Such a Joy

Ray has fantastic energy and was a joy to work with. She made us feel comfortable during the shoot and explored exciting shots. The photos came out so beautifully and captured the moments of our perfect day.

Amazing!!! Fun!

Ray was amazing to work with and had such good ideas! Easy going, and so much fun to work with!!! I highly would recommend her to anyone for anything. Made us feel very comfortable and she’s very down to earth! Not a 10/10, a 100/10!!! We’re so in love with all our pictures, can’t thank you enough for capturing all these breath taking moments

Easy, Efficient, and Perfect!

Our wedding day experience was only made that much better by having Ray take out pictures! The photos turned out beautiful and she was very easy to work with. The actual process of taking the pictures was also so easy, she didn’t waste time but was able to get our pictures done fast and efficient, exactly what me and my husband were hoping for. She also stayed discreet, not getting in anyones way. I love our pictures and would book with Ray again!

You will not be disappointed with Ray! We did our engagement photos with her and we are both sort of awkward. 😂 but she made us feel very comfortable and was so easy going. We then got our photos and were pleased that we were able to choose our favourites. All directions were clear, it was easy to download and we felt her prices were extremely reasonable.

Quality of photos are amazing and we will be using these for our save the dates and wedding stuffs!

Absolutely Phenomenal

Ray Photography and Design is hands down the best photographer around. She is a pleasure to work with, very flexible, very kind, and helps to ease any “camera shyness” you may have. Her photos are stunning and her prices are very fair. The only problem we had was picking our favourites because we loved them all. If you want the most stunning wedding photos, pick her!
