Sarah and Eddie - Nova Scotia engagement photography

Before our January heat wave hit and took away the snow I was able to get together with Sarah and Eddie to do a snowy engagement session. It can be hard to schedule outdoor session in winter, especially when there is travel involved, but it worked out for our first try. They were able to make the drive down from Halifax and we went to the beautiful trail at the Hebron Recreation Complex. Winter engagement sessions are great because they provide a nice contrast to summer wedding photos. Sarah and Eddie are such a sweet couple and I'm really looking forward to their wedding this year (And I guaranteed them that there won't be snow here in Yarmouth for their September wedding).

Heidi and Brandon - Yarmouth engagement photography

When Heidi booked this engagement session for the end of March, I was hoping we might get a nice, warm Spring day. Maybe even the first signs of green on the trees. Instead, we had to postpone a day because of a snowstorm and ended up with this snowy wintery feel to the pictures. I wasn't disappointed though because I knew beforehand that Heidi likes snow pictures. When we started the session, it quickly became clear that the weather wouldn't have mattered a bit. Even in a hurricane, these two would be happy to be together, getting more and more excited for their upcoming wedding. They made it fun to be trudging through the fresh snow at the end of March. I'm really looking forward to their wedding in August (and I can guarantee no snow). You can check out their slideshow here! [blogshow id=46c4 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=0]

Kaitlynn and Phil

When we met for a wedding consultation, Kaitlynn let me know they were looking for something a little bit different for their engagement session. They wanted to do their pictures in the winter snow. Snow can be hit or miss here in Yarmouth some winters. Thankfully the deep freeze this year worked in our favour and we got a great day last weekend. It was a lot of fun. You'd have to be trying pretty hard though to not have fun with Kaitlynn and Phil. I'm really looking forward to their wedding. [blogshow id=46b6 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=0]

Melissa and Joel - Saint John Engagement Photography

This is one more engagement session from my trip to Saint John. When Melissa and I were first e-mailing back and forth about their wedding photography she asked if it would be okay if the engagement session included some pictures of them canoeing on Lily Lake in Rockwood Park. I replied something along the lines of, 'That would be great!' Immediately, I had this weird mix of looking forward to a really unique session and horrible visions of pulling a wet, angry couple out of the lake after they capsized (probably while doing something I had asked them to do for a better picture). Turns out I didn't need to be worried, even though these beautiful old Chestnuts aren't the most stable canoes, Joel could probably paddle through a hurricane. And they didn't even flinch as I asked them to go around, and around, and around to take more pictures. We finished up with some pictures in the nearby Public Gardens where we had a bit more of a chance to chat. They're a lovely couple and I'm really looking forward to their wedding, whether or not it involves a canoe. [blogshow id=4581 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=1]

Shannon and Jon Engagement - Yarmouth wedding photography

Shannon and Jon's wedding is coming up this weekend. We squeezed a last minute engagement session in on Saturday. These were at Sealed Landers Park  (named after one of Sherrie's ancestors and an early settler of Yarmouth) and despite the typical Yarmouth fog blowing in from the harbour it was a lot of fun. See you two on Saturday! [blogshow id=4575 player=0 autoplay=0 toolbar=1]
