Bringing fine arts to the outdoors by using light + emotions to tell your story.

Life is short and we are left with our experiences, our memories and our photographs.

So take all the photographs of your adventures, the people you love, those big moments (like an elopement or wedding) and those smaller moments that end up being the most important memories.

Photographs that tell your story.

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 doesn’t feel right about a traditional wedding. You are excited for the marriage but not for planning a traditional wedding.

What if you chose an experience over a traditional wedding? Your wedding can be filled with 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’s 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.

Capturing the essence of your wedding day

Learn about the photography experience.

What I do.

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.

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.

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 with 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.

Let's talk about your photography experience

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.

Let me introduce myself, I'm Chantal

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.

I fell in love with B+W film and medium format cameras. I use digital cameras and film cameras to tell your story and to create art that focuses on movement, moments and memories that capture your essence.

We cannot recommend Chantal enough, she was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From the start of the process until the end she was so much more involved than we could have hoped for. She took so much time to get to know us, our wedding, and our needs and wants from photos. She spent a lot of time getting to know us personally and our relationship and that effort bled into the photos as they just perfectly feel like us. On top of that, she was very accommodating to numerous changes to our plan due to COVID, including traveling to Collingwood on two weeks’ notice.

Chantal took the time to help us plan the logistics of our day, what photos we would need, and provided so many resources to help us plan the perfect day. Chantal fit in with our family and friends so well, to the point that it felt like we had been friends for years. She was an instrumental part of our day, and we are so happy that we chose her as our photographer!
