About Chanon de Valois

My story

I am Canadian born and raised and have lived in Australia, but the UK has been my home for more than 20 years.

I’m a third-generation photographer – my father and grandfather were photographers before me and it’s the only job I’ve ever wanted to do. I initially worked in fashion, commercial and forensic photography, which sound like a million miles away from weddings! But I learnt a lot about dealing with people, adapting to different situations, and the importance of attention to detail – key strengths which are vital in my business today as a wedding and portrait photographer.

I’m privileged to have photographed weddings all over the world in some of the most stunning locations, including a boat on the River Seine in Paris, a beach wedding at one of the Great Lakes in Canada and at famous venues in London. But it’s often the most intimate and relaxed occasions which are the most memorable, and I’m equally happy taking photographs in a field with your dogs, as I am in a palace!

Whatever the location, I focus on capturing the essence and emotion of your wedding, without interrupting the enjoyment of your day. So, when you open your wedding album in many years to come, you’ll instantly remember how you felt – the excitement, the love, the laughter and the tears, and special memories that will last a lifetime.
