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! <nudge!><nudge!><wink!><wink!>” 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

K.D. + A.L. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 2, 2017

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 […]

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 […]

T.A. + D.S. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 9, 2017

At the office, Taryn and I had always enjoyed a quick chat about one of the weddings she either attended or was part of as a bridesmaid in exchange for an anecdote (or two) about the weddings I had covered. The time had come that it was Taryn’s turn to be in the spotlight as a bride, […]

K.D. + K.G. ~ preWedding Reception

December 1, 2016

Kim and Kevin were all too thoughtful for the family and friends here “at home”, as they threw a preWedding reception just a few days before their destination wedding in Jamaica. In actuality, there were TWO receptions, both at the same venue: The Richmond. It was neat to see the transformation from the luncheon (which […]

K.D. + K.G. ~ The Answer Is Yes!

November 17, 2016

I got to meet this wonderful couple, Kim & Kevin, from another wonderful couple, Alicia & Louie. I had photographed Alicia & Louie’s wedding and it was so kind of them to pass along the referral which didn’t have far to travel since Alicia and Kim worked together. After our lunch meeting at Timmy’s, I […]

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 […]

N.C + R.C. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

From an autumn engagement session to a summer wedding, Nikki and Ryan were both lucky have the rain evade those days. Yet being overcast made for beautiful lighting for their outdoor wedding at Cave Springs Vineyard. Because the ceremony was there, it was only fitting to continue the reception at the Inn on the Twenty in […]
