How can I even begin to express the gratitude my husband and I have towards Anastasia of Olive Photography? From the moment my husband and I met Anastasia there was no doubt that we wanted her to photograph our wedding day. Hiring Anastasia was – hands down – the best decision we made for our wedding day. Not only is Anastasia an exceptionally talented photographer, she exudes warmth, professionalism, and passion for her clients and her work. She has a contagiously positive attitude that instantly put my husband and I at ease. She’s an artist through and through; the proof is evident in her work. My husband and I can’t stop beaming over how wonderfully Anastasia documented our wedding day (and our engagement photo shoot!). Anastasia captured our story so perfectly and effortlessly. We highly recommend Anastasia of Olive Photography to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer – you won’t be disappointed! 🙂

Notice to any newly engaged couples, expecting parents, or anyone in need of a photographer: look no further! I recently got married this past October in Niagara-on-the-Lake to my best friend, and I can honestly say the day would have been so different had Anastasia and her colleague Gillian, not been there. Overall, I found planning the wedding to be so much fun…but the only stressful part: finding the right photographer! I was so overwhelmed by the variety of vendors in the GTA. I mean, it’s wonderful to have so many talented people to choose from, but I just wanted a photographer that I knew was talented, professional and dependable. To me, the photos and the video are some of the most important aspects of a wedding. Anastasia was all I was looking for and more. From the moment I met her at the Toronto Bridal show, to her welcoming my husband and I into her home for our consultation, to her delivering our wedding album, she has been nothing short of wonderful. We feel truly blessed to have had her play such a huge role in capturing one of the best days of our lives, and she did so with such poise, thoughtfulness and patience. The photos we received still bring us to tears (happy tears), as they perfectly captured the emotions we experienced on our special day. Anastasia, I know I have thanked you one thousand times, but now it’s one thousand and one times – thank you for bringing us so much joy. I love and respect what you do so much. I would highly recommend you to anyone for any occasion! xx

We found Anastasia through online wedding blogs. Her company name caught our attention as our dog’s name is Olive, but her photography style is what really attracted us. We knew she was the right photographer after we met with her. Anastasia is just the most kind-hearted, down-to-earth and genuine person you will ever meet. I think in any sales related industry you can meet a lot of people that are fake nice. Anastasia is not one of those people. She is so dedicated to making you feel relaxed and comfortable and you can tell she truly loves what she does. We walked away feeling like we had just spent the day hanging out with an old friend. She was so quick to get photos too us afterwards and they were amazing! On our wedding day it was so great to have her calming presence around but she was also so professional. She was able to guide everyone through photos efficiently keeping us on time and was practically invisible during the ceremony & reception getting photos of everything like a photog-ninja! We highly recommend Anastasia/Olive Photography for photos of any life events!

Anastasia captured our wedding day beautifully. She photographs in a way that brings everything to life- she exudes so much warmth, light, and joy, all of which seem to flow through each image 🙂 It was amazing to be able to relive some moments while seeing others for the first time! A truly invaluable gift. Anastasia was incredible to work with – she gave us direction, made being photographed all day easy and fun, kept us on time, and even helped me put my veil on! Thank you for working so hard to capture all the big moments and little details- so grateful to have these memories for a lifetime.

From the moment I met Anastasia, I knew I was in good hands. It was a freezing cold winter day and I walked into the coffee shop only to meet one of the friendliest and sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Anastasia’s warm and calm personality made us feel at ease on our wedding day and translated into absolutely stunning shots. We, along with our friends and family, could not be happier with the photos we received and have been blown away by the creativity and quality of the pictures. She has given us beautiful, lasting memories of our big day and we can’t thank her enough!!!
Ike & Susan
I truly stand by a 5-star rating across the board. Anastasia of Olive Photography was absolutely amazing to work with. She had an innate ability to encourage everyone to be their best in front of the camera, even with someone as camera shy as me. While other photographers simply directs, she motivates her subjects to the perfect picture every time. She was even able to get my dad to smile, a notorious “no smiley face” guy!
Part of why she’s amazing was the infectious enthusiasm she exuded during shoots and even review meetings. We couldn’t help share in her excitement when inspiration struck her or she was able find a picture that tied into our personal interests.
As a professional, few can match her standards. She replied promptly, sent out kind follow-ups when we ourselves forgot to respond, always took our calls when we had questions, among many other things. All of the above qualities truly make Anastasia a consummate professional I whole-heartedly recommend.
Meghan & Matt
I cannot begin to put into words how much I loved working with Anastasia and how amazingly talented she is as a photographer and artist. Her pictures captured the story of our wedding day perfectly. Every emotion and precious moment was caught allowing us to relive that day over and over every time my husband and I look at them. My family and friends have been raving about the pictures as well, we are just so blown away by their beauty and warmth. Anastasia is truly wonderful and her pictures are so full of love and life. Her passion for what she does shines through not only on her pictures but in her enthusiastic personality throughout the day keeping everyone feeling relaxed and having a great time. I cannot thank her enough for the amazing gift she has given us!!
Ashley & Jalal

Where do we even begin? Your wedding photos are what you’ll have as the years go by, and you want them to be remarkable. Finding Anastasia to photograph our wedding was a huge score and she delivered in every way. Not only do you get someone who has an eye for that great shot, but also you’ll feel like you are hanging out with a life long friend. She has a charm about her that puts you at ease and makes it fun. Anastasia listens to what you like, don’t like, provides suggestions you’d never had figured out on your own, and she is quick to respond to any questions. She was an asset to your wedding team. Many of our guests made a point to tell us how wonderful, friendly, and fun she was.
The bonus, we reunited a lost cat with its owner after missing several weeks. How many photographers do you get to do that with?
Scarlett & Atul
It was a pleasure working with Anastasia for our engagement photoshoot. Her cheerful personality definitely made the session enjoyable for nervous and camera-shy newbies like us. The composition and the lighting of those photos are purely artistic and may I say, magically romantic to us too! What really makes the photos timeless was how they captured the wonderful and natural moments between us, and I think we fell in love with ourselves even more, after seeing her works, LOL . We are also very impressed at her efficiency and more importantly thankful for her flexibility in going the extra mile to accommodate us. My fiance and I were so thrilled when we got the photos that we literally stayed up over night and went over those photos over and over!! We love them!
Shelley & Dave
We worked with Anastasia for our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier with them both. We’ve received endless compliments on her photos and we can’t wait to get them printed and framed so we can display them around our home. Anastasia is a wonderful person to work with – she’s fantastic at putting you at ease, trying new things and capturing all the special moments along the way. She has a great eye for what will make a photo pop, and the results are always truly unique, beautiful photos. Our wedding day was perfect and having Anastasia there made sure that the magic of the day is captured so we can remember it for many years to come.
Paula & Kevin
Anastasia is professional, talented and creative. From our first email, to our first meeting and finally our wedding day, she always remained so attentive to our needs,ideas and concerns. Her bright personality resonates through her work. Her photos are only of the highest quality worthy to be in any magazine and online forum like Pinterest. She edits her work in such a short amount of time-only within a few short weeks so you don’t have to wait long to relive your special event! I stumbled across her webpage by accident and I am so grateful to have found her. With confidence I can truly say that Olive Photography can capture so many precious moments for any special occasion-prenatal shoots, baptisms, birthdays, weddings and so much more. I only have positive things to say about our experience with working with Anastasia. This is only the beginning of our relationship with Olive Photography as I will be looking forward to working closely with her in future milestone events! Thanks Anastasia for all your dedication and hard work.
Stephanie & Brian
Anastasia is absolutely amazing! She is professional, personable, fun and extremely talented! Anastasia beautifully captured our engagement photos and wedding day and we are thrilled with each and every photo! Anastasia goes above and beyond expectations every time, she truly surpassed our expectations for a photographer. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we are so lucky to have found her!
Kashfia + Arber
Anastasia is a talented photographer who went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience. I loved how my ceremony and wedding photos turned out! She was a pleasure to work with and blended in so easily with my family and guests, that it seemed as if she had known us all for years. Anastasia was always professional, responsive and very easy to contact. Place your trust in her, and she will deliver stunning results.
Meagan & Adriano
Once again, Anastasia surpassed my highest expectations for our wedding photos. She also did our engagement photos, and didn’t think I could be anymore pleased with her level of professionalism, friendliness, kindness, and generosity, but she completely blew us away for our wedding.
From the moment she met us at the salon for getting ready photos, until she left well into the evening reception, she was truly amazing. SO helpful, aiding this stressed out bride to be in lugging items from room to room, all the while capturing amazing shots to help me fully remember the day. She can be seen in our wedding video tapping her foot in time to the music while taking photos of us and our guests dancing, obviously enjoying herself as well!
I cannot recommend her enough. You will most definitely not be disappointed if you choose to have her capture the most special moments of your lives on (digital) film. As mentioned in my previous review, I will definitely be using her in all future special moments we need captured!!
Celso + Eini
Choosing Olive Photography to capture our wedding, was one of the best decisions we made. Not only was Anastasia prompt and professional, but she was absolutely wonderful to work with. She constantly checked with us to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Even after the wedding, the hard work and responsiveness have not lagged at all. Looking at our wedding photos now, we’re thrilled that she knew where to be for all the key moments and was able to capture them perfectly. Olive Photography is the way to go if you’re looking for a professional, personable and enthusiastic photographer for your event.

Anastasia is a wonderful, professional, and extremely personable photographer.
With her, the pre-wedding process was surprisingly easy. She was always very easy to get in touch with and open to ideas that I presented to her. She single-handedly orchestrated our “first look” photos, which was a deeply intimate and special moment for my husband and I.
She has incredible people skills and even got my poker-faced uncle to crack a smile for one of my favourite family portraits. Most importantly, Anastasia kept a cool head during the chaos of the wedding day. She was very cordial, especially with my family members that were a little more than over-excited, but was not afraid to go to great lengths to get the perfect shot.
Her photographs beautifully captured our special day, while adding her unique perspective and flair. I have poured through these photos over and over again and cannot be happier with how they turned out!
Denise & Mark
What can I say?? Each and every picture is beautiful!! I cannot thank you enough for always being so kind and great with everything. Mark and I love you so much!!! We are totally comfortable with you and your ability to make us look great (which is something not just anyone can do!)
You have captured the simple, beautiful love and happiness we wanted to have at our wedding. At the end of the day I felt like it went by so fast and easily. Thank you thank you thank you. Looking forward to more photo sessions together.
Yifan & Olivier
Working with Anastasia for our wedding photography was wonderful!!!!!! Anastasia was incredibly professional, produced beautiful pictures, but even more than that…she actually made our wedding day really special. She is truly talented at capturing the moment, capturing the feeling and capturing the mood. She was so easy to work with and a lot of fun too. We instantly felt at ease with her and it was like having a friend of the family take pictures at our wedding. The photos are absolutely lovely!!! Gorgeous!!! She did a spectacular job and it was such a pleasure to work with her!
Jessica & Carlos
Anastasia is fantastic to work with! She gets right in the midst of the action and isn’t afraid to try something new. Her bubbly personality makes her a breeze to get along with…she’s firm enough to direct the shot but also sweet enough to make you genuinely laugh and smile while she captures the moment. She’s also honest when it comes to her shots…she wants you to look your best and will politely tell you if a certain angle or pose isn’t working in your favor. Trust me, this is extremely helpful to the 99.9% of us who don’t do modeling work and I was grateful for the guidance. I would highly recommend booking Anastasia for your engagement or wedding photos, sooner rather than later because I have a feeling this woman is going to make a big name for herself in the industry.
Rackell + Daniel
Anastasia was just fantastic!! She is one special person let me tell you! not only does she produce wonderful pictures, but she really tries to help you out throughout your stressful day. I strongly recommend Olive Photography to anyone who is looking for great value, pictures and a great experience!
Catherine + Alex
Anastasia is professional, personable and incredibly talented. We took our engagement photos with her this past week and it was a joy working with her. She made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera, which translated into beautiful and personal photos. She was very timely responding to our emails and phone calls and edited and returned our photos to us very quickly as well. Anastasia is so positive and fun to work with. We are thrilled that she will be joining us to photograph our wedding on September 5!
Now that we have worked with Anastasia on our wedding, we can say again that she is incredible to work with! Our wedding photos are so special and we loved having her be a part of our day. She captured the feeling of the day beautifully and was a pleasure to work with. We are thrilled with our wedding photos!
Joel + Chantelle
The results of our engagement photos surpassed our expectations. Anastasia’s photography skills are amazing, and her light heart allows anyone to feel comfortable enough to be themselves around her; which helps when capturing real moments. When we mentioned what angles we personally preferred she was able to quickly adapt to our request, and carried herself with great humility. She made the experience more than just a photo shoot; probing us to remember how we fell in love. She is amazing!
My photo shoot with Anastasia was a wonderful experience. She took the time to make sure I got the shots I needed and made me feel comfortable and involved throughout the entire process. I now use the photo I chose from my shoot with Anastasia as my main headshot. And feel confident in submitting it to casting directors and Agents. I would strongly recommend inquiring with Olive Photography for all your professional and personal needs.
