58 : Elizabeth & Jakob

In a spontaneous moment, Elizabeth grabs Jakob's hand and pulls him down a path. The hand is familiar, but the path is not. Elizabeth and Jakob have been together for years now, but it's their very first visit to Montréal together.

Our goal: capture some whimsical and puzzling double exposures of this cute couple, all in-camera.

47 : Davis and Tom

Meeting eligible cuties in 2017 is challenging. Finding effective ways to engage with them is even trickier. Davis and Tom first intersected on Instagram, a true success story for “How to Pick up a Cutie on Social Media”. Come for a walk around Hintonburg, the Ottawa neighbourhood they call home.

19 : Hannah and Jarrett

These two wanted to get some couples portraits done, but Jarrett confessed to being painfully camera shy. Keen to make Jarrett feel at ease, I suggested that we go on a casual shoot, incorporating the idea of a prairie picnic and a game of cards.

18 : Andrew and Judy

Walking through Edmonton’s Old Strathcona, I looked for opportunities to practise new compositional techniques. One of my favourite shots of the day captured Judy and Andrew in the foreground and used the walls of Southern Autobody as the backdrop.

4 : Cathy & Gianmarco

Cue the somewhat worn but never out-of-fashion beachside props: massive weeping willows, warm grains of sand, wild grasses swaying in the wind.
