Hi! I'm Magna, the owner and lead photographer of Magna Arnott Photography or MAP for short, because trust me, we'll be going on an adventure together. I've been in business since 2012, and have years of experience in editorial work, weddings, and specialized portraits. My office is located in quaint town of Elmvale, Ontario, but I work primarily in Collingwood, Blue Mountain, and love to travel (especially to mountains)! I'm passionate about connecting with couples who are deeply in love and have a bit of spunk. I believe every couple has a love story worth sharing and I'd be honoured to help tell yours!
- saved by grace
- mountain seeker
- dog lover
- youth pastor
- tea drinker
- dark chocolate lover
- hopeful romantic
It all began with a 6-megapixel Olympus camera (okay, it was definitely my parents' camera), and a love for life's "candid" moments. I took it everywhere, from our backyard flower garden to trips to our small-town Tim Horton's. I loved capturing people in their element, and having the power to freeze a moment in time through the simple click of a button. Over the years, I began to deeply cherish those images, yes even the silly ones at the coffee shop, and I wanted other's to have that same feeling of joy in reminiscing in their most beloved memories. We all long to have life's grandest moments captured, but if you're anything like me, you love the RAW every day moments too. So regardless
of how big or small a moment might be, I promise to
capture sweet ol' grandma doing the chicken dance
with as much passion as your first kiss as Mr. and Mrs. It's been many years, and many, many camera upgrades since that little Olympus camera, but my heart has always remained the same: capture the authentic. I'd love to hear your story, fill out the contact form, and let's chat!
The sweetest lake-side proposal.
The old adage of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue inspired this mix and match wedding editorial.
