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 […]

Janice + Reggie ~ The Knot Is Tied!

May 9, 2019

This wed­ding was like some­thing out of “Dirty Danc­ing” or per­haps “Dance with Me”, giv­en how Jan­ice and Reg­gie had met. The loca­tion … sal­sa dance class. As a result, their wed­ding end­ed up being quite an exquis­ite blend of enter­tain­ment, where their friends from the class­es had dis­played their tal­ents with a cou­ple chore­o­graphed […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ann-Marie + Ryan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

September 14, 2017

In the days lead­ing up to the wed­ding, I joked with Ann-Marie, “So what time do you want me to start? Six in the morn­ing? … haha! <nudge!><nudge!><wink!><wink!>” Ann-Marie: “Umm, yeah! Is that okay?” And when I real­ized that she was­n’t jok­ing, I took a deep breath and told myself: “I got this!” I was […]

Debbie + Jafari ~ The Knot Is Tied!

August 18, 2017

And ya kyant beet dat!” ~ Jafar­i’s Father (in his dis­tinct Jamaican accent) That phrase pret­ty much summed up the entire wed­ding day that Deb­bie and Jafari enjoyed and had been antic­i­pat­ing. You could­n’t beat how styl­ish these two were: the beau­ti­ful embroi­dered wed­ding dress with a vin­tage mesh veil and the fly suit with […]

About Face: Aniela

August 10, 2017

Aniela is such a tal­ent­ed mod­el, actress and yoga instruc­tor, that as much as it is a pho­tog­ra­pher’s job to make the client feel at ease, it was vice ver­sa on this ses­sion. Our shoot was casu­al and had a won­der­ful chat! With such a beau­ti­ful soul, it was all to easy to make each […]

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 […]

Welcome to the world, Evan James!

December 16, 2016

Evan = Fight­­er-Young War­ri­or-God is gra­cious / James = son of thun­der Tru­ly, the name could­n’t have been more per­fect for Evan James who arrived safe & sound, although a month ear­ly. For rea­sons unknown, he was grow­ing small and the best deci­sion by the O.B. was to have him “out” for clos­er and safer […]
