    5/5 stars is an understatement

    To my husband and I, picking the right photographer was the most critical decision to make for our elopement. Not only are photos the only way we could preserve such a special day, but having the right person that could capture the most candid (often unrecognized at the time) moments was a top priority. Looking at her portfolio, you can tell Jody is incredibly talented, but there is so much more that she brings to the table. From the first consultation call, I felt at ease. In the time leading up to our day, Jody continued to assuage my wedding nerves as she helped us figure out a timeline for our day, and how to make best use of our time. Her organization, time management, and general knowledge of how elopements functioned at the resort were invaluable. She came up with a plan A, B and C, just in case weather or timing did not work in our favor. She scoped out a second location for our photos along the river, which provided an incredible backdrop.
    When I got off the gondola and met Jody, I felt like I was meeting an old friend to catch up. My husband and I cannot say enough about how personable, vivacious, and down to earth she is. You can tell she loves what she does, and she passes that love on through her work. Our photos were magical - every time I look at them, I go back to how I felt in that moment. Probably my favorite photo in the gallery is not one of my husband and I, but it is of a very emotional 'first look' moment I had with my dad. Every time I look at the photo, I still cannot believe how much LOVE she captured in that moment. It is truly priceless.
    Jody certainly has a gift, a natural ability, that is complimented by her personality and positive energy. We are still overwhelmed with emotion when looking through our gallery, and watching our slideshow. Our day would not have been the same without her, and we will always be thankful!
    Thank you so much, Jody!
    -Britt and Brad

    Beyond perfect

    The word amazing isn’t enough to describe Jody. She is an absolute angel, and that is an understatement. She was so helpful threw the entire planning process of our wedding. From recommending other venders that were also fabulous, to being an excellent guide on the day of our wedding, knowing exactly where to go and what to do. She was beyond helpful and holy crap is she hilarious! She is such a kind beautiful soul. We would get married every day over and over again just to be able to hang out with her!

    We have gotten some proofs back from her and already we are absolutely blown away. The magic in each and every photograph she has sent us is unimaginable. Every time we look at any of these beautiful photos we are instantly transformed back to that beautiful day. Her talent is inconceivable.

    Not only is she one of the most creative and highly skilled people we’ve ever met she’s also the most motivated, patient and passionate. We cannot recommend her enough. We will forever tell everyone about this magnificent woman. If you’re thinking of having her photograph your wedding don’t even think anymore just book her. You will not be disappointed.

    Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for these kind words, Alyssa and Kyle! I loved your adventurous wedding so much! Thank you for being so wonderful to work with!

    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.

    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.

    Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Carrie and Mike! I loved working with you both so much. It was such a pleasure being a part of your day! xoxo

    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.

    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!!!

    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 :)

    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

    I wish I could give Jody 10 stars

    We had the pleasure of working with Jody for our engagement photos and our wedding day. She was an absolute delight to work with and it felt like spending the day with a friend. She brought an amazing energy to our wedding day and some of our favourite moments were our portrait sessions with Jody. Neither my husband or I really enjoy having our picture taken and Jody made us feel completely at ease and captured some really amazing memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

    Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:

    You are so kind, Jennifer!! Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved working with you both just as much, and am so grateful I got to be your lucky photographer. Many warm wishes to you both. xo

    The very first thing I wanted to book after getting engaged was my photographer. Living in a beautiful destination (the Canadian Rockies) means there are ALOT of photographers to choose from, and Jody is one of the best!

    A few things that make Jody an absolute dream of a wedding photographer:

    Her infectious, bubbly, welcoming personality means working with her is like working with a best friend. Have photos taken of you isn't something most people (including myself and my husband) are used to, let alone comfortable with. With Jody, you don't even notice. She lets you create your authentic moments with just the right amount of support (what Jody does is so much more that direction or posing - support really is the only word for it) to make you into the supermodel you could always be.

    Open and collaborative style. Jody is there for you every step of the way and answers any questions you have, provided gentle suggestions and just knows the shots that are going to make your jaw drop. She works with you to really understand what you want from your wedding photos - and oh boy does she deliver!

    Eye for detail and that "WOW" moment. Jody really is an incredible photographer. Her eye for placement, lighting, and focus is really second to none, meaning she captures photos you would never think of, but instantly fall in love with. She sees those moments you didn't even notice (because weddings are crazy) and gives you a snapshot that moment in time that you will treasure forever.

    Finally, Jody delivers, not just the best photos of you and your husband looking your best, but on time and in a meaningful way; handwritten notes and beautifully presented final files that you can spend hours flipping through over and over, reliving magical day made even more spectacular by the moments captured forever in time by Jody!

    Thank you so much, Jody, for being the absolute perfect photographer for our wedding day!

    Amanda & Brodie

    Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:

    Oh my goodness, thank you so much for your kind words, Amanda and Brodie! You guys were so much fun to work with! I equally enjoyed our time together through the engagement session and your beautiful wedding. I really appreciate you taking the time to send this. Thank you!! xoxo

    We knew Jody was the perfect photographer for us the first time we looked at her portfolio. After receiving our photos yesterday we were completely blown away, exceeded all expectations, nothing short of magical.

    We really appreciated how helpful Jody was during the planning stages especially as we live on the other side of the world.

    On the day Jody was an absolute pleasure to be around. So lovely and relaxed and helped us to feel at ease to just have fun.

    Thank you Jody for capturing just how beautiful our day was, your photos take us back to that feeling every time we look at them.

    Katie and Dan.

    Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:

    You are most welcome, Katie and Dan! It was a pleasure working with you both. Thank you so much for your kind words! xoxo
