I am a wedding photographer based in Toronto, Canada serving joyful couples! My goal is to tell your love story by capturing genuine emotions of joy, love, and laughter, through an ELEVATED EXPERIENCE you will never forget!
I was never planning on becoming a photographer - I studied Computer Science at Ryerson University and was planning on becoming a software developer. Around the time I started university, I bought a dslr camera to take photos for fun, and I immediately fell in love with photography. I just couldn't put my camera down! I started taking photography classes in the evenings (after my Computer Science classes during the day), and from posting my photos on instagram, I started getting interest from people who wanted to book shoots! That's how my business started!
During a summer job in software developing, I came to the realization that a 9-5 job wasn't for me - it just didn't light me up! Instead my heart wanted to photograph love stories and work for myself. So when I graduated from university, I took my wedding photography business full time and I haven't looked back!
I married husband Mustafa in August of 2017 and our wedding was white and gold themed with lots of florals!
Most days you'll find me doing yoga, reading, watching Greys Anatomy, or hanging out at Starbucks! It might be my second home!
Ever since my husband and I moved into our first home, I fell in love with home decorating and have a slight obsession with HomeSense.
My ideal meal consists of sushi, cheesecake, and bubble tea!
Through seeing my siblings and friends get married, I realized there was a need in the wedding industry for photographers that provided an amazing EXPERIENCE for couples on top of just taking beautiful photos!
I love being there to help you through every step of the wedding planning process. I will make the process of choosing your engagement session outfits and locations a breeze, help you put together a photography-friendly wedding day timeline, and make sure you receive your photos in a timely manner after your wedding!
My favourite part of what I do is getting to know my couples on a personal level! I like learning about the story of how you met and getting to know your personalities. This will help me make your images more personal to you! I've found the more comfortable my couples feel with me, the more natural they look in their photos!
