I have been photographing weddings, families, children and events for over two decades and after so many years, I still look forward to meeting new people and creating emotional art for them.
I started out photographing family and friends while studying photography through continuing education courses at Niagara College. Over the years I have photographed countless weddings giving me the opportunity to create a style of photography that is timeless and unique.
One of the most important parts of my job is to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera. My passion and excitement are contagious and this transcends through my time spent with couples and families, and into the finished product.
I am the recipient of the 2008 Niagara’s Favourite Photographer and the 2011 Forty Under Forty Award, but my greatest accolades are the referrals I receive from all the amazing clients I have served throughout the years.
Michelle joined me as an aspiring photographer in 2009 and the rest is history!
There is no limit to where we travel to on your wedding day. We typically visit the venues where the bride and groom are getting ready, the ceremony, wedding photo location and the reception venue. Sometimes travelling to several different spots can take precious time away from photos, however, I always meet with the couple prior to the ceremony to discuss details and timelines.
The amount of photos taken will depend on the length of time included in the wedding package. Michelle and I work together to capture the planned photos as well as constantly being on the lookout for candid photo opportunities throughout the day.
Yes and yes. After the wedding, I select several hundred of the best images and edit them including any special requests that a couple might have. I usually have everything ready 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding and present the bride and groom with a USB containing the edited images in a folder and all the unedited images in a separate folder.
I have several areas I like to use for engagement photos, however I love new ideas and am always inspired by interesting suggestions. There are many beautiful spots in Niagara.
Recently, we have started shooting various video clips throughout the day and creating short videos for our wedding couples. They have been very popular and can be added to any package.
