i've been a creative person for basically as long as i can remember! even as an itty bitty girl, you would always find me drawing, painting, dancing (or at least attempting to), singing - you name it, and I was probably creating it!
i got very my first camera when i was in high school. i would spend most of my time doing "fashion shoots" with some of my closest friends and family (you can imagine how GREAT these turned out... ha ha ha...). since then, photography has become a great passion of mine + another outlet for my artistic expression (and i promise i've improved a ton haha).
over the past 3 years, i've been doing photography in a more intentional and serious way - investing time to learn my gear, second shooting with other photographers, and continuously gaining as much knowledge as i can from this beautiful industry - and let me tell you it has been such a blast!
after assisting some seriously talented photographers, as well as getting the chance to shoot a few weddings of my own, i realized that spending my day laughing and having a blast with super fun + in-love couples is something that i absolutely love to do.
oh hi there.
nice to meet you.
i'm aislynn! (you can call me ais)
i'm a young and enthusiastic wedding and lifestyle photographer, born and raised in the beautiful prairies of central Canada.
i love love love dogs (especially my own 2 weirdos!) i live off of caffeine + stay up way too late watching reruns of greys anatomy + new girl (which UNFORTUNATELY is no longer on Netflix - yea, I'm unimpressed as well).
i sing wayyyyy too loudly everywhere i go, and to be completely honest half of the time i won't even realize that i'm doing it (seriously, i'll be audibly singing alicia keys in the middle aisle of a walmart, and won't clue in until multiple people pass by me with concerned looks on their faces...)
i have a passion for all things creative + i'm trying my best to spread Jesus' uber abundant love to every single person i meet.
other useless facts.
+ i have two weirdo dogs and i'm slightly obsessed with them. (and by slightly, i of course mean way beyond the societal norm) their names are oliver (aka ollie) + tucker. my lil' baby ollie is a rescue from a local shelter here in winnipeg (he's not really that little - he's a 70 lbs lab mix); and tucker is a feisty lil american brittany from some random town in saskatchewan.
+ my cupboards are literally overflowing with tins of DAVIDsTEA because i used to be a "tea guide" (seriously, i have over 80 tins and somehow think i need to keep getting all the new flavours... it's becoming an issue). i also used to be a "barista" at starbucks, so i may or may not also have over 10 bags of unused coffee grounds. basically the moral of the story is i know a lot of useless information about the intensive processes of which tea + coffee are made. if you'd like to chat about it any time, i'm your girl.
+ i adore travelling + exploring new cultures! i've travelled to over 13 countries so far, and recently had the opportunity to live in France in the heart of the wine region for 4 months. it was beyond amazing. like seriously. un-freaking-believable.
+ i am always, always, ALWAYS down for a karaoke jam session - anytime, any place! (especially disney classics + broadway musicals - i freaking ROCK those!)
i would absolutely love to work with you to capture your memories. i strongly believe that your wedding photography is one of your biggest investments on your special day + i definitely treat it as such!
i would definitely say that i am a more candid focused portrait photographer. i love finding those genuine moments that happen right in front of your very eyes. i love, love, LOVE shooting outdoors, in natural light exploring nature (now full disclosure i'm not one of those intensely adventurous + outdoorsy people that thrives for intensive week-long hikes + mountain climbing, BUT for you i'd do it!).
you should know right off the hop that i'm not the type of photographer that shows up with the most high-tech gear and fancy equipment - if that's what you're looking for then we may not be the best fit. also, if you're looking for the cheapest deal out there, then you may not find value in what i have to offer. i believe that everyone deserves to work with someone who works with someone who matches their personality and style best!
basically, i don't want to be just your photographer; i want to become your friend and create some beautiful, fun, authentic, real memories with you! i want to be someone that you can be comfortable with and have full confidence in! i am here to serve you the best way that i can + i want you to know that whatever you need to feel comfortable and at ease, i gotchu!
SOOOO if you feel that we're a good match, then shoot me a message and let's do this thang!!!
ps. i know that i should be capitalizing a lot
of things but yenno #doitfortheaesthetic.
