Sylvia first contacted me about a year ago for her wedding photos. The three of us met up at Tim Horton’s one day to just chat and make sure that we were all looking for the same things out of wedding photos. They decided to hire me. :) We got together a second time for me to shoot their engagement photos at Peggy’s Cove. Something I try to do with all wedding clients just to break the ice and give us a little more history together so I’m not a complete stranger the day of.
We’ve all been waiting so long for this day to come and then all the sudden it was the day of. The weeks leading up to the wedding I’m sure I grew an ulcer stressing over it. These people are beautiful people inside and out and the thought of ever letting them down on my end was honestly horrifying. However, the day came and it was probably the most stress free wedding I have ever shot. I’ve shot/assisted over 11 in the past few years and I can really say this was the least stressful. So I developed my faux ulcer for nothing.
As I was driving to Bayers Lake to meet the girls and capture them getting their hair done it was pouring out. Just given’r. All I could think was “crap, … crapcrap, …. crapp, please stop” the entire way there. Much to our surprise it must have got it all out of it’s system because the day was lovely. Cloudy, sunny, warm, and overall a good day for some photo taking.
If you know me, you automatically know that I am a car person. I don’t know everything about cars or worship them —however an old ‘67 Fastback can literally bring tears to my eyes. So you’ll imagine my joy when Sylvia emailed me saying that their wedding car was a Rolls Royce. And that I got to ride around in the Rolls. Let me tell you. My boyfriend’s super charged and very gorgeous Nissan 350Z got looks —but this car. Wow. Everyone was stopping and video taping us, and taking photos, and coming up to talk and just in general awe of how luxurious this car is.
Special thanks to my assistant, Samee Rose.
So without further adieu, Sylvia and Jord’s wedding through my lens…
** ^ This is the general reaction people gave us to the car. Stopping and staring with their mouths open. :)
** ^ I would like to thank the man in the car beside them that was yelling out stuff making them laugh and feel nice and awkward. Thanks dude. Look at the smile on Jordan’s face.
** ^ When we were done with the car we got out on Granville street and people were once again aweing over the car and clapping and saying congratulations to the newly weds. You don’t really realize JUST how friendly Halifax can be until you’ve walked around downtown with a someone in a wedding dress. Try it sometime.
** ^ A smile NEVER left her face all day.
** ^ During the reception I learned that back in the day Jordan had actually been a model. Once. In a Sears catalogue I think it was.
** Every time somebody wanted them to kiss they clinked their glasses and had to make a donation to the SPCA.
