hi! I'm so happy you're here.

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 12 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 splendour 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!

Photography is my passion, and it would be my honour to be able to capture some of your life's most precious moments.

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! For portraits, we offer guided posing to ensure you photos are aesthetically pleasing, well lit and timeless.

these are a few of my favourite things..

dogs - cows (let's be real, I love all animals!) music - sunsets - home decor & decorating - pasta - ice cream - chai tea lattes - good skin care & lipstick - walks in nature - dancing - my canon camera with a 50 mm lens - a beautiful golden hour moment.. but most importantly, Jesus <3
