    Authentic Photos

    Cass at Wildhearts Studio is incredible. My husband and I are big into the outdoors, hiking and nature. We also love and value candid photos over super posey and traditional wedding photos. Cass worked with our vision and brought it to life. Our engagement session was fantastic and she truly captured all of the fun moments and made the whole experience relaxing (even though we were being eaten to death by mosquitoes). On our wedding day she kept everyone at ease, and captured all of our events in their true authenticity. The colours, the candids, the fact that the photos were so "us" was just everything we could have hoped for. Cass is a dream to work with. We can't wait to have her continue documenting our lives in the future.

    Highly Recommend!!

    We are so happy with our decision to have Wildhearts Studio capture our wedding day! Could not be more pleased with our experience and how the photos turned out. I still love looking at them. Cass was great from the very start. She replied quickly and was eager to get to know us. Leading up to our engagement shoot, I was concerned about the weather (it ended up being fine), but Cass showed up with these beautiful clear umbrellas with twinkling lights in them just in case. It showed how much she cared about my concerns. On our wedding day, she arrived on time and got right to work! Some of my favourite photos from our album are the candid ones of me getting ready that I didn’t even know she was taking. Overall, we are very pleased with the entire album, and I would recommend Wildhearts Studio to anyone looking to book!! Thanks for everything, Cass!

    Won the lottery with Wildhearts Studio

    We won the lottery choosing Wildhearts studio as our wedding photographer! Cass is super friendly and did an excellent job at creating such a welcoming and comfortable environment for my husband and I who are quite camera shy! She ensured that she was getting all the best shots and angles and made us feel super comfortable with posing by directing us in a way where we didn’t feel nervous or awkward!
    Cass was super responsive with emails and always willing to talk things through to really understand our vision and to help us create a list of all the shots we wanted to get with the guests we wanted to get them with!

    Incredible!

    Absolutely incredible experience and would use their services again in a heartbeat! Hopefully not for my own wedding:p but for anything photography related haha.

    Cassandra was a delight to work with. She was down to earth, positive and so enjoyable to be around. My husband and I tend to hide from a camera and she made the experience really comfortable for us and we had many laughs
    Throughout the process!

    From engagement photos to wedding day photos, Cassandra was amazing and we are forever grateful for the role she played in our story❤️

    Brittney & Michael you guys are INCREDIBLE! These words are so sweet, it made my day! I am truly feeling the love, and am so grateful for everything! You two are such a dream to work with and get to know! I cannot express enough how blessed I feel to have documented your love. Your wedding day was so gorgeous and such a fun, personalized event - my second photographer and I had an amazing time. Everyone made us feel like family by the end of the day, which we could not feel more honoured by. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wish you and Michael nothing but the very best for the future, lot's more joys to come. Please do keep in touch!

    Wildhearts Studio

    Cassandra was absolutely amazing! She photographed my wedding in May. My husband and I do not like our picture being taken, but with her we felt completely at ease. During our ceremony and dinner, she was very unintrusive, I had no idea my picture was being taken.
    Cassandra is the sweetest girl, as well as professional, courteous and timely. She was quick to respond to all my emails and answered all of my questions. She is very open to any ideas or concepts of what her clients want and has many fun ways of making your shoot a unique experience. Our photos all turned out beautifully, I couldn't be happier with them and all Cassandra did for us!
    Thank you Wildhearts!! ♡

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Thank you so so much Rhonda! Having the opportunity to photograph your big day was truly a pleasure. It was an honour to work with the two of you and be there for you both and such an incredible moment of your life. I am very excited to see what else life has in store for you two and of course, I would love to continue to be there for you during these moments. Keep in touch Rhonda, I'll see you around for sure! Sending love!

    Amazing photos for amazing value!

    We would definitely recommend Wildhearts Studio to friends and family! Cassandra made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and helped capture the love that we share for one another and our dog! We will cherish these moments, memories and photos forever thanks to Cassandra. Her prices are very reasonable, with an unexpected amount of amazing photos in return!

    Amazing Photographs!

    Cassandra is an excellent photographer, my boyfriend and I have done a couple of photoshoots with her. We are not normally people who take a lot of photos ourselves so it's really great having these stunning edits. She has a great balance of encouraging specific poses that photograph well while simultaneously allowing for some impromptu/candid moments in her photo shoots! I cannot recommend her highly enough, she clearly knows what she is doing, is very professional and gets everything back to you in a reasonable time frame. We have done two different locations with her and she takes the time to scope out areas beforehand and figure out lighting etc. that works in the specific space. I love our couple photo shoots and would not hesitate to book her for a future engagement/wedding shoot! Overall amazing work, you will not regret hiring her you definitely get high quality for a very reasonable price point.

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Gab you are so sweet - I appreciate not only your review but all your love and support! I love the photo sessions I have with you and Scott, the two of you are so adorable and are always up for all my creative suggestions! I am looking forward to many more photo session with you. Be sure to keep in touch, you know how to reach me!

    An Exceptional Photographer, Capturing our Journey

    “We met Cassandra in 2017, when we decided to do a couples photoshoot so we could finally have some nice photos of us together that weren't blurry or taken with the front-facing side of an iPhone. We were surprised with some rain in Niagara-on-the-Lake but the photos still turned out spectacularly. When we got engaged last year, it was an easy decision to ask Cassandra to capture our special day. We received our engagement photos a few months ago and are still swooning over them. She made it fun and easy. Captured our personalities and went above and beyond to make the day special! Can't wait to have her capture our wedding in 2020 and all the milestones that follow!”

    - Kenzie & Thomas

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Thank you so much Kenzie + Thomas! You two are the sweetest and I cannot wait to capture your beautiful wedding in August 2020! Congratulations again! I look forward to many more fun times, laughs, and lots of love. Keep in touch! :)

    Photographer of joy!

    Our ceremony day was not typical (just us, no guests, outdoors, wintertime), so we were uncertain about even having a photographer at all. However, when I happened across some photographs by Cassandra of Wildhearts Studio, I was impressed and decided to contact her. I’m so glad I did! She has a wonderful enthusiasm and approachability balanced with a professionalism that put us at ease throughout the whole process. She created a custom package to suit our unusual day, and even signed as one of our witnesses! After the ceremony, Cassandra was brilliant at guiding the photo shoot; she really knew how to bring out the best energy in us! Her cues had us moving and laughing for many wonderful dynamic shots, and warm and relaxed for the more posed ones - and it was all genuine! As people who are usually quite uncomfortable being the centre of attention, we never expected we’d have so much pure, joyous fun being photographed! That authentic joy and emotion really shines through in the final images, something we we struck by when we first saw them, and again each and every time we look at them. Cassandra created for us not only precious photographs, but treasured memories as well!

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Thank kindly Stefanie & Joshua -- you both are so sweet, I greatly appreciate your amazing review! I had an absolutely incredible time photographing your sweet intimate ceremony and getting to know you both. You two made for some really fun subjects and I will cherish this experience forever! Thanks for being so wonderful! I wish you both nothing but the very best in your life's adventures together. Please do keep in touch, I'd love to be there for more milestones in the future. Sending love!
