Serena +Jeremy – Montreal engagement session in le Plateau

Another great engagement session in Montreal. We started in the lovely and famous Parc Lafontaine. Jeremy hates the camera and Serena is easy to make laugh and really put Jeremy at ease. He doesn’t like to be the center of attention. SO I simply told him that he wasn’t, Serena was and he was simply Serena’s favourite accessory. These tow love birds are getting married on August 30th in Ottawa and if the wedding goes like the E-session, we should a have load of fun.

Isabel + Samuel – An intimate and emotional wedding at Parc Jean Drapeau.

A fabulous wedding on this friday July 11th 2014. The ceremony and wedding reception were taking place at Pavillon de la Jamaïque at Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal.  I was present to cover their fantastic ceremony and the base of a weeping willow tree. The ceremony was touching and unique. Even their 2 kids prepared a surprise speech for them. I have now known Isabel for about 5 years since I photograph many events for Infopresse but I have grown to know her real intimate, emotional and people loving personality on her wedding day. Samuel is a frenchman that came to Montreal on a short trip plan (like every other french person in Montreal) and never left since this lady stole is heart over 11 years ago. Their fantastic love story brought them 2 very cute and fun children. It was an honour to capture your wedding day and share tears of joy with you! I hope Samuel can share this with family members that couldn’t come. Cheers and Congratulations! Photography by Montreal wedding photographer Sébastien D’Amour

Annie + Nick wedding in Gatineau – We cried and laughed.

I’ve known Nick since 1997. He’s a great man that loves life, golf and his wife! He called me up to ask if I was interested in capturing the photographs of his 2014 Gatineau wedding. Of course, I agreed. Then I met Annie. This shy, happy go lucky, fun and emotional woman. Photographing their wedding was a treat. People cried, people laughed, people had fun and genuinely enjoyed themselves.

When I got to Annie’s parents home in Gatineau, I started to capture some details about her dress, their rings and more. I could see that she was a little stressed. Once she got dress, she told me she didn’t want to cry anymore since she cried enough in the morning. Guess what, I didn’t listen hahahaha. I got her dad to come in to see his fabulous princess. Emotions flared up and they had a genuine daughter-father moment which made me think of the day my daughter will get married. Of course, I joined them in the crying…lol

We then proceeded to the first look at the National Gallery of Canada. I had envision the location of their first look after capturing an engagement session at the Gallery. The artful images came out perfect. We then walked to the Fairmount Chateau Laurier in Ottawa to have a more european look at the images. I found that their attire would fit in nicely in such a feel and look.

The family then joined us for the family and group pictures. We still cried and laughed a little.

Annie and Nick got hitched at the Église Saint-François-de-Sales in Gatineau. We still cried and laughed a little.

I wish you two love birds the best and keep your fun, loving and genuine personalities. It was a real treat.

BTW, the weather was once again awesome!

Catherine + JF – an urban Montreal engagement session

Jf and Cath wanted a total variation from the look of their wedding that will be on August 16th 2014 in the Charlevoix area. Their wedding will be held in the forest at a family members residence. So we went in the old Montreal to capture some fun, romantic, urban photographs. They requested one image to be captured at sunset with the Montreal skyline in the background.

I found a couple of areas where some funky and bright colours brought some energy to the scene. They laughed and goofed most of the time but want can you do when love and fun join together like these two.

Cheers and let’s rock you wedding in August!!! Can’t wait.

CIBC Soccer Nation event in Montreal!

So today, yes on a saturday, I was not capturing unique and fabulous wedding images. I was actually covering the CIBC soccer nation event that was held in Montreal. The event revolves around a huge viewing screen that was setup outside in the beautiful sun.

The first game that was showcased was Brazil VS Chile! The brazil fans came out strong for the gathering. The game was exciting and stressful. Great soccer to watch. You’ll see in my photographs the various emotions that fans lived today during the game.

Fans could also entertain themselves during half time at a playstation Fifa 2014 section. They could also get free face painting. They could enter a challenge to win a Brazuca.
