Hi, i'm Chelsey

get in touch

Hi friend! I’m Chelsey. I love traveling and am always planning or dreaming about my next trip. On most adventures you can find me in the mountains hiking alongside my husband, John, or trying new things for the first time whether it’s paddle boarding or having a recently released sour beer on tap. 

My favorite memories are those involving John and my family so it makes sense that I am drawn to capturing couples and families that enjoy every moment with each other.

Joy is my middle name and it has become the inspiration behind what I do. The personal experience and photos I capture are a friendly reminder about the joy we feel every day with the people we love most. 

I'm so glad you're here!

I want to get to know you so that when I have this big, intimidating camera pointed at you - you don't even notice. We're comfortable with each other. I'm no longer a third wheel with a camera, but I'm a friend here to capture your day. I'll say silly, witty comments and give you fun prompts that will make you laugh and be in the moment with each other. That's the key to getting genuine photos that really reflect who you are as a couple and family.

My Aproach

kind words

"I look at my photos every day and love them more and more. When the big day is over, the photos are what you have left. Chelsey is amazing. She gave me everything I wanted and more. 12/10 would recommend."
