Love is Magic

I’m Chanelle, together with my love Ernest, we’ll photograph the feel and emotion of your wedding in the most meaningful and magical way. We have a gift for meeting couples and instantly feeling like old friends. We’re all about fun and we want you to have a kick ass time.

We’re a fun-loving couple that sings Karaoke at the top of our lungs, loves traveling and creating epic couple costumes for Halloween. We're all about searching out the best Brunch, Sushi or Indian food, Walking the pups around our neighborhood, and Spending our days off at Universal’s Wizarding World or The Magic Castle.

I don’t want to be just another vendor crossed off your list, I want to get to know you and be a friend  you can trust to make this experience the best. I’ve been to a lot of weddings and I want to be a resource for you. If you are overwhelmed by the numbers you see here but you feel like you’ve connected with my work and my personality don’t let numbers hold you back. I am happy to work with reasonable budgets by creating custom collections. All I ask is that you remember that photography is my career not my hobby and at the end of the day I have to pay bills, feed my dogs, and you know just generally survive.

FINE ART ALBUM

I like to let things unfold naturally and feel the vibes of the day with you. I'm the girl wearing a big cheesy smile as I photograph all the epic dance moves and joy! When it comes to couple portraits, I capture emotion and laughter by asking you to be playful and interact. I know how to make you feel comfortable and make it easy for you to share heartfelt moments. I am invested in you, your love and your day!

Photography Approach: We just want you to have fun!

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! Plus our couples love that we are a couple and that we understand what is important to capture. We're able to capture every last detail, guest and moment because we shoot with intention, we know when certain events are happening and we watch and wait for those moments to unfold naturally. We like to think we have a spidey-sense for anticipating candid emotional and joyful moments.

having a couple for your photography team

I'm here to help you plan and alleviate stress. So the first thing you’ll get is a Planning Guide, filled with all the knowledge I’ve gained from 6 years of experience planning timelines and making YOUR life easier. Then 2-3 weeks 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! 

6 years of experience  making YOUR life easier

We only take a limited number of weddings every year because we want to ensure that we can serve every single couple to our full potential. We care about giving couples the best possible photos, which can take 2-3 hours to edit every 1 hour of wedding day coverage. And when you include all of the emails, phone calls, engagement sessions, timeline meetings, social media, photo editing and album creation, we usually spend an average of 65 hours of work on every wedding. We can only take 4 more for 2020. So if you think we will be a good match, get in touch with us right away!

you'll spend more time with your photographers than any other vendor

1. Do you shoot destination weddings OR ELOPEMENTS?

Yes, we love to travel!!! Ernest is my favorite travel buddy and we're ready to adventure anywhere in the world with you. Message me the details and I'll put together a custom package for you.

Please include: location(s), venue, date(s), # of hours, # of guests, theme, special activities, budget.

2. DO YOU OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE TO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

If you prefer not to do an engagement session, you may substitute it for a Keepsake, a boudoir session, or an additional hour of shoot time on your wedding day.

3. Do you charge travel fees?

There is no travel fee for Southern California weddings. If your venue is more than 2 hours from our home, we'll stay in a hotel room (at our own cost) the night before your wedding, so we can avoid any traffic issues and arrive refreshed and ready to shoot. 

4. HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?

You can expect around 100 photos per hour that we are photographing your wedding. We never cap the number of photos we deliver a couple. We want to tell the full story of your wedding day and that can only be done by delivering all the images that capture the feel and emotion of your day.

5. How long before I receive my wedding photos?

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

8. WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS?

I love to meet in person or Skype to make sure we vibe. After that a signed agreement and $1000 deposit locks in your date and the rest is due 7 days prior to your wedding date. Payment plans are also available!
