Casual and modest, this Toronto couple came to Montreal for their casual photo session. The most important thing for me when doing a casual session is to try and avoid as much of the stereotypical “kissing against the background” type photo, and let them be themselves by talking, smiling, and discussing their plans for tomorrow. The couple is at ease, and I get the best casual shots this way.
I like playing with harsh lighting and strong contrasts. We all just walk around the city and talk about their wedding plans and in doing so, I shoot along with them and even ask them to occasionally pause here and there for some great shots.
Susan and Ronald are a wonderfully shy and modest couple which made this brief 1 hour casual session so real and brilliant.
