I’m so looking forward to Francesca and Marc’s wedding this February in Hamilton later this year, Winter weddings are so awesome just like this really cool couple! We had blast roaming around the distillery district and St. James Gardens earlier this fall to capture some really cool images of their engagement! I hope you enjoy!
Welcome to my blog!
I love people more than photography, the connections and friendships we build are the cornerstones to real emotional photography, regardless of the the subject matter.
I have been taking photos since I was 16, that's since 1987 I like most photographers my age first started printing black and whites in a darkroom before Photoshop I think that's the part I enjoyed the most and would spend hours in the dark room. About 7 years ago I started specializing in weddings; definitely the most challenging aspect of professional photography.
Today when I'm not behind the camera I'm talking with people; chatting about their lives, their weddings their future plans and just about the world in general. I really believe my clients are not buying photographs, they're looking for a photographer, a real relationship and a friendship, after all when their memories fade they will be refreshed not by just a picture but the context of how that picture was made.
I want to be friends first, and a photographer second, I strive to make my clients comfortable when we work together to capture real moments situated in the most flattering of environments.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada - PPOC and I am nationally accredited in Wedding Story I'm also a member of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. I have studied with and collaborated with incredible local and international photographers. I love weddings and wedding photography so much that I have dedicated myself to educating other photographers and continuing my learning process as a wedding photography instructor at Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario.
My approach to wedding photography is quite simple - emotion beats perfection every time period; and if you (brides) didn't want to look glamorous on your wedding day then why spend all of that dough on the goregous dress, hair and make up -- I want to make your bridal portraits look like you should be in a magazine! I really believe that when you're having a great time you'll look amazing and genuine in your photos.
I want to use this blog as a diary of my photographic adventures to showcase the real magic behind my work; my clients! I want you to see my most recent work to share thoughts on Photography and life in general regardless if you are a client of mine or not, and to show my style and work.
I hope you enjoy!
