TERRY MACHARDY

Since I was a child, I have taken photographs of everyday moments and small happenings in my life, and assembled the photos chronologically into albums. The albums make up bits and pieces of my life story, and tell a bit about who I am, from my perspective.  My life’s work is creating photographs and albums that tell stories of moments and happenings in the Live’s of my clients, I studied photography at Dawson College in Montreal Quebec and have been photographing off and on since 1985.

Why wedding and portrait photography? I am thrilled to have a job that allows me to explore my creativity while documenting   significant moments in my client’s lives. At every shoot, I learn something about love, something about life, or something about relationships. It is a tremendous honor to witness and document the love, emotion, and growing relationships of my clients. I am extremely grateful every day to have such a fulfilling job.

I describe my photography as honest, sincere and intimate. During my time in business, I have honed my aesthetic sensibilities and technical skills. My primary focus now is the beauty and raw emotion found in each moment. I approach each event and each session with attention, honesty, and love. I put my heart and soul into my work, and I believe that it shows in my photographs.
