Love is Magic

When I think back to when I was a little girl, looking up at the stars and imagining my future, I remember I wanted a great love like the movies, a big bold life of adventure annnnd I also wanted to be a wizard like Harry Potter :)  So it's only fitting that I fell in love with a Magician. Ernest showed me closeup card magic on our first date and in that moment I felt all of the joy and wonder of being a kid again and I felt the sparks of a big adventure brewing. Our first date lasted a week and we've been on a journey together to create and capture joy with closeup magic and photography ever since! 

This isn’t just our passion, it’s our life!

I'm Chanelle, your fun-loving, sunset-chasing, timeline-managing, cheerleader who is going to give you the wedding experience you've always dreamed of. My work is a combination of heartfelt candids and fine art portraits. 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. I get to work alongside the love of my life, and that is seriously the best thing ever!
