Behind the Lens
My name is Cassidy Nunn and I’ve been snapping photos for over fifteen years, from developing rolls of film in a darkroom to embracing the tools technology has offered the world of photography. I graduated from high school with honours in photography and continued to take photography courses while finishing my degree in writing and photojournalism at the University of Victoria. Ever since I was very young, I’ve considered myself a story teller at heart. My camera is the tool I use to tell people’s stories–whether it’s of their love or the love of a family, the story of new life and friendship, or the story of a beloved pet.
I’m a people and an animal person and I specialize in photographing both subjects. From creative family portraits, to photographing the best in equestrian sports, to capturing all the special moments and details of a wedding day, I’m passionate about my work and I strive to bring my positive energy and enthusiasm to each photo session. I always aim to make my subjects feel at ease in front of the camera— some find it intimidating to be in front of the lens, but with my sessions, it’s all about being comfortable and enjoying the experience while creating some amazing images at the same time!
I feel so blessed to be able to call Vancouver Island home—I’ve done a lot of travelling and this is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love to be outdoors and to use nature as a backdrop—whether it’s a farm, the ocean, the woods or a grassy hill in a park.
