portrait | ellen + tushith

They were ready to trek far and wide, to bike kilometres from one beloved corner of the Montreal to another. They know this city inside and out, and can recite detailed histories of any given neighbourhood, street, or ongoing construction project. To say that Tushith (an engineer) and Ellen (an architect) have a love of cities and the buildings that comprise them would be a great understatement.

When deciding on the location for their portrait session, they couldn't agree on the best place. There are, after all, so many bests in Montreal. After much discussion, they remembered that they live mere blocks from one of best, or certainly the most beautiful: Square St-Louis. We started there, in the park, and then biked a few blocks to the rapidly-changing area where St-Laurent and Ste-Catherine intersect. Tushith and Ellen love the colourful grafitti and grittiness that may soon be painted or paved over to become part of the Quartier des Spectacles.

Ellen and Tush, thanks so much for spending a few hours on that perfect fall day with me. The sky was true blue, and you two are, too. You're both such elegant (yes, Tush, you're an elegant guy), classy people who love life and have really got your stuff together. You are the epitome of a power couple!
