    Truly Amazing

    There is not one word that truly describes lily and her team. They were absolutely fantastic went above and beyond for my bride and I. She went from being our photographer to helping my bride get her makeup fixed. (Super hot out that it melted) she made my entire wedding party feel amazing. They captured beautiful moments throughout the night. Capturing such raw emotion that we truly love. We can look through the photos over and over reliving our magical day. They even offered to help out when there were some problems with our venue. We will be definitely be booking with them again through our journey together. I have seen great photographers before but nothing to their exceptional level. Truly appreciate being part of the LLP couples family. They are more than just a photography company. They proved this with their high caliber of photos and ideas used during the entire wedding day. I would recommend them over and over no question.
    Thank you Lily Laidlaw Photography , LLP

    Lily Laidlaw Photography's reply:

    Dear Michael and Kelsey,

    We felt so honoured to have been able to capture your wedding and engagement photos! Although it would have definitely been ideal to have had things go perfectly on the wedding day, we were so happy to have been able to help find solutions to the challenges that occurred (fixing Kelsey's make-up, helping reorganize the reception timeline, etc.) Everything ended up working out so well in the end, and when we were packing up at the end of the night, we saw you smiling and laughing and dancing the night away with your loved ones, and knew that it was ultimately a success! Thank you so much for your kind words and both Chelsea and I very much look forward to helping you and Kelsey capture more important milestones in the future!

    Best person you could choose to be part of your special day!

    You wouldn’t regret choosing Lily as your photographer!! She is extremely dedicated, and you can tell that she truly loves her work! She takes pride in her work and makes sure to get the pictures of what was most important to us. We hired her for our wedding, and it was the best decision we did! Every picture really captured our essence as a couple, and every picture turned out amazing, no complaints at all! I was so worried that my now husband and I would be too awkward in a professional photograph, but she made us extremely comfortable and so reassuring. We did not have anything to worry at all because she made sure that everything was perfect!  She really gotten to know me and my husband to make sure to pick the location most perfect for our engagement pictures, and on our wedding day, she made sure she knew what priority pictures we wanted and made sure to capture those moments. Our ceremony did get delayed, but because she wanted to make sure to capture the important parts of our wedding that were important for us, she stayed extra of no charge! Last but not the least, I planned everything for our wedding, and found it to be very overwhelming, but Lily helped me with it, she helped me with emailing/looking for vendors, gave me so many ideas of what I could do on certain parts of the ceremony or wedding and even talked with me for any time of the day to help me for the wedding. She is a truly lovely and such a genuinely kind person! You would not regret hiring her for any occasions!

    Lily Laidlaw Photography's reply:

    Blenda, it was such a pleasure being yours and Donovan's wedding and engagement photographer! (Chelsea and Kennedy also really enjoyed being a part of capturing these memories for you!)

    It's wonderful to know that we made you feel at ease in front of the camera, communicating well, and helping support you throughout the planning process leading up to the big day. Thank you so much for the referrals and looking forward to seeing your new family grow over the coming years! Congratulations!!

    Best wedding

    We had a previous photographer who double booked us during the chaos of COVID. We were left hanging, this was stressful to say the least. But I’m so happy it happened, lily was so easy to talk to, and she recommended the best location for our engagement photos. She not only saved the day, but she took the most beautiful engagement and wedding photos. She was so fun to do the photos with and I’m so thankful things ended up the way they did.

    Lily Laidlaw Photography's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Bob. I am so happy that I was able to help pull things together for you and Dayna. Your wedding was gorgeous and I am so thankful to have been a part of your story. I wish you both all of the happiness in the world. I hope to capture more special moments in the future, enjoy your sweet little family!

    Hiring Lily as our wedding photographer was the best decision!

    Working with Lily and her associate Chelsea for our wedding was absolutely amazing! Lily goes above and beyond for her clients and she is incredibly hardworking and dedicated. Lily made the photography part of our wedding so smooth and joyful and we got so much feedback from our guests about how lovely Lily and her team were. Hiring Lily as our wedding photographer was the best decision, and she will be a part of all our important milestones going forth! Lily also helped design our wedding monogram and reception menus and we found many of our vendors through her curated recommendations.
    Not only is her work beautiful and of high quality, she is kind, generous and so sweet. We have recommended Lily to all our friends, and will continue to sing her praises!”

    Framing Your Moments

    I have had the pleasure of having Lily capture many of my families precious life moments. From doing our daughters cake smash photos, to multiple family and lifestyle sessions, and most recent Christmas Minis. Lily has worked along side our family to give us beautiful pictures that we can enjoy now, but also something that can get passed down to our children when they are older. Becoming a Mother, I have realized that life goes by way too fast, and photography allows you to frame those moments that slip by quickly. It is very evident that Lily strives to make sure that you not only get beautiful high quality pictures, but that your entire experience is smooth and stress free. Photography is a very personal experience, and I would highly recommend chatting with Lily to see if she could be the one who works to capture some of your most precious life moments. I was married prior to knowing Lily but if I hadn't been I would of certainly gotten her to do my wedding photos!

    Would recommend 1000 times over!

    I’m so happy we chose Lily to be our wedding photographer! First I’ll start by saying she is incredibly talented and we are over the moon happy with our photos!!! They are perfect!
    She is one of those personalities that is easy to be around with a contagiously good mood. I think it shows through in her photos how relaxed and comfortable she makes you feel. I am to say the very least awkward, and she helped me really just enjoy the moment.
    Secondly I would also like to add that she went above and beyond my expectations. During covid was a difficult time to plan a wedding and she really helped me sort out some stressful situations. She also recommended vendors, gave great advice and brought the most thoughtful little wedding gift.
    I would recommend her 1000 times over!

    Lily Laidlaw Photography's reply:

    Dayna, thank you for allowing our team to be a part of your special day. You and Bob were absolutely stunning and I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, they mean so much to me. I am so thankful you found us and hope to capture more of your family memories in the future!

Lily Laidlaw
Lily Laidlaw
Owner and Principal Photographer at Lily Laidlaw Photography

“All you need is love”… and a photographer who can help you compose and orchestrate the best possible image.

I am a true romantic and have been enthralled with love, weddings, and profound human connection for as long as I can remember.

I currently reside in Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, Canada, but have significant wanderlust and feel honored that that my career as a professional photographer enables me to work on-location shooting destination weddings, elopements, and other important milestones.

I’ve always enjoyed connecting with people and watching them evolve and believe that this is why my transition to photography has been a natural one. My love for artistry and transformations first began as a musician and music teacher, and eventually, it led me to pursue a new medium, which is capturing the beauty of human emotion through my lens. My dedication and discipline to the arts and to teaching provide me with innate skills to direct and pose my clients in order to create the best possible image, while also leaving space to observe and capture meaningful spontaneous moments.

Does this sound like your perfect match? Contact me so we can start planning something truly amazing!
