Love is Magic

Southern California based wedding photographer + closeup magician

I’m Chanelle, Lead Photographer, travel junkie and lover of all things magic. I live and work in Southern California with my love, Ernest – Second Shooter, peanut butter to my jelly and talented Closeup Magician.

We’re just a fun-loving couple that sings Karaoke at the top of our lungs, loves road trips and creating epic couple costumes for Halloween.

Deciding to work with Chanelle was easily the best decision I made when planning my wedding. Having an experienced and enthusiastic person to listen to my ideas and help refine them was invaluable. On the day of the wedding, she was professional, kind to extended family members, had great suggestions for lighting and poses. She made me and my husband feel at ease and captured the mood of our day perfectly. When we first talked, she told me she would help me stick to my schedule and be my biggest cheerleader that day. She did all that and more!

We are so in love with our images, and she truly worked miracles as the weather was not our best friend that day. But Chanelle worked her magic and took the most beautiful images along with her partner Ernest (they are the cutest couple). She is very flexible and professional. She takes the time to get to know you as a couple, and days leading up to the wedding she will make sure to contact you to create a timeline of the day to make sure she does not miss any special moments that you'll surely want photographed. We highly recommend her!!

My husband and I are extremely happy that we went with Chanelle to be a part of our big day. She is kind, made us feel comfortable, and was so fun! She is extremely talented and is a natural when it comes to getting great shots. We are still getting compliments on our wedding photography, and it is all thanks to Chanelle's amazing work!

Best wedding photographer ever! We are SO HAPPY with the way our pictures turned out. She was there with us every step of the way to capture these most precious moments.

Chanelle is the best! I am so grateful to have had her be the photographer for our special day! Not only does she take amazing and gorgeous photos, but she's super hard working and doesn't miss one precious moment. I couldn't be happier with everything about her service, literally everything about the experience was top notch! Her professionalism, talent, dedication, responsiveness and flexibility are so refreshing, and with so much going on that day it's nice to know you're in good hands and don't have to worry about a thing. DEFINITELY 100% recommend!

Meeting Chanelle was a pleasure, she has a great personality, we clicked right away and I felt that was very important. Chanelle and Ernest were really great with our family and friends too. All of the shots she took were more than just attentive to the subjects but also the backgrounds, everything had great symmetry. I swear this lady has quite the magical eye!
