One of the highlights my fiancee and I had during our wedding planning experience was working with Helga and her wonderful assistant (and husband) Peter. For us, photography was our main area of focus for quality and expertise...we could care less about flowers and favors, etc, but the one thing that was very important to us were the photos. Helga definitely exceeded our expectations in this department.

Helga did an amazing job with our engagement photos, invitations and even my boudoir photography (makes a great wedding gift for your groom!). We are still receiving compliments on how beautiful the invitations were...even though the wedding has already passed. We received our photo products in a fair timeframe too. The quality of photos that Helga produces is exceptional..her value for cost is very reasonable.

I can't wait to see how our wedding photos turn out; however, Helga has proven in her previous work that they will turn out beautifully. I am looking forward to working with Helga again in the future and will definitely recommend her to family and friends who are planning their wedding.

We are so happy that we used Helga for our wedding pictures. She helped make the afternoon process so fun and yet kept it very professional. She even provided us with ideas for groomsmen gifts that could incorporate some of the photos. When all was said and done, there wasn't a single photo from the entire day that we didn't like. It was an excellent expierence all in all.

Asking Helga to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding. She was helpful and so much fun to work with, and she incorporated our ideas and interests into the photo shoot, so our photos ended up so personalized! They were beautiful, as well -- stunning photography that will help us memorialize our wedding day for a lifetime!!! Thanks so much Helga!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Helga's work. After pricing out several photographers in Edmonton, I found that her packages were reasonably priced, and the best value I could get for my money. I could not be happier with the artistic quality of my wedding photos-- a real treasure! Talented, professional, easy to get along with, and a very hard worker; I would reccomend this photographer to anyone needing professional photos.

I loved Helga's work. She was very professional and yet very personal as well, which made her feel like a friend as well. She was very flexible and creative. We really loved her work.

Helga was a great photographer for our special day and we had a good vibe from her the minute we met her when we were looking for a photographer!

She had so many fun ideas for our wedding party while doing pictures and went out of her way to capture the special moments throughout the wedding day.

Although our wedding was quite large, she kept calm and handled our huge groups of families and friends with ease. She even wore a traditional Indian outfit the day of our wedding which I thought was awesome!

Thanks again for everything Helga!
