2011 Wedding Favourites – Dustin Hall Photography

What a year.

2011 was a year full of great memories.  I recently posted about my favourite personal photos of the year, and if you’ve read that or stop  by frequently, you’re aware I moved half way across the country.  I’ve yet to shoot a wedding in Nova Scotia, but you’ll see those throughout 2012.  This post however is about 2011.  I shot weddings in every season and had some pretty extreme temperatures, from the freezing cold of Shannon and Rich’s wedding in January to the sweltering heat of Rachel and Dan’s.  There was fog, rain, snow and of course bright sunlight.  The best light I had was at Peter and Anita’s wedding in September where the ceremony was later in the day and everything seemed to come together perfectly for them.

I met a lot of amazing people at the weddings I attended and was fortunate enough to witness some amazing speeches which varied from emotional tear jerkers to comedic moments so funny they deserve their own place on a comedy network special.  I did my best to capture every moment on camera for my couples and I’m proud of what I’ve delivered at the end of the day.

I love to be there for all these moments and nothing feels better than receiving that e-mail from an ecstatic bride who loves her photos, it means so much to me to know the photos will be cherished for years to come.

Below are my favourite wedding photos of 2011.  There’s a difference between my favourite photos and my best photos.  My favourites are not necessarily my best, but I like them for one reason or another.  That reason may not be apparent if you weren’t at the wedding, but that’s alright, if you were there, you’ll get it.

Alas, I’ll stop writing and just get to the pictures.
