Bio photos taken by The lovely  Danielle Trista

well, hello there!

I'm Chenoa Allyse

I hope you'll feel right at home and pour yourself a cup of tea, while I share a little of my story! I started taking pictures young, around age twelve when my parents gave me my first film camera one Christmas. That camera came everywhere with me! 

In 2007 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! What Henri Cartier Breason said is true, "Your first 10,000 photos are your worst". I took so many pictures and made my younger siblings pose for more hours than most professionals models. That autumn I started my education at the Institute of Photographic Studies (IPS) & photographed my very first wedding. The rest as they say, is history.

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 each and every one of the incredible couples and families who have trusted me with 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.

I believe that life is a gift, and should be lived fully. For me this means 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 to tea.

Now that you a little about me, I'd love to get to know you!

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.   - Ansel Adams
