Cami is a fantastic photographer! We originally hired her to shoot our engagement photos, and loved our photos so much that we decided to hire her for our destination wedding in Mexico. Our
photographs turned out amazing! She was able to capture beautiful portraits and also candid shots. She was a pleasure to work with and was a consummate professional. She was able to capture amazing moments for us that we will remember forever! Even after the wedding festivities she was incredibly quick at providing us with our photographs and an amazing album. 5/5 we would highly recommend her to anyone!

When my daughter was born, I used a few different photographers to get some professional photos of us. They were good sets, but one stood out head and shoulders above the rest: Cami from Bellatrix Photography. She captured time, place and smell in a photo. I look at the pictures she took that first summer and I can feel the sun on my face, smell the fresh grass and that delicious newborn baby smell. The pictures transport me back to that very day. She captures the day, feelings, and the emotion so well, it is like she is a member of our family and always observing us. It is never awkward or strained, it is relaxing and fun and the time goes by so quickly, you wonder if you did enough. Then you see the photo gallery and you see she got so many amazing photos you will never be able to pick just one to frame! We have had sessions with Bellatrix ever since that first summer. I wholeheartedly recommend her for capturing the little windows of your lives.

Cami is the loveliest soul. She was willing to go on a hike with us for our engagement shoot, gave us so much time and helped us feel natural. We didn't feel rushed at all. The wedding day was a lot smaller than what we thought we were gonna do because of Covid but regardless Cami was super patient as we figured out our new plans. The whole process was smooth and easy and both the engagement pictures and the wedding pictures are all amazing!!! PS. Cami even saved our cake from our dog at one point haha. Thanks so much!!!

I drove up from Buffalo NY to meet Cami for personal branding headshots. She was amazing and completely worth the drive! Being a fairly versatile performer, I wanted to work with someone who I thought could capture a wide variety of expressions from me. I love my photos! They are exactly what I was hoping for! Cami has an intimate knowledge of Toronto and was able to take me to multiple places and shoot hundreds of amazing photos in a very short time. She has a lovely demeanor, is very professional, and is extremely helpful and clear in her process. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for interesting photos to use professionally, and also for anyone looking to capture special moments in their lives. She travels a lot, so the only thing I would warn about is that it might take a while to set something up. That being said, she contacted me as soon as she had availability and it was really easy to schedule with her at that point. Thank you Cami!!!

Amazing!!! We had Camila photograph our wedding in Mexico this year (2023) and we are so happy to have had her capture our day. She was very professional, prepared, organized and confident. She was great at giving direction as well as capturing candid moments. She is very personable and totally blended in at our event. She was prompt in turning around the edited photos to us and we were totally pleased with the final results. Couldn't have had a better photographer. Highly recommended. Thank you!

"Det morsomste med å leve er alle de kreative menneskene man møter langs veien i løpet av livet. Og det er nettopp disse kreative sjelene som gjør livet fargerikt og litt mer spennende! Det er de kreative personene som gir det deg det lille ekstra, og de som overrasker deg når du minst venter det, som man husker best og for alltid. Vår brasilianske fotograf venn som er bosatt i Canada er en av de. Denne vakre skjønnheten kan finne på å sette seg alene på et fly helt fra Canada for å ta bilder av oss en helt vanlig ettermiddag i Botansik hage i Oslo! Hun kan finne på å reise helt fra andre siden av jordkloden, for å bestige en norsk fjelltopp helt alene, fordi hun så et bilde av et nosk fjell som hun likte på Google. Hun er vakker og hun er tøff! Og det er umulig å ikke like denne skjønne dama.
Midt på natten tidligere denne uken, våknet jeg av at jeg fikk en email nettopp fra henne. Tidsforskjell! = ) Da ville hun bare fortelle meg, når jeg minst ventet det, at hun hadde laget en liten video på You Tube med noen av bildene hun hadde tatt av mine mine barn, som jeg er så stolt over. Og i går fikk jeg beskjed om at hun nå sitter å lager verdens flotteste fotobøker til oss, som om hun aldri har gjort noe annet i hele sitt liv enn å gjøre nettopp ting som dette.
Hun er en av disse spesielle og kreative menneskene som gjør det lille ekstra! Et menneske jeg har møtt langs livets vei, som har fotografert de vakreste bilder til oss. Hun har med sine unike og kreative evner skapt minner vi kan ta med oss videre. Fanget små øyeblikk av livet vårt, for at vi alltid skal kunne huske de. Hun tar bilder som bare blir vakrere og vakrere jo mer man ser på de. Cami Mendes er en av de som utgjør en forskjell! En av de unike menneskene man alltid vil huske. Hun klarer å fange opp de små hverdagsglimtene i andres liv, og omgjør de til den flotteste kunstverkene man har sett. Og det er det bare noen få som klarer å få til på en like lett og naturlig måte som nettopp det hun klarer. Er så glad for at det finnes mennesker som henne!"
