kandise & andre should win some kind of award. when they heard i was going to be in montreal over remembrance day weekend, they planned a road-trip from new brunswick to have me take their picture! a nine hour drive? that’s dedication. ahhh, yes, i guess the actual city of montreal was a pretty big draw too [it’s kinda great] and they made a fantastic weekend out of the trip. these two were a blast to photograph: so comfortable in front of my camera. perhaps that’s because kandise is a wedding photographer herself. ;)

engagements, photography | November 15, 2011
i spent my teenage years as part of an incredible youth group at southgate church. although there weren’t more than about fifty of us, we had some incredible times together. i met my friend scott & his family through church and we were often around the same circles. after high school graduation, scott moved to montreal to attend mcgill university on a partial scholarship. four years later, i found myself in montreal photographing his engagement session to an incredible girl named mari. ahh, i love God’s plans & it’s always beautiful to look back on the years leading up to the relationships He brings together.

i’ve had a few friends ask, what are your plans for tomorrow? the-jamie-at-home would have her day planned and organized by order of most-immediate priority — with the help of teux-deux, google calendar and her inbox. the-jamie-in-quebec-for-three-weeks doesn’t know what she’s doing tonight. a typical day includes lazily waking up around nine, spending some time in my bible, grabbing a book and venturing out to find good coffee. i am very particular about my coffee shop choice. the atmosphere is almost as important as the coffee. i found this awesome coffee blog called adbeus & yesterday morning picked a coffee shop to try. but when i arrived it wasn’t the right atmosphere. the right people to people-watch weren’t there. i didn’t want to linger. call me fickle. i don’t care: i have time to be fickle. ;)
