My fiancé and I had Lisa and her husband Jim do our engagement shoot this June and we were absolutely thrilled with how everything turned out. They did such a great job making us feel comfortable in front of the camera and it truly shows in the pictures - what a great time we had! We are so thankful we chose Lisa as our photographer and cannot wait to see how the wedding pictures will turn out!!

Alanna & Daniel

We had a wonderful evening with Lisa doing our engagement photos, she was very professional and light! She made us laugh and we were fortunate enough for the weather to work out. We received the photos very quickly and LOVE them! Can't wait for our wedding and for Lisa to work her magic again.

What can I say about Lisa Rivard Photography? My fiancé & I recently did our engagement shoot with Lisa and her husband, Jim, and when she sent us the sneak peeks of the images I was completely speechless because I was so blown away by how beautiful the images were - they were better than I ever could have imagined! Lisa really knows how to capture that golden hour sunlight! What meant more though was the actual experience of the shoot and working with Lisa & Jim. They both made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable, it felt like we had known them for years. Bonus: my fiancé left the shoot saying he had way more fun than he thought he would (and isn't that the goal when it comes to forcing your partner to take pictures in the cold?!) We cannot wait to work with them again for our wedding day photography (and hopefully many special occasions beyond that!)

Katie & Nick

We will be forever grateful for the beautiful photos Lisa captured of a special time in our lives. She has a magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting and of course expressions. Lisa's joyful personality instantly put us at ease and made us feel comfortable and relaxed during our session. I would never hesitate to recommend her to any couple looking to capture their love in photographs!

Emma & Christian

Lisa and Jim were absolutely amazing to work with. Right from the beginning of reaching out to Lisa, she was very responsive and answered all my questions about navigating an engagement photoshoot and what to expect on our wedding day. Lisa provided us with great timelines and suggestions for our photoshoot and when the day came, despite the cold weather and rain, our photos turned out amazing! Lisa and Jim made us feel so comfortable and guided us through the beautiful Guelph campus for our engagement photoshoot and we couldn't be happier with the way our pictures turned out. We are very much looking forward to our wedding day and how easy Lisa will make it for us and our guests. Thank you to an amazing duo who know what they are doing and do it so so well!

I can't say enough about Lisa. I usually hate pictures of myself but I loved every picture that she took. She made the experience easy and fun.

Lisa is extremely organized & her communication skills are exceptional. She was extremely timely with her responses and went above and beyond to support us with our big day. She adds so many little details that amount to an absolutely tremendous photography experience. Lisa’s photography style is exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding and the images turned out stunning. We loved how quickly she sent us sneak peeks! She was flexible on the day of & captured all the shots we needed in a timely more! She was very accommodating and understanding throughout the pandemic wedding planning process and we count ourselves as extremely lucky to have had a vendor like her. We will certainly use Lisa for any future photography needs & would recommend her to any couples looking to get married!

Lisa and her husband are an absolute pleasure to work with! From our first "get to know you" conference call to our engagement photos, Lisa has been so responsive and wanting to make sure that we are getting everything we are looking for through this process. She is easy to talk to with a high level of professionalism. We can't wait to have her shoot our wedding next year!

We can't thank you enough for capturing our day and sharing with us such breathtaking pictures. The photos are absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!

"My fiancé and I used her for our engagement photos and are using her for our wedding day as well. She is so caring and amazing to deal with – always checking in on us every month, making sure everything we need is there for us and super supportive. I would recommend her to ANYONE for any type of photoshoot you are looking for.”

Lisa did our engagement photos for us and she was fantastic! She listened to our needs as a couple and our vision for the photos. The photos turned out fantastic. Additionally, she is very responsive to any forms of communication and offers great value for her products.

"Where do I start when it comes to Lisa Rivard? She is incredible to work with and she easily adapts to the personalities of the people she’s shooting. Both her & her husband, Jim, make the entire shoot relaxing & entertaining. Within minutes, both my partner & I felt like we’d known them for years as it was such a comfortable atmosphere. She adds so many little details that amount to an absolutely tremendous photography experience. Lisa’s photography style is exactly what we had envisioned & we are beyond excited to work with her again for our wedding. Lisa is very quick to respond, attentive & reliable. She has been very accommodating & understanding throughout the pandemic wedding planning process and we count ourselves as extremely lucky to be working with such a wonderful couple."

Kelsey & Jordan

Where do I even start! The photos are beyond what I expected and she has an amazing light and airy style. Lisa goes above and beyond when it comes to her clients and boy she does not disappoint! She gave great direction and advice for posing and positioning. She is polite, professional, and a joy to work with. Book her. I know I will be in the future!

I've done family photos with Lisa twice now and both were great experiences and produced fantastic photos. The first time she came to our house which worked well for us since our youngest child was still napping quite often. The second time we did photos in the Arboretum in Guelph. Lisa was very responsive and communicative leading up to the session, keeping us up to date on weather forecasts. The turnaround time for the photos was quick as well. And Lisa gives you digital copies of all the photos so you choose what to download and print. My husband and I also did headshots with Lisa which were fabulous as well.

The pictures turned out absolutely amazing – we can’t stop looking at them and showing them off. Thank you so much Lisa!”
