Love is Magic

Love is Magic

Southern California based wedding and elopement photographer

The most beautiful things in life are not things.
They're people and places and memories and pictures.
They're feelings and moments and smiles and laughter.

Proud Ravenclaw, obsessed with Peppermint White Mochas. And a serious addiction to Rosé and cheese plates. I quote Movies and TV shows like a second language. I was raised on the cinema and inspired by it, so I bring that magic and wonder into everything I photograph. I get to work alongside the love of my life, and that is seriously the best thing ever! 

Hey, I'm Chanelle

We are so in love with our images, and she truly worked miracles as the weather was not our best friend that day. It rained all day, which was a bummer because our venue was outdoors with a beautiful garden. 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!!

"She truly worked miracles"


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!

"Made us feel comfortable and was so fun!"


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 memebers, 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 on the phone, she told me she would help me stick to my schedule and be my biggest cheerleader that day. She did all that and more! I recommend her to everyone!

"Captured the mood of our day perfectly"


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!
