“You have to be confident in who you are-And that’s not your physical self, who you are is what you give” – Sue Bryce
Hi there! My name is Genelle Giblett and I am a professional Wedding and Engagement Photographer based in Prince Albert. I photograph weddings throughout Saskatoon, Prince Albert, and Waskesiu. I am the Owner, Operator, Sole Photographer and Graphic Designer for Genelle Amber Photography (Formerly Wayward Soul Foto & Design Studio). Although based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan I do travel. I’ve had the pleasure and opportunity to photograph weddings in Jasper, Edmonton, Mexico and all over Saskatchewan.
I moved to Prince Albert 7 years ago to live with my now husband Jeff and that’s when my business was born. Three and half years ago we added our little Norman to the mix our handsome and loving little Shih tzu pup and recently we had a little baby boy. Love seeing our family grow!
I am incredibly excited to welcome you to my website and thank you for viewing my work. I pour my heart and soul into each and every wedding and session. My clients are exceptionally special to me, and I love bringing out the very best in them. The images we create together are works of art that will last a lifetime. And because we create art together, I can say I am not a shoot and burn type photographer… every image that leaves my studio is tended to, worked on and is something both myself and my clients can be proud of. What you see in my portfolio is what I submit to my clients!

In 2007 I graduated from Robert Morris University in Chicago, Illinois; where I received a four year bachelor degree in Graphic Design with a concentration in Photography. I moved back to Saskatchewan where I soon found myself in Saskatoon at a job that I loved at the time… but I wanted more. One weekend, in March of 2011, I took a chance and attended a Photographers Summit full of amazing speakers, photographers and enlightening ideas. As I sat in my chair, pen to paper, I listened to the key-note speaker Mike Colon speak his story. With every word he spoke my feelings of uncertainty and terror slowly started to dissipate. My thoughts of terror were quickly taken over by thoughts of what if… What if I quit my “secure” job and started my own business? And then Mike said something, a sentence that gave me a “aha” moment. (You know, the ones Oprah talks about.) He made a change because he wanted to fall in love with life everyday. I ate that statement up! His enlightening talk pointed me to Wayward Soul. So… I did it. I took those freelance jobs I was doing on the side and created a full time business. Wayward Soul Foto & Design was created on merely a dreamers dreams, made reality. And years since, I have realized that the name I chose for my business wasn’t at all a good representation of me. So I have since re-branded… welcome to Genelle Amber Studios!
