Canterbury Based Wedding Photographer

Creating raw, authentic, and intimate moments to pass down for generations to come! 
Let's have fun and create memories that allow you to be fully you!


As a photographer my dream is to photograph couples who value themselves just as they are... flaws and all; because that's the way God made us.


Chaznel was great! We were a little bit nervous as this was our first photo shoot but she was professional and super friendly which made it really enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Chaznel to anyone wanting to get stunning photos and have some fun along the way!

Being a photographer isn't just about taking the perfect image...

Being a photographer is about telling a story through images; it's the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's telling your story!


Hey you!

Chaznel here! Thank you so much for stopping by to view my stories... I absolutely love being a photographer and the freedom it allows for my creative mind. 

I'm sure you've come to my site because you are in need of a photographer, and you definitely have come to the right place if you are looking for someone who focuses on the candid and authentic side of love stories. 

My goal is to create images that don't need words to explain the emotion, the image themselves should tell you a story. My absolute favourite thing is to get home after a session or a wedding and finding those moments of pure joy. There's something so special about an image authentically created in the moment rather than posed (although there is always a right time for a posed photo). 

As a wedding photographer I totally understand the stress that goes into the planning, and that is why you never have to worry about the photography side of things. I make sure to give you a thousand and ten percent of my attention... just you and your big day. Your wedding or your session with me is a time where you can be in the moment and enjoy life... let go and just be. 

My specialty is DIY weddings, backyard weddings, and intimate elopements... you really can't beat the raw emotions these small and intimate days create. 

If you think that we would fit well and you would like to get in touch with me to book your phone consultation then fill in the form below... I'll be waiting xx
