Hey there! 
I’m Brian. Here's my story.

It was on March 19, 2018 when Diana made me the happiest guy on earth.
She said yes!

From then on, it was time to plan our wedding, counting down the days to our wedding on December 12, 2019, our 10-year anniversary together.

Then the wedding planning checklist started to pile up. The process was definitely overwhelming, so I know how you’re feeling right now.

Fast forward to December 12, 2019…

Mr. & Mrs. Ly!

I’m still trying to get used to hearing this to this day. Our wedding was amazing… and I mean AMAZING! I would not change that day for the world. Diana and I got married in Mexico with our closest family and friends, a beautiful escape from the cold Canadian winter. 

Our first dance to Daniel Caesar’s ‘Best Part’ on the boardwalk by the soothing Mexican beach under the twinkling night stars was just perfect.

But something felt missing…

Our wedding photographs were BEAUTIFUL! Diana and I loved every single one. However, when we reflected back, something just felt a little off - the experience.

Our wedding photography experience leading up to our wedding just didn’t feel right, as if our photographer was like a stranger to us on our wedding day. Someone who didn’t get the chance to know us and learn about what mattered most to us.

Then something happened…

“I’m going to start photographing weddings.”

LEARN ABOUT THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE

Growing up, I loved using my parents’ old digital camera to shoot videos and photos for my YouTube channel (I cringe every time I’m reminded of those days lol).

Our wedding re-sparked the fire, as I thought to myself that there was no better way to start photographing again other than documenting the happiest day of your life.

A day filled with happiness, tears, and genuine love. It was a realization that genuine human emotion and the moments that revolve around it on a wedding day was something I wanted to surround myself with and to help preserve for others.

It was at that moment when I knew I was going to provide an experience that future newlyweds truly deserve.

An experience that allows your values to be heard and understood.

An experience that completely revolves around the heart of what matters most to you.
