Wow! We came to Golden for a few nights and only two weeks before thought it might be nice to book some family portraits. Luckily for us, the downturn in large events meant Amy was available. She accommodated our son’s nap schedule and made it very easy by coming to us for an hourlong shoot on the property we’d rented for the weekend. Using the natural landscape and her years of experience working with families, she got some absolutely stunning shots of our pouty toddler and even managed to crack some smiles out of him by the end of the session. She let us feel really natural just throwing stones in the river and checking out wildflowers while she snapped away in the background.

We would absolutely hire Amy again if we’re in the area for another family trip!

Loved having Amy do our wedding. She was professional and helped work with us through our postponing and all the changes we had to make. Loved her work and she is a great person.

I wasn’t even sure I wanted to spend the money on a photographer for a small wedding but I am SO glad that I did. Amy was the most amazing photographer I could have imagined. She was so much fun to have as part of our day, and convinced us to take photos I would have never thought of but they turned out amazing. I didn’t cry on my wedding day but I cried when I saw my photos. She was also very quick at getting them done. I was expecting to wait at least a few weeks but had then in just over a week. I would recommend her to anyone needing photos and would use her for anything/everything

Amy captured our wedding at a cottage in Golden. Without having to go up to the top of kickinghorse, Amy was able to create stunning and dramatic photos from the village on the hill with the mountain and snow landscape. Could not have asked for better photos (which are now blown up in canvases and hanging on my wall). Photos from getting ready, having fun with bridal party, and the ceremony were all excellent. To top that off, Amy’s pricing was terrific and she knew just what to say to ensure we turned out our best in the photos (which is something we def needed!). Amy spent more time with us than I expected and was a complete pleasure to work with.
Recommend all the way!

Amy was simply fantastic! She was flexible with our schedule and our wishes. The best part about working with her is that she was super fun and obviously loves her craft. We absolutely loved all of her photos. The hardest part now is picking the ones we want to frame. Thanks Amy!!! Full Wedding Here


- Venessa & Collin


We are so pleased with our wedding photos. Amy did an amazing job capturing our special day. Our original wedding plan was a helicopter ride to a mountain top. Due to bad weather we had to change the plan last minute. Amy was super accomodating.
We were so happy with our wedding photos we hired Abarrett Photography for a family photo session. They are great!
We are so fortunate to have these photos to reminise the memories of our special times.

Looking for a Photographer that fit our wants for our big day (May 20, 2017 Hillside Lodge & Chalets Golden) and someone that we were comfortable with was a hard task initially. After several meetings with other photographers and not being totally satisfied we came across  A Barrett Photography. Our wedding was only months away we inquired with our wedding planner (Susan Bateman, Golden Dreams) who absolutely confirmed she was a good fit and encouraged us to contact her, we contacted Amy immediately.
First off she was a local to Golden which was more than we were expecting from our photographer, reasonably priced and available. After some short back and forth online correspondence and her suggestion of taking our engagement photos while boarding at Kicking Horse (seriously? heck ya!). We went all in and planned a trip to Golden to do our engagement session snowboarding at Kicking Horse. We met  Amy for the first time that day and although nervous at first as soon as we found her at the chair lift and rode up we knew we made the right choice. She knew the ‘right’ places to have the photos taken, was easy to work with, be around and also a pro skier so beware (jk).  Seriously though we got professional photos taken while snowboarding and it was only a couple hours out of our day!
We didn’t want the standard wedding photos and my husband was apprehensive of the typical and often not natural staged wedding photos. We were looking for a laid back, natural, candid and personal feel; all these elements were accomplished both during our engagement photos and on our wedding day.
The Big Day. Amy was professional and fun throughout. She kept everyone in line and gave direction when needed. We hiked down to the Blaeberry River and the pictures were so crazy good that they look fake, blue sky, river and mountains with a bunch of our well dressed best friends. Im guessing many photographers wouldn’t have wanted to make the hike or even thought to go to the river but her local expertise and adventurous attitude is so special. I cannot emphasize enough that her local knowledge benefited us along with her love for the outdoors. She encouraged us to stay on site for our photos vs leaving the venue and taking time away from our guests, bonus. We got things done as quick as we could and did not feel rushed. Amy snuck us away at dusk to take some one-on-one photos that again have an unbelievable back drop especially when combined with the sunset, they’re pretty spectacular. Amy was able to capture the details that were important to us that included decor, guests and all the smiles and candid shots of our loved ones; the backdrop to our pictures at Hillside Lodge & Chalets could not be beat on May 20, 2017!
Amy’s fun, adventurous and familiar with Golden’s special spots. Amy was easy to work with and captured our day that would have otherwise been a simply a blur of awesome. When we look back at the photos it takes us back to that sunny mountain May Long Day with all our family and friends and we can relive it through Amy’s work; we didn’t even notice her taking most of these wonderful pictures. If we were looking to have professional photos taken again family or otherwise we would make the 6 hour drive from Sherwood Park to use A Barrett Photography in Golden, no question. Thank you, Amy we look forward to another adventure with you one day.

- Heather & Ray

Thank you so much for catching so many special moments Amy! As we looked through the photos we were amazed at how much you caught on camera for us. We can’t express in words how much the pictures you took mean to us!! It was an absolute delight to work with you.

- Sarah & Jason

We don’t know where to start with how pleased we were to have Amy with us on our day. Amy was able to be there with us the entire day and was versatile with each location we shot. Amy’s ability to capture the moment in each shot was perfect and we couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out. Amy herself was a pleasure to be with, she not only kept us smiling through the photos, but was extremely professional as well. We know there are many options when it comes to photographers, but we can assure you that there will be no disappointment when it comes to Amy.

- Simona & Tim

Amy is so wonderful to work with! She captured our engagement and wedding photos, and they are all stunning!  Amy had no problems hiking or getting down to get that great shot, which makes her an amazing photographer. We are not from the area so any questions or concerns about photography or other she answered quickly to truly made my wedding experience worry free. She has great ideas for photos and they are truly unique. Thank you so much for capturing these beautiful memories of our special day!

- Genna & Kyle

We had the pleasure of working with Amy for our winter wedding. We planned our wedding mainly by correspondence and due to our busy schedules never had the chance to take Amy up on her offer to get some engagement photos done before the big day. So we met her the day of our wedding and it was wonderful. She exceeded our expectations and took a great variety of photos. Our schedule, like so many weddings, got behind compared to our original plan but she was so patient as she waited for me to finish getting ready and took so many wonderful pictures of the details that I am grateful to have to relive the day.

Our photos are stunning and we get so many compliments on them. Amy did a great job of not only capturing us on our day but also our families, bridal party and candid shots of our guests. It was special to see moments that happened around us that we didn’t have the chance experience for ourselves. She also does an incredible job of capturing the scenery. Part of the reason we chose Eagle Eye Restaurant was for the magical backdrop and Amy really went above and beyond to help us preserve the view in our photos. We have pictures from all times of the day including late into the evening when the stars were out and most photographers have gone home. This extra effort and key eye for the mountains and the sky are exactly why we’d recommend Amy to you. We had a hard time deciding which photos to enlarge on canvas in our home because so many were breathtaking and the quality even enlarged held the integrity of the original photo down to the smallest of star. Amy and her work are worth it.

Hi Amy, Scott and I went through the usb of photos last night and we wanted to send you a note to say thanks again for capturing our day so beautifully. We also love the selection of photos that you posted on the website for us to share with family and friends – we showed a slideshow on the weekend at a family gathering and some tears were shed – the candid moments you caught have given our loved ones the opportunity to share the day with us and we’re so grateful for that. We’re also blown away by the great shots you got using the reflections on the water and capturing the fall colours and mountain backdrops. In a beautiful setting like the Blaeberry it’s easy to look at photos and think that they don’t do the scenery justice, but honestly we looked at your photos and thought that the scenery almost doesn’t do the photos justice! There were so many details in the scenery that we never even picked up on until we saw them reflected so beautifully in your photos.Thank you for your amazing work, we couldn’t be happier!

- Bethany & Scott

Hi Amy, Will and I received our wedding pictures. We couldn’t be more happy with them. It’s nice to see our love for each other captured through your pictures. It’s also nice to see that you captured a few “funnies” and sent them our way, it really captures our family dynamic. It was so lovely to work with you, and sometimes we didn’t even know you were there taking pictures, some of those are my favorites.
Amy is amazing to work with, Will and I couldn’t of asked for a  better person to have capture our day. We look forward to working with Amy for future projects! Thank you Amy for all that you do, and thank you for capturing our day.

- Alaina & Will


Amy did a fantastic job at our wedding. We held it far from our home so we did not meet her until the day of. She was professional, friendly and quick to reply. She exceeded our expectations. I would absolutely recommend her.

- Nicole & Christian


Amy was excellent to work with. She was very responsive to my special requests and was great at taking photographs in the mountain environment. She was also incredibly pleasant  to work with and was the fairest priced photographer I could find in the area of Golden. I couldn’t give Amy a high enough recommendation!

- Kristin & Dan


Amy did a fantastic job with our wedding photos. From the moment we met her we knew she was perfect for our wedding.
We planned our wedding from a distance and it was really easy to communicate with Amy.
She has a breadth of knowledge in photography, local hot spots, and a very keen eye for lighting! Oh and she’s so much fun!! We loved her so much we are always following her new photos and intend to use her services for our other life events!!

- Emily & Jurgen

Dear Amy, We can not thank-you enough for being the amazing part of our wedding that you were. Hanging out with you and taking pictures was so much fun, the photos you took are absolutely stunning! We are getting tones of compliments on them and I can’t wait to frame one and hang it up in our home. Thank you for everything you did!

Amy~ Thank you so much for your awesome ‘eye’ on our wedding. You captured the feeling of the day perfectly. Although the day was “damp’ the pics were clear and beautiful and caught the emotions being felt on our amazing day. Thank you so much!

- Shannon & Kevin


Amy, You are amazing. Thank you dearly for the photos. I will be focusing again on the festival and the website more, after our wedding Sept. 26th. I will upload the photos to a viewer on our website and be sure to have a link to your website. I would like to feature you in an interview also. Stay tuned. LOVE YOU!!!!! Your gift was incredible and you made this “legit” through your professional, compassionate and loving eye.

Wow Amy!  Thank you so much.  The pictures are so great!
It was really fun to ski with you and we really appreciate all those pictures.
We have already enjoyed the link with all our friends and family during our buddymoon in Canmore.
We are now back in Fernie and going to settle into our new life. Big thanks for Amy Barrett Photography!


- Lu & Jer

Thank you so much Amy!
The photos are beautiful… more than we could hope for.

- Leah & Grahm


Amy is an amazing photographer. She is so friendly & made us feel so comfortable. She captured our mountain wedding beautifully. If I lived closer I would definitely use her again. Highly recommend her to anyone getting pictures done in Golden, BC.

Oh Amy they are all gorgeous!! Better then I could ever imagine. Thank you so much!

- Lisa-Ann & Joshua


Amy both Brett and I want to thank you so much for what you did for us . I loved Brett first as a boy and then my life long dream came true , I got to love him again as a man . Every day since Brett asked me to be his wife I had to pinch myself to make sure it was true ….and it was!  When we first decided to elope the main thing for us was to make sure we caught our day in pictures for our family to see, to see how in love we were and you did IT!!!! I could see the love in Brett’s eyes when he looked at me and our families seen how happy we were and I will be forever grateful to you for these wonderful memories. I am not the girl that likes to be in front of a camera but the minute you walk in the door you made the both of us feel so comfortable and I felt like I knew you all my life. You were so genuine and I loved your sense of humour and the love you have for the outdoors and what you do. Amy I could never say it enough but Thank You.



- Donna & Brett


Traveling from the UK to get married at Emerald Lake, local photographers were unknown to us. After searching online and contacting a few Photographers we decide on Amy. We loved the photos shown on her website of her previous work and she set up a package that worked for us. She clearly has a passion for photography and a great eye that made her photographs slightly different to the others we had seen.

We didn’t meet with Amy before the big day, however she was very helpful in her emails, also giving us advice where needed.

When Amy arrived at my room, she instantly made me feel at ease and just set about snapping away without us even noticing she was there. Throughout the course of the Ceremony she worked wonders taking great pictures of us along with our Guests, again without being imposing or us realizing that she was even with us still!

Although we only had Amy for a few hours, she really managed to capture the feeling and emotion of the day in photograph. Amy has put together a beautiful slide show of the big day for us, and everyone that has seen this have said how beautiful and emotional it was, I would say this is testament to her great eye and the quality of her work.

I am constantly saying how glad we are that we chose Amy to capture our day for us, and will be forever grateful to her for the amazing photos she took! Kindest regards,

- Samantha & Samuel
