Love story of Anna and Andrea

By Manny

Montreal’s Lachine canal was a very unique place to photograph Anna and Andrea. This was a complementry shoot to their formal engagement. The weather started off gloomy with clouds and some rain. About fifteen minutes after arriving for the shoot the sky slowly began to clear up and we ended up with a beautiful day. We all had so much fun and it shows in the photographs. We joked and laughed. I posed them and then I didn’t. I let them do their own thing which brought out their personalities. They dressed casual and also brought along some props to […]

Our little one’s baptism

By Manny

Every now and then something special happens in ones life that makes everything you have done and sacrificed for worth while. This is the case for myself and my family. Eight months ago a little boy was born. That little boy is my grandson. For every parent and grandparent for that matter, their own children and grand children are the cutest in the world, and they are. Every baby has its own charm and every parent can sense it, can feel it and can see it. Little Emmanuel (Manolaki) is no exception. He is adorable, cute, huggable and an all […]

The Wedding of Zaphira and Jeremy

By Manny

Hard to believe that I did this bride’s baptism so many years ago. Zaphira has grown to be a beautiful young woman who is also a talented artist. The love between Jeremy and Zaphira is clearly captured in their wedding photos. The summer day was just perfect for taking pictures not to hot or humid. We wish them all the best and a bright future ahead.                                                                     […]

Chantal and Paul’s wedding

By Manny

I shot this wedding for a good friend of mine Frank Maniscalco. This beautiful couple got married in the old port of  Montreal on Le Bateau Mouche. They were a truly wonder to work with. The wedding was full of fun and laughter and everyone had a great time. The ceremony took place on the boat followed by a light lunch as we took a tour of old port. It was quite an experience.         Please share

Sophia’s confirmation

It was a wonderful day for Sophia’s confirmation. The ceremony took place at St. Gabriel’s parish in Montreal. The pictures I created of her show a beautiful young  girl full of life and spirit. They are images to be treasured forever.                       With a wonderful smile she even looks good in black and white                                          Sophia’s sister was her sponsor                       […]

Full Circle

By Manny

This wedding was that of my mentor’s daughter Marianthi who married Denis. It has been almost thirty years since I first met John (the father of the bride). He took me under his wing and showed me a side of photography that has made me who I am today. His style and attention to detail were next to none. He could see the direction of light and place his subjects exactly where the light would be most flattering on them.  Everyone alway looked good in his pictures.         Please share

Your Wedding Day

By Manny

That special day is looming closer and closer and there are still some things that have to  be taken care of.  For one you have yet to book your photographer. So where do you start? In this day and age finding and hiring a photographer has taken a whole new twist. It used to be word of mouth or some kind of buzz that had been created about a certain photographer.  Now with the internet, especially with social media, all that has changed. Brides and grooms still consult their friends and relatives but that is just a  part of what […]
