Natural couple photography in Montreal

Judy planned a surprise trip to Montreal for her and her husband Patrick’s 2-year anniversary. She contacted me because she liked my documentary photography approach. She was looking for a local photographer who could take candid photos as she and Patrick explored Montreal. She wanted an authentic approach and less staged photos, because her and her husband are both a little shy in photos and would rather be captured in a candid way.

A taste of the Mile End

To get documentary couple pictures, it’s really good to plan for an activity you enjoy doing together. That way, I can get unposed images of you in action. What better activity on vacation than trying some local foods? We stopped by the take-out gnocchi place and Kem CoBa ice cream shop for some tasty treats for Judy and Patrick to try together. Yum!

Lifestyle couple photos around the Plateau Mont-Royal

We headed out to a nearby park to sit by the fountain and then wandered off to explore some alleyways for interesting graffiti. We were also hunting for some of Montreal’s famous colourful houses. This part of the photo session was not pure documentary, since I did make some suggestions for interactive poses. These kinds of active poses are usually called lifestyle portraits, since they capture people reacting naturally as they would in everyday life.

Little moments of laughter and love

As we wandered throughout the neighbourhood, I was able to capture some moments of natural laughs and candid reactions from Judy and Patrick. I feel that it’s so important to let yourself relax and have fun during a couple photoshoot. That’s why unposed shoots are so much funner! You can laugh with your partner, even though you feel a little awkward because there’s a photographer stalking you. 😉 A good documentary couple photographer will be able to catch the little moments and looks you share together. And these photos will look more like the real you!
