We'll take your experience one step further, because your photos deserve to be showcased on something other than a screen. I'll help you display your photos in an heirloom album and custom wall gallery so you and future generations can enjoy your images every day.


We'll get to know each other as friends, and I'll help you feel comfortable in front of the camera with witty jokes and silly prompts so we can capture candid and natural photos that showcase your personalities.

If you ever feel stressed during the planning process or even on your wedding day, don't worry! I'm the friend who always has a backup plan, and will help you feel at ease. I'll create a custom timeline, family photo list, and rainy day plan so that you don't have to worry and can be in the moment on your special day.

The Joyful process

Choosing a photographer can be an overwhelming process. The phone chat is a great way for us to get to know each other and see if we are a good mutual fit. 

Hey friend,
let's Chat!

We connected on our phone chat, and you're starting to think that I might be the photographer you've been looking for. We'll meet in person or virtually to go over a custom proposal with package options.

We're starting to feel like friends, and I'm so excited to capture your special day. To secure the date, and book me as your photographer there is a 40% retainer and contract to sign.

A few months before the wedding, we'll meet to go over a timeline and family photo list. On your wedding day, you'll be able to enjoy every moment and not worry about the details.

About 6 weeks after your wedding, you will receive a link to an online gallery with photos from your special day. You'll love seeing and reliving all of the moments from your wedding day.

Once you've had a chance to look at your gallery, we'll get together for a virtual viewing party. I'll help you get your photos off your screen and on display in your home in a custom wall gallery and heirloom album.

Virtual Viewing Party

It's incredibly special for me to capture a couple from when they start their life together on their wedding day, to down the road when they become parents. You can rest assured that I'll be your life long photographer. 

We'll Never say goodbye

"Chelsey was sweet, flexible, and fun from the start. My fiancé and I were both very nervous/uncomfortable in front of the camera and Chelsey helped guide us with what to do and provided a light environment to make us feel at ease."

Rachael & Aaron

"We did a family portrait session with Chelsey. She was such a gem to work with! She was so kind and made the session easy. Best of all, the photos came out so beautiful! We would recommend Chelsey to anyone and will work with her in the future."
