The Wedding Experience

"She is so personable and kind, and makes being in front of the camera feel so natural and comfortable. Our photos came out gorgeous. She’s got such an eye! If I were you, I wouldn’t hesitate to book her for your next special occasion."

"Hiring Chelsea for our engagements and wedding was without a doubt the best and easiest decision we made during the wedding process."

Over the last 5 years, I've had the privilege of photographing countless beautiful engagements & weddings. In 2023 & 2024, I am taking on a very limited number of weddings.  If you are interested in a Wedding or Engagement Session, please fill in the Contact Form.

"Chelsea is the master at discreetly capturing those magical, hidden moments that are reminders of how special and important life is." 

"magical, hidden moments . . ."

ARiana, 2019 Mom to be

"She makes being in front of the camera feel so natural and comfortable. Our photos came out gorgeous. She’s got such an eye! If I were you, I wouldn’t hesitate to book her for your next special occasion."

"Beyond expectations!"

Jamie & Jonah, 2022 Couple

"From start to finish, Chelsea was such a pleasure to work with. She gave us so much confidence in our investment for photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. Our photos turned out so natural and stunning. We constantly get told that they should be in a magazine! 

"Photos that should be in a magazine! "

You will receive your photos via an online gallery within six weeks after the wedding. Here, you can download, print, and share any images you like! At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your heirloom images through professional prints and albums. 

Heirlooms in Your hands

All of the planning and decisions are finally complete. Now it's time for you to enjoy each and every second. I will arrive to the venue (or getting-ready location) and make sure to scout out the best locations for bride & groom portraits as well as family formals. I'll be there with you the whole day so, whatever you need, I am all yours! I cannot wait to artfully document your timeless wedding so it can be cherished for generations.

Wedding Day

5.

I'll get in touch with you about two months before the wedding to start chatting about wedding day specifics. I've crafted a simple questionnaire where you can share any special details, family formal shot lists, traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. Even though this is a scheduled check in, never hesitate to reach out to me for help & advice at any point during the planning process. As someone who's captured many weddings and just planned my own, I know I can be of help!

All of my wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session. Not only does this allow us to get to know one another more, but it gets you used to being in front of the camera. Most people feel a little awkward when being photographed at first. Fear not, though. I've photographed countless couples and invested in industry-renowned education that has taught me how to make my couples feel and look their absolute best in photos.

Engagements

3.

I'll send over a booking proposal for you to look over. To book your date, all you need to do is electronically sign the proposal and provide a 30% deposit that goes toward the total cost! Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few things to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Reserve

My favorite part of what I do is getting to know the people who I have the honor of photographing. Before you secure your date with me, I'd love to set up a coffee date or Zoom call to meet you face-to-face. This will make planning your experience going forward even more tailored to your unique needs.
