    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.

    Hi & Hello!

    Hey, I’m Shantal- also known as your friendly neighbourhood professional third wheel. I LOVE to laugh, kombucha is my drink of choice, and hugs are my handshake.

    I am a follower of Jesus. I have come to know and personally experience His unending love for me (and for you too!). He has filled my heart unlike anyone or anything else, and my desire is to glorify Him in all that I do.

    I am originally from Edmonton, but now live in beautiful Victoria BC. I opened my photography business 9 years ago, and have been so blessed by the people I have met over the years. This truly is such a fulfilling and beautiful job and I am so honoured to have the opportunity to capture so many special moments.

    Real talk- I could watch Pride and Prejudice + Sense and Sensibility over and over and never grow tired of it. I love so many aspects of that time/lifestyle- the clothing, the dances, the manner in which people communicated and treated each other, being some of my favourites.

    Let’s talk dreams for a minute. I would love to open an organic french bakery one day. I love experimenting with new recipes, and thankfully, my sweet family is always eager to try my latest culinary endeavours.

    A.

    My photography style is documentary. Capturing real life, love and interaction. The authenticity of natural, candid expression and emotion. I believe it is so important to take time to preserve and capture the realness of who we are, and the life we are living, in it's truest sense.
