Ottawa Wedding and Portrait Photography
I’ve literally spent my entire life as a creative. It all began in early childhood, where my love of the arts would lead to my audition and acceptance into the specialized Arts Canterbury program for visual arts: an experience which changed my life more than I could have imagined, because it’s where I met my wife! I began my early career studying graphic arts at Algonquin College, where I earned my Diploma with Honours in Print Media and received the Highest Achievement Award in Graphic Arts. Working in commercial print houses would ultimately nurture the technical foundations which I now employ in my photography, and helped to instill in me an appreciation for the printed image.
In 2011, the same year our first daughter was born, my wife and I photographed our first wedding together; and so, at the same time that we embarked on the adventure of being parents, so too would I begin my new career as a portrait and wedding photographer. I’ve since graduated with honours from the Algonquin Photography program, one of the top commercial photography schools in Canada. At the 42nd Annual Algonquin Photography Exhibition I received the distinction of winning both the Slik Best Image in Show Award and the Henry’s Award for Best Portfolio.
As a visual storyteller my passion is capturing real moments and genuine emotions through my photography. It was the experience of getting married and starting a family which made me truly understand the importance of having photographs in print. As treasured heirlooms, these memories deserve to be seen and appreciated; and every image I create is done with this consideration.
I look forward to meeting you and photographing your special moments.
