Quinn is amazing, 10/10 recommend


Quinn is the kind of photographer everyone wishes they had on their big day. He's empathetic, he listens, and he's a lot of fun. Not to mention that he's flexible and open to trying something different. Lucas and I received the most beautiful wedding photos from Quinn, and we couldn't be happier with his work. His photography is phenomenal, and the memories he captured will live on our walls for years to come. Thank you so much for being an incredible artist and human, Quinn. It's such a pleasure to know you.

He was extremely flexible, communication was very smooth and he always has the best attitude and is so easy to talk to! He has incredible knowledge, experience and passion for his work and it shows through each and every photo! We could not be happier with our experience working with him! Thank you so much, Quinn!!!

Awesome experience!


We had a slightly different wedding than normal, having a small family ceremony at our house and Quinn was incredible throughout the entire process! We have never had professional pictures taken before so he was amazing at telling us where we need to be and what looks good which is exactly what we needed. We so, so appreciated his professionalism and expertise and are so excited for our pictures!

Everything we could have asked for!


Quinn is an amazing photographer! All of the pricing and packages that he offers are very reasonably priced, and he is very flexible in making them suit your needs. He also has an additional photographer that works with him, and we were so lucky to also have her with us for part of the day. It was such a pleasure dealing with him, he is very personable and easy to talk to. Throughout the whole day he barely stopped moving, and was always in the best of spirits. I trust that he captured every moment beautifully. The day after, Quinn sent us a "sneak peek" of some photos. My husband and I are beyond in love with them! If this is how stunning the sneak peek is, we can not wait to see the rest! Would highly recommend Quinn!!

We loved our experience with Quinn!


Quinn has been very flexible during COVID, we didn’t have any issues modifying the contract because we had to cancel the reception. My husband and I can tell that he absolutely loves what he does and his pictures are stunning!! If we could give him more stars we definitely would (5/5 stars)

Picture perfect


What an amazing experience we had from start to finish with Quinn Hystad! Not only is he an amazing photographer but also an amazing human being who truly cares that your special day is perfect! We couldn’t ask for better pictures to have captured our incredible day! Thank you Quinn for going above and beyond!

Calm, Cool, Collected


Quinn was relaxed, meticulous and gave perfect direction! All of my guests were calm and relaxed with him around and commented on how amazing it was that he just blended into the background instead of being in peoples faces the whole day. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!

Amazing photographer!


Quinn was amazing for both of our wedding days (due to COVID). He was very professional and made our wedding so special. I was very impressed with the photos that we got, as well as the highlight video he did. It was almost like having a photographer and videographer in one. He was very prompt with answering any questions that we had, and was always kind. Highly recommend Quinn for photos!

Quinn and Eric were amazing to work with!


They both worked so hard all day to capture all our amazing moments of our special day with our friends and families. Through everything that has been happening with Covid, Quinn was so helpful and understanding with all of the changes we had to make. We received are sneak peeks the next day and are anxiously awaiting the rest, the few shots we got were amazing! I highly recommend hiring Quinn for your photography needs, you won’t be disappointed!

Super-positive experience


Working with Quinn was one of the smoothest parts of the whole wedding planning process. He was responsive, accommodating, and most importantly, took some fantastic shots we will treasure forever. He's also a super-nice guy who works around you, rather than the other way around. Quinn's prices were completely customizable, and excellent value. Would definitely recommend.

Even better than I ever hoped for!


We met with quite a few photographers before reaching our decision to go with Quinn and I am so glad that we did. Our decision was based on not only what a really nice guy he is, how easy he was to talk to, and how comfortable he made us feel; but also his incredible technical knowledge ( my husband is a bit of a geek and once they started talking specifics we were pretty convinced he would do the best job), his vast experience, and his passion for his work. I am a proud budget bride and I was honestly a little concerned that we might not end up with many great pictures as we didn't spend much money on things like my dress, getting make up done professionally, or renting a hotel room. Our venue was a community hall just outside of Cochrane and we were really looking forward to the incredible view of the mountains but it was a grey cloudy day with no visibility at all. I cannot express enough how incredibly beautiful our pictures turned out! It has taken us forever to pick which ones to display because they are all so good! They caught amazing candid shots us of all our guests. There were really unique and pretty shots of the venue, decor, and outside including a lightning storm! We had a big black-light dance party at the end of the night and we now have phenomenal pictures of everyone dancing and having a good time, as well as our friends and the groom DJing. Every single picture was clear, focused, and well done. Quinn and Eric made us look so good from getting ready in my messy bedroom and the groom in a camping trailer, making the bubbles at our outdoor ceremony look like absolute magic, taking both funny and romantic pictures, working with the day and setting, and capturing all sorts of different lighting and lightning. There was not a moment I can think of that we do not have a picture of. They were patient, kind, and courteous and I am so grateful to have had the privilege of having them with us on our big day. Thank you Quinn and Eric for helping us create and capture so many beautiful memories!

Fun and easy to work with


Captured candid moments. High quality photos. I booked Quinn for 7 hours of coverage on my wedding day, from the end of getting ready, to the ceremony, and the reception. Unlike most couple who would do an engagement shoot prior to the wedding with their photographer, we had none due to my husband working out of town most of the time. I was a bit nervous about the wedding day shoots since we'd be working with Quinn the very first time. However, Quinn made us feel comfortable right away so we could just have fun and be ourselves! We had our outdoor ceremony at Baker park, and we got rained on for part of the shoots there, and had to change shooting locations. Quinn did an excellent job scouting locations for a rainy day shooting. His professionalism and creativity really shone through. Quinn also captured many candid and authentic moments with our guests. Scrolling through the photos is like living the day again! We can't wait for our canvas print to arrive :)

Wonderful guy and wonderful pictures


We had a backyard wedding that was very casual and Quinn did a wonderful job getting beautiful pictures of everyone throughout the day. The print we received afterwards is great quality as well as the USB with all of our photos. We opted with his smallest package for 4 hours and that was perfect for us. The amount of great photos we got in that time really speaks to his dedication and talent.

Wedding Photography Nov 2015


Quinn shot our wedding in Banff, AB in November 2015 and we couldn't have asked for better photos for our wedding day! Quinn was professional, timely, and kept our entire wedding party on track on the day of. We would HIGHLY recommend Quinn!

Wonderful photographer, and great person!


Quinn did a fantastic job of our wedding photography, and of capturing the goofiness and fun we had! He was very responsive whenever we contacted him, and had all our photos ready to go in a very timely manner! I can’t recommend him enough!

-Katie A.


Creative and Dependable!


Quinn took the time to listen to what we wanted and used his creativity to surpass the photos we had imagined. His professional and easy going demeanour put us at ease and we even had a few laughs along the way. Would definitely recommend!

Professional and Skilled


My husband and I were very happy with the service and results we received from Quinn Hystad Photography. He was very professional and showed good experience with the technical aspects of photographing our wedding. The finished product was a fine selection of beautiful photos with strong editing. We would recommend Quinn, and even had him take some family photos for us more recently.

Amazing Photographer


Quinn is a great photographer. We used him back in 2012 for our wedding, where he captured every key moment of our special day. Before we chose him we spoke with many other photographers. We selected him because of his friendly demenor, professionalism, and flexibility in meeting all of our needs. On the day, he worked tirelessly from the pre-ceremony preparations to the reception. He came up with just the right amount of creative and elegant staged photos, without taking away form the flow of our day. But where he really shined was in his ability to be a constant fly-on-the-wall, capturing all those special and candid moments. Before his time was up, he asked us if there were any other photos we wanted before he took off - I really liked that about him. We were just as pleased with Quinn after we got our pictures back. They were delivered to us in a timely manner and of the highest quality, professionally and creatively edited. We definitely plan on using him in the future to do some family photos for us.
