The PhotographerHi, I'm Chelsea! get to know me :)

Long story short: I’m a professional wedding and lifestyle photographer, and I am obsessed with my job.

Short story long: I am a wedding and lifestyle natural light photographer currently calling Florida home (with additional roots in New England and the UK) – traveling wherever your adventure leads you!  I live for love, light, and making photos that make you feel something.  My style can be described as light, bright and film inspired – warm tones are my jam.

During wedding days you’ll find me in the midst of everything, capturing the vibe of the day by covering all of the important moments, details and scenery –  without missing the fleeting candid moments in between that you might not have the time to stop and appreciate during the craziness of the day.  I’m everywhere and nowhere all at once…many of the unseen moments end up being the favorites!

During lifestyle sessions, I love taking the time to slow down and shoot in beautiful light in beautiful places – getting a good mix of editorial-like poses and candids that show connection – while I offer up just enough instruction to get good poses, prompt real emotions and interactions, I strive to let your photos show the real you at the same time.  The default worthy profile pics are a given, but I pride myself on my knack for going deeper, for capturing people’s personalities and connections.  A pretty photo of a couple kissing in the sunset looks great on any wall, but there’s something to be said about a candid photo that you’ll look back on when you’re 80 that reminds you of what your soul mates laugh sounded like in your 20’s.  We’re freezing time here people, and I want to be sure we’re choosing the real moments.  That’s what sets me apart.

When you book me for your wedding, I’m investing in you and your story just as much as you’re investing in me.  All of my collections come with an engagement session because that time is valuable for us to get to know each other.  I mean, I’ll be following you around for at least 8 hours on the big day…lets get you a little used to the camera first!  I’ll also be hands on with your wedding schedule because I want to be sure we will have the right light for portraits and enough time built in so that you aren’t stressing any more than you have to.

I have the BEST job in the entire world, I’m blessed with this opportunity and am honored each and every time one of my clients lets me into their family, their life moments and their memories.  I never imagined my passion would be my livelihood but I’m pretty stoked it ended up this way.  Let’s make magic together!
