J.D. + C.D. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

March 31, 2017

They were plan­ning for “small and inti­mate” and so their wed­ding day was just that. At St. John Vian­ney R.C. Church in Bar­rie, a num­ber of close friends joined their imme­di­ate fam­i­lies attend­ed Judy and Chris’ wed­ding. It was serene and peace­ful and per­fect for them both. There­after, we trav­eled to the lakeshore to con­tin­ue on with […]

J.D. + C.D. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

March 24, 2017

I was graced to hear from this cute cou­ple when I had already booked Judy’s cous­in’s wed­ding before­hand. Then, we had arranged for our first meet’n’­greet and got to meet her fiancé, Chef Chris. You got that right! Judy got her­self a cookin’ hus­band. They were so cute to chat with and I was excited […]

B.B. + A.W. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

March 9, 2017

I guess you could call this one of my des­ti­na­tion wed­dings, as I had to trav­el “all the way” to Strat­ford for Brit­tany and Alex’s wed­ding. What a beau­ti­ful roman­tic back­drop to cel­e­brate a wed­ding. It brings me back to the days my wife and I were dat­ing and enjoy­ing the Shake­speare­an the­atre and the […]

B.B. + A.W. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

February 27, 2017

Once again, this engage­ment ses­sion could­n’t have been pos­si­ble with­out the gen­eros­i­ty and thought­ful­ness of my UTGC choir-mate, Ash­ley — who in the past had bought ses­sions as gifts for her good friends: Maris­sa & Basel, Man­dana & Daniel, Vaughn & Saman­tha. And with each ses­sion, I’ve met just as won­der­ful peo­ple as she continues […]

K.D. + A.L. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

February 10, 2017

As the first wed­ding of that year, this was the one to start with. Every­thing ran smooth­ly, there was­n’t a feel­ing of being rushed, there was ample time to enjoy and ban­ter around and most of all, to wit­ness Karen & Allis­ter’s vows, was the icing on the cake. Both of them were orga­nized to […]

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 […]

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 […]

T.A. + D.S. ~ The Answer Is “Yes!”

January 9, 2017

At the office, Taryn and I had always enjoyed a quick chat about one of the wed­dings she either attend­ed or was part of as a brides­maid in exchange for an anec­dote (or two) about the wed­dings I had cov­ered. The time had come that it was Taryn’s turn to be in the spot­light as a bride, […]

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 […]

K.D. + K.G. ~ preWedding Reception

December 1, 2016

Kim and Kevin were all too thought­ful for the fam­i­ly and friends here “at home”, as they threw a preWed­ding recep­tion just a few days before their des­ti­na­tion wed­ding in Jamaica. In actu­al­i­ty, there were TWO recep­tions, both at the same venue: The Rich­mond. It was neat to see the trans­for­ma­tion from the lun­cheon (which […]

Québec City, Québec (Canada) 2016

October 13, 2016

I was real­ly fine. I final­ly got my full-frame sys­tem down: Canon 6D + Sig­ma Art lens­es. I felt com­plete. And then my good friend, Ryan James Savin, had tak­en me on a crazy detour! He asks, “Have you ever tried the Fuji line?”. Hog­wash, I ini­tial­ly thought. How could that crop-sen­­sor mir­ror­less cam­era com­pare to […]

N.C + R.C. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 6, 2016

From an autumn engage­ment ses­sion to a sum­mer wed­ding, Nik­ki and Ryan were both lucky have the rain evade those days. Yet being over­cast made for beau­ti­ful light­ing for their out­door wed­ding at Cave Springs Vine­yard. Because the cer­e­mo­ny was there, it was only fit­ting to con­tin­ue the recep­tion at the Inn on the Twen­ty in […]
