About

Your wedding day is going to be beautiful and fun, your wedding photos should be that, too. I live for candid images, the ones that will give you all of the feels when you look back at them. With a background in photojournalism and over 10 years of photography experience, I know when to step in and help you look awesome, and when to stand back and let the moment unfold. If you are looking for natural, candid images with vibrant colors, I'm your girl!

I am based in Southern California and Hawaii, and always down to photograph a couple anywhere they want!

Unforgettable experience

Where do I even start! From the very first interaction we had with Chelsea she has been pleasure to work with. Planning an elopement from the other side of the country is definitely not easy and we had to change our date due to my husband's work schedule, Chelsea was so accommodating. She put our mind at ease immediately. She was informative from vendors, places to go, things to do on the island and everything in between.
We were also worried that it would be awkward to have a "stranger" take these intimate pictures. But as soon as we met her in person the first time, it felt like reuniting with an old friend for an adventure. Anyone can take pictures but I think it's crucial to have that connection with your photographer and we definitely had that.
I can go on and on but just book her already! Lol seriously couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The easiest decision for my elopement

Chelsea was such an important part of me and my husband鈥檚 special day! Since we decided to elope, pictures were the big promise we gave to our families and friends, and she did not disappoint! Not only were the pictures beyond gorgeous, she is also just an absolutely lovely human being. So personable and fun! We are, like a lot of people, pretty camera shy and awkward. But she captured all of the fun and it made for a perfect day and perfect pictures to bring home. If you are looking for a photographer for a special day, this is your girl!

Book Chelsea now

From the first few texts Chelsea and I had, I knew she was going to be our photographer for our very small Turtle Bay elopement. She helped me with suggestions for a makeup/hair service and my flowers (which were phenomenal) My pictures are so so great, creative, and captured our day exactly how I pictured it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the process so easy.
