Bouquet_4x5I started Marilyn Gillespie Photography in 1987 and built a reputation as being a well respected wedding and portrait photographer in Calgary. In 1999, Flare Magazine featured me in an article as “One of Canada’s best wedding photographers.” Now living in Montreal, I am available to shoot weddings large or small in Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, and surrounding areas.

My style is natural and photojournalistic. I capture the story of your wedding day in candid shots that reveal the spirit of my subjects and the emotion of the moment.  Wedding packages range in price depending on the amount of coverage you need and the type of album you choose.

My family portraits are fun and playful capturing the love and laughter in your family. I love working outdoors in natural light in your backyard, at a favourite park, or in the mountains.

All of my packages include retouched 4×6 proofs. High resolution digital files can be added to your package or custom enlargements ordered through me.

For my corporate clients, headshots and business portraits are done on location which results in a casual relaxed portrait.
