E-Session: Magalie and Vincent
Wedding season has just started with a bang, and what a great start it was!Â We just completed our first engagement session of the year with our lovely couple, Magalie and Vincent.
It was a very interesting story as to how she even found us… Magalie saw a photo we took on her friendâ€™s facebook page and she fell in love with our style enough to want to hire us as her wedding photographers right then and there. The funny part of the story is that we weren’t even her friendâ€™s wedding photographers, I just happened to be standing in front of the hotel where her friend was exiting right after her wedding party had ended. It was sheer luck that I was at the Old Port on that evening doing one of my impromptu outings and just playing and taking pictures ofÂ Montreal’s sights and people when I saw the couple come out of their taxi, complete with wedding attire.Â I couldn’t resist asking to take a photograph of them.Â They permitted me to take theÂ photo and in gratitude, I sent a copy of it to them.Â She liked it so much that sheÂ placed the photo we took on her facebook page and the rest is history.
Initially, we planned on taking the couple to an alluring wooded area near-by, but when Jerry and I went on our scouting mission to check things out earlier that afternoon, we passed by the local fire-station and decided this would be a great starting location.Â After quickly stopping in and asking, we received permission and were given pretty much free reign to shoot anywhere at their station. Our special thanks to the gentlemen at this fire-station, as they were more than happy to open their doors to us and our couple, and we really appreciated it.
Ironically, we later found out that Vincent loved this location,Â because earlier in his life he worked as a fire fighter back when heÂ still lived in Paris, France.
A very fun session with a fantastic and brave couple whoÂ took on the veryÂ chilly eveningÂ in light clothing and handled it like troopers.Â Thank-you so much, Magalie and Vincent, you guys were awesome!!
