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 wedding 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.


  Myself and Allie just had our first child on November 27th, 2017  (Owen, 9lbs+ !!!); and because of this, there will be some changes will be happening at Zach Wheeler Photography. For 2018 and beyond, I will, for the most part, only be focusing on small-ish (100 guests or less) weddings in St. John’s. I’ve also switched up my wedding packages; they’re simpler and more straightforward. By default, they include everything you need and nothing you don’t. I’ve always designed my stuff based on what I’d want if I was looking for a photographer.

Where are you based?

St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada



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 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.
