Debbie + Jafari ~ The Knot Is Tied!

August 18, 2017

“And ya kyant beet dat!” ~ Jafari’s Father (in his distinct Jamaican accent) That phrase pretty much summed up the entire wedding day that Debbie and Jafari enjoyed and had been anticipating. You couldn’t beat how stylish these two were: the beautiful embroidered wedding dress with a vintage mesh veil and the fly suit with […]

Krystiana & Ben ~ The Knot Is Tied!

June 22, 2017

What can I say about these two love birds? Elementary school sweet-hearts, youth ministers, faith-driven and über cute together! Having known them through church in our parish, it was very humbling to have been asked to capture their “Yes!” to God’s call in their vocation of marriage and to witness them vow to each other through […]

P.W. + S.I. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

June 1, 2017

This coming Sunday, my family and I will be going to the 21st Annual Butterfly Release and Family Picnic put on by the Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network (P.A.I.L.) Network. At this event, real butterflies are released in commemoration to the infants that have been lost: whether through miscarriage, still-birth, or early moments after birth. Since […]

S.K. + N.S. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

May 1, 2017

This was a first for me (and perhaps most of Shazia & Norman’s guests): an Irish-Ismaili Muslim wedding. Shazia and I had first met at Mandana and Daniel’s wedding and I remember her being a wonderful and gentle soul sincerely performing her duties as a bridesmaid. When she had contacted me announcing that she was […]

J.D. + C.D. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

March 31, 2017

They were planning for “small and intimate” and so their wedding day was just that. At St. John Vianney R.C. Church in Barrie, a number of close friends joined their immediate families attended Judy and Chris’ wedding. It was serene and peaceful and perfect for them both. Thereafter, we traveled to the lakeshore to continue on […]

B.B. + A.W. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

March 9, 2017

I guess you could call this one of my destination weddings, as I had to travel “all the way” to Stratford for Brittany and Alex’s wedding. What a beautiful romantic backdrop to celebrate a wedding. It brings me back to the days my wife and I were dating and enjoying the Shakespearean theatre and the […]

K.D. + A.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

February 10, 2017

As the first wedding of that year, this was the one to start with. Everything ran smoothly, there wasn’t a feeling of being rushed, there was ample time to enjoy and banter around and most of all, to witness Karen & Allister’s vows, was the icing on the cake. Both of them were organized to […]

T.A. + D.S. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 26, 2017

We were all watching the weather forecast and thankfully, rain didn’t show up as a guest. It was great to have had both Taryn and Dan in the same hotel (Pantages Hotel & Spa) which allowed me to casually see each of them for the pre-ceremony shots. To say the least, everyone was calm, cool […]

L.S. + P.J. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 27, 2016

So let’s back up a bit … say, my high school years. Yes, THAT long ago! Hanging out with “ma boyz” (Leslie and Louie) had always been the typical thing to do after school. At their house, we’d either play video games, 2-on-2 basketball on their driveway, rock it out on full-piece band set in the […]

C.G. + I.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

July 14, 2016

Time and time again, I am humbled with clients who are referred by previous clients. Such was the case with Charry and Ian. Charry has been long-time friends with Mandana (and Dan) and her sisters who was the catalyst to future clients. After a great introduction and discussion over the phone, we were set on our […]

R.W. + E.C. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

July 7, 2016

What can I say about these two? The word “Fun” would be an understatement. How about I try, “energetic”, “zany”, “uber-happy”? I’m pretty sure all our mutual friends would agree that these best describe Rhiannon & Ellison. If you have been following my posts, it seems like the Catholic Chaplaincy at York University has been […]

U.V. + L.P. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

May 26, 2016

A year has passed and these two lovebirds gave me the honour of capturing their wedding day. I’ve known Unaizah through choir at the Catholic Chaplaincy at York University (CCY) and it was at one of the retreats where she would meet the love of her life, Len. And what a perfect retreat for that […]

March 17, 2016

This was my last wedding of that year and I was excited! From the most unique rosary, where both of their names beautifully intersected in a cross, to celebrating their wedding day on All Saints Day, Alicia and Louie’s wedding was certainly covered in blessings. As they both got ready in close proximity to each […]

December 5, 2014

Ensuring that your wife is always fully stocked with business cards is always a good thing. My wife, Michelle, had met Lauren at one of the “Mommy & Me” groups and it was so timely that they would connect. Lauren and Jason were to be married and needed some formal shots taken between the ceremony […]

January 30, 2014

In Brittany and Kyle’s engagement post, I had left you hanging about a particular description about their wedding. Well, to say the least, I found myself like I was in a musical … the bride and groom sang, the bridesmaids and groomsmen led wonderful praise and worship, mom-of-the-bride played classical piano with two songbirds singing […]

M.F. + D.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied

August 29, 2013

I was having nostalgic feelings on Mandana and Dan‘s wedding day, as we approached Ontario Place’s Atlantis banquet hall. It was my grade 12 prom since I was last there and it brought back a lot of fond memories of a great dinner, a couple of entertaining performances and of course, “dancing ’till it’s 1999” […]

… and so does Sonal and Phil’s marriage who tied the knot five years ago! Yes, it’s my fifth year in operation and still climbing that mountain and enjoying it. This anniversary is marked by the very first wedding I had done in 2008. When I was asked by our very dear friends, Sonal and […]

July 11, 2013

When it comes to the end of a work week, we usually raise our arms and praise that it’s Friday. Well, “T.G.I.F.” had an even more special meaning for Danielle and Stefan. On this particular Friday, they got married! The weather truly set off the mood with the sun shining bright and blue skies. As […]

Excitement was certainly in the air right from the morning. Although there was a sense of peace, as I arrived at Andrea’s parents’ place to shoot some details, you could see it in her face that THE Day had finally come. The ladies had lots of fun at the salon, sharing past stories and imagining […]

July 12, 2012

Being present at one of “ma boyz’s” wedding is one thing. Being asked to cover his wedding … humbling and exciting! You will remember Filomena and Terry’s engagement shoot on the beautiful grounds of the University of Toronto (St. George Campus), which was the perfect backdrop for where they had met. But I didn’t feel […]
