Smith / Wheeler Wedding

Filed in Couple | Wedding Leave a comment

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!


Abbey and Johnathan Engagement Session

Filed in Couple | Engagement Leave a comment

Christmas doesn’t just come once a year for couple Abbey and Johnathan. As owner and operator of a Christmas tree lot he spends 365 days a year thinking about the holidays! This summer though, Johnathan has one more day to celebrate, his wedding to Abbey.

I’ve known Abbey since she was a baby, our parents were members of the same vintage car club. Being able to be a further part of a wedding for someone you’ve known for so long is a real joy for me. You get a real sense of comfort working with people you are familiar with. Ryan and I headed out to visit them at their home in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and check out a field of baby Christmas trees that is growing in their backyard. We also took advantage of the beautiful country landscapes during the late evening.

Looking forward to the wedding day!


Paula and Kevin Engagement

Filed in Couple | Engagement Leave a comment

Sometimes, you really do get rained out. Our original date to shoot Paula and Kevin falls upon some pretty heavy rains that no amount, of cute rubber boots or umbrellas, is gonna make it any fun. So we take the chance of it the following weekend. With the call of rain most of the week, poor Paula was doing her daily sun-dances that the sky stayed dry! I guess it worked as we had a lovely afternoon round 2.

Looking forward to the wedding guys!


Carrie Maternity

I was overjoyed to hear the news that my good friends Carrie and Mike were expecting a sibling for Dali. She came over one evening just as the sun was going down for some baby bump photos!

Our summer evenings have been so nice this year. Feels really good to take advantage of them in photos!

Looking forward to meeting the little one Carrie! Love you guys!


Canine Photo Day 2014

Filed in Creatives | Portrait Leave a comment

With the amazing success that we had with hosting Canine Photo Day last summer, it was no question we opened to the idea of hosting it again the following spring. With some samples from the year before, and the word getting around we had more room this year for pups portraits. There was also a nice mix of breeds big and small who came for picture day!

All of the proceeds raised from Canine Photo Day is in support of  Greyhound Pets Atlantic Canada


Jenna in the Townhouse

Just as summer was starting to roll around, the lovely Jenna and I finally had a chance to work together. We were also lucky to have been able to shoot in this beautiful townhouse thanks to my friend Ocean!

Jenna is one of those models that I have seen up and coming in the local scene, so I was really excited when we were able to finally meet up and pump out this creative session. I’ve missed shooting in natural light so having so many big windows to my disposable I was overjoyed with the end results.


Katie and Brandon Engagement

As this former Nova Scotian couple Katie and Brandon remember, our unpredictable weather can take us from seasons to the next instantly. With hardly a spring to be had we had been hit with a hot and humid summer that has been long awaited!

The breezes were fortunately a welcome relief after a hearty walk through Point Pleasant Park. Even after a few locations being tied up, and a few wrong turns, we came out of the day with some really amazing photos! With planning your wedding when living provinces away, sometimes you just gotta “get er done” with only 4 days away from the big day!

Look forward to shooting your wedding in beautiful Historic Halifax!

Had the opportunity to work with the stunning Aleshia St Cyr a little while back for a test shoot. Having seen her on IG for a little while, I was anxious to finally get together with her. She was so lovely to work with and I very much look forward to doing so again soon! Thanks to Sarah for the make-up!

Also! A couple of these images were just seeing in Missy/Ink Magazine, Special Edition Vol. 13 Available on Magcloud


Ocean and Joel Engagement

We met Ocean and Joel on one of our destination weddings in sunny Jamaica. We instantly hit it off, and I was so thrilled when they asked us to shoot their upcoming wedding in September. With Joel working out of town often, we lucked out and snagged him for a photo shoot on the boardwalk where he and Ocean first were engaged.

People who live in this city all hold the downtown boardwalk close to their hearts from memories as kids, as couples on first dates, or as tourists in our own home. Ryan and myself were also engaged while aboard the HMS Bounty when she was docked here for Tall Ships. There is always something new to see, or old ones to play those nostalgic heartstrings that make Halifax home.

We’re very excited to shoot this wedding!


McLeod / Carrigan Wedding

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!
