SURPRISE PROPOSAL IN MONTRÉAL CITY

*English below

Vedran m’a écrit il y a de cela un moment, afin de me mentionner qu’il venait à Montréal avec sa copine et qu’il avait l’intention de lui demander sa main. Il souhaitait donc trouver une photographe afin de capturer ce grand moment. J’ai tout de suite dis oui. Photographier une demande en mariage est un RÊVE pour tout photographe de mariage !!
Vedran m’a mentionné que sa copine attendait ce moment depuis quelques temps déjà et il ne souhaitait pas qu’elle devine ses intentions, nous devions donc trouver une façon de la surprendre !
Nous avons donc confirmé une heure et un lieu de rendez-vous et lorsque je les ai vus arriver, je me suis présentée à eux en leur disant que j’étais une photographe débutante et que je souhaitais agrandir mon portfolio de couple. Je leur ai demandé si je pouvais prendre quelques photos d’eux. Lorsqu’ils ont acceptés, je les ai placés à l’endroit désiré et c’est à ce moment que Vedran a fait sa grande demande!
C’était un moment extrêmement fort en émotions. Ils se sont mis à pleurer tous les deux et à ce même moment je me suis sentie TELLEMENT chanceuse d’exercer ce travail.

Après la demande, nous avons pris un moment afin de faire une séance couple dans le vieux Montréal et c’était superbe. J’ai découvert deux personnes tellement amoureuses et superbes. J’étais tellement contente d’avoir eu la chance de rencontrer ce merveilleux couple.
Nous avons terminés la séance dans une petite allée super romantique et à ce moment il s’est mis à neiger, c’était romantique et tellement magique.

Je souhaite à Vedran & Alex un mariage superbe et je leur souhaite aussi tout le bonheur du monde. Avec le grand coeur qu’ils ont, ils le méritent!

Et sur ce, je vous laisse apprécier les images ! :)


A little while ago, Vedran wrote to me telling me his girlfriend and himself were coming to Montreal for a few days and he was gonna propose. He wanted a photographer to capture that important moment. I immediately said say! Capturing a surprise proposal is literally EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER DREAM !!
We had to find the perfect way to do it, because Vedran knew his girlfriend had been waiting for that moment for a while now and he didn’t want her to find out about his intentions. They had been together for 8 years, if I remember well !!
So, we scheduled a place and a time and I came to them telling them I was an aspiring photographer and asking if I could take a few shots of them. When they said yes, I posed them at the right place and Vedran did his thing.
It was SO emotional. They both started crying and I found myself the luckiest person in the world to have this wonderful job.

After the proposal, we did a small photoshoot in the old Montreal and it was beautiful. They were both so sweet and incredible persons and I was so happy I had the opportunity to meet them.
We ended the shoot in the cutest little alley and it started to snow, it was so magical.

I now wish Vedran & Alex and amazing wedding and all the happiness in the world, they totally deserve it !!

Here’s a few words Vedran & Alex wrote to me after our amazing day!

“Words cannot express how grateful my fiancé and I are for Violaine’s hard work. We cannot thank her enough for the amazing photographs she captured of our engagement! My fiancé had this master plan to ensure I was surprised when he’d propose and Violaine’s vision with a plan that most photographer would probably think was silly became the most magical moment we will never forget! Not only did she capture it perfectly, she spent an hour with us afterwards walking through town in the COLD to take extra shots. She went above and beyond to make this a memorable moment.
At first I was so nervous and felt awkward in front of the camera, but her friendly attitude and ease made it so natural for us to just be us. The pictures turned out even more amazing than what we could have imagined. Thank you again Violaine for everything you helped with for that day and the memories we now have to share with friends and family for years to come!'“
