Chantal is a small wedding (sometimes called tiny or initimate wedding) and elopement photographer based in both the Niagara and Waterloo Region serving all of Ontario. She is available for destination weddings across Canada and some international destinations (if you are Canadian citizen).

Chantal's photography style is all about emotions and movement, capturing moments you can revel in. Chantal focuses on getting moments; from the details to the candids, from a couple posed shots for the family, to those moments of real emotion for you to treasure. She wants you to revel in the photos and the memories for a lifetime.

Chantal's photography style comes from her background in fine art film photography with a focus on light, shadows and using them within the storytelling of your day. Chantal's editing style is a combination of true to colour with an air of moodiness. Chantal's goal is to work with you to tell your story throughout the experience using a combination of fine art influence with a documentary storytelling heart.

Chantelle is an amazing photographer! We chose her because of her love of photography which is portrayed through her images. We absolutely love our engagement and wedding photographs.
She was a pleasure to work with! She has a relaxed demeanor, but assertive when she needed to be. Chantelle meshed well with us, our wedding party and our guests.
She truly captured the mood, atmosphere and emotion of the day. When we look back at our photos, they make us tear up every time, because of all the special moments she was able to capture on our wedding day!

Chantal Davidson was a pleasure to work with. If I could give her more stars I would.

She was very responsive by phone and emails, professional and personable. She has a way of putting her clients at ease. During our photo session she helped me and my husband feel very comfortable. That made for capturing precious and genuine moments between us. I love her balance between candid photos and posed photos. She has an incredible talent, and is truly an amazing photography, with training experience world wide.

The results of her pictures truly speak for themselves - absolutely breathtaking visuals and stunning pictures.

Lovely experience, highly recommend!

Chantal was amazing to work with. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera (we are both camera shy/awkward). She captured all of the photos we requested so beautifully and had some amazing ideas for poses we hadn't considered. Working with Chantal was really fun and enjoyable, and we are THRILLED with how the photos turned out. Chantal is so talented, all of our friends and family members LOVE how the photos captured the special day. We also really appreciated how she sent us some 'sneak peek' images so quickly after our wedding as we couldn't wait to see how they turned out. Highly recommend hiring Chantal for all your photography needs.

Beautiful photos, friendly and professional service

I cannot recommend Chantal enough! She was so sweet and professional and put in so much more work than any other photographer we spoke to. The photos turned out more beautiful than we ever imagined and she is also one of the sweetest people.

Amazing Experience

My partner had a very small elopement in Haliburton, Ontario in October 2021. Chantal was there for us every step of the way, I love her style of photography, it's very warm and nature-esque and I love the shots she captured of our day. She knows how to run her business and she does it extremely well, everything was on time, she helped us find everything we needed and really made us excited for the elopement. We trusted her a lot with all of our details of our day and she had us every step of the way. If I am ever in need of a photographer for another event I know where to go. I promise you won't be disappointed by hiring Chantal as your photographer!

Elopement In The Woods

Chantal was an amazing choice for our elopement!! She gave us great quality photos, she was super flexible and took her time to get our fairytale photos in the woods. She’s fun to hangout with, she has a good sense of humour, and the pictures she took captured our day perfectly. She gave us a great variety of different photos and had a good eye for lighting. We would definitely hire her again!!

Chantal was great to work with!

Chantal was super helpful from start to finish. Not only did she explain all the photography details but also helped us by suggesting places and helping out on the day of the wedding. She is great and easy to work with, she was always quick to respond to any inquiries and super easy to contact. All the pictures came out beautifully and she delivered them timely!

Chantal was incredible, and an instrumental part of our day

We cannot recommend Chantal enough, she was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From the start of the process until the end she was so much more involved than we could have hoped for. She took so much time to get to know us, our wedding, and our needs and wants from photos. She spent a lot of time getting to know us personally and our relationship and that effort bled into the photos as they just perfectly feel like us. On top of that, she was very accommodating to numerous changes to our plan due to COVID, including traveling to Collingwood on two weeks’ notice.

Chantal took the time to help us plan the logistics of our day, what photos we would need, and provided so many resources to help us plan the perfect day. Chantal fit in with our family and friends so well, to the point that it felt like we had been friends for years. She was an instrumental part of our day, and we are so happy that we chose her as our photographer!

Meet the team

Chantal Davidson
Chantal Davidson
Owner and Photographer

Since you are basically hiring me to stalk you, you might want to know a bit about myself. Besides the fact that I am a Kitchener + Niagara Wedding Elopement Photographer.

I want to help you see yourselves as individuals and as a couple. I want to get to know you! This means that yes, I will take photos of you, BUT I also want to get to know you. So when we meet up, have a drink, get our exploring I ask you about your lives together. Like an investigator, think Veronica Mars, but my goal is to get to know you so I can photograph you better. I want you to feel GOOD, like dang this experience was amazing and I haven’t even seen the photos yet. I care about you, and I have your back!

I am a photographer that loves to capture people's love stories, from the engagement to the wedding day, the adventure sessions to the anniversary sessions and those maternity photos, documenting people's love stories is not only a passion but a great honour.

I am addicted to coffee and most days you can find me trying out new cafes to add to my list of favourites or trying out making cold brew coffee to bring along on wedding days. When I am not working on my business, I am usually dreaming of my next travel adventure (and the landscape photographs that I will take), snuggling my dog, exploring new hiking spots for future adventure sessions and drinking wine while catching up on tv. I love figuring out new gluten-free recipes and finding restaurants that I can eat at (joys of being celiac).

I am a photographer that loves to capture people's love stories, from the engagement to the wedding day, the adventure sessions to the anniversary sessions and those maternity photos, documenting people's love stories is not only a passion but a great honour.

Send me an email if you have any questions! Can't wait to hear all about your love story!
