2018 Year in Review

2018 Year in Review

2018 has been a different year professionally for me. My weddings slowed down a bit but my commercial work increased, which you can view here (soon). On the personal side of things a lot of growth has come with much more on the horizon. First year in many I didn’t get a chance to head east to my beloved Cape Breton; you were dearly missed!

Got to shoot some fabulous engagements of an amazing couple, Natasha and Nishant, back in my (kinda) hometown of Ottawa on THE hottest day of the year! And I finished off my wedding calendar with a destination to Mexico with two beautiful souls Amanda and Adrian.

Here are some of my favourites from all the highlights I shared with the world this 2018. Hope you enjoy. If your recently engaged or know someone who is – have them contact me for a highly experienced, fun loving energetic photographer – ME!

Cheers to 2019!    Trevor

Jessica + Troy – Inverness, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

“I’ve never seen a thunder storm that intense in this area in my life” said my mother-in-law, who grew up in the Inverness area of Cape Breton.

The night before Jessica and Troy’s wedding a storm system rolled through around 10pm followed by another (I think) around 2am. As luck would have it we woke up to sunshine, partly cloudy, and nice cool breeze. Prefect day for a wedding in a beautiful seaside town such a Inverness, Nova Scotia.

Here are some of the highlights from their east coast wedding. Enjoy.

Cheers, Trevor

Gillian + Andrew – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario based photographer

I love first looks. Gillian and Andrew decided to do a first look at Fort Malden in the quaint town of Amherstburg, ON. If you haven’t been to Fort Malden I do highly recommend a visit. This place was perfect for a first look. We arrived with plenty of time for me to set Andrew in a great spot for Gillian to walk up, touch his shoulder. It was a great moment that they will never forget. The rain held off for us till after we left for the reception at Sprucewood Shores Winery. With luck on our side the sun poked out 5 minutes before sun down. Couldn’t have asked for a better day.

A little story on Gillian and Andrew’s proposal…Andrew proposed on Christopher’s Cove in Newfoundland.  Christopher’s Cove is a small piece of land that Andrew’s family has owned for many years.  We were visiting Newfoundland for a family reunion.  Andrew took Gillian down to the beach on a sunny day and proposed.  We then got to share the news with the 50+ relatives who were waiting back at the cottage.

Congrats to you both, Gillian and Andrew!

Cheers, Trevor

Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

I finally had the opportunity to get back to one of Canada’s most iconic locations of this great giant nation. In my mind THE most iconic. Peggys Cove! Just south east of Halifax, the drive takes about 45-50 min down a very picturesque road.

I flew to Halifax on my way to Cape Breton for a wedding a few days later and decided to jump on the chance to see my favourite lighthouse. Arriving to the tiny community around 3 in the afternoon where the lighthouse sits majestically on top of some giant barren exposed rocks I found my parking spot for the day and grabbed my camera. My plan was to spend the afternoon photographing the lighthouse and her community, enjoy some fresh mussels for dinner and catch the sunset. Thankfully the weather was absolutely amazing for it all to come together.

While sitting down about to enjoy those fresh mussels an old friend from Windsor saw on facebook I was there and mentioned he now lives 30 min away with his wife and family. Calum (McPhee) was flying home from his work out west and graciously offer me to stay there instead of me driving to Cape Breton that evening. I jumped at the offer as the thought of driving 3.5 hours on the trans-Canada at night wasn’t really appealing compared to 30 min up the road.

By the time the sun was almost on the horizon the amount of people had tripled along with the amount of tripods. I found my location(s) where I thought was the best angle, just due west of the lighthouse on a low outcropping of exposed rocks. Thankfully there wasn’t the amount of people like there was on the main rocks as myself and just one other photographer from the UK enjoyed this pristine spot.

That other photographer did take a huge chance venturing onto some of the (not so safe) black rocks to grab another angle. Which you can see in one of my photos. Shaking my head my thoughts went back to a young fellow from my home town of Smiths Falls, ON how just a few months prior got hit by a rogue wave while on some of these black rocks and was swept away. Very sad. Even worse is that he was never found. There are warning signs saying not to go onto these black rocks for the potential of getting swept away by one of these waves is good. Yet all day I saw people from all walks of life, all age groups doing just that and taking that huge risk.

It was a beautiful day, beautiful location, beautiful sunset. If you ever have the chance to see this part of our great country of Canada, don’t hesitate. Go see it! And I recommend the fresh mussels!

Cheers, Trevor
