We were extremely lucky to have Shivani as out photographer and most importantly to be a witness on our special day. We met Shivani on the day of and without saying much of the expectations of our photographs, she delivered by capturing the moments we would cherish forever. Shivani is professional, efficient, organized and communicating with her was consistent and answered in a timely manner. Shivani is a true artist, she has totally exceeded our expectations on the quality of the photos. Thank you Shivani for the beautiful photos! We can't wait until we have the honour again to ask you to capture more moments on more special days.

Shivani responded really quickly when we initially contacted them and gave us a very detailed outline of the packages that she offers. She has a clear vision and let us know what she needed to make sure that the end product turn out beautiful. She was very helpful and very good at directing us to make sure all the pictures that we wanted were taken on the big day. The end product only took about 2 weeks to get, and they are beautiful. I would whole-heartedly recommend Shivani to any bride-to-be out there looking for a great photographer.
Grace & Kyle
We met Shivani at our friend's wedding. She captured the true essence of the wedding by clicking both candid and posed pictures. Having seen her amazing work, we hired Shivani for our 10th wedding Anniversary photoshoot and were beyond happy with the outcome. Shivani made us feel extremely comfortable and clicked pictures of not just us but also our dog. She was very accomodating and always with a smile. The photographs were sent to us in no time and when we hadn't downloaded them she resent the pictures again within minutes of sending her a text. Shivani is extremely professional, responsive and makes one feel at ease. We will definitely be using her services again. Thanks Shivani!
Lakshmi and Kedar
Shivani is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very quick to respond to our inquires before our wedding day. Shivani also made me feel very comfortable the entire day and went above and beyond my expectations. She stuck by my side, and even helped take of my veil and bustle my dress. We received our photos back in less than two weeks and cannot be happier. They are stunning! I would highly recommend her photography. I cannot wait to work with Shivani in the future.
Eryn & Vince
We could not have been happier with our choice to have Shivani photograph our wedding! Before our big day, she was communicative and flexible with our planning. When it came time to wrangle our families for pre-wedding photos, Shivani was direct and professional (while remaining upbeat and friendly), arranging shots and people beautifully. If there was a candid moment (my dog rushing onto the dance floor, a grasshopper on my sister's dress, a spontaneous Arab dance), she was right there to capture it. I knew I would probably love my wedding photos regardless, but Shivani's work is above and beyond my expectations. We would highly recommend her to others!
Shivani was so great to work with. The second photographer, Michelle, was also a pleasure to work with. We had Shivani for our engagement shoot and also on our wedding day. She was always very quick to respond to e-mails and met with us to discuss package options and was very open to our ideas and gave suggestions for and we could have our engagement shoot and wedding day photographed. On our wedding day, she was amazing and was extremely helpful. Our photos came out beautifully and they were ready in a week! She even created a slideshow and printed out DVD covers which was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend her as her package pricing was extremely reasonable! Thank you for the wonderful photos Shivani!
My husband and I are so happy that we found Shivani! She was always very prompt about getting back to me right away whenever I had questions. She took the time to meet with us in person to discuss the wedding day and what we wanted out of our photos. She was very professional and flexible on the day of and we had a lot of fun working with her. The photos turned out amazing and she captured every moment perfectly. Her rate was also very affordable and much more reasonable than some of the other quotes we had received. We would re-hire her again in a heart beat. I highly recommend Shivani as a wedding photographer.
Shivani and the second shooter, Samir, were wonderful to work with, very approachable and responsive by email. She made us feel at ease throughout the wedding day and the photos turned out beautifully with her editing skills. She was very organized and provided us with a short PowerPoint (with music) of some of our best photos, including two CD ROMs with over 1000 photos from our 18 hour wedding day and photobooth pictures in a beautifully decorated CD ROM cover displaying our photos. We received final edited photos within two weeks, but would have received it sooner had we not been on our honeymoon. She was a pleasure to work with, creative, and kept a smile on her face throughout the long hot summer day! We were all very impressed by her work and highly recommend to others!
Sag & Eva
Photography By Shivani was great and we would gladly book her again if we ever needed to capture another memorable moment. She was professional and personable throughout the whole process prior to the wedding and on the day. She was able to capture the moments that were the most important to us as well as moments I didn't think I needed or wanted. She took the initiative throughout the day to get a variety of images and managed to keep all the amateur photographers at bay so that we could get the best shots. I highly recommend her.
Tina & Dominic
Shivani was amazing and so much fun to work with! Our wedding photos were stunning and ready for us a week later! We can't thank her enough for beautifully capturing the best day of our lives! We are so greatful to have worked with her and can't wait to again in the future!
Shivani and Carla were AMAZING. They were so easy to work with! I would definitely recommend them! I am constantly getting compliments on our wedding photos. They are true representation of our special day.
Shivani is a beautiful person all round. She is patient, knows her work well and is very calming. She isn't pushy and is quite fair which made it so easy to work with her. I was recommended to her and I'm glad I did as my day went smoothly with her by my side , her ideas are brilliant and my pictures turned out absolutely amazing. I'll be using her again in the future.
We hired Shivani to shoot both our engagement and wedding day photos. She was very down to earth and really enjoys what she does. She made it very easy for us to “pose” for pictures and made it look candid even with our energetic puppy. She was very responsive and had great advice for any questions or concerns we had which took a lot of pressure off of us. The pictures turned out amazing! We would recommend her to anyone looking to shoot their engagement or wedding day photos!
Very professional, personable, goes above and beyond. She stayed at the reception till the end. She listened to our request and went out of her way to accommodate our requests. The images where exactly what we where looking for.
I really recommend Shivani. She is a professional photographer. She is friendly and she danced with us. We liked her ideas and sincerity in handling our requests and sugesstions. She is very fast in providing photos and handling all aspects of pictures development.
Shivani was very flexible and accommodating to our small wedding. The pictures she produced were amazing and we received them back in a short amount of time which was great. I also loved the online gallery she provided which made it easy to share with friends and family. She really knew how to direct us to get the best shots and had a professional yet very friendly personality. I would use her services again in the future and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for great wedding photos.
Shivani and her associates were extremely fun to work with. They were on time, professional and were very mindful of photographing the two different ceremonies. I would definitely recommend this team! Even more amazing was that the photos were ready within a week from our wedding!
Shivani was very easy to work with. All of our interactions were very pleasant. She wasn't available for my wedding date, so she hired photographers and did the editing for my wedding. The photographers she sent us, Carla and Jen, were so lovely! They were a great presence on our wedding day. Our photos are beautiful, and we are very happy with the quality.
Shivani was amazing to work with, incredibly responsive and proactive. She was unable to shoot my wedding herself but provided a photographer well in advance and included samples of her work to ensure I was comfortable with the change. The photos are gorgeous and our photographer was a great fit to our vibe!
Shivani was very sweet from the moment we started talking to her. Our guests were really impressed by her. We love her fun and easy going character. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Her picture quality was great. Overall, we are more than pleased with her work and her level of professionalism. Thank you shivani for being part of our wedding.
Shivani impressed us right from the start. We met her at a wedding show. She had a very nice display of her work. It was her personality that made the difference for us. She was willing to take the time to hear what we wanted from a photographer then let us know how her services would meet our expectations. She had reasonable rates and delivered as promised. A lot of photographers seem to want to impress by having the biggest camera lens and all the flashy new stuff. All of that is great but you truly have to know how to use it and how to interact with the people to get the best results. She delivered for us and I have no issue recommending her services to others.
We were very fortunate to find Shivani for our engagement shoot on the Toronto Island. Not only was she professional and responsive leading up to our meeting (responding often within minutes via email or text), she was incredibly flexible when things did not go as planned. For example, when rainy weather was threatening our shoot, she agreed to wait it out with us instead of calling it off. Overall, we found Shivani to be warm and personable and felt comfortable in her presence right off the bat. Our shoot lasted over an hour and we received 150+ touched-up photos within a short period of time. We would not hesitate to book Shivani for any of our future events/milestones. 🙂
Shivani is an exceptional photographer - she is also extremely charismatic, professional, and does her job very well. Wedding days are often crazy, and somehow she managed to navigate her way around our families and snap every single photo we could have wanted, all while directing people and keeping them smiling. She stayed with us for a long time on our wedding day and had our pictures back to us quickly. Her service was very affordable and the pictures turned out stunning! My husband and I would definitely recommend her services.
Shivani really captured our winter wonderland themed wedding, the photos turned out great! She really goes above and beyond, helping with little last minute details and taking some of the pressure off of the wedding party.
Shivani was the absolutely perfect photographer for our wedding! Communication leading up to the day was clear. I sent her a lengthy powerpoint presentation with inspiration shots from pinterest and from within her own portfolio online. She welcomed it and took no offence to my creative direction requests. She got every shot I desired, even the ones I didn't know she was taking ticked all the boxes I had. The day of Shivani was incredible, calm when I wasn't my best, she took appropriate control making sure we were getting all the needed group shots etc. I put complete trust into her leadership and it was worth it. She wasn't afraid to get down and dirty (literally in the garden dirt) to get the best shots. She has an impeccable eye and some of our favourite shots were impromtu along a brick wall/iron staircase we just happened to walk by off Yonge st and she had a vison for. After climbing the staircase my hands were dirty and we didn't have a cloth, so she had me wipe them on her sleeve. The best! The final work was incredible, a perfect account of our wedding day. She provided a slideshow that felt so comprehensive that I feel like we had a videographer. She turned it around in less than 5 days with full quality original files given to us to keep on two disk format. She even provided a website link for email friendly pics to share online with family and friends. Without a doubt, we will work with Shivani again for all of our future photography needs!
One of the best decisions we could have made during the entire wedding planning process was booking Shivani. Not only did our pictures turn out beautifully - but she was incredibly easy to work with from beginning to end. From scheduling meetings and engagement photos, to the last minute pictures we wanted the day of the wedding, she was incredibly flexible and easy going. We highly suggest meeting with Shivani and booking her for any upcoming photo needs you may have, she's worth every penny!
Shivani was awesome! She made everything about our wedding photos so easy before, after and on the big day. The price was right, we got our photos in less than a week and, most importantly, we got exactly the photos we wanted! Thanks again Shivani!!
Shivani was great. She made me feel very comfortable the whole day. She went around the church and hall looking for the best spots for photos. In a day that could be stressful she made it easier on us.
Shivani Took incredible photos of our wedding reception, and we were utterly amazed that she had them all edited and ready within a couple of days, presented in a beautiful CD case with photo montage on it. She made me look like a model, and took excellent low light photos of our dance... All for an excellent price! Shivani was A pleasure to work with, and we are super happy with our wedding photos. I would highly recommend to her as a wedding photographer... Her photos are incredible and cost a fraction of what some other wedding photographers charge.
Dave and I married on July 18th 2016. Shivani Varma was our wedding photographer. She did an excellent job, her professional with the guests and children pictures looked really nice. Especially our wedding pictures looked great. Family and friends' pictures at the party or reception are of the kind that we will always be remembered of a good job Shivani had done. I would certainly recommend Photography by Shivani to a friend.
David & Davone
Shiv was amazing!! We interviewed numerous photographers a few months leading up to our wedding (June 12, 2016) with the last one being Shivani. We arranged to meet with her at Bayview Village. We were under a lot of stress (as most couples would be when you're working with a budget) and we were even contemplating on not showing up to meet her, but my wife had seen her work online and insisted that she would be the last photographer we'd meet. She showed up with this positive energy and all smiles...did not ask us for any deposit but just asked us to sign some forms as a commitment. On the day of the wedding, not only did she do an incredible job capturing every little moment of our most memorable evening but she also helped my family running around in making sure everything goes fine. She even helped my wife in the dressing room with putting her veil!! Her turn around time was only 3 days...when she provided us with about 500 photos on a DVD in HD (print ready) quality. Thanks Shiv for everything! Keep up the great work!
Elias & Saria
Shivani was fantastic to work with right from our initial meeting to our wedding day! She created a very relaxed atmosphere and took a ton of photos. I loved her style of photography some candid shots some posed but all turned out beautiful. I had my two dogs in my wedding a mastiff and huskey. Needless to say not the easiest to work with but she was great and even got them to smile for the camera with all her noises lol. I have also recommended her one of my friends who is getting married September 2016 and I will be one of her bridesmaids so I am looking forward to working with shivani again. If you want your wedding day to go smoothly and have amazing photos that you will actually look at in 20 years hire Shivani you can't go wrong. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Sarah Van Bemmel
Shivani did a great job with our downtown rooftop wedding! The pictures were beautiful and she was a pleasure to work with. She worked like a ninja and was able to capture everything as it happened. Most of the memories I would have completely forgotten about were beautifully frozen in pictures. Very reliable and open to ideas. The photos were ready for viewing really quick. I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know. Thanks so much.
A friend referred Shivani to us and she was accommodating and she came to us for our initial meeting. She was prepared and professional and was easy to talk to. She provided suggestions on shooting locations and well informed on if we needed permits. On the day of the wedding Shivani was punctual, had a great personality and got along with my family and friends. She was quick and patient even though people were pulling her in many different directions to take pictures. My venue was very dark and she came prepared with lighting. She was one of my easiest vendors to work with and produces gorgeous photos so quick after the wedding. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
Iris and Jovi
We hired Shivani for our Engagement Shoot and Wedding Day. From the beginning, she was nothing but professional. Always on time and very responsive to our inquiries. She got our photo's back to us in no time. Some of our friends have been waiting months to get their photos! I would highly recommend using Shivani for your special day! Thanks for the great work!
Katy and Erik Lo Forte
We hired Shivani to shoot one of our wedding events. From the get go, she was fantastic to work with! We were very impressed with her detailed response to our initial inquiry which answered all of our questions before we needed to ask them. She was super easy to reach and very prompt with her responses. She was also very professional and got along great with everyone. We particularly want to thank her for the professional way in which she handled capturing our moments while balancing our excited guests who wanted their own photos of us 🙂 She got our photos to us in next to no time and we are beyond happy with them! Highly recommended and will definitely be using her services again. Thanks a bunch Shivani and keep up the great work!
Laura and Ekhlasur
Shivani took such beautiful pictures. She also provided a lot of direction which I needed and felt everyone else did given how hard it is to maintain the attention of everyone in a large group. She was also very affordable and gave our pictures in no time. We wanted our pictures on a cd and loved how everything was so organized. Definitely recommending her!
Mihaela and Mohamed
Shivani was so great. Very organised and easy to work with. The pictures we got were so amazing. I already started recommending her to everyone I know, thats how happy me and my wife are with her.
Shivani did a great job with our downtown rooftop wedding! The pictures were beautiful and she was a pleasure to work with. Very reliable and open to ideas.
Catherine and George
I cannot describe how beautiful the photos turned out for my wedding. After I had received many photos (Facebook/Instagram) from the reception the day after the wedding, I was horrified and so worried that the photos would turn out the same way. When Shivani showed me the photos, I was SO happy. The photos were absolutely stunning and she caught moments during the ceremony and reception that I do not even remember. It was through her that I will be able to remember each and every detail of my wedding for years to come. Thank you so much once again! Alicia
Shivani was absolutely amazing! I reached to her while planning a surprise trip for my fiancée in Toronto. Shivani totally made the process seamless and fun. Not being from the area, I was taking a shot in the dark going with someone who I have no frame of reference of. Communication was on point and she was totally reasonable price wise. Tiff and I along with our friends and family are 100% happy with the photos she took. If we're ever in need of photos in the future and in the area I will absolutely contact Shivani again.
Ramon and Tiff
Shivani was awesome!! She was punctual, professional, flexible. All her shots were amazing! Even the candid ones. Our guests loved her and we're all impress with quality of the images and how she captured every moment in our special day. We are very happy and would recommend Shivani to everyone!!!
Heidi & Ricardo
Shivani was great! Our guests loved her energy and we loved how she captured every moment! She was reliable and delivered over and above our expectations. The posed images came out fantastic and the candid shots on the dance floor were really unique and not something a lot of wedding photographers deliver. We really enjoyed having her there and guests are still commenting on how awesome she was, professional and fun! Highly recommended!
