about me


Hey hey, new friends! I'm Chanel! I am a wedding & lifestyle photographer living in Nanaimo, BC.


First of all, I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my website!

A little bit about me! I live on Vancouver Island, pretty much the best place in the world with my husband and soon-to-be two babies. I grew up on the island, throughout the years I moved around and explored new places but this has always been my home base. My husband and I moved back out west 5 years ago and have never looked back- this truly is the best place in the world to call home. I have been into photography for as long as I can remember, I have been shooting professionally for the past 6 years and my love continues to grow for it every day. I studied photography in Montreal & Edmonton when I first got out of high school but found I gained my best knowledge by shooting continuously over the years.  I love to photograph love stories of all kinds, my intention behind photography is photographing human connection. I love shooting weddings, couples, families, and mamas with their babes. 


I honestly just love creating magic with others, I love to give my clients a great experience when they book with me- to tell a piece of your story is what drives my passion.  I hope you will look back on your images forever and be so happy with the experience and memories we created and captured.


I'm super laid back, I go with the flow, and always have my client's vision and needs at the forefront.  I would describe my photography style as candid, playful, romantic, and emotive. I tend to steer away from the "smile at the camera" photos, we will definitely take a couple of those for grandma to hang on the fridge but I do direct my clients in a way that allows their playfulness and love to come out and I can get those truly amazing real moments captured that you will cherish forever. If you like my work and think we would be a good fit shoot me a message and we can begin planning your session!
