Wonderful experience!

I loved McMillan Photography's work!! He was able to capture what that day
meant to me in each photo with creativity and style. He has the gift and
you will feel like family by the end!
Even with the wedding being planned in 4 months, McMillan Photographer met
the demands and rose to the occasion. Ryan was flexible and professional.
You wouldn't regret booking him to take photos of your special day. It was
the best experience!

Fantastic, Easy Going

We hired Ryan for our wedding this past May and he was absolutely amazing! He was so easy going and a dream to work with. He was very knowledgeable on good places to go for photos, was able to have fun with us, and made the day run very smoothly. We had a traditional Scottish wedding and Ryan was able to immortalize all of those traditions in our photos. We loved working with him and would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Amazing professional photographer!!!

Highly recommend Ryan for his services! Our pictures turned out AMAZING, he captured all of the important moments from our wedding. We get tons of compliments from our wedding pictures on how beautiful they are from family and friends. Ryan was extremely accommodating given that we had to plan our wedding 3 times due to COVID-19. He was very understanding and willing to travel 500+ km from our original venue.

Ryan McMillan
Ryan McMillan

My name is Ryan McMillan. I was born and raised in Calgary I love the mountains, hanging out with my family, going on mini adventures and taking pictures of my children. Did I mention my love of coffee, catching the first sight of hot air balloons in late summer, Christmas (Like the whole thing) and coffee?

I have lived here my whole life and I am still discovering new things that I love about Southern Alberta.Photography has been a part of my life for a long time and is something that I find great joy in. I believe that creating art is a process of exploring the authentic connections people share, staying curious in the moment, and pursuing beauty in each setting. I love working with people and capturing the moments that help tell their stories.

My photography style is driven by a love natural, true to life colour. As a trained photojournalist I love capturing genuinely candid moments. However, as an artist, I also can't help but explore the settings I am in to capture authentic artistic compositions.

I love working with my clients to find what matters to them in a way they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Alexis McMillan
Alexis McMillan
Assistant/ Second Shooter

Alexis is an incredibly talented and important part of McMillan Photography. Not only is Alexis my wife, but she is also my second shooter and assistant at weddings. Alexis just knows me and how I work. This means that Alexis anticipates me and moves in coordination with me to get the extra angles where I am not.

I also know Alexis, I trust her completely and there is no one else that I would want with me when photographing a wedding.
