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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Erin + Jonathan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

February 15, 2019

For a cou­ple of indi­vid­u­als who serve our coun­try, it was an hon­our and priv­i­lege to serve them. The wed­ding day had final­ly arrived and it began with snow falling down ever so beau­ti­ful­ly. Both Erin and Jonathan got ready at the hotel at The Old Mill, so it was easy to manoeu­vre between rooms […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

S.K. + N.S. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

May 1, 2017

This was a first for me (and per­haps most of Shazia & Nor­man’s guests): an Irish-Ismaili Mus­lim wed­ding. Shazia and I had first met at Man­dana and Daniel’s wed­ding and I remem­ber her being a won­der­ful and gen­tle soul sin­cere­ly per­form­ing her duties as a brides­maid. When she had con­tact­ed me announc­ing that she was […]
