Beautiful scenery, wonderful person
Jody is a great photographer who captures the moment and the lighting beautifully, and also knows the best spots. More importantly though, she's a wonderful person who makes you feel completely at ease during the photoshoot, even for awkward couples like us. You can feel her exuberance and warmth throughout the shoot, and that really put us at ease. The photos delivered afterwards were also gorgeous, and exceeded our expectations.Sent on 24/11/2019

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

We worked with Jody for our engagement photos as well as for our wedding day. We chose to do an engagement shoot on Jody’s recommendation in order to get used to having our pictures taken for the big day, and we are so glad we made that choice. In the time we spent with Jody during the engagement session, Jody’s professionalism and passion was truly highlighted. We felt at ease and connected to her, and knew that she really cared about capturing photos that told our story and showed our connection while also showcasing the gorgeous scenery around us. Jody is personable, fun, hilarious and kind. She immediately made us feel at ease, and made our time being photographed a wonderful experience.
On the day of our wedding, Jody had a plan ready for us and worked with our tight schedule to get the most unbelievable and incredible shots. We got married at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, and the use of the incredible natural backdrops and lighting made the photos absolutely surreal. From our intimate and emotional first look moments to our epic top-of-the-mountain wedding portraits, her attention to detail and ability to capture the moment in the most beautiful way is evident in every single shot. She was also able to spot and take candid shots of our family and friends during the ceremony and reception that were simply wonderful. During the day, she was everywhere but never in the way. Having her with us was an absolute joy.
We can’t recommend Jody enough – she is phenomenal. After spending so much time with her, and having her share in and capture our wedding day, we consider Jody a friend more than anything. She is, without a doubt, the best.

Jody is Amazing!!
We can’t recommend Jody enough. We were blown away with the photos. They far exceeded expectations and we will cherish them and the memories of our special day forever.Sent on 24/11/2019
Jody isn’t only an amazing photographer, her input and help leading up to our big day was invaluable. We got married at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort but live 8 hours away, so having Jody - a skilled professional, who really knew and understood the venue was a huge help. Her input into the planning process was extremely valuable. We had multiple calls and emails leading up to the wedding where she provided her suggestions and expertise which really helped to ensure everything ran smoothly! We greatly appreciated all her input and intimate knowledge of the venue. We received so many comments from our guests complimenting Jody on her professionalism and how fun she kept the day and the photos turned out wonderfully!
Jody is amazingly talented, creative and willing to try new things. We planned a day after session with Jody and our videographer where they took us to some amazing local locations for some mountain biking shots. It was so much fun, we had a blast, we can’t wait to come back and do some more biking in Golden!
We couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out they are so beautiful. Thank you so much Jody we really enjoyed working with you!

Jody is a pro at capturing authentic and adventurous moments!
Jody was our engagement and wedding photographer. She is simply the best and is so committed to capturing authentic and adventurous moments. We were both new to being photographed and Jody made us comfortable and kept us laughing through both of our days with her. We were so thrilled with how all our photographs came out from our engagement session and knew the wedding would be every bit as amazing. On our wedding day, the weather was against us and it was a crazy day, to say the least. Jody was the rock that kept us (me) calm and she reassured us that the crazier the weather the more incredible the photos. She did not disappoint with the amazing photos she produced that day. Jody managed to catch authentic moments throughout our entire wedding day with friends and family that we will treasure forever. She also took some of the most epic mountain top photos of us that we still hard hardly believe are real. Jody was thorough, professional and adventurous! We both thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your work and for taking the risk and climbing just a little bit further along that ridge. For anyone looking for an adventurous photographer who puts her people first we absolutely recommend Jody! Jody, you are amazing, and we hope our paths cross again!Sent on 01/11/2019

More then a photogapher
Our Canmore heli-wedding quickly turned into a disaster when our wedding day was all thunder storms. Being from Ontario and having placed too much faith in the Alberta weather we didn't have any real back-up plan. Saying that I, the bride, was devastated is the understatement of the century. I spent a good three hours crying while my family and bridesmaids tried to console me. This is when Jody really stepped up, she did her best to put a smile on my face and managed to capture the getting-ready stage without capturing any of my breakdowns (truly amazing). She then proceeded to go back to husband-to-be and drive around Canmore to every spot she has ever shot looking for a place we could set up camp and get married. They managed to find the best possible option after waiting for the current wedding taking place to end. Jody then proceeded to help us orchestrate an entirely improvised ceremony all while capturing every beautiful moment perfectly. On top of everything else Jody stepped up and organized a morning after session, with us and Martha (of Martha's Heli Hikes), so that we could still get the mountain top photo's that we dreamed of!
The photo's we received from our day are beyond anything we thought possible on the day of, they truly made our not-so-organized day appear perfect in these images. I can honestly not thank Jody enough for all the work she put into this day and these images.
Jody's knowledge of the area, the terrain, and her use of nature as a back drop is truly what saved our day.Sent on 28/10/2019
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Christina! I loved your wedding day. It's actually one of my favourites from 2019! It was a pleasure documenting your day and heli session. Only the very best to you both! xoxo

The best mountain wedding photographer!
Jody has a talent for capturing raw emotion and natural beauty, which is an exquisite combination for a wedding photographer. Her photos from our engagement shoot and wedding were not only stunning, but several of them brought tears to my eyes (and others' eyes)! She also worked diligently on editing our photos AND she was an absolutely pleasure to work with. She has my highest recommendation! You won't regret hiring her for your special day.Sent on 15/09/2019
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Taryn! I thoroughly enjoyed working with you both. So much! Wishing you both an amazing life together! 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
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.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

Oct 27, 2018 Wedding in Canmore
I had Jody picked out long before I even had a venue or dress! I just knew I had to have her photograph our wedding! She exceeded all my expectations, I knew she would capture beautiful pictures but I was so overwhelmed with her talent when I received our pictures. All the emotion, love, happiness she photographed, it brought me right back to my wedding day. The pictures are beautiful I have no idea how I will chose which ones to frame! I received my pictures in the time frame that was promised. Jody was much more then our photographer, she helped throughout the day whether it be with my dress and necklace to picking up my crying two year old. She made us feel so comfortable my husband hates getting his picture taken and he loved Jody. She felt more like family..it really didn’t feel like the day of the wedding was the first time meeting in person! Everyone raved about her, she was so fun but professional and organized and kept us on schedule but also told us to relax and have a drink! I would love to re live our day and would 100% have her there hands down. I wish we lived closer so I could have her photograph our family often! We have only good things to say about Jody! Her work is amazing but she is also just as amazing!! ❤️Sent on 23/01/2019
Jody Goodwin Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Catherine and Ryan! I thoroughly enjoyed working with you both, and your families. I wish you all the best in life together. xoxo
