a few words from Tonya & David:

Your wedding day arrives so quickly, yet it seems like a lifetime to be created. Who will be that special person that becomes your wife or husband? Where will you get married? Plus all the details in-between, from flowers to colours to guest favours.

Then finally your wedding day arrives and goes by at light speed. Every moment seems surreal as you realize that the day is upon you. It starts to sink in as you see the smiling faces in the Church and you realize that everyone is there that day for two people, to celebrate their love and their decision to spend the rest of their lives together. With a blink you are listening to the wonderful speeches and anecdotes at the reception, but through it all, all you can think about is the beautiful person who is right next to you.

After the wedding had come and all the details were over in a flash, I wanted to believe that my wedding day was as beautiful as I hoped it would be. That is the time that we received our proofs from Gabe. We were blown away at how Gabe captured each memory of the day. Gabe’s photos made our wedding look like it was out of a magazine. The professionalism of Gabe’s work is undeniable. Through his lens, he captured the raw emotion, the imagery and the feeling of the moment. His photos tell a timeless story of love and beauty. As we look back through our photos of our wedding day, we can literally relive each moment from the smile from our grandmothers to the tears during each speech. Gabe’s touch brings out each detail and makes us believe that we had the most amazing, beautiful wedding. These same feelings flood from all his weddings: the love, the connection and the timelessness.

More than just a photographer, Gabe has become a friend. His approach to photography is more than just a job or the way to make a living. Gabe truly took the time to get to know us right from the start, so that he could understand the style that matched our personalities and our love. His understated approach ensures spontaneity in each photo, yet his creativity allows personality to blaze through. At our ‘Connection’ session, Gabe made us laugh so many times and as a result we were relaxed and just ‘us’, rather than looking posed and identical to so many other couples.

I can’t say enough how thrilled we are with our decision to choose Gabe as our wedding photographer. We are always proud to show-off our wedding photos and love flipping through them to remember the day and look forward to having Gabe capture the next milestone in our lives.
