A Captured Moment with Fr. Michael Simoes

May 14, 2015

Last year, on Moth­er’s Day, one of my good friends became a father…Fr. Michael Simoes, that is! Fr. Michael and I have known each oth­er from our young adult group days at Prince of Peace R.C. Church as far back as … well, I’m not going to date myself (j/k!). Enjoy­ing all the activ­i­ties and […]

About Face: Portraiture Series

May 7, 2015

In the army, a sol­dier would auto­mat­i­cal­ly react to the com­mand “About face!!!” by turn­ing from what­ev­er posi­tion they were in, towards their supe­ri­or. In the same light, this year I am start­ing a series called “About Face” where the sub­jects are the ones turn­ing towards the lens. I have been priv­i­leged enough to meet […]

A Captured Moment with Joe Zambon

September 18, 2014

I had met this young tal­ent­ed musi­cian at the Catholic Chap­lain­cy at York Uni­ver­si­ty, as I was near­ing the end of my involve­ment with the choir, as their key­boardist. Joe Zam­bon had just start­ed as their new pas­toral assis­tant but I had only heard from choir mem­bers about his musi­cian­ship. It was not until he […]

A Captured Moment with Karen Tan

March 7, 2014

I was so priv­i­leged to have been asked to take por­traits of a tal­ent­ed local artist, Karen Tan, who has been sought-after by the Fil­ipino com­mu­ni­ty for her won­der­ful singing voice. We had been friends through mutu­al friend-musi­­cians and it was a great reunion, as we had­n’t seen each oth­er for a loong time. Karen con­tin­ues […]

A Captured Moment with Jessica Ann Berube

February 28, 2014

You may find this face famil­iar, as she was part of the wed­ding par­ty in Brit­tany and Kyle’s wed­ding, a cou­ple posts ago. I was so hum­bled when Jes­si­ca had asked me to take some head shots. Did­n’t I men­tion that the wed­ding knows no bounds when it comes to artis­tic tal­ent? Well, Jes­si­ca is […]

A Captured Moment with Josh Canning

August 8, 2013

It’s always great to receive sup­port and encour­age­ment from close friends. But when they actu­al­ly hire you because they believe in you, it’s tru­ly a hum­bling expe­ri­ence. Josh Can­ning is one of those friends who request­ed for some por­traits. Not only just for a LinkedIn pro­file pic, he would use his mug shot as he […]

(E. + R.) C. ~ 25th Anniversary Photoshoot

February 4, 2012

As most of my for­mal por­trait ses­sions involve engaged or mar­ried cou­ples, it is great to see the kind of love that they share: excit­ed and vibrant. Then, the true tes­ta­ment of that love is to be able to use those same descrip­tors of love 25 years down the road. This is what was tru­ly […]

Terry Swan: a Portrait

January 18, 2012

It was a plea­sure meet­ing Ter­ry Swan through a good friend of mine, where­in she required some por­traits done for an event out in Van­cou­ver, BC – as she was one of the keynote speak­ers. We had a fun ses­sion at the Dis­tillery Disc­trict! Ter­ry was an awe­some mod­el and you can see a lot […]

A.R. + S.C. : 100% Engaged!

December 1, 2011

The fore­cast called for 60% rain that week­end and I was scared that we would have had to post­pone Andrea and Steve’s engage­ment shoot. When we got ready to leave from the East end of the city, it was only driz­zling but then halfway through the dri­ve, it start­ed pour­ing! Hav­ing texted with Andrea revealed […]

I.F. + A.M. : 100% Engaged!

October 18, 2011

mddpho­tog­ra­phy gets punk’d. Yup! You read that right. But this prac­ti­cal joke end­ed up with a very heart­warm­ing result rather than leav­ing the vic­tim with a very embarass­ing facial expres­sion as the accom­plices slow­ly come out of the wood­work still laugh­ing and point­ing fin­gers. :0P To make a long sto­ry short, I had received an […]

All thanks to Lisa Can­ning, I have yet anoth­er chance to be pub­lished in Dab­ble Mag­a­zine! We had got­ten togeth­er to do anoth­er pho­to­shoot, this time with a trendy look­ing bean bag.

J.C. + I.V. : 100% Engaged!

July 26, 2011

The Date Night”…is how Joce­lyn and Immanuel had described the essence of what they want­ed out of their pho­tos for the engage­ment ses­sion. And that’s what we did! The “date” start­ed off at the beau­ti­ful brick/industrial area of the Dis­tillery Dis­trict. While near the coast, why not a roman­tic stroll along the board­walk of Toronto’s […]

F.M. + T.A : 100% Engaged!

July 11, 2011

Silent…but STRONG!” is how I can describe one of ‘ma boyz’ from high school. And it’s through des­tiny that Ter­ry and his fiancée, Filom­e­na, should jour­ney towards an awe­some life in mat­ri­mo­ny! Both hav­ing met at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to (St. George Cam­pus), it was the per­fect back­drop to take their engage­ment shots. We had […]

Lisa Canning’s Photoshoot for Dabble Magazine

June 29, 2011

One of my good friends, Lisa Can­ning, had asked me to do some por­traits for her fea­ture in Dab­ble Mag­a­zine. It has been great to watch her suc­cess grow over the years and it’s no sur­prise that her tal­ent made (makes) her a sought after inte­ri­or styl­ist. So much so that she’s a reg­u­lar on […]
