About two years ago, Justyna was looking for something to – somewhere new – to explore and photograph. Stumbling upon a small town in Atlantic Quebec (a “short” 13-hour drive from home), we knew we had to get to Perce. This year, we finally did it. The whole road trip was 25 hours (plus lunch breaks in between), and an overnight at an old friend’s house at the 7-hour mark. If there is one thing Canada needs help with, it’s promoting itself both abroad and nationally. We live in an enormous, breathtaking country, but so little of it is actually visited. Perce is well-known to many who live less than 500km from its splendid vistas but still relatively unknown by many who live in other parts of the country. Gazing upon its vista for the first time, Justyna actually wept, she found it so breathtaking; the sun, just setting, its golden rays illuminating our little cabin in a way that could only be described in some spiritual lingo.
Perce Quebec is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever visited. If you’re looking for a place to get married, elope or host an intimate wedding celebration, consider this jaw-dropping corner of Quebec as your backdrop. (If you have any questions, please reach out – we’re more than happy to recommend hotels, restaurants and additional vendors for your big day)
Even though our trip was purely for pleasure, we did manage to fit in a little dusk-lit photoshoot among the rocky coast. A special thank you to designer Brittany Schofield who lent us a gorgeous gown in case we found a little inspiration and were inclined to shoot (yes please). Although this was only our first time here, it certainly won’t be the last. If you’re looking for a Perce Quebec wedding photographer, we hope that we can help you out there, too, and chat about ways to make it happen. Happy exploring, everyone!
