hi!

My name is Chantel, and I am a natural light, wedding and lifestyle photographer. I've been blessed to serve couples 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. I love spending time outdoors, forever in awe of the beauty and splendor this world holds.

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

“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.”
