Kate’s stunning photographs have brought joy to hundreds of brides and grooms and have earned her countless referrals. Her meticulous yet laid-back style has secured her a spot as one of the most well-liked wedding photographers in Halifax.

Thanks to Tanya’s relaxed yet no-nonsense approach to her craft, even the most camera-shy couples are able to channel their inner supermodel. Her clients are happy to report that they are still swooning over their wedding photos many years after they were taken.

Jill Roberts Photography

Weddings are, first and foremost, a celebration of love, of romance. It is the wedding photographer’s responsibility to produce an evocative visual recollection of this loving essence without being over-the-top mushy.

This is paramount in the mind of Jill Roberts who specializes in romantic wedding photography. With her subjects perpetually bathed in flattering soft light, there is a dreamy, almost ethereal quality to Jill’s snaps.

Chelle Wooten Photography

Chelle has loved documenting everything since age 5 when her grandmother got her a Kodak 110 film camera. These days, she documents weddings with her assistant/husband, Adam, and their second shooter, Cherakee.

With a “soft spot for low-key weddings” and the couple’s favorite animals as props, she’d want nothing more than for the couple and their wedding guests to be as comfortable as possible. She has a special knack for charming even the most socially timid subjects to drop their guard down and enjoy the moment.

Dave Reyno Photography

Award-winning photographer Dave and his wife, Pam, are the quirky couple behind this company. Dave has been photographing weddings since 2002 and remains among the most sought-after wedding photographers in Halifax for reasonably priced packages.

Dave and Pam forego the latest photography fads in favor of images that have a timeless appeal. They tackle portraits with the usual zest, but it’s the little moments in your wedding that this couple live for.

MaddenVallis Photography

Another husband-and-wife team on this list is Matt and Kim of MaddenVallis Photography. The couple describes their approach to wedding photography as modern and authentic, a perfect marriage between romanticism and realism.

Light, airy and pristine characterize the couple’s shooting style. Their goal is to capture all the genuine interactions from your celebration and produce images that can stand the test of time.

Shaeline Faith Photography

What Shaeline loves about weddings is that it incorporates all the three elements that she treasures the most: family, photography and storytelling. For her, it’s a privilege that she, essentially an outsider, is given access to the couple’s inner world to capture deep connections and beautiful moments as they happen.

Shaeline documents the couple’s lifelong memories in clean, evocative compositions with plenty of natural light. Her main goal is for her clients to enjoy the process and look good while doing it.

Ming’s Photography

For Ming, the best way to do photographic justice to something as dramatic and life-changing as a wedding is through subtlety. The less distracting elements that could potentially steal the thunder from his subjects, the better.

Ming’s minimalist approach to wedding photography makes use of light and neutral colors, with faint, sometimes non-existent shadows. This results in wedding images that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also timeless.
