J & D: Engaged!

It all started at a wedding. Jessica wasn’t going to go but after many phone calls from her friends telling her she had to come see this fantastic guy at the reception, she couldn’t resist. Dave was the center of attention with all the girls, that is, until Jessica arrived. And the rest is history…

We can’t tell you how thrilled we are with this cute couple! From the first time we met Jessica and Dave it seemed like we’ve been friends since high school, we all just clicked. Despite it being cold and windy on Sunday they braved the weather and exceeded all our expectations! We have a sneaky suspicion that they secretly pose for high fashion magazines in their spare time because once we got rolling, they busted out some killer poses.

The day was stunning with a golden sun shining and not a cloud in the sky. We took Jessica and Dave to Montreal’s famous Old Port which is rich in history, with cobble stone roads and beautiful 300 year old architecture. There were a ton of people but Jessica and Dave quickly got used to dodging the huge numbers of tourists in the area. After a much needed break at a nearby cafe on St-Paul St. we headed over to some other grungier parts of Montreal where we found some really cool decaying industrial buildings and machinery.

If you like what you see please leave a comment, we would love to hear from you! Oh, and don’t forget to check out the slideshow at the very bottom of this post. We are SO excited to be a part of their wedding in May, thanks for a really fun day you guys!


We love this next shot!





We’re not quite sure how Jessica managed to look so hot while bouncing on Dave’s back?!



Hmmm…”531″ sounds oddly familiar…someone’s wedding date maybe?




Dave’s new desktop wallpaper…


They pretty much got lost in each other here. You can tell they are in love!



Can you say high fashion?


Check out these locations! Could these colors be any more fabulous?
