A Captured Moment with Will Seaward

July 3, 2020

A lot of grad­u­ates will cer­tain­ly remem­ber this “COVID-19 year” giv­en that they weren’t able to cel­e­brate this mile­stone with their class­mates, teach­ers and fam­i­ly, in a “full” way. Yet, as par­ents, you would do any­thing you can to show how proud you are of your child, espe­cial­ly when the next aca­d­e­m­ic year will be […]

Leanna + Kishan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 24, 2020

When I think about my first meet­ing with Lean­na and Kis­han, it was tru­ly a fond mem­o­ry. Lean­na, after her work day, picked me up from the sub­way sta­tion (as my Uber … haha!). Then, we head­ed over to Kis­han’s apart­ment and we had such a chill, casu­al con­ver­sa­tion over a French-pressed cof­fee that Kis­han […]

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 […]

Fall”-ing for the Sunga Family

December 7, 2018

Where do I even begin with this fam­i­ly? JP and I had first known “of” each oth­er, through the cir­cle of musi­cian friends who loved to jam, record and song-write all for the love of music! Yet, once we actu­al­ly got togeth­er for a few col­la­bos, it was a friend­ship that was going to remain […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nhu + Greg ~ The Knot Is Tied!

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. In this case, Ian Liwanag (who is a pre­ferred DJ ven­dor at the Old Mill, Toron­to), had con­tact­ed me to inquire if I was avail­able for their wed­ding. After a Skype meet­ing with Erin, the rest was his­to­ry and I’m indebt­ed to Ian […]

Xander’s First Photoshoot ~ The Phillips Family

March 23, 2018

Steve and I go way back to high school days. He had (has) a deep appre­ci­a­tion for music — so much so he DJs — and the visu­al arts that he even bought a poster that we (the Visu­al Arts club) had made for one of our dances. Through the ben­e­fit of Face­book, we recon­nect­ed […]

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 a per­fect match whom I got to wit­ness and cap­ture as their wed­ding day unfold­ed. Their cer­e­mo­ny was bilin­gual: Eng­lish and Croa­t­ian, giv­en that it was also held […]

February 16, 2018

You already know how great Jen­nifer and Josh have been to me and I will be for­ev­er grate­ful for their friend­ship and giv­ing me the hon­our to cap­ture their life events. This one was anoth­er great ses­sion, now with Clark “the Shark” hav­ing turned the Big ONE! Boy, was he ever co-oper­a­­tive and just soo […]

Leanna + Kishan ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 1, 2018

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 […]

Tiffany + Sean ~ The Knot Is Tied!

January 23, 2018

Tiffany and Sean came to me through the refer­ral of a won­der­ful friend and tal­ent­ed indi­vid­ual, Ian Liwanag (who’s a pre­ferred DJ at The Old Mill, Toron­to). Even after hav­ing dropped my name it was so con­sid­er­ate of them to pur­sue and get in touch with me. Our inter­view through Skype brought a lot of […]

Brittany + Matt ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 15, 2018

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! Matt is actu­al­ly Cather­ine’s broth­er and it’s so great when ses­sions work like this, espe­cial­ly when fam­i­lies like his ush­er […]

Now We Are Three, A Fa-mi-ly ~ The Dunton Family

January 5, 2018

It’s so excit­ing to enter a home with new­­ly-made par­ents, as they pre­pare for their child’s first pho­to­shoot. Hav­ing gone through that process myself three times, I’m always intrigued to hear how the deliv­ery went and all the mem­o­rable cir­cum­stances that brought this mir­a­cle of life into the world. Aman­da and Jon were nat­u­ral­ly great first-time par­ents […]

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 Knot Is Tied!

December 12, 2017

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!

November 23, 2017

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! Know­ing that I’m a solo-pho­­tog­ra­ph­er, we planned it out that I would see her first. Spend­ing that first hour with her and the gals in excit­ed glee, I was able […]
