THE CHANTAL SOKHORN WEDDING EXPERIENCE

Intentional

Effortless

Compassionate

You hope to find a photographer for your wedding that care as much about your celebration as you do. That is why I’ve committed to taking on no more than 17 weddings each year to ensure I can give your special day the care and attention you deserve. By personalizing everything from your client guides to your personalized keepsake, I carefully and consistently create an experience meant just for you. 

You value luxury, fashion, and quality—whether it is the heirloom piece of art hanging in your entryway or the fireplace mantel. I am here to serve you in more ways than just flooding a gallery with luminous, timeless images. With a concentration on eliminating stress, my full client experience is effortless from booking day to delivery day and beyond.

You are the kind of person who drops everything to be there for your friends. I am the kind of person who drops everything to be there for you. Whether it is my wedding-day bag full of wedding emergency kits such as teeth whitening strips, knitting needle, and garment tape, my intention is to serve you. Always. 

“From the beginning, Chantal wanted to get to know us as a couple—our likes and dislikes. Throughout the whole thing, she was there to help guide us through the process; she helped us with photo ideas, locations, outfits, and everything! She made our experience a breeze.”

I. Getting to know You

Above all else, your wedding day is so sacred and unique.
I firmly believe in celebrating your uniqueness, it’s vitally important to me that we connect on a personal level. So, after receiving your inquiry, we will set up a call or in-person consultation to get to know each other. I look forward to learning how you two met, where you got engaged, and what your life together is like. I want to get to know who you truly are. Then we can dive into my approach and your expectations for wedding photography, answering any questions that come up along the way. I can wait to share my passion for this special piece of your wedding day with you!

Let’s capture your engagement while guiding you to be comfortable in front of the camera.
Your engagement is so much more than just Save the Dates.  It is about the process of getting to know each other and providing insightful guidance on how to be effortless in posing. I will work with you to create a mood board and style for the session. 
So, let’s meet before our session for a coffee or cocktail (blood orange Martini, anyone?) to ensure you’re comfortable with me. This process, we will spend an hour together capturing beautiful moments of genuine emotion. Then, we will have a blast documenting your love story in a location that is special to you and your fiancé. After just two weeks, you’ll have a gallery full of photos to treasure!

The Journey

Iv. CREating Your plaN

As your celebration approaches, I will closely with your planner during your planning process, to ensure your wedding day is effortless.
When you receive your Wedding Day Questionnaires, the final planning process kicks into high gear. We will dig into everything from your day-of timeline (if you don’t have a wedding planner, I can create this with you!) to your family portrait list. I also familiarize myself with the names and faces of your wedding day VIPs ensuring I am attentive to their needs and making them present in your gallery. Then, a week before your wedding day, we will have a final call to double-check timelines, locations, and expectations. This ensures we are all on the same page and that there are no unpleasant surprises. This will be like a massive exhale for you, leaving you feeling relaxed and confident.

-Kristina

the Journey

A: Absolutely. You will not have to worry about making any of those confusing decisions because I will expertly guide you throughout the entire process. During the consultation call, I will gather information from you so I can recommend a package based on your desires. 

Q: We are not sure how many hours we will need to book. Can you guide us?


Q: Will you retouch and airbrush our images?


A: While I edit every image in your gallery to match the signature style you see here on my website, and I will lightly retouch images, I do not offer full airbrushing or extensive editing on your images. I believe you are beautiful exactly as you are, and I feel it would be a disservice to you to drastically alter the way you look in your images. Let’s celebrate the beauty of authenticity together! 


Q: Do you offer portrait, boudoir, or maternity sessions?

A: Yes, I offer a variety of sessions outside of my traditional wedding packages. Whether it is a boudoir session to make some gorgeous engagement gifts for your spouse-to-be or a maternity session as your new family grows, I would love to document other aspects of your journey. Simply send an inquiry my way asking about the particular session you are interested in, and I will be in touch to share more!
 

Q: We are a little camera shy. Do we have to do an engagement session?

A: I highly recommend all my couples do an engagement session this is a great way to be comfortable in front of the camera and getting to know each other.  In addition, for you to learn my process of posing. If you have some inspirations, share your visions with me during the consultation call, and I will offer my advice.

 

Q: How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?

A: I recommend reaching out at least nine months in advance of your wedding date. My calendar books up fast, so the best chance of having your weekend open is if you reach out far in advance.
