Hi there! I’m Cristi MacBurnie, the owner of C. MacBurnie Photography. I was born and raised in Orillia, the greatest small town in the world but have lived in Toronto and Muskoka as well! I most frequently photograph all over Muskoka, Barrie, and Toronto – however my business has me traveling all over Ontario!
My soon-to-be husband Dan and I live in our dream home on the river just south of Muskoka with our spunky awesome cockapoo puppy Eli! Dan accompanies me as a second shooter upon request and we love meeting and working with amazing couples and capturing those special moments!! When he isn’t behind the camera Dan is fighting fires on the departments of Brampton and Gravenhurst.
He’s really good at sneaking those candid photos when you aren’t looking!
I have always had a passion for photography and have been shooting professionally since I was seventeen. I started my business in 2009, over ten years ago (crazy!), and have since achieved my dream of becoming a fulltime photographer and business owner. I am outgoing and friendly and I strive to make every photoshoot and wedding I capture to be an enjoyable and comfortable experience, even for the most camera-shy clients! Sometimes I’m asked what my “specialty” would be, and I would have to say also capturing those candid moments when my clients are unaware of the camera and being themselves — these often become the favourite photos. OH and definitely those sunset photos!!
As for credentials I have a diploma in Digital Photography & Imaging and have been published in numerous newspapers and wedding magazines, including Simcoe County’s very own Wedding Trends. I specialize in weddings but I photograph anything from portraiture to editorial to events so if you have an inquiry please shoot me an email and we can chat!!
Thank you for stopping by my website! I hope you like what you see. Feel free to email me any questions, inquiries, or just to chat!
