Adventurous Couples + Elopements

intimate beach ceremony pictou Nova Scotia



Hello! I’m Nia - your couples + intimate wedding photographer, based in Pictou, Nova Scotia. I grew up by the sea with a love for the woods and the waves. I love listening to stories and capturing intentional moments.

As your photographer, I am here to help create a meaningful experience that keeps your love as the focus. If you invite me into your sweet journey, I will document your story in the most authentic way I can while giving you space for intimacy and joy.

The most important thing during this process is YOU. How you feel during our time together is equally as important as receiving beautiful images. I’m here for the sweet lovers who want to experience a non traditional wedding. For those of you who rather have their love as the focus than all the extra fluff.

I believe your session/wedding day should be tailored to who you are and what you value most, and to celebrate in a way that reflects that. My style isn't for stiff posing and cheesy smiles, but rather documenting your day in a way that truly reflects who you are.

My approach is different than other photographers. I prefer to observe and photograph moments that are intentional rather than just because. Throughout your day, I will give direction when needed in the most subtle ways while keeping your love as the focus.

The morning of your wedding, you wake up in a rustic cabin overlooking the ocean.

As you sit down to read your favourite book, the quietness of sunrise hour allows you to prepare your heart and mind for the day ahead.

You grab your hot cocoa and join your friends on the beach for breakfast/brunch.

Afterwards, you take a drive, hike to a waterfall or explore a new place.

During sunset, you head to the beach to say your vows, followed by a celebration of good food, meaningful conversation, bonfires and guitar jams.

You say your goodbyes and head back to your cosy cabin, as husband and wife.

We live in a world that is constantly robbing us of genuine connection (now more than ever). There are so many pressures and expectations for things to look a certain way, it can replace the intimacy and purpose of marriage.

Planning an intimate wedding allows you to slow down and enter into a place of rest. It's possible to have a relaxed and stress free wedding day, honouring the people you love and choosing what is meaningful to the both of you. After all, your wedding day should be a reflection of who you are, celebrating the commitment and joy of becoming one, in a place you love.

From morning, noon to night, how would you spend your day together? what would you do? what activities brings out your personalities and are significant to your story? because it doesn't have to look like a typical cookie cutter timeline, you can spend your wedding day however you like.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's your approach?
My approach is a documentary style, observing and admiring your story. I won't pose you but I will give direction when needed in the most natural and simplistic way. I'll ask you questions to get to know you, and capture moments that bring out your personalities and allow you to be fully present.

Do you help in the wedding planning process?
Absolutely! I am here to help you in any way I can and will provide you with resources and guides to help prepare you for your day.

Yes! Most of my inspiration comes from travel and therefore, happy to shoot where you are. Based in Pictou, N.S. Travel fees may apply.

What is your turnaround time?
For weddings, you can expect a turn around time of from 6-8 weeks. For sessions, you can expect your photos to be delivered within 2 weeks.

How many images can we expect?
Because no two weddings are the same, I don't put a set number on images. I believe in quality over quantity. Trust me, you will have plenty of photos that give the storyline of your day and then some!

Do you give raw files?
No, I do not. This is because it's not a true representation of my work. Be sure to take a look at my style to make sure we are a good fit.

I feel awkward in front of the camera - help!
Don't worry! Most of my couples that say this, you would never know by their photos. I will give you direction when needed so that you are comfortable and confident with my camera.

What is the booking process?
For weddings, I require $500 deposit along with a signed contract. These two must be received in order to secure your date. The remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding date. For all other sessions, $100 deposit is required along with a signed contract.

When all you wanted to do was marry the cute boy you wrote about in your journal - the one who made you smile. It didn’t matter to you which centrepieces were in style or the colour of napkins. All that mattered, was to marry your person and to celebrate with those close to your heart.
