life is too short to only experience once

If you're like me, you’re the sentimental type and a sucker for a good love story. Words like natural, authentic, and romantic come to mind when you think of how you want your wedding day to be
remembered. You want to have stunning portraits, but at the same time, be able to relive your day through actual real life moments of you and your guests celebrating. My highest priority is that your day is captured thoughtfully and intentionally, in a way that reflects your unique story. And that its done in a fashion that has you relaxed, present, and enjoying all that unfolds around you.

For the last almost two decades, I have had the honour of photographing weddings across the United States and Canada. I love to travel and it’s actually how I got started. I spent months exploring Southeast Asia, which led me to attend one of the top art schools and gave me the opportunity to study under some of North America’s best still-life and fashion photographers and art directors. I took that commercial training and the editorial eye I developed, and segued into documenting weddings because I find it to be far more fulfilling and meaningful.

While technically my name is William, you can call me Reid—that’s how I’m known amongst my friends and family.

My wife Emily and I have two children: Paige and Wyatt. My world became brighter when they entered it. I began to see how miraculous and precious life truly was. I found myself longing to live in the present more than ever before, yet realizing how difficult it was. Every moment felt like it came and went without fully taking it all in. I desperately wanted to remember how each moment felt, and I knew my own memory would fail me. Creating images to capture life as we live it enables us all to relive those moments and reflect on the times we’ve shared.

And that’s at the core of how I approach every wedding.

I have had the pleasure of many publications around the world featuring my photographs, including VOGUE, BRIDES UK, BRIDES, Over the Moon, Martha Stewart Weddings, Wedding Sparrow, Style Me Pretty, Carats & Cake, WedLuxe, and Magnolia Rouge. I was also given the honour of being recognized on BRIDES UK’s list of top wedding photographers in the world.

Since our first consultation call with Reid, I knew there was no other option for who we wanted to capture our love story. He showed up with the upmost professionalism throughout the entire weekend. Reid made us feel comfortable while also always prioritizing our time with our family and friends - which was important as we were never pulled away from quality moments. I constantly had friends and family coming up to me throughout the weekend complimenting how amazing Reid and the team were. Not to mention the quality of his content is unmatchable! I could not recommend Reid and his team anymore!!

AMAZING! Our favorite vendor from the wedding. Reid does an amazing job, listens to what you want, and directs everyone to make photos go seamlessly and quickly! I also really wanted a lot of candid photos with some editorial and he absolutely delivered. A JOY to work with! I would recommend hiring him for your wedding 100%! Thank you Reid!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Reid as the photographer for our welcome party and wedding one month ago. Best decision we ever made! Right from the get go, Reid made us feel incredibly comfortable. I can't say enough about how professional Reid is, and the quality of work he provides. He is truly a talent in his field, and has an amazing eye. Thank you so much!

Reid and Team were the most professional photographers I we have ever worked with. They shot our daughter's wedding last weekend and we threw many challenges at them - antique boat ride's, 3 little ring bearers and a flower girl, an island only accessible by ferry, horsedrawn carriages, mulitple locations, and I could go on!!! Oh, not to mention extreme heat!!! Never once did I hear or see a sign of frustration with Reid or his team. Instead, they were just very patient and encouraging for the entire bridal crew! This guy is the real deal!! We can hardly wait to see the photos! Thank you Reid for all you artistic flare, eye for a perfect shot and FUN!
