Having completed 3 years at college studying photography, and having run the business for a number of years, Chantal has now taken over the ownership of the studio and all the day to day management responsibilities. She is an excellent addition to the Ariane team as senior partner, bringing with her a fresh new approach both day to day on the client side as well as behind the camera on the creative side.

A skilled wedding photographer with over 200 weddings to her credit, she has now launched her own studio brand here at Ariane, as well as still shooting in a supporting role to the sister company With This Ring Wedding Photography .

Chantal is very much the studio based member of the team and will handle all day to day enquiries, bookings and facilitate model days etc. She is also on hand to undertake the vast majority of the in house domestic work and advise on lighting set ups etc.

In addition, Chantal also has qualifications in animal welfare which works well with her own rather unique brand of Picture Purrfect Pet – specialising in all aspects of domestic and commercial animal photography.
