fun little extras
I am latin, and I can be loud.
Helpful with big groups, and to get you excited.
I'm from Costa Rica if you are curious.
If I see a dog I will most likely...pretend not to be freaking out of excitement. So if you guys have a pet (dogs prefered but I don’t mind all the other cute animals), and want to incorporate it in your photoshoot I would be amazing.
Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Star Wars
Anything supernatural or with weird plot lines
(I know I am a nerd)
Canada, USA, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Germany, Spain, France, Thailand, India, United Arab Emirates.
More to come!
I have been told my spirit animals are llamas and corgis.
I am extremely easy going and I love working with couples who love wedding details and imagery. Those who have a sense of adventure would love to work with me because I can't say no to travel, epic sunrises, or beautiful views.
I graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts so I do have a different way of seeing things and do appreciate the little things.
When I am not behind the lens, I am reading a book, hiking or walking, catching up on my favourite shows and movies on Netflix, playing the latest PS4 game or planning my next big travel adventure. And of course, hanging out with my best friend, my husband Greg.
I work mainly in the area of Southwestern Ontario, but I am willing to travel within Canada and abroad.

KHRISTEL STUDIOS AT A
WEDDING IN WILLOW SPRINGS VINEYARD
Khristel was absolutely amazing to work with right from the get-go. Very personable, friendly & always has your best interest in mind with everything! She is extremely organized and always willing to communicate with any questions you have prior to the big day. She has a great eye for choosing the best spots at your venue for photos, as well as the best timing to get the perfect shots. She is also very prompt with the timing of her photos afterward, which is so great! An incredible photographer and now a wonderful friend! She really felt part of the family & our special day wouldn't have been the same without her!
We just got our final digital photos back from Khristel for our wedding July 1st. Every single shot is beautiful and I can’t even think of a moment that was missed. We got to relive our big day all over again by going through our photos! Love the editing style, and the “fly on the wall” style of photography during the reception. Everything was perfect.
The day of the wedding was a breeze! and Khristel was great; she was fun bubbly and interacted with my guests and family. I didn't have to worry about asking her to do anything we were free to enjoy ourselves while she took photos and delegated guests and family for photos.
To sum it up Khristel is extremely professional, friendly, organized and accommodating all things I believe are very important when hiring a photographer. I would definitely recommend her and would use her again.
Khristel was the most phenomenal photographer for our engagement and wedding. We couldn't have asked for someone better! She was friendly, patient, good at giving direction without being bossy, organized, enthusiastic, happy to include our ideas... Plus, she was fun to hang out with and she helped me figure out the corset on my wedding dress! The photos turned out beautifully, she got every single shot we asked for and then some! They also arrived ahead of schedule and meticulously organized. Her selections were exactly what we wanted with SO many to choose from. We could never recommend her enough. Khristel takes gorgeous photos, but the experience of working with her calm, kind demeanor is honestly even better.
Khristel deserves 5 stars because of her professionalism, flexibility, kindness, and the quality of her work. My wedding photos were beyond my expectations, it was breathtaking.
