We did this engagement shoot in an abandoned factory covered in graffiti!
About this creative couple
Elisa and Etienne are two energetic bundles of fun!
Being a nerd myself, I think I can safely call these two “creative geeks”. They are both artists but they also enjoy geekery like Otakuthon, anime and programming.
Elisa studied cartoon animation, but left her animation career to enjoy better work-life balance. Now, she enjoys working at a pet shop and has a gazillion (well, maybe 5) pets of her own.
Etienne is a graphic designer/website developer who’s also a skilled musician and swing dancer. He’s a big extrovert and has the best laugh!
Elisa and Etienne met in CEGEP many years ago. They are looking forward to finally tying the knot… and celebrating the beginning of a long and exciting adventure together!
Graffiti engagement photos for this playful couple
For their engagement session, we decided to forgo the typical romantic locations around Montreal (yes, Old Port, we’re talking about you) and get down and dirty exploring a graffiti-filled abandoned factory.
The Geo W. Reed & Co. factory in St-Henri, Montreal has been abandoned for so long that both nature and graffiti artists have taken back the building and made it something new.
Elisa and Etienne had an epic evening exploring the building, play-fighting with improvised swords, poking their arms through holes in the floor, dancing, kissing, enjoying some amazing graffiti art, climbing onto the roof, and lighting sparklers in the dark!
I hope you all enjoy these creative graffiti engagement photos!
