    Chelsea is the best

    Chelsea is amazing. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, she is also a delight to be around. As is true for many couples this year, our wedding plans were turned upside down by CoVID. Chelsea helped us plan the perfect elopement and document the experience in a way that made our family and friends feel included although they could not be with us. Due to intimate size of our elopement party, she even signed our license as one of our witnesses!

    Amazing! Wonderful! Call Chelsea now!

    Like the procrastinator I am, I totally dropped the ball and did not even start to find a wedding photographer until way too late. Luckily, Chelsea fell from the heavens and not only had our wedding date available but was also prepared to do an initial meeting with us the same day we reached out (on New Years Eve no less). What else can I say about Chelsea other than that she is FANTASTIC. We were having a small, COVID friendly wedding that I was planning myself and she offered us so many fun ideas that brought our wedding to the next level. Have you ever been to a wedding where every single guest commented on how great the photographer was? It was like she was part of the family, and honestly, I didn’t even care what the photos looked like because she was just incredible to have around. The photos of course though, were gorgeous. Chelsea is so talented, and she completely captured the light, beachy aesthetic that we were going for. If I ever need a photographer in the future, she will be my first call – and she should be yours too!!

    Truly The Best Decision We Made

    Go for it. That little voice in the back of your head that's telling you not to settle, listen to it. Because with Chelsea, you won't be. Chelsea is more than a seriously talented and creative photographer. Once she gets to the scene, it feels like your oldest friend has arrived. Not only can she capture the shots you envisioned, she'll catch the all laughter, the intimate moments between each breath, the artsy black and whites, the sweeping wide angles, and everything in between. Her energy is contagious and she makes you feel incredible throughout, which allows you to drop your guard and be in the moment. We couldn't have imagined a better experience than to have Chelsea shoot our desert elopement. I don't think I'll hire another photographer again.

    There are a lot of amazing photographers in Hawaii, but Chelsea is truly a gem! I have been blessed to work with her many times and I have been able to observe her as a professional, an artist and a colleague (turned dear friend). What I can tell you is this... From the first communication with her, my clients are instantly put at ease with her genuine charm and desire to make their wedding photos great. She exudes a positive and excited vibe that somehow makes you even more excited to get married. This energy carries over to the wedding day where she is miraculously able to direct and entertain her subjects while at the same time taking the most amazingly natural and candid photos. Not only have I observed her technique during my clients' weddings, but I have also had the pleasure of being the subject of a few of her photos. Having had professional portraits taken before, I knew how awkward and un photogenic I could be, but to my very pleasant surprise I had a really hard time deciding between 80 stellar images! If you are looking for gorgeous photos and an incredibly lovely and genuine human being to take them, Chelsea is your gal!

  • Knots & Shots Hawaii Wedding Officiants

    Chelsea is an absolute joy to work with. She literally radiates positivity and laughter which reflects in the images she captures. If you're looking for professionalism with a personality of gold, look no further than Chelsea.

  • National Tropical Botanical Garden Park & Outdoor Weddings

    National Tropical Botanical Garden recently hosted a wedding, photo shoot at the McBryde Garden at the Waterfall location. It was an amazing morning, beautiful weather and what a happy playful couple. Chelsea was fabulous with a beautiful personality, easy going and super detailed oriented. For every photo shot she would ask the couple to move and pose in so many different ways to create that perfect photo. Great job! I would highly recommend Chelsea Abril Photography.
