    My husband and I cannot say enough about Gillian Foster Photography. Not only is she professional but she makes even the very timid comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos are beautiful and breathtaking. We cannot wait to share them with our family and friends. She is accommodating, answers any and all questions that couples may have. We love Gillian Foster Photography.

    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.

    My husband and I were thrilled with Gillian and her work! What attracted us first to her photography was how beautiful, yet simple and natural the pictures looked. My husband and I are not fancy/'artsy' people and were just looking for 'normal' photographs to capture our big day. Gillian listened to what we wanted, respected our own taste, and didn't put us through any strange poses :) Gillian responded promptly to our emails and was professional and organized both before and on our wedding day. Our biggest fear was having a photographer that was 'in your face'. We didn't want someone who would get in the way of our special moments, including the ceremony, our first dance, and cutting our cake. Gillian was very careful to stand at a distance and we realized once we got the pictures back, that we forgot she was even there at some points throughout the day. Our favourite part of the wedding photography experience was taking photos before the ceremony with just my husband and I. Gillian and her assistant made it so enjoyable and easy-going, yet at the same time professional and organized and we just remember laughing throughout the pictures and having a really good time. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Gillian again (in fact, my parents did for a brunch they hosted!), and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous photographer! Gillian made the whole process stress-free, came in on budget, gave us hundreds of beautiful wedding photos, and was an absolute pleasure to work with!! Thank you Gillian! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer :)

    I can't say enough good things about Gillian! She worked with the budget we had, and captured our wedding perfectly. She was very patient when I had questions (I'd never hired a professional photographer before), and gave me one less thing to stress about on my wedding day. We will definitely hire her again in the future as our family grows.

    Gillian photographed our wedding this past August at Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge, ON. She was extremely professional and always made us feel comfortable. She was able to meet our every request and even helped me with a wardrobe malfunction just before the "I do's!" Gillian never rushed us and always made sure our needs were being met. We were extremely happy with the photos. She captured our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. - Andrea and Jonathan

    After an extensive search for a photographer, we stumbled upon Gillian. She was the perfect fit for us. Her photos are amazing and the prices are right. She is very easy to work with, giving us directions on how to pose during our engagement shoot. The photos turned out amazing and we can't wait to work with her on our wedding day.

    Great experience with Gillian. We had her take photos for 6 hours and she captured our day perfectly. We asked for mostly candid shots of our friends and family having a great time and we got back more than enough amazing photos to choose from. The overall vibe and atmosphere of the day really comes through in her photos a d she was also able to get lots of great shots of our ceremony despite the ceremony portion being very brief. Easy to work with, gillian asks you for lots of information that will help her deliver exactly what you are expecting. You get an online gallery of high resolution photos after to easily share with friends and family, as well as a usb of high resolution photos that are yours to print etc. Love our wedding photos, I would highly recommend Gillian.

    Gillian is wonderful - very flexible and easygoing. She was the perfect choice for our small, slightly informal wedding. We are so pleased with the photos. She captured exactly what we wanted.
