Lauren & Jordan - Pictou Lodge, Nova Scotia


It's funny how I don't get to meet a lot of my clients before I photograph their weddings. Years ago it was mostly local people I was booking and I was able to meet with them 1 on 1 to discuss their wedding plans, expectations, dreams...the whole nine yards. Lately that has shifted to many young couples choosing Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island for their 'destination wedding'. Most of these clients have roots in Nova Scotia, but now call somewhere else home. I may get to Skype with them once before the wedding and we can stare at the beautiful pixelated versions of each other, but nothing beats when we finally get to meet in person. It's exciting to be thrown into this wedding day world of new faces, new relationships and a lifetime of stories; and to be there to photograph every bright detail and every fleeting moment. Sometimes you just hit it off and the day is pure magic. Location: The Pictou Lodge Beach Resort Hair/Makeup: Lauren Arbuckle
