The Absolute Best Photographer!
Having a top notch photographer was one of our highest priorities for our wedding day. So we started searching a year and half in advance to be sure we got our top pick. Well the search was over quicker than we thought it would be, once we found Jody. Looking through her portfolio and website, we immediately connected with her aesthetic, and the adventurous spirit she captured in her work.Sent on 27/03/2020
We scheduled a Skype meeting, and immediately knew we had found our photographer. Though we had a few others on our list, we knew right away that Jody was the best fit for us, and confirmed her right away.
Although we didn't originally have an engagement session booked, we added it on when we traveled up there for a quick wedding planning vacation. We are so happy we did, as we got a beautiful set of pictures, and an opportunity to work with her and get to know her before our wedding day. This shoot only confirmed that we had chosen the right person. She knew the best spots for the photos, and was excellent in cueing and directing us, making us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. The photos turned out better than we could have hoped for.
The wedding day was no different. She worked so hard all day, kept us laughing, tromped walkways through the snow for us (we had a winter wedding), and even got waist deep in it at one point to get a shot, and made sure we were happy and comfortable the entire time she was crafting gorgeous shots.
Notes from the bride: On our wedding day, she not only continued to create gorgeous shots for us (sooo many people have said they should be in some wedding magazine), but she played another role that I didn't even anticipate. The wedding day is stressful and fast paced, and her personality is both calming and fun, which was so valuable considering that as a bride, you will be spending a very large chunk of your day with your photographer. She was also our advocate. She had snacks, she gave me some quiet time when I needed it, she acted like an additional support system throughout the day. Both my husband and I love her work, and her personality. We are going to surprise her in her hometown one of these days just to hang out now.
We loved her work, we loved the time we spent with her, we love Jody!
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so much for these kind words, Karin and George! I loved working with you both so much! From our moody engagement session at Moraine Lake through to your winter wedding day in Lake Louise, all of it was wonderful to be a part of. Please surprise me one day! I LOVE this idea so much! Only the very best to you both. xoxo

Cannot recommend enough!
Jody did our engagement session and there was no question that we wanted to work with her for our wedding too. She is responsive to what we envisioned but at the same time, she adds her creativity. On the day of the wedding, she was such a joy to have around!! It felt like she as part of the family. The most amazing aspect is that she is from the mountains, so before the actual wedding day, Jody scoped out a few good spots (because you never know in January!) so we feel like we had a customized shoot in locations that were beautiful and unique. Our photos turned out gorgeous!! Lots of comments about the photos looking like they’re from a magazine which we don’t mind hearing ha. It has been a genuine pleasure to work with Jody, she is a beautiful photographer and a wonderful person. We cannot recommend her strongly enough.Sent on 23/04/2019

Wedding Photos to Exceed All Expectations — Jody is Amazing!
We had such a wonderful experience working with Jody! We thought choosing a photographer for our wedding would be a difficult decision, but as soon as we saw Jody's work (and met her on Skype), we knew instantly that we had found our photographer. Her portfolio is beyond beautiful, and nothing else we saw anywhere even came close.
Jody is professional and courteous in her communication, and by the time we met on our wedding day, we truly felt like we had known her for years. She was a complete joy to work with — we wish we could do it all over again! Jody made both my husband and I (and our families) feel at ease in front of the camera; we never thought we could have so much fun having our pictures taken. It was easily one of our favorite parts of the day.
We have shared Jody’s photos with so many friends and family members, and their reactions are always the same — people are speechless. Jody has the ability to capture the most special, important, intimate moments on camera. Her photos are not only beautiful and creative, but they tell a story. She loves the outdoors and working with natural landscapes, so each image is framed with such care. We are so happy with our photos, and look forward to sharing and cherishing them for years to come.Sent on 13/02/2019
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so very much for your kind words, Julia and Brian! I absolutely loved your day, meeting your families and friends, and of course, getting the honour to work with you both. I wish you both the very best together! xoxo

Pictures that will last us a lifetime, best way to remember our special day!
I'm going to start off by saying I don't know if I can write Jody a review that will do her or her work justice. We received our wedding photos back this past weekend and we are blown away at the quality and quantity of pictures! She did an amazing job capturing one of the most important days of our lives and we had so much fun doing it! Jody is super relaxed, laid back and very focused! She wasn't pushy and she didn't make us pose in odd poses she just let us go about our day pointing us towards good lighting and beautiful views. She joked with us and had us laughing the whole time which made for amazing pictures. I highly recommend Jody to anyone who is looking for a photographer with awesome vibes and insane photography skills! Jody if you are reading this, you are a rockstar!!!Sent on 18/12/2018
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:You guys were awesome to work with! I equally loved my time with you both, and your families. I am so pleased that you are happy with the end results. We had a great day together! Thank you so very much for your kind words. I deeply appreciate them. Happy Holidays, and only the best to come in the New Year! xoxo

If you want amazing photos, this is your photographer
While researching wedding venues initially, I saw one of Jody's photos come up on pinterest. It was so stunning. I ended up finding our venue via her website and obviously then had to have her as our photographer. She photographed our wedding and our engagement session. She is just an overall amazing person and has a way of making everyone feel super comfortable. She goes out of her way and puts herself in, at times, compromising positions to get the most amazing shot for you. Her photos are fantastic and you will not find another photographer in the area that can capture you and the landscape quite like her.
We loved our engagement photos and have only gotten our sneak peeks for the wedding so far. However, based on those, I can only imagine what the entire set will look like. She is worth every penny :)Sent on 10/08/2018
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Ashley! I absolutely loved working with you and Mark so much! It was such a pleasure working with you both for your engagement session and wedding day. All the best to you both! xoxo
