My grandparents have owned a cottage in Nova Scotia since the mid 1950’s and I have been lucky enough to visit most summers of my life. Matt’s family has been going there for an equally long time and has a cabin next to ours. Matt and Kate are just special people, and it shows in the photos. In 2008 I photographed Matt’s brother’s wedding in Maine, USA, so when Matt and Kate asked me to photograph their wedding in New York, I was thrilled. Since we both managed to find time to visit the cottage, it seemed a fitting place for engagement photos before the wedding!
These are some of my favourite engagement photos of any couple I have shot. Matt and Kate are just special people, and it shows in the photos. They are extremely kind, intelligent, multi-talented and generous people. And they could both be models, which doesn’t hurt.
We had a great time on the beach, before walking to a nearby field with an old barn half standing on the property. The three of us had a really nice connection and the images just flowed….
I’m looking forward to photographing their beautiful wedding in New York, in June.
