"When you photograph a face, you photograph the soul behind it."
I have been deeply drawn to the process of storytelling through images. Of capturing stills that give a glimpse of how you live and love. When a comfortable, open space is created, it gives way to honest expression and opens the door of your heart and soul. There is something so raw, real and special about unplanned, authentic moments; moments that showcase the real you, who you are, and who you have been created to be. I want to document all of you; the way your eyes light up when you smile; the laughs, the tears, and everything in-between. Every moment matters. Every moment is a memory, waiting to be captured and cherished forever.
My husband and I wanted to commemorate our five year anniversary with a quick photo shoot in the same city we got married in. We found Shantal through a fellow Victoria photographer and could not be more thrilled to have been connected with her! She is warm, sweet, positive and SO friendly which made us feel all the more comfortable. Even with 20 minutes to shoot, she captured so many sweet moments AND picked the most perfect location. These photos are treasures and we can't wait to have her capture our whole family next time we're in our favourite city!
I can't say enough great things about Shantal! I have been on quest for a photographer to use for my restaurant for ages now and then finally I met Shantal. She has a great aestethic, and needs little-no direction to produce wonderful content. She is easy to contact, and very quick to reply. She is always willing to be flexible with her schedule and come shoot last minute when needed. There is literally more I could ask from a photographer. It has been nothing but a pleasure working with her
My partner and I had such a memorable and wonderful time shooting with Shantal. There were so many factors that made it so great. First, the photos were incredible. like, JAW DROPPING. We both had watery eyes when we got to see all the magic in our gallery from Shantal. Second, the actual shoot was the most fun we've ever had in front of a camera. We genuinely remember it as a really fun date, where we got to dance and giggle and just unplug from the world around us. And third- she is the sweetest. person. ever! We LOVED hanging out with Shantal!
I chose to work with Shantal on the recommendation of a friend who had raved about her and she absolutely lived up to the hype. Shantal is warm, kind, creative, extraordinarily talented and has an amazing ability to make you feel so comfortable and at ease that you forget you’re at a photo session. Her ability to capture intimately beautiful and candid moments is second to none. I loved working with her and plan to use her services again for my future professional photography needs. Thanks Shantal!
I reached out to Shantal in the very last minute and asked her to capture our annual family Christmas card photo. What ensued was a lovely home session filled with genuine fun and laughter. Shantal accommodated our tight schedule and was an absolute dream to work with. I truly cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so much for our incredible photos - they are such treasures and we are so blessed to have met you.
