about chantell

Hey, friend! My name is Chantell — pronounced Shawn-tell OR Shahn-tell, both works! I’m a fine art, natural light wedding & lifestyle photographer living in Orlando, Florida. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors of Science in Sport and Exercise Science. Yet here I am: camera in hand and photographing couples in love on the weekends and sweet families during the week. Why? Because I love capturing laughter, love, and connection. Preserving these moments gives me joy.

When I'm not behind the camera, you can probably find me at Disney World, sipping on some black coffee, playing video games, practicing calligraphy, or cuddling with my dachshund.

By the way, if you want to include dogs in your wedding or session, I’ll love you forever.

My philosophy

Wedding days are approached with a mixture of artistically directed & posed portraits with documentary style shots. My ultimate goal is to capture sweet, genuine moments so when you look through that gallery, your heart fills with those same feelings as you relive your wedding day.

I live for natural light, simplicity, luscious florals, & thoughtful details.

I also believe there’s beauty in everything.

Cliché, right? But I wholeheartedly believe in that. And my goal is to capture your wedding / session as beautifully as possible.

I make sure to treat my clients like family & my dedication to my clients is what sets me apart.
