It is so important to me that my couples can trust me as a friend to capture their weddings. I do not take it lightly that they have chosen me to photograph one of the biggest days of their lives! I love to truly get to know them beyond their time behind my lens so that I am not just another vendor showing up on their wedding day. So when you become a Chelsea Allegra couple, I can promise you beautiful images AND a friend for life.

I offer several wedding coverage packages to best suit your wedding day vision. All packages include a complimentary engagement session, a second photographer at the wedding, an online gallery with high resolution digital download, a mobile app of gallery highlights, and print release.

I am based in Wilmington, NC but I am available for weddings anywhere! I am always down for an adventure and I would be honored to come along with you on your wedding day...wherever it may be!

the wedding experience

the portrait experience

It's never easy getting in front of the camera. Like, what are you supposed to do with your hands? I totally get it. But you've got nothing to worry about because I strive to make all of my sessions a fun EXPERIENCE for everyone involved. Cause let's be honest, posing can be quite exhausting.

So during our session, you can expect to laugh, play, and maybe get a *little* bit of physical activity in. And I'll be there to snap the sweet in-between moments through it all so we capture the real you.

Before we even meet on session day, I will let you know exactly how to best prepare for our time together and answer ANY and all of your questions. Not sure about what to wear? Text me some outfit pics! Nervous about posing with your fiance? I promise I GOTCHU, friend.

You may or may not hear me screaming with excitement about how cute you are, how good you look, or how terribly sweet you are together throughout the entire session. Sorry in advance for the weird noises that might come out of my mouth--but my clients are just so AMAZING and I can't help myself. :)


"My fiance and I had our engagement photo shoot with Chelsea and we were very pleased with our experience! She is super laid back and made us feel at ease. We felt awkward when we first arrived but she did a great job of directing us and by the end we were laughing. My fiance does not like taking pictures in general and by the end he said "that was actually pretty fun". 

"I don't even know where to begin! Chelsea takes the most beautiful photos that feel so natural! She makes it comfortable even for the shy couple :) I have always dreaded getting my photo taken but I am genuinely excited to see my pictures after she shoots them! Thank you so much Chelsea! We are so grateful to have these moments captured to cherish forever!"

"Chelsea did an AMAZING job photographing our wedding. Not only were her prices very reasonable, she was a pleasure to work with, is very talented and made great, quick deliveries! If I got married again I would hire her again in a heartbeat!"
