Working with Gillian was so much fun! She is so patient,professional and knowledgeable. I love how passionate she is with her work and her personality helps capture the best moments. Thanks Gillian!



I am in love with the pictures! Thank you so so so much.



Gill made this experience one that I will never forget! My boyfriend and I were very nervous and reserved at first. She made us laugh and helped make us not look so awkward while posing! I got the photos back within a week of taking them and there is not a single one that I am not completely in love with! By far the best time I have had in a long time! Thank you for capturing our love so perfectly!

Wow! I am amazed with how beautiful our photos are! Gillian was very professional and friendly. She made the experience amazingly fun for my entire family. We felt very comfortable and at ease with her. She was able to get great shots without making any of us feel awkward. I cant even out put into words how great she was with my children, especially my shy son! If you are looking for a great photographer and an awesome experience, I definitely recommend Gillian Menzie Photography! You wont be disappointed!
