Hi! I’m Nia - an Intimate Wedding and Elopement Photographer, documenting love and adventure in Pictou, Nova Scotia and beyond.

My work is inspired by the sea, earth tones, intimate spaces and film. I take a very natural documentary style approach to photography with a focus on genuine connection. Invite me into your sweet journey and I will document your story in the most authentic way I can while keeping your love as the focus.



I take a very natural and documentary-style approach to photography, focusing on genuine connection. I won’t force you into awkward poses, but I will give direction when needed in the most simplistic way. I’m here for the adventurous couples who want to break traditions and avoid cookie-cutter timelines, explore the off-beaten path or say vows in an intimate place. My heart is for you to have photos that reflect who you are, and your story.

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. With all the pressures and expectations for things to look a certain way, it can shift our focus from love to all the other stuff.

Do you remember the time when all you wanted to do was marry the cute boy you wrote about in your journal - the one who made you smile?

You may not realize it at the moment, but the wedding photographs will be the most cherished memory you will have from your special day. It will not be the style of centrepieces, the cake you eat, or the colour of florals, but rather the photographs - capturing all the details of your love.

Intimate weddings and elopements hold a special place in my heart. They allow people to connect on a much deeper level and celebrate the commitment and joy of becoming one. Having an intimate gathering while keeping your love as the focus allows you to tailor your day to who you are and what you value most. From sunrise to sunset, how would you choose to spend your day?




A non-refundable deposit of $500 and $100 for sessions, along with a signed contract to secure your booking. is required for weddings.


I will provide you with guides, questionnaires, and helpful tips to help you prepare for your wedding or session day.


I will come alongside you and document all the intentional moments as well as the in-between details.


Your photos will be delivered in an online gallery to download, share and print. Weddings can be expected 6-8 weeks and sessions 2 weeks.


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, I'm happy to shoot where you are. Based in Pictou, Nova Scotia. Travel fees may apply.

What is your turnaround time?
For weddings, you can expect to receive your online gallery 6-8 weeks from your day. 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.

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 guide you when needed so that you are comfortable and confident with my camera.

What is the booking process?
To secure your booking, I require a $500 non-refundable deposit along with a signed contract. Both of these must be completed in order to secure your date. The remaining balance for weddings is due 14 days before your date. For all other sessions, a $100 non-refundable deposit is required with a signed contract.



As a photographer and a friend, I am here to help you throughout this entire process. I will be there to capture all the in-between details that tell your story in the most authentic way. By building a comfortable and trusting relationship, I can ensure your photos bring out the best in you and reflect your relationship.

However, I understand that I may not be the best fit for every couple. I pour my heart and soul into my work, and it's very important that we are the right match for each other. If you are seeking a photographer who values your memories and cherishes them as much as you do, then I believe we will be good friends.

Let's begin this sweet journey!

” Nia! You have created magic and we are so grateful for your compositional eye and gift of photography! We are in love with each photo. Every moment captured brought back waves of joyful tears and such fond memories. These are such special and treasured frames – love the colours, textures and the composition of every photo. Thank you!”
