Thank you Joel Thomas for capturing every happy moment of my day. You took amazing photos that show the love me and my husband had. I will remember the joys of that day forever. You went above and beyond all expectations of a photographer. Thank you for everything that you have done.

I had Joel make me a retirement collage. It included 14 individual pictures and Joel did amazing. Joel is very professional, promptly responded to my email and had the collage made in a day. I would highly recommend Joel for any photography job big or small. Thank you Joel.

We were privileged to have Joel as our photographer for our son's outdoor birthday party. Joel has a very keen eye to capture the many aspects of our gathering to create wonderful memories that will be preserved on film for a lifetime. His incredible attention to detail has allowed us to relive this very special day over and over in his fabulous photography. We found Joel to be very polite, kind and flexible. We appreciated his high level of professionalism. We highly recommend this service!

Joel Thomas, had replied to a post I had made offering a free Christmas photography session for my son and I, as we are a low income family. He came to my home and was a pleasure to work with for both my son and I. I was very much enthused with many ideas he had and how many of my ideas he incorporated in the session as well. The pictures came out great, just in time to make my sons first Christmas more memorable for the both of us.

I would highly recommend Joel Thomas and Keepsake Memories!!! Thank you Joel for helping to make our day simply amazing!!!!

Joel Thomas video recorded our wedding from the ceremony right through to our reception, he even stayed part of the reception to capture some guests enjoying the party. I was pleased with the timeline of receiving our wedding video, it came to us in great time, well before our photos. Joel even captured some still photos of my wedding party at the in between cocktail hour. He was very professional.

Our photographer Joel Thomas, came in the day prior to see where he was setting up, stayed the whole afternoon to help us set up and decorate, went out of his way, took all of our wedding photos, and family pics and picture requests through the entire day, he made our day so easy, fun and absolutely perfect.

Joel...did some pictures for us...the pictures turned out great...even though we chose the coldest day ever...it was very hard to pretend it wasn't cold, but Joel captured some great pictures...we definitely gave up on the weather before he did. He had some good ideas and took our suggestions and came up with some great pictures for us.

To whom it may concern,

Joel took pictures of several residents at Maple Tree Apartments. We were very pleased with his professional approach to the project. The assignment was completed on time with excellent results. Joel made it a fun experience for everyone. He used his creativity to provide different shots of the families and individuals. I was impressed by the extra time Joel took to make sure one of the families had the extra pictures that they wanted.We would certain recommend Joel as a responsible and talented photographer.

This letter is to convey our gratitude for the photography/video services that were provided by Joel Thomas of Keepsake Memory and Cataloging Services for our Soup Saturday fund-raiser in Goderich this past November. He captured our event well and we are thrilled with the results. We are grateful to him for offering his services to our Charitable Fund on a complimentary basis as we are often stretched beyond budget for these events and any support from local businesses is greatly appreciated and always welcomed.


It is with great pleasure that I recommend Joel Thomas for employment. I have known Joel for more than 2 years as an occasional volunteer with the Society.

Joel has been contributing to the charitable work of the Society in several capacities including computer, technical support, photography, video and audio recording of special events. His commitment of time is a wonderful gift that helps the lives of many.

Joel always displays an extremely high degree of integrity, moral character and responsibility. In addition to his accomplishments, he has proven his compassion for others by donating photography sessions to marginalized families for special occasions.

During his time of volunteering, we've come to know Joel as respectful, conscientious and loyal worker, always punctual and possessing excellent organizational skills.

Joel would be an asset to any organization and I am happy to give him my endorsement.

In summary, I highly recommend Joel for any position or endeavor that he may seek to pursue. He will be a valued asset for your organization.
