Chelsea was everything I wanted in a photographer. She was fun and sweet and very accommodating, She picked a beautiful location for our engagement photos. She immediately put us at ease and made our shoot a lot of fun! She directed us which was so helpful because it's hard to be "natural" when there's a camera in front of you. The end result were gorgeous pictures that truly captured "us", laughing and just being really happy. Our photos were everything I wanted and I'm so glad I chose Chelsea to capture such a special time in our lives. She was more than just a photographer, she became a friend.

We just got our engagement photos back and my fiancé and I were shocked, the photos are stunning! I can be really shy around the camera but Chelsea had us smiling and laughing the entire time! She is not only an incredible photographer but also a great person! She's so positive, helpful and just the absolute sweetest! As soon as she sent me two photos (same day) I texted her right back and was already trying to think of more possible photoshoots I could do with her! And this is coming from someone that usually hates the camera... ! I recommend this girl to everyone! She's pretty incredible!

Chelsea was a breath of fresh air. I tend to be more on the reserved side when it comes to having my photo taken and she made me feel so at ease. She was such a hype girl! Every moment was full of fun and laughter, and you felt like you've known her your entire life. She knew exactly what she needed from us and the results were breathtaking. I couldn't thank her enough for her expertise and keen eye for creativity.
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!
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 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.
