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. I’m now starting my 6th year of photographing weddings and i’m so glad I made that choice!

My photography is best suited to couples looking for natural, artistic images, who want their wedding to be an authentic expression of their unique relationship. My style is classic, romantic and timeless. My ideal clients are easy going, adventurous and very much in love.  I love capturing genuine moments and emotion, but I 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 work primarily with natural light and love incorporating beautiful natural landscapes into my portraits. My other love is landscape and travel photography (you can view my work here), which strongly influences my wedding work. My images are captured on both film and digital depending on which medium is better suited to a particular situation.

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!
