Vivian captured every moment of our wedding day perfectly. Vivian will make you feel comfortable in your photos and she will make sure you receive the kinds of image you are looking for. I’m so grateful that we chose her to be our photographer. It feels like we’ve known Vivian for years, we are so thankful to have gained a friend in the process who we hope will capture many more special moments of our family in the future. She is truly amazing!
It was such a pleasure having Vivian photograph our wedding. The collection of images she captured perfectly reflected the joyous occasion which was backdropped by a sparkling autumn day. We are so proud to share them with friends and family. She was very accommodating to our schedule as the day was hectic and in flux. We really appreciate her professionalism and care she took in her work. She did all the necessary prep work and location scouting prior to, and her follow up with us after was thorough and generous. We would not hesitate recommending Vivian to anyone looking for an all around terrific photographer. We are grateful for her talent and all her hard work.

We hired Vivian Kereki to photograph our wedding. She was easy and stress free to work with, which when planning a wedding is a God send! She captured all the photos we ask for and everything turned out great! Friends and family have all commented on how great the photos turned out. And I love that she gave us the digital shots afterwards! Vivian is pleasant, fun and professional to work with. I would (and have) recommend her to anyone!

Simply put, we had a wonderful experience with Vivian during our family portrait session. She was so relaxed and kind, making the session with a rambunctious one-year-old a very fun and stress-free experience. My husband and I were so happy with all of the photos. Vivian has an incredible talent for capturing the most amazing little moments. We would wholeheartedly recommend Vivian to anyone, and are already looking forward to our next session!
My wife and I had been looking to get professional pictures with our one year old son done for Mother’s Day. We had previously met Vivian while at the Mothering Touch Santa photo day and her picture of our son with Santa was fantastic. We thought we would give Vivian a shot for our Mother’s Day pictures and we were so happy we did. Vivian is personable and funny and kind and made us feel completely at ease during our time with her. She was professional in both her demeanour and in our follow up correspondences. And, ultimately the most important thing, her shots of our family were incredible. We had such a hard time choosing which ones to keep because we loved them all! Again, we were so happy to have met Vivian and to have her capture this time of our lives together and would recommend her highly to anyone who wants to work with a photographer who will capture the essence of your family.

If you are looking for a photographer who is creative, friendly, easy going, inspiring, and easy to work with then I HIGHLY recommend Vivian Kereki.
We had an amazing experience with Vivian for our newborn photo session. From the first phone call to the final photos she was great to work with. Very professional and very personable. As a new mom herself she was able to make me feel comfortable really understand what I was looking for in the photos. The only problem was that I loved all of the pictures so much I couldn’t pick just 5 so we ended up buying the whole portfolio!
If there is one person out there who can put a pregnant woman and a mother of a 3 week old at ease it is Vivian! My partner and I first hired Vivian to photograph a few pregnancy photos for us. We wanted someone who was relaxed, creative, and open to our suggestions. With Vivian that is exactly what we got. She knew we love the outdoors so she had us do our pregnancy shots in a beautiful outdoor space. The photos were absolutely stunning and we love looking at them time and time again. The second time we hired Vivian, it was to take some shots of our new family! I have to admit that as a new mother to a 3 week old the last thing I wanted was to have photographs taken, but Vivian made the experience so welcoming and easy. When our son was fussy she was so patient and nurturing. She made the entire experience an absolute pleasure and I can’t imagine NOT having the photographs of our beautiful new family at that stage.
Vivian Kereki is a wonderful and talented photographer. We have hired her twice now – the first time to take indoor pictures of our 3-month old baby and then again a year later for casual family shots by the seashore. In both cases, there were some challenges, i.e. sun in the eyes, engaging children, etc. However, the photos were excellent and really captured the essence of our family. Also, we appreciate that Vivian is willing to sell her digital shots (many professional photographers will only part with hardcopies). Vivian is very engaging and pleasant to work with. She is always professional but warm and personable too. We will definitely be repeat customers.
We had a small destination wedding in Hawaii but hired Vivian to photograph our wedding reception at home afterwards. She captured every important and entertaining moment of our party. I really wish that I would have flown her to Kona with us to photograph our wedding. Everyone commented on how much fun she was and we were absolutely blown away at how the pictures turned out. Vivian far exceeded my expectations in every possible way! I am so relieved and thankful that I had her there. Vivian has a high level of raw talent and an adorable personality to boot.
Vivian came to our house when our daughter was a week old and took the most beautiful pictures of her – we will treasure them forever. She was able to send the photos back to us within the promised time so that we could pass them on to excited family members as well. We are so happy with our experience with Vivian. She was very sweet and patient with our newborn (and us tired new parents). We would definitely recommend Vivian’s services to anyone!
I was extremely impressed with Vivian Kereki’s photography. She was very creative, easy to work with and the photographs turned out beautifully. I fully and confidently recommend her.
Vivian took absolutely beautiful wedding pictures, I couldn’t be happier. She is so easy to work with and gives direction well. I would recommend her to any of my friends or family.
She’s fantastic to work with and the results are just superb. We’ve worked with Vivian twice and look forward to the next times.
Oh my goodness, the pictures are stunning! Everything I hoped for and more, way more! The words ‘Thank You’ aren’t even big enough to tell you how appreciative I am of you for capturing these special moments for us. I checked out your blog and all the pictures and I can’t wait to look at them over and over again. I can’t thank you enough!! You’re work is absolutely incredible! As I told you before, Mark and I have never done anything like this before so we were really nervous. That didn’t show in the pictures at all, you truly captured who we are and our love for one another. Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~Candice Alexander
Really happy with the photos Vivian took of our family. She was very warm and comfortable, and made us all feel at ease, which is not always easy when you are having photo’s taken by someone you don’t know. I plan to have her take many more photos of our family as we grow, and would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thank you Vivian!
It was my dad’s 80th birthday and the first time in five years our whole family was able to get together, so we wanted to capture the occasion. And we’re so pleased we turned to Vivian to help us do that. Our schedule was tight, and she was accommodating from the start. She also put everyone at ease and managed to wrangle the dozen of us well enough to get some memorable photos. She got a great mix of all of us together, as well as each of our families separately in a relaxed yet professional way – just what we were looking for!
Vivian, truly worth every minute of waiting! Thank-you soo much for your beautiful work! These truly capture who we are and are exactly what I asked for and more! I will definitely be recommending your services to all I know!
