My name is Chelsea, and I'd like to welcome you to my colorful little corner of the interwebs! I'm a Hawaii-based intimate wedding and adventurous elopement/couples photographer capturing epic wide shots, and the up close and giggly moments. I love to make people so comfortable that they rid themselves of that “I’m too awkward for photos” feeling, because that's where the fun begins! I also double as your adventure guide as we hike to my favorite views in the world. If you like what you see and think my laid-back style would be a great fit for your intimate day or you're ready to go on an adventure for some amazing views....
Do you love fun, light, colorful images that feel and look like you? Same!
Your choice of location (and partner) is pretty amazing. Your photos should match.
Whether I'm working or cruising, you can usually find me in my favorite place - smack dab in the middle of the mountains and the ocean. I am obsessed with salty hair, sandy feet, and taking naps under the sun after surfing or scuba diving. I'm a frequent traveler, and I'd love to share my passion for the outdoors by adventuring with you, camera in hand, on the islands or wherever you are going!
I love photographing couples in their own little bubbles they have created together. See all the beach frolicks, cliff side kisses, and general adorableness in my galleries.
"I loved that there were moments that we forgot Chelsea was there. It was intimate, free flowing, not a single moment felt staged, it felt incredibly natural. I feel the day every time I see these photos."
