Classic Bride and Groom Moments

Some of the most classic bride and groom moments as far as a photographer is concerned, are the intimate shots that you can get between the bride and her new husband during the wedding ceremony and reception.

This is one of the most significant days of your lives and you both look fabulous! So this is an excellent opportunity to get some great wedding images that you can use later on for large print or portraits. They also make a great 1st anniversary gift!

Your wedding photographer should not only shoot the wedding ceremony, but take the time to shoot the entire wedding day or weekend so he gets as many candid and "real moment" shots as possible. From the bride and groom to the groomsmen and bridesmaids, the whole wedding party will be included in a variety of locations including rehearsals, wedding reception and additional photo ops at a variety of locations before and after the wedding ceremony. Use a park or get creative at your favorite family location.

Maybe the bride and groom love to golf, so having them tee off at the first hole would make for an inspiring photo. Another idea maybe have them cracking open a fine bottom of wine at a Halifax Winery seated next to some old rum or beer barrels. You are only limited by your imagination and Jason Dorey Photography in Halifax is the first one to jump on board when it comes to trying different locations for a wedding photo shoot anywhere in Nova Scotia.

Another great idea is to have your wedding photographer looking up at you with you are cutting the cake. It's all about light and angles and you will see the amazing results as you as you first see your proofs. Try getting the photographer to kneel in front during the wedding ceremony as you are exchanging rings.. so many ideas!

Capture the action! Some action shots are always nice during a wedding photo shoot. Throwing the bouquet in the air and jumping and dancing to the music at your reception are all great opportunities to show energy in your final pictures. Posed portraits of the family are still a must for most, but the new trend is to work hard to include a wide variety of images that show everyone having fun with lots of different angles and use creative portable lighting to showcase your event.


A Modern Wedding Photography Take On Traditional Venues

There’s an unmatched charm a historic property or a rustic venue like an old barn can bring to your special occasion. There are many places to choose from just like this all across Nova Scotia.

Classic locations and vintage decorations like wagon wheels, old pottery and even hand made furniture or antique cars can add a beautiful element of romance to your wedding day. A great photographer can capture all the charm and natural beauty of these classic elements and bring them up to date with a fresh and creative approach and some well-placed lighting. There are so many old barns and buildings around the province that would make for great on-location shooting.

Get out there, go for a drive, ask your friends, and even publish a post on social media just what you are looking for when deciding on a location for your wedding photo shoot. Want something more modern or a rustic location for your wedding, there are lots of places to choose from. You know what they say.. location, location, location.

The right wedding photographer will know just how to position any of these pieces to make your contemporary wedding photos pop. Now all you need is the right music and your night will be one you and your guest won't ever forget!
