Sarah and Helene: A Mile End Engagement Session

These girls are awesome roller derby loving chicks. I have actually seen Sarah at some roller derby events without knowing it. She is serious when it comes to her games but outside of the arena, Sarah is a jokester, always pulling faces and making hilarious suggestions. I actually remember her finding random masks during our walk and bringing them along for photos. Helene is super cool and calm, I guess you would have to be around Sarah the prankster.

The girls had their very first date in the Mile End, so this area means a lot to them. With the Arena near by they spend a lot of time there. During our shoot, we made it our business to stop by Tammy's flower shop. Last year Tammy's shop had a devastating fire and the locals all pitched in and helped her rebuild in every way they could. Her shop is iconic on Rue Bernard with bird cages and flowers hanging from every inch of space.

These girls are tying the knot at the fabulous Fiddler Lake resort at the end of August. I cannot wait for it. It is going to be an amazing location with two beautiful girls. It could not be more perfect if we tried.

Sarah and Bryan: An Engagement stroll through the Plateau

Guys I am so looking forward to your wedding this weekend. Sarah and Bryan, you are so wonderful. Watching you two interact and make each other giggle for me was such a joy. You are so easy going and up for just about anything. I love how Bryan makes Sarah feel that she is the only girl in the room.

We arranged to meet up and start the shoot in their backyard which during the summer months is in full burst of green. I just so happened to get introduced to Sarah's mom who had popped up from the states for her wedding shower weekend and I am excited to snap photos of her in a few days.

Our last set was taken in one of my favourite ruelle's in Montreal. I call it little Switzerland, because it basically looks like chalet after chalet. Sarah and Bryan had never walked through this ruelle before even though it was only a few blocks from their house. I am so glad to have introduced you to it and hopefully you guys will take strolls through it during the summer months as a married couple.
