Your investment with me includes a lot more than just beautiful photos. I have created a full wedding process to ensure you are getting the most out of your wedding photography, creating a custom experience tailored to each and every one of my couples.
“Sometimes you will never know the value of something, until it becomes a memory.” — Dr. Seuss
I just love that feeling of nostalgia when you look through a shoebox of old photos. Each photo has its own unique story. As I look through each photograph, I’m reminded of memories once forgotten. Or I am told a story of when my dad took my mom to Disney when she first came to the US, or when my grandma hiked up a mountainside in Iceland.
Together we’ll create classic, timeless images that you’ll love to look back at years from now. Wedding days are approached with a mixture of artistically directed & posed portraits with documentary style shots capturing real moments. I am organized, ready with a game plan… but also laidback and know when it’s best to step outside of the timeline. I want to be more than just another wedding vendor… I want to be a friend! I am here for you!

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO EDIT MY PHOTOS?
You receive a sneak peek gallery of 20-40 images within a few days of your wedding. Your final gallery will be delivered within 4-6 weeks.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Absolutely! If your venue requires a certificate of insurance from me, I will gladly send it their way.
HOW WILL MY PHOTOS BE DELIVERED?
Your photos will be delivered digitally via an online gallery called Pixieset where you may instantly download your digital images.
DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH NATURAL LIGHT?
For weddings, I do prefer outdoor ceremonies & natural light as that is what plays a major factor in achieving my style of photography. However, I have experience with low-light situations & I will shoot with off-camera flash when it is necessary.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Absolutely! I serve the surrounding areas of Orlando, FL, St. Augustine, FL & Jacksonville, FL. Travel fees are incurred for weddings outside of these areas. But I would love to chat more so we could make this happen! (I also have my passport ready!)
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Chantell Rae Photography (formerly Chantell Cruz Photography) was established in 2014. So professionally: 5 years. However, I've had a passion for photography since I was 13, so I’ve have a camera in hand for nearly 14 years now.
CAN I ORDER PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
Yes! You may purchase prints through your online photo gallery, and they will be printed through a trusted, professional lab and shipped directly to you.
