Rachel and Kevin live in Washington DC. and they often plans weekend getaways to other cities in North America. For this Montreal trip, Rachel came thinking it will be just a another one of their usual getaways but Kevin, her boyfriend, had other plans. They are to leave Montreal as future husband and wife to be.
I had never met Kevin before the proposal day, he reached out to me after seeing this previous surprise proposal in Square Saint Louis. He wanted to surprise Rachel and have the proposal documented in secret. Kevin has already done his research on possible locations that are unique to Montreal. After arranging some secret phone calls and discussing it together, we settled on the clock tower pier in the old port.
It is no secret that I LOVE photographing engagement sessions; they are a great way to get to know the couple and get them to practice being in front of the camera. It always make posing on the wedding day a lot easier. And most important of all , the couple has more flexibility when it comes to shooting location and time and that opens the door for the photographer to be more creative for the session. This session in particular has a killer location (Saint Joseph Oratory) and ideal shooting time (Golden hour at sunet).
Are you hesitating about eloping?
Don’t, just go for it!
As much I love a large celebration with a fun wedding party, elopements are slowly becoming one of my favorite type of weddings to photograph. I love how they allow me to focus on the coupe and their love in an intimate and relaxed setting.
When Doriane and Vincent first reached out to me to be their elopement wedding photographer, my answer was a big “Yes, Please!” As we met over skype and discussed how they envisioned their elopement to be, I knew they were exactly my type of clients.
Before every engagement photoshoot, I ask the couple to choose a location and a theme that reflects their personality and represents what they would do on a usual Sunday. Some would choose to eat out in a restaurant, some choose a mountain hiking excursion. Dan and Adelina's typical Sunday is a stroll in the old port with their cute fluffy white Pomeranian doggy. So this is what we decided to do for their engagement photoshoot
When Amanda first called me to tell me about her engagement party, I knew right away that I wanted to be there to document it; custom made center pieces, custom wedding favors, DIY decor and sweet table with rustique wedding cake...
