Engagement

Heather + Bruno ~ The Answer Is Yes!

April 23, 2020

It was a fate­ful bus ride to Madon­na House where my wife and Heather met. With like-mind­ed souls, both going there for the same pur­pose of enrich­ing their per­son­al faith jour­ney, that moment was the start of a long-last­ing friend­ship. Heather end­ed up hon­our­ing us with her pres­ence as a brides­maid at our wed­ding. And […]

Michelle + Oliver ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

August 31, 2018

Today, my baby broth­er gets mar­ried. “Baby broth­er” tru­ly describes us well because (a) he’s my only broth­er; and (b) he was born when I was a strap­ping 12-year old. I’ve cer­tain­ly seen him grow through all the years. For sure there was that awk­ward ado­les­cent stage where our inter­ests col­lid­ed (he liked Weird Al’ […]

Erin + John ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

April 12, 2018

Meet­ing Erin & John was a result of friends sup­port­ing each oth­er. In this case, Ian Liwanag (who is a pre­ferred DJ ven­dor at the Old Mill, Toron­to), had con­tact­ed me to inquire if I was avail­able for their wed­ding. After a Skype meet­ing with Erin, the rest was his­to­ry and I’m indebt­ed to Ian […]

Leanna + Kishan ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 1, 2018

What can I say about these two? Ah-dor-a-ble! From the moment they had me over at Kis­han’s place for our first meet­ing and being “ubered” by Lean­na who was on her way over from work, it was such a great time spent get­ting to know this Romeo & Juli­ette. Talk­ing about how they met, the […]

Brittany + Matt ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 15, 2018

They had seen me at work at Cather­ine & Matthew’s wed­ding and good thing I was on my best behav­iour (LOL!) because Brit­tany & Matt, end­ed up giv­ing me the hon­our to cov­er their wed­ding! Matt is actu­al­ly Cather­ine’s broth­er and it’s so great when ses­sions work like this, espe­cial­ly when fam­i­lies like his ush­er […]

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 […]

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 […]
