Before I tell you about myself and my work I'd like to thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in the people behind TAB Media. I'm Ariel, the owner of TAB Media and I specialize in commercial photography and digital design. Photography became a love of mine when I was a teenager and the love never faded. After years of working in the trades, coupling my appreciation for construction with my aptitude for photography seemed to happen organically. I came to the realization this was the job I was meant to do! Being able to showcase the creativity, ingenuity and hard work that goes into constructing spaces & objects fuels my artistic desires.
Having experienced the introduction of computers to the world I spent a lot of time learning what they could do when I was young. Designing websites and creating web graphics has always been something I thoroughly enjoy doing. Over the years I have designed a multitude of websites, logos, ads, and more while following the industry trends.
My husband and I have been together for 15 years and we have a rescue dog named Bane that we adopted from Texas. We run another business together, Adept Landscape Group Ltd. doing landscape construction. When I'm not busy bouncing between businesses and taking care of the dog, you can find me gardening, tending to our chickens, or spending time with friends & family.
We at TAB Media look forward to the opportunity to work with people within the community as well as abroad. We love working with other small businesses and believe in strong relationships & mutual growth!
I am a portrait photographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia who is completely in love with capturing real & authentic images of people. I am a mom of the sweetest little girl in the world named Ella (who I photograph every chance I get!), a wife to a man that never stops making me laugh, and a dog-mom to the snuggliest little miniature dachshund. To me, family means absolutely everything, and I feel that having photographs of your family that you can cherish for the rest of your life is incredibly important. My goal is to capture images that you will be proud to show your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren, your aunts & uncles, your neighbours, and whoever else, and will be honoured to say “this is us”.
I’m not just a “sit & smile” photographer; I will find the light, get you moving & laughing, and play around with different poses and prompts to make you feel like yourselves. I will chase toddlers that would rather go on an adventure than sit and snuggle, I will make jokes with a reluctant teen, and I will do everything that I can to make an expectant mama feel incredibly beautiful.
We are a wedding photography team based in Nova Scotia who are both incredibly passionate about photography. We have known each other for the better part of a decade and we have been learning & growing as photographers together almost the entire time. We started shooting weddings together in 2019 and quickly found that Alyssa’s passion for portraits & Ariel’s delicate design eye blended together to make the perfect team for wedding photography. It didn’t take long for both of us to realize that we are obsessed with weddings & telling the stories of two people in love. We enjoy working with couples who are fun, light hearted, up for anything, and, most of all, wildly in love!
We absolutely adore working together as a team to document every single part of a wedding day. Together, we specialize in capturing all of the real, raw moments that happen during a wedding, as well as all of the magical details that you have worked so hard in putting together for your special day. We understand that for most people, this is a once in a lifetime event and we want to create images that you will be able to look back on for the rest of your life and remember the day exactly as it was.
