Stephanie & Hugo | Engagement
Stephanie & Hugo | Engagement When Stephanie & Hugo first contacted us to inquire about our packages, they invited us over to their place for brunch. Hugo insisted to make us some fresh arepa, a dish from his country in Venezuela. One thing everyone always say is “never say no to a client” and we love arepa so of course, there is no way we were going to decline the invitation. If you know Dewey and I, you know that good food makes us very happy. To be honest, we have made dinner and invited people over our place many many times, but rarely has anyone took their time to make us food. We chatted and laughed over delicious food and had a great time. Hands down, this was the best meet and greet with a couple ever, because beside the great food, we also gain new friends. -Kim
Mitwa & Ralph | Montreal Engagement
Mitwa & Ralph | Montreal Engagement From the bride to be: Back in November of 2014, although the temperature was about -20° C we were “casually” found to be in a secluded park overlooking the Saint Lawrence River to a breath taking view of Montreal. This was my first and Ralph’s second visit to Montreal and we wanted to make the most out of it and that he did! This was no casual visit. While sitting on a bench and enjoying the view he slowly pulled out his phone, read a very sweet poem he had written for me and then popped the question! There I was with a ring on my finger and officially engaged to my fiancé. We met the first time earlier that year in Hamilton, Ontario when Ralph had driven down from his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio for the Easter weekend. We started dating soon after and didn’t take much time to realise that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with each other. And here we are now, back in Montreal for our engagement shoot. We had such a blast with our photographer Dewey, who made us feel totally comfortable. We now look […]
Catherine & Jacob | Montreal Wedding
Catherine & Jacob | Montreal Wedding The parents of the bride flew all the way from their tropical warm paradise in Bolivia to the cold snowy winter in Montreal. The bride chose their wedding day to be in the middle of December, so their parents can have a white Christmas, which they haven’t had for 40 years! Catherine, with the help of her mom, confected almost every little detail themselves. From the bouquet, the centrepieces, the wedding favours, the details added to the bride’s shoes, the invitations, the sweet/candy table… sounds like a big stressful job? Not so much for Catherine, as she is an event planner by profession. The entire day was relaxing and memorable. Catherine and Jacob are very simple people. They do not let things stress them and started their day pretty late. They did not want a bridal party and Catherine did not want her makeup and hair done. They opted to be as natural and organic as it can be. The entire day was happening at the beautiful St-Martin Hotel & Suites. Catherine got ready with her mom in their suite and Jacob with his best friend and Catherine’s dad. The ceremony and reception was […]
Quyen & Toan | Montreal Wedding
Quyen & Toan | Montreal wedding Whenever we have a couple who wants to book us for a Montreal wedding, we get really excited. Montreal is always a dear place to our heart as we both grew up there and getting to take pictures of our bride and groom in our beautiful hometown feels very special to us. After the great Engagement Session with this couple in Toronto, we know that we were going to have a lot of fun on their wedding day. Thank you Quyen & Toan for being brave enough to conquer the cold Montreal weather, allowing us to capture these beautiful pictures.   Flower: SKY Fleur | Church: Église Notre-Dame du Très-Saint-Rosaire | Reception Venue: Le Cristal Chinois | Formal Shoot Location: Old Port of Montreal, World Trade Centre Montréal, Palais des congrès de Montréal
Catherine & Jacob | Engagement in Old Port Montreal
Last weekend, we drove 570 km to Montreal to shoot Catherine & Jacob’s engagement session in the beautiful Old Port. But let’s be honest, any occasion for us to pay a visit to our hometown is a delightful getaway. Who can resist the food, the summer festivals, the joie de vivre of our French Canadian heritage and of course, our family and friends. Catherine & Jacob are Montrealers who recently moved to Ottawa. Therefore, when we asked them if they wanted to do their engagement shoot in Ottawa or Montreal, the final verdict was made without any hesitation. It is the place where they met, it is where it all started. The couple has been together for the longest time and have finally decided to get married this winter. These two crazy love birds brought lots of energy and laughter to the photoshoot. I had to stop in the middle of the shoot a couple of times because their laugh was so contagious that it was nearly impossible to hold my camera steady. They chose the Old Port because of its European flair. Its historic buildings and charming brick roads is what sets Montreal apart from other cities in Canada. […]
Appalaches
Dewey and I drove up to Montreal to attend the album launch concert from my good old friend Sebastien Legault’s band, Appalaches at the L’Hémisphère Gauche bar. Appalaches is a post-rock band from Montreal with 4 members who have enough energy to shake the whole block down. “Mòn” is the band’s very first album; a precious melodious and strong album that you will quickly fall in love with, packaged in a beautiful album designed by Sebastien himself. Did I forget to mention that Sebastien is also a renowned creative director/graphic designer too? (please see link below for his work). Yes, all of the nice designs for the band is from him. Appalaches warned us all that they will play loud and they surely delivered! Great show, awesome music, high energy and lovely crowd. Congrats Appalaches for a successful launch!
