History Museum engagement session with Corinne and Marc in Gatineau Quebec. It’s been a long time since we have done a session at this location but you can bet we will return. Corinne and Marc started off (as 99% of our couples do) by saying “We are extremely awkward in photos”. Their wedding is going to be in the winter which is not typical. That being said, we love winter weddings as much as summer ones BECAUSE they are different. We had a lot of fun shooting Connie & Eric’s wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel on New Year’s Eve, and Emily & Paul’s wedding at Le Belvedere shortly after that.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO WEAR COLOUR AT YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Do you see how Corinne wore a beautiful green dress? We always encourage our couples to be creative when thinking about what to wear during their engagement session. We want you to feel comfortable and have fun above all else. Check out our Best Tips for your Engagement Session Outfits for ideas on what you should consider when picking out what you’ll wear. You could tell that Corinne and Marc were comfortable posing and it shows in the photos and video.

SPIN 1, SPIN 2, HUG AND KISS

We get our couples to do a lot of “weird things” but it is completely normal for us. Spin 1 is when the man spins the woman in place while holding her hand above her head. Spin 2 is when you both extend your arms to your sides as far as they go while holding each other’s hand and she spins while wrapping herself in his arms until he is hugging her. Some variations of this move include kissing on the neck, and shoulder. This created an amazingly candid moment we love to capture.

We got busted by Security, what?

All fun and games until someone get’s busted correct? This History Museum Engagement was going so well until out of nowhere security came and tried to ruin the fun. To be honest, we didn’t even see them coming. Not sure how we didn’t, but it’s a funny story non the less. Corinne and Marc downed the champagne they poured and we moved on.

Change locations? OK! Remic Rapids Park Photo Location

The sun was quickly fading but earlier that week I had seen someone online posting a visit to this space. We asked if we could quickly jump to this new spot for the last few minutes of the session. Remic Rapids Park is situated on the shore of the Ottawa River, about four kilometers from Parliament Hill. This site provides stunning views of the river and an epic sunset. It was clear that it was a hot spot for photographers as well since so many were capturing the sun as it set behind us!
