the real, the raw, and everything in between.

This is your day to sit back, relax and be in the moment. To not worry about the timeline. But instead, just let loose on the dance floor, singing your heart out, alongside your squad.

So throw those hands in the air and soak up the time with your family and friends. And just know that with me by your side, you're going to get an awesome gallery full of the real, the raw, and everything in between.

timeless photos, real couples

If you've got timeless photos, natural poses and true colors on your list of must haves for your wedding photos, then grab a pen and start checking things off. Because I'm going to deliver photos from your day that look and feel just as things were.

After all, I'm assuming you chose your wedding colors for a reason. Right?! And I'm guessing you actually want to look like your unique, cool, REAL selves. So, staged smiles and stiff poses probably didn't make the cut.

am I right??

“Chelsea’s pictures are REAL LIFE! No super moody or seriously washed-out editing, but real people experiencing real moments, with exceptionally vibrant colors that make you feel like you’re there living that moment with them!”

Ellie, bride

Nope. Instead, you'll get beautifully classic photos mixed in with all the quirky photos you could ever want.

Plus the following services that are like the cherry on top.​​​​​​​

Weddings

starting at $3400

Open communication - I'm quick to communicate and very transparent. Which means we'll probably talk frequently about the special details and people you want captured so I'll know what to be on the lookout for on your wedding day. We'll also talk through anything that makes you feel nervous so you'll have no doubts as to whether or not you'll love your photos.


Vendor recommendations - Still needing a florist? Videographer? Hair and makeup team? Planner? I've got you! I have a trusted list of people to help make your wedding planning experience less stressful and less time consuming.

Venue familiarity - In case I haven't worked at your venue before (there are a lot in Southern California!), I'll arrive early on your wedding day to scope the best spots for lighting. Or, better yet, if it's nearby, I'll join you and/or your planner for a walk through beforehand.


Timeline creation - I'll help you create a detailed timeline to make sure we have time throughout the day for all of the photos you want. For you to actually spend time with your guests. And with a little wiggle room for when anything unexpected takes place. (It always does.)

Sneak peaks - I'll deliver your full wedding gallery about 4-weeks after your wedding. But, in the meantime, get excited to begin reliving the wedding right away. I'll send some sneak peaks a few days after the wedding. So, like me, you can immediately post on social media.


Digital download - Once your photos are edited, I'll send you a link to your online gallery. You'll be able to easily view, download, print and share your high res photos anytime, anywhere. (And if you're interested in an album, either before or after your wedding day - let me know!)

Engagements

Trust me, you definitely want an engagement session. Not only will you receive beautiful photos of you two at your favorite coffee shop or local brewery to use for your Save the Dates, but you'll feel better prepared for your wedding day. After you've practiced in front of the camera during your engagement session, your wedding day will feel like a breeze. Promise.

Boudoir photos are the BEST. They always make a sweet surprise for your boo. And there's nothing quite like 'em to boost your confidence and comfort in front of the camera. We'll pick a place you feel most comfortable, crank some JT or Beyonce, and have the best time.

“We received our wedding gallery about a month after our wedding day & it’s something I will never tire of. I look at the photos everyday & there isn’t one thing that was missed. The emotion & feel we wanted for the day is filled throughout our gallery. The photos are beautiful & classic. When our friends & family ask to view photos, I ALWAYS get asked who our photographer was.”
