Photography Value

Weddings can be expensive. I get that, but I want you to think about what you get to keep after your wedding day. Your dress, you can dry your flowers and YOUR PHOTOS. That’s it.

Photos are a way to remember all the fantastic memories of your wedding. Photographs are such a vital keepsake to have for the future, to look back on life’s important moments and to pass down to future generations. Photos trigger happy memories, decorate your walls, and document life’s crazy moments.

So yes, wedding photography can cost a lot of money BUT remember that your choice in the photographer will determine one of your biggest keepsakes from your wedding day.

What do I mean by Elopement?

To me, elopements are breaking from the traditional ideas of what a wedding ‘should’ look like. It doesn’t mean they are unplanned, or not well thought out. It doesn’t make them any less meaningful than traditional weddings. Deciding to elope means deciding what vital to you as a couple, and planning one of the most important days to be about the two of you and your love and commitment to each other.

To some eloping can mean a courthouse ceremony, and maybe that is part of the legal part. But eloping to me is about adventure, starting your marriage doing something as adventurous as committing to spending your lives together. Maybe that’s climbing a mountain, or flocking along a beach, or exploring a vineyard and tasting some wine. It could be exploring an ancient city, or, maybe it’s hiking your favourite trail and bringing along some bubbly + cake. It could involve your beloved pets, your closest friends or your immediate family. It could also be only the two of you, soaking in all the emotions of your perfect day.

Eloping gets to be what you decide is best for you as a couple, and I am lucky enough to come along on that adventure and photograph it for you.

What do I mean by Small Weddings?

To me, small weddings are picking the aspects of traditional weddings that speak to you and ditching those aspects that don’t. It’s making your wedding day be about your love and commitment to each other be at the forefront instead of people’s expectations of what a wedding should look like and what a wedding should include.

Small weddings are for people who want to be surrounded by their close family and friends but don’t care about societal expectations of what their wedding should be. This could mean a small vineyard wedding that skips the first dances and focuses on enjoying each other’s company. Maybe you don’t like cake, so skip it. Perhaps the idea of your perfect day is getting married in front of the mountains and a glacier lake and having your reception at a campsite having an epic BBQ. It’s been done, and it was one of my favourite weddings. This could be a backyard wedding surrounded by family enjoying a meal and watching the sunset as you dance on the patio and have a night swim. Make your wedding about you and what you want your day to feel like.

A Bit About Chantal

A little info about your photographer, 

I am obsessed with dogs and feel like I need to pet all the dogs I come across. When I am not drinking coffee, I am usually drinking wine, a wino who grew up in wine country and takes wine tours whenever I travel to a new place. Growing up, people dreamed about different careers they would have, and I dreamed about the places I would one day visit. A camera was the first thing I saved up money for, and you could say the rest was history.

p.s the sarcasm is real with this one, expect some salt with my jokes 😉
