Hire Chelsea Literally Immediately

Chelsea is an incredible photographer and person. We just had our engagement session with her and she made us feel so confident and gorgeous, but she was also super fun. Like, we legitimately had a great time wandering around taking pictures with her and then when we got the gallery back we were stunned with how beautifully everything came out-- it totally exceeded our expectations (and our expectations were sky high). THANK YOU CHELSEA YOU ARE AMAZING.

Chelsea is the best wedding photographer in the world!!!

Chelsea deserves an infinity star review!! If you are looking for a wedding photographer who will provide A+++ photos, capture all the important moments and provide nothing but good vibes from start to finish, book Chelsea right now! She's worth every penny. Booking our photographer was one of the most important decisions we made for our wedding, and from the first time we met with Chelsea we knew she was the perfect fit. We first met with her in February of 2020, she stuck with us through COVID delays and venue changes and ultimately photographed our wedding in August 2022. It was a record-hot day, but she still had boundless energy and helped keep everyone in a party mood. Not only is she an incredible photographer technical-wise, she's also loads of fun and just radiates constant joy. That's exactly what you want on your wedding day! When we renew our vows someday, Chelsea will once again be the first vendor we book!!

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!

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.
