Just a few more days until these two get married at Pictou Lodge.  The one and only time I shot a wedding there before, there was a hurricane the day of.  When I told her that, she said “yeah that would be our luck”  Here’s hoping she’s wrong but if not, there are lots of options at that beautiful location.  No worries, we’ve got this.

Josh and Tamara were married on her grandparents’ property in Upper Stewiacke.  We had done family pictures there before and I knew it was a gorgeous setting, but the work that went into getting the site ready for the wedding is truly unbelievable.  As in (just one example) planting purple and yellow flowers (hundreds of them) to match Tamara’s wedding colours.  I think we just added a princess to the family (just kidding Tamara xo)   Thanks to Tara MacPhee for second shooting  (  Some of the following images were taken by her.  Awesome cake (it was camo inside!) by


I come from a long line of criers and emotional people (despite being from so called strong stoic Scottish stock). We wear our hearts right there on our sleeves.   I often cry at the weddings I photograph – hiding there behind the camera.  So I really really loved not being the only one at this wedding with a tear or two.

    Awesome pictures, they really captured the day!

These two share a mutual love of soccer AND their puppy and wanted to incorporate those two things into their engagement session.

This summer I will be working with a new second shooter for  most weddings.  Some of these images were taken by her.  Big thanks Tara MacPhee.  In case you doubt it, its not easy being a second shooter.  Check out more of her work at
