    The best possible experience with a photographer

    We found Simply Wedding Photography through theweddingring.ca's Kitchener-Waterloo Wedding Expo. We were drawn to her booth because it was the only one we had seen that displayed photos of queer weddings and we were eager to find someone who we didn't have to explain ourselves to or worry about feeling uncomfortable with. We also liked how natural her photography looked compared to the more dramatic styles other photographers gravitated towards.

    From the moment we started talking to Jacquie we clicked. She is so easy to talk to and it really felt like she alligned with our vision for the big day. Then when we won the giveaway she was running for the show for a discount off one of her packages we were sold.

    Jacquie is the best, most efficient, thoughtful photographer I've ever worked with. She had the whole day thoroughly planned out (including a detailed list of how the family photos would be taken) but with time to spare so we didn't feel rushed. She kept us on schedule and reassured me constantly that we had lots of time to get everything done. She's easy to communicate with and so so good at making people feel at ease, including folks that have trouble smiling naturally in photos (my wife in particular) and also folks who are usually uncomfortable with having their photos taken. She is great at posing people in ways that look so natural, including the entire range of folks in our families from toddlers to retirees.  She's also great at finding the best locations in a given area. Jacquie and her second photographer Janine were also just so fun to spend time with and both our families and our wedding party remarked upon it. By the end of the wedding we genuinely felt like we would miss her company!

    We have had so many compliments on both our engagement photos and our wedding photos! We could tell from the engagement shoot that the wedding photos would be good but they surpassed our wildest expectations and we will cherish them for years to come.

    Thank you Simply Wedding Photography!

    Beautiful photography!

    My husband and I were very happy with the main owner/photographer’s services. She made us feel very confident and comfortable right from the get go. Weddings are very stressful and she was one less stress to have, as we could tell based on the professionalism, punctuality, and consistent friendliness we received. Our engagement photos and wedding photos were beautiful! We truly recommend Simply Wedding Photography to other bridal couples. You will not be disappointed.

    We truly appreciate the beautiful memories you helped captured for us.

    We could not have asked for a better photographer. We highly recommend Jacquie and Simply Wedding Photography. From our first meeting Jacquie offered to meet with us and came prepared and answered all of our questions. She was always quick to respond to all my questions or suggestions throughout the entire process. Even when she was away on vacation she took the time to respond to my email. It was wonderful to know that we had such a reliable, creative, and approachable person to help document our wedding day. On the day of our wedding Jacquie came early, was prepared and had a wonderful calming energy. She helped me feel beautiful and when I look at the wide array of photos she took for us, which she got back to us really quickly, I know we made the right decisions. If you are looking for a photographer that takes brilliant photographs and goes the extra mile to make you feel special, Jacquie is the one you are looking for. Thank you again! We truly appreciate the beautiful memories you helped captured for us.

    Jacquie was super flexible and open to all our crazy ideas and last minute adjustments. Everyone thought she had a great and fun personality and very pleased with her efficacy.
    Jacquie is professional, she took the time to get to know our wedding party members, and made sure to write down all the family members names that we wanted pictures with.

    Simply Wedding Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much!!!!! We had a great time Zandra. Your ladies and gentlemen were amazing. Your dress was so unique and beautiful. Thank you so much for including us in your day!

    Simply Wedding - Simply Amazing!

    Jacquie's work is simply amazing! Jacquie ensured that we got photos of each moment or person that we desired and was flexible to adjust to things that came up or changed throughout the day. It is evident that Jacquie has experience as a wedding photographer that was beneficial the entire day.

    Splendid Speedy Photos

    Everything went as expected. There was a good amount of flexibility in accommodating the various venues of our wedding and in the end we got (very speedily) some excellent photos. We were happy with the service.

    Our wedding experience with Simply Photography was nothing short of amazing! With planning a destination wedding on a cruise ship there are many factors that are unknown or very last minute. Having the peace of mind that we would have full coverage of our special day and reception was of utmost importance. The photography services offered by the cruise ship were extremely overpriced, by the hour, and we would have had no previous encounter with the photographer before the wedding day or proof of their work. This made bringing Jacquie on board a no brainer! We met with Jacquie to go over our contract and were provided with an outline to fill in for the wedding day. She created a photo list from the names of family and friends that we provided to her to guarantee that we would get a photo with each person who had joined us on the trip. She understands how fast your special day goes by and makes the most of her time behind the camera. This resulted in a seamless and effortless photo session immediately after the ceremony. She is such an easy going person who allows you to feel comfortable which in turn results in great photos! She was so professional, and captured so many amazing moments, both staged and candid. Not to mention she can handle the craziest of families...for an entire week!! Thank you so much Jacquie!

    In January2016, my daughter & I met Jacquie at a Wedding Show. Her dazzling smile, gorgeous display of pictures & her enthusiasm, helped to win us over! She was educated in answering- all my questions & offered to meet us, personally. She wasn't, here's my business card - call me. Jacquie was thorough, prompt & extremely helpful. After my daughter's accident, Jacquie was respectful of our privacy, offering us assistance & guidance. Planning became difficult, with a brain injury on our hands. However, Jacquie reassured me that we could get through & upto the wedding in October! On the big day - holiday Monday, finally here!! Jacquie & her assistant arrived on time, ready for action. She was very gracious, If my daughter needed breaks, we would take them. We did slow the pace & thanks to Jacquie & her assistant, we kept to a fairly tight schedule! Our whole day was successful, with many beautiful pictures that captured many memories for us. These included the wedding, the beautiful weather, our Gramma turning 100- to our ring bearers, displaying their charming 2 year old attitudes. I encourage, you all to open your hearts & minds, & experience a unique photographer with heart & creativity. It's been a pleasure.
