about me

Hey 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, our dog and our little toddler. I have been a photographer for 12 years & shooting weddings for the past 5. 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 weddings and elopements but I also love family connection sessions, couples & engagement sessions & creative powerful portraits. 


I honestly just love creating magic with others, I love to give my clients a great experience when they book with me. We get to know each other before our session and then I third wheel you around in a really fun way and document a special time in your life, we're pretty much BFFs after that. I want you to look back on your images forever and be so happy with the experience and memories we created and captured.


My intention is to tell your story through my images. The process from the time you inquire till the time I deliver your photos should be easy and seamless. By getting to know each other and building a relationship you will feel SO much more comfortable in front of my lens to be you guys!  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.
