Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

This is my 12th year as a wedding photographer and I have photographed over 550 weddings as main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I always aim to showcase the couple's personalities, their souls and their unique love with my images. My photos are therefore storytelling and focused on the in between moments of raw, unscripted emotions. I also focus on creative portraits that show the client's personalities as well as their unique love and location. In 20 years, I would love my clients to look back at their wedding photos and relive the love, the joy, the tears, the laughter when looking at their photo album.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

From the getting ready part up until an hour or two into the dancing/party but I also offer full day or half day coverage. Please contact me for pricing.

I do not have a studio and am available for skype meetings.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I'm a very down-to-earth and fun-loving kind of person that will make you not just at ease in front of the camera, but be warned that we might end up having loads of fun with lots of laughter! ;)

In one word "unbelievable"! We had a very intimate and small wedding, with only our parents and siblings attending. This was truly our most special day,not only because we were tying the knot after 11 years, but we had loved ones with us who we have not seen in 5years and also 2 very special warriors who battled cancers and survived! I wanted somebody who could capture the special and happy moments and could not have been more happy with the end results. Christelle was professional and patient every step of the way! It never felt staged or planned; just natural and perfect! She has a fine Read More intuition and the ability to capture emotion beautifully. Whenever I look at our photos, I know exactly what I was feeling in the moment. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, every single time.

If you are looking for a well-established and confident wedding photographer, then look no further than Christelle! She went the extra mile from start to finish. Her professional, calm, and efficient demeanor, made for the most memorable photographs. Everyone at the wedding loved her! Even our engagement shoot was so much fun. We loved the way she was almost “invisible”, but captured those memories most precious to us. We could not have wished for a better photographer.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Christelle! We could not have hoped for more in terms of our pictures and capturing our special day. Christelle made us feel comfortable and we felt like we were in our element. She really has a great eye and she is an artist at heart. This is reflected in all her work. The uniqueness of her pictures and the way she captures emotion was the highlight for us. I really do hope we can work together again one day!
