The Girl Behind The Camera
Hi! I'm Chantal, The girl behind the camera at Paisley Photography!
6 Fun Facts about Me!
1. I am a Calgary wedding & lifestyle photographer and I absolutely ADORE what I do! I love to capture family memories, lifestyle newborn photography, maternity sessions, engagement photos & branding photos.
3. I secretly L-O-V-E Antiquing and garage sale hunting and will 100% of the time pull over for a good free item on the side of the road!
4. I love roller coasters, but have blacked out on everyone I go on.
5. My favorite color is yellow and two out of my three cars have been yellow.
6. I got my LOVE of photography from my grandmother Frankie. She is the only person I have ever met that has taken more photos than I have.
Growing up I was was that kid out of the group that ALWAYS had a camera in my school backpack and then when I got older in my purse. I have loved photography my entire life and the way it freezes a moment in time. I specialize in Weddings, Destination Weddings, Engagements, Maternity, Newborn, Family, & Branding Photography. I have a Degree in Interior Design and I have always had a creative and artistic view to life. I am married to my absolute best friend and my constant! I have two of the the craziest but cutest animals; a dog named Clementine, and a cat named Cheryl. I’m pretty sure I would have a whole farm of animals if my husband would let me! I am also trying to figure out how I can add professional puppy cuddler to my resume. I love to travel, which is why I packed up my bags and was a flight attendant for the 8.5 years! Thankfully now both my feet are solidly on the ground as I get to capture my amazing client’s memories as my full time job. I believe that traveling and taking pictures throughout the world reignited my love and passion of photography. I truly am a free spirit with a added dose of goofy.
95% of the time it is just me you will see behind the camera, but book us for your wedding day and you will get to also see my amazing hubby Jason. He has been my second shooter from day one on wedding days. Not only is he big and strong to carry all my gear he is also has a super awesome eye for photography!
I would love to meet you and hear more about what special moments you would like captured. I truly believe there is no moment too small to not be able to cherish forever. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org because I want to hear all about you and you dreams for your session! Also feel free to check out my social media as I like to show some behind the scenes as little snippets of my everyday life!
As a couple we have traveled to 13 different countries & I have explored to 7 others when I was a flight attendant. That's 20 in total! I still have so many more spots on my bucket list with Croatia, New Zealand & Bali as my top 3!
I haven't met an animal I haven't loved or wanted to pet! You will usually find me hanging out with an animal at a party or loving on my own two sweet fur babies. My goal is to own a goat one day and name her Bea!
Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend
I am an extrovert by nature and connections are what drives me. Being married to my best friend for over a decade has been the best thing ever, and photographing couples & family memories is seriously the greatest gift!
Who is Chantal?
If you were to ask me to describe myself...
If you were to ask me to describe myself I would probably tell you I was a born and raised Alberta girl, who loves tacos and coffee (and could live on both for the rest of time). I can't resist a good sunset and every couple of months I feel the need to pack my bags and go on a new adventure! I am a self proclaimed animal snuggeler extraordinaire and my spirit animal is a kangaroo (I mean they have built in pockets). I have always had a creative mind & I knew I would alway being in a creative line of work. I have been Paleo for the last 4 years and I love to cook and bake paleo foods for my friends & family. All in all I am just a curly hair goof who loves to laugh and capture beautiful memories with my camera!

We recently had the opportunity to work with Chantal for our maternity pictures & then again for our newborn session. Chantal is a dream to work with. She is a beautiful & lovely person inside and out. Not only is she amazingly talented but also genuine, kind, patient, & very easy to work with. She guided us through each session effortlessly and made it fun & easy. We LOVED working with her and will be booking sessions again with her for all future family sessions.
Choosing Chantal to capture our big day was the best decisions we made surrounding our wedding. After she perfectly captured our love at our engagement session, we had zero stress going into our wedding day knowing that she already exceeded our expectations. They were incredibly easy to work with & we were able to relax and have fun with our guests. We can’t get enough of our photos & would highly recommend choosing Chantal for all your photos!
Chantal and her husband did such a great job at our wedding, & then we had her back for our session with our newborn twins. She is professional, bubbly, fun, and always looking for ways to improve the work she does. She has her own ideas and is receptive to suggestions, which we found great as neither of us are artistic. We have recommended her to many of our friends and family and will continue to do so.
