What do you get when you have a vineyard wedding, a princess bride and a real life prince charming? Welcome to Alli and Matt’s beautiful wedding in Niagara on the Lake. I’m a little late on blogging this wedding (they’ve been married for a year an a half - whoops!), but I’m hoping you’ll forgive me because the pictures are flipping gorgeous and such a lovely representation of how special their wedding day was.

PS you might recognize their officiant, she’s Alli’s best friend and is the lead actress in the television series Reign. Cool, right?!

Enjoy loves!

PPS Follow Alli on Instagram, her account @inspireandmove is so inspiring for those of you wanting to lead a healthy, active lifestyle!

LATELY by Monique Pantel

I've been shooting like crazy ever since stepping off the plane from my dreamy trip to Portugal. I've been trying to keep you guys in the loop on Instagram but I figured a proper updated blog post would be nice for you amazing people who read my blog. This summer has been a bit of a magical whirlwind. All of my clients, all of my couples. I'm just in love with you all and feel SO lucky. Here's what's new...

Here's what's new and exciting:


lululemon Ambassador

Lululemon asked me to be their lifestyle ambassador. It means a lot of things, but overall, it's an incredible compliment and opportunity that I'm SO grateful for. You'll also be able to see my work printed on massive light boxes in their store. I'll be working on collaboration projects with them in the future, so I will definitely keep you posted via my Instagram!


PicTime Collaboration

I'm working on a collaboration with PicTime - an epic gallery delivery and print service for photographers. I don't want to be overly dramatic... but it's amazing and it's changed my business FOR SURE. I'm wrapping a YouTube video I shot for PicTime that includes a cute BTS shoot of one of my couples, showing some of my fave printed products from PicTime and of course some of my favourite features from the program. OH AND a special offer for my photographer friends!


Copal Yoga Retreat in Puglia, Italy 2019 (potential photo workshop, too!)

I'm SO excited for this you guys. Every time I'm away photographing a yoga retreat or hosting a workshop, I always get messages asking when the next one will be. SO. Consider this your heads up. An epic yoga retreat is happening in Italy July 2019 with Copal Retreat. I spent 3 weeks with Copal a few years ago at their oceanside residence in the Mayan Riviera. The details are still being worked out, but if you're interested in joining in this experience you can sign up for my newsletter here or send me an email. Once all of the deets are ironed out, I'll email you guys all of the exciting info!

Prairie Love Festival

My favourite weekend of the entire year is coming up in a few short weeks. Think yoga, connection, nature, community, workshops, inspiration,  incredible food and belly laughs. I started Prairie Love Festival years ago with my bff Rachelle. My only involvement now is shooting their promotional campaigns and hosting creative photography workshops over the course of the weekend - but - this weekend is SO special. We host some of the world's most epic yoga teachers. It still blows my mind. If you're interested in a weekend of self- love and finding inspiration through movement, nature and creativity, you can snag 10% off of your Prairie Love ticket using the code PANTEL10 here.


Heart Project L'Arche Winnipeg

My heart projects honestly make my heart burst. I'm working on a very special photography and film project about a woman named Linda who recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a bride and walking down the aisle. It was one of the sweetest moments I've ever seen in my life and I can't wait to share more of it with you.
