Hi, i’m Lushana! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit more about me!

Photography has always held an important place in my life. I grew up with photo-enthusiast parents and began learning photography on their collection of vintage film cameras at an early age. Originally from Victoria BC,  I completed my B.F.A. in Visual Arts in Montreal then moved to Toronto for an M.A. in Media Studies. I originally planned to become a teacher, but I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my real passion instead. 2017 was my 6th year of photographing weddings and i’m so glad I made that choice!

My photography is best suited to client who are looking for natural, romantic and timeless images. Couples who book me are usually easy going, somewhat untraditional, and view their wedding as an expression of their relationship. I love smaller more intimate weddings at unique venues rather than the standard banquet wedding with large bridal party. I keep posed photos to a minimum and enjoy capturing genuine moments, although I do also love setting up pretty shots of all your beautiful details, and taking the bride and groom aside for some creative portraits is my favorite part of the wedding day! I’m especially inspired by beautiful landscape or old architecture and love incorporating them into my portraits. I work primarily with natural light and use a mixture of digital and film to capture different parts of the wedding day. I also love to travel and welcome any clients that give me an excuse to head back to the west coast of Canada or abroad!

I take on a limited number of weddings each year, so it’s very important to me that the couples I do work with are a good fit. If my work resonates with you, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
