  • about me

    As a life photographer, I use photography as a way to expand, connect and create. I especially revel in covering important life experiences, including weddings, relationships, and achievements. For my clients and subjects, this means what we do is real, and fun.

    I love to tell photo-stories from all over the world, which has lead to me to shoot destination weddings in India, Brazil, Israel, Mexico, Curacao, Costa Rica and the US. As well, I am committed to documenting humanitarian projects, such as important initiatives in Kenya, Tanzania, India and Rwanda. My photos from the HBO documentary of the first interracial prom in Charleston Mississippi, have been published internationally, including Seventeen Magazine, O Magazine, The National Post, and The Globe and Mail.

    For me, photography of people is the capturing of their essence, and sharing back what I saw and felt. Wherever, and whomever they are. Everywhere and anywhere.

Guerrilla Style

When do you have a chance to go to Niagara-On-The-Lake for a wedding on a beautiful sunny day, explore, and take beautiful portraits at your whim?  Despite what you might think is a typical photographer’s day, it’s not often!   A situation like this takes an open amount of time, an open mind, and blind trust with a belief that the locations will present themselves along the way.  Then you set off!  It also takes the right people — no question about that.  People who are willing to randomly stop the car, get out, and play.

Those people are definitely Gina + Andrew and their friends.  And play we did!

Thank you for all the fun, and the adventure.  xoxo

Green Goddess in Awesometown

In 2009, the infamous Nutritionista Meghan Telpner wrote a comment on my blog that said, “ When one day soon, I can afford to do it, I wanna get you to shoot my special day. It may not be a wedding, may not be anything really- but I think that with your amazingness, you could find beauty, grace, quirks and creativity in just plain old magical life. You are a one of a kind talent!”  Over the three years, we have had many opportunities to work together, most recently my exciting opportunity to photograph for her upcoming cook book, “The UnDiet” (coming out across North America in December! Ya!)

More exciting than the Meghan-Catherine love-in, is that Meghan’s special day finally arrived.  And I had the privilege of photographing this wonderful day where she married her love, Josh.  And they are, pretty much, the most fun-loving, enviro-health-life-loving couple, you can imagine.  Their sense of fun is infectious, so their marriage was pretty much the greatest reason to celebrate.

I’ve put together a slideshow of some of the highlights from the occasion.   To enjoy properly without buffering, please press pause AFTER you press play.  Let the show load.  THEN press play again. (Special thanks to my favourite local star, Treasa Levassear for the use of her much loved song, “The Rest of the Ride.”   **Note : This slideshow can only be played on computers.  No i-Anythings***

Love you guys. xoxoxo

for the busy moms out there

I had the pleasure of photographing Angela and her new baby Aubrey last month.  Yesterday I got a message from Angela saying that every time she tries to really look through the photos, she either gets interrupted by Aubrey, or take that much anticipated shower.  So, to make it easier for her, I am making this blog post of my favourite shots from the shoot.  Here Angela, here are 6 — now go shower!
