OKAY SO HERE'S THE THING:
Being a past bride myself, I remember being in the exact situation that you guys are in right now. Even though there is so much to get excited about, you guys are in the midst of making some pretty big decisions for your wedding day and choosing the perfect photographer to capture it all is huge. I mean, it's a pretty big day and you want your images to be beyond perfect. Let's be real... these photos are going to be on the wall for a very long time. What are the things that matter most to you and your future hubby?
What boxes should be checked for you to feel confident you made the best decision choosing your photographer?
You want to look incredible. I know the feeling, getting in front of the camera can be nerve-racking. You need a master poser who will make you feel and look amazing.
You want your entire wedding party to have an amazing time. Like "She picked great dresses and gave us an awesome time" kinda day. "AND the pics were actually fun!"
You want an actual expert. Someone who has been doing this for a while with insurance, backup equipment, and the whole 9 yards. Someone with the reviews to prove it.
You want a timeless look to your forever photos. Not something that looks like an insta filter. Something that will be beautiful in 20 or 30 years and not tacky or dated.
You want a vendor who is going to be there every step of the way. Not someone who is going to take your deposit and then show up on your wedding day. You want someone who cares.
You want an artist. Anyone can pick up a camera. You need someone who will make your day look like a million bucks and capture the candid moments that melt your heart.
YOUR GIRL CAN CHECK ALL THESE BOXES AND THEN SOME
(CASUALLY BRUSHES OFF SHOULDERS)
But more than that...
You deserve to have all of this and more from your wedding photographer. You two deserve an amazing experience, wonderful pictures that you look stunning in, and the confidence of knowing you hired a true professional who will capture every artistic angle and detail of your day. Your wedding will be over before you know it and after you put rings on each other's fingers and share a piece of cake all you will be left with is your memories and your pictures. It's so important to me that my couples understand how dedicated I am to these concepts. It's important to me that I serve amazing people who are head-over-heels in love with each other and truly passionate about working with me. That's when the magic happens. When my clients and I have that instant bond and they know I see their vision, understand their concerns, and that I have their backs 100%. Just like I am passionate about my work - I am just as passionate about the couples behind it all. I want to make sure we are the perfect match. You are going to be spending a lot of time with your photographer and it's so important you feel like a friend is showing up on your wedding day and not some rando with a camera.
ALRIGHT CHELSEA, HOW DO WE KNOW IF WE'RE THE PERFECT MATCH?
You believe your bouquet is just as important as your gorgeous dress. Everyone knows the "bigger the better" totally applies to bouquets too.
OKAY, SO WHO IS THIS PERSON WHO IS ABOUT TO MAKE ALL OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY DREAMS COME TRUE??
I'M SO GLAD YOU ASKED
Fueled by equal parts of skinny vanilla lattes and sweet tea, I spend most of my days capturing the kinds of images that take your breath away. My style is all about classic, romantic images that will make you swoon. Your story, your love, is beautiful and it deserves to be captured beautifully in images you will treasure for years to come.
I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on grandma's back porch. I believe in serving the soulmates and giving them an unforgettable experience. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create breathtaking, timeless portraits and making those memories tangible for my clients. I believe in the legacy of your love.
You could say I've had a passion for photography for a long time! Ever since I got to develop my first negative in a dark room I was hooked. All through high school and college I was constantly taking pictures of friends and family. I finally decided to give my passion a chance and I haven't looked back! These days I average around 30 weddings a year. I only take on a certain amount of couples to give them the attention they deserve.
LET'S GET DOWN TO THE MEAT AND THE POTATOES
MY ESSENTIAL COLLECTION
8 hours of wedding day coverage
complimentary engagement session
online gallery for viewing, sharing, and downloading images
ADD AN HOUR
MINI PARENT ALBUM
So you might have noticed that I only have one package and the coverage isn't below 8 hours.
I believe in a simple, straightforward method when it comes to booking. I think my clients should have the chance to build their own collection of services that best suit their needs. Also, I have shot a lot of weddings and I believe that a full wedding day should at least be 8 hours. I try and stress to all my couples that this day only happens once and the one thing you will not regret is doing your best to slow down the day so you can enjoy it and not feel rushed or overwhelmed. If you think you still need less than 8 hours I also have an elopement collection or I will work within the hours of coverage you think you need! Please contact me for a custom quote!
WHAT PAST BRIDES HAVE SAID
Working with Chelsea was an absolute dream! She is so kind and made me feel at ease about wedding plans and offered great ideas when I needed additional input. She cares about all the details with you and goes out of her way to help create a day you will cherish forever. Chelsea was also a blast when it came time for all the photos. She has a great eye and made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Our photo gallery turned out absolutely incredible! I am so glad to have our memories showcased so beautifully. Chelsea and her team made me and my husband feel like rockstars and our wedding day was truly a dream come true! Chelsea offers high-quality photos alongside the best customer service and will be a vendor choice you will not regret!
