    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!

    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❤️

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    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!

    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!

    Nothing but praise for Wildhearts studio

    I have known cassandra for a very long time. Long enough that I remember when she got her first fancy camera back in grade school and we would take photos of her dog dressed up. Arts and Photography have been a passion for Cassandra since childhood, when choosing which highschool she wanted to attend the one that offered photography (and hockey) beat out the others. That passion shines through to this day in every project she takes on.

    When Cassandra attended Sheridan she often used me as a subject in front of the camera. As someone who never used to feel comfortable in front of the camera, Cassandra had a way of putting me at ease and helping me pose even when taking on more obscure / artsy projects. Modelling for Cassandra in the cold weather or even powdered milk filled kiddie pools was a blast and the results turned out amazing in those college days.

    Although she is flexible and can adapt to whatever project you may have in mind, Cassandra has found her niche in couple photography, really thriving in capturing clients in natural elements. She has taken on personal projects for me such as family portraits, multiple couple shoot with my boyfriend, and shooting my brothers celebration of marriage party. With each of these projects everyone involved was beyond satisfied. She has a way of capturing happiness in couples and families so naturally.

    As a client and as a friend of Cassandra, I can guarantee she is the photographer of dreams. She truly is one of the most radiant people, and it will show both in her interactions with you, and in the photographs she produces.

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Alex, you are AMAZING!! Thank you so so much, your words mean everything to me! I am so lucky to have someone by my side who's experienced my growth in my photography journey. You had me giggling and smiling while reading this. You've truly been around since I first picked up a camera, and honestly I can't imagine what I'd be working towards without photography. I absolutely love what I do, and of course, I ADORE my photoshoots with you no matter what the theme is. I look forward to many more sessions with you. It's an honour to be able to document your life's most special moments, whether it's a causal giggly session, a fun-loving couple session, an adventure session, family session, or I'm experimenting with new photographic ideas, and anything that's to come in the future. Sending the warmest of wishes your way! Thank you!

    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!

    Great Experience!

    We first met Cassandra at the beginning of 2019 when we were booking our November wedding. At that point she had only done a handful of weddings, but you'd never know it! Cassandra was prompt, professional, flexible, and overall great to work with. The photos from our engagement shoot looked excellent, and she was flexible and helpful when it came to selecting a location and time that would work and make us look our best. When the big day came, every photo looked fantastic and she went above and beyond in the sheer amount of quality imaged we received from that day. We'd be hard pressed to find a photographer who offers this level of service, and has so much fun doing it. It's always so much fun to see what new moments she's captured!

    Wildhearts Studio's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Patrick and Marisha! You two are so sweet and not to mention a dream to work with! I had such a wonderful time getting to know the two of you and am so thankful to be there for you during such a lovely celebration. I wish you both the very best and more -- please do keep in touch! Thanks so much for everything!
