        My style // My goal is to capture you as authentically and truthfully as possible. I love being deeply involved in each one of my couples days; from the initial planning, to the months leading up- I am always there to offer advice, tips and tricks to make sure your day goes smoothly. On the day of your wedding, my focus is to be so much more than a vendor- I’m your hair fixer, dress holder, kleenex giver, smile maker, friendly reminder to breathe and relax, and so much more- you will find me blending in with your friends and family celebrating your love story! I love this job and am so grateful to have the opportunity to capture so many love stories!

        Shantal is not only an amazing photographer she is reliable, personable and really cares about the people she is working with! I am so happy that I found Shantal to do our engagement and wedding photos, we have gotten so many compliments on her photos! We couldn't be happier to have her capture our special day. You won't go wrong if you book Shantal :)

        Oh my goodness were do I even begin! Shantal as a professional and as a person is absolutely lovely. My fiance and I are not big on being in front of a camera but Shantal had it so we both had a lot of fun and even more importantly gave some of the most beautiful photos of ourselves we have ever had!!! Shantal also took the time to give us sneak peek photos the next day which was really nice because I have never been very good at waiting and I was so excited see them. I cannot wait till our wedding day and the photos that will follow it!

        Photoshoots with Shantal are a dream!!! This lovely lady knows how to capture everyday beauty in relationships with an eye for gorgeous backdrops and stunning lighting. You will have so much fun being yourself in front of the camera making precious memories for years to come and then be amazed when you view the photos!!! Shantal is truly a creative at heart and skill, she is very kind and professional and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend Shantal for your next shoot, whether that be a engagement, wedding, anniversary, family occasion or really just for some fun memories!!!

        Shantal has blown me away over the years that I've known her! She had taken my informal college grad photos, my maternity photos, my marriage photos, and so much more! As a photographer myself, I truly understand how important it is to pick the right photographer to capture those special and important moments in your life. Shantal has been there for 3 major ones, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

        FAQ

        1) Describe your wedding style.
        My photography style is a mixture of documentary, creative, and a little bit of edge. Sure, it’s nice to have posed pictures of the bride and groom smiling nicely at the camera- but I think a wedding is so much more than that. It’s about documenting a love story. Not just the big moments, but every moment, every glance, every tear in-between. Those moments that capture a love story.

        2) Why are engagement sessions included?
        As I am intimately involved in your wedding day, I hold it to the utmost importance that we develop a good relationship before your day arrives. I include a complimentary engagement session with all wedding packages. These sessions are a perfect way for us to spend time together, just the three of us and for you to become very comfortable infront of the camera and get to know my photography style.

        3) Who is your client?
        I will be honest, I am not for everyone, and everyone is not for me. I want to work with couples who love creativity, and out-of-the-box ideas. More importantly, if you are solely looking for a vendor, for a photographer to simply show up the day of, complete their job, and call it a day, then I am not for you. I’m about relationship. I’m talking investing. I want to know you and feel like part of the family come your wedding day.

        4) Do you specialize?
        Yes and no. Though I love intimate weddings, I photograph quite a variety. I want to be as intimately involved in documenting your day as I can be. I utilize natural light to it’s fullest and love to zero in on weddings that are located outdoors or in beautifully lit indoor venues. Church rooms or community halls- not so much; I generally stay away from those.

        5) How long will it take to receive our pictures?
        Depending on your wedding coverage, I will spend 20-40 hours editing your images. You will receive your gallery of edited images between 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. Your images will be delivered two ways- via an online downloadable gallery, as well as a USB.

        6) Do you have insurance?
        Yes!
