KAYLIE | Bachelorette

I’ve known Kaylie for about 10 years, I went to college with her big sister who I’ve stayed friends with since. She gave me the opportunity to shoot her engagement last fall which was my first paid photography job that I was in control of. I spent Kaylie’s bachelorette day with her and her friends and family. We did a small photoshoot in old Montreal in the same spot where we did her engagement shoot.  Then I followed them to a tapas & drink making class and then to the hotel and finally out to a night club. It was a fun experience to work with a large group of women and to mix portraits with some photojournalism.

They were a pleasure to work with.

MONTREAL / 8

One of my favourite shots from a photo walk with friends this week. You can’t tell at first glance but that horizontal line of light on the left side is actually from the train passing through. Pretty neat, right? It’s definitely handy to have friends who will let you borrow their lenses. I love going out and taking pictures just for the sake of taking pictures and learning.

Taken with a 16-35 mm lens and an 8 second shutter speed. 

CHICAGO / 2

Just a few more photos of my recent trip to Chicago. Other than playing tourist by visiting the pier and the architectural tour, we spent most of the weekend talking, eating and drinking. We visited the Randolph Market, some great restaurants whose names I’ve forgotten and just took it easy walking around the city with our own personal tour guide.

I can’t wait to visit Chicago again, if only to try every restaurant and bar the city has to offer. I am starving just looking at the above food photos.

I had the pleasure of being a tourist in Chicago at the end of June while visiting some amazing friends. The long weekend was a good mix of catching up over a glass of wine or whiskey and sight seeing + going out to quaint restaurants and cafes. I have a few more photos to share from the trip which I will post next time. Most of the photos above are from the Architectural boat tour at the pier. I highly recommend it, very beautiful and educational.

MONTREAL / 5

Montreal loves any excuse to shut down a street and we Montrealers love walking down the middle of the street without getting hit by a car (though we already jaywalk any chance we get). Two weekends in a row most of the St Laurent Boulevard – aka the Main – was closed for the sidewalk sale and we got to soak in the sun while spending money and eating street food & mango on a stick. Summer in Montreal just can’t be beat.
