    10/10 recommend

    Gillian was kind and professional. We enjoyed having her warm personality present, and she made us all feel comfortable. Based on her as a person alone, I would recommend her, but the final product was breathtakingly beautiful. I highly recommend you hire Gillian to capture your day.

    Gillian is absolutely amazing!

    Gillian was absolutely amazing! It was so easy to connect with her and she made our wedding photo shoot so fun! We had our wedding at the Botanical Gardens and she knew exactly where to shoot and gave us plenty of posing ideas. She was friendly and excited for us, which made us feel very comfortable shooting with her. We also appreciated her professionalism before, during and after the wedding and she got our wedding photos to us within two weeks after our wedding. The photos turned out beautifully and we are so grateful for the ways she captured our special day together.

    Wonderful!

    Gillian was absolutely wonderful, I was so worried about the pictures (I'm not comfortable in front of a camera) but she not only made both me and my husband comfortable they also came out fantastic. I can't wait to show our album to our family
