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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

Welcome to the world, Evan James!

December 16, 2016

Evan = Fighter-Young Warrior-God is gracious / James = son of thunder Truly, the name couldn’t have been more perfect for Evan James who arrived safe & sound, although a month early. For reasons unknown, he was growing small and the best decision by the O.B. was to have him “out” for closer and safer […]

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 […]
