Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… going to church, spending time on my spirituality, relaxing with my wife and baking delicious food! It’s always nice to be able to recharge for the week and focus on more personal items of my life.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… I’m originally from Canada and recently I was able to visit my hometown and also visit the national park Banff and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. It would be a dream to document a couple’s marriage there with all of its natural beauty.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… definitely Italy and specifically the Amalfi Coast. I love the way the mountain is layered with buildings and is surrounded by water!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… I love being able to create something that becomes a part of a couple’s life that they can remember. I also love exploring new places and being able to pull aspects of each location and culture into my work to create something unique for each client.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… either a chef or a physical therapist. I thought I wanted to go into the medical field in high school before I decided to pursue photography and videography. Cooking is also just a passion of mine (even though my food isn’t always the best)

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE…do whatever you and your significant other want to do;  not what your family or society tells you to do. Getting married is an important decision and is completely yours to make so do what you want!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… It’s always warm! That’s only one reason I love Arizona...it’s relatively close to California beaches (which I love to spend my days on) and has Mexican inspired food and culture which I adore.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE…  Hawaii would be a dream to live on because of how beautiful the islands are. I love the beach and ocean so being surrounded by it would complete me!

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? I could go on for days about my favourite movies but La La Land by Damien Chazelle is a movie that inspires me to follow my dreams and create amazing cinema!

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… I visited Brazil for a bit and they have a traditional dish of acai with fried chicken or fried fish. The acai was a creamy souplike consistency and was very sweet. When you combine the fried chicken/fish with the acai, it creates a whole new flavour and was the best meal I’ve ever had.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… currently none but I grew up with 4 pugs, a cat and a tortoise so I’m definitely an animal lover!
