Maggie Hood
Jon Brown

 A wedding and portrait photographer based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. She fell in love with photography while in grad school, started her own business and hasn’t looked back since. Never taking anything too seriously, she is inspired by real moments and emotions, but also the process of creating an image from start to finish. Alongside shooting, she also enjoys teaching and is a regular contributor for Offbeat Photo.
Raised in Northern Cape Breton, discovered his passion for photography/image making in his mid-20’s. After traversing through family and wedding photography, he felt something was missing. Always drawn to emotionally charged conceptual images, nature and exploring; he decided to try and fuse them in a way that captivated the viewers. Utilizing his camera as more of an extension of himself; it is what he uses to capture the essence of a scene in front of him
