Wedding Photography for couples with rebellious hearts

I grew up in Toronto's Dufferin Grove area, born to a Jewish Canadian mother and Italian American father. My passion for photography started young, developing my precious pictures in my high school dark room and at the 24hr photo lab at Shoppers Drug Mart.

I spent my summers on canoe trips in Canada's beautiful wilderness, tucking away rolls of film in my dry sack, and playing dress up with my friends for spontaneous city photoshoots. I was always trying to convince my friends (and boyfriends) to put on ridiculous outfits I scored from Value Village so I could take their picture!

One time I flew to the Caribbean and lived on a permaculture organic farm + community. I got the nickname Mama Fruits because I took care of (and snacked on) tropical fruit orchards, and...this is why I now have 2 pineapple tattoos.

I've been working as a Photographer for the last 10 years. My technical knowledge + eye for the action was trained while photographing events + parties full time for magazines. I have photographed 30+ weddings, and my first wedding was a Studio 54 disco-theme on NYE! Burn, baby, burn.

I can pick up the energy in a room, always ready with my camera pointed towards candid moments. These days I live in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood, and travel to tropical places for yoga retreats annually. My zodiac sign is Cancer if it matters to you!
