Today’s wedding comes from established wedding photographer Emilie Olson. She was chosen to photograph Hannah and Justin’s gorgeous wedding at the Parisian Laundry in Montreal and captured the day beautifully. And we have to mention, the party looks like a fun one!
We asked Emilie herself to tell us a little more about the wedding day itself…
“Waiting in the car for Justin’s limo to arrive, the sun is almost immediately swallowed up with rain clouds and it’s torrential downpour. This is the moment where a photographer has to say, do we wait for it to pass? How much time do we have to wait it out, or to travel to our Plan B? This is the sort of pressure wedding photographers deal with on a weekly basis, more than once (and only 1 of the many problems we may need to solve).
This pressure is exactly why I’ve been photographing weddings for 10 years and why I still love them. I still have butterflies. If we weren’t pushed to work under pressure, we wouldn’t stay this in love with our work, or get striking material. That is what’s so special to us, and especially our clients. Our plan B was to (quickly) make our way to an industrial building in Saint Henri that I knew had great pockets of window light, and no one around to question us. I’m in love with what came out of it.
Hannah and Justin were calm, trusting and simply happy – this was their wedding day. Why shouldn’t they be?! They were getting married and letting the pros do the thinking.”
Big thanks to Hannah and Justin for allowing us to share their story, and to Emilie for the fantastic images.
There was also a huge and incredible team of wedding vendors that worked on this day…
