Andria and Dimitri's wedding was a day filled with love and joy, when two cultures merged together in a beautiful celebration of their union. Their love story, which began as high school sweethearts, was one that warmed the hearts of everyone in attendance.
The Old Montreal provided the perfect setting for their couple's session and first look. Amidst the cobblestone streets and historic architecture of the city, they shared intimate moments, creating memories that will last a lifetime. And their visit to Café Olympico was a beautiful homage to the moment that started it all: Dimitri's proposal to Andria.
Their ceremony took place in a Greek Orthodox Church in Montreal, where the couple exchanged heartfelt vows, sealing their love for each other. The moment was made even more special with the presence of their closest friends and family, who witnessed the beauty of their union.
The Embassy Plaza was transformed into a vibrant celebration of their heritage, where every detail was carefully curated to honor their Italian and Greek cultures. The night was filled with music, laughter, and celebration, creating an atmosphere that was infectious with joy and happiness.
As Anna Gavalda would say, "Happiness is not in having or being. It is in the process of becoming." Andria and Dimitri's wedding was a beautiful example of this, as they became one in the most loving and heartwarming way possible. It was a day that will be cherished forever–a celebration of love, culture, and the power of two hearts coming together.

A curated selection of my favourite imagery
of this ethereal day.
“We were so happy with how it all flowed, and felt so reassured that we wouldn't be too rushed for photos because of her experience and expertise. That was a real gift.”
"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!
