Hey there! If you're reading this for the first time, welcome! I'm so glad to have you here. I've always had a natural inclination to the arts - drawing, painting, as well as photography. If you've made it to this page, it's because you really want to get to know me. So I'll be real. I've got my BSc in Nursing from Dalhousie, and as much as Nursing would have been an awesome path for my future - it just really wasn't for me. I'm  a passionate and avid traveller, and my love for the arts runs deep. You'll notice from the "travel" section of my website that during the off-season, I spend my time travelling all over the world (If you're thinking of eloping in Europe - I'm your girl). I also spend a lot of time at home reading. I read a lot. Like, a book a week.. sometimes two.  I spend a lot of time at home with my husband, Jeremiah, my two Chihuahua's (Norman and Winston) my horse (Walter), and my absolutely beautiful 7 year old son, Lucas. 


I'm a laid-back person. Very calm and relaxed, and there's honestly not much that can get me riled up. I'm also bilingual in French and English! I was born in Quebec, so French is my first language. My family moved to Nova Scotia when I was just about to enter Jr. High School. Since then, my parents have moved back to Quebec, but I've made myself at home here and have no plans on leaving Nova Scotia - ever. It is my home.

As for photography, I am all about capturing those everyday moments. I'm not about the awkward and stiff poses. I want to show the real and raw moments - the simple gestures of love. The happy tear moments. The passionate kisses. Laughing your heads off moments. Even the messy moments that don't go as planned. If you're looking for all of that in your session or your wedding, I can guarantee you we will have a great time.

Hope to hear from you soon!



Marie is the absolute best! If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would! She goes above & beyond for her clients, she even flew from Halifax to Ottawa for our engagement session!


She's warm and comforting and kept me sane on my wedding day! On top of what a wonderful person she is, she is so talented. Our pictures were absolutely stunning and they were exactly what we had hoped for and then some. She had our preview ready the NEXT MORNING after our wedding and mailed our whole set in less than a month! I would recommend her a million times to every person

Marie went beyond to accommodate my vision for our photos!!  Our entire experience was effortless! She was able to capture exactly what we had imagined going into our session and so much more!

I would definitely recommend Marie and
already excited to work with her again!!

Having Marie as our wedding photographer was the absolute best decision that we made in our planning journey. She not only takes amazing pictures but she's someone I will now call a friend.

Within 10 minutes of knowing Marie, I felt like I had known her for years. She is so familiar, and personal! She had a preview ready within 12 hours of the big day, and she never missed a beat!This woman knows her stuff. Beyond amazing Marie! Thank you for everything!
