Hey, I’m Chantal + I am an
Ontario Elopement Photographer that specializes in small weddings and elopements. I am based in Niagara and Kitchener but service all of Ontario and across Canada.
I see you trying to plan a wedding while staying true to yourself
Maybe you have been putting off making decisions because something does not feel right about a traditional wedding. You are excited about the marriage but not about planning a traditional wedding.
What if you chose an experience over a traditional wedding? Your wedding can be an adventure of your choosing. You can decide what traditions to include if any.
What if you planned the perfect wedding day for you and your relationship?
It is possible to have a wedding day experience that you love.
My focus as an Ontario elopement photographer is for you to have the wedding experience that you want.
A bespoke photo experience
Photographing your wedding story as it unfolds
Capturing the mood, atmosphere and emotion so your photos make you remember how the wedding felt.
Candids are important because the magic happens in the in between moments.
What I do.
I let you have your space and soak in those in between moments. Your wedding is not a production. You will not have a camera in your face the whole time. I want you to enjoy the whole wedding day experience.
I guide you through the process when you need it. I have a wealth of information, experience and preparation.
I make you feel seen, comfortable and relaxed. Real moments happen when you are comfortable being yourselves.
I am assertive when needed. Hello family photos.
How I help you.
I have a planning guide specifically geared towards small weddings. Getting married in a backyard, vineyard, BNB or boutique hotel? This guide is 65 pages and it includes a lot of information to help you plan your wedding day.
Are you eloping? I have a planning guide that helps you choose the best elopement experience for you. It is a guide with over 80 pages of information to help you plan your elopement.
Need timeline help? I help you create a bespoke timeline that fits your wedding day without being rushed.
Do you know the type of landscape you want to get married in but don’t know of an actual location that fits your desires? I can help you with that. I create a custom location list based on what you want in your wedding photos.
So you are nervous about getting photographed. What you can expect.
Spoiler Alert: Everyone thinks they are awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera. Don’t worry; I got you. You will be smiling + laughing in no time.
You will look back on the photos we take and remember what you felt and the love you shared.
I won’t make you do any ‘poses’ or ‘prompts’ that you don’t feel comfortable with; this photo experience is a collaboration. I want to take photos that reflect your personality and your relationship.
I hope you realize that you are amazing individuals that make up this relationship, and that should be celebrated, accepted and cherished.
I want you to walk away from this experience a little more confident in getting in front of a camera in the future because your love story deserves to be photographed throughout your life.
Hi, I'm Chantal
I am an Ontario elopement photographer and Ontario wedding photographer
I found my love for exploring the world before I discovered my passion for small weddings and elopements.
Sometimes I think it was meant to be this way so that I could find this incredible adventure of exploring the world while photographing the most amazing couples.

Chantal Davidson was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive by phone and emails, professional and personable. She has a way of putting her clients at ease. During our photo session, she helped me and my husband feel very comfortable. That made for capturing precious and genuine moments between us. I love her balance between candid photos and posed photos. She has an incredible talent and is truly an amazing photographer, with training experience worldwide. The results of her pictures truly speak for themselves - absolutely breathtaking visuals and stunning pictures.

We are so lucky to have had Chantal be a part of our big day and now be a part of our lives. Chantal is such a beautiful soul and produces some seriously beautiful work. I am so lucky to have found her on my search for a wedding photographer and gained her as a friend. If you’re looking for awesome candid moments to capture all of the fun of your wedding (or stag and doe or birthday - literally anything) then she is your girl!! Chantal does wonderful posed shots as well and makes you feel super comfortable if you’re not (like my husband and I hahah)
Thank you for everything Chantal ❤️

My husband and I had the pleasure to be photographed in Banff by Chantal in summer of 2019. Chantal is not only an amazing photographer, but soo friendly and fun to be around, we spent extra hour or two after session sipping coffee and chatting. :)
She makes you laugh and lets you soak in those in-between moments(my favorite photos!). It was freezing with wind gusts I almost flew away, but you could barely tell in photos because we are all laughs having a great time :)
If you are looking for more than beautiful photos, rain or shine Chantal is your girl! :)
