About

We are Chelsea and Steven, a husband/wife team of artists passionate about capturing genuine love stories through artistic, emotive photography and films. On the wedding day, you might catch Steven joking with the groomsmen while keeping them on schedule, flying his drone, running a tight ship with family portraits, or taking a shot of whiskey at the end of the night with the groom. You'll find me hugging the bride's mom when the emotions of the day hit her, prioritizing alone time for the bride and groom to have a moment together away from all the noise, or bossing my husband around (Steven made me say this). Steven is recognized for his imaginative drone work, unconventional silhouette portraits, and fun personality. I鈥檓 known for my artistic vision, knack for capturing genuine laughter and tears, and personable, friendly attitude with everyone. We are both genuinely obsessed with traveling to new places, raising our two beautiful children, and repeatedly rewatching every episode of The Office while we edit. Being part of our couples' wedding days is such an honor and a dream for the both of us. We love creating art that our clients and their families will cherish forever.

Truly Amazing!!

Where do I even begin?? Chelsea & Steven were hands down the best photographers we could have had capturing our wedding. They made everyone feel comfortable behind the camera and made sure to capture the most unique & precious moments from our day. Words are truly not enough to express Chelsea and Steven's talent. Their creative vision and attention to detail is so impressive. There photos and videos tell such a unique story & they were truly able to capture the feeling of our special day so that we can relive it over and over again, forever! They took every single bit of stress off of us when it came to all photo/video needs. We got to sit back and soak in our day while they were making magic happen behind the camera.

We were truly SO lucky to have Flightless Bird capturing our day. Words will never be enough to express how thankful we are! We love you Chelsea & Steven, you will DEFINITELY be seeing us in the future for all our photo needs as our family grows!

Amazing photographers

Chelsea and Steven are the dream team! They are very responsive, easy to work with, and so wonderful at what they do. We knew we wanted to hire them from the first moment we laid eyes on their online gallery, but once we had our first conversation with them there was no doubt they would be the perfect fit. Every single one of our wedding photos is so magical, well thought-out, and captures us so well. My wife and I are so glad we get to relive our wedding day forever with these gorgeous photographs, and would definitely recommend Flightless Bird to anyone looking for breathtaking pictures taken by truly top notch folks.
