Have you ever thought of a nautical town?

One that is just full of lobster traps, fishing boats, beautifully coloured rows of shops and the sound of the surf? I have. A lot. When you take pictures for a living you need to be constantly on the look for great spots to actually take the pictures. Unlike portraiture or studio photography, my workspace is constantly changing. It's a blessing though, don't get me wrong. I've seen parts of this country and province I would have never imagined. And they are all amazing.

Fisherman's Cove, Nova Scotia.

That's it. The secret spot. Just on the edge of the water next to Eastern Shore. I admit, this shoot was my first time there, but I guarantee you it won't be my last time! You can tell when a community takes pride in itself. You can tell by the fresh paint, the straight and well maintained fences and the attractive layout. You can tell by the people who walk by and offer a smile to a stranger; a friendly, "How's it going?" 

Photos for a couple in love; betrothed.

These two sweethearts are getting married soon. They wanted photos in the snow and with a beautiful Nova Scotian feel. Melissa suggested Fisherman's Cove and we set a date. Well, we actually ended up setting a few dates, our first session got rained out. I'm talking about the kind of rain you can't shoot in. I tell my clients we love shooting in the rain, and that's true, but there is a distinct difference between the rain we like shooting in and the monsoon that arrived the minute we were about to begin Melissa and David's first e-session back in October. I think it's for the better though. I absolutely love this set and I think you will too.

Can't wait for the wedding!
