Chelsea + Steven | Married

I met with Chelsea and Steven during one of the first storms we had this winter. In just a few short months they would be getting married in a small and perfectly intimate ceremony; all within a brick and wood beamed loft overlooking St. Paul street.

A stones throw away is where we found a quiet street to gather the bridal party in, it's not every corner of Old Montreal we can find peace and quiet, but we managed. Chelsea was adamant about finding somewhere much more private to take photos with Steven. The Quai de l'Horloge offered us that, I would often walk ahead or scout the location, noticing that they were taking those brief quiet moments to themselves which every couple should try to find on their wedding day.

The two of them have been together for over a decade; you can imagine how anticipated this day was for them and their closest people.

Congratulations, and thank you Chelsea + Steven for having me take part!

Special thanks to John Koo who helped me out!

Leanne + Taymaz | Married

You may remember Leanne + Taymaz won last year's engagement shoot during my winter contest, I was so thrilled that they were exactly as lovely all of their family and friends had said they were (everyone who had entered their names). I was even happier to photograph their wedding day - at the stunning la Gare Viger; a huge effort by so many talented wedding vendors.

It was not what I would call a normal day, with Hurricane Harvey having reached us bringing buckets of rain. But it's as I tell all of my brides and grooms in the event of a wet day, there are always options; beautiful photography can be born in low light which we may not have used otherwise. The main thing is to remember why you're all there. If rain bothered L+T, I did not notice it even for a second. The venue did not disappoint, the place was decked floor to ceiling in gorgeousness.

I saw moving moments between their friends and family that only a wedding can bring out in people. It was a pleasure to be present for it! Thank you endlessly L+T for a beautiful day!

Special thanks to Bianca Diorio for the help shooting with me!

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!
