Hey, 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.

My mission is to make sure that you enjoy the heck out of your wedding day and capture all the fun and tender moments between you and your love. Ernest’s goal is to amaze you and your guests with his epic Closeup magic skills so that everyone has a unique and memorable experience.

MAGICIAN TEAM

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!

"CAPTURED THE MOOD OF OUR DAY PERFECTLY"

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!!

"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!"

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!
