Love story of Anna and Andrea

By Manny

Montreal’s Lachine canal was a very unique place to photograph Anna and Andrea. This was a complementry shoot to their formal engagement. The weather started off gloomy with clouds and some rain. About fifteen minutes after arriving for the shoot the sky slowly began to clear up and we ended up with a beautiful day.

We all had so much fun and it shows in the photographs. We joked and laughed. I posed them and then I didn’t. I let them do their own thing which brought out their personalities.

They dressed casual and also brought along some props to add a little spice to it all. At some point we even used the cyclists that zoomed by to get something a little different. It was much appreciated since both Andrea and I are  road cyclists.

We shot for about three hours and then we went off to the Atwater market for a bite to eat. Thank you Andrea for treating me to………..whatever that was that I ate, it was very good. It was packed with people enjoying the outdoors and with vendors selling their goods.

What would a morning be like without that cup of coffee. It was that little kick we needed to get things started. We stood under a tree and hoped the weather would cooperate and sure enough it did.

There is no arret/stop. We are going and going all the way to the wedding that will be happening this year in August. By the looks of it, it is going to be a fantastic wedding.
