The CHANTAL ELISE TEAM
In the business world, you’ll often hear the advice to “niche down” and do one thing–or perform only one type of photography–for success. Our “niche” is that we don’t “niche.” We are milestone photographers because our clients are more than customers to us–they are lifelong friends, and we are the people documenting their lives–from first falling in love, to marriage, to building a family and more.
EXCLUSIVE 5-STAR REVIEWS ON ALL PLATFORMS
For eleven years now, the photography business has offered clients high quality photos from engagements to newborn shoots, and everything in between. With exclusively 5-star reviews from every platform–Google, Facebook, Wedding Wire and The Knot–it’s clear that customers are number one at Chantal Elise Photography. The great reviews are a direct result of the care we take with our clients from start to finish, and throughout the photo experience.
As photographers, we know that life is worth documenting, and Chantal has been doing just that with her camera since she began shooting family sessions and weddings in 2009. If you are booking an engagement, family, senior session or any wedding or portrait package with only one photographer, you’ll be working with Chantal to create your photos! You can expect lots of laughs, easy conversation, and plenty of direction during the time together. Chantal is fun, easy going, artistic, and quick to connect with you and your loved ones, especially children. This is because of her background in teaching for many years!

Ben joined the CEP team when he and Chantal were married in 2015. In the beginning, he worked as an associate shooter at weddings, helping to capture beautiful details, emotional first looks and joyous wedding ceremonies. Clients have always appreciated his relaxed and social personality. He’s also a tender-hearted guy who does a great job nabbing those sweet, candid moments you care about on your special day. And with every precious photo he has snapped, the business has grown. Eventually, Ben joined the team full-time, and you can now find him behind the scenes as a chief photo editor and blogger, as well as assisting and shooting during portrait sessions and weddings with 2nd-shooter perspectives.
Together, we’ve built a photography company that cares deeply about capturing your precious milestones in a way that will honor them forever, with a classic film and lifestyle approach. And because we’re also married people and parents, we understand so many of the barriers that might be holding you back from getting your photos taken, whether it’s trouble with your schedule, or just plain feeling nervous about choosing an outfit.
We’d love the honor of being YOUR milestone photographer–please reach out and say hi!
