Montreal engagement photos: Old Montreal and Champ-de-Mars metro station

CouplesWith 0 comments

Laura and Nicholas are a sweet couple I first met at the Marions-Nous bridal show in January. I’m already looking forward to shooting their wedding next summer. But in the meantime, here are some adorable photos from their engagement session in the Old Port.

I’m in Old Montreal a lot for portrait sessions because it’s one of the most picturesque spots in the city of Montreal. But for Laura and Nicholas, the waterfront area and the canals hold a special significance. Laura works for Parks Canada, writing communications on the historic canals and her office is located right in the Old Port.

Laura and Nicholas are the cutest! They had a lot of fun during the shoot in their quiet way and made my job easy by smiling, looking at each other, laughing and generally being in love! :)

I chose to meet up with Laura and Nicholas at Champ-de-Mars metro station, since I wanted to explore some new photo locations in the eastern end of the Old Port area, in a more modern urban setting. Then, we headed west all the way through Old Montreal, ending up our photo session at the Peel Basin, with its view of the Farine Five Roses sign, a Montreal landmark.

Now the “Love me, love me, say that you love me” song is stuck in my head. :)
