Ladda + Francis: Married

We're feeling a lot of heat today in Montreal but I'd like to go back to a day in early April when there were patches of snow melting away; my first couple to get married in 2017, Ladda + Francis. Ladda is a photographer as well, and very good! She knew what I was going through from behind the scenes and was incredibly accommodating and a breeze to work with. Francis is an incredibly kind and loving person, all of which I got to know in this limited but eventful day together. The importance he placed on Ladda's daughter had me tearing up - he knew he was coming into a family that had started before he arrived, and loves her insurmountably. It showed throughout the day how much she loves him too.

I'm thrilled to have been with this family from make up to ceremony, I wish them all the happiness they can find, congratulations to L+F!

Venue: Le Mirage

G+J: Expecting

After a short hiatus on my blog I have many works to share, wonderful people, strong images, beautiful scenery. Everyday I'm proud to have built this business, that I can have these experiences with other real, down to earth people. G+J were a pleasure to meet and get to know as we trekked through a wooded area of Saint-Lazare. I learnt that they met while working in one of the most remote and Northern areas of North America. They chose Saint Lazare and Hudson as their own home base, and now, as you can see, are starting a family. Only a few short weeks after this shoot they had their first baby. Thanks G+J for allowing me to catch these photos of you, many congratulations to their growing family!

Dara + Dylan: Engagement

On one of the last snowy days we had in Montreal I had the pleasure of meeting Dara, Dylan and their (big) sweetheart Shyna in the town of St. Eustache for their engagement photos. This is one of the only times I'm very fond of the snow, because it was a perfect covering on the tree branches and not too cold! Not something we get all winter long! Dara and Dylan are such lovely people, it was a pleasure to walk around with them, learn about their relationship, their lives together in Montreal, and their fur baby Shyna! She loved the snow and we were stopped a number of times by people strolling by wanting to meet her. Who could blame them.

Thank you D + D + S for the afternoon in your hometown, and congratulations on your engagement!

Hitched MTL

Hitched MTL was an incredible experience to be a part of! The event was the only of it's kind in town and first of what will hopefully be a yearly event to benefit a great cause and help bride and groom's find the best vendors Montreal has to offer.

The event consisted of approximately 40 vendors and 120 guests, all bride and grooms to-be. The event donated all of it's earnings to the Montreal Children's Hospital, while putting on a pretty spectacular party. Food, drink, music, and a show!

Thank you Hitched MTL for allowing me to join!

Veronica's Baby Shower

Veronica and Bill have been on this blog before for their wedding day. I was beyond thrilled to hear that they were having a baby boy! They are now proud parents. I loved this intimate, yet enormously special occasion that took place in Montreal at the Cardinal Tea Room. Veronica welcomed back her florist from the wedding day, Astilbe, to liven up the space with stunning arrangements. I love all affairs, large scale and small scale, they all bring an incredible amount of love to a person's life.

Congratulations once again to these parents who I'm sure are doing wonderfully as such!
