Hi! I’m Cassidy Nunn, a wedding, equestrian & portrait photographer living the island life just outside of Victoria, BC.
I’m a farm/country girl at heart, an animal lover and passionate photographer.
I was gifted my first film camera at the age of ten and my love of photography has only grown through the years of developing my own film and prints in the darkroom to using digital cameras and learning the complexities of Photoshop.
BEHIND THE LENS
A connection to photography runs in my family—my Opa passed it along to my mum, who in turn handed it to me. My Mum always took the time to point out poignant details throughout my childhood and this, paired with my background in photojournalism, has helped train my eye to constantly look for beautiful light and meaningful moments.
I’ve been horse crazy since the age of three and I’ve worked hard to keep horses a part of my life. Zappa, my sweet grey Thoroughbred, will be with me forever. He enjoys cross country jumping, rolling in the mud and long naps in the sun.
A good cup of coffee with a side of dark chocolate and puppy snuggles make my mornings complete. My devoted black lab Karma used to work as a bear dog at a fishing resort; she once chased a bear back past the guests (whoops! No one, the bear included, was harmed in the making of this story). She now enjoys the retired life and never lets me forget to take a break from editing for dinner time. Kieffer, my rescue dog from Belize, has abnormally large ears and a personality to match. He’s six years old and is still regularly mistaken for a puppy on account of his bounciness and extreme excitability.
I have the most supportive partner in life, Bryan, who never complains when I ask him to pull the car over because the light is just right and I need to jump out and snap a quick photo.
Continuing my photography education is very important to me; I attend conferences and workshops whenever possible and at the moment I’m learning to shoot video.
I strongly believe in printing your photos – whether that’s hanging them proudly throughout your home, preserving them in a beautiful album or, if you’re like me, allowing them to take over your fridge in a collage of memories.
This is my favourite photo in my house—it’s of my Opa and Oma in the late 1940s taken by my great Uncle Franz. This represents so much to me: legacy, family, love, romance, and most importantly connection, to my Oma who I never met, to a moment in a different time and place that will now live on forever. That is the beauty of photography.
If my work speaks to you, I hope you’ll reach out. I can’t wait to tell your story through powerful images that will last a lifetime.
Although I’m Victoria based, I love to travel and I’ve photographed weddings and other events in Maui, Mexico, Whistler, Calgary and beyond. Please don’t hesitate to inquire if your wedding is outside of the Victoria area—I’d love to be considered!
