It annoys me that, for sensible business reasons, I have to title make generic ‘key word’ blog titles, like “Halifax wedding at venue: wherever!”. I have to do it because Google indexes websites by the word content, with special emphasis on the title. In other words, the machine overlords are looking for special words to categorize me, and I know that, so I have to say things like “photography” and “Nova Scotia” a lot in my blogs. It probably REALLY helps that I say things like “Halifax wedding photographers” as often as possible. So, pardon all my Halifax wedding photographers comments. Hey, it’s the times, right?
In a perfect world, I’d title this something like: “Humans with their priorities straight give convincing marital vows!” But headlines like that don’t get you on top of Google any better than they sell newspapers. Everyone these days is buying Trump and whatever yesterday’s tragedy was. It’s enough to get you cynical. Real cynical. Halifax wedding photographers.
My favourite moment in this wedding was one that for me, encapsulates who J & B are, as parents and as human beings. It was a funny moment after the ceremony, after pictures, after dinner, as the sun was getting really low on the horizon. J wanted photos by the ocean when the sun was the lowest it was going to get before disappearing–that neato window of the day when the sky starts reflecting really interesting hues all over the place. Well, that moment had just come, and we’d all managed to escape the venue for a few quick, cool shots. At that same time, a train came thundering our way, inevitably blocking our ocean view until it passed. But it didn’t pass. It just parked between us and the ocean. Result? I got some of my favourite photos captured this year. Turns out, J & B’s son is bananas about trains, and they were both so excited about this train coming through that we got to catch real, awesome moments–pure, spontaneous joy. Neither J & B were at all upset that their ocean photos wasn’t going to happen. And hey, it’s not like we didn’t get some great ones from a slightly different direction…as well as the excitement as the train came by. It’s all that Halifax wedding photographers could hope for. In Nova Scotia.
I hope you enjoy some of our favourite moments of this Halifax wedding, captured by photographers.
