Well, this is where I jump in with a hug and a checklist (or 12) in hand.

You’ve practically found the end of the internet searching for the perfect wedding photographer who will not only help you feel natural and beautiful in front of the camera but will also guide you through all the tough parts of planning your wedding photography - I mean, hey, it’s not like you’ve done this before!

I was - and still am! - nervous to “be myself” with that big ol’ lens in my face. I get it. You want to look and feel like yourself in your wedding (and engagement!) photos but you’re nervous about what to wear for your engagement session and oh yeah, your fiance hates having his photo taken.

Nervous to be in front of the camera?

I’m Chelsea and I’m crazy about my husband, my baby son, our rescue pup Argos, traveling the world, all things France, live music, shopping, a good glass of red wine at the end of a long day, and Jesus. I photograph brides who want a beautiful, timeless wedding story told with a creative eye but who also need a pro to walk them through the ins and outs of planning their wedding photography so they don’t miss a single moment that needs to be documented. With a masters degree in journalism, four years of wedding experience, and lots of happy brides, I am just the girl you’re looking for. 

I’ll be with you every step of the way – from planning your engagement session to your wedding day timeline to your wedding album (and some boogying on the dance floor thrown in!) – so you know you’re taken care of and can focus on what truly matters: planning your future marriage.
