Growing Miracles of Love with the Zarb Family

December 21, 2017

From engage­ment to wed­ding, from mater­ni­ty to first-born, Ash­ley and Joel have ush­ered me once again into the next phase of their lives … expect­ing no. 2! What a priv­i­lege it is to grow with clients whom I con­sid­er as friends. Since Isabella’s new­born ses­sion, I had only watched her grow through the won­der­ful images […]

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 […]

About Face: Andrew Santos

October 16, 2017

Andrew and I go way back to children’s choir. Although I was a strap­ping 20-some­thing key­boardist help­ing out the choir, it was such a delight to hear Andrew can­tor and use his ener­gy to sing for the Lord amidst all the oth­er kid­dies. Now, he is a com­mu­ni­ca­tions coor­di­na­tor for the Arch­dio­cese of Toron­to and […]

A Day in the Life of the Garde-Ginis Family

September 29, 2017

As I was shoot­ing Krys­tiana & Ben’s wed­ding, one of her rel­a­tives had approached me, ask­ing about pho­tog­ra­phy. If you know me by now, I can go on-and-on about pho­tog­ra­phy and it’s great to chat with some­one who has a pro­found inter­est in mak­ing great images. Hav­ing seen that inter­est, Krys­tiana and Ben had bought […]

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 […]

Cherishing Precious Moments with The Meyer Family

September 8, 2017

You may rec­og­nize Aman­da and Daniel from two occa­sions: Brit­tany & Kyle’s wed­ding (where Aman­da was a brides­maid) and their anniver­sary pho­to­shoot. It had been some time since I had seen them in per­son yet it had been great to always keep in touch. Lo’ and behold, their beau­ti­ful mar­riage has grown into a fam­i­ly! […]

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 […]

About Face: Aniela

August 10, 2017

Aniela is such a tal­ent­ed mod­el, actress and yoga instruc­tor, that as much as it is a photographer’s job to make the client feel at ease, it was vice ver­sa on this ses­sion. Our shoot was casu­al and had a won­der­ful chat! With such a beau­ti­ful soul, it was all to easy to make each […]

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 […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The George Family

April 20, 2017

My, how time flies and you get to see cou­ples go through their life stages from their engage­ment, their wed­ding, their mater­ni­ty and with God’s grace, a beau­ti­ful mir­a­cle of a child. I saw Rebekah and Stephan the moment that she said, “Yes!” in a roman­tic sur­prise pro­pos­al at Union Sta­tion. Since then, I had attend­ed […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Gubisi Family

April 6, 2017

When word gets around the office that I have a pho­tog­ra­phy side-gig, it’s a great rumor to be spread­ing! Hehe! My col­league, Car­ol, has always radi­at­ed her smile around the office and I was hum­bled when she asked me to cap­ture the smiles of the rest of her fam­i­ly! After our first son was born, […]
