WHY DOES YOUR WEDDING EXPERIENCE MEAN SO MUCH TO ME?
My grandfather was a scientist, so he and my grandma traveled a lot during the early years of their marriage. A few years ago, I was going through boxes of old pictures at their house when I stumbled across an absolute gem — my favorite photo of them EVER. This particular shot was snapped during a field trip in Eastern Europe. They were visiting a zoo and posing next to a bear who was casually perched on a wooden stool.
And that’s when it hit me: I knew so little about these two amazing humans. They had already lived a whole life that they had never really spoken about. A life full of incredible adventures, experiences, and encounters. Things I would never know to ask about had I not taken the time to look through those boxes.
Photographs are magic. They allow people to connect with one another on an intimate level, offering us a new way to know our family and loved ones. They offer a glimpse of an eternal moment, a story held in time and told forever, yours to pass on through generations. A precious heirloom.
You deserve romantic wedding photography with this same spirit. My top priority as a wedding photographer is to capture that spirit fully and completely.
Raspberries, stationary, sunny days, music, my trusty orange beanie, the outdoors, all of the carbs, the sound of rain, mountains, the smell of old books.
My old beagle, the aurora borealis, the effortless charm of a European cafe, cozy spaces, road trips, the smell of the ocean, processing photos in a darkroom, coffee, black and white photography, my horse Alistair, collecting unexpected experiences, authentic wedding photography.
My people...and the couples I work with.
One of my greatest passions is faithfully capturing all the powerful emotions that accompany your wedding day in the form of timeless wedding photos. I love nothing more than hearing your stories, experiencing your bond, and having the honor of witnessing your love in its rawest form.
ways of living
On your wedding day, you stand hand-in-hand, surrounded by the love of your family and friends. As a luxury wedding photographer in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, the top priority is capturing all the powerful emotions and once-in-a-lifetime memories of your special day, from the laughter and tears to the sweet embraces and loving glances.
The most poignant love stories are the ones that embrace life’s adventures and encounter the authentic, the beautiful, the profound. Shared experiences allow us to express our deepest emotions in a genuine way, and my work eloquently documents couples during these moments.
With a documentary approach and an elevated, classic style, the focal points are on the real connections. There won’t be any rehearsed poses or the “perfect” staged shot — just be yourself. When you act naturally, that’s when you’ll create magical, romantic moments that translate into truly stunning wedding photography.
You focus on celebrating your enduring love, I’ll focus on capturing you at your best and in the most honest and beautiful way — ensuring that every moment is captured so you can relive the beauty of your special day for years to come.
“OUR photos are more than anything we could have wished for.”
"We are obsessed with our photos!!"
I have to tell you how much I've appreciated your sunny, positive attitude from the very beginning. It's one thing to be passionate and exceptional at what you do (which you are), but it's a whole other thing to be warm, supportive, and truly caring of your clients. I felt that right from the start. You sincerely cared about getting to know us, who we are individually and as a couple, and what we envisioned for our wedding day. It carried through to our engagement / doggy photoshoot (which we really cherish!) and all the way to the big day!
We felt zero pressure from your team. That meant a lot. Especially when when not everything went according to plan, you were so calm which made all the difference. We were then able to enjoy the rest of the night to the fullest, so thank you so much for getting us through that part.
We've been whishing to relive that day since we woke up the morning after, a nd you just gave us the opportunity to do so. I can't tell you how precious these photos are to us, both for capturing the best and most special day of our lives, but also moments with those who matter to us most.
The day went by so fast and we could hardly take in all that was going on around us. Now, we are able to enjoy each moment over and over again. For that, we are forever grateful.
You will always hold a special place in our hearts abd we can't thank you enough. There aren't enough words to describe how pleasant you were/are to work with.
Thank you thank you thank you!
