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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jennifer & Josh ~ plusOne

June 9, 2016

It was so great to see Jen­nifer and Josh again after a cou­ple of years of hav­ing cov­ered their wed­ding. This time, they had hired me to cap­ture the next stage of their lives … expect­ing an addi­tion to their fam­i­ly. It’s awk­ward for me to say that they had “hired” me, as I deem […]
