Chanelle

Edinburgh Wedding Photographer

Photo delivery is in just 2 weeks! My online galleries never expire and keep growing with each session.

Vibrant, fun, cinematic photos that capture your raw reactions and what your relationship feels like.

My number one goal is to make you feel comfortable, cheer you on and help you have a fun photo experience!

I've been told by so many couples that they are nervous, awkward and don't know how to pose. But I'm not expecting you to be models, I want you to look natural and have fun. I guide you through posing by giving you direction and encouraging playfulness so that I capture candid moments of real laughter and raw emotions. 

I'm more than a photographer. I have a spidey sense for anticipating moments and I'm sensitive to your needs. Sometimes that means understanding when you feel overwhelmed by your three sisters that have all been married and all have their own opinions about your wedding day. I remember finding myself in this situation with a bride, I felt her discomfort and sensed that she was going to lose it, really soon. So I grabbed her vape and asked her to step out with me for some bridals in the sunlight. When we got outside I gave her the vape and told her "We don't need to take any photos, I just wanted to give you a tiny break. And give you the space to unload your feelings on me, in a way that won't cause problems with your family." She gave me the biggest hug and said "You could really sense my anger boiling huh?!"

When you work with me, you're gaining a friend, a confidant and an expert in the wedding industry. Having photographed over 200 weddings, I've seen it all,. And I'm here to guide you every step of the way so you can stress less and love more.

An innate ability to make us feel COMFORTABLE and CHERISHED in front of the camera.

From beginning to end, Chanelle answered every question. Always quick to respond. Provided details of the process, and insight to make my wedding as special as can be. She made my entire family comfortable. She went above and beyond and all the wedding photos are perfect, gorgeous and incredible. She captured each special moments, from rehearsal, to both bride and groom sides, to the ceremony and reception. Her skills made my special day very memorable.

Virginia + Mike

made my entire family comfortable

I personally was nervous about not knowing how to pose and looking awkward in photos but Chanelle’s such a friendly and approachable person. She gave great direction when it came to posing and was very understanding when we told her we didn’t want to do certain poses. We felt very comfortable being ourselves in front of the camera with her. She really went above and beyond our expectations capturing the wide range of emotions throughout the day.

Jessica + Omar

beyond our expectations

LOVE IS MAGIC!!! Chanelle made our wedding the most magical experience ever, she and her team went beyond mere passive photography and cinematography and went the extra 100 miles to create special moments and memories throughout the whole day, from getting ready all the way through the reception. 11/10 would recommend to anyone in the OC area.

Kayvon + Lisa

the most magical experience

Even though we had some hiccups with the snow melting before we got up there, she worked her magic and got us some amazing shots! Her communication throughout our entire experience was great and we always felt like a priority. Our wedding photos came out so beautiful and I can't stop looking at them! We would highly, highly recommend and will definitely be using Chanelle for any future shoots like maternity or baby pictures :)

Sarah + Brandon

WE ALWAYS FELT LIKE A PRIORITY

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. 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!!

Rosalie + Javier

truly worked miracles

We could never have anticipated just how incredible our experience would be. Chanelle was more than just a photographer; she became a storyteller, a confidante, and an artist devoted to framing our love in the most captivating way. But what was most impressive was her innate ability to make us feel comfortable and cherished in front of the camera. Chanelle didn’t just stage photos; she orchestrated moments. Every image was a masterpiece. She capture not just your picture but your essence.

Jose + Aimee

innate ability to make us feel comfortable

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.

Sam + Juan

doesn't miss one precious moment

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. Incredible attention to detail and an absolute professional. I would definitely recommend her services and WILL be using her again in the future.

Victoria + Amanda

Incredible attention to detail

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! 

Sarah + Brandon

easily the best decision i made

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!

Kind words

My favorite moments at a wedding aren’t the epic portraits, its the quiet moments like the sweetest first look! Victoria turned around to show Jason her dress and it just oozed with cuteness!

Intimate Edinburgh Wedding

Calton Hill is a popular destination in Edinburgh to take engagement photos. Morning on the hill creates the most dreamy light and the Arthur's Seat views are magical.

Edinburgh engagement photos

Princes Street Gardens is hands down, one of my favorite Edinburgh engagement shoot locations. Morning may seem early, but I PROMISE, it is 100% worth it! You won't be disappointed!

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN Edinburgh

My approach to photography stems from my lifelong love of the cinema and my dream of contributing to a more magical world. I was raised on the cinema and inspired by it, so I bring that magic and wonder into everything I photograph. I think love and human connection are pretty damn magical. You'll catch me feeling the vibes of the day with you, tearing up during your vows and grooving with camera in hand just waiting for your bridal party to start a dance battle. And when someone screams “Shots!”, I’ll be there to capture all the funny post drink faces. I want to give you photos that celebrate your unique love and capture the feeling and emotion of your wedding day. I think every one of our stories is different and important, and thus, worthy of investing in and remembering.

Words can’t always describe how we feel. But I hope these photos tell your story. When you look back at your wedding album in 5, 10, and 20 years, I want you to remember the moment you saw your partner coming down the aisle and tears flooded down your face as you thought about everything you’ve gone through together. The way your arms wrap around each other every time you stood near. And the way you laugh with your whole body at an inside joke, only you two share. Experiencing these moments myself helped shape the way I feel emotions need to be captured on a wedding day. 

If these are the things you want to remember, if this is what you want to feel when you look back at your photos, head to my Experience page to find out how I'll make your dream wedding a reality!

Send me a message below to see if your date is available. Don't delay! I typically book a year in advance.



My work is a collaboration, I want to tell your story and I do that best when I know more about you. I like to add a personal touch and do things differently. My couples tend to be madly in love, adventurous and even non traditional, choosing to do activities that feel more personal on their day. And I want to be there to document your story, whether that's morning golf descending into cart races or sneaking away to the hotel room to take a few intimate newlywed pics! I want to give you photos that capture who you are and what your relationship feels like. I am invested in you, your love, and your day.
