As another happy client said....

Ilona is the ultimate professional and made my photo shoot for my website a great and fun experience. I do not like to get my picture taken but she listened to my concerns, made me feel very comfortable, and made me look great! She does it, hair and photos...and she keeps taking the photos until she is satisfied with the shot. I highly recommend her work.

Justin Mcmaster: McMaster Technical Services

"My family has not had a portrait done in over 20 years, Ilona Kohlmann was able to source a spectacular location much nicer than a back drop, and created some stunning images for us including our two family dogs.

The exceptional experience [that] was provided got my whole family involved, resulting in some outstanding family photos that we will cherish forever.

Ilona was able to manage both my parents and their dogs to create some memories frozen on paper and canvas that we will proudly display for years to come.

Both myself and each of my parents commented on what a wonderful experience that was provided, and how well the end result shows through her work.

I would wholeheartedly refer Ilona Kohlmann to any friends or family looking to have exceptional memories and a brilliant photographer for any occasion or photography needed."

Cindy and Bob Dubray, Spire Commercial Real Estate

"There are many reasons why people want family pictures. In my case, the reasons were:- To have a photo of four generations with my mother, daughter, granddaughter and myself;- To have an updated photo of our "blended family" including our children's partners.

After completing a One on One meeting with Ilona and hearing how she likes to be creative with her photography and make everyone feel like a model, we booked a sunny fall day for an outdoor photo shoot.

With 11 participants, one under 1-years-old and another 83-years-old, there were some limitations, however, the final result was spectacular. A backdrop of fall colours and everyone with a smiling face. Ilona convinced us all that perfection is possible! It may have taken a little artistic magic... but the results look very natural!

Thank you Ilona for providing us with photograph[ed] memories that are priceless! We will certainly recommend your services to others."

How far in advance should we book your photography services for our special event?

We recommend booking our photography services as early as possible to secure your preferred date. Popular dates, especially during the fall season, tend to get reserved quickly. Ideally, you should contact us at least 1-5 months in advance to ensure availability. However, we understand that sometimes plans come together on shorter notice, and we'll do our best to accommodate last-minute bookings whenever possible.

Can we request specific shots, locations or styles for our photography session?

Absolutely! We encourage our clients to share their vision and preferences with us. Before your session or event, we'll have a consultation to discuss your ideas, style, location, and any specific shots you have in mind. We believe in tailoring our photography to your unique needs, ensuring that the final results align with your expectations and reflect your personal taste.

What is the typical turnaround time for receiving our edited photographs?

Our standard turnaround time for delivering edited photographs varies depending on the scope of the project. For portrait sessions and smaller events, you can expect to receive your edited images within 1 week. For larger events or extensive photography projects, the turnaround time may extend to 2 weeks; rarely longer, but would be confirmed before booking. Rest assured, we prioritize quality in our post-production process to ensure each image meets our high standards before we deliver them to you. If you have any specific deadlines or urgent requests, please let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Thanks for your help Ilona! I met Ilona through a business associated who recommended I use her for my real estate head shot. As a realtor it is important to have an updated photo that represents who you are and to allow people to have a glimpse into your personality. I had never had this level of photography done and did not know what to expect. Well I instantly fell in love with Ilona and her way of making you feel and look fantastic and capturing it on film and showing your best but true version of self.. She created images that I am so happy to use for business and keep as treasured memories. She also became one of my dearest friends as she is just amazing all around. My family and I have always used Ilona Photography for all our family and personal photos.

I highly recommend Ilona for not only corporate head shots, but also action/experiential photos...she is amazing! Ilona is fabulous!She did our engagement photoshoot. She was super flexible, creative, and comfortable to work with.
