hi!

My name is Chantel, and I am a natural light, wedding and lifestyle photographer. I've been blessed to serve couples and families in the Guelph, Elora, Wellington County and surrounding areas for over 10 years. I am married to my best friend, and have a golden retriever named Cooper, he's the sweetest. I love spending time outdoors, forever in awe of the beauty and splendor this world holds. You could say I am very much in love with all the pretty things, and nothing makes my heart sing more, than photographing a beautiful wedding!

Growing up, I always had a camera in my hand. it's something I loved early in my life, and continue to fall in love with. Photography is my passion, and it would be my honour to be able to capture some of your life's most precious moments.

As a recent bride, I bring knowledge and experience to the wedding industry, and would be happy to help plan the perfect timeline to allow you to get the most out of your Wedding Photography.

At Chantel Dirksen Photography, our aim is to create beautiful images that showcase the love, laughter and happiness that people share with one another. With a natural light, journalistic approach, our aim is to capture the real moments, emotions and love on your special day or event!

Love Notes

“Thank you SO much. You were an incredible photographer. My family absolutely loved you. Seriously, all of them commented to me about how nice and fun you were. You did so much to help me out that day with supervising the tag cutting, veil management, making sure my dress was spread out the right way, and rallying my crazy family. Everyone there wants to hire you when they get married! Thank you for being so fun and easy to work with.
