Peters / Fortune Wedding

Filed in Couple | Wedding Leave a comment

One of Ryan and I’s favourite things to do is to travel, even if it is only to one of our sister provinces that neither of us had set foot on in a very long time.  Ocean and Joel (who Ryan and I met when we photographed their friends wedding in Jamaica) asked us if we would be interested in heading up to PEI for a weekend to photograph their own wedding. Of course we couldn’t refuse, as not only would they make a stunning bride and groom, but we would be reunited with our Jamaican wedding party crew (many who stood in both weddings)

The wedding was stunning and everyone looked so amazing. We had so much fun spending the day with so many awesome people who had so many memories and stories with each other. We were welcomed in to the fun all three days there were events at Ocean’s father’s beautiful property! Not to mention all of the Harley enthusiasts in her family who also had their own stories to share!

After a beautiful waterfront ceremony, we all headed to the party bus and went on our photo adventure which lead us to some old stomping grounds for some of the wedding party. It seemed like everywhere we turned some hilarious moment was going on between friends all around us. It was back to the tent for the reception and after party to which we couldn’t help but stay and enjoy. Seldom do we have the energy after a long day of photographing, but the party raged on all the way back to our cottages for early morning pizzas and beer.

Thank you so much Ocean and Joel, as well as your lovely families for having us to your wedding. We really had an amazing time celebrating with you, and capturing your special moments from the day.

Twohig / Tempelaars Wedding

There was a running theme this wedding season, of working with wedding party members that we had the chance to work with on previous weddings! Bride Paula had seen us photographing a wedding last fall and contacted us to meet up for a consult. Tagging along was one of the bridesmaids from that very wedding, who would then become the Maid of Honor. It’s so great to see and work with people again at other weddings!

Paula and Kevin had such a beautiful wedding day, not too hot, with the sun shining! And like their engagement photos, we headed down to Point Pleasant Park to hang out with the iconic Anchor that rests by the water. We even made a pit stop to see Kevin’s ship that was in port.

We had an amazing time capturing your wedding day! Thank you so much for having us! Congrats Paula and Kevin!

The first wedding of the year is always exciting for Ryan and I. We come into the new wedding season with another year under our belts, ideas to try out, and skills learned from our wonderful previous clients. Having a photographer also as your bride ups the ante, but it also is humbling that they found someone they were pleased enough with to photograph their own wedding.

With only having done the engagement photos a mere 4 days before the wedding, Katie and Brandon had some fresh practice in front of the camera before the big day! They had been planning the wedding in their home province from Ontario so time was short but we got it done in time!

With one of the hottest days of the summer on us, and our A/C failing in our poor car, it made for some interesting travels between locations with ice packs being passed around! Thankfully, the Dingle Tower was open and we were able to go inside the stone structure and cool down before headed to the party. I have been fortunate enough to photograph inside the tower once before, on one of my very first weddings. It’s so nice to head back to these locations and revisit them with new skills and outlooks.

Congrats Katie and Brandon! Thank you so much for having us on your wedding day!

Shannon and Brandon’s wedding was one of those events that photographers dream to do. The overall feeling of happiness and excitement was felt throughout the entire day. These weddings leave a photographer with so many powerful images it is hard to narrow down your favourites.

One of the highlights for us was the opportunity to photograph the wedding parties at Citadel Hill. This star fortress in the centre of our city is beautiful in so many ways. Finding treasures like the school house, and the munitions room were especially memorable as they lead to some fun and unique photos.

The fleet club has been a regular wedding venue for us, but we never get tired of how lovely it makes our wedding receptions look. Although the Navy them runs strong, a few Disney characters made their way in to wish the happy couple a very special congratulations!

 

Huge congrats to you both, Shannon and Brandon, from the both of us! We had an amazing time capturing your special day!

Justin and Ravit Wedding

Justin is probably one of my oldest and dearest friends. He was also the one who was responsible for introducing Ryan and I many years ago. It seems that they two are also very old friends!

As sad as it was to see Justin move to Montreal, it gave us an excuse to visit one of our favorite cities more often, and also gave him the opportunity to meet, and fall in love with Ravit. Rav is so sweet and so awesome and these two couldn’t be a happier or amazing couple. We fell in love with her right away and knew she was perfect for our friend. After a few trips up for concerts and touristy things, Ryan and I headed back up in March 2014 (oh yea, so they were all born in March, Justin and Rav on the same day!) to witness their wedding!

I had brought my camera along just for fun, and was so happy that we had a chance to take some photos of the happy couple a few hours before they formally tied the knot! Rav knew of this really cool graffiti corner that worked so well! I was thrilled to have been able to capture these images for them!

Huge congrats to you both! Love you guys, and our next visit won’t be so far away! <3


Gould / Steele Wedding

With spending a large portion of our summers at weddings, it’s not surprising that now and again, we have to play double duty as photographers as well  party members. Ryan and Carrie had been friends since grade school, spending nearly every class together, and grew up on the same street in a small town in Cape Breton. He was very honoured to stand in for one of his oldest friends wedding.

Going home to Cape Breton is always a treat and it always has beautiful backdrops to shoot. It was extra special as they were married at the same place that Ryan and I were in 2009, and did all the images in their home town. You develop new appreciation for the scenery when you live so far away from it.

Congrats Carrie and John! Thanks for having us there for your special day!

Weddings are emotional experiences for all those involved, in many different ways. Not often do moments happen that I find myself unable to hold back tears. Carrie’s father who had been very ill, (Rip Harv) managed to spend most of the day AWOL to attend his daughters wedding. When it came time for his dance with his last daughter to be married, everyone stood up and circled around them for the remainder of the dance. It was just one of those silent understandings that was truly beautiful to behold, and even more rewarding to have captured in time.

As many of us know, the weather in here in Nova Scotia is infamous for throwing 180 curve balls at us. Caitlin and Kyle’s wedding happend to fall on one of those oh so hot and humid days, that we couldn’t find enough fans in the house to help keep the sweating down.

Thankfully, the ceremony sitting off a beautiful lake gave us a welcome break after a torturous afternoon under hot rollers, and curling irons. We even had big sister Erin on towel duty for poor Caitlin 😉

As much as I love working in new environments, going back to where you shot the engagement photos on the wedding day always excites me. I love seeing the evolution of images from the casual, excited couple, often having photos taken together for the first time, to when they’re all done up and starting their life together. There’s a whole new energy that shines through.

Thank you so much Caitlin and Kyle for letting us capture your day! We had so much fun <3

Also! I received this snapshot of some of our images on display in their home! It’s always so touching to see our work on our clients walls!

Lindsay and Dale’s wedding day finally arrived! The day was so clear and bright, it was smiles all around the early call time to the salon. Our bridesmaids (and bridesman!) got pampered to look their best before the ceremony began.

When Ryan and I finally got to take everyone aside, we headed down to the stunning Flemming Park, home of the Dingle Tower for some group shots. This was the first wedding that Ryan had his own camera, and was off doing his own thing with the guys, and I had a change to spend more time with the bridal party.

When we got Lindsay and Dale all to ourselves, we headed off to York Redoubt, running into a fellow bride and things got a little hostile. Just kidding! But made for some fun images. Another day that the light from the sun just worked in my favor. We had one final stop to the reception at the stunning Saraguay House to wine n dine the night away! They even had a instant printing photo booth that even us photographers had to play with!

Congrats guys! Thanks for allowing us to share your special day!

At one point earlier in the day Dale picked up my second camera and captured a rather, acrobatic, moment of Ryan and I shooting. The downside of being a short photographer craving higher angles 😀

Fitzpatrick / Fiander Wedding (Destination Wedding)

Kristen and I have been friends for many years. But even still I was honoured to be asked to stand for her when we was to marry Jason. They had been talking for many years and finally tied the knot! This was the first destination wedding I was planning to photograph, but with MOH duties I handed the job to my husband, and assistant, Ryan. Ryan was up for the challenge and managed to photograph a majority of this wedding. (so proud of him!)

The location was beautiful, and with my first destination wedding, it had to rain on the day of! Never fear for it was only a brief shower this time! We had lots of time to wander the resort and capture some amazing images before a delicious dinner, and then a hilarious night out at the Disco!

Kristen, thank you for being an amazing friend, and equally amazing bride! I love you so much, and wish the world for you and Jason in your many years together!
