How do I even begin to speak about my amazing experience working with these two wonderful women? From our first conversation, I knew I was in for not only a great experience, but a lasting one. Liz and Cassandra are one of kind type of people. They are passionate about each other and life, they come from the heart and they know how to have a good time. When I first met with Liz to learn about her wedding, I knew almost instantly I wanted to be a part of their day. She shared visions of games, celebrations, playful events that surrounded their day, and a lot of fun, relaxed vibes with their family/friends at Camp Chief Hector. Not only did they deliver, they went above and beyond.
Their wedding took place on a crisp fall day in October of 2016. The weather had a lot of snow and rain in the forecast, but none of it came to pass. Their day was sunny, warm and full of light, fun vibes. I really can not choose one aspect of their day that was a favourite. Their whole day, and the time we worked together has been very memorable and special to me. Today, they are so much more than clients to me, they are friends.
Here are my favourite images from their winter engagement session along hwy 93 north, and their incredible wedding at Camp Chief Hector. Liz and Cassandra, it was beyond a gift to work with you both. I am so glad we met. Every time I look at the photos we made together it leaves me warm and smiling. I know you two will make it through anything life throws at you. It was honour to be a part of this time in your lives.
Liz and Cassandra were kind enough to share a testimonial of their time with me. Thank you so much for your words!
"When my wife and I got engaged we sat down and discussed what we were unwilling to compromise on and mutually agreed that photos are the most important thing as that is what you get to keep and cherish forever (second only to each other of course). After pouring through literally thousands of photos and hundreds of photographers we decided on the incomparable Jody Goodwin. She is an expert at capturing the breathtaking beauty of nature and has an incredible eye for candid moments and catching pure joy on film.
From the moment we first spoke with Jody we knew we had made the right decision. She truly loves what she does and cares an incredible amount for the people she works with. Jody is one of the most kind, talented, genuine human beings we have ever met and we felt comfortable working with her immediately. She exudes excitement, love and light that creates an infectious atmosphere of fun that makes being photographed feel effortless. My wife and I don't typically love having our picture taken but I mean it when I say we would happily have Jody take our picture any day!
Our wedding day was full of chaos due to an enormous bridal party and being surrounded by an incredible team of people working to get all of us ready so I didn't think I would have many getting ready photos (which I was okay with) but somehow Jody swept in and made the chaos look like calm and managed to catch so many beautiful moments that we will cherish for years to come. While looking at our photos we were overwhelmed with emotion as our wedding day memories came flooding back because every single photo is dripping with our personalities, is filled with the people we love and moments we didn't even realize she was there for. She even caught me ugly crying during our wedding vows (trust me...it was bad haha) and managed to make it look pretty! Now THAT is worth it's weight in gold.
We couldn't be more thankful that we met Jody and have her in our lives. We have received endless compliments on our photos and have had numerous friends tell us they wish they had found her for theirs. If there is one thing you can splurge on for your wedding and know that you will never regret it, it's Jody Goodwin Photography. Not only will you have the gift of breathtaking images from the happiest day of your life but you will likely gain a new friend as a bonus. BEST. PHOTOGRAPHER. EVER." ~ Liz and Cassandra
