I was born and raised in New England, surrounded by and enamored with the color and texture of the region; creamy snow-covered farmland that fades seamlessly into an overcast sky, evergreen trees that grow like stubble on the face of a mountain, grainy sand punctuated by smooth stones buffed for years by waves crashing, and of course, the vibrant kaleidoscope of autumn leaves along with the energy changing seasons bring to the northeast.
My inspiration comes from nature's beauty, and my storytelling is a product of growing up in a large family, surrounded by music, motion, and most importantly, laughter.
I learned photography while studying broadcast journalism at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. The stories that moved me most could be caught in one image - singular moments and gestures that left a mark.
My style is heavily influenced by these moments, whether they capture one day-in-the-life or a once-in-a-lifetime day. I believe that our lives are made up of moments, and when we intentionally slow down to observe them, we give thanks for what we have and celebrate how far we've come. I think that's magic, and I'd love to make magic with you.

Exactly what we hoped our Engagement Session would be!
We cannot thank Rory enough for our Engagement photos!
She made us feel quickly comfortable in the limelight, and surpassed our expectations when it came to the quality and quantity of our photos. She was so easy to contact and coordinate with both ahead of and after the shoot.
We really appreciate that she gave us the "picture perfect poses" along with all of the goofy grins in between. She gave us ideas for poses and let us lead some of the positions, guiding us when she thought something might not work out the way we pictured it. Couldn't recommend her more highly!Sent on 11/10/2020

Communicative, Caring, Good Energy.
It's a pretty sensitive time of your life, when you're trying to immortalize something immense into just a few hours of sunlight. Emotions are running high, and when you feel yourself losing your grip, having good people around you to help you stay strong is important.
Rory was a pillar of support and encouragement from the very beginning, sending us a long sheet explaining how important it is to be comfortable and happy in the photos, not just pretty. I had a lot of worries about my hair and hat, and Rory was very responsive to my anxious texts and patiently reassured me that we would have some good pictures out of the lot. And despite all my conviction that my hair looked awful and my hat stuck up weird, I still look found many keepers and feel torn trying to choose my favorite. Thank you Rory for being there for me through the waiting process and for all your gentle words!Sent on 12/20/2019
Rory McCann Photography's reply:Thank you, Aurora! It was great to work with you and Brian. I appreciate your trust in me, as well as your sense of adventure, both of which made magic in front of the lens. It's an honor to be a part of your love story!

We booked Rory in early 2019 to work our 2021 wedding. She was encouraging, supportive and always available to chat about our uncertain wedding plans after Covid hit. She was flexible with changing our package and pricing, and travelled to capture our small wedding. We were so grateful to have not just a photographer, but a positive influence, to help us on our big day. She was full of useful knowledge about different aspects of wedding day preparations, kept us on schedule, and guided people to achieve the portraits we wanted. We received tons of compliments about how respectful and helpful Rory was. 10/10 would recommend.Sent on 10/17/2020
