I gave Ibrahim my camera at one point and asked him to take Reem's portrait, something they had done so many times before, (Ibrahim brought his Leica along for the session) yet this time was different. Ibrahim and his fiancée Reem (a Dubai-based Architect, and ex M.I.T. camera club darkroom manager) had flown in from Dubai to shoot their Montreal Adventure Session a short while back. They both confessed to being terribly camera shy, yet they both had an even better time than they had bet on, and really appreciated the loose and easy-going way I prefer to work. The short time we spent together that evening was full of jokes, polaroid taking, secret exposing, and other discoveries. I also had a lot of fun to say the least.
Walk with us throughout the hot waterfront piers of Montreal's Old Port, and a grassy open parcel of land at a remote section at the city's end, at twilight. Here are a handful of images of them yet still engaged in advance of their Montreal Wedding early winter 2016. This location is still one of my favourite spots to shoot in the city, and is my own little secret spot unknown to most.
