hey there!

I'm Chantelle, but my friends + family call me Telle.

Long story short, I like weddings. Like, I really like weddings. Sure I've used my fair share of the word 'swoon' (it's a good word to describe weddings, okay?), but I believe that wedding pictures go so far beyond the final product of a ‘swoon-worthy’ gallery.

 

Even though the images I capture are described as fine art, you can bet your butt we will have a lot of fun creating them together! The biggest asset I bring with me on a wedding day (besides my camera, that's pretty big) is my ability to make a couple feel confident, relaxed + beautiful in front of my lens. It's my job to not only create outstanding, timeless imagery for my couples, but to create an unforgettable wedding day experience. Think of me as the bridesmaid you didn't know you needed but showed up to your wedding day anyways, ready to help. That is something money can't buy. Okay, no. Money can buy that, but I digress.

 

You know that pitter-patter feeling you get in your heart when you see or hear something that you like? That is the feeling I strive to convey with my images. The ultimate compliment (besides telling me my hair looks nice) is when my couples receive their pictures and get those butterflies because their wedding pictures are just THAT beautiful.

Do you like how that all sounds? PERF. Here's a little bit about me;

 

Besides photographing weddings, I am also a wife to a guy whose job I still can't explain, a mama to a little dude with the chubbiest cheeks you'll ever see + a dog owner to my pooch Gus who looks far more like a muppet than an animal. I live in a small town in Southwestern Ontario close to the shores of Lake Erie. I'm a homebody through and through and would much rather have a giant glass of chocolate milk than a latte. My sense of humour has been described as *somewhat* sarcastic, and my favourite show is The Office. If you're lucky, I may even show up to your engagement session in my Dwight t-shirt.

K that was a long story made long. My bad.

Besides spending my weekends with brides + grooms, some of my favourite things include;

our babies, Darcy + Maeve

Our sweet littles fill my days with diapers + messes and I wouldn't have it any other way.*

the sunshine state

My inlaws are snowbirds so we often take vacations to the Gulf Coast.

Although previously my green thumb could be described as *somewhat* brown, I am in my second year of farming cut flowers!

This movie heavily influenced my own wedding (see photo) and continues to inspire my light-filled work.

cottage country

There isn't much better than mornings on the dock, afternoons in the lake and evenings by the fire in Northern Ontario.
