    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!

Love, technology, and a touch of serendipity led Steph and Ed together.  While signing up for a certain swipe-based dating app, Steph fortunately omitted her exact geographic location in New Brunswick, for had she been more specific they might never have been. Before she chanced to fix this error, Ed and Steph both swiped right and their love story (and the commute from Fredericton to Saint John) commenced… lucky in love and their love story began.

Ed and Steph are so sweet they belong together like s’mores and a campfire. And like a cozy sweater and a hug on a chilly Atlantic Canadian evening, Ed and Steph bring out each other’s natural warmth – a perfect fit.  Add in a hike alongside their beautiful pup Leia and the trio is complete!

This Saint John wedding day was so them; they said “I do” at the Diamond Jubilee Ferry Terminal with a backdrop of mist and fog. But a little fog couldn’t dampen their spirits, and in front of their closest friends and family, they promised to build a life of love together. It wasn’t a rushed and chaotic day, but one of quiet meandering around uptown Saint John, walking and enjoying their favourite people, visiting their favourite pub (and having their favourite fries and drinks).  It was easy and real and them.  

Ed and Steph, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

A few days ago I was sitting in my rocking chair holding my sleeping babe when a little sliver of moonlight illuminated his sweet eyelashes as they rested on flushed cherub cheeks, and I decided I wasn’t quite ready to give him over to his inviting crib.  So I held him a little longer just breathing in his sweetness and snuggled in to get caught up on instagram. As I scrolled, I saw a sweet picture from Vero and Dan’s wedding, and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t yet taken the chance to share a full post with you from their beautiful wedding day.

That beautiful, crisp fall day, I knew magic was going to happen; we were going to photograph Vero and Dan against the perfect backdrop of fall colours, and Bates Barn against the most expansive and bluest of cerulean skies.  Vero and Dan’s day was a beautiful mix of kindness, connection, and rustic elegance that felt liked the perfect mash up of “bridal magazine meets modern fairytale” and I am pretty sure my face was aching from smiling the entire day.

There are so many noteworthy things I could share with you from the incredible and oh so fun bridal crew: the stunning florals, the incredible decor, the perfect setting, the band, the planning skills of the bride and her talented mother-in-love, but above all I love the way Vero and Dan looked at each other the whole day.  How Dan’s hand would find Vero’s and how every once and a while he would give her hand in his a little squeeze or a reassuring kiss.  Their day was perfection; you could tell how much love and respect they shared  for each other, and it was a joy to see them promise each other their forevers in front of the their beloved friends and family.




I was so excited to photograph Marcel and Josée’s beautiful wedding day! We met this fun duo under the palms near the swim up bar in Punta Cana while photographing their friends Milene and Randy’s A-mazing destination wedding (see images here!).  But back to Josée and Marcel! These two are snuggly, sweet, super connected and obviously in love, and the chance to photograph their special day made me giddy : )

As we were driving to their getting ready spot, the large, ominous clouds loomed overhead and “grey” seemed to best describe the sky instead of the imagined sunshine and blue skies we’d been crossing our fingers for.  However, upon arriving it was apparent that the weather hadn’t dampened anyone’s spirit; there were still tons of smiles, happy tears and excitement.  As the day progressed it was so obvious we didn’t need perfect weather for this to be the perfect day – Josée and Marcel had eyes only for each other, and their smiles couldn’t be any bigger.  They had a fairytale theme, and their day didn’t disappoint; in fact the weather even added a dramatic and epic element to this romantic day!!


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 : )
