Love is Magic

the wedding experience

I don't want to photograph just the perfectly posed moments because real love is about more than that. I want to photograph your personalities and your unique relationship. The most important thing to me is building an amazing relationship with you! Choosing a photographer is a big deal. And I want you to feel comfortable and know that I have your back. Read on to see what it's like to work with us.

One of the most important things to me is building an amazing relationship with you! I truly value you! Love is kinda my jam and weddings are my happy place. I'd love to meet up for coffee to hear all about your plans and share in the excitement of your upcoming big day!

Coffee date

Pre Wedding

I'm not just here to capture your special moments. I'm here to help alleviate stress, answer questions, and help you plan. I give all of my couples a Wedding Planning Guide that is filled with Engagement Session tips, Wedding Planning tips and a Timeline Worksheet.

WEDDING PLANNING GUIDE

An engagement session is so important because this is the time that we get to REALLY know each other. I'll learn all about the two of you which gives us a great foundation on beginning a fabulous friendship! I'll see how the two of you interact and you’ll begin to understand how I photograph and work with you. My main goal is to capture the genuine love between you both! To the mountains or to the beach - let’s go on an adventure!

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I know you are super excited to see your images so I post sneak peeks to Instagram the day after your session or wedding. The following Wednesday, you can expect a highlight blog post of some of my favorite images! I send your complete gallery of images in 1-2 weeks for Sessions and just 2-3 weeks for Weddings! From there, I will prepare any prints or Albums to be sent out to you! 

IMAGE TURNAROUND

About a month before your wedding day, we will take you both on a dinner date to iron out timeline details and decompress. It will make you feel so confident about your wedding and it really solidifies our friendship!

CUSTOM TIMELINE

The best part about having a photography team is both of you get a dedicated photographer. There is no running back and forth between rooms, and no missed moments with your bridal party!  I’ll be the one cheering you on and encouraging the bridal party to jump on the bed. Ernest has one rule: if you’re taking shots he has to get a photo of clinking glasses. 

we're going to laugh alot

Wedding Day

I make sure to capture all the little things that you have planned for months. I love playing with  textures and finding a way to bring nature into detail shots. Don’t worry I have a last minute check list so you won’t forget any precious detail.

ALL THE PRETTY DETAILS

When it comes to couple portraits, I know how to make you feel comfortable and help your personalities shine! I don't just  take perfectly posed images. I'll direct you with prompts that encourage playfulness so that I capture real laughter and raw emotions. 

REAL LAUGHTER 
AND RAW EMOTION

I'm always on the lookout for candid moments like this one. And I know Family and friends are an important part of your day! I love meeting the people that helped make you, you. I'll capture all the fun, hugs, tears, and dancing. I like to let things unfold naturally and document every precious moment! 

ALL THE FEELS

We’re now offering Close-up Magic, in addition to photography. Ernest will photograph the morning events as usual. Then he will perform close-up magic during the Cocktail Hour and Reception. We will be sure to add an additional photographer, so you won’t miss out on any photos. In fact, you’ll get a ton more photos of your guests having a great time! 

CAPTIVATE AND
ENTERTAIN YOUR GUESTS

After dinner and the reception traditions are out of the way... it's time to get down on the dance floor. We usually capture 1.5 to 2 hours of dance floor time. We're always on the look out for moments like these: the groomsmen threw the Groom up on their shoulders and paraded him through the Reception.

Party time, excellent

Sparkler and glow stick send offs are the best. We can help you plan one! We know how quickly your wedding day will go by. Let us worry about the timeline so you can spend the night making memories and enjoying the heck out of your wedding day! 

Exit like a boss

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"

ROSALIE & JAVIER

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!"

CHRISTA & WESTON

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"

SARAH & BRANDON

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!

"Didn't miss one precious moment"
