"Exceeding our client's expectations"

"Attention to detail and commitment to excellence are reflected in our wedding day images and designs..."

We are so honoured to be a part of your special day, and our goal is to create unique, intimate portraits that you will cherish for the rest of your lives.

Your wedding is the most unforgettable day of your life…….A realization of the dreams held ever since childhood…..Each moment of your special day is precious-every memory deserves to be captured.

It is our intent to capture the whole marriage experience, from the romance of the Engagement, and the beauty of the Bride as she wears her dress in public for the first time, to the sanctity of the Wedding Ceremony itself and the joyous Reception Celebration afterwards.

Though your wedding will be over in one short day, your memories will last a lifetime. Over time these creative wedding day images become valued possession, as they trigger the feelings and happenings of that special day and provide a record of all those who were a part of it.

Attached are some Wedding portraits. We will meet with you and discuss the details of your wedding day and will capture those precious moments throughout and build a story like no other. We take our job and your wedding very seriously. We take tremendous pride in our professionalism and go to great lengths to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible. We work closely with you to ensure that the portraits taken reflect your individuality, and help you feel at ease, so you can concentrate on enjoying your special day.

We have 5 package options available for you, starting at $1,250.00 (taxes not included).

“Patience and timing is what it’s all about”

Time passes, families grow…..Portraits are Forever.

Allow us to capture your family portrait with either and environmental location or in the privacy of your own home. Our goal is to photograph you and your family in natural setting that reflects your style. In our "Planning Session" we discuss your ideas and with my experience and technical excellence will come up with a one of a kind portrait that will be precious and timeless. As children grow up and move away these images become more cherished. Our goal is to create a portrait which shows the bonds of family and love. Let us capture that special image to be treasured forever.

As everyone knows children have many expressions and timing is the essential ingredient when photographing children. We have fun making portraits together. No matter what age your child or grandchild is we can create a memorable portrait. May it be a storyboard or that special "Watch me grow" portrait for your home.

Remember that whether it be family or children portraits they will be treasured for years and generations to come, trust them only to a professional.
