One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is

receiving your emails with all of your kind words and gratitude.

It touches me deeply

seeing that you are happy with the work I do.

Preserving your memories for you to cherish, pass it down and keep them forever is an honor for me.

Yulia!!! They’re beautiful!!! I’m so glad we crossed paths, I couldn’t have imagined anyone else taking these pictures, you really have an amazing talent! Thank you so much for being there on our special day!



Yulia captured our Whistler Elopement beautifully! The pictures turned out absolutely stunning and they were presented in such a manor on our slideshow that our family will forever be able to feel as though they too were apart of our special day. She captured the pure emotion and love between us and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! She’s beyond talented and has a true eye for beauty in her photos! We will forever be going back to Yulia in the future for any professional photos we need!

CARRIE & KYLE |Aspens, Wedding Photography

Yulia, both Kyle and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You're incredibly talented, and we feel so fortunate to have found you.  Your attention to the details of the venue with your advance planning showed caring that went over and above the call of duty.


As well, your keen eye and gifts as a documentary photographer captured moments that we’ll now have preserved forever.  You will live on, in our photographs, as the person on the other side of the camera who lovingly created lasting memories for us.


Thank you, thank you, thank you.  We'll recommend you to everyone.  We will hire you.  You're amazing and we look forward to hearing of all your successes, as you’re recognized as one of the West Coast’s most outstanding documentary photographers!

First impressions:

Whistler seems such a long time ago, it was so lovely to watch your video slideshow today, I'm at work and have watched it over and over already, I love it!! To be honest, it brought a tear to my eye, it was such a lovely day, very happy snowy memories made!

Thank you so much!

Sarah & Mark



We have finally got round to printing our wedding photos, the choice was incredible! We spent only 1 hour with Yulia on an exceptionally snowy day at Alta Lake in Whistler, she captured some amazing moments for us and our family and created a beautiful fun slide show that we can't stop watching. Yulia was recommended to us for her 'story telling and very natural photography and we can definitely say she did just that. 

We didn't meet Yulia until we came over from the UK for the wedding, but she took the time to talk with us beforehand and knew that we wanted an informal and fun ceremony. She was so friendly and during the brief time she shared with us on the day - we didn't even know she was there, a true professional. Her follow-up back in the UK was priceless as she was wonderful in keeping in touch with us. Mark and I would highly recommend Yulia and wish her every success for the future.

First impressions:

Thank you so much, Yulia. I was planing to wait for Felipe to see the video together but I couldn't wait longer. You make me cry... Thank you! Jimena



We absolutely love the way she works. We contact Yulia one day before our wedding I'd send her a txt explaining that we were getting married next day and I was hoping she would have some time to take couple photos (10)just to have some memories. The next day she saw me at the flower shop before the agreed time and from there with no one asking her she began to capture those special moments and I was really surprised because we were supposed to meet until the wedding it was an extra effort from her.
Like most of the people mentioned you don't even notice that she is there, normally photographs ask you to pose Yulia just takes real life emotions and moments we just enjoy the day and the result was amazing she even thought about our first dance when she send us the video with some of the photos ... the couple photos that I'd ask her turn into hundred and because my family was leaving soon she works so hard and fast so we saw all the photos before they were gone. 
Thanks again Yulia you are so talent

Yulia, thank you so much for the photos! 
They are amazing and we absolutely loved working with you. We are so grateful for the beautiful memories of our wedding day. 
We hope to work with you again soon!
Sonja and Alex 


Dear Yulia – we are so thrilled with the photo’s and enjoying reliving the beautiful day through your work. I think you have little girls so you know the intense love between a mother and her daughters – you have captured this so well and remind us how lucky we are.

Very best wishes to you – I will look for another opportunity for you to take photos!



Yulia – you have captured the essence of such a perfect day – and of so many people we love! Thank you for taking such exquisite photos and putting them together in the slideshow. I am excited to see the rest of the photos.


With appreciation,


MARISSA & ANDREW | Nita Lake Lodge, Wedding


First impressions:

Yulia thank you so much, the video is amazing! We absolutely love it, you did an amazing job! 



Yulia is very friendly and professional. She has done an amazing job on our wedding photo's, more then we expected. She tells the story rather then just taking posed photo's. Everyone who we shown the photo's had the feeling that they were there, which is what we wanted since some of our family members couldn't be there. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

BELINDA & MARK | Family Photo session, Whistler


First impressions:

Wow! Yulia! Thank you so much! This is truly the best gift we've ever been given! You brought me to tears of joy! I'm not sure if l can ever repay you for your kindness and generosity. You are such an incredible soul and we are forever grateful!



Yulia has the most incredible gift. She is the silent photographer that captures your moments as you spend time together as a family. We had a morning enjoying our usual activites and Yulia simply followed us around and l was gobbsmacked at how incredible the photos looked. So natural, beautiful and capturing our special moments without any interruptions. I would highly recommend Julia Gladysheva and would happily use her again too.

CLAIRE & GRAHAM | Wedding, Pemberton



Yulia is a truly gifted photographer ! She has her own beautiful way to translate emotions into images. We are so lucky to have had her as our wedding photographer. We absolutely love the wedding slide show she put together as it totally reflected the energy of one of the most important day in our life ;) Yulia is passionate, professional and discreet Graham and I are highly recommending her !

SHERIDAN | Woman Portrait, Whistler



Yulia played a lot of roles for me while I lived in Whistler. She was a Friend and over a few months became my Boss, and my Village Mother who offered me guidance and warm hugs. I had seen her photography displayed at The Whistler Tea House and her Facebook Page. I asked if she could take my photos for my website and blog. It was a natural, easy going shoot and Yulia was able to capture many natural elements of Whistler and surrounds in my photos. I still remember how excited she was, editing my photos and sending me messages to let me know they were on their way. 

I was incredibly happy with them, and happy that I have them as wonderful memories. The photos are now on my website, and I have used them to print my own Business cards. 

I would highly recommend Yulia Gladysheva Photography


LANA | Woman Portrait, Whistler



Yulia is an amazingly passionate photographer who possesses a rare ability to capture the brightest emotions of the moment. While working with her clients, she fully dedicates herself to the creative process of seeing the story and its invisible details through the lens of her camera. As one of her extremely appreciative clients, I would recommend Yulia to any of my friends... or anyone else who is looking for a professional photographer who really loves what she does. Thanks Yulia, you're the greatest!

LADY & ARTHUR| Family Photo session, Whistler



We’ve worked with many photographers and our experience with Yulia was far the best! We love her style of capturing photos in natural lighting. We can’t wait to work with her again and again!


MARIE & JOE | Family Photo session, Whistler



We had the pleasure of having Yulia for our two family photo sessions. And she always did an amazing job capturing all of our special moments.
Yulia is very friendly, and easy to work with, she is also quite a natural person so you barely notice her while she is shooting. Our children feel comfortable around her and are always themselves. Her style is incomparable to others we know from Whistler, and that's what my husband and I value most about her work. She is a great observer and anticipator of what could happen on the front of the lens, and also she is not afraid to use different angles to take the shot. She is very creative and using all her senses to not miss the moment and get the shot. 
We are very happy with how our photos turned out, and have confidently recommended to other couples for any family, wedding, or commercial photos!

Whistler Tennis Academy| Kids Camp, Whistler



Yulia has been shooting our kids tennis camps for three summers now. Her photos are always special because they capture the special moments that happen with kids - not just the main activity but all of the interesting things that happen in the background. She is a pleasure to work with!

KELLY | Woman Portrait, Whistler



Yulia is an unparalleled talent! Her photography is a gift to anyone blessed to work with her. She is an artist. Thank you Yulia. From a person who shudders to have her picture taken, I loved the experience and I love my headshots! 

Whistler Library| Muliticultural Festival, Whistler



Absolutely amazing photographer - we asked her to take pictures for Whistler Multicultural Festival. She was great, very professional and almost invisible. Capturing the right moments in the right time, perfectly understood the idea of capturing the multiculturalism. Yulia delivered the pictures very quickly after the festival in great quality and amount. We have been super happy with her services!!!
