Class & elegance are the purest forms of simplicity! Documenting emotion is one of greatest feelings in the world and I do it with absolute joy!

Over years, I've polished my way of seeing things and photographing them - I consider myself a documentary photographer. I let things fall into place as they're meant to be and capture the moment. My creativity lies in simplicity, its what makes a great image!

My biggest goal in life is documenting lives for others to either share their stories, struggles, achievements and help them in any way possible! Portraits are the greatest way of humanizing humanity! :)


Testimonials

Amazing photographer! Avan was so easy to work with and made us feel instantly comfortable for two people who are rarely in front of a camera. We couldn’t be happier with how our engagement and wedding pictures turned out!

Avan came and saved me. My original photographer was no longer able to help me at my destination wedding and we were able to confirm everything just 2 weeks before flying! He was a lot of fun in Cuba... he knew exactly what we wanted!! He was very quick in giving us our photos and he always let us know that he was working on them by showing us sneak peaks. Not surprised.. the pictures came out AMAZING! everyone loved them.. I would definitely recommend him. For any of my future shoots.. I know I would 100% find Avan again.

Avan photographed our wedding in Varadero and did an amazing job. He exceeded all our expectations and was a blast to have on the trip with us while being completely professional at the same time.

The day of the wedding he did an amazing job of coordinating the first look, pictures of everyone getting ready, and all of the pictures from the wedding requiring many different groups. Avan has an amazing talent for taking beautiful and creative photos, and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.

Avan was a pleasure to work with, and we would highly recommend him to anyone!

Rewind pre wedding- Avan swept in and honoured the contract we had with our original photographer, who no long was going to be apart of our most special day. He took us on almost last minute and saved me a huge relief of stress.
Fast forward to our wedding day- unbelievable to work with, made us feel comfortable and got our most important photos and then some.
We were blown away by the breath taking memories he captured for us and are so blessed he came along!
I will always recommend his trustworthy, professional and outstanding service.

Avan is an exceptionally talented photographer. We did a family fall photoshoot with him and the experience exceeded our expectations by far! He was very friendly, professional, patient and accommodating, even allowing us to change outfits mid-shoot. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to working with him again in the near future. I highly recommend Avan if you’re looking for a photographer with a unique, extraordinary vision to capture those precious moments!
