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.
