About

Photography as a Service to Others


Back in college, I was in love with Christ. In fact, there was no time in my childhood and youth hood when I disliked God. I prayed, worshipped, shared gospels wholeheartedly. Until one day, I began questioning Him. I was wary, anxious, and disappointed on how my life turned out. I asked, "Where are you God?" I felt alone...


I believe that some of us might feel the same way. Loneliness can be scary and it can influence our decisions on how to act and react to our surroundings. You don't have to feel that way. As you journey through RCIA, family life, or even romantic relationships, Griselda Portraits is here for you.


Together we can pray, learn more about the Catholic faith, and get to know Him better. Griselda serves others through photography and we would love to meet you and hear your stories. You are not alone, we're here to help.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Guiding Principles

We do our best to...


We strive to bring clients closer to God. It brings us joy to be with clients who get to know Him better everyday. As we take photos of you and your loved ones, we encourage you to pray and prepare your hearts for the special moments.


We strive to deliver romantic, natural, and creative photos to our clients. Griselda loves candid looks, such as natural laughs, dancing acts, and children playing around. We want to ensure that you feel comfortable during the photoshoot.

We stay away from...


We refuse to be transactional where everything is about cost and revenue. This type of relationship will focus too much on efficiency, and less about helping others. We believe that everyone is a member of the body of Christ and so, we'd love to personalize the experience for them.


We refuse to be disrespectful nor indifferent on Catholic teachings. Especially for events inside the Church, we recognize it as the house of God and therefore, we will respect the rules about flashes, altar boundaries, etc. It is our intention to be faithful to God.


about griselda portraits

Griselda


Hi, Griselda here. It means Grey Battle in German. I know limited German – for example, I can say “Meine Deutsche ist eine Katastrophe.” Joke aside, I know many languages: Bahasa Indonesia as my native language, English, Japanese, French, Spanish. In short, I love cultures.


My favorite cities are Venice and Kyoto. Both have rich cultures, beautiful natures, and spectacular culinary. In fact, that’s how I see the world. I tell romantic, dreamy, and classic stories based on what I see, what I hear, and what I experience.


I’m called to serve through my photography works. I usually take time to talk to my clients, getting to know them better. At times I also pray for them because we cannot do things alone; we need God’s grace. My go-to prayers are Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be when I prepare for my photoshoot.


As a client, you can expect great photo session, beautiful pictures, and attentive service from Griselda Portraits. When you follow me on social media, you can also expect regular prayer, referrals to Edmonton-based services, and music recommendations.


Talk to you soon!


Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.
