I believe every person has a story worth telling. And every wedding has a love story worth captureing and sharing. I focus on capturing the day as it is, not as it "was supposed to be." Often, the most precious moments of a wedding day are the moments between "the moments." I strive to capture the essense of a couple's story, family and vision on their wedding day. Long after the flowers fade and the food has been consumed, there will only be the visual and media representations of your wedding day left to take you back to those moments.
Let me tell your story... the planned and the unplanned parts of it because it is all beautiful and all worth documenting and remembering for generations to come.
I do not consider myself a traditional photographer, but rather a contemporary, relational photographer with a documentary flare. When there is the need or desire for posed, traditional shots, I will often coach the couple on where and how to start their pose and then encourage them to "just be" and capture the raw emotion that evolves... from intimacy and stolen kisses to playfulness and laughter. Its all part of the story.
I strive to bring a sense of calmness and peace to those I am around on the wedding day,especially the bride and groom. I firmly believe the two most important vendors a couple should choose are their photographer and wedding planner because of the amount of personal contact and connection needed. I meet with each couple beforehand to ensure a personal and comfortable connection outside the wedding day. I have been known to take on the role of wedding coordinator, event director, chief flower deliverer, water and food caterer and whatever else is needed in the heat of the moment.

We loved working with Chelsea for our engagement photos! She is fun and makes you feel super relaxed in front of the camera. Also, she is very flexible if you have preferences for location. We had our photos in downtown Annapolis and took our photos in multiple locations around the town. She shows you the pictures so you can see how they look and had lots of ideas about different poses or angles. I would recommend her to any of my friends for photos!Sent on 08/07/2016

Chelsea's warm, easy demeanor put my husband and I, our family and our guests at ease. She was flexible and enthusiastic about every shot! And her photos turned out gorgeous. Her quick turnaround time was a near miracle compared to what my friends have experienced with other photographers! Chelsea is the type of photographer who will surprise you with her thoughtfulness and artistry, and the type of person who you will want to find an occasion to work with again.Sent on 10/03/2013

Chelsea brings an incredible sense of calm, peace, and happiness on what could be a stressful day. She is great at managing personalities among family members and at ensuring that the couple receives exactly the kind of images they are hoping for. We couldn't be more pleased with our engagement and wedding photos! Her ability to capture the joy of the day and the spontaneous moments was key. Couldn't be happier with how it all turned!Sent on 10/02/2013
