Your joy brings me joy and I am so excited to MEET YOU!

Hi There, I'm Chelsea!

I prefer hugs over handshakes and I will probably (definitely) cry on your wedding day.


My husband and I met on Tinder and we've been together ever since our first date.


I fell in love with portrait photography after taking my best friend's engagement photos on a whim.


quick facts:

I believe that finding a soulmate is one of the greatest gifts that God has given us. I could cry just thinking about how happy I am to have found mine. So I absolutely love working with couples who are down to get both adventurous and intimate, and allow me to guide them through their photographs as they simply get lost in each other. These moments are something I will always cherish and never take for granted.

My clients are more than just clients to me. I want to celebrate every moment of your engagement, cry on your wedding day together, or bask in the joy of you growing your sweet family!

let's create a celebratory experience of your engagement through marriage + beyond
