Halifax Citadel Wedding | The one where a best friend gets married | Jared and Mike

August 23, 2023

As a photographer, there are few experiences more exhilarating than being trusted to capture all the fun and laughter of a couples’ most important day. When that event happens to be the wedding of my oldest friends, the excitement and significance are amplified to a whole new level. Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to photograph Jared and Mike’s wedding at the iconic Citadel Hill in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and it was an unforgettable experience!

The ceremony was one of the few sunny days we’ve had in Halifax this year and boy did we melt a bit. Best part of being at the highest point in the city is that we got the best breeze that did some real heavy lifting!

During the portrait session we always say it’s a fun little hangout that we also capture photographs of. Butttt when you’re hanging out with someone you’ve known since elementary school, the jokes and silliness really kick it up a notch!

Also, legit one of the highlights of photographing a wedding at Citadel Hill is the opportunity to explore the historic site and incorporate its architectural beauty into the photographs.

We headed to Hotel Halifax for the reception, at this point I got to put down the camera and hang out with friends. As a rare treat, Sebrina had to keep working and capture all the festivities and put up with all my jokes since I didn’t have to concentrate on photography (ha!).

Unfortunately the AC broke down so we had to really sweat up the dance floor and I closed the night out dancing with all my friends to “Mr Brightside”. Truly unforgettable!
