Into the Woods with the Øgaard Family

April 27, 2020

When I met this fam­i­ly, I was think­ing how much I was going to learn from Don­na and Peter who were rais­ing three boys, just like me. And I cer­tain­ly did! What I learned is to let them have fun. Boys are explor­ers, they like to climb trees, get into the thick of bush­es, get […]

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 […]

A Captured Moment with Sisters: Maggie and Alex

March 16, 2020

The term “fam­i­ly” goes a long way as to how I con­nect­ed with these two beau­ti­ful souls, Mag­gie and Alex. When I joined the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to Gospel Choir (UTGC), I was mere­ly seek­ing a musi­cal out­let, as I had fin­ished my term as a can­tor at my church. Lit­tle did I know, UTGC was […]

Grechen + Steve ~ The Knot Is Tied!

February 6, 2020

The last time I pho­tographed Grechen was when she was a brides­maid for Joce­lyn & Lin­ton’s wed­ding. I was more than hap­py when she con­tact­ed me to cap­ture her upcom­ing big day, let alone get to meet the man of her dreams. Their wed­ding day was in Jan­u­ary so, we were all curi­ous on how […]

Béatrice + Brendan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 4, 2019

This would be my third time trav­el­ling to Ottawa to shoot a wed­ding and I was stoked! I love the vibe of Ottawa. With its Eng­lish-French bilin­gual­ism, and the water run­ning in and around the city, it makes me feel like I’m in an offi­cial Cana­di­an city. I’m so grate­ful to that Béa­trice and Bren­dan […]

A Captured Moment with Alfie Vente

March 15, 2019

Prov­i­dence or the ben­e­fits of social media? I think the first that made for the lat­ter. Alfie and I haven’t seen each oth­er since almost 20 years with our mutu­al friends. It was only prov­i­dence that through a Face­book query, look­ing for pho­tog­ra­phers, that we would recon­nect. Alfie Vente, from Vente Pain Relief Clin­ic, was […]

J + L ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 12, 2018

When cre­atives get togeth­er, won­der­ful art out of life is made. These two artists, J. and L., gave me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to be just as cre­ative cap­tur­ing how they had planned their big day. Dur­ing our first meet­ing, we were talk­ing all about our expe­ri­ences in the fine arts pro­gram in uni­ver­si­ty and all I […]

Growing Miracles of Love with the Zarb Family

December 21, 2017

From engage­ment to wed­ding, from mater­ni­ty to first-born, Ash­ley and Joel have ush­ered me once again into the next phase of their lives … expect­ing no. 2! What a priv­i­lege it is to grow with clients whom I con­sid­er as friends. Since Isabel­la’s new­born ses­sion, I had only watched her grow through the won­der­ful images […]

About Face: Andrew Santos

October 16, 2017

Andrew and I go way back to chil­dren’s choir. Although I was a strap­ping 20-some­thing key­boardist help­ing out the choir, it was such a delight to hear Andrew can­tor and use his ener­gy to sing for the Lord amidst all the oth­er kid­dies. Now, he is a com­mu­ni­ca­tions coor­di­na­tor for the Arch­dio­cese of Toron­to and […]

Cherishing Precious Moments with The Meyer Family

September 8, 2017

You may rec­og­nize Aman­da and Daniel from two occa­sions: Brit­tany & Kyle’s wed­ding (where Aman­da was a brides­maid) and their anniver­sary pho­to­shoot. It had been some time since I had seen them in per­son yet it had been great to always keep in touch. Lo’ and behold, their beau­ti­ful mar­riage has grown into a fam­i­ly! […]
