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!!!

- Anusha & Tyler, Toronto

Amazing! We had Camila photograph our wedding in Mexico 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!

- Aaron & Anna, Toronto/Mexico

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!!!

- Tiffanny, Buffalo

We are deeply grateful for your talent and dedication in photographing our spiritual wedding ceremony held at Praia de Toque-Toque Pequeno in São Sebastião. Your artistic images will allow us to relive these moments forever. We are very grateful to have had you as our photographer Camila.We recommend your work with our eyes closed.

- Renan & Lucas, Brazil

We asked Cami to do our engagement shoot and well as our wedding pictures (both in Canada and for our destination wedding in Punta Cana). It was a total of 3 days in Canada and a week in Punta Cana (see took shots throughout the trip in additional to the wedding day/rehearsal and an off-resort shoot). She took absolutely amazing pictures and captured of all our special moments absolutely perfectly. She felt like part of our family for the duration of all these events. She was personable, easy-going and remained professional all the way through. She did amazing work and knew how to capture the moments just perfectly. She was able to quickly get the enormous amount of pictures from all of these events to us very quickly after the wedding(s) as well. She is definitely someone we would highly recommend and we will definitely be reaching out to her to capture all our future special events. Thanks so much for everything Cami, we are so happy you were by our side to capture these special moments.

- Taskia & Devin, Toronto

Cami's work is spectacular. She made us feel so comfortable that we didn't even feel we were being photographed. But to me the most important is her eye and her sensibility to register the right moments at the right time. She also always seemed very confident in what she was doing which immediately put us at ease. On top of that, she's just an incredible person. I never get tired of looking at the photos of my wedding!

- Tuyla & Paulo, Brazil

Cami, we are incredibly happy with the pictures of our wedding. Just looked at them together with both our parents and relived that special moment again. You did an amazing job in capturing the emotions during the ceremony and also the pictures from the shooting in the blueberries are very beautiful. It's such a dear memory and your pictures will always remind us of it. Thank you so much! Everyone we showed our pictures to was very impressed. Thanks again for capturing these special moments for us! We wish you a great hike and hope to see you again in Oslo or elsewhere! Lots of love.

- Maarten & Franziska, Oslo

O. M. G. Cami. You are a ROCKSTAR!!!!!  These photos are absolutely amazing!!!! Thank you from the entirety of my heart! I don’t know how you managed to capture all of us so well, but you DID it!  xoxo

- Janet, Toronto

Cami, thank you so much for the perfect family captures!!! These images will be looked at for many years to come. We enjoyed seeing each one as a family and lots of little giggles reminiscing on those moments. Your talent continued to shine and we're so appreciative of these shots. Even as my oldest turned 10 a couple weeks ago, pulling some of her younger memories, your shots were the stars.

My family and I have been photographed by Camila for about 5 years. Camila has captured the most important times of our lives so we can always look back and re-live those moments. She does an amazing job transforming moments into life memories. She is an amazing photographer, very professional with reasonable pricing. My family and I love being photographed by Camila and we strongly recommend Bellatrix Photography!

Cami is extremely talented! We did a family photo session with her and we couldn't be happier with how the photographs turned out. She was able to capture such great moments for us. Looking forward to when she will be back in town next - we are hoping that Cami's sessions will become an annual tradition.

- Canny

Cami, again these pics are amazing!! We are so happy with them thank you SO SO much - you are so talented!!

Dear Camila, Jon Anders and I are looking at the photos from you, and we absolutely LOVE them! I have started hitting "favourite", and realized now that I have almost choose all the photos. So, thank you, thank you sooo much! We are so grateful and happy with the results! :) You are the best!  Love from us! 

- Camilla, Oslo

Cami is amazing at what she does! :) We did a one hour shoot with her and we’re so happy with the photos. My girls enjoyed the shoot so much (which can be challenging when they are 2 and 5 and it’s a little chilly out!) Cami kept all of us smiling and the pictures are stunning. We have so many ones that we want to frame. I’ve shown my friends and shared on social media and my friends and family have already asked for her contact. Can’t wait to shoot again with you when our third baby is here. Thanks again Cami, you’re the best.

- Joyce, Oakville

We cannot wait to have some prints for our walls!!  Huge hugs of gratitude to you!!

- Grace & Dominik, Toronto

Cami is everything that you would ever dream of getting in a wedding photographer. She makes you feel comfortable, and has an eye for capturing just the right emotions. Her camera says what words cannot always express. My husband and I are so grateful we chose her to capture our special day, and also our engagement photographs. She has remarkable talent.

- Angela & Stephen, Toronto

We had a wonderful time working with Cami, both during our engagement shoot and our wedding. Our wedding did rain and hail a bit in October, but we still managed to get a lot good photos with family and bridal party despite the weather. Our families & friends were very happy with the photos and the wedding album! We love how everything was captured and displayed in the album as if it was telling a story. She is quick to respond with e-mails/text/phone calls, unlike other vendors we had to deal with during our wedding planning. We were very pleased with Camila and would highly recommend Bellatrix Photography! :)

- Jenn & Eric, Toronto

A couple years ago, I tweeted out I needed a photographer in Toronto and Cami found me on Twitter. We had to postpone our wedding but she was very patient and I'm so glad we kept in touch. All her work from engagement photos and invitations to thank-you cards and wedding photos came out amazing. I can never thank Cami for all the amazing work she has done for us. I would definitely will use her again. From Wes and I, thank you, thank you, thank you. You are truly a talented and amazing woman.

- Carol & Wes, Toronto

Cami was a joy to work with. She is extremely talented, responsive, and professional. Love her photography style! She is so easy to be around and she made us feel at ease. The wedding albums and our framed picture, they are gorgeous! The pics of our engagement shoot and our guestbook also turned out great. Thank you so much Cami. I'm so glad we had you as our photographer to capture the special day for us. Thank you!

- Doris & Shawn, Toronto

As with most weddings there may be little hiccups along the way but Camila was very helpful and at the end of the day provided us with beautiful photos that both us and our families were very pleased with. She shared in our vision and added her own flare as well. Camila would get into any position, whether it be climbing ladders, or crawling on the ground, just to get the shot she was looking for! We would definitely recommend her!

- Kelly & Marc, Toronto

Cami was the best! My husband and I first got to know her at our engagement photo shoot in High Park. We did shop around a bit more for a wedding photographer since it is such an important decision but we were so happy with the engagement photos that we simply had to go back to Bellatrix Photography. Not only is Cami extremely talented but she is always willing to work with you. We had one of those traditional Indian wedding which meant a lot of days and a lot of events. Camila and her assistants worked with us on every level and we couldn't be happier with the photos! We highly recommend Bellatrix Photography!

- Farrah & Karim, Toronto

Cami shoot our wedding pictures in the region of La Huasteca in Mexico. She did and amazing job capturing all the perfect moments, prefect light, took the time and energy to help us getting together with all the people we cared about the most. She is super creative and makes sure to get every detail, was always willing to listen and capture the best of the best. We are so glad she was there for us that day. Thank you so much Cami!!!!!

- Andrea & Ricardo, Mexico

We were very pleased with Cami's level of professionalism and genuine interest to meet our needs. She is friendly, personable and has the ability to instantly put you at ease. This, in combination to her knack for taking beautiful pictures makes her the ultimate package. I would definitely recommend her services!

- Diana & Matthew, Toronto

Cami shot both our engagement photos and our mini wedding. We had to completely change our plans due to COVID and Cami was amazing at helping us along the way. We truly couldn't be more pleased with everything, the experience working with her and the amazing  photos she delivered to us. I'm in love with all of them! Can't thank you enough Cami!

- Anna Carolina & Marcelo, Brazil

I can't express how much my husband and I loved working with Cami. After meeting her while we were traveling in Brazil, we fell in love with her work and decided to fly her to Amsterdam to capture our wedding. We couldn't be happier with our choice! She's so friendly and so, so talented. We couldn't stop crying looking at our photos! Basically, we only have great things to say about Cami and highly recommend her as a wedding photographer.

- Sarai & Paul, Amsterdam

We met Cami when she first photographed my baby daughter during one of her summer seasons in Oslo. We loved her work so much that we hired her for the next couple of years to continue capturing our family. When my husband and I were ready to have our wedding ceremony, we imediately thought of Cami. As always, she went beyond our expectations during the day, not missing any important moment and giving us so many amazing photos to remember the day. Cami, we just loved having you as our wedding photographer! Thank you!!!

- Eline & Herman, Oslo

Cami was such a pleasure to work with! She responds quickly and offers many options/solutions. She made me and my husband feel very comfortable and all the photos turned out so natural. She really captured our special day beautifully. She understood our vision well, provided good direction to get everyone organized for photos, and the resulting pictures were perfect.

"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!"
