my name is Chantel Dirksen, and I am a natural light wedding and lifestyle photographer serving the Wellington County, Guelph and surrounding areas. i'm married to a firefighter, love dogs, lipstick, ice cream and all things love.

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. i grew up on a dairy farm, and realized at an early age, that if you are passionate about anything, and if you work hard enough to chase your dreams, you will be successful. 

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.

​I would be honoured to be a part of capturing your precious milestones.

“When I first stumbled upon Chantel’s Instagram page I instantly fell in love with her photography style and knew she would capture my wedding day exactly how I wanted. When we met with Chantel for our engagement shoot we were so thrilled with how the photos turned out! She made us feel so comfortable (even my husband who hates having his picture taken) and made us look natural.
Even when she was met with an unfortunate family emergency she still went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was covered.”
