As a wedding photographer, the moments immediately following a ceremony are some of my favourites. That mix of excitement and adoration. A sense of welcoming. A flurry of handshakes and hugs, kisses and warm embraces. Navigating those moments and documenting the interactions that follow is a true pleasure.Read More
A drone's view of Val-Comeau Beach in the early hours of the morning. I've driven through Tracadie-Sheila before (most recently for a wedding in Inkerman) but had never stopped to explore the surroundings. This past weekend I found myself in the community for a wedding and ending up falling in love with the coastline. So quiet. So peaceful. So lush and so green.
At the moment I'm working on obtaining an SFOC (special-flight-operations-certificate) for engagement / wedding work. Once in my hands I'll be able to start mixing clients in with these aerial views - I look forward to sharing different perspectives and exploring Maritime locales from the air. Until then I'll still bring my drone on wedding road trips - with any luck I'll have favourable flying weather the morning after each wedding. Its addictive. Its fun.Read More
It's the end of June and I haven't blogged in ages - so many photos to post, so many stories to share. A huge thank-you to those who have already allowed me to tag along with them this year - this Haligonian is already 8 weddings in with many more to go.
Although there are a few Halifax based weddings this season I'll find myself spending most of my time outside of HRM. And I'm ok with that. I'm ecstatic. One happy wedding photographer.
Tracadie-Sheila tomorrow, Liverpool next week and Indian Harbour the week after. Onwards and upwards - lets go exploring. Lets capture some memories.
For the third year in a row I've had the pleasure of documenting the collaborative work of Halifax wedding vendors at the Bespoke Wedding Event, organized and hosted by Simply Weddings. Vendors come together to transform select spaces into themed rooms, offering the public an opportunity to view the end result and chat with those involved. The gallery above is just a sample of what guests were able to explore on the 9th of April - visit Bespoke's Facebook page *here* for additional galleries and information. For a relatively small city, Halifax is blessed with a strong number of talented wedding photographers. [continued ...]Read More
Keeping things simple. Keeping things fun. This is the prime example of what can unfold over the course of a low key wedding day. This is a reminder that there are no rules and that a wedding can be what you want it to be (outside of some key questions and a signature or two). Spin class with your guests in the morning? Why not! Wedding ceremony on a rooftop? Why not! Reception at a cozy restaurant in the core of the peninsula? Why not! Sweat, tears, socializing and cheers. As a wedding photographer, this is why I do what I do. [continued ...Read More
