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 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 […]

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 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 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 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. ~ 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 […]

N.C. + R.C. ~ The Answer Is Yes!

September 29, 2016

You got to hand it to mothers … (now that’s a strange way to begin a post about a couple?!). But it’s true! If it hadn’t been for my coworker, Jacky, I wouldn’t have gotten the endorsement to photograph her daughter’s wedding. So much so that she joined in Nikki and Ryan’s engagement session … […]

S.J. + V.W. ~ The Answer Is Yes!

September 23, 2016

I had sung with Ashley in the University of Toronto Gospel Choir for a few years and it was great to have met someone who appreciated photography, let alone my own style. So here she was, generously hiring me to shower her own friends with photography sessions as gifts and one of them was a […]

K.E. + R.O. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

August 25, 2016

It can happen. Book a date for the engagement session. Downpour on the said-date. Book again! Yet it’s so great when the couple are flexible at a moment’s notice. Granted, during Kaitlin and Ryan’s engagement session, it was still overcast so we had to work quickly. Not having been to Port Perry-Lake Scugog before, I had […]

K.C. + C.C. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

April 21, 2016

Everyone likes surprises, right? Well, mine came from a high school friend who I hadn’t seen in years! When I received the call from Chris, it was so great to catch up and hear about how he was doing and which other high school friends we’ve kept in touch with over the years. I was […]

A.M. + L.D. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

March 10, 2016

It’s not by chance that Louie had learned the romantic language of Italian, as fate would have him meet his Italian soul mate years later. Alicia and I had sung together for the choir at CCY, so much so, she had shared her melodic voice at my own wedding! It was so great to know […]

C.A. + F.A. ~ The Answer Is Yes!

February 4, 2016

Really interesting how I met Carolina and Francisco: Along with my wife and brother, we were asked to provide music for a weekend retreat. As Spirit-filled as it was, I got to meet this young couple: two beautiful souls destined for each other. It was only a matter of time that the next phase of their […]

A Year in Review: 2015

December 31, 2015

So the year has ended and I thought to share my favourite pics from the sessions I had. I was given the honour of shooting weddings, engagements, maternity sessions (some for couples whose weddings I had shot previously), and shortly after, the grace to meet the baby that grew inside the mother’s womb, family sessions, […]

K.M. + F.L. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

October 8, 2015

After Kim and Fred graciously hired me to cover their wedding, I was so excited to get started on their engagement photoshoot. Hallowe’en is just as big of an event as Christmas and they wanted to incorporate that into both their engagement session and their wedding. As you will see, they decided to use the […]

L.A. + R.R. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

August 13, 2015

These two love birds, I have known and grew in faith through the Catholic Chaplaincy at York University. And going back a bit further, I had known Renard back at our parish in Scarborough (Prince of Peace R.C. Church) all the while having served as a parish team member alongside his sister (who is now, Sr. Teresa […]

L.V. + C.W. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

June 25, 2015

It is always humbling when being referred to by friends to their best friends, even if they are miles away! Because of the distance that separated Laura & Colin and I, we set up a Skype meeting. (Yes, I can do interviews through Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts. Gotta love technology!) As the meeting went on, […]

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!!! […]

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 […]
