A Magical Experience

Janet & Alan made our wedding such a special, memorable and beautiful day. Their space is truly magical and stunning. They are professional, warm, welcoming and so helpful in making sure the wedding party is comfortable and the best moments are being captured. We loved spending our wedding day at Chalet Studios and Janet & Alan helped make it a wonderful and beautiful experience for everyone.

Experience, professionalism, passion!

Hiring Janet and Alan was singlehandedly the best thing we did for our wedding (other than saying 'I DO' of course!). They were so professional but added warmth, depth and a personal touch which quickly made them feel like family. It was wonderful to watch them get genuinely excited for our special day, and when it did arrive, they were magnificent, on point and well complimented/received by our family and guests. They took incredible photos before, during and after. They had great ideas for set ups and totally went with all my ideas as well... Is there really a better recommendation than a stellar review? We loved getting to know Janet and Alan...finding out about their own love story helped us realize why they are so good at what they do. The fact that they have conjured up a long career and a successful business out of it is testament to their character. Who wouldn't dream of that kind of life? We adore them and stay in touch to this day even though we now live on opposite ends of the continent! Hire them today, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect memories captured exquisitely with passion and care!

From the moment we first spoke on the phone, to meeting Janet & Alan, to our Engagement photo session, to our Wedding Day...every moment was peace, warmth & love. Janet with her soft spoken voice and inviting smile, and Alan with his wit and charm, this duo made the past year so memorable, and I believe we have gained some lifelong friends out of the deal. With their passion and love of photography they work together seamlessly to capture the most amazing moments that truly embody your every feeling about how you want your special day captured. Our Wedding day was May 19th, 2017. The most magical day of our lives. We did it right, we chose the perfect venue, the perfect decorator, the perfect officiant, and most importantly the perfect photographers! From being able to use their studio and gardens to capture our first pictures and bonding moments with our wedding party and children, to being there and giving us the gift of our First Look which felt like the world had disappeared and it was just my future husband and I. My heart leaps as I think about that day and how perfect and dreamy everything was. We are blessed to have found Chalet Studios, and we are even more blessed that they were available for our wedding day. Knowing how excited we are, Janet gifts us with sneak peeks and previews that just take our breath away. I've always wanted to be a model, and our engagement shoot and wedding shoot transformed me into one for the day. The way Janet and Alan work together brought us peace, they were so organized and their ideas and quick thinking created the most amazing settings for beautiful moments. From the moment we arrived to the very end of our night they were there capturing our moments all the while having fun. We lived that day to fullest with full confidence knowing our every special moment will be captured. We had the most fun, as well as our children and wedding party while waiting for photos and being photographed. Janet and Alan were there for us every step of the way. We thank you sincerely with love from the bottom of our hearts for being such a special and important part of the first day of the rest of our most amazing lives. xo Tina & Carl

Very Helpful Years Later

We used Chalet when we got married 23 years ago and they were absolutely amazing and wonderful back then. They were very efficient, patient and captured all the moments and made it very memorable for us. We reached out to them a couple months ago as my husband passed away to upload a photo for his memorial card. They were extremely helpful on such short notice. They emailed us a few originals so that we could decide which one we wanted and what a huge difference it made on his card. It looked amazing thanks to Chalet!!

Chalet Studios made my wedding day photo dreams come true!

Janet and Alan are absolutely amazing people! They went above and beyond for us on our wedding day! They were always available to questions and were very quick to respond. We got married at Coachwood Golf and Country Club, which is directly across the street from their Chalet Studios. This was an absolute dream! Everything was so easy on the day. We had a first look in the gardens and took family photos inside their stunning studio. When it was time to head to the ceremony, we hopped in the car and pulled into the golf course in about 30 seconds. This made the day so stress free! Our photos turned out absolutely beautiful and we are so in love with them. There are so many options on their property for amazing photos. We got married in the fall and the colours on their property are incredible. We definitely recommend Chalet Studios for your wedding, or any event needing a photographer!

Such a great team of photographers!!

Janet and Alan were fantastic during our engagement and wedding day photography experiences. They took into consideration what my husband and I were wanting and always did their best to accommodate us. We loved our garden pictures at their beautiful home and our minds were at ease knowing we had their gorgeous studio in case of rain (though they pictures we decided to take inside the studio were also some of our favourites!). The pictures taken with the Monarch Butterflies, that they raise and release, are so stunning and unique. We highly recommend Chalet Studio & Gardens!

Hi there! My name is Janet, and I am one half of the Chalet Duo. I have a passion for capturing and creating magical images that will last a lifetime. My husband Alan and I have been working together for years, and we love what we do.

We spend a lot of our time making sure that the gardens are looking beautiful and ready for all the pictures we take. Weddings, families, and children are just a few of the moments we get to capture and preserve through our photography.

One of my favorite things to do is raising and releasing butterflies with the brides and grooms we work with. It's a beautiful way to start their new journey together and to remind them of the beauty in life.

When I'm not working, I enjoy going for walks with our two pups, Speedy and Sparky. They bring so much joy to our lives, and it's nice to get some fresh air and exercise with them.

I also love to travel and experience new places. There's something so exciting about exploring a new city or country and capturing its essence through my photography.

But the reason I love what I do is knowing that every image we create brings our clients back to an amazing moment in their life. It's a privilege to be able to capture those memories and preserve them forever.

Alan Arseneault
Owner - Photographer

I'm Alan, one half of the dynamic Chalet duo alongside my life partner Janet. With a passion for freezing moments in time, we've captured it all for over 1,000 wedding couples. As a wedding photographer, I'm not just behind the lens – I'm a people person, an energy enthusiast, a seasoned creative and dog lover.

When I'm not crafting beautiful images, you'll find me tending to our sprawling Chalet gardens. It's my sanctuary, where I channel my energy into nurturing the vibrant life around us. Photography isn't just a job for me; I love freezing those beautiful slices of time that make up this incredible journey we call life. Let's turn your Wedding into everything you imagine it will be.
