Marianne is a sweet and caring person, and when she looks at Jeremy, you can tell that he is incredibly important in her world. She is fun and silly which balances out his more serious and calm demeanor, although he did strike us as the type to cut loose and have a good time once in awhile too. They share a love of Jeeps, cruising with the top down in the summer, and going out for icecream. After hearing their story about how their photographer on their wedding day didn’t make their wedding, and the fact that they don’t have any beautiful images to remember the day by, we were determined to create something wonderful for them. Read on to see what they had to say about the experience.
“My husband and I will be celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary on August 29th 2017. Our wedding was a wonderful event on board the Tall Ship Silva other than the fact we had hired a photographer who didn’t show up to with no call or explanation and no contact after the fact despite repeated attempts. As much as we knew that the true purpose of that day was to stand in front of our friends and family and become husband and wife, part of me felt like something had been taken from me that could never be recreated. Thankfully, all family and friends ensured I did get a plethora of pictures taken throughout the evening which I do hold precious to this day.
It was in 2016 when through my work, Phoenix Youth Programs, I was the winner of a silent auction package. Rebecca is a big supporter of Phoenix Youth Programs and has worked many of our large fundraisers as a photographer. I soon found out I was the winner of a gift certificate for her services I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I had such a great experience getting professionally photographed before that I felt that it was time to bring out the old wedding dress (to see how it fit!) and try to professionally capture some of moments that existed in reality but were never immortalized. It’s true that you can’t turn back time (8 years is a long time!) but you can feel so special in a present moment that it becomes day just as fantastic. I owe that to Rebecca!
Anyone looking for a photographer in Nova Scotia, wedding or otherwise, should look no further. Rebecca is so personable, funny and immediately put both of us at ease. She was professional and she and her assistant work seamlessly as a team. She took the time to get to know us and the types of pictures we were hoping for. She was so empathetic to the issue surrounding our actual wedding day and went that extra mile to ensure we were pleased.
I feel the photos speak for themselves. She made me feel beautiful and my husband, who tends to shy away from the camera, feel comfortable the entire session. Not only are the photos exceptional, when I look at them I feel a love towards my husband that is even stronger than the day of our wedding. I am so fortunate for this experience that am thankful that being that lucky draw winner lead me to Rebecca and her captivating vision.”
