Meet Eileen

I am Eileen Patel, the face behind Retrospekt Photography. I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer from Edmonton, Alberta. Photography is truly my dream job and I am so happy and fortunate that I adore what I do. I love easily and cherish the deep connections that I have with my family and friends. I genuinely want everyone around me to be happy…I will be your cheerleader for life. These are the reasons that weddings resonate with me so much. I get to learn so much about my couples…what they do for fun, how they make each other laugh and how they connect emotionally.

When I learn about how someone met, how they are connected, and what they mean to each other, I get inspired and I want to hear more about their story. It sounds a bit cheesy and cliche but I love watching two people in love. My goal is to create emotional, beautiful and timeless photographs for you.

My work has been published in Blush Magazine, Bridal Fantasy Magazine and Canadian Mountain Chic.
