We met at work… the first time he saw Amber he said she was walking in holding a banana, the first time Amber saw Chris she was speechless (well lets be real, the first 20 times she was speechless) & now, the rest is history.
We are based out of the East Coast of Canada, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We consider ourselves blessed to live in such an amazing place where the ocean surrounds us, the views are incredible and the people are amazing. Chris was born in Yarmouth, NS but spent many years living in Texas. He would come back every chance he got knowing that eventually he would get to move back home. Amber was born and raised in Nova Scotia and has soaked up and loved every minute of it.
We are constantly exploring our beautiful province, the Maritimes, and all that Canada has to offer – and of course we are always planning our next big adventures, as we strive to see the entire world. We are major foodies and will often travel a few hours just to get a taste of our favorite dishes and it wouldn’t be unusual for us to plan almost our entire trips around what we want to eat. Being foodies, we are so lucky that the food scene in Halifax has a lot to offer – we are forever chowing down on donair, poutine, shawarma, mac & cheese, Chris Brothers peperoni and finding amazing places for Thai, ramen and much more.
For us, love is Amber forever being silly in Chris’ photos and him forever being serious in hers, love is coffee dates every Sunday morning, love is him always giving her the pickles off his burger or his shawarma plates, and making her dinner every night because she can’t cook for the life of her, and her keeping his life grounded and organized love is always swooning over how cute our cats are, forever sending each other videos of baby animals and binge watching Netflix shows cuddled up on the couch, love forever being there for each other, being each others best friend and working towards our dreams and building our best life together – forever.
After getting married (you can read more here about our wedding in Las Vegas) we knew that we wanted to document love stories – every love story is unique and we think it is so important that they are captured authentically. We strive to capture those candid moments – the ones full of giggles, the ones where you feel totally at peace and the in-betweens that happen when you think no one is watching. We want to know you, and we want people to be able to hear your story through the images we deliver and we want to be more than just your photographer – we want to be your friend.
Connecting with other couples who love deeply, are best friends, love adventure, who would do anything for their boo, that aren’t afraid to get dirty and love to laugh and have fun is what makes our job so incredible. Let’s chat about your crazy, unique and beautiful love – and let’s create something beautiful together.
Here is a list of some places we’d LOVE to see. Are you planning a epic elopement, love our work and want us to tag along and capture all the warm fuzzy amazing memories?? contact us! we’d LOVE to join.

This list is forever changing and in no particular order, but we LOVE to travel and would be down for any kind of adventure!
