We are not dress trashing | Halifax wedding photographer

Calling all brides, get back into your dress and let’s have some fun!! You probably paid a fortune for it, and you look like a goddess in it, so put it back on. We don’t have to ruin it, or we totally can… What do you want that you didn’t get on the day of? Or just for fun, let’s do this 🙂

I was lucky enough to shoot Samantha and Dan’s gorgeous backyard wedding last summer, and was super pumped to photograph beautiful Sam again. I mean look at this girl! Insane! We started planning this shoot months ago, and surprisingly the date worked out , and the weather held up, and the blossoms were in full bloom in Windsor. Who doesn’t love to visit the Valley in the spring, it’s a romantic spot all on it’s own.

As a bride-to-be myself I am completely overwhelmed by the amazing talent in the wedding industry in Nova Scotia. Bride and groom’s can have it all, and use stellar local talent. I decided to get a few of my favourites to collaborate on this shoot with me, to make it extra special. So a HUGE HUGE thank you to these ridiculously talented ladies. Please check them all out, they’re amazing!

A better shot of the amazing detail Nicole McInnis puts into her OH DINA! unique hand crafted pieces. Seriously she was sewing and creating while we chatted about the shoot, it was amazing to see her in action!
