I really wish I had more weddings in the Montreal West Island! Last weekend, I photographed Amanda and Jordan at the Fritz Community Centre in Baie d’Urfe, right by the water and the Lakeshore road, a perfect spot for the two nature lovers. I met Amanda over 5 years ago during a biology field course in Barbados. (Easily the best course I took during my time at McGill - we spent 2 weeks snorkelling, chasing schools of fish, and eating delicious bajan food.) In my about page, I talk about how important my biology field courses were to my growth as a photographer. I’ve always felt like I owed something to my friends who tolerated me and my camera during those times, so I was extremely honoured when Amanda asked me to photograph her wedding.
Our day began in Beaconsfield with Jordan, his best man Matt, and “the two ladies” (Mimi & Lucy, the dogs). Like it is in most weddings, the guys got ready in just a few minutes, and with a few hours to spare before the ceremony, they had some time to relax.
Meanwhile, Amanda was getting ready at the Fritz Community Centre, where the ceremony and reception were going to be held. I love weddings with few locations since we don’t need to scramble from one location to the next or worry about parking and traffic. Amanda was getting ready just one staircase away from where the ceremony was held, underneath a big silver maple in a field of grass.
We didn’t need to go very far to find beautiful spots to photograph the newlyweds in!
Thank you Amanda and Jordan for letting us share this big day with you guys. Can’t wait to share the rest of the photos. :)
