Couple Photos in Ontario, Canada

What if you documented your relationship on a regular basis? Instead of waiting for big moments or relying on selfies to create memories.

Don’t limit yourself to engagement sessions, anniversary sessions or maternity sessions to get photos taken. You don’t have to wait for the big moments to happen to document your relationship. 

Afterall your relationship is built on all the small moments, the way you hold hands, the way you make eachother laugh, the way you hold each other and the way you make each other feel safe, seen and loved.

 

So why not photograph those moments, photographs that make you remember how it felt to fall in love, to decide to commit to each other, to stay together through the good times and the bad.

Loving each other and building a relationship is a choice and so is photographing it. Don’t you want to remember how it felt? Celebrate your relationship and stop waiting for those big moments to have photographs together.

 

 

                                                         

Couple photos sessions are about making memories together. Think of them like a date day with professional photos. 

Couple photos gives you freedom to decide what you want documented. Your favourite hike? A visit to your favourite winery? Photos at the cafe where you had your first date? Did you fall in love while cooking together? An in-home session that captures your love of cooking together would be marvelous.

The point is your relationship is unique. So why aren’t your photos?

 

Don't know where to start?

I am here to help. If you need location ideas I have you covered. I send out a questionnaire that lets me know what you like or don’t like in location options. I send you a location list filled with options including photos.

I have a 20+ page outfit guide that goes over all your questions about outfit selections including how to pack them if you choose a hiking adventure.

 

 

 

Let me introduce myself. I’m Chantal, your couple session photographer.

I help you feel relaxed and comfortable to be yourselves. I want you to love the experience as much as the photos.

I will help you find an off the beat location or rediscover your favourite local spot for photos. I combine fine art with movement and laughter.

 

It’s not just about photographing you. It’s about photographing you together within the landscape. I want to tell your story with photos that make you remember how it felt in that moment, in that year, in that spot. It’s not just about photos, it’s about your story.

 

 

Planning a trip? Why not book a couples session?

From a weekend getaway to getting on a plane to explore a new place, get some photos done.

You are on vacation, so you tend to be more relaxed. You already have your favourite outfits and you are someplace you have always wanted to explore.

How often are you scrambling to take a good selfie? Asking strangers to take photos of you and hoping you get a good one?

I live in a tourist destination, between living in Niagara on the Lake to being 20 minutes from Niagara Falls, I understand the importance of having photos taken while you are on vacation.

Photograph your adventures.

 

Remember how your relationship develops through photographs.

Let’s be honest, relationships don’t stay the same. Relationships change, develop and grow as you do.

Remember the beginning, new love, it’s exciting and passionate. The comfort you feel as the relationship feels stable over time. They way you get to know each other all the the little things you love ( and the things that annoy you) about the other person.

Why not have couple photos regularly to cherish your relationship and to show how it’s changed over the years and how it has stayed the same.

Chantal is amazing to work with! she is incredibly flexible and makes every photo shoot fun and exciting. I have known Chantal for years now, she shot my wedding, my anniversary photos and now my maternity photos. I have been over the moon about every single photo she has taken! Even when I am not feeling the most photogenic she has a way of making you relax and enjoy the process in order to come out with beautiful photos. Finally, She has an amazing ability to capture the relationship my husband and I have together, goofy, fun and full of laughs, without having to force a thing.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Shannon and Pat

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 photography, 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! :)

Questions Answered. These are some of the most common questions I get asked.

Couple Photo Packages in Ontario

Do I get to pick the location?

Yes. If you have a specific location in mind, great! If you have a ‘look,’ you are going for, but are not sure of a place. Let me know, and I can help find a location that works for you. I love helping out with location decisions.

Is travel included in the package price?

Yes, they are included in my couple photo packages. I do this to make things easier on you, so you have an exact number and not an estimate of what you are paying. Also, I tend to book my travel in bulk, so when I am in Banff in June each year, not one couple is paying for my whole travel, it is split between all the couples that I book in Banff in June. Make sense?

What do you mean by travel is included?

Short answer: commercial flights, car rentals, gas and accommodations if needed.

Not every couple photo session will need all of these travel options included. That is why I have custom packages for different locations that include travel.

What is the booking process? How does payment work?

To get started, fill out my contact form on my contact page. I will get back to you answering any questions you have and sending you my pricing guide. We can keep it all through emails or we can hop on a call to talk about what you want in a couple sessions.

I require a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer to book a couple sessions. This means you are officially booked and your couple session day is put into my calendar. The balance is due before the start of the photo session.

Do you have any tips on what we should wear to our photo shoot?

Yes! I have an outfit planning guide that comes with the purchase of a session.

How fast do I get the photos back?

You will get your online gallery delivered to you wholly edited 15 days from the shoot.

How do we hike in couple session attire?

I have a whole section on this included in my outfit planning guide. The short answer, you don’t have to do the whole hike in your couple session attire. You can hike in regular clothes and change once we get to the location.

I suggest choosing couple session attire that allows you to move around. Make sure you can walk around, move from side to side and lunge in your outfits if you plan on hiking in them.

What are permits? How do we know if we need one?

Some locations require permits for you to have photography done onsite. Once you decide on a location, I will help you determine what permits (if any) are needed and how to apply for them.

The Booking Process

  1. Fill out my contact form, you can find it by clicking ‘contact me’ 
  2. I will email you answering any questions you have, give you more information + a pricing guide.
  3. We can set up a time for a phone call or continue talking through email, whichever option you prefer.
  4. Phone call or continue emails talking about your couple photo goals, whether that’s a couple session, in-home session or an adventure session.
  5. Reserve your date with me. I will send over a contract + retainer information. At this point we only need a date, a general location area and the retainer.
  6. Yes! Officially Booked 🙂 I help you with location ideas, timelines, outfit guides and more.
  7. You have a couple photo session you revel in and relive the day through your photos for years to come.
