    Awesome experience!

    We had a slightly different wedding than normal, having a small family ceremony at our house and Quinn was incredible throughout the entire process! We have never had professional pictures taken before so he was amazing at telling us where we need to be and what looks good which is exactly what we needed. We so, so appreciated his professionalism and expertise and are so excited for our pictures!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks for the glowing review, Ethan! I'm really glad we had a break in the weather so we could take some photos outside 馃槃 And thanks for being awesome to work with! You guys are great...congrats! 馃帀馃拲

    September 4, 2021 Wedding

    Quinn was awesome to work with! He was very responsive and punctual. Our photos are absolutely stunning and we are so happy with them, he captured the entire day for us and we will be able to look back at them in awe forever. Would recommend to anyone!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much for the review, Kayla! I'll always remember the bunch of carrots the farmer gave us and how the best man carried them around until they were all eaten! 馃槃 So fun!

    Everything we could have asked for!

    Quinn is an amazing photographer!

    All of the pricing and packages that he offers are very reasonably priced, and he is very flexible in making them suit your needs. He also has an additional photographer that works with him, and we were so lucky to also have her with us for part of the day.
    It was such a pleasure dealing with him, he is very personable and easy to talk to.
    Throughout the whole day he barely stopped moving, and was always in the best of spirits. I trust that he captured every moment beautifully.
    The day after, Quinn sent us a "sneak peek" of some photos. My husband and I are beyond in love with them! If this is how stunning the sneak peek is, we can not wait to see the rest!

    Would highly recommend Quinn!!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks, Amanda...I'm glad you like your sneak peeks! You guys were wonderful to work with 馃榿 I'll let you know when your photo set is ready, cheers!

    Amazing photographer!

    Quinn was amazing for both of our wedding days (due to COVID). He was very professional and made our wedding so special. I was very impressed with the photos that we got, as well as the highlight video he did. It was almost like having a photographer and videographer in one. He was very prompt with answering any questions that we had, and was always kind. Highly recommend Quinn for photos!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much! And thanks for having me as your photographer 馃榾 You guys are great and I wish you all the best in 2022 and beyond!

    Quinn and Eric were amazing to work with! They both worked so hard all day to capture all our amazing moments of our special day with our friends and families. Through everything that has been happening with Covid, Quinn was so helpful and understanding with all of the changes we had to make. We received are sneak peeks the next day and are anxiously awaiting the rest, the few shots we got were amazing! I highly recommend hiring Quinn for your photography needs, you won鈥檛 be disappointed!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much, Alex! I love how you decided to go ahead with your wedding despite the crazy pandemic world we live in. You guys are wonderful - thanks for having me as part of your big day!

    Even better than I ever hoped for!

    We met with quite a few photographers before reaching our decision to go with Quinn and I am so glad that we did. Our decision was based on not only what a really nice guy he is, how easy he was to talk to, and how comfortable he made us feel; but also his incredible technical knowledge ( my husband is a bit of a geek and once they started talking specifics we were pretty convinced he would do the best job), his vast experience, and his passion for his work.
    I am a proud budget bride and I was honestly a little concerned that we might not end up with many great pictures as we didn't spend much money on things like my dress, getting make up done professionally, or renting a hotel room. Our venue was a community hall just outside of Cochrane and we were really looking forward to the incredible view of the mountains but it was a grey cloudy day with no visibility at all. I cannot express enough how incredibly beautiful our pictures turned out! It has taken us forever to pick which ones to display because they are all so good!
    They caught amazing candid shots us of all our guests. There were really unique and pretty shots of the venue, decor, and outside including a lightning storm! We had a big black-light dance party at the end of the night and we now have phenomenal pictures of everyone dancing and having a good time, as well as our friends and the groom DJing. Every single picture was clear, focused, and well done. Quinn and Eric made us look so good from getting ready in my messy bedroom and the groom in a camping trailer, making the bubbles at our outdoor ceremony look like absolute magic, taking both funny and romantic pictures, working with the day and setting, and capturing all sorts of different lighting and lightning. There was not a moment I can think of that we do not have a picture of. They were patient, kind, and courteous and I am so grateful to have had the privilege of having them with us on our big day. Thank you Quinn and Eric for helping us create and capture so many beautiful memories!

    Quinn Hystad Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much for your review, Liz! You guys are amazing and I love how you planned the details of your day to reflect who you are. One of the greatest joys of my job is being able to witness and celebrate the uniqueness of each of my couples. And I'll never forget the lightning storm shots we were able to get at the end of the night! Cheers!

    Fun and easy to work with. Captured candid moments. High quality photos.

    I booked Quinn for 7 hours of coverage on my wedding day, from the end of getting ready, to the ceremony, and the reception. Unlike most couple who would do an engagement shoot prior to the wedding with their photographer, we had none due to my husband working out of town most of the time. I was a bit nervous about the wedding day shoots since we'd be working with Quinn the very first time. However, Quinn made us feel comfortable right away so we could just have fun and be ourselves! We had our outdoor ceremony at Baker park, and we got rained on for part of the shoots there, and had to change shooting locations. Quinn did an excellent job scouting locations for a rainy day shooting. His professionalism and creativity really shone through. Quinn also captured many candid and authentic moments with our guests. Scrolling through the photos is like living the day again! We can't wait for our canvas print to arrive :).

Quinn Hystad
Quinn Hystad
Owner / Primary Photographer

Hi there! My name is Quinn and over the past 13 years, I鈥檝e had the joy and honour of documenting some pretty amazing weddings. I love being able to witness the beauty and emotions of the weddings I shoot, and I feel so privileged to be entrusted with preserving those fleeting moments as they unfold in front of me.

My style of photography leans more toward the photojournalistic side of things, where I like to focus on capturing the story that is happening right before me. That doesn't mean I stand around completely aloof never interacting with anyone, it just means that I prefer to let the day unfold rather than play director. Couples hire me because I am personable, unobtrusive, have an artistic eye, and because I genuinely love what I do!

When I鈥檓 not out shooting or editing, you might find me hanging out with my beautiful family, cycling, playing modern board games, or reading a good fantasy or sci-fi novel. I鈥檝e been known to pick up a guitar every once in a while or compose music on my digital audio workstation. And I've also been known to binge watch Netflix shows with my wife after the kids are in bed :)
