Genevieve and Anthony first approached us for their engagement photos two years ago. We shot them on citadel hill, in the heart of Halifax. As we made our way down towards the waterfront in became apparent that these two had a special kind of love. They met at university in Cape Breton, where the bride is from. The groom is not from Cape Breton, Anthony is from Kenya and came to Canada to study at Cape Breton University. We'll never know if it was in his plans to meet his future wife there, but it was in someone's plans that they meet, there is no doubt in that.
When they asked us to shoot their wedding we were thrilled, how lucky were we to be brought into this incredible love story!
Then something happened, Liz got pregnant and her due date was very close to the wedding date. She gave them two options: They could stick with us and hope that Liz would either have given birth and be well enough to photograph a wedding or, allow her husband, Richard to shoot the wedding. Confident in our work they decided to stick with us, which was awesome because we were all super excited to be a part of this awesome themed wedding.
Around January we had a conversation with our partner Nathan (you know, the guy who has been shooting all of these amazing weddings and engagements in Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia). Typically he doesn't come out to Halifax until the summer. Seeing our plight, and knowing that Richard has only shot as a second shooter he decided to come out specifically for this wedding! We were in luck! With Nathan as the primary shooter we were ready to go work some One Blue Fish magic. (Couples like Anthony and Genevieve make it so easy.)
Congratulations to the beautiful bride and groom!
