Chanon Valois Photography

Chanon de Valois Photography

As a professional photographer based on the London border in Essex, with a passion for making brides’ days special, I take my job very seriously. Taking the stress out of weddings is what I do best. I want you to relax and focus on having the time of your life, while I capture every precious moment and create the picturesque images you’ve been dreaming about since you were a little girl.

Dave Hadley

So why us then?

  • Well, I promise we will be completely upfront and honest with you every step of the way. For example, I often recommend that you meet up with at least two or three photographers before deciding on which one you would like to work. This is how you avoid getting the wrong photographer for you… it not only gives you a basis for comparison, but helps you pick one that suits your personalities best. If that’s not us, that’s fine! We can’t all be perfect for everyone.
  • We use professional cameras and lenses to ensure excellent picture quality, including backup equipment should anything go wrong.
  • You wont find us bossing you or your guests around. And we do our best to be as invisible as possible during the day. Many people have reported how they didn’t realise I was there shooting a particularly fun or emotional moment.
  • We’re very hard-working. I almost never stop shooting during the day and am constantly on the move in an effort to find the right angles and locations.
  • We are members of National and International organisations BNI and FSB.
  • More than anything though, we love what we do. I truly enjoy photographing weddings and documenting your special day.

We cover Essex, Hertfordshire and North London primarily, but will consider jobs pretty much anywhere. If you think we’d like each other – please contact me. You can email me, or call me on 07810 563838. I’d love to share a Coffee and chat about your loves, lives and your wedding (with no obligation whatsoever).
