    Friendly, down to earth, and reasonable.
    Not only did McMillan Photography work with our budget to help us get everything we could but the husband and wife team were people we were pleased to have at our wedding.

    Thank you so much for the kind words Aly! I loved working with both of you and wish you so much happiness. I know it wasn't Vegas but your family property was really special and beautiful. Keep in touch :)

    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!

    McMillan Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Sally for the kind words!! It was great to meet you and Josh and I wish you two all the best. Keep in touch!!

    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!

    McMillan Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Rachel! Your wedding was beautiful, the Scottish elements were thoughtful and it was such a joy to capture the day for you and Andrew. I enjoyed getting to know you both and I found myself smiling behind my cameral often as I witnessed your love for each other. I wish you both the very best. Keep in touch :)

    Ryan was professional and easy to work with.
    He was great with our family, very flexible and friendly. He captured so many wonderful moments. Great value as well.
    We are very happy with our photos, highly recommend.

    McMillan Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Maria and James. Even with a little bit of rain your joy in the moment and love for each other won the day. I had so much fun covering your wedding and found myself smiling as I watched you two interact. It was an honour to be present, I wish you both (and your family) all the best. Keep in touch :)

    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.

    McMillan Photography's reply:

    Hi Anna and Devin,
    Thank you so much for the kind words! I know it was hard/heartbreaking to plan a wedding and then re-plan again during covid, but you did such an amazing job. We were all in it together and I was just so happy to be there for you both and see it come together. I wish you both a lifetime and more of happiness together. Keep in touch :)

Meet the Team

Ryan McMillan
Ryan McMillan
Owner/Photographer

My name is Ryan McMillan and I am a professional photographer based in the Calgary area. Born and raised in Calgary I love the mountains, the Calgary Flames and mini doughnuts at the Calgary Stampede. I love hanging out with my family, going on mini adventures and taking pictures of my 5 children and the places we end up. Did I mention coffee, catching the first sight of hot air balloons in late summer, Christmas (Like the whole shebang) and coffee? I have lived here my whole life and I am still discovering new things that I love about Calgary.

Photography has been a part of my life for a long time and is something that I have found immense joy in. I believe that creating art is a process of exploring my passions, staying curious in the moment, and pursuing beauty everyday; sometimes I pursue this with a couple on their wedding day, or with a family and sometimes when I鈥檓 alone. Pursuing photography, for me anyways, is a never ending pursuit of beauty, learning and applying my skills in new ways and new settings. I have also taken the time to be formally trained in my photography as well. My training has been split between photography courses through SAIT and being mentored by Sean Leblanc of Sean Leblanc Photography.

I love working with people and capturing the moments that help tell their stories. These stories are unique and they matter! Whether this is your story of starting a new life together or as a growing family it needs to be captured. Whether we are in an urban setting, a park close by or having a mini adventure in the Rockies I love capturing the moments that matter to people.

My style is one that is dominated by a love of colour (though black/white stills are needed at times), a love of nature and a love for people being themselves. My goal in each photography session is to coach/guide where it is needed, laugh alongside my clients and capture the candid moments along the way.

Travel is not an issue for me; I am comfortable working wherever you are. Capturing moments that matter is what I love to do; let's tell your story!
