J’aime l’algèbre. Oui, j’aime ça. Je suis prof de maths de formation. J’aime l’algèbre quand en plus ça donne ceci comme résultat: M + K = A. Soit: [M: Marjolaine, K: Keven, A: Alyce].
Ces images sont le résultat de 3 types d’équations: celles du premier degré, celles au carré puis, finalement, à la puissance de 3.
Quel privilège que de photographier ces 2 variables (maintenant 3) depuis les 3 dernières années, de leurs fiançailles, au mariage, à la grossesse jusqu’à la photographie de leur famille.
Ce qui est le plus beau, selon moi, est le fait qu’il la fait encore rire. Aux éclats.
This young woman and I go back. Way back. So far back, she may not remember me from that time. Late 1990s in fact. She was a smart, polite and vivacious teenager with a positive attitude. Her mother was a source of motivation for me at the local gym; she had a holistic approach to fitness and well-being. When I photographed J & X, in Montreal, a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help but be reminded of her mother’s smile and positive energy in the images.
I also wasn’t surprised to see that she had chosen a wonderful life partner. How could she choose otherwise?!I feel blessed: I witness beautiful moments in couples’ lives and have the pleasure of documenting them. Here are a few precious images announcing their big day to come in September.
So they took me out to historical Perth, Ontario, about an hour away from Ottawa. With my GPS set properly I made it there ahead of time. I’m new to the province and am falling in love with rural Ontario. The places I get to discover during my travels to photograph couples, babies, bellies and families are exciting and eye opening. I feel like Wayne Rodstad from On the Road Again. 🙂 Back to the photo shoot…
Historical Perth, Ontario.
This couple has an eye for photography and came prepared with inspirational images and a mood board to our first meeting. So when we took advantage of the first warm day of Spring to shoot this engagement session, I knew we were in for a treat. It was the greatest. We worked together to get the vision right. The light was a-we-some. Everywhere we went it was nirvana. The light was direct and contrasty at times or soft and diffused at other moments and always perfectly placed. Then we had a short period of time to play with awesome natural backlight. It felt like I was playing with clay and got to do what I wanted. I think I may have heard the heavens signing… Seriously, in my life as a photographer, it is all about great light and great people. Here, I had both!
Quel bonheur pour mes yeux! Les couleurs, le paysage et les visages…. Quelques images de la session de photographie de fiançailles également appelée session photo pré-mariage. Ces deux-là diront oui en août prochain lors de leur mariage à St-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
PS: Je lui ai demandé s’il était tombé amoureux de ses yeux verts en premier. Il n’a rien dit mais il a sourit….
