Consider the Montreal Botanical Gardens for your Montreal Engagement Photography. It’s a great choice any time of the year – especially in the winter time. There are many greenhouses to enjoy in the winter and countless gardens to choose from in the summer.
These photos were taken in late spring in the fields of lilacs. The flowering trees made for a perfect backdrop for this romantic spring engagement photography session.
What is the best time for an engagement photography session?
Late afternoon or early morning is the best time for an engagement photography shoot. For the Botanical Gardens, the best time would be sometime early morning (between 9am and 10am). It’s the quietest time in the gardens and the light is softer so you can shoot more freely in all the different gardens. In the wintertime, the greenhouses get very busy, so I would also recommend an early morning shoot time.
What to wear for your engagement photo session?
I often asked what people should wear for their engagement photo session. I suggest a “business casual” look for an engagement shoot. Of course you should wear whatever you like and feel comfortable in. But dressing up makes the photos a little more polished and classic. This is also an excellent time for a future bride to test out her bridal make-up. Getting a make-up trial done for an engagement shoot gives a good idea of what the make-up will look like in your wedding photos. It’s “win-win” because you will have beautiful make-up for the engagement shoot as a bonus.
I also recommend bringing a second outfit, so you can change the look of your photos.All photos by Kate Fellerath Photography.
