Hi! I’m Chantel

Dorset Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Photography by Chantel

I am a Wedding and Family photographer based in Dorset covering the South West and beyond. Creating beautiful and emotive images is my passion!

I love to capture memories in a fun, natural and romantic style, creating images which will be treasured for generations.

I love what I do and meeting new and amazing people on my photography journey is a wonderful part of my job.

I am very lucky to live in the beautiful county of Dorset just on the Wiltshire border, surrounded by wonderful venues and locations. I also love to visit new places across the UK and abroad, so if you are planning a destination wedding, I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for visiting my website, I hope you enjoy looking around.

If you would like to get in touch you can do so here.

My Style & Approach

You probably don’t like having your photograph taken. Me Too! It’s why I prefer to behind the camera! My approach is relaxed, fun and unobtrusive. I want you to feel comfortable and enjoy having me around, which is why its important for me to get to know my couples.

My style is a mixture of documentary and creative photography with a sprinkle of the traditional. I love to capture those candid and relaxed moments which just happen naturally, but I also enjoy creative portraits which require a little more direction. Big or small, traditional or alternative, whatever the occasion, I love them all!

I would love to tell your story through my images whether it’s your wedding day, engagement, family portrait or even a branding shoot for a new business.

Have a look at my portfolio and if you feel I am the photographer for you please get in touch.

I would love to hear from you!
