Tiffany + Sean ~ The Knot Is Tied!

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

October 6, 2016

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 […]

K.E. + R.O. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

September 16, 2016

What was a cool and autumn engage­ment ses­sion (almost rainy, even!), only was a pre­cur­sor to the oppo­site of Katie and Ryan’s wed­ding: bright and sun­ny and hot! It was so hot that even the groom and grooms­men had to relieve them­selves from wear­ing their suit blaz­ers dur­ing the for­mals, only to put them one […]

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 […]

K.C. + C.C. ~ The Knot Is Tied

May 5, 2016

The wed­ding day had final­ly arrived and it was noth­ing short of emo­tion­al. As tim­ing would have it, Chris and his fam­i­ly had lost a very dear fam­i­ly mem­ber so close to the wed­ding that tears shed were both filled with sad­ness and joy. I am in utmost admi­ra­tion of how Karen and Chris had car­ried them­selves through­out […]

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

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 […]
