Kandise and Andre by Ryan MacDonald

In 2008 I was fresh out of grad school, and my first job as a newly minted librarian was working in a Halifax archives. I worked with old photographs, describing and preserving them for future generations. Now I make those photographs. It’s funny though, my background in history, sociology, and archives fits perfectly with my life as a photographer. I’m observing and documenting history, traditions, and families. I’m preserving love, laughter, and life.

Maybe that’s sappy, but my style is fun, relaxed, and a little irreverent. I love real moments, and photography with a sense of humour. (I think I’m funny. It will be awkward if you disagree.) I love getting to know you, having a laugh, and taking the kind of photo that makes you say “HOLY SHITBALLS!

I’m a wedding and portrait photographer for awesome people, and I love what I do.

I’m also a geek… or is it a nerd? I’m definitely a Mac. All-time favourite TV includes BtVS, Veronica Mars, and BSG; currently into Game of Thrones and The Good Place. I have insatiable wanderlust – 13 countries so far! I’ve been known to drop the grammar hammer (favourite punctuation: interrobang). My phone is full of photos of my cat and my baby. I love: cheese. music. kayaking. turquoise eyeshadow. pub trivia. knitting. the blue jays. board games. hot yoga. lens flares. tulips. fleetwood mac. libraries. beer. strumming my guitar. postcards. dance parties. good food. adventures. photography.

My amazing husband, André (aka AG) is my sidekick and partner in crime. We’ve shot over 80 weddings together, and we got married in 2014, so I know exactly how wedding planning can be – the good and the bad. I’ll do my best to make your experience with me an easy, honest, wonderful one.

If that sounds good, get in touch ASAP because I think we’re going to click.
