Amy and Alan are the kind of people that I love getting to know; fun loving, quirky, romantic, and easygoing. They held a beautiful Great Gatsby-inspired wedding at the Museum of Nature and Sala San Marco last summer and I was very excited to photograph their big day. It was a real pleasure to get to know them and photograph their engagement session and wedding. Their images are presented in black and white because I felt it complimented there timeless and intimate qualities.

Danielle and Joey treated their family and friends to an emotional wedding ceremony at the Merrickville United Church and a great reception at the Brookstreet Hotel in Ottawa. The day was full of laughter, romance, stupid human tricks, and of course a great party. I photographed Danielle a few times in her aspiring modelling days and was very happy to get called in for their big day. I also photographed Joey’s aunt, Elizabeth Manley for the Globe and Mail, a few years ago, so I wasn’t a stranger to that side of the family either. It was a day I was excited to be a part of!

Kristen and Philip’s wedding at Hotel Quintessence in Mont Tremblant was a thing of beauty. Not only were they a beautiful couple, but when you add a luxury hotel, a quaint wedding chapel, a popular mountain-side destination, and amazing wedding decor and flowers, you get an event that is a photographers dream.

Kate and DJ’s wedding at the Thompson Hotel in Toronto was amazing – easily one my favourite weddings to be a part of. Kate is the daughter of a photo editor at the Globe and Mail and I was honoured to be trusted with this wedding. Kate talks sports and gadgets on CTV shows like The Social, and DJ works as a host/reporter for Sportsnet, so they were both pretty comfortable with a camera in their personal space. The girls got ready in the “ballers suite” at the Thompson and the guys got fresh cuts and shaves at The Fitting Room barber shop. Their ceremony was held at a sweet church called Little Trinity church where Kate was surprised by a full gospel choir coming out to sing at the end of the ceremony – rom-com level surprised! Thompson Hotel was a great spot to throw a party – I mean, if it’s good enough for LeBron and Drake… Kate and DJ’s family and friends definitely felt the love at this one.
