i had no inspiration for the title of this article, so i decided to call it « bons baisers de Montréal ».  in english, it’s « kisses from Montreal ».  i think it is romantic. this is what comes to my mind when i think of this adorable couple. miranda and michele.

miranda contacted me a few months ago by email. she was planning her vacation in montreal and wanted to book a session with me.  i rarely got inquiries for this type of shoots, so i was very excited to meet them.  i am always nervous before a photo session when i did not meet the couple before.  i am always wondering if i will be able to make them comfortable, if they will be up to follow my crazy ideas, if my jokes will make them laugh, if they will like the photos afterwards… so many questions go through my mind before the session.

and then, when i saw them arriving, when i saw their smile, and how happy they looked, i know we were going to have a great session.  the moment we said hello, i knew we would have a fun photo session.

these two are so sweet together.  i loved their humour, their laugh, and their authenticity.  plus, they agreed to do whatever i wanted to do for the photo session.  from running to seating in front of the house of complete strangers, they were up to anything.  we found the cutest little street in old montreal, far from the crazy crowd of tourists.  it was perfect.

Anne-Marie and Daniel got married in Montreal, last September. It was a hot and beautiful sunny day. Anne-Marie is the kind of radiant person who just lights up a room with her smile, as you can see it in the photos. And Daniel has this kind of calm confidence that makes you feel comfortable right away. It was fun meeting them, it was fun photographing them for their engagement shoot, so I knew their wedding will be easy-peasy. And when I say « easy peasy », I mean it in a very positive way, like photographing a wedding which is going very smoothly and surrounded by only nice, charming and happy people. You just have to look at the pictures of the guests to see it.

When I was in France last June, I had the pleasure to do a photo session for my friend Audrey and her adorable little family. I met Audrey 11 years ago when I was an intern in a music company in Paris. We became friends right away and we bonded over insane deadlines (we were unpaid interns doing a real job as jurists, writing contracts and dealing with other music companies), a crazy boss and lots of fun dance parties. I then left Paris and became a photographer but we stayed friends and kept in touch on Facebook.

I was so happy when Audrey told me she wanted to hire me to document her little family. It was a real pleasure to spend some time with her, her partner Mister B., little A. and of course Bruce Lee, the cat who wanted to pose for me. Aren’t they the perfect little stylish Parisian family?

I wrote something on Facebook about the feeling of having two parts of my life reunited.

« Wanna know the story behind this photo? I could entitle this « when two parts of my life finally meet, feeling grateful and happy ». This beautiful mama was my colleague when I was a lawyer intern in a music company back in 2004. This internship is one of my best memories as a law student and I remember lots of laughters, fun and great parties while working with this lady. Eleven years later (geez, time flies!), I was happy to photograph her cute little family in Paris during my last stay.
To say that I am happy and honored to be able to create memories for people who have been in my life for so many years is an understatement. »

It does not get better than this.

I continue my schedule of posts about 2014 weddings with the wedding of Valerie and Fred in Old Montreal, at Hotel Place d’Armes.

You might remember them from their engagement session in Rosemont. I loved doing this session because they are so in love and caring for each other. Well, let’s said their wedding day was nothing but beautiful and incredibly touching. From the intimate ceremony to the heartfelt speeches during dinner, it was amazing to see all the guests praising Valerie and Fred and showing them nothing but pure and dedicated love. It was a small wedding but so full of love… and laughter. Lots of laughter. Actually I don’t think I never seen a bride and groom having so much fun.

After their wedding, Valerie and Fred spend 3 months in Asia. How amazing is that?! I wish they took me with them. I heard it’s a new trend: to hire a professional photographer for your holidays and travels. I’m in! Next time, guys. ;)

Here’s Val and Fred’s wedding. It’s all about love… and laughter.

Last June, just after coming back from France, I photographed the engagement party of Cynthia and Leonard at the Forest and Stream Club in Dorval.

This place is gorgeous but it was raining a lot this day. However, the rain did not ruin the happiness and joy of the newly engaged couple. Cynthia is so sweet, gorgeous and kind, i loved her right away. Leonard is a true gentleman, you know like the ones in the movies, always taking care of everyone with a big smile and a big heart.

It was lovely to photograph their engagement party and I wish them a gorgeous wedding in 2016. Congratulations Cynthia and Leonard!
