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’m 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.
We offer options for nearly every budget and level of coverage.

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.Sent on 12/23/2020

Like old friends!
As a wedding planner, I recommend and work with Chelsea and Steven often but hadn't had the chance to be behind their camera myself. This week we had a shoot with them and we couldn't have been happier! They are so much fun to work with and help you feel comfortable behind the camera. It was freezing and they made sure we had coat breaks and took care of us so well. Chelsea has such a kind spirit and Steven is hilarious- they are a great duo to be around! I would recommend Flightless Bird to anyone.Sent on 11/27/2020
