Will my fiancé and I meet with you before our wedding day?

Absolutely! I want to meet with you and learn all about your wedding. I’ll tell you more about me, show you more of my work, and learn more about you both your personalities and your particular needs and desires.

What makes you different from other photographers I see on the Internet?

Photography is a very personal thing to me. It’s not a job. I take being a professional photographer very seriously. In many ways, it is art to me!

I am always trying to capture the little differences that turn an otherwise good photo into an incredible photo. Sometimes a subtle difference can make all the difference in the world. Only a professional photographer can do that and only after years of experience and a lot of hard work!

Do you have back-up equipment in case your camera breaks?

Absolutely. First, I use the most professional photography equipment available in the market place today. It is extremely reliable. All images are captured digitally, and I have the most current lighting equipment (and lighting makes a huge difference in your final photos). Plus, I always have a back-up camera and flash, and other appropriate equipment.

Do you work alone or do you have an assistant to help you?

I always have an assistant with me which happens to be my husband and I think that makes a huge difference. It makes a photo shoot go so much more smoothly and also allows me to focus my full attention on you!

If I hire you as my photographer, when it comes to the day of my wedding are you going to send someone else?

No! If you hire me, you get me Chantal! You will not get anyone else but me. I only shoot one wedding per day and that allows me to focus and devote all my time to you on your special day.

Why should I hire a professional photographer for my wedding? I have a cousin with a fairly good camera who said he would do my photography.

Sadly, I’ve talked to too many brides who said they made this horrible mistake. Remember, you can’t redo your wedding.

When you hire a professional wedding photographer, you are hiring them for their skill and creativity. Professionals are experienced in dealing with different situations: they can set up poses expertly, capture candid moments, adjust to different lighting conditions (e.g., indoors, outdoors, shadows), and balance colours properly. And, of course, they are capable of giving you an exceptional final product: amazing pictures that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

How much do you charge for a wedding?

Pricing and packages start at $2,100. However, it’s important to note that every wedding is as unique as the bride and groom because everyone has different requirements and desires. As a result, I don’t have a one-price wedding. The best thing to do is to confirm availability and book a no-obligation consultation with me by email at info@chantalbenoit.com or call me at 613-841-1469.

How soon after my wedding will I get to see my photos?

You can expect your photos in about three weeks.

Can you help me make a coffee table book from my wedding photos?

Yes, I can. I will be glad to give you my professional advice on creating a coffee table book with your wedding pictures. I can discuss all the options available to you, and show you examples when we meet.

How far in advance are you booked?

Many of the brides and grooms I work with book a full year in advance.

Is a deposit required?

Yes, a deposit is required to reserve and hold your date.

Do you offer engagement photography sessions?

Yes, I do! We can discuss this when we speak on the phone or when we meet.

Do you charge for travel?

There is no charge for travel if your wedding is taking place within a one hour drive of Ottawa. If it is farther away, some travel charges may apply.
