Specializing in a documentary style of coverage, Evan McMaster is a wedding photographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He captures the day as it unfolds and freezes both small and large moments with the help of his camera. He believes that photography is a powerful medium by which a single memory is captured and can lead to a chain of memories and respective emotions. He derives great pleasure in stepping forward and arresting all the special moments, from beginning to end. Photojournalistic and portraiture style images are also captured by him.
Evan's journey in the world of photography began when he was given a Pentax Spotmatic by his father. Although he couldn’t understand the textbook definition of photography, he kept on exploring and loved every bit of it. He was initially fascinated by architecture and landscape work. However, when asked to document a friend’s wedding, he agreed and has since never looked back.
Evan provides unlimited coverage for events so that he can click every aspect of the wedding. Clients are provided with copyright to all the images. Couples are also provided with a complimentary photo session before the wedding which helps them to get comfortable in front of the camera. A wide range of options are included in his wedding photography package. He is also open to create packages for smaller weddings. He covers one event per day and also offers the following services:
How he works
Images are shot digitally in RAW format. They are then edited and converted to JPEG files. Evan stores a second set of images on disk for archiving and gets permission of clients for promotional use of select images. Evan also likes to shoot images in film and uses ranges from 6x7 and 645 medium format to 35mm black and white. He saves all the edited images in both colour and black and white format; he also saves them in both high and low resolutions.
Photo booth services are provided by the business where guests can click unlimited pictures. Open sessions are offered for family, newborn, commercial, and engagement photography where there is no time limit. A package is also provided for these sessions.

An amazing experience! Evan is truly talented!
We chose our wedding date around Evan’s availability. We were never set on a date but we were definitely set on a photographer. Evan is a childhood friend and although we hadn’t seen each other in 15 years I was able to follow his work online. We knew we just had to have him be a part of our special day. We reached out and were beyond thrilled and excited when he agreed to travel home to Ontario to document our marriage. With Evan we knew we would be in good hands. He is truly talented and his story telling style of photography is amazing! He is easy going, full of energy and has a way of making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. From the events leading up to our wedding to the final dance move, he went above and beyond to capture every special moment. He far exceeded our expectations. He has a well trained eye for capturing the emotion in the candid moments, often without anyone knowing he’s there. These special memories have become some of our favourite photos and we will cherish them for years to come. We are beyond grateful to Evan for the memories he has gifted us. We have received countless compliments from our guests and everyone who has seen our photos. He is a master of his craft and his work speaks for itself. We cannot recommend Evan enough! Anyone looking for an outstanding photographer would be lucky to have such a talented, thoughtful and genuine person behind the camera. Thank you Evan for spending the time with us and making our day perfect!Sent on 05/11/2019

Absolutely recommend Evan McMaster Photography!
Evan is an incredible photographer, and also a delightful person to have at your wedding! His fun, easygoing personality put us at ease in front of the camera, and we were so impressed with how the photos turned out.Sent on 08/08/2019
Evan really went above and beyond our expectations of a wedding photographer- he was keen to start taking photos early morning on the wedding day, and he stayed late, getting some amazing shots of our dance party well past midnight. He even visited our venue the day before our wedding, to take more photos in advance of the big day! It is so refreshing to see someone so passionate about their work, and Evan brings an amazing energy and enthusiasm to the entire day. We cannot recommend Evan highly enough as a wedding photographer- anyone would be lucky to have such a talented and thoughtful person behind the camera to document their special day!
