I am so glad that Yves was our photographer! Our wedding pictures came out so beautifully -- he really did capture all the important parts of the wedding, and got some great candid pictures as well. He has a lot of fun and fresh ideas, and has also been photographing weddings for many years so his work carries a polish and sophistication from those years of experience. He really listened to what we wanted, made great recommendations, and was calm throughout all the of chaos during the wedding. Would recommend him to anyone!

For someone like me, who has a face for radio, Yves made me relax and comfortable on my wedding day. I don't really like standing still, yet alone striking numerous poses for the camera. But Yves and son made it fun and even enjoyable!

We got our wedding pictures back the other night and were simply blown away by them. Wedding days can become such blurs. You are on the go all day but with these lovely pictures, we can reminisce for the rest of our lives. Cheers Yves!

Yves is an amazing photographer to work with. On the day of the wedding a bride and groom spend a lot of time with the photographer around them so it's important for it to be someone who shares your joy with you and understands the importance of capturing all your special moments and Yves did just that for us! He is professional yet fun to work with and has a lot of ideas for great shots but also listens to what is important for you to capture. He was prompt on the day of and had our proofs ready sooner than we expected with great quality.

Thanks you, Yves, for our beautiful wedding photos!

Working with YJM Photography was a real pleasure. Yves takes great pride and professionalism in his work while remaining very courteous. With all the excitement and emotions on a wedding day, it is difficult to process everything that is happening.

We couldn't have had a more professional photographer for our wedding than Yves. Family and friends were amazed how focused and hard working he was during the wedding to get all the shots. Trust me, the photos can prove it. We are very happy with all the photos and had a difficult time narrowing them down for the album because they were all good.
