Un aperçu de mon shoot mode avec la blogueuse et instagrameuse Gabrielle alias Dentelle & Fleurs. Vous pouvez voir ce shoot sur son blog et avoir tous les détails de sa tenue. On est allées à la serre de Westmount pour le shoot, un endroit merveilleux où on pourrait passer des heures.
So, I have been wanted to write this review for a very long time. But you know that life is busy and you don’t always have the time to all the things written on your to do list. Anyway, I received my new camera bag at the beginning of wedding season, and I must say I was thrilled to change my bag. I was using a Lowepro backpack but at the end of the last wedding season, I could not stand this bag anymore. Too heavy, not practical while shooting weddings (but very practical for traveling), and I looked like a 15 year old girl with a backpack bigger than her!
So, needless to say that when I received my brand new Epiphanie bag – the London backpack model, it felt like Christmas in July! The timing was perfect and I was able to test this new bag during the entire wedding season.
So, here is the gear I can fit in this bag:
- one Nikon D3s
- one Nikon D700
- one Nikkor 35mm 1.4
- one Nikkor 85mm 1.8
- one Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art
- one SB-900 flash
- extra batteries, charger, CF cards…
- my wallet, phone, keys, etc.
What I LOVE about this bag:
- it stands when I leave it on the floor, it does not fall risking to have all my gear rolling all over the place
- the leather is very good quality
- lots and lots of pockets
- it does not make me look like I am going on a trek or something
- classy and practical
I asked my good friend Genevieve to take some pics of me during a session. I love the look of the bag and how practical it is! Weddings, photo sessions… I bring it everywhere, for all kind of assignments and I love the idea that it does not look like a camera bag. What do you think?
Valerie and Fred… they had me at hello. Their smile, their laugh, their kindness, their good spirit and their energy got me right away. We shot their engagement session in Rosemont, in Montreal, and we were supposed to take pictures but I think we probably spent the entire time talking and laughing. But I was able to get some nice shots of them. Well, they photograph well, so it was pretty easy to get some shots between two conversations about travels and life.
Sanam and Angelo got married in March in Montreal. Yes I know I need to catch up on my blog posts schedule.
Sanam is Iranian and Angelo is Greek. Can you imagine the amazing wedding they had? Their ceremony was a mix of Greek and Iranian traditions, and of course their reception was full of crazy dances and high energy.
They are – to me – the perfect couple. Smart, nice, good-looking, hard-working, devoted to their family, friendly, fun… I could go on and on and on. I must say their love for each other is a blessing to capture. So easy, so simple, they were definitely made for each other. You probably remember them from their engagement session.
Here is a glimpse at their wedding pictures. I could not limit myself, so sorry for the long post.
Testing new things…
I love that this image looks so timeless.
