“We’ve used Focused Photography to capture all of our most special moments.  Engagement, Wedding, Maternity, and baby photos.  Jillian & Deb’s photography skills are great! They’re professional, but make you feel like you are working with a close friend.  Their extensive experience helped us better understand our timeline for wedding pictures, and returned our photos in a timely manor after every photo shoot.  I would not hesitate to recommend Focused Photography to any of my closest friends(or random strangers). “

“We had such a great experience with Jillian at our engagement shoot. I’m pretty nervous when it comes to getting my picture taken but Jillian made things 100% easier for me. She was professional, funny, very nice and patient :) There couldn’t be a better photographer for us! We are going to recommend her to everyone we can! Can’t wait until our wedding! Also, we did them Sunday and by Monday night we had them! Best photographer ever!”





Leah & Peter

“I had a blast during the photoshoot with my horse Kash! Jill captured awesome movement shots of him free in the arena, amazing portrait shots, and unique closeup shots of him like his eyes. I can’t wait do it all over again in the spring and summer! I highly recommend Jill and look forward to working with her again :0)”

“Focused Photography did a wonderful job capturing our newborn baby’s personality in every shot. The pictures were adorable and beautiful.

“Laura and I had our wedding on June 26, 2010. Focused Photography did a great job. Jill did an excellent job at all of the preparation work. She was not available that day, so Phill did our wedding photos. Phill did a glorious job.

We were fully satisfied with our photos. They turned out great. Focused Photography was easy to deal with and made the day that much better. We would highly recommend this company to anyone.”





Mike & Laura McKearney


“Our wedding was on Sept 1, 2007 and it was a perfect day. The beautiful pictures that Jillian took remind us of our happy day everytime we look at them. We had a great time shooting and everyone was so comfortable with the photographer.

We got excatly what we wanted and our requests were also met. We were really happy with the outcome and we would recommend Focused Photography to anyone who has a special day they want captured.”



Izabela Zarzycka-Vogt

“The first time we had Jill photograph anything was my mom’s wedding in December of 2009. The picture’s turned out amazing! She had wonderful, creative ideas, and made everyone feel very comfortable. She even let us all request something that we wanted to be photographed(and there were a lot of people with their own ideas :) ).

In September 2010, she again did photographs of my two children, which she was very patient and kind, considering one was sick, and the other was only 3 1/2 months old. And as of October 2011, we are very pleased and excited to have her as our wedding photographer.

I know that having her there as our photographer, we’ll definetly have picture’s that will capture everything and more that we would want to remember about our special day, and we can’t wait! Thanks Jill for your truely beautiful work!”

“Jill photographed our one year old daughter! Jill came very prepared, had lots of great and fun ideas and worked well with our daughter. She did a fantastic job capturing our little girl’s personality and the photos are adorable!”




Kay Saint

“Jill did a great job with our maternity photos. She made it easy to feel comfortable showing off my very pregnant belly and delivered pictures that were classy and totally captured exactly what we were hoping for. Jill has a great eye for poses and we were happy to receive a large number of picture options to choose from in the end.

Jill’s prices are affordable and aren’t over the top like so many other photographers out there. We are looking forward to Jill’s excellent photography skills later on in the year when she photographs our upcoming wedding. Thanks again Jill for being so easy to work with and giving us great pictures to always remember our first pregnancy!”


Kelly Fraser

“Jill is an excellent photographer. She listens to and acts on her clients’ needs and desires plus provides wonderful suggestions. A consumate professional, Jill was able to combine her love of photography and modelling recently in Cambridge’s Welcome Wagon Bridal Showcase on October 4, 2010 at The Armenian Community Centre.

She was an audience favourite! Jill is a beautifully wonderful person–inside and out. Focused Photography is an absolute find to people seeking beautiful pictures they will treasure and enjoy for years.”



Susan Casey


“It’s been over 2 years since our wedding but I still look back on our photos and have a huge smile on my face. You captured that day beautifully and I think you very much. You were very professional! Super fast at getting our proofs back to us – when we got back from our honeymoon they were ready! Thank you again for the great pictures. I will cherish them forever!”






Joanne Spylo

“Jillian was an excellent photographer! We were fortunate enough to find her, especially on such short notice! We only gave her 2 weeks notice and she even managed to get engagement pictures in.

We were impressed with how she listened to our input and even allowed us to use some of our own poses. You went over and beyond our expectations and we appreciate everything! We definitely recommend her services! Thanks again Jillian!!”



Samantha Keith

“We can’t say enough about our wonderful wedding day, with Jillian capturing every moment! She fit right into the festivities, making sure that we got every special shot to remember our day. She can make joy come to life through the lens of a camera and because of her talent, our memories will be more vivid than we ever could have hoped. We recommend her without hesitation.”

“**We absolutely LOVE our pictures ~ thanks so much!!**”


Jenn & Jeff Moore


“Our wedding was on July 24th, 2010 and Focused Photography was there to capture the day.
We couldn’t have picked a better person for the job. Jillian’s promptness, efficiency, and professionalism were outstanding.

Our pictures turned out absolutely amazing! Everyone had a great time during the photo shoot and Jillian made sure we kept on track!

Everything that we had planned for pictures was captured and then Jillian went even further and exceeded our expectations.

Jillian was not only thoroughly professional, but was also very easy to talk to and focused on our needs and desires for our special day.

We would recommend Focused Photography to anyone who would like an amazing photographer and a great experience.”



Dan & Ashley Lundrigan

“Many thanks to Jill for helping us create the best day possible and making sure we remember it that way with her excellent pictures.

We recently got married and the day was perfect. Most people want that for their wedding day but we all know sometimes it doesn’t go to plan. Fortunately for us it really was the perfect day and we will always remember it as such thanks to Jill and her abilities at Focused Photography.

In fact we were so impressed with how Jill was able to fit right in with the ceremony, guests and capture the moment for us to remember. We have been to many weddings and seen the occasion spoiled by a photographer getting in the way, bossing guests and wedding couples around all just to get the “perfect pose”.

Jill came well prepared for the occasion meeting us prior to take our engagement photos, discussing with us how we wanted to have the day unfold and making sure she was prepared to know who and what was going on for our special day. Jill made it seem very effortless
and not the painful poses I have seen in other wedding photography sessions.

Jill’s ability to be flexible in our location and timelines helped leading up to the day. Jill had no problem accommodating us with our requests making out of town appointments. Although Jill lives in Cambridge she is often catering to South Western Ontario Region and so it was not a problem to come down to Burlington. No, she didn’t charge us extra! :-)

Value? How do you say to a photographer that you want them to do a good job and be worth the price tag and not sound like a horrible client at the same time? Well it wasn’t needed. Jill was very reassuring with her efforts, had a very competitive price point on her services and in the end we received more from her then we asked or expected.

We are sure there are other excellent photographers, but now we can just call Jill and get the best every time! What’s next… baby pictures, family reunions, family Christmas photos, and wedding anniversaries.”
