What are clients saying about Ilona...
Updated: Oct 17, 2019
"My expectations were not just met, but exceeded"
"My family has not had a portrait done in over 20 years, Ilona Kohlmann was able to source a spectacular location much nicer than a back drop, and created some stunning images for us including our two family dogs.
The exceptional experience [that] was provided got my whole family involved, resulting in some outstanding family photos that we will cherish forever.
Ilona was able to manage both my parents and their dogs to create some memories frozen on paper and canvas that we will proudly display for years to come.
Both myself and each of my parents commented on what a wonderful experience that was provided, and how well the end result shows through her work.
I would wholeheartedly refer Ilona Kohlmann to any friends or family looking to have exceptional memories and a brilliant photographer for any occasion or photography needed."
-- Justin McMaster, McMaster Technical Services
"There are many reasons why people want family pictures. In my case, the reasons were:
- To have a photo of four generations with my mother, daughter, granddaughter and myself;
- To have an updated photo of our "blended family" including our children's partners.
After completing a One on One meeting with Ilona and hearing how she likes to be creative with her photography and make everyone feel like a model, we booked a sunny fall day for an outdoor photo shoot.
With 11 participants, one under 1-years-old and another 83-years-old, there were some limitations, however, the final result was spectacular. A backdrop of fall colours and everyone with a smiling face. Ilona convinced us all that perfection is possible! It may have taken a little artistic magic... but the results look very natural!
Thank you Ilona for providing us with photograph[ed] memories that are priceless! We will certainly recommend your services to others."
-- Cindy and Bob Dubray, Spire Commercial Real Estate
"In July I suddenly decided I needed some new photos of our automotive shop for a presentation, which was a week away! I asked Ilona if it was possible to get photos done in one week, and she agreed to do it. She worked all weekend finishing my photos, and the results were truly amazing! Ilona took creative shots from all angles, lying on the floor in one corner for a panoramic shot of the shop [and] on the floor under a vehicle; Ilona used her creative skills to make my auto repair shop like like art!
Last week, I decided to ask Ilona to capture photos of our employees for a project for us on social media. Once again, Ilona made a trip up to our shop to capture the best expressions I have seen on all of my staff, and again we have stunning professional photos for use on our wall, our website, social, media, and more!
Ilona, I am impressed not only by your talent and creative ability but also how you put your heart and soul into the process of creating remarkable photos! Thank you Ilona - it is has been an honour to have you create a "Peace of Art" for Precision. I will happily speak about your talent to others and refer them to you!"
-- Carol Schurink, Precision Alignment & Brake Ltd.

"It was such a pleausre to work with Ilona, she has this subtle way of putting you at ease and bring[ing] out the best in a person. My expectations were not just met but exceeded! I proudly use the final image in all my advertising and get many compliments on it!"
