Our photography philosophy is simple: we truly believe that photography is an intimate & personal art form & your memories need to be captured in the most honest and unique way possible!

Loved working with the whole Boakview team!

When COVID hit, Kat from Boakview continuously checked in on us and was so patient with us as we postponed our wedding numerous times. She was compassionate towards the situation and supported us when changes needed to be made. And not only was she a great person to work with, but she makes you look so good in her pictures! We’ve been obsessing over each picture since we got them and reminiscing over the day. Between our engagement shoot and wedding day, we worked with a number of the photographers at Boakview, and they were all so great and did such an amazing job, and made everyone so comfortable and captured every emotion we went through! We just loved working with the whole Boakview team from the very beginning to the end! They are all such beautiful and talented people and we feel so lucky to have worked with all of them. Thank you Kat and the Boakview team for all the work you did for us!

Fantastic Boakview Photography

Boakview Photography was wonderful to work with. They helped us with our day-of timeline based on their experience, so that it was easier not only for our vendors, but also our guests. They provided us with wonderful engagement photos and memorable wedding day photos. We love Boakview's style of photography and deeply appreciated their personal touch.

We found Kat & Hugh through a friend of ours who used them as her wedding photographers. For months, we were gawking over her wedding photos and how natural every moment captured looked rather than being staged. Our relationship is very goofy and silly, so having someone capture us in our true element & in a candid way was very important to us. When we got engaged, it was a no brainer to me that we needed to reach out to Boakview Photography. We thought we would be getting just a wedding photographer and instead we got so much more. From our first meeting with them, we have felt so at ease and have had nothing but laughs and memories at our engagement photo session and at our wedding with them. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests at the wedding about how personable and great they were. They captured every moment perfectly and sent us a sneak peek so quickly after our wedding and we love every photo they took - it will be difficult to narrow down which ones we want to print to hang up around the house! Kat & Hugh are so talented and such down to earth people that it is hard to not love them - we can't say enough good things about them. We were so fortunate to have met them and feel like we have gained new friends that we can't wait to keep hanging out & laughing with!

Best day ever!

We knew Kat from a friend's wedding and are so grateful she was available for our wedding! Kat immediately felt a part of our crew, and put everyone so at ease with her humour and amazing instructions and tips. Kat and her colleague Jason did an absolutely incredible job- they captured the spirit of the day and moments that we will cherish forever. Our day was absolutely perfect and we keep reliving it through these photos. Kat and Jason are so incredibly talented and we are so grateful to have had them as such an important part of our day!

Kat is the best!

Kat took our photos for our wedding day last week, and even just with the first look photos, my husband and I are absolutely floored! Kat is majorly talented - we have the most beautiful photos and are so very grateful for having had her with us on our day. Leading up to our wedding Kat was responsive, understanding, and always a pleasure to chat with. We absolutely cannot sing her praises enough!

Boakview is the BEST VIEW of your wedding day!

Your search for wedding photographers is officially over! Kat and Gillian from Boakview Photography are supremely talented, hard-working, exceptionally kind, and delightfully fun photographers who genuinely care about their clients. They went the extra mile in so many little ways to help make our special-but-stressful day a little easier and a lot sunnier! Kat is not only wonderfully kind, but also has a genuine affinity for celebrating romance. When she combines that passion with overflowing talent for photography and her kinship with couples, the results are wonderful. Her photography partner, Gillian Foster, is a seriously talented and delightful addition to the team. She has wizard-like flash skills and a superb sense of timing and style for coaxing the most creative shots that will bring your wedding memories to life in ways the defy your expectations. What a team! You couldn't ask for a better duo of professionals to guide you through the sometimes stressful process of wedding photos. They made us feel special, supported, and cared for, which allowed us to focus on enjoying our wedding day. Any couple would be lucky to have this inspired team be a part of their special day. From getting ready to ceremony to reception, Kat and Gillian were professional, relaxed, good-spirited, and above-all enthusiastic about capturing these special memories between us and our loved ones. We couldn't have asked for better photographers, and we recommend them with full confidence! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Zoe & Dan

Beautiful people taking beautiful photos

I met Kat and Hugh at a wedding show and by the end of our conversation I knew Boakview Photography is who I wanted to trust my wedding memories to. They worked in the pouring rain on their very own wedding anniversary and I am so glad they were a part of my special day. Although we have only seen sneak peek photos so far, what we have seen can only be described as artwork. We have family who asked about Boakview Photography for their own wedding and had several guests who complimented them. They come with the highest recommendation from me!

Excellent photographers!

Kat and Hugh are a wonderful husband and wife team who were so friendly to us throughout the entire wedding process. They have a great documentary style of photography, taking beautiful candid shots and making it feel easy being in front of a camera. They offer multiple package options so you can pick and choose what features in a wedding photographer are important to you. We highly recommend this dynamic duo!

Fantastic!

I LOVED working with Boakview Photography for my wedding. Initially while searching for a photographer, I liked their beautiful and genuine portfolio of photos... and after talking to Kat on the phone, I knew we made the right choice! My fiancee (now husband) is a bit camera shy, but Kat is such a lovely, professional and funny person, that he relaxed right away. Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out fantastic! The photos are natural and not overly staged, and Boakview captured the emotion of each moment so beautifully.

I first met Katarina and Hugh at a bridal show in 2015 and was instantly drawn to their booth. Their presence was just so genuine and I knew I would get along with them. The way their photos turn out are classic and still so unique – just the look I was going for! I was nervous that my photos wouldn’t turn out as beautiful as all the ones they display, but what we ended up with far exceeded my expectations, I couldn’t be happier. On our wedding day April 22, 2017, we had Katarina and Dipak taking our photos and they made us feel so comfortable. I remember laughing so hard and having the best time. I love how they managed to get so many candid moments and such awesome group shots of the wedding party and our guests. I would recommend Boakview Photography to anyone looking for photography as they do not disappoint. Katarina was there for me when I was stressing out, gave me amazing recommendations, and acted like a great friend throughout the entire process. Boakview Photography was a major reason why my wedding day went so smoothly, and you can really see the fun we had throughout all our photos.
