"Photography has always held a special place in my heart. At the age of 18, I received my first DSLR camera, and from that moment on, it became my loyal companion, accompanying me on my adventures around the world.
Becoming a photographer was a rather spontaneous decision, and neither I nor anyone else saw it coming. However, looking back, I can confidently say that I am incredibly grateful it did. Becoming a professional photographer has been an incredibly fulfilling and rewarding journey. The ability to capture and preserve moments of joy, love, and beauty for others brings me immense joy. I am genuinely thankful for the unexpected path that led me to this passionate pursuit.
With every click of my camera, I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have found my calling in the world of photography."
"From my early years, the arts have been an integral part of who I am. The crafty one in the family, I always found joy in expressing myself through creative endeavours. Then, in 2015, I randomly picked up my mom's camera and fell in love with photography.
The best part is how it instantly boosts someone's confidence during a shoot. I enjoy capturing their glowing faces and telling their unique love stories through my photos. It's why I decided to focus on documenting love stories - a special privilege to witness and preserve love in its purest form. Photography is more than a career; it's my way of celebrating life and creating cherished memories."

Of Wild & Wander was founded in 2018. What started as a one-person operation has now grown into a team of talented individuals who share a passion for capturing beautiful and candid moments.
"To me, it's not just a passion for photography, but a passion for walking through life with a camera in hand. There are moments when an uncontrollable desire arises to savour and etch every last detail that surrounds me, and I embrace that urge wholeheartedly. Photography becomes my medium to capture and preserve these precious moments.
The ability to freeze tender daylight like capturing a firefly in a bottle is a gift I cherish. Not everyone holds this power, and I feel compelled to share it with others. Through photography, I can offer a glimpse into the beauty and wonder that surrounds us, preserving memories that will be treasured for a lifetime."
"My love for photography began when I was about 2 years old. My parents handed me their camera, and I took my first-ever photos of my granny's garden. From there, I continued to play around with occasional picture-taking. In my early teens, I was given my first-ever DSLR camera, and that's when my passion for photography truly took off.
One of my favourite things about photography is the opportunity to learn every single day. In 2019, I decided to turn my passion into a career and attended the photography program at Algonquin College. Since then, I've been working full-time on my photography career, and I couldn't be happier!"
"I was raised in a household where my dad was constantly wielding a camera. When I turned 18, I took the plunge and invested in my first DSLR. Just two years later, I found myself behind the lens capturing the magic of my first wedding for a dear friend. From that pivotal moment, weddings became more than just events to me – they became a passion that consumed my every waking moment.
I embarked on a journey of self-teaching the intricate art of wedding photography, relying on a mix of trial and error and a plethora of YouTube tutorials. Since that transformative day, my life's purpose has centered around evolving into the best photographer I can be. My commitment is not only to master the craft but also to wholeheartedly serve my couples, ensuring that each photograph I create is an authentic and cherished piece of their love story."
