Simon approaches weddings like a filmmaker by looking for the most desirable light and backdrops and then placing couples in these environments and allowing them to be spontaneous and affectionate with one other. Simon believes this makes for authentic interactions which always translate into great images. When couples are posed in a rigid and unnatural way, he finds it stifles their personalities and rarely reflects the joyous nature of a wedding celebration, or their genuine selves. Also, because of his documentary style of photography, Simon captures many special moments that may otherwise go unnoticed throughout the day.
It is important to Simon that he meets the couple to understand what their needs are and what they're looking to achieve on their wedding day. All wedding packages include a two hour engagement shoot, where Simon and the couple have the opportunity to get to know one another and prepare for the wedding by getting the couple comfortable in front of the camera.

Simon was the photographer for our August 2017 wedding. We came across his work when it was featured in the Toronto Star as part of a story about a couple's backyard wedding. We loved his editorial style and reached out to him to learn more.
We are so glad we did, because Simon is a true professional, and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. If you're looking for wedding photos that aren't cheesy or over-the-top, and capture the real essence of you as a couple, then Simon is the photographer for you. We will always cherish the photos he took, and wouldn't hesitate to book him again in the future.Sent on 08/01/2018

A cool and collected photographer that strives to capture authentic and creative moments.
Simon's cool and collected vibe is part of what makes him an excellent person to work with on your wedding day. Weddings are inevitably hectic and stressful ordeals, so Simon's calm demeanor is absolutely vital towards producing a set of photos where the bride and groom appear equally calm, allowing for the best possible photos to be captured.Sent on 06/02/2018
After an initial in-person meeting, Simon scheduled an engagement session with us to be shot in parts of our own neighbourhood. We appreciated this as it allowed us to capture our lives in that particular moment in time, including the places we visit on a daily basis.
We told Simon early on that we thought we'd make poor clients since we had a hard time keeping a straight face near each other, and often made each other laugh. Simon embraced this fact rather than trying to mask it. He has one of those eyes for photography that make his shots so well composed, directing us to duck into alleyways, building openings, and small passageways. The resulting photos were creative, artistic, and professional, while allowing our real personalities to shine through - laughing faces and all.
We had that same amazing experience on the wedding day. I'm still amazed at how much happened in such a short period of time, and equally amazed Simon successfully captured it all. Our wedding day was set in the near opposite setting of our engagement shoot, being in a plush forest rather than our gritty neighbourhood. Simon's versatility as a photographer means he found the right setting, light, and feeling to match the surrounding scenes.
Similar to our engagement shoot, Simon embraced our real personalities. This is part of what makes his work so endearing. He captures you as the best possible version of your authentic selves. I appreciated not having a set of photos with us standing in rigid poses, as anyone who knows us would immediately recognize it as unnatural.
After received our photos from Simon, I joked with him that I already knew my wife is beautiful, but didn't know I could be beautiful too! :) Even after our wedding, we still take pleasure in being amazed at Simon's work on other weddings. He is a talented photographer, and his positive and reassuring style is a perfect complement to the busy schedule of your wedding day.
We would absolutely recommend booking with Simon for a wedding, engagement shoot, family shoot, or even a set of beautiful individual portraits.

Best Wedding Photographer!
We were thrilled with the experience! The photos were perfect and we loved them.Sent on 19/08/2019
He was an amazing person to work with. On the day he was very relaxed - to me this made a massive difference. During the photos I was happy and enjoying myself (I normally hate getting my photo taken). When he took candid photos at the wedding I didn't even notice him snapping great shots! Also - we got all the key shots we wanted. It felt like one of your friends was taking your photo (but obviously it turned out way better).
Before and after the wedding he was very responsive and helped us through the entire process. His price was also better than a lot of the other photographers we looked at.
I would 1000000% recommend Simon as a wedding photographer. The most important thing to my husband and I was how seamless our interactions were with him on the day - on a day with so much going on it was great to have a vendor who was professional and didn't need any assistance from us!

Summer Engagement & Winter Wedding Photography
Simon captured our winter wedding perfectly. His professionalism and laid back nature made us and our guests feel at ease, allowing him to capture incredible moments from our small, intimate wedding. We couldn’t be happier with the results, and would highly recommend you work with him for your special occasion. He is extremely accommodating and personable and the quality of his work speaks for itself. Thank you again, Simon!Sent on 14/06/2019
