Engagement Shoot In Montreal

the kids' expressions really make this shot

Phone snapshots are convenient and all that, but they don’t hold a candle to what an SLR can do. Here are four of my favourite photos from the engagement shoot in Montreal a few weeks ago. We went all out with locations:

Vieux-Port (Old Port)
Musée des beaux-arts (Museum of Fine Arts)
McGill University
Mont-Royal (Mount Royal)
Jardin botanique (Botanical Gardens)

Why do an engagement shoot? Because…

Happy Canada Day!

I made it back from Montreal with just minutes left in Canada Day, but here’s a maple-leaf-themed preview from my e-shoot there on Sunday. Also got some quality time with friends in the city, which made it a stellar weekend all ’round!

Ice Ice Baby


I have just enough brain power left to post one photo with a few words (most of today was spent on the Turning 40 Series), so I chose this variation I made from Kim and Greg’s engagement shoot in Ottawa earlier this month. (Here’s the original.) When I shot the photo I saw the version above in my mind first, but I zoomed back and shot wider so I could make variations in post.

With all this frigid winter weather we’ve been having lately, I thought of the happy side to winter — ice skating! — and the title came to mind. If you’re of my generation, you will know from whence it came the first time around, pre-YouTube.
