St. Chelle is a collective of wedding photographers (Michelle Pullman and Jamie Street) with a like-minded approach to documenting the essence of a wedding day. Based in Southern California, the duo from St. Chelle shoot weddings worldwide.
What is a favourite service that you offer and why?
Being able to photograph weddings largely on film is a dream come true. A day (or weekend) filled with real moments and emotion, beauty and design, style, community and loved ones is what moves us to create visual memories of how it all felt. What on earth could be better?
How would you describe your style?
St. Chelle photographers favor a documentary style with a bit of an editorial flair. St. Chelle loves emotion, real moments, and people.
How long have you been a photographer?
Each photographer, decades! But wedding photography specifically, each full time for over ten years.
What is your ideal work destination?
We love working in locations that have a strong sense of place, with a story we can tell and a deep meaning and strong connection to our clients.
What inspires you?
Travel, emotions, fashion/personal style, people, children, dynamics, nature, architecture, films, colors, textures, flowers…….
What is your favourite travel destination?
Anywhere with water and/or trees.
Who is your dream client?
Our dream client chooses a location that is beautiful, but deeply meaningful to them. They will surround themselves with loved ones, and take care to consider what is most important to them about their wedding. While they might love attention to design, details or style (as do we!), they will ultimately choose to let go on their wedding day, be present and enjoy the moment, and know that while 99.9% of the time your photographer will get a photo of all of the perfect details, the true job of the photographer is to capture how it felt.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
Hire vendors you trust, communicate well ahead of time, then let go and be present for your wedding and enjoy the day!
