I can’t remember when I first met Tim, but I know I first met Tracy at her cousin Kristy’s wedding a couple years ago. Tim on the other works with my wife, so I had met him at some point before then, and yes, for some reason I agreed to shoot his wedding. I actually coined a nickname for Tim by adding an umlaut over the U in his last name. I don’t know if the name stuck, but I still refer to him as that. Anyways, the engagement session; we met up at the Wooden Monkey in downtown Halifax and if you’ve been downtown recently, you’re well aware of all the construction going on, so the street in front of the restaurant was closed. Our reason for meeting there is that it is where Tracy and Tim had their first date.
We managed a couple shots in the limited space around the Wooden Monkey and then carried on walking around the area looking for other locations. I always love the shot with the Clock Tower on Citadel Hill in the background, so we took to the middle of the quiet Sunday evening streets to make that happen with little interruption from anyone trying to actually drive on the roads. There was a large tour group we had to contend with a few times but aside from that, it was almost eerily quiet downtown. I’ll say no more and let you have a look at a few shots from our time together.
