“John, I am still emotional. You and you wife along with Santa made our 4 year old feel so special. He talked about the whole experience the entire hour and 45 min drive home. He was so joyful and love the time with Santa. Myself, aww how do I even begin to express how much it meant in on many levels. It will forever be in my heart. You are talented, professional and a very kind man. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” – Sherry Sparks

“Truly Magical”


Welcome to the premiere Santa Claus Experience in Ontario brought to you by John Wills Photography. Our charming home studio in Guelph, Ontario has allowed us to create more than just pictures, but family heirlooms, for hundreds of families in the Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo areas, including Cambridge, Oakville and Georgetown.

Imagine a Place Where Christmas Magic Exists

Guelph Childrens Photographers

Can you imagine a place where the magic and wonder of Santa comes alive? The Ultimate Santa Experience is just that, and will be one of the brightest moments of your child’s holiday season! Past clients have shared with us that their child’s belief in the magic of Santa lasted even longer because of their magical moments with Santa in our studio. In our studio we specialize in a variety of high-end family and child holiday photo sessions, but our personalized Santa Claus Experience is a unique event that will be a favourite memory for years!

Our Santa Claus Experience is above and beyond the average pictures with Santa. Santa, “the real Santa Claus” is coming from the North Pole to visit with your family. Picture the excitement of your child catching their first glimpse of Santa, finding their name on his nice list, reading a story with Saint Nick himself, and sneaking a peek into his velvet sac of presents! Both parents and children will come away from this experience with magical Christmas memories to last a lifetime.
