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 […]

K.D. + A.L. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 2, 2017

Com­ing down to the last cou­ple of friends from the Catholic Chap­lain­cy at York Uni­ver­si­ty, Karen had intro­duced me to her fiancé, Allis­ter, at our meet­ing dis­cussing their upcom­ing wed­ding. It was excit­ing to see anoth­er friend accept­ing her voca­tion in mar­riage and only to com­plete it with a great car­ing part­ner for life. The day […]

K.C. + C.C. ~ The Knot Is Tied

May 5, 2016

The wed­ding day had final­ly arrived and it was noth­ing short of emo­tion­al. As tim­ing would have it, Chris and his fam­i­ly had lost a very dear fam­i­ly mem­ber so close to the wed­ding that tears shed were both filled with sad­ness and joy. I am in utmost admi­ra­tion of how Karen and Chris had car­ried them­selves throughout […]

A Day in a Life of Emery

July 23, 2015

This was the funnest, most cre­ative fam­i­ly ses­sion yet. Edgar and I go way back…high school. He was a grade old­er, yet being both in the visu­al arts streams, he was tru­ly some­one I looked up to (and not because he was any­where near taller than me *inside j/k!*!). From his draw­ings to his paintings […]

J.M. + S.P. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

October 2, 2014

I had known Jes­si­ca since I had joined the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to Gospel Choir back in 2003. Not only did we con­nect on a Fil­ipino lev­el, her bright per­son­al­i­ty just uplifts any­one she meets. And to match that sun­shine, why not add anoth­er large reflec­tor to spread that joy around (sor­ry, pho­tog­ra­ph­er nerd-speak). I only […]

A.C. + J.Z. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

May 24, 2014

I remem­ber play­ing “hus­band and wife” with friend-girls when I was a child. Although it was make-belief, who would have thought that the imag­i­na­tion would become real­i­ty for Ash­ley and Joel. From an autumn engage­ment ses­sion to a “pre-autumn” wed­ding, these two had reunit­ed from being friends since they were chil­dren to being mar­ried. The […]
