    Overall Amazing

    Kathleen and everyone did an amazing job for our special day. She made sure we knew what to expect, planned everything out and made sure to give lots of time to get everything just right.

    They are very social and fun, as well as very professional. Could not give them a better rating or say anything negative, they went far above and beyond what we expected.

    She did our Engagement pictures and our wedding, and both turned out phenominal. Our Engagement shoot landed us about 80 pictures in an hour that all look great, and out wedding had 9 hours of service we got over 700 pictures and they all look incredible! Kathleen also got our videography team who also did amazing work.

    Could not recommend more for anyone needing a great photographer.

    Beyond amazing!

    Without a doubt Kathleen was the best thing we paid for on our wedding day. The most amazing photos, the sweet and kindest person. Literally couldn’t have gotten a better photographer. She doesn’t get in the way, I swear I don’t know how she got some of the photos because I didn’t see her take them. She’s a joy to be around and honestly makes everyone feel so beautiful while taken the picture hyping everyone up. Will only have her take photos for us and our family now. I highly recommend her.

    Tanisha, you are the sweetest! You guys were so incredibly fun, and I loved being a part of you & Gabe's special day. I am so lucky to have clients like you two!

    A Wonderful Wedding Photographer

    We worked with Kathleen for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we honestly could not be happier with the results. The quality and professionalism of the images is unmatched, and Kathleen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was able to capture all of the special moments of our wedding day, often without us even realizing a photo was being taken. Kathleen was very flexible with her schedule and she very easy to work with. Her personality is so cheerful, she made our wedding party feel comfortable immediately. If you are looking for a great wedding photographer, look no further, Kathleen is it!

    Kathleen Gillis Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Katy! I am so lucky to have been the photographer for your beautiful wedding. So happy you both had such a great day with me!

    Phenomenal Experience under any circumstances

    Our experience with Kathleen was prolonged by the pandemic but she was a phenomenal partner throughout. She shot our engagement shot and our wedding, leaving us with great memories of both. Kathleen's level of enthusiasm and pride in her work are second to none. She never runs out of energy and is so amazing at getting the best shots and smiles, even with the most difficult of people. Everyone was stunned by the beauty of the first batch of wedding photos and we can't wait to receive the rest of them. We wouldn't hesitate to work with her again or to recommend her to anyone! Thank you again Kathleen for loving and mastering what you do!

    Thank you so much Kayla & Daniel. You guys were absolutely amazing to work with, and your whole wedding day was beautiful from start to finish! Cheers to you both and your families!

    Kathleen is that One-in-a-Million Photographer!

    My husband (of 26 years) and I hired Kathleen Gillis for our Vow Renewal ceremony. We had the most wonderful experience with Kathleen. Our first wedding (1993), we had a nightmare experience with the photographer we chose but Kathleen was a completely fabulous experience from the moment we met her (at a wedding show in Ajax) to our VR, 8 months later. Kathleen wants the best experience for her wedding couples. She always made us feel like we were the most important bride & groom ever! Kathleen is that one in a million photographer who constantly has fresh, exciting ideas. Our wedding guests also commented on how fabulous she was and whatever she could do to make our experience positive, she did that. She was always very quick to answer any questions we had from the very beginning until she delivered our beautiful wedding book plus extra photos we wanted. The whole experience was professional without feeling put off (as we had experienced previously). We can't say enough positive things about Kathleen. She is warm, kind, great sense of humour with natural talent. I would recommend her as your wedding photographer. We promise, you won't be disappointed!

    Kathleen Gillis Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Kathryn! You and Paul were an absolute pleasure to work with, and I am so glad to have given you both the wedding photography experience you deserved! Cheers to 25 more years for you and Paul.

Meet the Team

Kathleen
Kathleen
Owner/Main Photographer

My career is one I picked out of pure love. Photography started as a hobby when I was just a kid, and eventually it was the only thing I could see myself doing everyday forever. I attended Seneca College for photography, and then poured myself into building my business as soon as I graduated. It has been such a roller-coaster, and I wouldn't change it.

My personal life is all about my family and close friends. I am an aunt to 7 amazing little munchkins, and between my 4 siblings and my husband’s 2 siblings, that number is always growing. With my family being as big (and as crazy) as it is, I understand how meaningful your life events are. I approach each event as if it were my own important milestone, and I work hard to make sure that I don't miss a thing.

I am bubbly, cheerful, enthusiastic, and a complete sucker for love and life. I can't wait to hear from you!
