Locations Guide

Wedding, Engagement & Portrait Session

Besides from choosing a great wedding photographer and videographer for your fabulous wedding day, there are many other things that you can do yourself to guarantee amazing wedding pictures. One of the important things is to ensure that you choose a good photo-shoot location. A place that is convenient, accessible, perhaps sentimental, memorable and of course aesthetically beautiful. We’ve compiled a list of great wedding photo Locations in Montreal for you, whether the photography spots include indoor and outdoor options and anything else we know that we feel would be relevant. Though we have taken the time to consolidate what we can each location reserves the rights to their own fees, rules, and regulations.

Although tourists or private citizens can take photos almost anywhere, professional photographers are often constrained by local laws or by regulations enforced by private property owners.​

This session planning guide offers an exhaustive list of recommended Montreal portrait photography locations. We hope you find this guide helpful!
