Award Winning Wedding Photographer in Guelph

This year I decided to enter an image in one of the biggest photography print contests in the world, the WPPI Second Half Print Competition. When I took this image at Tod and Erin Helkaa’s wedding it was an instant favorite of mine so I thought what the heck lets see what the judges think. And to my surprise it was awarded an “Accolade of Excellence” scoring 86 points. I am incredibly excited about this award and wanted to share the good news with all of you.

Around this time of year I like many others tend to get a bit overwhelmed with things. The world just seems to speed up during the Holiday Season. Everyone is in a hurry, trying to get their last few things bought and wrapped. Parents are stressed at the financial strain of this time of year. Kids are crazy excited and a bit out of control (and some adults like me ). Maybe we should all just sit back take some time and breath and remember all the simple things in life and not how much we spend on one another. Sit down with your kids, play, sing, watch a Christmas movie, go for a family walk and look at all the beautiful Christmas Lights ( like my wife and I did last night) or just take some time to yourself and enjoy this beautiful time of year. You will be thankful you did.
Happy Holdidays Everyone 🙂

My Family :)

Over the past month I have been showing images of some of the families that I have been photographing. Today I thought I would share a couple images of my family. Yesterday was my sister Deb’s Birthday so I decided to take a couple quick photographs in my Mom and Step Dad’s backyard. It was a beautiful fall day to spend with family and as usual we had a lot of laughs and some great food.

Our Clients are Saying…

One of the best decisions we made!

“Hiring John Wills Photography to work with us on our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made! This choice was crucial, since the photographer is with you all day and can make or break the flow of the day. From our first meeting to the last click of the camera, John made […]
