HI I’M KHRISTEL!
My name is Khristel and I am a wedding and boudoir photographer based out of St. Catharines Ontario focused on celebrating uniqueness, creating emotive, fun and candid photos.
My name is pronounced “Kris-tel”. I know some people get confused on how to say it because of the H, but just ignore its there. I am the girl with the camera, the gal who will tell your story. My friends see me as adventurous, driven, kind, optimistic and trustworthy. I can't wait to meet you!
THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR BADASS LITTLE SELVES
MY PHOTO STYLE
I love working with clients who want beautiful natural real looking images. Our style is a mixture of photojournalism, lifestyle and creative portraiture. Why so many different ways of shooting? Coming from a creative background, we find that a mix of these creates not only a story but also some epic images for our clients.
My shooting style is also extremely candid. 95% of our clients ask us "but Khristel we don't know how to pose or how to look good. We hate posy stuff"! I photograph my clients through prompts. That means I tell you to do things like "Squish each other to death or Let's go have a dance party!". Most of my clients feel like they hung out with me rather than get their photos done. So at the end of the day they feel as if they were guided, not posed and genuinely had fun.
If this sounds like the photographer you want to have! I would be absolutely thrilled to connect with you and learn more about your project!
I have over 4 years of experience and over 75+ weddings on my belt and over 50 commercial clients. I love to photograph smaller intimate weddings, elopements and unique weddings in beautiful venues. My favourite types of weddings- whether big or small- are the ones where the focus is on the couples I photograph. Couples that let themselves feel and do what they want on their day tend to allow me to get close and create authentic and candid images. I am also LGBTQ+ and black people friendly! I want everyone and anyone to feel and be themselves!
I am really proud of my work and what I do, and I take a lot of pride in creating images that my clients love. To do this we communicate a lot through our relationship as my client. I give you a lot of tips for your sessions so you are ready to have the best photographs taken.
