I’m a rain lover, grouse grind addict, tea snob and avid herbivore. On my days off I can be found running the seawall, swimming or at happy hour with the ladies. I try to take everything cute and furry home with me, including the little mice that I see in the train stations. I love helping others learn and teach post-secondary photography at a local college.
I’m originally from Northern Ontario (Sudbury) and spent a few years living in St Maarten before moving to Vancouver (Yaletown) where I live with my spouse. I studied at Laurentian University for my Bachelor of Fine Arts and Cambrian College for Digital Art. After graduating I worked for a few years as a Graphic Designer, Creative Director and Museum Curator before delving into photography full time.
My Style? I love mixing photojournalism with classic portraiture throughout the wedding day, resulting in an editorial style, similar to what is often seen in magazines. I pride myself on my no-nonsense attitude which is necessary when dealing with large groups of people. Formals go by quickly and the family members can enjoy mingling at the cocktail hour. I often have an assistant on shoots holding lighting or carrying my bags. I have an amazing team working with me; all of whom are handpicked and capable of assisting in the perfect capture of your wedding day memories.
