Engagement photography is a great way to get to know your photographer.
It’s also a great way for your photographer to get to know you! During an engagement session, I can get a great sense of what the couple likes in terms of style and poses.
Use the photos from your Engagement shoot for …
These photos can be used for your Save the Date” cards. They can also be used for your guest book at the wedding. They can also be a fun way to add some personality to your Wedding Table Number cards.
Engagement Photography to test out your bridal make-up
Consider doing a make-up trial on the day of your Engagement Photo Session. Wedding make-up should look natural but create even skin tones and brighten your complexion. If you are looking for a great Montreal Wedding Make-up Artist, I highly recommend Joffrey Dumas (Joffrey@aei.ca 514-730-9944)
Why not get awesome photos to document your life?
You will always remember the year leading up to your wedding and it’s great to have professional photos to record that unique time in your life.

Best Locations for Engagement photography in Montreal
Engagement Photography in Old Montreal or “Old Port“
Old Montreal is a perfect place for Engagement Photography. There are lots of quiet cobble stone streets and stunning architecture. There is beautiful light at any time of the year. There are also great covered locations to shoot in the rain. You can also take photos near the Old Port area and the train tracks nearby. Old Montreal is a perfect backdrop for your Engagement Photos. This is the location where I do the most Engagment Photography in Montreal.
Engagement Photography at Mount Royal Park
This is also a fantastic location for Engagement Photos at any time of the year. I love the changing seasons and the small quiet wooded paths. The Montreal Lookout has a view of the whole city and the St-Lawrence River, The Chalet at the top of the mountain is an architectural gem inside and out.
Engagement Photography at the Atwater Market or Jean Talon Market
A market is a great place for Engagement Photography in Montreal. It is full of colour, full of life and a very unique location for photography. If you want something different, this is a great choice!
Engagement Photography on the train train tracks in St-Henry
Get urban, dynamic engagement photos in this edgy and contemporary location. You can use the old Buildings as a backdrop and walk along the tracks. But be careful: this is a train route, so don’t be surprised if trains pass by during the shoot.
Engagement Photography at Steward Hall
Steward Hall in Dorval is a fantastic choice for Engagement or Wedding Photography. There is beautiful landscaping and a view of the St-Lawrence river. Life is made simpler by the parking lot on site.
Engagement Photography at the Orange Julep
The Orange Julep is an iconic landmark and has been part of the Montreal landscape for 50 years. Any resident of Montreal will know it. It’s a fun and playful location for an engagement shoot. The bright orange dome in the background adds a graphic punch to the photos. And as a bonus, you can stay and have a great poutine and orange julep after the shoot!
Anywhere that is special or meaningful to you
Best location of all is anywhere that is meaningful to you. I love to draw on the personal connection people have with certain parks or locations that are important to them. This will make your engagement photos all the more special in years to come. As important as the background is to the photos, you are the central focus, so pick a location that best suits you and I will always be able to come away with beautiful and artistic imagery.
