Kandise and Andre by Ryan MacDonald

I wasn’t always a photographer. My first career began in a dusty Halifax archive, where I worked with old photographs, describing and preserving them for future generations. Fate intervened and 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’ll do my best to make your experience with me an easy, honest, wonderful one.

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

I’m also a: nerd. beer enthusiast. crossword puzzler. homebody. knitter. ravenclaw. mama. All-time favourite TV includes Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, Battlestar Galactica, Parks & Recreation, and Game of Thrones. I have insatiable wanderlust – 13 countries so far! I love: cheese. music. kayaking. turquoise eyeshadow. pub trivia. the blue jays. board games. hot yoga. lens flares. road trips. tulips. fleetwood mac. libraries. long walks by the river. dance parties. good food. adventures. photography.

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