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 […]

March 3, 2016

When I shot Lau­ra and Col­in’s engage­ment ses­sion, we used the grounds of where the wed­ding recep­tion was going to be held. On the morn­ing of the wed­ding, I had gone to see the excit­ed bride and her love­ly brides­maids at her par­ents’ place and what a trans­for­ma­tion had tak­en place! The tent was up and […]

L.A. + R.R. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 28, 2016

The big wed­ding day had final­ly come for Llorene and Renard and excite­ment start­ed to buzz since the morn­ing. See­ing the guys laugh it up and joke around as they got ready, was a lot of fun to shoot. Then, arriv­ing at the bride’s par­en­t’s home, the fra­grances that filled the air fore­told that it was […]

L.X. + B.G. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 21, 2016

Lisa and Bob’s wed­ding day had final­ly come. Sun was shin­ing, birds were chirp­ing, noth­ing could go wrong on this day. See­ing Lisa, as she got ready, was very chill yet the excite­ment also build­ing: espe­cial­ly when she came out in her wed­ding dress. The squeals and delights of the ladies in the room con­tin­ued […]

November 19, 2015

With such cute smiles, who could­n’t love these two? Kyle and Kristi­na’s wed­ding hap­pened upon a beau­ti­ful and sun­ny June day. The day start­ed of with the guys charg­ing up with some friend­ly video-gam­ing com­pe­ti­tions and then, the ladies excit­ed­ly dress­ing up to “nines”. Kyle’s pas­sion for the arts of comics/superheroes and Star Wars, could only be enjoyed […]

K.M. + F.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 29, 2015

This was one oppor­tu­ni­ty I was hop­ing not to miss. When the inquiry came in, Kim and Fred’s wed­ding date was set for Hal­lowe’en … yes, ON Octo­ber 31st!!! Because this was pret­ty much a once-in-a-life­­time gig, I left myself open in hopes that I’d be the pho­tog­ra­ph­er to cap­ture such a cre­ative wed­ding. And […]

S.C. + P.G. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

September 17, 2015

As the cliché phrase, “It’s so great to run into you!”, goes, many puns actu­al­ly point to how I met Sophie and Peter. Mom-in-law (Mom-Lor­raine) was an avid marathon run­ner and some of those races were enjoyed with her friend, Giselle. And since we were intro­duced to her daugh­ter, Sophie, we had seemed to run into […]

The Knot Is Tied!…at The Berkeley Church

April 23, 2015

I have attend­ed many won­der­ful events in this beau­ti­ful and his­toric place, The Berke­ley Church. Now, it was time for me to enjoy cap­tur­ing it at this cou­ple’s wed­ding. As this was a great mesh of cul­tures, it was hard not to miss any details. Any angle at the Berke­ley Church just made for a […]

April 9, 2015

It had almost been a year since I had seen Macy and Ryan on their engage­ment pho­to­shoot and their Big Day had final­ly come. The sched­ule of the day was packed: see­ing Macy and her gals get all pret­tied up by Melis Make­up + Hair check­ing out Ryan and his hench­men with many laughs and […]

J.M + S.P. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 30, 2015

Let it go…let it go!!!” Yes, by now, this phrase has been etched in every­one’s mem­o­ry, as the pop­u­lar Dis­ney movie, “Frozen”, touched many of our hearts. This is cer­tain­ly my segue to Jes­si­ca and Steve’s win­ter wed­ding whose hearts they touched through their union. Love cer­tain­ly was “let go” through­out the day and they […]

L.S. + J.R. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

December 5, 2014

Ensur­ing that your wife is always ful­ly stocked with busi­ness cards is always a good thing. My wife, Michelle, had met Lau­ren at one of the “Mom­my & Me” groups and it was so time­ly that they would con­nect. Lau­ren and Jason were to be mar­ried and need­ed some for­mal shots tak­en between the cer­e­mo­ny […]
