As soon as I got in the door to Shannon’s it was like a wave of relief washed over me, Sam (Shannon’s super friendly ‘therapy’ lab) came up and became my best friend and I completely relaxed. It was an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to do it again.

When I was ready for my reveal, I thought for sure I wouldn’t like my images, that I would focus on all the things that I don’t like about myself, but Shannon helped my see the big picture and look at myself almost for the first time! I actually had a tough time settling on my photos, because I love so many of them.”

“I really enjoyed the session as it proved to me that I am truly beautiful and that my thoughts of what others may think of me really don’t matter. Looking at the photos and the response from them made me crave more.

This session made me feel empowered and that I could truly conquer anything at hand. Even if it may seem scary and may not feel natural, still try and you will soon find out that most things we do in life is blocked by our thoughts that our mind creates. As soon as you get past that block A whole new world of self love and worth opens up.
I can’t wait to book another session as my journey and life continues.”

She welcomed us with offers of tea and biscuits and had a little banner with my daughters name on it, which was very thoughtful.

We had never met Laura prior to our shoot and she instantly made our family of three feel at ease. She was open to our ideas (and props – tea time anyone?) and we ended up with a great mixture of “in the moment” and posed photos.

Her ability to work with us and understand our two year old’s limits will forever be appreciated, as will the photos that we now have to remember our family at this stage.

She was speedy at getting our edited photos to us, receptive and communicative leading up to our session, and genuinely fun to be around during our shoot.

We would recommend her a thousand times over.”

Here’s a review from one of Elizabeth Marie’s clients:

“Having Beth photograph and support our whole dang elopement was one of the best parts of the whole thing. Having had to change our plans due to COVID Beth was flexible and understanding with our changing from a large wedding to an intimate elopement. She scouted the perfect location for our ceremony and had everything we needed (does your photographer bring you champers and be your personal DJ and hype girl while you exchange vows?) We enjoyed every minute with Beth- she photographed our whole two days from start to finish. Beth is the most kind and genuine girl- and having her as excited as we were about our whole two days together made it so special. (I mean this girl stayed up late-late because she was so excited to get some edits to us). I was also fortunate to have Beth do my hair and my make up and it was stunning. Seriously this girl is the jack of all trades. Stop thinking about hiring this girl and fill out the dang form because you will not regret it.”

Here’s another one:

“Beth is amazing! She makes the day so fun and so stress free and captures the most beautiful moments during the day and in between. Her passion for serving her couples is beyond words and finds ways to go above and beyond for each couple to make their wedding so special and so memorable. Love Love LOVE her! If you’re looking for someone to capture your day, Beth is your person”

Customer Reviews 

Here’s a review from one of Captured in Amber Photography’s clients:

“You will not find a more down to earth, talented, easy going and genuine photographer in Calgary. Amber has a way of making you feel at ease while she captures stunning photos of your family. We have done family pictures, as well as maternity and newborn photos with Amber and have been impressed every time. Our only regret is not discovering her earlier.” – Smyth Family

Here’s another one:

“Amber was extremely professional and made both of us (camera-shy people) so comfortable, the process felt effortless! She has such an eye for detail, and set us up to look and feel our best. I can’t even begin to describe how pleased I am with the outcome and the photos that we were given. She truly captured who we are as individuals, but most importantly, as a couple. I can’t wait to have Amber capture many more milestones in our lives.” – Joel & Kelsi

Such a great experience working with Todd for our wedding at Azuridge! Photos came out absolutely beautiful, Todd was so easy to work with, turn around time on our photos was insanely quick.

Customer Reviews 

Here’s a review from one of Nathalie Terekhova’s clients:

“Nathalie is a wonderfully talented and adaptive photographer. We were fortunate to book her for our July 4, 2020 mini-wedding during COVID, and her skillful shots captured our day beautifully.

We would highly recommend Nathalie’s services, whether for a downsized wedding (like ours) or a more traditional affair. She is an absolute gem to work with, and our glowing review does not do her justice. Her professionalism is unparalleled – she is the “full package” and a 10/10”

Here’s another one:

“Nathalie is so passionate about what she does. She took beautiful photos of our extended family and my husband and I, even though none of us really like to have our pictures taken and were very awkward. We were thrilled with the result. Our wedding photos are so vibrant and she captured every arrangement of family that we wanted. She even managed to get several flattering photos of my father (a man who has actively run from cameras his entire life). We highly recommend her!”
