Behind the Camera
Chantelle Prejean is a Professional Photographer shooting out of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. She studied at the University of North Texas earning a degree in Marketing and Photography. She's an eclectic, honest, and adventurous person who thrives on making people smile. When she isn't editing images, you can likely find her outside in the garden, playing guitar, or scouting antiques at local shops.
She found her passion in photography through music and began shooting concerts in 2009. In 2013, Chantelle co-founded Static Magazine, a music outlet that she still shoots music for today. Since then, she has expanded her love to Portraiture, Wedding, and Landscape photography.
Chantelle's photography has been published via Jackson Guitar, McGraw-Hill Education, Texas Inked Magazine, Bliss Bridal Magazine, Austere Magazine, Prosthetic Records, and Static Magazine.
Chantelle is available for both destination shoots and events in Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, Austin, and Houston. She adores traveling (minus the turbulence) seeking beautiful souls and sights.
" We had spent 15 months planning the most amazing outdoor wedding ever. We interviewed several photographers, and narrowed down to a couple. Then we met with Chantelle and hired her before the meeting was even over. She was great! Down to earth, interesting, excited about her job. She asked lots of questions, figuring out just what type pictures were important to us, planning all the places on our property we wanted to use. She had great ideas. Then the day before my wedding, the rain began. Eleven inches in 24 hours. Every plan had to change. Our great picture ideas, not possible. Then, Chantelle shows up, telling us she has come up with some new ideas. She had spent the day putting LED lights in a clear umbrella. After our ceremony, outside the church, she took the most amazing picture ever. A kiss, under the umbrella, clouds in the sky, raindrops falling, the hay bales in our pasture seen in the distance. If this would have been the only photograph we had of the whole wedding, it would have been worth it! But it wasn't all. We also got wonderful pictures of the events of the whole day. Getting dressed, the ceremony, traditional wedding party pictures and the crazy reception! It was an A+ job, way beyond our expectations! "

" If you are looking for someone easy to work with and genuinely interested in her clients' opinions and ideas, Chantelle is your photographer. She made our photos one less thing we had to worry about on our special day, and came prepared to handle anything. The end result truly captured the simple beauty and intimacy of our wedding! "
