Chantal did such a phenomenal job with our wedding. Her preparation was meticulous and was tailored to our needs. She was willing to make multiple long drives to be able to meet with us in advance of the wedding and then to be there on the day. She also worked with us by phone before the day, since we live out of town. She helped us plan what shots we wanted and asked questions to help us figure out what we needed. She also talked us into a first look, which we didn’t think we wanted to do, but she was SO right – those are some of our favorite pictures!
Chantal was friendly to our guests and a complete pleasure to work with. She didn’t hesitate to jump onto furniture to get the shot she needed. She didn’t get in the way or make her presence felt during the day, but she was always available to be grabbed for a shot that we wanted. She also encouraged us to take as many pictures as possible outside, and now that we look at the pictures, we see exactly why and are grateful for her instincts!
Chantal was also tireless. She was there from 12 to 7 for the wedding and then eagerly jumped right in after the reception to take some night pictures with us. Her energy was amazing and kept us going, too!
Chantal’s second shooter, Nick, was also very professional and great to work with. It helped a lot to have two photographers to capture the moments of the day.
Now that we’ve seen the pictures, we are really blown away. The colors are vibrant, the emotions are so clearly captured, and the presentation is creative yet poignant. Chantal is helping us put together albums for our loved ones and guiding us through the ins and outs of the gallery. We couldn’t have asked for more and couldn’t recommend Paradis Photography more highly!
