Montreal Engagement Part 1: Colourful graffiti art at Champ Libre

CouplesWith 5 comments

As a engagement photographer, I’m always looking for new backdrops and spaces that inspire creativity and playfulness.

A colourful Instagram post by Vincent Brillant clued me in to an interesting new location for engagement photos.

After some investigative Googling, I found out this new colourful space is called Champ Libre. It’s an artistic collaboration between Sid Lee, LNDMRK and Maser, an internationally-known graffiti artist.

Located near the intersection of Autoroutes 15 and 40, the building is not in an easy place to access. But it’s visible from the highway, bringing a splash of bright colours to an otherwise drab, industrial neighbourhood.

This disused tea factory is slated to be torn down to make way for the new Royalmount mega-mall project. In the meantime, it has a fresh new life as an ephemeral art project. Way to go out with a bang and not a whimper!

I was delighted by this space and so eager to use it as a creative space for some portraits. Just then, we were planning Melanie and Jonathan’s engagement photo session. Perfect timing! I suggested exploring this space for part of their session and they were up for it!

We met there on a very chilly and windy fall day and we had a blast taking some creative photos.

Melanie and Jonathan are just two quirky peeps that fell in love and are happy to own their weirdness. I love it! They were so smiley during the entire shoot!

I hope you enjoy these graffiti engagement photos as much as I did!

And if you want some creative couple’s photos to celebrate your quirky love, please send me an email at info@esthergibbons.com! :)
