I'm a photographer, and this blog is all about sharing my work. Through the images presented here I hope you'll experience the fun, energy, honesty and emotion I have been entrusted to document.

I specialize in the photography of family history because I love to create memorable images of real life, both for you and for your entire family. If that sounds interesting, drop me a line. I’d love to talk with you.

Until then, welcome.


TV Interview on The Ottawa Experts

I’m famous!

Well, not really. But I feel famous :)

I had the pleasure of joining Floralove Katz on the Rogers local cable TV show The Ottawa Experts to talk about wedding photography. I share some of my best wedding photography tips, thoughts on weddings in general and talk about style.

Waiting to go on I was pretty nervous but once I got into the chair, everything went pretty well I think. It’s always strange to see and hear yourself though isn’t it?

I’d love to know what you think too! And feel free to ask any questions you may have, and I’ll answer them for you here.


Jenn + Mark: Engaged!

Lise + Fred

An entry about Weddings

I had the great honour to photograph the wedding of my Aunt Lise on a warm spring day in Picton, Ontario. Her closest friends and family were in attendance with some of the fanciest hats I’ve yet seen. Nice job ladies!

Connie + Kyle

Connie and Kyle both live in California, but they came back to Ottawa to celebrate with friends and family for the wedding. They picked a beautiful venue and basically took over the place with the huge crowd. There was so much going on I was constantly on the move. Congratulations!

A Year in the Life of Ianto, Session Four

An entry about Portraits, tagged as

For Ianto’s fourth session, we returned to the scene of the crime…this little stretch of forest is where Bee, Shawn and I went for the portraits after their wedding ceremony 7 years ago. It was a little warmer this time and we took full advantage of the warm sunlight.
