L.X. + B.G. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

June 11, 2015

Although I had met Lisa and Bob through a refer­ral from a great sup­port­ive friend, it seems like it was inevitable. Upon con­nect­ing on Face­book, I noticed Lisa and I had mutu­al friends from high school and I had to ask how she knew them? Well, appar­ent­ly, we were at school at the same time!!! […]

A.M. + D.F. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 8, 2015

How time­ly is this blog post as we enter anoth­er cold day in win­ter? But should we (Cana­di­ans) com­plain know­ing it IS win­ter? Hehe! Well, Angela and Daniel’s love kept them warm dur­ing their engage­ment ses­sion. We first enjoyed the warm and humid air with­in the beau­ti­ful green­hous­es of the Allan Gar­dens Con­ser­va­to­ry (one of […]

J.M. + S.P. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

October 2, 2014

I had known Jes­si­ca since I had joined the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to Gospel Choir back in 2003. Not only did we con­nect on a Fil­ipino lev­el, her bright per­son­al­i­ty just uplifts any­one she meets. And to match that sun­shine, why not add anoth­er large reflec­tor to spread that joy around (sor­ry, pho­tog­ra­ph­er nerd-speak). I only […]

T.F. + D.B. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

July 24, 2014

From sis­ter to sis­ter, I was very priv­i­leged to con­tin­ue to be a part of anoth­er wed­ding from Son­al’s fam­i­ly (whose wed­ding was the very first one I shot). Well, five years lat­er, Tara was to “leave the nest” and start a new chap­ter in her life with her beau, Dio­go. Being a cou­ple who […]

Cute, cool, calm and collective…this is how I can describe Macy and Ryan, these two young love birds! It was so great for one of my long-time friends, Leah, to con­nect us. (Thanks, Leah!) Dur­ing our ini­tial meet­ing after I had gone through all the details, I had been so hum­bled for them to tell […]

B.T. + J.B. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

June 12, 2014

As with the recent sun­ny weath­er, Brandy and Jason emit sun­shine when­ev­er they are togeth­er. I had met them both at a mar­riage-prep course, where my wife and I had been asked to give our tes­ti­mo­ny to all the eager engaged cou­ples, encour­ag­ing them about the “ins” and “outs” of mar­riage and how they can […]

B.K. + K.D. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

September 26, 2013

Well, what can I say about this cou­ple? Young, tal­ent­ed, cre­ative, musi­cal … char­i­ta­ble and so much fun to hang out with! I’ve been so blessed to have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with yet anoth­er awe­some cou­ple who were so easy going that it was like we’ve been friends for a long time, even though […]

“Island Time”…could mean just the hourly change from time zones but for locals of the Caribbean (and close friends of those from the Caribbean) those two words mean “being late”. How could I even dare open up this post about this cou­ple? Well, it’s because with jok­ing under­stand­ing, they were actu­al­ly ON time and we […]

June 27, 2013

Reliv­ing the engage­ment phase through these cou­ples is always a treat! With Jen­nifer and Josh, you could feel the excite­ment they both have for their upcom­ing wed­ding. They had cho­sen a quin­tes­sen­tial loca­tion for the engage­ment ses­sion at The Adam­son Estate in Mis­sis­sauga. With young love, any­thing is pos­si­ble! We found a cute raised land­ing […]

C.C. + H.M. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

May 23, 2013

You know you’re in Cana­da when … you expe­ri­ence all four sea­sons in one … that being Spring. Luck­i­ly for Crys­tle and Hud­son, the day of their engage­ment ses­sion felt like the true def­i­n­i­tion of Spring: blue skies, light breeze, pleas­ant cli­mate and won­der­ful light­ing. It was their idea to catch the cher­ry blos­soms at […]

May 1, 2013

This year, the spring sea­son has real­ly been teas­ing us … more like con­fus­ing us when it would tru­ly arrive. Regard­less of when, the weath­er was not going to stop Man­dana and Dan from get­ting their engage­ment shots done. In actu­al­i­ty, they real­ly want­ed to have a snowy back­drop and thank­ful­ly (I say that loose­ly) […]

January 11, 2013

I remem­ber the time when my wife and I were prepar­ing to get mar­ried…all of our oth­er friends were get­ting mar­ried too!!! And that’s what brings me to this love­ly pair, Ash­ley and Joel. Very good friends of Rebekah and Stephan, who got mar­ried last year, it was gra­cious of them to call me up […]

“Get your motor runnin’…Head out on the highway…Lookin’ for adventure…And what­ev­er comes our way…!” Yes, these two love birds were born to be wild and born to find each oth­er in mar­riage. We had set out to shoot in Guelph (where the wed­ding will also be set) and picked a very cool area at Goldie […]

M.D. + B.J. ~ The Answer is Yes!

August 22, 2012

So this is what I love about my job as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er: meet­ing new peo­ple, mak­ing new friends and see­ing when two hearts are made for each oth­er. Meet­ing Maris­sa and Basel was no excep­tion. Ash­ley, one of my choir bud­dies, is a good friend of Maris­sa and she had a con­sid­er­ate and cre­ative idea […]

“Greet­ings Agent Dizon, we’ve been expect­ing you. Your mis­sion, should you choose to accept it, involves sim­u­lat­ing the pho­to­shoot with the deemed-to-be-mar­ried cou­ple, Rebekah and Stephan, for the first 10 min­utes of the ses­sion where ser­e­naders will wait for your cue to swarm in with Boyz II Men’s ‘I Do’. While Rebekah is dis­tract­ed, Stephan […]

G.D. + A.T. ~ The Answer is “Yes!”

January 5, 2012

One of the things I love about engage­ment shoots is scop­ing out the loca­tions. In my dis­cus­sion with Ghier­hol and Andrew, they had decid­ed on a “farm­scape”. Liv­ing in Stouf­fville made it chal­leng­ing to nail down just one back­drop because there were too many great ones to choose from! In the end, we went to […]

A.R. + S.C. : 100% Engaged!

December 1, 2011

The fore­cast called for 60% rain that week­end and I was scared that we would have had to post­pone Andrea and Steve’s engage­ment shoot. When we got ready to leave from the East end of the city, it was only driz­zling but then halfway through the dri­ve, it start­ed pour­ing! Hav­ing texted with Andrea revealed […]

October 18, 2011

mddpho­tog­ra­phy gets punk’d. Yup! You read that right. But this prac­ti­cal joke end­ed up with a very heart­warm­ing result rather than leav­ing the vic­tim with a very embarass­ing facial expres­sion as the accom­plices slow­ly come out of the wood­work still laugh­ing and point­ing fin­gers. :0P To make a long sto­ry short, I had received an […]

J.S. + L.S. : 100% Engaged!

September 29, 2011

How befit­ting it is to cap­ture an engage­ment shoot on a base­ball dia­mond…haha. (Okay, so I’ve tran­scend­ed corny jokes from my father!) But yes, Hen­don Park was the per­fect set­ting for Joce­lyn and Lin­ton, as it brought out their play­ful­ness as well as their “game faces” for love of each oth­er. It was per­fect weath­er, […]

J.C. + I.V. : 100% Engaged!

July 26, 2011

“The Date Night”…is how Joce­lyn and Immanuel had described the essence of what they want­ed out of their pho­tos for the engage­ment ses­sion. And that’s what we did! The “date” start­ed off at the beau­ti­ful brick/industrial area of the Dis­tillery Dis­trict. While near the coast, why not a roman­tic stroll along the board­walk of Toronto’s […]
