Une session dans un sous-bois près de chez Marc-André, ça valait la peine. Beaucoup de couleurs chaudes, de décors verts envahissants sous un bleu d’infini et d’une nature luxuriante qu’on oublie trop souvent.
Note: L’ajout de textures photographiques comme le grain a été volontaire. Je voulais par là rapprocher davantage le spectateur avec l’histoire que je met en scène. Aussi, les oppositions entre clair/foncé et orange/bleu créent des harmonies et des contrastes intéressants qui sont utilisés comme métaphore dans un environnement humain, contraire et divergent, où l’homme vit dans ses défauts comme dans ses qualités.
Remember that wedding I was talking about in the last post? Here is Josée, a wonderful and such funny, successful woman.
Then Mom came see Josée. What a touching moment it was. (Je dois avouer que la mère était plus stressée que la fille!)
I followed the bride to Vicky’s house, her host for the day but also the woman who took care of everyone’s hair before.
Vicky’s dog was also excited. With around twenty something gals in the house, the atmosphere was so palpable yet serene.
What an amazing smile of hers. She looks so graceful, fully prepared, 100% committed.
Brother & sister met.
Snap some photos of the girls.
Such an original groom: love the fact that the reds were matching and that he wore such an impressive outift next to her amazing wedding dress.
I mean, what’s better than an eco-friendly, homemade and beautiful wedding? (L’idée des sapins à planter ça change tellement. Ça change tellement pour le mieux!)
They made this sculptor/table to hold their cupcakes!
Photographic business and wonderful ideas were held by few friends/photographers who acted like paparazzi. Indeed, fun. (Michelle, ta gloire de photographe! )
Loved the warmth and the convenience at former sugar shack Au Pied de la Colline!
So much romance and laughs at the same time! Thanks it didn’t rain too long.
Charles playing it cool.
One of my favourites, because of its environmental link to the newly weds.
Yummy cake! (Oui, du gâteau. Et aussi des cupcakes!)
Charles made each and every cupcake. With a little help from some others, he managed to get through all of these while Josée was the main wedding planner.
Then came the first dance. “Kiss from a rose”, by Seal, such a lovely, lovely song.
That’s it for now. (Did I mention the cupcakes were amazingly yummy or am I repeating again & again?)
Thanks for sharing such lovely moments with me, again. Bonne chance à vous deux! : )
Alexandra being my first model (but also high school friend and the premium judge of my early photos) last year when I changed equipment, she wanted to have some photos of her and her boyfriend, Charles. Initially, we planned something in Montreal but we’ll maybe keep that for later, when I’ll project something for Alexandra alone. So we ended up in some secret wooded area of mine.
On the day of the shooting (the 24th of July), spontaneously, we planned something near my area. We were looking for something romantic, intimate, without being cheesy or too serious. Doesn’t she just look bubbly and adorable on these ones?
My very own favourites.
Passed in front some dangerous animals! (Thanks for noticing it was dead, Charles…)
Gorgeous shot of Alexandra, dramatizing all her sense of humour. And, oh, how can you look over the classy Charles below?
Several weeks ago, I showed you this.
Finally, I’m showing you the outcome of the photo shoot I had with Seven Sound I had back in April. After chatting a while about the concept and what their style was, the atmosphere they were looking for, I brought them in a wooded area, not far from the train station I know. Textures and black and white photos were suggested and accepted with a lot of enthusiasm from me.
Let’s pretend you’re a model on this one, Nicolas.
They brought their music instruments too. Heavy things.
The first one to show to little individuals shots in front of the two others! And since I wasn’t able to choose between colours and black and white…
Great job on having that faithful expression we were looking after, Felix.
Love how the guitar just enhance the significance of the image itself.
I can just easily imagine that as a cover for Seven Sound.
They are such great friends together. A lot of talks, smiling and of course laughing throughout this session.
Because I wanted industrial shots, I ended up asking them to lay down in some construction pipes.
Some LOL action making its way.
Serious business afterwards.
What a great, happy young men you are, Nic.
Here are some other interesting photos of the band but maybe just less official than the other ones….
Hope you enjoy that long entry.
Began digging through the photo shoot I did with Seven Sound, near a station in Ste-Rose. This must be one of my favourites.
Love the fact that they are friends, they are casual and have a great personality. More to show soon.
Next, a preview from my trip from Old Quebec. What a wonderful city! Didn’t have any problems; people were full of enthusiasm and pass three great days in company of my parents.
Random people walking at sunset.
Some old school houses.
The man who made the design of the National Assembly of Québec.
Horses in street.
François De Laval, at some exhibitions in museums.
This one was funny.
Me stalking people.
Inside the National Assembly of Québec.
Bathrooms in some pretty and casual little cafe.
Finally, some photos taken in Montreal with friends. (More in next post.)
I love these kind of details.
Marie-Ève, walking. (Actually, she’s photogenic.)
Walking in random streets in Old Montreal.
Yes, the wall is absolutely beautiful.
Some facebook photo.
Black and white goodies.
