well, hello there!
I'm Chenoa Allyse
I started taking pictures young, around age twelve when my parents gave me my first film camera on Christmas morning. That camera came everywhere with me! Several years latter I made the switch from film to digital & loved the new found freedom of being able to take as many pictures as my heart desired! Autumn of 2007 I started my education at the Institute of Photographic Studies (IPS) & photographed my very first wedding. The rest as they say, is history.
Ansel Adams once said, " We don't make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, and the people we have loved." This is so true and why it is important to me that you are here on my bio page. Before my career started I was a sentimental girl who who took way too many pictures of my own family...in a lot of ways that's exactly who I still am. I believe that life is a gift, and should be lived fully. For me this means always being on the look out for beauty, enjoying as many sunsets as possible and remembering to count my blessings often. My sisters are my best friends and no one can make me laugh like my little brother can. I think that road trips are always a good idea. And I never say no sitting down with a friend over a cup of tea.
I have fallen in love with wedding photography and am passionate about serving couples and capturing the moments they never want to forget! And yet I adore little kids way too much not to take family and newborn sessions as well. I'm so grateful for the incredible couples and families who have trusted me to capture their memories and become friends in the process. Photography has become one of my favourite ways to love people, and remind them how valuable they are.
Now that you a little about me, I'd love to get to know you!
