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 work has been featured on The Wedding Co, Huffington Post, Magnet Street Blog and more.
Four wedding collections are offered by the business, each with different hours of coverage. A la Carte options are available, such as a second photographer, albums, canvas and printed products, and additional coverage.
Each package includes the following services:
Gillian offers photography services throughout the Greater Toronto Area and southern Ontario, including Vaughan, Mississauga, Brampton, North York, Pickering, Milton, Guelph, Oakville, Burlington, Niagara, and Hamilton. She loves to travel and is ready to cover your special event outside her usual service area as well.

I've never felt more comfortable
Gillian was by far the best experience of my wedding. She was able to make my husband and I feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera for both our legal ceremony in 2020, and our wedding 2.0 in 2021, and the photos were amazing!Sent on 18/10/2021

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!Sent on 11/07/2018

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 :)Sent on 06/04/2018

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.Sent on 14/03/2017
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.
