    Matt+Chera = romantic and fun photography!

    Matthew and I have been shooting weddings and portraits together for over ten years. We have this amazing connection in life where we just get each other and get moments that are meaningful to others. I could tell you more about us, but I'd rather show you some of our work! Thanks for stopping by!

Typically, I write a little something about our couples and their wedding day to start off a blog post, but in this case it is just so obvious from the photos how sweet and in love Arielle and Aram are that I thought I would instead lead with Arielle’s own words (via her generous review on our facebook page) as a further testament to their genuinely joyful and positive spirits. Thanks again to you both for including us in your destination wedding day!!

“Traveling from Phoenix, Arizona to Fox Harb’r, Nova Scotia for our wedding made many planning decisions just a little more difficult. Choosing a photographer was not one of them!
I spent 5 minutes on Matt and Chera’s website and was convinced!
Not only are their photos brilliant, but spending a significant part of our wedding afternoon joking and laughing with them was one of the highlights of a perfect day! I was so nervous I’d be awkward in photos but Matt and Chera made it easy to just be ourselves!
Chera went to a huge effort with our 15 month old flower girl and got her smiling every time!
I highly recommend Yorke Photography! Whether you’re coming from near or far, you will not be regret allowing them to capture one of the best days of your life!”

Steph and Bernard are amazingly sweet and have been together since high school. With all that time together their love has just grown and flourished, and it was a pleasure to photograph this sweet couple and their hilarious crew! But enough from me, scroll away and check out their gorgeous images : )

While the wind whipped, and hues of dark blue and grey painted the cloud-filled sky, the dim day could do nothing to diminish the bright and cheerful mood inside a cozy cottage in Cocagne.  The girls were buzzing with excitement, smiles, laughter a few happy tears as they prepared for the ceremony; and as each detail of the day was revealed, you could see how much hope, happiness and love was put into the whole wedding.  

Vanessa and Ben are so sweet and genuinely swoon-worthily in love. Through their entire ceremony I melted a little: from the moment Vanessa walked in, Ben was overtaken with emotion, as the wedding progressed they would give each other little hand squeezes of encouragement; they weren’t afraid to sneak a quick kiss, and Vanessa adorably adjusted Ben’s bow tie; but my absolute favourite was the way Ben looked at Vanessa the whole day.  I would catch him just looking at her adoringly during the ceremony; he would sneak a glance, and you could tell he was awed by her beauty and so happy to be marrying her.   The rest of the day he kept it up, sneaking these sweet looks at his bride, and it did my overly mushy and romantic heart good – I can just tell you, Vanessa, that you are and will be so extremely well loved!!

Not only were these two adorable and so in love and easy to photograph, but they also braved freezing weather and hurricane-like winds, bravely hugging and smiling through the whole thing!! You two are just treasures. We loved your wedding, and we loved photographing the two of you. Congratulations on a beautiful wedding and blessings for an amazing marriage Vanessa and Ben!!  ~Chera

Buds just begging to bloom, songs birds sweetly announcing the season’s change, and the soft sun’s light shining down on all of flowering perfection… these are of course signs of spring, but even more they are wonderful signs that wedding season is here again.

We loved photographing Ryan and Marie-Claude’s beautiful wedding; their adorable daughter, Ryan’s subtle and genuine romantic sweetness, Marie’s stunningly gorgeous Bella Promessa dress, the deepest of blue skies, and the loveliest fragrant lily bouquet were all of the most perfect ingredients for a spectacular day.  We couldn’t have had a better start to wedding season if we tried!!  And a special thanks to the wonderful folks at the Cocoa Room for their hospitality, stunning location, and their ability to create such a truly warm and beautiful ambience!

I am simply and utterly a hopeless romantic; I hold a beautiful degree in English Literature that represents countless hours lost in swoon-worthy prose, achingly beautiful poetry, and lines rhymed or unrhymed all dedicated to a certain topic of which I have still never tired – Love.  My eyes have searched over millions of words both modern and archaic some employing rhythm, metaphor, allusion all in a muddle trying to sort out the idea and the perfect description of It.  I swear I never tire of the topic, and I never stop looking for it.  There is no cynicism to be had here.  I believe in happy endings and two souls who want to sit on a porch watching the sunset at the end of a long day…..a long life.  So there you have it, I guess my love ideal is a shared porch swing and two weathered hands that always reach out for each other knowing that the one who holds your hand hold your heart and there is no safer place to be in the world.

And I guess I have done all of that rambling to say that even though I can’t describe or perfectly articulate my thoughts on love, I am a bit of an expert at recognizing it…be that on a page or in real life.  And what I have seen between Jody and Sarah makes me overjoyed, because they have found It.  They way Jody smiles at his girl and the way she smiles back radiates the love and respect that will see them through to their porch swing days.

Watching Sarah look at Jody, the verse in Song of Solomon came to mind for her: “I have found the one whom my soul loves” –  Sarah, I know you have found him, and lucky you he is a Newfy to boot.  Blessings to you both, and may you live a life well loved!!
