It was a day of firsts for me today, my first time taking photos for Prom and I hadn’t realized it until I was on my way, but it was my first time working as a photographer in Nova Scotia. I’ve shot a number of weddings since moving to Halifax in October, but they’ve all been in Ontario so far.
Back in Ontario, Prom isn’t a big deal like it is here in Nova Scotia. I couldn’t believe how many people there were at the Public Gardens in Halifax, there were hundreds of students from Sackville High School and their families. I remember how we did photos for my ‘Grad’ as we called it. I took a few photos with my girlfriend in my parents backyard and then we did a few more at my friend’s house before heading out, it was nothing like this.
I was taking pictures on behalf of Cyndi, whose mother Sandra works with and is a friend of my wife. Cyndi and her boyfriend of 7 months Glen were matching with Cyndi in a lovely teal dress with Glen wearing the matching tie. They met with a bunch of their friends and we took photos with different combinations of just about everyone they ran into.
Here are a few photos from Cyndi’s Prom. Congratulations on graduating from Sackville High School!
