"Wendy-you are magic with that camera...you captured her sunbeam energy perfectly."

Bonjour & Welcome to MONARCH IMAGES MONARQUES, a unique photographic experience, where we make memories ART worthy!

Nous sommes une expérience de photographie unique, avec les souvenirs photos comme oeuvres d'ART!

If we haven’t met yet, my name is Wendy Longlade, and I am a photographer in Montreal’s West Island. I have been a professional photographer BFA for over 25 years, having worked as a photojournalist, wedding/event, and and portrait photographer all over the world. Being a mother has greatly influenced my work, charging it with intimacy and love, laughter and an appreciation for the wonder of childhood. You'll walk away with photography of your kids you'll be proud to display in your home as true masterpieces.


The passing of my daughter in 2012 brought on the epiphany of the importance of memories attached to photos, those images of her are the most precious and priceless treasures I have. Family is everything, and I specialize in portraiture designed to be enjoyed today, then passed on for generations. My goal is to capture your legacy, your love, and the laughter and special moments that is all about you. You will never regret the investment you make in a family portrait.


It is my privilege to get to know you and let your light shine, creating portraits that are unique to you. My sessions are an empowering experience, and a chance to focus on the beauty of who you really are, just as you are. What a confidence boost! The experience is fun, never stiff and formal, we’ll laugh a lot and become friends. 


As a former dancer/teacher, I specialize in dance and movement photography. I bring forth technique and a dynamic quality to each dancer/gymnast/yogi/cheer because I love to let that amazing beauty and energy radiate! I will showcase them to the best of their abilities, regardless of the level they are at.
