The moment your mom zips up your dress. The looks of surprise and delight as you pop the cork off a bottle of champagne. The ugly crying during your vows. 

These are the moments you want to remember.

She photographed our wedding and I couldn’t have been more satisfied with the photos and her service. Her bubbly personality made our special day so perfect and I received so many compliments from our bridal party and guests on how great she made everyone feel. On top of her awesome personality, her service is second to none. I received all of our photos within the time frame she promised. Her work is amazing, I would definitely recommend her to any future brides or anyone needing professional photography done.

Chelsea is absolutely incredible. 

"Chelsea was our engagement and wedding photographer and did an amazing job! She was such a pleasure to work with and made us feel so comfortable during both sessions. All of our photos are gorgeous - I have so many favorites to choose from! "


"I highly recommend Chelsea to capture your most special moments!"

She was professional and timely in the planning process, flexible with arrangements the day of, and friendly to everyone in our family. On our wedding day we had a short window of time and Chelsea was so efficient in getting photographs of our ceremony, our families, and us (the new bride and groom). She was directive with poses, which shows her experience. She had a few preview pictures for us THAT NIGHT, which was amazing! We loved the pictures she shared and can’t wait to see the rest. I would definitely recommend Chelsea to anyone!


"Chelsea was a joy to work with!"

We booked Chelsea for our engagement photos and wedding and she exceeded our expectations. She was very professional, prepared, and always kept us “in the loop” on the next steps of the process. We are not models by ANY means, but she made us feel so comfortable in intimate pictures of the two of us. I often find myself just mindlessly looking at our pictures just to remember what a beautiful and special day we had. Our day was our version of perfect, and thanks to Chelsea, she captured those precious memories.
