Leanna + Kishan ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 1, 2018

What can I say about these two? Ah-dor-a-ble! From the moment they had me over at Kishan’s place for our first meet­ing and being “ubered” by Lean­na who was on her way over from work, it was such a great time spent get­ting to know this Romeo & Juli­ette. Talk­ing about how they met, the […]

January 23, 2018

Tiffany and Sean came to me through the refer­ral of a won­der­ful friend and tal­ent­ed indi­vid­ual, Ian Liwanag (who’s a pre­ferred DJ at The Old Mill, Toron­to). Even after hav­ing dropped my name it was so con­sid­er­ate of them to pur­sue and get in touch with me. Our inter­view through Skype brought a lot of […]

Brittany + Matt ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 15, 2018

They had seen me at work at Cather­ine & Matthew’s wed­ding and good thing I was on my best behav­iour (LOL!) because Brit­tany & Matt, end­ed up giv­ing me the hon­our to cov­er their wed­ding! Matt is actu­al­ly Catherine’s broth­er and it’s so great when ses­sions work like this, espe­cial­ly when fam­i­lies like his ush­er […]

Cinthia + Michael ~ The Knot Is Tied!

December 12, 2017

It was a win­ter wed­ding, actu­al­ly the first of three that I had that month. Yet, what a wed­ding for me to start the year off with! Cinthia and Michael planned it so well, we even had a won­der­ful spot of sun­shine and got to take some pho­tos out­side. I also got to cel­e­brate it with […]

Catherine + Matthew ~ The Knot Is Tied!

November 23, 2017

Being a wed­ding co-ordi­­na­­tor her­self, Cather­ine had just planned a flu­id wed­ding day that both her and Matthew would enjoy. And it was just that! Know­ing that I’m a solo-pho­­tog­ra­ph­er, we planned it out that I would see her first. Spend­ing that first hour with her and the gals in excit­ed glee, I was able […]

Cinthia + Michael ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

November 3, 2017

She was the maid-of-hon­our. He was the best-man. It was des­tined. The wed­ding I speak of was Jen­nifer & Josh’s about three years before Cinthia & Michael decid­ed to fol­low-suit. And it was soo hum­bling that they would reach out to me to cap­ture both their engage­ment and wed­ding. After a won­der­ful catch-up through Skype, […]

Catherine + Matthew ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

October 19, 2017

We had chat­ted a lot about wed­dings, as Cather­ine got her cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in wed­ding plan­ning, and it was fun to talk about our expe­ri­ences of wed­dings we’ve been to. I actu­al­ly got to see her in action and work along­side her, as our mutu­al col­league and friend had hired her to make the wed­ding day […]

Ann-Marie + Ryan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

September 14, 2017

In the days lead­ing up to the wed­ding, I joked with Ann-Marie, “So what time do you want me to start? Six in the morn­ing? … haha! ” Ann-Marie: “Umm, yeah! Is that okay?” And when I real­ized that she wasn’t jok­ing, I took a deep breath and told myself: “I got this!” I was […]

Ann-Marie + Ryan ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

August 30, 2017

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s always hum­bling when a peer of yours has faith in your craft and wants you to cap­ture her wed­ding. Even before that, Ann-Marie was so gra­cious to pur­chase ses­sions from me to give as presents for her friends. As a result, I had met many […]

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 […]

Debbie + Jafari ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

July 21, 2017

It had been almost a year since we had our ini­tial meet­ing when Deb­bie & Jafari, “signed” with me. So, see­ing them again dur­ing this engage­ment ses­sion was like a reunion! We met up at the Bri­tan­nia School Farm and what a beau­ti­ful day to enjoy. They were cer­tain­ly pre­pared with their wardrobe match­ing each […]

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 […]

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 […]

J.D. + C.D. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

March 24, 2017

I was graced to hear from this cute cou­ple when I had already booked Judy’s cousin’s wed­ding before­hand. Then, we had arranged for our first meet’n’greet and got to meet her fiancé, Chef Chris. You got that right! Judy got her­self a cookin’ hus­band. They were so cute to chat with and I was excit­ed […]

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 […]

B.B. + A.W. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 27, 2017

Once again, this engage­ment ses­sion couldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out the gen­eros­i­ty and thought­ful­ness of my UTGC choir-mate, Ash­ley — who in the past had bought ses­sions as gifts for her good friends: Maris­sa & Basel, Man­dana & Daniel, Vaughn & Saman­tha. And with each ses­sion, I’ve met just as won­der­ful peo­ple as she con­tin­ues […]

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 […]

Com­ing down to the last cou­ple of friends from the Catholic Chap­lain­cy at York Uni­ver­si­ty, Karen had intro­duced me to her fiancé, Allis­ter, at our meet­ing dis­cussing their upcom­ing wed­ding. It was excit­ing to see anoth­er friend accept­ing her voca­tion in mar­riage and only to com­plete it with a great car­ing part­ner for life. The […]
