An evening stroll along the sands and bluffs of Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia. When wind, sun, tides and love come together in the most perfect of ways.Read More
Locate Nova Scotia’s Fundy Shore on a satellite photo. Then shift your focus slightly to the south until you find the community of Annapolis Royal. Now follow the Annapolis River to the east as it winds through Moschelle, Granville Centre, Roundhill, Belleisle, Upper Granville, Bridgetown, Paradise . . .
With each bend, with each meander there appears an increase in the amount of farm land along either bank. The patchwork of fields, orchards and pastures intensifies as you reach Kentville, New Minas, Wolfville and the roots of the Cornwallis River before reaching a peak as you reach the shores of the Minas Basin. Every shade of green imaginable, with a dash of red soil for character. Nestled within that crescendo, alongside the old highway is Lightfoot & Wolfville. Another shade of green from the air, but so much more once you’re on the ground.Read More
It poured on the way to Wolfville. Dark clouds raced across the sky and sheets of rain pelted the ground below. The tents were leaking, water collecting in their light fixtures. Pools formed in low spots on the driveway. Then the lawn. Yet everyone forged ahead. Kegs were lifted out of the cellar and taps were assembled. Floral arrangements completed and napkins set. Clothing pressed and guests dressed. Then the skies started to clear - brief glimpses of blue between bouts of thunder and lighting. Drenched willows started to shine like chandeliers as the sun pierced through the gloom. And then the storm was gone. Replaced by cool, fresh air and the crisp scents that follow. Replaced by excitement. A first look at the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens, followed by an intimate ceremony in a stand of trees just outside of Wolfville. Portraits by White Rock Pond (where the line between sky and water blurred so beautifully) and a reception outside of Gaspereau that featured local brew and an incredible spread by Asado Wood Fired Grill. Friends and family by the bus load (literally) led to an endless amount of cheer throughout the course of the evening. Toasts transitioned into musical tributes, complete with the groom’s rendition of ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ by Wheatus. Just for his wife. It was amazing. Thank you Emily & Skye - a true pleasure to have photographed your wedding day. Your celebration.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.
