Sydney, Nova Scotia
Greg and Christina Alexander had to be one of my favorite couples of this wedding season. They were both so excited and easy going it made my job a breeze.
They, and when I say they I mean it in the sense that ‘they’ we’re truly a unified couple, so much support, love and respect between them, there was no question they were meant to be.
Surrounded by their loved ones they were wed at St. Theresa’s church in Ashby, the very same church Christina’s parents were married some 20 odd years ago. It was a dreamy affair, full of beautiful mauves and words of thanks and joy surrounding them in a traditional catholic ceremony.
We set off to Peters Field for their formal photos with the wedding party, their families, and a private session for the newly weds.
The dinner and reception was full of laughs. Christina told the crowd she had to put on her ‘big girl panties’ to get the nerve up to do her speech. The crowd roared with laughter and Christina was absolutely charming with her beaming groom at her side.
Thank you both for inviting me to share your day. It was truly my pleasure.
Today…oh god…2 weddings in a row. And Killed it! Going to sleep forever now.
…and my legs are jelly and my feet are throbbing
This past spring my cousin Jenika came down for a visit, home from her first year in university. She always liked coming along with me to photo shoot or what not when she came to visit so I thought we’d commemorate the occasion with a fun spring shoot in the woods. She was more than happy to oblidge.
I had this idea of a woodland nymph styled shoot for a while. We played around with this foolish head piece I made and she had a great dress to suit the theme.
Check em out :)
Keri and Marty are one of my wedding couples for this year, and I have to say, I’m super excited about their big day this October. They have planned for a country romance themed wedding here in Cape Breton, pair that with their outgoing personalities and good humour, it’s sure to be a good time!
I mean seriously, how can these two not be fun?
We met up in Louisbourg a few month’s back for their engagement session, and despite the fog and looming drizzle, it was really romantic.
We started out in the heart of the small fishing village by shooting at the dock and the remains of the old train route, known to many of the locals as the Fisherman’s Chapel, which I thought was fitting.
Then proceeded to the boardwalk for some lovey dovey shots on the dock.
Then we took a stroll at the lighthouse trail.
