“I’ll take architecture over greenery any day,” she said. Mission accomplished! This Malaparte wedding was a downtown Toronto dream. Josh and Ashlee, what can I say? Everything about this day fills me with such joy. Your attention to detail and appreciation for the finer things in life make me and my camera happy. Your kindness […]

I’ve lost track, but I’ve shot somewhere around 130 weddings. Of those 130, 129 of my clients have been so, so amazing. I’ve cherished being able to capture their memories for them, and have even made a few friends along the way. But then, there’s the 1. In recent days, I had to make some […]

I love first looks. They’re such a lovely way for couples to see each other for the first time on their wedding day, have a private moment, and bask in each other’s love. If you’re asking ourself, “Um, what’s a first look?” It’s when couples opt to see each other for the first time before […]

Unless you’ve taken a social media hiatus in the last week, you have likely seen dozens of women post “Me Too” on their Facebook feeds. In an action of solidarity with fellow women (and men) who have encountered sexual harassment or assault, the campaign has raised awareness and sparked many conversations about an important, relevant […]

When I first started, the only lens I owned was my trusty 18-55mm kit lens. Was it great? No. But it did the trick for a while. As I started to broaden my photography horizons, it just just didn’t cut it anymore. Since, I’ve learned a lot about what lenses are appropriate for certain situations on […]

What happens when you get a drop dead gorgeous couple, a lovely early fall day, a stunning bridal party, loving families, and lots of champagne? Beauty happens. Sarah and Jeff, I wish you could marry each other over and over again so I could capture it every time. ♦
