Lovely words from happy couples.
"Besides finalizing the venue for our wedding day, finding the perfect photographer was top of our list of wedding 'to-do' list. We reached out to our wedding planner, Caryn from As You Wish Weddings, for recommendations and reviewed each vendor's website. Blynda's page immediately stood out to us and so we reached out to her to get together. We were very impressed by her professionalism, but also really clicked with her. We truly enjoyed every interaction with Blynda! She's super sweet, bubbly and laughed at all of our lame jokes - so we knew that she would be perfect person to capture our day. From the the very beginning, Blynda was very flexible and accommodating - she met us in downtown Oakville when we were in town for a weekend from Toronto and came to our condo from Milton to shoot our engagement shots. We really appreciated that because we don't have a car, Blynda made everything very easy for us. We shot our engagement shoots in September and Blynda knew exactly when the sun would be setting and what time of day we should meet to get the perfect shots. She made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera, coaching us through the poses like she's done this with a hundred other couples. It was very natural and, honestly, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. What also impressed me about Blynda was that she came downtown to do a walk through of our venue and the downtown area to scope out photo locations ahead of our wedding day. I know that not every photographer does this and it definitely brought us comfort that everything would run smoothly on the day. In terms of the photos themselves, we absolutely adore both our engagement shots and wedding day shots. The moments, quality and sheer number of photos far surpassed our expectations. We also thought that she turned around the photos very quickly which was an added bonus! We jump at the opportunity to show them off and will treasure them and the memories they represent for a lifetime! We have already recommended Blynda to a couple of our friends and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her again! Paul and I look forward to working with her again in the future! Thank you Blynda!!! "

"Blynda was better then we imagined! She came highly recommended to us and that recommendation was nothing but the truth. Blynda did our engagement photo session and our wedding day. My husband and I had never had professional photos of the 2 of us taken before and we were kind of nervous about our engagement photo session. When Blynda got started that day, all our nerves slowly faded and she made us feel super comfortable and we had such a fun day with her! She is so talented but also just a great person in general. We really felt like we were friends with her by the end of the whole process. She Is super detail oriented and we can't wait to see the rest of our wedding photos! She gave us an incredible sneak peek just 3 days after our wedding, that blew us away! Blynda was one of our favorite vendors to work with and we'd gladly recommend her to anyone else!!"

"When we began planning our wedding, I knew I had a vision for our photos that I wanted to achieve. While looking through the Elegant Wedding magazine, one spread in particular caught my attention for it's beautifully captured images that were light, airy and extremely romantic. I immediately contacted the photographer to learn about her services and it was one of the best decisions we made while planning our day. Blynda was the first vendor we met and secured. She was extremely warm and welcoming, immediately soothing our stress and concerns about planning a wedding in a little under a year. She answered all of our question, and believe me my fiancé asked her everything under the sun. Throughout the process Blynda offered us guidance from selecting a beautiful location for our engagement pictures, as well as the location for our wedding pictures to providing us with a day-of timeline that allowed us to plan several other aspects of our wedding day. As two people who have never been professionally photographed, Blynda had us giggling and relaxing within a few minutes. She met with us to do a walk through of our venue and the park we would be using for photos that day. On the wedding day, Blynda kept us calm and cool on a particularly hot day and accommodated all of our requests. We cannot rave enough about this lovely woman and the work she does. Thank you Blynda!!"

"Really hard to find the words of appreciation for all the work Blynda has done for our little family. The moment I met her I knew she was the perfect photographer for our wedding. And we couldn't be happier with both our engagement/family photos and wedding day photos. We have definitely found our photographer for future maternity pictures and family. Absolute joy to work with and worth every penny. Thanks so much Blynda - I truly feel like I made a life long friend in meeting you. "

"All we can say is that Blynda is truly an amazing photographer but also a wonderful person! Blynda was recommended to us by a friend, Teisha Hunt, I'm so glad Teisha recommended her to us. Geordie and I have never had professional pictures done so when we had our engagement session we were both a little nervous. Blynda was so good at making us relax and by the end we were having so much fun! Blynda was helpful throughout the whole wedding planning, giving us tips which really helped out. Geordie and I really appreciated the attention to detail that Blynda has and it shows in her work. Blynda's partner on our wedding day, was also so wonderful to work with! Our wedding was two weeks ago and we already received a sneak peak and the photos are just beautiful! We can't express how thankful we are to have had Blynda photograph our special day. We will definitely be using her again in the future and we highly recommend her as a photographer."

“We could not have chosen a better photographer to capture our wedding. We found Blynda through an online search and at first, we were unsure about going with someone whom we did not know very well. During our initial meeting with her however, we instantly connected and were particularly impressed with her ability to both listen and respect our needs as clients. Blynda’s positive attitude and highly organized approach to her work before, during and after our event was very evident and we appreciated this in a photographer given how busy, and often times, chaotic wedding planning can be! She responded to all of our questions in a timely manner, provided a tremendous amount of guidance leading up to the wedding (e.g. logistics, site visits, back-up locations, etc.) and remained professional at all times. Blynda uses a great deal of creativity in her photography and adds her personal touch to the final product. As a result, our pictures came out stunning! We were really impressed with how smooth the entire experience was from start to finish and are excited for the opportunity to use her services again!”

"One of the best decisions we made was to have Blynda photograph our wedding day. She is so talented and creative and we could not have been happier with our pictures. She captured every special moment we had envisioned and we are amazed every time we look at our wedding and engagement pictures. Not only is she a great photographer, Blynda is also flexible, professional and very organized. She has such a bright personality and a positive attitude and made us feel comfortable from the moment we first met her. She is such a pleasure to work with! I would recommend Blynda to anyone looking for an all-around amazing photographer!"

“Amongst the chaos of wedding planning, working with Blynda was effortless. She is a professional in all aspects. Her knowledge of the industry along with her positive and bright personality made our planning and wedding day so enjoyable. On the wedding day, Blynda was exceptionally organized. She coordinated all the photos perfectly, and nothing was missed. After receiving our photos we were amazed by the quality of the images. Her style is very creative, but still timeless. She captured every detail that I had planned. Blynda is a beautiful person, and it shows through her passion for photography.”
Amanda & Jamie
“We are so glad that the photography path of our wedding led us to someone as amazing as you! You are incredibly talented, organized and detail oriented yet you have this adaptable, enthusiastic and warm personality that made us feel comfortable right away. You captured all our memories so beautifully at both our Indian and Catholic ceremonies! Thank you so much for our guestbook, albums, thank you cards and most importantly our photos – they were absolutely perfect!”
Megha & Matt
"Rachel Clingen recommended Blynda to us for our wedding in August 2015 and we can't express how glad we are that she did. We can't say enough great things about Blynda! She is a talented photographer who is professional and genuinely a great person. The day wouldn't have been the same without her and we love how she captured every special moment and detail of our wedding. In addition to our online album, we also LOVE the hard cover album that she created for us! The pictures were chosen and laid out perfectly, while the quality of the album itself looks great."
