2016 was an amazing year for Cassandre Poblah Photography. In a nutshell, I experienced a crazy amount of growth, gained financial stability in my company, and worked on over 40 shoots.

With the new year less than a month away, I decided to look back and compile a list featuring “the best of” images of my work. It was a really fun exercise to do and fits perfectly with my goal of shooting with even more intention in 2017.

It’s my hope that you enjoy scrolling through the visual anthology of my work. 2017 is going to be even bigger and better as I have 10 engagement sessions and 21 weddings lined up before the year has even started! I’m excited at what’s coming up and happy that you’re here on this journey with me.

I wish you and your loved ones and very happy and loving 2017!

xx, Cass

Hottest Kisses

“It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.” ―Tahereh Mafi

What in my opinion, qualifies as a hot kiss? It’s all about the positioning of the hands!

Thanks to all of you for not making me feel like a creeper when I examined you kissing, moved you around, and told you to slow it down, lol. xx

Beautiful Blur

There is no real beauty without some slight imperfection. ―James Salter

I have a very deep connection with each of the following images. I know they’re imperfect and blurry but there’s something about each one that makes my heart smile. Mariage au Verger Jude Pomme-Montreal Wedding Photographer Cassandre PoblahHoliday session at Distillery District Pointe Claire Village Engagement naya-elies-engagement_by-cass-poblah-6233

Hunks

Ummm, can I just say that my brides are getting married to the hottest guys! Check out a very small sample of the finest guys in Montreal:). I can’t even think of one of my grooms that isn’t a hunk. Isn’t that amazing!? #mybrideshavetheverybesttasteWedding at Au Vieux Moulin by Cass PoblahEngagement session at Montreal's St. Joseph Oratory.

 Most beautiful moments alone

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – When Harry Met Sally

Take a look at these moments right before my brides say I do to the man of their dreams. It only takes a few minutes for them to calm down and ease into what turns out to be really intimate and beautiful moments alone. Wedding L'Ambroisie et L'Espace Canal by Cass Poblah Wedding at Hotel Mont Gabriel by Cass Poblah/mariage au hotel mont gabriel Brittany and Kevin's Wedding! by Cass Poblah-web-5745

Laughter

“If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.” -Yakov Smirnoff

Whenever my couples laugh, I can’t help but laugh myself, especially when Pablo is around. Engagement session in Montreal by Cass PoblahWedding at Au Vieux Moulin by Cass Poblah K & J collage 3 by Cass Poblah Favorite Collages

I’m definitely going to do more of these in 2017:) Don’t be shy to tell me, “Cass, hook me up with a collage!”, but be sure to do it during your session so that we can set up a little sequence of photos.Engagement session at Montreal's St. Joseph Oratory.

Favorite Poses

All of you that have already had your session with me know that the majority of the images you’ve seen are in fact posed (even though most look really natural). I’m a huge believer in directing couples to get the best images possible but while I love the more candid looking poses, I always throw in more obvious looking poses. Moms love these!Holiday session at Distillery DistrictLachine Canal Engagementl by Cass PoblahEngagement session at Montreal's St. Joseph Oratory.

Sweetest kisses

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead.” – Marilyn Monroe

Tender kisses that make your heart melt:)

Prettiest Places

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”

 Prettiest Colors

Ok, so you know I spend most of my time editing on color right? I’ve said this to you all when we met. Beautiful, bright, airy, pastels and neutrals make my heart skip a muthaf**king beat!

I don’t know what else to say, I look at these perfect colors and I want to scream and shout and dance all around.Lachine Canal Engagementl by Cass PoblahCentre de la Nature Engagement PhotosWedding L'Ambroisie et L'Espace Canal by Cass PoblahPointe Claire Village Engagementlifestyle maternity sessionHoliday session at Distillery DistrictEngagement session in the Old Port of Montreal, Montreal wedding photographer

Wildly Romantic

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”
– Mignon McLaughlin

According to a survey that I gave all of my clients, the top three words you used to describe my photography and company were: intimate, natural, and romantic. I think those words describe what I try to portray in each shoot and the following pictures definitely have a big romance factor. Mont Royal Engagement Session by Cass PoblahCentre de la Nature Engagement Photoswedding-in-the-old-port-of-montreall_cass-poblah-2126marieme-yann_by-cass-poblah-2565Wedding L'Ambroisie et L'Espace Canal by Cass Poblah Lachine Canal Engagementl by Cass PoblahMariage au Verger Jude Pomme-Montreal Wedding Photographer Cassandre PoblahWedding at Hotel Mont Gabriel by Cass Poblah/mariage au hotel mont gabriel Engagement session in Montreal by Cass Poblah Mariage au Hotel Mont GabrielEngagement session at Montreal's St. Joseph Oratory.

Perfect First Look

I don’t think I have any scheduled for 2017 but I will make it my mission to find creative ways for you all to have “blind first looks”, which is when you kiss/touch without actually seeing each other before the ceremony. Wedding at Hotel Mont Gabriel by Cass Poblah/mariage au hotel mont gabriel

Cutest Kids

Shout out to all the kiddos that make my pictures look cute without any effort!
