COME AS YOU ARE,

MY HEART IS TO SERVE YOU

Hello! I’m Nia - your couples + elopement photographer, based in 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.

I am already so grateful you are considering me to be your photographer. This pricing guide should answer any questions you may have about pricing and the process, and all the in between details.

Lets dive in.

MY APPROACH, AND HEART

FOR A NONTRADITIONAL EXPERIENCE

The most important thing during this process is you. How you feel during our time together is equally as important as receiving beautiful image.

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. I don't care for stiff posing and cheesy smiles, but I will document your day in a way that is true to you.

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.

LEAN INTO YOUR HEART
& IMAGINE YOUR DAY

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 with your love and best 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 back to the beach to say your vows, followed by a celebration of good food, donuts, meaningful conversation, bonfires and guitar jams.

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

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.

Do you travel for sessions?
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 4-6 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?
I require $500 deposit along with a signed contract. These two must be received in order to secure your date. For weddings, the remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding date.
