As I look at the family portraits that hang on a wall in our home, I think, “These are some of the best ways we’ve spent our money.” Sandra Leung beautifully preserves precious, passing moments in our lives—for us, a priceless work of art to treasure across our lifetimes—and something that may even bless future generations. Our wiggly and restless seven-year-old son Joey is exasperatingly hard to photograph! Sandra has been able to capture the essence of who he is by catching his adorable, mischievous smile. I have stood for many bio shots through the years as a minister, author, and speaker. Sandra is far and away the best photographer I have ever met. She puts me at ease and through her relaxed, joyful, and uplifting manner and truly makes the “shoot” a pleasure. She brings out a person’s best side. In fact, I have been so impressed with Sandra’s work that we’ve also hired her to take bio photographs about 40 of my working colleagues. If you’re looking for a photographer for a family or professional portrait, there’s no one I recommend more highly than Sandra!

I recently had Sandra photograph me to update my corporate bio picture, and I couldn't be more pleased. She has an uncanny ability to excute exactly what I had envisioned for my photos. I had tried another photographer prior to Sandra and found the experience very frustrating. I highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking for new photos. Her artistic eye and ability to listen to your needs is truly what made my experience with her so memorable. I loved so many of the pictures, it was hard to narrow them down.

Sandra, thank you for an awesome photo session with my corporate team. We all had lots of fun and can't wait to see the result of your genius! You are such a pleasure to work with - full of positive energy, professional, and so gracefully confident. Hope I will have more opportunity to engage you in other photoshoots - corporate or personal!

A last minute need for professional headshots had me calling Yaletown Photography on a referral from a friend. From that very first call, Sandra made me—a not-photogenic, picture-shy gal—feel like the shoot would at least be survivable. Well, that’s an understatement. Within minutes of the shoot starting, Sandra had me laughing, smiling and completely relaxed. I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot and had FUN! And the resulting photographs were fantastic! Just want I wanted—natural looking but beautifully shot and formatted. Working with Sandra was a true pleasure and I will continue using Yaletown Photography for my photographs in the future.

Sandra planned our outdoor photo shoot well (we were able to make use of a short period of good weather), she was well prepared with respect to equipment, the location and timing, she always responded to queries timely, she was very supportive in making the final photo choices and great to work with overall.
