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.

Services offered

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:

  • Digital files
  • Negatives
  • High-resolution images
  • Multiple location shoots

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.

Other services

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.

Amazing Photographer!

We highly recommend Evan for multiple reasons. For people who aren’t used to having their pictures taken we were put right at ease. Both of our experiences (wedding and engagement photoshoot) were natural, easy and relaxed. We can even say that we barely noticed he was there taking pictures, but yet, he managed to capture all of the joy and love shared during our wedding day. His level of professionalism is unmatched. He is super flexible and easy to work with, making the whole experience very much enjoyable. Friends and family alike had nothing but good things to say and were very impressed by the way he goes about his business. Even now, months after the wedding we are stilling hearing echoes from people who attended the wedding about his professionalism. We have already recommended Evan to some people and will continue to do so.

Wish we had a second wedding to hire Evan again!

I cannot express enough how great it was to work with Evan for our wedding. Kind, down-to-earth, easy-going, and the results were amazing.

My wife and I traveled from BC to Nova Scotia for our wedding and it was held in Shelburne, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Halifax. We found Evan's website and liked how he captured candid moments. We were more interested in having Evan capture the day, rather than focus on portraits. He helped us find the perfect balance between the two.

In terms of business, Evan was by far the best value and flexible in terms of the contract. We also found his fees for traveling the most affordable. He was easy to communicate with (essentially all by email given the time-difference prior to our arrival), and always responded promptly.

He arrived on the day on time and prepared. He was both present when he needed to be, and gave us some direction, but he also just melded into the background during the day's events. Our day had a loose itinerary, but no strict structure, and Evan was happy to just go with the flow. Evan also agreed to stay a bit longer than we had originally planned in order to capture a few more shots in the evening. Not only that, but he unpacked his camera after he had put everything away and was ready to go to capture a few final shots of a special moment - unprompted, he just saw it and shot it!

And the results - we couldn't be more pleased. The photos are better than we imagined and full of candid moments. They are well composed and perfectly edited. It rained on our wedding day and he was able to edit some of the wet/dirty bits from the base of the wedding dress from the photos. A few of our guests ended up having to isolate from the rest of the group, but Evan was able to take a couple photographs and stitch them together. The end result is a photo that looks like the whole wedding party is together!

In summary, we cannot recommend Evan enough and do not have any critical comments to provide. He was a pleasure to work with and hope he's able to make others as happy as he made us.

Best Wedding Photographer

Evan worked with us to photograph our wedding through the COVID19 Pandemic. He was responsive and flexible through rescheduling our wedding date multiple times. Once we finally got to the big day, Evan was there as long as we needed and truly captured all the emotions of our wedding. He is easy to work with, great to have around, and produces amazing photographs that you will cherish forever!

Could not be happier

It's been absolutely lovely working with Evan. From the beginning, he has been professional, easy to communicate with, coming up with great ideas. Having Evan as our wedding photographer felt so seamless, he was truly part of the crew and captured the best candid moments. My husband I would give him 10 out of 5 stars if possible!

Captured our day perfectly!

Evan came highly revered from loved ones and choosing Evan as our photographer was the easiest and best decision for our wedding day. Evan is not only incredibly talented and super down-to-earth, but he is a true professional and makes sure to capture the little things you had no idea would be so important for remembering your special day fully.

We absolutely adore our wedding photos and could not be more pleased with how they all turned out. We will definitely be reaching back out to Evan for future gigs!

Highly recommend!

Evan was the perfect photographer for us. Amid the chaos of planning a wedding during a pandemic, every interaction we had with Evan was both pleasant and professional. From having to postpone our wedding to canceling our venue two weeks before the set date and getting married on a beach, with the fog and waves as a backdrop, Evan adapted easily with every change in plan, big and small. His calm, confident demeanor reassured us that we had made the right decision when choosing a photographer to document the start of our adventure. Not only did the pictures Evan took chronicle the events of our wedding but they also perfectly captured the energy and feelings of the day. Evan has a remarkable ability to seamlessly position himself to take the perfect photo without you even knowing he is there. We could not be happier with our wedding photos and the overall experience of having Evan as our photographer. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Thank you, Evan, for giving us incredible keepsakes of our wedding day!
