Zach Wheeler // Photographer

Hi! I am a Newfoundland based wedding and landscape photographer located in North America’s oldest city, St. John’s. When I’m not training for the Tely 10 or doing one of the endless renos on my home (it never ends!), you can find me with a camera in my hand; either photographing the rugged Atlantic coastline or documenting once-in-a-lifetime events.

My work has been featured in marketing brochures for Raymonds, Merchant Tavern and the Yellow Bely, landscape artwork in the House of Commons, and websites such as Looks Like Film, The Knot and Junebug Weddings.

Allie has been assisting me with weddings and engagements since 2012. We‘re expecting our first child in November 2017 had our first child on November 27th, 2017  (Owen, 9lbs+ !!!); and because of this, some changes will be happening at Zach Wheeler Photography. We don’t really know how it’s all going to shake out in 2018 but we know for certain we’ll be scaling back our bookings and only taking on small-ish weddings.

Allie will most likely not be assisting me with engagements and weddings in 2018. I will, however, have an assistant with me for a portion of the wedding day to help with lighting, family formals, posing, etc. There’s no additional cost to clients for this. I’m also offering two different second shooter options “at cost” for couples who want a second shooter for their day. But for smaller weddings, a second shooter isn’t always necessary.

I have exciting changes planned for 2018 and I can’t wait to share the results from the wedding workshops I’m taking in over the winter.



Where are you based?

St. John’s, Newfoundland and available for work province-wide.

What’s your style?

I believe that the best way to gauge my photography style is through the consistent images I produce and not just with a “best of” gallery. You can find examples of my wedding and portrait work on my blog (www.zachwheeler.ca/featured-work/)

Will you post my images online?

Yes!! I love posting on our Facebook page, Instagram and website. I love sharing the work I create for clients. And it’s one way that helps us grow this business.

What type of equipment do you use?

I use Sony and Canon professional series camera bodies, lenses and flashes. I also carry light stands, additional batteries and memory cards, a tripod, light modifiers, white balance cards, wireless flash remotes, etc. and use these as needed throughout the day.
