DANIELLE + IAN | ANNAPOLIS VALLEY ENGAGEMENT SESSION

"You deserve somebody who inspires you toward greater things, while loving you exactly as you are."

These two flew in from Toronto and spent a beautiful afternoon in Lunenburg with us, It also turned out to be a very special day for them as it was the day Ian had proposed to Danielle exactly a year ago. We drove around, laughed, shared stories and strolled along the waterfront. They showed us some new and awesome spots -- it's amazing how our job gives us the opportunity to see and appreciate places we've been to before with fresh eyes.  

Here are a few of our favorites from our afternoon with these two.

BOBBIE + RYAN | HALIFAX ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Last week, we visited this beautiful spot where Ryan proposed to Bobbie . These two rocked their session and we are sooo excited to be a part of their wedding this fall!

There's just something about the water that reminds us so much of home -- a place where we feel empowered and free... and humbled to call Nova Scotia "our home away from home."  

Any place near the ocean is special to us. We both grew up by the water, so we have a deep love and respect for any place near the water (ocean or lake). We love exploring beaches, just hanging out on the rocks, listening to the waves.

THE FIRST LOOK

What we love about shooting weddings is that you'll never know what's going to happen next. 

In a recent wedding that we did, the couple opted for a first look. As our bride was getting ready to see her groom, her little one just wouldn't let go. In fact, she hugged mom even tighter. 

Our bride went on to see her groom by the deck with little Scarlett -- and you know what? it couldn't have been more perfect.

We just want to thank all our amazing couples for letting us document your stories of love. We feel very grateful for being able to do what we do and thankful to you guys for letting us be a part of your journey.

Much love + appreciation: Dave and Pring

EMMA + BRAD | ANNAPOLIS VALLEY ENGAGEMENT SESSION

"My love story is not the typical one! When I started my first part time job in junior high, my very first day of work - the guy training me was telling me how to finish my shift - bringing garbage to the dumpster. Upon bringing the trash out, I realized the lid was too heavy for me to lift as it was a heavy metal one. I got my trainer to come help me, and when he lifted the lid for me to throw in the trash, he dropped the lid on 3 of my fingers! Needless to say, I ended up in Emerge with 3 crushed fingers. As I rested at home the next day, my trainer called and asked if he could make it up to me by taking me to a movie... And 7 years later, I'm still in love with my man who broke my fingers."

We had an amazing adventure with these two on a perfectly overcast spring day. Having lived in the valley for a few years now, we have always wanted to shoot along the coast of the Bay of Fundy. When Emma and Brad gave us the freedom to plan for their engagement session, we knew we had to make it happen! Allow us to share a few of our favorites from their session.

RYLEY + SOPHIE | ANNAPOLIS VALLEY EQUINE SESSION

This spring "wintery" day definitely takes us back to that awesome time we had with these sisters. Thank you for welcoming us into your "home" Ryley and Sophie.

Allow us to share a few highlights of our session below.

COLBY + CRYSTAL | ANNAPOLIS VALLEY ENGAGEMENT SESSION

We finally had a bit of snowfall after a few weeks of being "snow-free" here in Nova Scotia. We were probably the only ones who were happy when the forecast showed periods of snow as this might be our last chance to have a winter-themed engagement session. 

It was unbelievably cold that day with blowing snow the whole time but Colby and Crystal were such troopers! We started out with a few snaps indoors with their two little ones before heading out to brave the cold. All we can say is... it was definitely worth the wait! 

Here are a few favorites from our session:

BRITTANY + MIKE | HALIFAX ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Scrolling down through the photos, one wouldn't think it was freezing cold the day we had Brittany and Mike's engagement session -- but it sure was! We started out having some photos with little Carter and then managed to spend some time alone with these two.

The love between them was so contagious! Allow us to share a few of our favorites from that day. 

NATASHA + ANDREW | 2015 ENGAGEMENTS

When Natasha's sister, Melissa, informed us that she wanted to surprise her sister (and fiance) with an engagement session, we were thrilled! Weeks leading to our session, we were in touch with Natasha who had such awesome ideas for the shoot! We love it when our clients are so involved with the session... we love showing off their personalities in the photos we take. 

Mid-October came and the weather wasn't quite on our side the day of the photo shoot. The morning started out sunny. As the day progressed, the afternoon called for light rain. Natasha and Andrew still wanted to push through with our session and we were so glad they did! They led us to a perfect location in the Annapolis Valley. It was a property owned by friends of Andrew's family which has now become one of our favorite spots especially during the fall. 

Here's what happened that afternoon, as we chatted away over wine and scrabble while getting some in-between cuddles from their sweet Havanese dog, Charlie.
