Ashley and Dan - Middleton Summer Wedding (Annapolis Valley)

There's nothing quite like a wedding in The Valley.  Ashley and Dan decided to have a quiet and intimate ceremony in Ashley's Parent's backyard in Middleton on a gorgeous summer day last August.  With their family and friends present they declared their love for all to hear and made a lifelong commitment to be together through sickness and health.  Moments like these, (while sometimes challenging as a photographer) are what drive me to keep improving and deliver the absolute best I can for every one of my clients.  

I had a fantastic time getting to know Dan and Ashley over the course of their day and with my partner-in-crime Julia Burke we managed to get some incredible photo opportunities from the preparation for the wedding all the way to an epic sunset on the Fundy coast of Margaretsville.  You'll see for yourself in the photos, there was never a dull moment!

Reception Venue: Beaver Creek Winery

Flowers: Middleton Valley Rose Flower Shop

Chris and Kelsey - Halifax Wedding Photographer

Chris and Kelsey's wedding was an absolutely gorgeous affair in the beautiful countryside outside Fredericton, NB.   Sean went with the boys, I went with the girls, as per our usual arrangement.  Kelsey and I hit it off while we chatted in the salon, talking about careers, life, and of course, their upcoming honeymoon to Greece.  Sean took some photos of the guys playing guitar in the bathtub, while getting ready.  Soon we all reconvened for their first look and the family photos.  The sun beat down on us all during the ceremony at the beautiful pavilion at the Hazen Park Center in Oromoncto, and Kelsey blew everyone away when she walked down the aisle.  

Then there were toasts, tears and treasures being passed around, and before we knew it everyone was tearing it up on the dance floor.  We managed to sneak away briefly to get some gorgeous moments on camera down by the riverside, where things were quieter, where every moment counted. 

Our biggest goal for this wedding (and all future weddings) was to get closer.  What I didn't realize going into that thought process was that it was going to help me make a couple of new friends in Chris and Kelsey, two of the most amazing, easy-going people we've had the pleasure of photographing on their wedding day.
