Guyson aka G aka Gigi
I've been taking photos of my friends and family for much longer than I can remember, I had the itch to document pivotal moments in my life without knowing that I could make it a job. I started in sports and photography as a supplement to my job as a coach to one of the top track and field programs in Canada.
It seems cliche but a high school best friend asked me to assist the leader photographer on his wedding day about two weeks before the big day! talk about jumping into the fire! Over time I got drawn to the world of wedding photography by more and more friends asking me to be a part of the important day in their lives to date. One wedding after the other, I realized I loved meeting new people, and crafting stories, and experiences with them, their friends, and family, and I am proud to say that I love what I do.
As I have grown as a photographer I've found my love of storytelling portraits in all shapes and forms. I am not one to conform to the norms, but I have a deep respect for artistic and classic imagery. I shape each experience to be as unique as possible for everyone involved.

"When we received the photos from our last session I was brought to tears. Guyson captured us so beautifully, and he managed to capture some candid photos of my husband and son that were beyond my expectations. If you are looking for someone to capture both the classic poses but also get creative and capture those unexpected moments then Guyson is a perfect choice for you!"
