Engagement Session

Montreal Engagement Session

I had the privilege of growing up as part of a close-knit youth group at Southgate Church. Although we were a small group of about fifty individuals, we formed unbreakable bonds and shared unforgettable experiences. It was through this community that I met Scott and his family and we quickly became close friends. After high school, Scott pursued his dreams at McGill University in Montreal and four years later, I found myself capturing his engagement session to the love of his life, Mari. It’s a beautiful reminder of how God orchestrates relationships in our lives. Join me as I share their stunning engagement session in the vibrant city of Montreal.

Spending time with Scott and Mari was the highlight of my recent trip to Montreal. Over the course of three evenings, I was treated to home-cooked meals and an evening of exploring the contemporary art museum. Their friendship-turned-romance story was a joy to hear, and I felt right at home in their company. Enjoy their Montreal Engagement Session!
