Cinema Italiano

"I love the black & white
I love the play of light
His angles wide & tight
Each moment feels so right
Defines Italian style by only his decision
I love the speedy little cars the hip coffee bars the sleek women in Positano"
~ Lyrics to "Cinema Italiano" from the movie Nine

Walkabout: Toronto

Last week I was in Toronto visiting friends and family. I had a chance to walk around some of my favourite neighbourhoods.

Kensington Market: I used to live near here when I was a student at the University of Toronto, and Sunday afternoon strolls to pick up fruit, veggies and cheese were common. I haven't been here in probably 15 years, so it was good to see that many of the classic shops are still there (like Cheese Magic and Courage my Love).

Chinatown - the place to go for happy meat and dumplings:

Centre Island: Whoa. Did I have major flashbacks to my childhood while visiting the island. This place is a 70s time capsule.

Gracia + Peru | Montreal Wedding Photographer

Gracia and Peru were guests at a wedding that I photographed last summer. They contacted me recently for a one-year anniversary shoot. I was thrilled they chose me as their photographer to mark this special occasion. Here are a few of my favorite photographs from that day.

Quando piove a Venezia (When it rains in Venice)

It was a much cooler and much rainier May than is usual for Italy. But Venice is imbued with such a wonderful atmosphere when it rains, and I thoroughly enjoyed wandering the wet city streets armed with my umbrella and my camera.

One day, I was caught in a heavy downpour under the awning of a cafe. The owner graciously invited me in for a free espresso to wait out the rain. Thank you Italy for such a lovely time.
