About Gillian Foster Photography

Photographer and artist Gillian Foster focuses on capturing bright, artistic and candid images. She discovered her passion for photography when she developed her first photograph in the darkroom at the University of Guelph in 2006. During her first three years as a photographer, she shot entirely on film because she loved the process of printing her own images. Specializing in contemporary and photojournalistic styles of photography, she completed her BA in Studio Art and now shoots weddings and lifestyle sessions digitally. Her company was a winner in the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Awards in 2016 and has been featured on The Wedding Co and Huffington Post.

    July 1st, 2018 wedding

    We hired Gillian to capture our wedding and she has surpassed anything we hoped for. We have yet to see the entire collection but from the sneak peak the photos are truly beautiful! I would highly recommend Gillian to anyone looking for a photographer for important life events! Gillian was able to take candid shots that really captured the essence of the the people she photographed. She was helpful right from the first meeting. She was open to our ideas yet she knew how to make the most of the scenery and lighting and has given us gorgeous pictures! Gillian kept everyone relaxed and at ease and worked extremely hard throughout the afternoon and evening to capture all the important parts of our wedding. Her passion for her work, artistic flair and knowledge of her craft are extremely evident in the final product!

    Picture Perfect

    Gillian, where do we begin. She captured our wedding day perfectly, my husband was not one to be keen on having lots of 'traditional' photos taken. We requested that she get lots of photos of the event and people enjoying themselves. Which is did- captured every detail- She also got photos that in years to come we will cherish, first look, family photos etc.
    Thank you again Gillian, we would recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer :)

    Gillian was everything we wanted from a wedding photographer. Unlike many others who merely buy a fancy camera and call themselves a photographer, she is properly trained and accredited in both film and digital photography and it shows. Her understanding of lighting and lenses was clear from her portfolio, we saw a level of skill we did not see with other photographers we interviewed.

    From the start Gillian was highly professional, not to mention very sweet and understanding. She understood immediately we were not your average client, as we are both creative professionals, and she was very open to our ideas. We discussed various concepts for getting a bit more creative with our photos than most couples are willing to do, and Gillian was enthusiastic and shared our excitement for our big day.

    When the day came, Gillian worked wonders. She could corral people into photos firmly yet politely, she was efficient and tireless, and made sure we got all the coverage we discussed. We had our own videographer that she meshed well with. Her assistants did their job well too, and we ended up with some amazing and unforgettable photos (the day was such a blur we actually remember it through our photos).

    As an added bonus, we turned our engagement shoot into an epic post-wedding shoot at the RC Harris Water Treatment Plant and the Scarborough Bluffs. In some ways those pics are even better than anything we did at the wedding, as it was more relaxed and informal.

    When it came time to get our photos from her, Gillian made it clear if there was anything we didn't like, or anything we thought we took pics of but weren't seeing, or in my case requesting a few extra files, she would gladly provide more without any extra charge. We also had her put together our wedding album, which were gorgeously bound for us.

    I could not recommend Gillian more, we already have plans to use her again for other events in our lives. Her price is very reasonable compared to market rates and for what we got in return, her professionality is unmatched, her skills and experience are high, and her personality is gentle and welcoming. You won't regret hiring her.

    Could not have asked for a better photographer!

    From the first day we met Gillian, we knew she would be the perfect photographer for us. We wanted someone who could capture elegant, candid moments and make us feel comfortable and natural throughout the whole process, and she did just that. We also love how organized Gillian is (coming from two people who are pretty organized ourselves this is saying a lot), and that she has a quick turnaround time on her photos. We were delighted with our engagement photos taken last October, and the recent sneak peak of our wedding photos have left us eagerly anticipating the full album!
