Jacq Elise Married couple on 12 Aug 2023
As a Wedding Coordinator, when I tell you it’s crucial to find vendors that you can connect with and speak your vision into existence, this is why.
Kelsey C. Married couple on 23 Nov 2021
Hilary recently did a branding shoot for me and the photos turned out amazing! Not only did she stay longer, she also brought so many props and backdrops. I highly recommend her services, can't wait to do another shoot!
Amaan Bashir Married couple on 28 Aug 2021
I hired Hilary to take photos for a proposal and she exceeded my expectations! She made it work with very short notice and was like a fly on the wall despite the size of the space. She captured the entire surprise moment perfectly and took a number of great photos after I popped the question. Then, she edited and sent along the photos in short order so we could share it with our friends and family fairly quickly.
I would highly recommend Hilary's services!
Emma H. Married couple on 31 Oct 2020
Hilary is dedicated and professional, and most of all, very passionate about her work! I love working with her and I know she will bring the best experience to any shoot or session! Highly recommended!
Miranda Westendorp Married couple on 22 Aug 2020
I cannot say enough good things about Hilary.
To start, Hilary is professional, provides a great service for a great value and is incredibly fun to work with.

We had a photoshoot at Kin Vineyards that Hilary set up on our behalf. She took care of all the little details, so all we had to bring was our smiles (and some snacks to go with our wine).

Hilary made us feel relaxed, and encouraged us to have fun which brought out some really great moments during our session. She captured our relationship beautifully, and we'll be able to cherish these photos forever. The quality is top notch—these are photos which I will print, frame and hang in our home. Hilary delivered our photos in a timely manner, and I was so happy with the results that I cried.

If you're looking to book any sort of photos (engagement, wedding, baby, mini sessions, etc,.) you should really reach out to Hilary.
12/10 Would recommend.
Steven Parker Married couple on 01 Oct 2022
We have used Hilary for mini shoots and for our wedding. She has a great eye, professional and fun. All of the pictures turned out incredible. We have also ordered prints and we were overly impressed, as she goes the extra mile.
Amy Godin Married couple on 26 Nov 2022
Hilary is such a talented wedding photographer! Her work is stunning!
Meghan Macdonell Married couple on 03 Dec 2022
Hilary was our photographer for our engagement session and wedding. She is an absolute professional, with a great eye and ability to capture all of the special moments you would hope are captured on a wedding day. Not only that, but she is a lot of fun to be around and puts you at ease in front of the camera.
We could not be happier with the photos she has taken for us, and I would highly recommend her services!
Caitlin L. Married couple on 14 Oct 2023
Hilary is an absolutely wonderful human and a supremely talented photographer. She is kind, warm, funny, and puts you at ease if you aren't comfortable in front of a camera. Her style is fresh and authentic and she is amazing at capturing the magic of the day. Even before I got engaged I knew Hilary had to be our engagement shoot and wedding photographer. You spend so much time on your wedding day with your photographer, and a fair amount of time taking photos. If you want a photographer who makes that process fun instead of a chore to get through, then Hilary is definitely the photographer for you.


Hilary Maxwell
Photographer Hilary Maxwell About me

I'm all about seeking out the beauty in the world, and your day. My style is fine art meets elegantly natural. Posed photos along with candids as the day unfolds. I'm a quieter person who likes to watch and listen to those around her, which helps me to find the little moments throughout your day as you soak it all in.     I grew up loving the arts - be it photography, painting, music, what have you. It helped me to develop my creative eye with my photography, which I then grew into this business!    I love to spend my time outside of work and weddings geocaching with my family, spending time with friends over tea or wine, hiking on nearby Greenbelt walking trails, learning to bake gluten free - and nailing it.    I'm in love with a rustic elegance vibe to life. I love me some beautiful deep earthy colours, like your burgundy's and navy's. But toss in some classic whites, pastel greens, lace & wooden texture alongside modern shapes.
