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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. I actu­al­ly got to see her in action and work along­side her, as our mutu­al col­league and friend had hired her to make the wed­ding day […]

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 […]

A Day in the Life of the Garde-Ginis Family

September 29, 2017

As I was shoot­ing Krys­tiana & Ben’s wed­ding, one of her rel­a­tives had approached me, ask­ing about pho­tog­ra­phy. If you know me by now, I can go on-and-on about pho­tog­ra­phy and it’s great to chat with some­one who has a pro­found inter­est in mak­ing great images. Hav­ing seen that inter­est, Krys­tiana and Ben had bought […]

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 […]

You may rec­og­nize Aman­da and Daniel from two occa­sions: Brit­tany & Kyle’s wed­ding (where Aman­da was a brides­maid) and their anniver­sary pho­to­shoot. It had been some time since I had seen them in per­son yet it had been great to always keep in touch. Lo’ and behold, their beau­ti­ful mar­riage has grown into a fam­i­ly! […]
