Michelle + Oliver ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

August 31, 2018

Today, my baby broth­er gets mar­ried. “Baby broth­er” tru­ly describes us well because (a) he’s my only broth­er; and (b) he was born when I was a strap­ping 12-year old. I’ve cer­tain­ly seen him grow through all the years. For sure there was that awk­ward ado­les­cent stage where our inter­ests col­lid­ed (he liked Weird Al’ […]

Angela + Aaron ~ The Knot Is Tied!

June 14, 2018

This was an A++ wed­ding because, it was Angela & Aaron’s. (Sor­ry, bad dad-pun-joke!) Since our first meet­ing, we nat­u­ral­ly got along and enjoyed talk­ing about wed­ding details and the Rap­tors (’twas the sea­son). And even though they booked me well in advance, catch­ing up with them through emails was like catch­ing up with long-time […]

May 10, 2018

When Nhu & Greg con­tact­ed me to cap­ture their wed­ding, I was tru­ly hon­oured. You see, Greg is the broth­er of Trish who is the wife of Cale whom I first met back at my old parish, Prince of Peace R.C. Church (when Cale was the pas­to­r­i­al assis­tant, then). Neat, huh? So now that you […]

Erin + John ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

April 12, 2018

Meet­ing Erin & John was a result of friends sup­port­ing each oth­er.

Maja + Edward ~ The Knot Is Tied!

March 2, 2018

What a cel­e­bra­tion this was! Maja, who I’ve known since my first involve­ment with the Catholic Chap­lain­cy at York Uni­ver­si­ty, had found her prince charm­ing, Edward.

What can I say about these two? Ah-dor-a-ble! From the moment they had me over at Kis­han’s place for our first meet­ing and being “ubered” by Lean­na who was on her way over from work, it was such a great time spent get­ting to know this Romeo & Juli­ette. Talk­ing about how they met, the […]

They had seen me at work at Cather­ine & Matthew’s wed­ding and good thing I was on my best behav­iour (LOL!) because Brit­tany & Matt, end­ed up giv­ing me the hon­our to cov­er their wed­ding!

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!

It was a win­ter wed­ding, actu­al­ly the first of three that I had that month. Yet, what a wed­ding for me to start the year off with! Cinthia and Michael planned it so well, we even had a won­der­ful spot of sun­shine and got to take some pho­tos out­side. I also got to cel­e­brate it with […]

Catherine + Matthew ~ The Knot Is Tied!

Being a wed­ding co-ordi­­na­­tor her­self, Cather­ine had just planned a flu­id wed­ding day that both her and Matthew would enjoy. And it was just that!

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, […]

Catherine + Matthew ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

October 19, 2017

We had chat­ted a lot about wed­dings, as Cather­ine got her cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in wed­ding plan­ning, and it was fun to talk about our expe­ri­ences of wed­dings we’ve been to.

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 […]

August 30, 2017

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s always hum­bling when a peer of yours has faith in your craft and wants you to cap­ture her wed­ding. Even before that, Ann-Marie was so gra­cious to pur­chase ses­sions from me to give as presents for her friends. As a result, I had met many […]

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 […]

It had been almost a year since we had our ini­tial meet­ing when Deb­bie & Jafari, “signed” with me. So, see­ing them again dur­ing this engage­ment ses­sion was like a reunion!

Krystiana & Ben ~ The Knot Is Tied!

June 22, 2017

What can I say about these two love birds? Ele­men­tary school sweet-hearts, youth min­is­ters, faith-dri­ven and über cute togeth­er! Hav­ing known them through church in our parish, it was very hum­bling to have been asked to cap­ture their “Yes!” to God’s call in their voca­tion of mar­riage and to wit­ness them vow to each oth­er through […]
