Well, my sister finally got married.  She and Matt had a very hot day but for the most part, Friday the 13th went off without a hitch.  People frequently asked me what it was like to shoot my own sisters wedding.  Was I emotional?  Nervous?  Too busy to enjoy myself?  Well, I'll tell you this;  I am so glad it was me shooting my little sister on her biggest day.  I was very nervous but only 2 minutes before she came down the isle.  My stomach was in knots.  To date, this was the most important wedding I'd shot and I knew I'd have difficult conditions (during that 31 degree heat wave with the wedding under the sun) and had to turn out gold. 

I haven't yet gone though all of Nat's pics but here was a few that I grabbed from the bunch.  It was a wonderful ceremony by the garden at my parents' property and then off to Hatfield Farm for the reception.

Next wedding for me will actually be my brothers wedding this Friday.  John and Aimee get married.  Holy frig.

Over the winter I was approached by Kate Hayter of Kate Hayter Photographics and she asked me to photograph her wedding.  Kate is a wonderful Halifax wedding photographer and has been shooting weddings for 10 years so when she asked me to shoot her big day I was honoured, excited and a little nervous.  It was really important to me that Kate would be, along with every other bride, thrilled at the end of their day that they chose me.  Not only are we friends but she knows great photography - so I had to be on top of my game.  It's not often a wedding photographer shoots another wedding photographers' wedding.  It was great being a part of Kate & Chris' big day (over at the Saraguay Club) and it was wonderful seeing them have so much fun.

I'm very happy to hear that they are glad they picked me.

Over the last few months, I have come to realize that destination wedding photography has the potential to be a large part of my business.  Sometimes when people get married away, they just want someone they can trust to take great images and capture, not just the important moments...but many of the other, overlooked moments.  I have already shot weddings in Cuba and Happy Valley-Goose Bay (yes, that is a destination) and over the next 10 months, I'll be in Punta Cana and Vegas, baby.

Today, I had the honour of being featured in a well read Destination Wedding Blog named 'Destination Inspirations'.  It is run by a real nice gal named Jessica McCann who has a love for everything destination and I'm thrilled to have made it to her site.  Thanks Jess, for finding me and including my work to your wonderful blog.

Earlier this month, Dolcetto Designs, a talented Canadian custom photo card and invitation company put on a contest asking people to show off their favourite engagement shot.  One of my past wedding clients won with a wonderful photo which was shot at Crystal Crescent Beach one morning a few summers ago.  This was right after we all got rocked by a truly rogue wave.  You may recognize Jo from my Facebook Fan Page, my business cards and various other photo shoots over the last couple of years.  She 's doing great with her new business, If It Glitters and I look forward to photographing them again.

Haley Shandro: Wow, HOT! I love this one on 08.19.10

Well that was fun.  This was my first destination wedding and I'm so thrilled it all went to well.  The families were fun, the bride and groom were up for anything (and we took off the next day for a fun shoot in town and in the water) and the day went off without a hitch.  It was so nice, the entire group was there for nearly a week before the wedding even took place - it was like a vacation for everyone more than a wedding....and that made for a real nice wedding.

I took tonnes of photos on wedding day - here are a few.

After the wedding, the three of us headed into a beautifully rustic Cuban colonial town named Remedios.  We met so many wonderful people and got to see a lot of authentic Cuba.  We also got many wonderful images.  Then we came back to the beach and, this time, didn't worry about getting the dress wet.  This wedding shoot ended up in the pool - a great way to wind up a great day, week and wedding.

This weekend I finally shot Jillian & Stephen's wedding.  With all the photography planning and meetings with the bride's parents, Pam and Grant, I was really anxious to finally get them in front of my camera.  Jillian is a helicopter pilot and Stephen flys F-18's...so obviously they're pretty cool.  Here is one quick shot from downtown Halifax - more photos to come!

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to meet the Turbitt family again as I helped plan Lindsay's wedding (Sarah's Sister) five years ago while at Inn on the Lake.  It was great seeing everyone again and it was a lot of fun being involved in Sarah & Chad's big day.  I've just started editing their wedding photos but here are a few that caught my eye as they were being backed up.

About two months ago I created a Facebook Page to compliment this website and to have a presence on one of the largest social sites on the web. Within a month I was closing in on 500 'Fans' and had booked a number of weddings and family portraits though it so I decided to show my appreciation by offering a free shot to one of those fans. Congratulations to Lisa Kehler for winning that first gift certificate. When I hit 1000 Facebook Fans, I'll draw for this one.

As many of you know (especially if you read my bio), I worked for years at Inn on the Lake, a beautiful hotel just outside Halifax, NS.  I coordinated all the weddings during most of my stay there but once I left, it was a thrill to photograph weddings there as I was so familiar with the property and it's really a beautiful spot.  I'm currently gathering a bunch of my Inn on the Lake wedding photos for their booth for the two Wedding Shows in Halifax - and I figured I would post a few here.
