Hi, I'm Chrisél, the girl behind the lens of Chrisél Mouton Photography. I am a Cape Town based photographer specializing in Wedding and Fashion Photography.
Here's a little bit about me. Early mornings, sure no problem, bonus points if I can start my day with the usual bootlegger coffee. Full time photographer now, but holy moly it's been quite a journey till here.
I studied Acting. Freshly graduated and now I had to take on this thing called "Adulting". It was quite a challenge entering the intimidating film industry as a youngster. Working on my craft and assisting on film sets lost it’s magic after a while. Goodness gracious I had to take a break from this industry. So I packed my bags, got on a plane and yes, I became a flight attendant for Emirates.
After a while I started missing this crazy entertainment industry. I arrived back in SA and became a radio DJ on one of the local radio stations. 4 Years of "chatting"as a career and singing and dancing in musicals, it was time for yet another change.
From the moment I picked up my first professional camera, it was most definitely a love at first sight situation. And so the journey began. This has been the most rewarding experience of my life. Being a full time photographer is a DREAM come true!! Oh...another dream, to own all the animals in the world. Still figuring this one out....
I'm shooting with my heart and soul and capturing stories along the way. I'm so excited to share my passion and I can’t wait to capture magical memories with you.
