My ultimate goal is to make your wedding day as stress-free as possible and this is reflected in my personality, my business approach and in the experience that I craft for my clients.
My focus always has been and always will be on the couple and their love for one another- and my primary role lies in creating timeless and romantic wedding photography that not only documents your day but allows you to creatively express your relationship for all the world to see.
I am passionate about capturing genuine moments of laughter or those silent raw emotional moments of love and during sessions, you can be sure you will feel comfortable and respected at all times. I strive to make my clients feel as though we have been friends for years and encourage laughter, story-telling and authenticity above all.
When I'm not behind the camera you can find me out hiking with my family, playing with my animals or enjoying a sweet treat with my coffee. My family means the world to me and I am lucky to have been married for 14 years and have been blessed with two amazing children.
I started photographing weddings in 2011- at the time I was a family portrait photographer and had never even considered weddings. My family and friends started asking me to photograph their special days and it only took one wedding to convince me I had found my calling!
Not long after I was booked for my first elopement and I was positively over the moon about it for weeks- combining my love for nature, hiking, photography and special moments was a dream come true, so I quickly added elopements to my skill set! I love being an elopement and wedding photographer.
In 2017 I finally made the leap to transferring my business focus to weddings - don't get me wrong, I still love photographing families, maternity and high school seniors - but my passion and calling is when two people vow to love each other for the rest of their lives and having the opportunity to capture that pivotal moment for them.
I deliver true-to-life color and natural images that will stand the test of time. I believe that documenting your wedding day this way leads to showcasing your photos for generations and looking back on your photos and seeing them just as it was. I am a full-time wedding photographer which makes it so I have more time available for you. I have seen my fair share of weddings and can help navigate any situation to help keep you focused on the fact that you are getting ready to marry your love!
ARE WE COMPATIBLE
It is important to have a connection with your photographer. We will be calling, emailing and texting for months. Spending time together at your engagement session, building a timeline and of course basically all day on your wedding day.
Friendly, kind and down to earth
Hard worker but also knows how to cut loose
More interested in documenting the memories than checking off a list of poses
In love with my photos
I love making friendships with couples and am committed to getting to know who you are. Happy to become your new friend.
All are welcome in front of my camera. Shantel Wall Photography does not and will not discriminate who is taken on as a client. Everyone's memories should be preserved and cherished.
Leave No Trace
The outdoors will be treasured. We stay on the paths, pack out what we bring in and keep our earth beautiful.
To produce the best experience I limit how many weddings I photograph each year.
