We recently asked a group of our photographer friends what their favorite locations were for romantic photo shoots in Montreal. The Old Port came up first, as one might expect, but they also made a few suprising suggestions. For instance, Chantale Lecours, a Montreal portrait photographer who also does weddings and special events, told us that on several occasions she’s brought newly-weds and young couples to the Mile End, where the Champ des possibles and other open spaces near the train tracks make an interesting backdrop for action photography.
Here is a personal selection of our favorite pictures of couples taken in Montreal. Whether shot by professionnals or by amateurs, unbeknownst to their subjects or elaborately posed, we love the intimacy that they capture.
