Julia & Rob
Wedding Photography Proposal

September 24, 2022 | The Lord Nelson Hotel

Julia & Rob

You just got engaged in December — congrats! You live in Toronto together, but since Julia’s from Nova Scotia, you’re planning your wedding in Halifax — it will take place at The Lord Nelson Hotel on September 24, 2022.

You chose The Lord Nelson because it’s beautiful and will be a convenient option for your guests, many of whom will be traveling to Halifax for the wedding weekend. You want to give your 150 guests a wonderful experience and enjoy spending time with them!

As far as colors/decor, you’re planning to have Laura of Crocus Designs do the floral design for your day, with a focus on greenery and neutrals — simple but elegant, showing off the beauty of the hotel.

You’ve been looking for a photographer with more of a bright, true-to-color style as opposed to moody, dark photos. You really love photos that are natural, candid, and real— no overly staged or “passionate” couple photos! You really want to come away from the day with a few great classic portraits of you, your families, and the meaningful moments throughout the wedding day. You’re looking for a photographer who can direct and “shepherd” you throughout the day, guiding you to the best lighting, and helping you look and feel your best in front of the camera.

“We had almost worked with another wedding photographer that didn’t feel quite like ‘us,’ but when we met with Alyssa, it immediately felt like we were meeting with an old friend. She made every part of our wedding day feel seamless and calm, and everyone in the wedding party commented on what a joy it was having her with us throughout the day.”

“We didn’t want the cheesy, fake smiles that so often appear in wedding albums on our Facebook feeds! Alyssa’s photos are pure magic. They’re real and they’re raw and they have the power to plop you right back in the middle of each moment.”

Mary Corder & Josh

 Here are three wedding galleries I thought you’d like to see!

Each of these weddings had elements of the wedding you described: a smaller guest list, a focus on quality time with their family and friends, and beautiful locations for portraits!

“Working with Alyssa is like working with one of your best friends. From the very beginning she took the time to listen to all of my hopes and dreams for my wedding as well as things I was concerned about . . . She really takes the time to listen and understand her clients and I appreciated that so much.”
