I'm Arielle, + I'm so glad you're here.
Born + raised on the west coast, I'm a full time wedding + elopement photographer based in the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia! When I'm not capturing love stories, you can find me adventuring on the coast with my hubby + toddler, adopting house plants or grabbing a latte + hunting for home decor gems.
I am a lover of aesthetics + all things that are seeped in tradition or evoke nostalgia.
My why comes down to creating beautiful things that make people feel something.
I've always been doing something creative, even if it took me a while to realize that photography was the one. Graphic designer, wedding planner, stylist, interior designer - you name it, that's what I wanted to be when I grew up. But nothing ever felt like the perfect fit until I stumbled into photography - and after I photographed my first wedding, I was totally smitten! Being a wedding photographer has blended everything I've ever been passionate about into one incredible job - from creating your perfect wedding timeline, to helping you style your session, to designing a stunning wedding album layout for you - I seriously love it all.
But it's not just about that side of things. I always knew I wanted to do something meaningful, but I wasn't sure it was in the cards for me since I was such art + aesthetics person. You might think it's a bit much to say that photography is a meaningful endeavor, but every time I deliver a gallery I can feel that it is.
It's the way your lover looks at you when you're not looking, how your dad tears up when he sees you in your dress for the first time, your Grandmothers hands helping you into your jewelry. Those are the special moments and photography is an investment in capturing them so they can be looked back on for a lifetime. I don't take that responsibility lightly and I want you to know that I'm invested in you too!
I am constantly inspired by all the beauty + love in this world and I am so honored that I get help people hold on to + remember the most love filled moments in their lives!
