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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

A Day in the Life of the Garde-Ginis Family

September 29, 2017

As I was shoot­ing Krys­tiana & Ben’s wed­ding, one of her rel­a­tives had approached me, ask­ing about pho­tog­ra­phy. If you know me by now, I can go on-and-on about pho­tog­ra­phy and it’s great to chat with some­one who has a pro­found inter­est in mak­ing great images. Hav­ing seen that inter­est, Krys­tiana and Ben had bought […]

You may rec­og­nize Aman­da and Daniel from two occa­sions: Brit­tany & Kyle’s wed­ding (where Aman­da was a brides­maid) and their anniver­sary pho­to­shoot.

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Gubisi Family

April 6, 2017

When word gets around the office that I have a pho­tog­ra­phy side-gig, it’s a great rumor to be spread­ing! Hehe! My col­league, Car­ol, has always radi­at­ed her smile around the office and I was hum­bled when she asked me to cap­ture the smiles of the rest of her fam­i­ly! After our first son was born, […]

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 […]
